Mary Fucking Whitehouse is back from the dead

And is going by the name of Margaret:
Channel 4 and the sick show they call comedy: Comedians guzzle wine and egg each other on to trade obscene jokes about the Queen, Philip and Susan Boyle
Margaret Morrissey, founder of campaign group Parents Outloud, said: ‘It is amazing this programme was ever broadcast. This was not live television, someone made the decision to allow this to go out at 9pm during the holidays when young children will still be up and watching television.
Fuck off Margaret Morrissey. If you can't control what your young children are watching on telly then you're a shite parent. That's your responsibility and nobody else's. Trust the Daily Mail to bring out the professionally offended.

It gets better though as there is an article on her Parents Outloud website with more comment from her:
It was actually at 9pm and whilst I agree with you totally in an ideal world yes I personally would switch off life is not so simple. Given the red light these things become the norm after 25 years of working with parents and PTA’s experience shows there are those parents who do allow children freedom of the media and they then discus with your children , they now have the ability to record etc and share so best not to broadcast it surely.
Some crude humour is broadcast after a well known watershed. That offends her puritan sensibilities or might be seen by her children (won't somebody think of the children?) because she can't be arsed to keep an eye on them. Therefore the solution is to ban it. Margaret Morrissey offends my sensibilities, so she can go and fuck herself.
