    Times change eh,well Chubby still working and still popular by all accounts with people not from the 70's,times change? No they don't the controversial evolves (a little) Frankie Boyle anyone and of course momentum talking of David Baddiel referred to as that stinking Jew,which particular decade are they refugees from.
    Since 1945 how often was the legitimacy of a general election result questioned and how many received 52% of the vote?

    Well even racist humour still has a following, even if a declining one. And there have been plenty of racists coming of age since the 70s.

    These people are hardly mainstream anymore though, are they? You'll never see their acts on mainstream TV.
