And if so, then is there any possibility of their being grown up discussion among intelligent people with a point of view and a robust style of expressing it? Free speech involves risking the giving of offence: as witness David Tennant on this evening's HIGNFY. In the Odd One Out round he wrapped up the answer with the following: "Some Tibetan Buddhist priests believe that in the moment of his death, the re-incarnated Dalai Lama enters the body of a small child, whereas some Catholic priests think “why wait?". As a joke that is tasteless, offensive, insulting to and belittling of people of faith. It is also extremely funny. And, crucially, I think it important that we continue to live in a country where making such jokes is possible. More than that we should make the most of the opportunity. In the totally privatised media of the future, no-one will dare to crack a joke like this - the advertising agencies and sponsors will simply not allow it.
