BBC 5 Live’s ex-presenter Danny Baker is planning a return to broadcasting with a new show called “Baker’s the Gaffer”.
Baker was sacked from the nanny broadcaster after posting a Tweet about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby. That’s Harry and Meghan as we love to call them.
The BBC, which is happy to turn a blind eye to paedos, keep women as underdog employees and steal over 75’s pensions, apparently lacks the wit and sensibility to see the humour in a royalist jibe. It branded the Tweet racist although Baker was never arrested or charged.
The Tweet may have been racist, who knows? It depends on:
- Your political affiliation
- How much of a Royalist you are
- If you have a sense of humour
- if you see a chimpanzee in clothes as a symbol of racism, a circus or animal cruelty
- Whether or not you like Danny Baker
Baker’s new show, “Baker’s the Gaffer”, will feature all the numerous gaffs he’s made during his career. It will also invite stars, celebrities and politicians onto the show to run through their gaffs.
Retired and recently-fired politicians in particular are already queuing up to be guests.
Mr Baker is hoping for a “Royal warrant of appointment” for his show.
He is in negotiation with broadcasters to determine who will broadcast the show. It probably won’t be the BBC.

Okay, c’mon guys, was the Tweet racist or not?
Was Baker better as Dr Who or as a radio presenter?
