He is giving the wrong signals .........?

'Mr Tumble, the sign-language presenter on CBeebies, has been accused of signing "I'm fucking you" instead of "I'm happy to see you" when he greets children on the channel. Startled viewers have complained to the BBC, which has denied the allegation.

'Apparently in the Makaton sign language, the signs for fucking and happy are quite similar.'

Which makes sense to me........

I only just heard of Makaton - its seems like a nice idea. In the 70s Tony Hart used to do sign language on kids TV - he retired to work as a Park keeper and was the first man to swim around England in 1988. I met him at a Hoover sales conference in Orpington in 1992, he was a sad and shattered man...but we became good friends.

I`m almost sure that this is quite funy but I`m so confused I `m just going to smile as if I understand until I catch up,...

Funnily enough Tony hart fucking hated/hates children , I have a read a few articles detailing events where children went up to him for a n autograph and he told them to fuck off.
George Best did that to me when I was about 6 years old , odd thing was the cunt was in business with my father and god father.
Im glad he's dead the miserable cunt.
True story

I'm sure the BBC allowed it deliberately.

Do you know the type of books they're giving kids in primary schools these days ?

What about Bratz dolls and kinky children's undies - the country is run by perverts.

Perhaps the signist has tourettes.

BBC Producer "That's not what we asked you to do !!!"

Signist "Well you should have been a bit more fucking specific, you twat !"

Glad to be of service.

You know, of course, that Iain Dale regards you as mad as a sack of spoons and said as much on 18DS. Perhaps that's why I feel so at home here.

You've a marvelously wicked turn of phrase at times. As a result of which I've become convinced that your blog should be read only in the privacy of one's chamber. There's only so much "Oy, listen to this. It's feckin' hilarious" that one's partner is willing up with which to put.

It's quite destructive of domestic relationships, your blog, but all the more worth visiting regardless.

Its not helping mine Lud and may need rationalisation at some point . Yes I noticed that Dale thinks very Lowly of me . I have teased him about A list selling out perhaps a little overly vigorously.

Oh well

Is there nothing else to do over there but complain?

I wonder if, when wifey rang the BBC, if husband couldnt help but mutter, 'if only some of us were getting fucked'

I'm sure someone got a chuckle from it
