Making a meal of things, maybe!

Today we heard about the cafe owner who’s advertisement on Google has been removed after it was deemed too offensive.

Jo Evans-Pring, 63, owner of Fanny’s Rest Stop Cafe wanted to promote her faggots, a traditional dish consisting of minced off-cuts and offal, which is very popular in the English Midlands and South and mid Wales, so she started advertising on Google.

Within a few weeks of launching her initial campaign, faggot sales rose significantly so realising she was onto something Jo decided to put a picture of the food on her own website. But then she got an email from Google saying the faggots with peas and onion gravy had been removed for containing ‘inappropriate and offensive content’.

It seems that Google administrators consider that the word “faggot” is an abusive term for gay men.

Jo says that since she started her advertising campaign she’s been attracting diners from further afield and her shop “FANNY’S REST STOP CAFE” has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2019 prize as well as consistently high scores on TripAdvisor.

But as Google remain unrepentant over their decision, it seems the adverts must stop in spite of all the truly nasty stuff which appears on the internet. 

In the second hour I was joined by Margaret Mills who’s subject this week was Abigail Mashon, a confidant of Queen Anne who lived for a time in our county at High Lever.

If you missed it, you can listen again here to what Margaret told me about her life and times: – 

I’m not around next week so I’ll be seeing you next on 30th September,
