Talk Honestly is discussing:

John Cleese has warned that hate speech laws, such as those proposed by the SNP administration in Scotland, are "disastrous" for creativity.

This is all a direct attempt to destroy society. If you cannot point out and make fun of the dumb things we do, then we are taking ourselves too seriously.

[Cleese added that he had himself recently been in trouble for referring to someone as “jolly”, being told: “No, no, you can’t say ‘jolly’ now because that means fat.”

“So I looked it up in the dictionary, of course it doesn’t mean fat at all — but to a small number of people it means fat, and therefore they’re trying to control the way I speak because they have a little private rule themselves that it has a completely different meaning from the one I’ve grown up with,” he said.]
