BBC sacked Jon Holmes for being a white man… even though he works in radio. The BAFTA award-winning Now Show comic (47) was told he was being axed from the show (on which he’s worked for the past 19 years) to make way for ‘more women and diversity’

Our thanks to Lucian Valsan for spotting this. An extract:

Holmes’s axing follows the BBC’s April announcement of new diversity targets to ensure that women will make up half of its staff by 2020, including on screen, on air and in leadership roles. [Note: not in technical roles, tellingly. Hmm, why might that be?]

The Corporation is also aiming to increase the proportion of its workforce from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds to 15 per cent by the same date, while lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people should by then make up eight per cent of the staff.

It would be interesting to learn if Jon Holmes was previously aware of the BBC’s anti-male initiative, but said nothing publicly until personally affected by it. Why are so many men in denial about the blindingly obvious point that initiatives which advantage women must be disadvantaging men, and by extension, possibly them? The BBC’s feminist witches must cackle every time they get a man fired.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  1. Paul Jackson says:

    Jon Holmes recently published a memoir entitled A Portrait of an Idiot as a Young Man: Part memoir, part explanation as to why men are so rubbish.
    It seems that this self-flagellation and throwing his own sex under a bus, wasn’t enough to save his career from the feminazis at the BBC.

    My heart f***ing bleeds!

  2. If Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt have anything about them they should now resign from The Now Show.

    • Thanks Rick. They won’t resign, of course. They’ll be replaced by Kate Smurfwaite and Sandy Toxic, or other unfunny feminists, most of them lesbians, and the show will die. Humourless feminists – I know, ‘humourless’ is superfluous – have long been killing comedy on the BBC. The funniest comedy on the BBC today is Dad’s Army, filmed half a century ago.
