More on the Court Jester from David Mitchell

Grauniad piece by David Mitchell, on my recurring topic of offence in free speech generally and comedy specifically – (ie  The Court Jester. See also Frankie Boyle generally.)

The David Mitchell example is in defense of the real case that led to Mike Ward being fined for offense!

We need to separate case of the general public (and authorities) from those of our court jesters.

Hat tip to Sarah Brown.
