Should that ghastly woman Mary Beard be prevented from presenting the BBC series Civilisation?
How many minutes can you watch this before shuddering uncontrollably with disgust and irritation? A male Facebook friend said: "I lasted 2 minutes - ghastly irritating woman".
It is clear that Mary Beard is not fit even to clean Lord Clark's shoes let alone step into them.
Why do we need a remake of this excellent series anyway?
What we really really need is is an analysis of what went so wrong with the BBC and its selection of TV historians since 1969 that the BBC licence fee payer is being caused alarm, anxiety and distress in 2014 at the thought of Mary Beard presenting this series as if she were a jolly hockey sticks schoolmarm and we her learning disabled charges.
