BBC Climbs Down over "Fairytale of New York"

Ì was shocked tonight when herself told me that BBC Radio 1 had
decided that "Fairytale of New York" was having its naughty words
edited out. What a crock ! This is the quintessential Christmas song
with two folks looking back on their past and rueing the fact that it
didn't in any way live up to their expectations. An emigrants song
also and one that's very poignant (leaving out the fact that who would
have expected Shane Mc Gowan would outlive Kirsty Mc Coll ?).

However I've just seen on the BBC site that BBC Radio 1 has decided
that the song can now be played in its original fashion.

Thankfully sanity reigns once again.....

I could have been someone....and so could anyone...
