A new Bond movie is about to come out and in Britain there is a debate over the future of the longest running, most successful spy franchise in movie history.
Should Bond be a woman, should Bond be gay?
I don't think so but my position is putting me in some odd company; not only Sir Roger Moore but also Piers Morgan who actually had a momentary bout of sanity writing a column saying James Bond shouldn’t turn into Janet Bond.
Bond is a character, a well-defined character. Making these kinds of changes will turn off long time fans. That has nothing to do with any kind of bigotry, it's simply when you go see Bond, you expect certain things.
The movie franchise is already suffering the weight of the PC mentality making it harder to define who the villain is for fear of offending people.
Morgan ends his piece by saying,“For God’s sake let Bond be Bond and let the PC police be damned.”
I’ll drink to that and I bet you will too.
