Satire is (Still) Dead

Chris Grayling and Labour MP Rupa Huq must be fun at parties:

“I think it’s very important that we make sure coverage of this House is used in an appropriate way. I’m not in favour of it being made available for use in satire programmes.”

So the barmy ban on British broadcasters using Commons footage for satire purposes is not to be overturned. Down in New Zealand they ditched their own anti-satire law, concluding that it made MPs “seem out of touch and weary of criticism”. You can see why Grayling is not on Twitter.
