    Deep Fry In Batter Row?


    Not sure what to make of the appointment of Stephen Fry as the new President of the MCC, which is the body that runs cricket globally.

    He has the merit of being an entertaining comedian, and can talk sense, which we’ve noticed before….

    But he can talk rot too, as when he underwent a bout of Europhilia..

    Brexiting Home, With A Song In My Heart?

    …and now he’s been gabbling on when to use the word ‘batter,’ a word which is dear to my heart, because, without batter….

    ….fish n chips, my all-time fave meal in the world, would be dull fare indeed.

    Yet the report claims Fry’s a ‘polymath,’ hence my headline, a deep thinker….really?

    It’s all about how the polymath deems it ‘rude’ to call female cricketers ‘batsmen.’ Maybe.

    Or is it just pandering to what the story refers to as ‘a time when cricket’s ruling bodies are becoming increasingly aware of the demand to be more inclusive.

    Demand?’

    Diktat, more like!

    Normal folk, normal fans, have never ‘demanded’ all the ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ hogwash.

    That comes from the sad little Cricket Whiner and effete elitists…

    But does Fry truly think they should be called ‘batters?’

     Batgirls

    Why not call them ‘batgirls?’
