Is it really the role of the state to regulate taste?
Thank heavens, no. Satire (q.v.) has been thriving in Blighty for 4 centuries. Most people understand when something is satire within a nanosecond. However, set up an agency to monitor "satire" then give its (originally completely normal) senior officer a title and an objective his discretion goes out the window and he becomes completely po-faced. Tiresome. And stupid.
