Taken, not given

ITV have pulled the following light-hearted song by comedian Tim Minchin from Jonathan Ross's Christmas show on the grounds that it ‘didn’t quite work editorially’.

For which, read that they are a bunch of spineless cowards, terrified that they might cause the slightest offence to some clueless god-botherer somewhere.

Remember, offence is taken, not given. Personally, I take great offence at censorship of popular entertainment shows on the grounds that certain other people might find the content offensive.

Fairly harmless, isn't it?

What else are ITV protecting us from?

  1. If we're supposed to believe if from the Bible, what's wrong with a comedian saying it? Great song!!

  2. If Richard Stilgoe had recorded that they would have shown it again on Pick of the Year
