.........
Or is this one of those "I've never seen star wars" moments where I find out I'm totally on my own on this?!

You're not on your own........ I've never seen Star Wars either.   ;D
I've seen star wars, but not convinced I've ever seen a picture of the royal in question.  I know shes a yank, so is she an African American (or whatever the politically correct term for a black American nowadays)?
AHEM!!  She is a 'person of colour'. ::)

I believe half-caste is the correct PC term.....or perhaps not.

He has always been a class 1 idiot, but in this country, which supposedly has freedom of speech, he should not be pilloried for saying stupid/controversial things; others equally have the right to respond in their own way - and they did.
As Voltaire was (wrongly) said to proclaim, "I may not agree with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it".

Ron.
I agree, Ron, to a point. But you could also say that the people criticising him have their right to do that, and the BBC have the right to sack someone for what they consider to be gross misconduct. Like most things, it works both ways.

'Rights' are subjective and, often, one persons rights can be trumped by another person's rights. i.e. The Sussex's rights to leave hospital with their newborn without people posting offensive tweets.

They are strongly in the public eye/domain and in a highly privileged position, so hardly a level playing field. Not to defend Baker, but there were bigger guns aimed at him; did he really have to lose his job?

Ron.
I am not defending or chastising anyone, Ron. Nowadays, the world works in a way which is alien to me, so I just get on with my life and let others get on with theirs. Some of the things my PC headteacher wife comes out with make me either want to laugh out loud or cry. The other day I used the term 'Deaf and dumb'. I was told that is a very offensive term and the correct one is 'Deaf and mute'.
Yeah.........I'd show you offensive if I didn't just want a quiet life.
It gets worse. I've just been informed, by the headmistress that it's 'Hearing impaired and mute'. FFS.  :(

Not Local is my preferred expression... In Crawley it's quite a broad spectrum  ::)
