Petition to scrap the anti-satire broadcast regulations

There is now a petition to scrap the broadcast regulations which prohibit the use of footage of parliament from being used in a satirical TV programme. I think that this regulation is an absurd throwback that must be repealed. I have already expressed my views on this in two previous blog posts – Mocking Parliament and Daily Show response to UK ban of comedy including footage of Parliament

Please sign the petition at the HM Government e-petition website – Scrap The Anti-Satire Broadcast Regulations
