I Don't Say This Very Often...

...but hats off to The Sun for giving controversial radio presenter Jon Gaunt a high-profile role.

Gaunt (he's the one on the left, by the way) was sacked by Talk Sport last November for labelling one of those obnoxious anti-smoking tyrants a "Nazi". He offered an apology pretty much on-the-spot, but the little Hitler he had a pop at wouldn't let it go, and Gaunt was dismissed.

TalkSport were roundly criticised at the time by those of us who care about free speech because we saw them as being utterly gutless, bowing as they were to the diktats of political correctness.

So good to see that the Sun has done something vaguely courageous and given him a job fronting their new online audio service.
Gaunt's first job is a tough assignment; to get David Cameron to say something exciting. I wish him the very best of luck.

Hat-tip: Iain Dale.

You're kidding right ? That Winkelman-loving, MK Dons supporting AFC Wimbledon sneerer ?
