Actually Smiffy, I have always remained consistent on the subject. After Michael Jacksons demise I was banned overnight on Pasoti for a comment I made.
A great trait of the British is being able to make humour out of tragedy, to find comfort in laughing in the face of adversity,despair and duress.
There's a difference between offending and being offensive. Offending is treading on the edges of peoples' moral compasses, Diana, AIDS, Ethiopian famine etc. - unavoidable tragedies that we as individuals all feel no end of pain and sympathy for. But at the end of the day, can find humour and light in a good light hearted joke, which doesn't in any way diminish the pain and sympathy we feel for the victims.
Being offensive is purposely driving hatred and prejudicial views under the banner of comedy. As people, we have a good sense of when a joke is potentially offending and when it is offensive. Racist jokes are offensive, purposely hateful and purposefully mocking and offensive. Jokes about Munich from Liverpool fans, or Hillsborough from Man Utd fans. Once you know about peoples' views, perspectives and prejudices, you get an instinct for whether a joke is offending or intentionally offensive.
And to summarise, you are so wide of the mark with this one Tony you really need to reconsider your platform. No-one finds the literal thought of a paedophile abusing a victim funny. No-one is laughing at the victims, using jokes to channel their hatred and prejudices. The jokes are coming from the spontonaiety of the situation, like you say with Michael Jackson, catholic priests and so on.
To draw a tenuous link between Argyle, Pasoti, AtD or whatever, to the furthering of humiliating the victims of paedophile abuse is totally uncalled for, when what has been written is no more than what has been sent in texts and told between workmates all across the country.
My last point is this - when people elected you a fans representative, I'm sure the position meant representing the fans and not yourself and your own views? Who are you 'representing' here exxactly, to be pestering politicians under your elected title? And what part of the role means telling fans what they should and shouldn't find funny, and what they should and shouldn't find offensive?
