Should we cut the smut ... or just give in to the gig­gles?

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - Debate -

FOR­MER First Min­is­ter Alex Sal­mond was crit­i­cised last week fol­low­ing a filthy gag he made at his Fringe chat show.

The joke ref­er­enced sev­eral fe­male politi­cians, in­clud­ing Ni­cola Stur­geon, who said the gag be­longed “in the Benny Hill era”.

Sal­mond, how­ever, laughed off the com­ments.

But should dirty jokes like th­ese – and smut in so­ci­ety – be a thing of the past?
