Universe the Musical was on BBC Boxing Day starring Brian Cox.


Warwick Davies (R2D2 actor) sang a poignant song about the fatwah against Pluto. Since Warwick is small, he was sad about the fatwah that small planets aint people any more.

Political Correctness insists that anyone who disagrees with PC is automatically a racist. I disagree with PC. I assert that racism is about hating Blacks and NOT about loving the Planet Pluto.

I have two pro-Pluto T shirts, and I subscribed to some protest songs on behalf of Pluto immediately after the fatwah in 2006. But listening to Warwick Davies' poignant elegy?

Is it very sad? Will it make me cry?

We have all had the idea independently that it was unacceptable to say little planets aren't planets. The implication is that little people aren't people.

I thought it was as lefty and anti-racist as you could get to stand up for Pluto, the first thing on the agenda of 'Hope Not Hate.' Now you tell me that Trump and the alt right have hi-jacked the 'Save Pluto' movement. Please explain.

WTF Trump is God Emperor of Political Correct. Trump has never hijacked PC, PC support him and his sort all the time.
