Mocking Parliament

Quick Version: The Daily Show Global Edition can’t be shown in the UK this week, because it contains footage from parliament in the context of humour and satire. (Long version at New Statesman.)

WHAT????!!!!

We can’t mock parliament? What happened to free speech? You know, that human right that has to apply to everybody or it doesn’t work?

Well screw that. Here’s the stuff that can’t be shown. I am not sure if the rules on this apply to internet video and blogs or not, but if it breaks the law, so be it.

And just in case you haven’t seen it, this is my video that might break the law too.

The world is broken and I can't fix it because I am broken. I can, however, rant about it all and this is where I do that when I can get my thoughts together. Most of the time you'll find my words on Twitter rather than here though. I sometimes write for Where's The Benefit too.

One thought on “Mocking Parliament”

  1. I found the video rather funny! More seriously though this does raise the question about how fit for purpose Parliamentary rules actually are in this digital age. 

    We don’t live in the “Command & Control” medium anymore, it’s taking our industries, businesses and Governments (world wide) a rather long time to come to terms with this new communication medium.
