This Is Not Not the Nine O'Clock News

"And in news just in British comedians are speaking out about a law to outlaw jokes. It finds that people laughing could cause offence in communities that prefer to castigate themselves for enjoyment and blame all the ills of the world on that lot in the east/that lot in the west/ George Bush/sex [delete as appropriate]. This was not Not the Nine O'Clock News"

Rowan Atkinson is spot on though: "But unfortunately it is a wholly inappropriate response far more likely to promote tension between communities than tolerance."
