The chilling effect of Hutton

The BBC tried to pull the first episode of Stephen Fry's radio satire "Absolute Power" for fear that it "would upset No 10".

If this is how far they'll now bend over for a comedy, you really have to wonder what effect Hutton is having on the news...

Update 04/02/04: They didn't can it, but they did sanitise it. We can't have radio comedies being disrespectful of the PM, can we?
