Oh no you don't! PC officials order Punch to calm down and swap his whacking stick for a fluffy mop

That's the way to do it.

Watching him as a kid didn't turn me towards domestic violence. Should he be curtailed?

I suppose the kids will just have to go home and plat GTA3 instead.
What has happened to " good old fashion common sense"?

I'm surprised he was not ordered to have a more diverse show,with the under represented minorities included.
Along with a full risk assessment to everybody within a 50 mile radius of his show.
I would remove his entertainment licence at the very least until he can sort these things out.

On a more serious note
Paul Mahy, commercial manager at the Spinnaker Tower, said: "We think some people could be offended by the traditional Punch and Judy story, especially at our family friendly attraction.

I doubt if he even had one complaint.

I'm off now to club a crocodile.
Watching Punch & Judy did not do me any harm!

What next, expurgated nursery rhymes?
Tell tale tit, There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, Rock a bye baby are all prime contenders and all far too violent!

I seem to remember '3 blind mice' being the centre of a debate about nursery rhymes some years ago.

Here is a link to a very interesting article that I found last year, after discussing nursery rhymes with someone (I can't for the life of me remember who)

I suspect had it been Judy battering Punch there would have been nothing said.
