Yeah, Danny is aged about 61, I think.
His career wouldn't have much further mileage to go, so in a way it's not actually that much damaging to him. His best days were nearly 20 years ago.
Was he an idiot? Was he being racist subconsciously? Did he lie afterward and act like a prat? Yes.
Intentional racism? Probably not.
I doubt, this will meet the prosecution threshold of the CPS. However, the Met need to be seen investigating a complaint of racism from a 'celebrity' presenter.
It's 2019. We can stop the "unintentional" bs about 20-30 years ago. Everybody knows it's intentional and extremely malicious.
