When did the Tories stop loving left-wing comedy?
In the 1980s, when I was writing for Spitting Image, they loved it. Couldn't get enough of it. What did they care? They had the power.
The angrier we got the more they enjoyed it.
There were no right-wing comics then. Tories wore their lack of sense of humour as a badge of honour.
Sure there were sexists and racists, but back then they were cancelled by market forces. Advertisers preferred non-sexist non-racist comedy. And the BBC followed suit.
