BBC forced to apologise for comedian Frankie Boyle's 'disgusting, anti-Semitic' joke

He merely represents what the rest at the BBC think.

The BBC Trust's editorial standards committee (ESC) has issued an apology over a joke made by Frankie Boyle which compared Palestine with a cake being "punched to pieces by a very angry Jew".

The committee, which acts as a final arbiter of appeals if complainants are unhappy with the response from BBC management, upheld a previous finding that the comment was inappropriate and offensive.

But it said that no further action is needed in the case.

Really? No further action, eh? How about some history lessons?
