People overreacting and acting like they don't know he was joking .... He is not a Jew hater or a Hitler lover any more than Joan Rivers was when she made similiar jokes....What a ridiculous witch hunt people are taking part in.
If sticking labels on people is how some folks like to roll then they should at least make sure it's the right label.
Making reference to history does not make some one a Jew hater ... What's more offensive are the young people who don't even know the history or the extreme PC brigade who try and re write it like it didn't happen.
Maybe Biggins mistake will have actually educated a few people.

Would he have been thrown out for making jokes about other horrific wars/genocides such as Pol Pot's Cambodia in the 1960s, Rwandan massacres in the 1990s or the Iraq invasion in 2003?

All of which are full of appalling and upsetting horrors just like the death camps of WW2. I wonder if ALL those type of subjects are off limits in the BB house now, or is it just WW2 that you can't joke about?

I like your comparisons ... And I agree ... Thank God Biggins didn't tell James he looked like Henry the Eighth ..,, heads would have rolled

err NO Jewish children were adopted by the British during the war - the ones that had the money to make it - back then planes couldn't fly into enemy territory land and pick people up...

All races have been oppressed in history at some point.
================================================== ====

"Jews did not enjoy any of the guarantees of Magna Carta[3] of 1215."

Jews were expelled fromEngland in 1290

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edict_of_Expulsion

Edict of Expulsion


"All races have been oppressed in history at some point." is a very dismissive and inaccurate observation on your behalf sungrass. .

whilst other races unfortunately also been persecuted, and although Jews were not the only ones to be executed in Germany they were the majority. the Holocaust was "designed' for the Jews.
when you hear the words "the Final Solution" you do not think :Hitler meant to rid Germany specifically of any one else. you think: He aimed to get rid of the Jews whom he perceived to be a threat.

that experience should teach us in Britain be careful not to fall into the pit of hatred when dealing with Muslims now. need to keep it under check so it does not get out of hand.

"Making reference to history does not make some one a Jew hater"
i agree it does not. but it was not a History debate. and was not a point in a discussion. it was made in a relaxed social situation to a single person.
telling a Jew to watch out or they will be gassed whilst waiting their turn to the shower is rather sick, and sickening. intellectually you could detect the inferences there. it is quite possible Biggins did not mean it, but because his intellect and knowledge is now questionable so is his intent.




Joan Rivers was Jewish. and she was a Naturally funny lady.
