Big Brother is Listening...to your jokes

According to THIS article in the Daily Mail, mother-in-law jokes, once the bedrock of British comedy, have been banned by the London Borough of Barnet because they are ‘offensively sexist’ and disrespectful to ‘family elders’.

Oh Gosh. Now the government wants to legislate politeness, or rather their eschewed notion of it. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg of the totalitarian drift of modern Britain.
