Channel 4 is to front their alternative to the Queen’s Christmas speech with a veiled Muslim woman this year. Hmmm, I wonder if this will also go out on HDTV? Just imagine being able to take in every fine detail in Hi-Def of the speaker’s … er… well, eyes and lots of fabric… Perhaps this might be better on radio… It would be much more interesting if the Queen decided to give her annual speech in a veil. I am thinking on giving the Woolamaloo Christmas speech dressed as a cowboy with a bandana over most of my face while waving a six-shooter about to prove that such facial wear is nothing to fear and that the cowboy way of life is not reliant on guns and violence. Yeehar, pardner!
