Why all the fuss? letters.

WHAT on earth is all the fuss about on Strictly Come Dancing? Anton du Beke has been pilloried for suggesting that his partner was so tanned she looked like a P**i. It was meant in jest, for goodness' sake.

I have heard Pakistanis in my area use exactly the same word in banter.

I've heard Asian comedians use the word in their routine.

But as soon as a white man utters it, then all hell breaks loose.

Talk about double standards and political correctness!

While I'm on about it, I don't much like being called a Brit but no-one seems to bother about that.
