There are times that I have found the Chaser boys very funny, but like all of those who do satire their shtick is just not always funny I am rather amused though by the developing outrage from the usual suspects that Clarence house should dare to say that they will not allow any footage of the wedding to be used by comedians or satirists.
Personally I think that its is in extremely poor taste to take the piss out of anyone’s wedding be they the most lowly street people to the likes William and Kate everyone deserves to be treated with respect on the day that they make one of our most solemn commitments. If the Chaser boys want to take the piss then they are free to stage a re-enactment of the event but to expect the use of the official footage just so that they can mock the event is seriously misconceived. I would love to know if the chaser boys would be happy to have their own wedding video subjected to the sort of mocking commentary that they were planning for the Royal wedding? No? well if its good enough for ordinary people not to have their wedding mocked then it should be good enough not to mock a Royal wedding.
