Only in the Guardian.

These two paragraphs in the guardian describing, who?

Last year, the British Labour shadow Transportation Secretary even called out XXXXXX for its lack of females, saying that the franchise setting a bad example for girl wannabe train engineers everywhere.

At first blush, XXXXXX and his friends seem rather placid and mild. And there are certainly a lot worse shows in terms of in-your-face violence, sexism, racism and classism. But looks can be deceiving: the constant bent of messages about friendship, work, class, gender and race sends my kid the absolute wrong message.

FFS. Some stupid woman is railing(sic) against the childrens’ programme, “Thomas the Tank Engine”.

I especially loved this comment after the article.


Go and read the drivel HERE.


  1. Nutter alert....

  2. The Guardian is an equal opportunities employer and the article was written by one of their token Ginger womyn.
    I'm sure she's there on merit, not just for being ginger in some box-ticking exercise.

  3. When you enter hospital for that life saving operation, you are told that your surgeon is female.She is rubbish as a surgeon but never mind, think of the diversity.

    I read this thing 'cold,' so to speak, and I honestly thought it was meant as a parody!

  5. What a load of drivel, My 3 year old daughter loves the programme and after an episode tells me who did what, and who did the wrong and the right things. I, nor she, care if they are pink, white, black, striped in purple or sand coloured with masks!
    It is a metaphor of life. Live with it! Idiot PC Journalists.
