See thisislondon.co.uk/lite W HILE I admire Bruce Forsyths longevity in showbiz, his comment that people need to get a sense of humour about Strictly dancer Anton Du Bekes Paki joke is indicative of his age. Its understandable maybe, but its also very out of touch with the modern world. We have moved on a great deal since the Fifties and most people are offended by the word Du Beke used. End of story. Richard, London BEING of Pakistani origin I am annoyed that in this day and age, a so-called gentleman only a few years older than myself would think it acceptable to joke that someone looked like a Paki. The reason he used the word just adds fuel to the fire, giving the impression that it is an insult to look Asian. Not one of my friends would in jest say, You coming to lunch, Paki? Rosie, south London LAILA ROUASS should be the judge of her dance partner Du Bekes comment, aimed at her after she had a spray tan. The actress clearly took it as a joke. Can w e m o ve on? I hope a l l t h i s wont affect their danc- ing. Anita, London JUST because Bruce Forsyth doesnt find it offensive doesnt mean other people (like myself) feel the same. If he thinks its a harmless joke why doesnt he walk up to a group of Asian lads and say it to them? I doubt too many would laugh. Chris, Finsbury Park SACK him. I like Bruce, but his deluded comments really arent welcome. WJenkins, London CAROL THATCHER was sacked instantly after she made a racist comment. It is inconsistent of the BBC to stand behind Du Beke. Katy W, Kensington Textpoll Q: Are power bill rises justified? OurlastresultWill you vote for Cameron?
