Trouble in Milton Keynes
Local reactions to the resurrected JS:TO tour have begun, with Milton Keynes councillors being the first to stick their heads above the parapet with public displays of aggrieved piety. According to MK Today, liberal democrat councillor Isabella Fraser says,
As a committed Christian I would not be in favour of it. I think we have laws to protect religions from being slandered and they should apply to all religions.
Not very well informed then…
Conservative councillor Andrew Geary agrees:
I always found the whole think reproachable and thoroughly offensive and I am disappointed it is coming to Milton Keynes Theatre. I would love to see it banned, but we live in a secular society and there’s very little I can do about it.
Stewart Lee comments:
Jerry Springer the Opera was developed on public money in public spaces and belongs to the nation, whether the nation wants it or not.
