In his defence he said "Nobody thinks it's a good thing to laugh at the disabled. But it is a genuine problem that we're not allowed to laugh with the disabled."
In response former Paralympic athlete Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson said "Would you mind sayin disabled people please? We're not 'the disabled'. It's 'the table'....etc etc. thank you"
So who is right? Is Frankie right when he says that there is a real problem if we feel the need to exclude any particular group as a subject of humour? Is Tanni right to scold him for talking about "the disabled"? (in which case do I have to stop referring to my fellow countymen as "the Scots"?)
I haven't seen the other supposedly offensive jokes but I do have to say I found the one about Seb Coe quoted above quite funny...
