BBC 'Out With The Old...'

The BBC has been accused of being ageist. I have to agree. How come it's only babies who get swapped round on EastEnders? No one ever turns up to care home and mixes up the old folk. That's double standards.

This is the case of Countryfile presenter Miriam O'Reilly who was sacked when the TV show went to prime time. She says the BBC doesn't like old women.

I don't know about that. They play Madonna songs.

The tribunal found in her favour and accused the BBC of "social engineering" when it got rid of her.

Not liking old folk is one thing but "social engineering" sounds like something Hitler did.

I don't like ageist and I don't like the sound of social engineering but still, it's better than "unsocial engineering", which is when my neighbour tries to fix his car at 8am on a Sunday. Stupid old fart!
