Fireman Sam has been axed from the kids programme because he is “to male “ ,he is reported to have put women off joining the fire service .poor old Sam is facing the Axe (not a fireman’s ,sorry firefighters obviously ) this is from Lincolnshire fire brigade ,don’t you think the people of Lincoln have had enough with the Cowley bros Leaving .so after 40 years Sam has been dobbed in for 3 fire extinguishers characters called ,Freddy, Filbert and Penelope ,now does that mean Dickens Book David Copperfield becomes Davinia Copperfield Oliver Twist becomes Olivia twist ,Nicolas Nicolby becomes Nicola Nicolby the world has really gone ,poor old Sam must have inspired many a young man to be a firefighter ,men are doomed

This is stupid! There are real gender issues out there like unequal pay and workplace opportunities however stupid decisions like this and man sized tissues just deflect attention away from these .

He's been dropped as a mascot for Lincs fire service, not axed from the kids' programme.

Wouldn't make sense would it. let'd have a show called Fireman Sam that does'nt have the main character in it, it would be like Doctor Who without the Doctor and who would want to watch a programme about aliens called Who and some people in a tardis with no understanding of how to fly it or stop aliens?



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

the unequal pay has been debunked from many angles

women arent put off joining the fire service by a cartoon, they are put off by the nature of the job.

men and women value different things, have different interests and that is why jobs like the fire service are male dominated
