The British way: Save 6Music demonstrators outside Broadcasting House

One response to “SixMdemo,down-FBk

  1. About these Save 6Music demonstrators being “British” … Irish more like – this photo references the protest episode in Father Ted with the famous slogan: “Down with this sort of thing – Careful Now!” The phrase has been adopted by protesters across the UK and this message is frequently seen on placards – Graham Linehan, Father Ted writer, commented recently on Twitter that he gets sent a photo similar to this one about once a week on average.

    * Shapersofthe80s replies: Well observed, Alison. Graham Linehan and Father Ted have seared the collective unconscious in many ways.
