Who said I blame it ALL on 1960’s liberalism.
I’ve already said I think the liberal ideals of the 60’s were laudable, it enables me to live my life as a gay man openly so I‘m hardly opposed to it, ambivalent sometimes though. For the same reason I certainly have little truck with the hardcore values of the Thatcherites with their clause 28 and I’m all right Jack callous disregard for those less fortunate.
I do though see that both have their advantages and disadvantages but when both are applied too rigorously without a nod to common sense and balancing social needs against ideologies the link to the prevailing problems we face today, at least to me, are obvious.

My point is that politicians should not have to intervene in everything that happens on TV.
If there is a problem with racism on a TV show, let the police investigate it, not the politicians.
