Must Remember To Include A Title.

This is serious:

TalkSport presenter Jon Gaunt has been suspended by the UTV-owned station after he called a London councillor a "Nazi" during a live debate.

It seems harsh, and I agree with Jon Gaunt on the issue he was discussing, a London council's ban on letting children be adopted by smokers, but if he wanted to insult the Nazis he should have used a less offensive comparison.

Radio presenters are in the news a lot lately. Not always for what they say on air, either:

I think 'Nazi' was justified.

Maybe he should have settled for 'communist', as Nazi comments always end badly.

"Maybe he should have settled for 'communist"

Yeah, but they'd probably take it as a compliment.
