Why I’m supporting Katie Price

Frankie Boyle likes to shock. That’s his thing. Sometimes he’s funny, sometimes he’s not. In small doses, on a panel show, he’s the irreverent one, but he’s kept in check by the other comics.

On his own TV show his act has reached a new low in his pursuit of ‘humour’.

Now he’s been lambasted, and quite rightly in my opinion, for making what can only be described as sick and distasteful jokes about Katie Price’s son Harvey.

For some bizarre reason I can’t quite fathom Channel 4 is refusing to apologise for broadcasting the material, which surely shouldn’t have been broadcast in the first place.

Because whatever you think about Katie Price, making sick jokes about children is never funny, and making sick jokes about the disabled is never funny.
