"Comedian" Jim Davidson has always been about as funny as a case of the clap.

Yesterday, however, Davidson showed what a truly odious creature he really is.

He pulled out of a performance in Plymouth because he took exception to wheelchair users in the front row.

A spokesman for the theatre involved said that "Mr Davidson cited the fact that a proportion of his act was aimed at disabled customers and that he would be unable to perform under these circumstances."

I have little time for political correctness but I find Davidson's request that the wheelchair users move utterly breathtaking. What if the "offending" patrons had been black, blind, Chinese or women?

Davidson's next shows in Swansea will go ahead. Would the Swansea Grand Pavilion host a National Front rally? I suspect not, but Davidson's attitude towards disabled people is as sickening as the NF's towards ethnic minorities.

I encourage you to e-mail Jim Davidson's tour promoters at sasha@midasmediagroup.com to express your views on the Master of Mirth.
