LFRS fiddles whilst Lincolnshire burns...

Sam is also short for Samantha. If a Welsh, minority, possibly bi gendered fireperson isn't inclusive enough then I don't know what is.

edit: wrote fireman, will thrash myself for 5 mins

Said he may discourage women or ethnic minorities from joining the fire service

I'd ask do you really want to employ people who would be put off by a cartoon from doing a job?

Firman Sam will be replaced as a mascot by the extinguishers Filbert and Freddy

Filbert - German origin meaning Very Brilliant

Freddy - German origin meaning Peace Ruler

Hideously exclusive as are their white hands.

It's the Daily Mail again.

Not my rag of choice @MrPin! It's pretty much all over MSM but I used the DM link as it seems to be the only website that still allows comments, and some of them can be an interesting read.

Superb response from James Martin. A new dosbods hero I think. xD

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7456413/TV-chef-James-Martin-hits-Fireman-Sam-pc-b-s.html

TV chef James Martin launched a rant against fire crews dropping cartoon character Fireman Sam as their mascot today, branding the move 'pc b******s'.

The Saturday Kitchen star, 47, was incensed when he discovered Lincolnshire and South Wales Fire Services had done away with the children's favourite because he is deemed 'not inclusive enough'.

The Yorkshireman raged: 'Right that's it, Fireman Sam is the last straw I'm done with this pc b******s and 100 identities being taught. In a last stand to this outrageous madness I now wish to be known as an Otter.

'I like other Otters and when you get bored of this c**p in the world join me under water with other Otters, both male and female, and call enough and an end to this madness.'
