The BBC today apologised to amateur football team Yokel Hamlet AFC after a BBC reporter described them as, “crap”, and, “not having a hope in hell”, in their FA cup draw with Premiership team Chelsea. A BBC spokesperson said that the broadcaster’s guidelines clearly state that any derogatory comments must be preceded by the phrase “with all due respect”; confirming that had the reporter said, “With all due respect to Yokel AFC, they are crap and don’t have a hope in hell”, no offence would have been given.
