POLITICAL CORRECTNESS BEING ONE REASON ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Sir David Jason: Political correctness is killing the British sense of humour (Richard Eden, 13 May 2012, Telegraph)

As the star of Only Fools and Horses and Open All Hours, Sir David Jason is responsible for some of the most amusing moments on television. The comic actor says many of them would, however, never make it to the screen these days because of a growing "political correctness" that is killing comedy.

"We seem to have lost our British sense of humour," he tells Mandrake. "It's a great shame. We have to be so careful nowadays, we've lost a lot of humour by people being frightened of getting to near touchy subjects. It's a great loss to comedy."
