THIS is the stupid world we live in now.

BLOODY RIDICULOUS

A television channel specialising in vintage programmes has been plunged into a row with the regulator over racist language in a 1970s drama.
Talking Pictures TV, watched by two million viewers a week, has been admonished by Ofcom for declining to censor the outdated term – although it reportedly received just one complaint.
The family-run digital channel, which specialises in the likes of Norman Wisdom comedies and Peter Sellers classics, was probed after screening Second World War drama A Family at War, originally broadcast from 1970-72 on ITV.

One wonders what would happen if Alf Garnet or Love thy neighbour were put back on TV. We older people now have to behave with the stupid moral standards of todays snowflake millenials.
