It is with regret that I pass on the sad news that the Royal Mail has rejected a Benny Hill stamp.
Newly released minutes from a Royal Mail committee meeting show that political correctness won the day when it came to selecting images to represent ITV comedy. "Benny Hill has been included in previous presentations but concerns were raised by our public relations team as it was in direct opposition to company's policies on harassment in the workplace," the minutes stated.
Mark Steyn is also concerned:
Hmm. Hope this won't derail the USPS Clinton commemorative.
