Miss Scotland and Jason Akermanis

Proving that beauty really isn’t skin deep, Miss Scotland Nicola McLean showed the kind of casual, unthinking racism that I recognise from the old country. In discussions about Irish singer Samantha Mumba, McLean said she thought Mumba looked ‘like a monkey’, echoing Aker’s on-air verbal gaffe where he described his Aboriginal radio station bosses in the same way. Miss Scotland (like Ron Atkinson in “Public Relations Disasters’ ) retrospectively claims to have been misunderstood, though her comments clearly show there’s no appetite for intolerant views or verbal gaffes in the global village.
