CAMPAIGNERS EXPRESS CONCERNS OVER POGONOPHOBIA IN THE ARCHERS
The Borsetshire branch of the Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, led by its long time President Joe Grundy, has expressed concerns about pogonophobia in the BBC’s reporting of events from Ambridge.
Last Thursday the BBC reported A-Level results in Ambridge including those of Josh Archer who got two Bs and a C.
There was a discussion between Josh and his father David, current leader of the Archers’ Dynasty, about whether he would take up his place at Felpersham University. Josh told David he had decided to defer his place for a year.
During the exchange the BBC reported the following dialogue:
David Archer ‘grow a beard and go travelling with a back pack..’
Josh Archer ‘me, grow a beard? I wish
It is understood that the local BLF branch is considering a protest if further instances of pogonophobic reporting take place.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, of course local branches of the BLF are autonomous but we fully support Joe Grundy in his concerns here.
