Another luvvie condemns cartoonists

Nick Cohen in today's Observer:
Rory Bremner will tear into Tony Blair, but not Mohammed Khatami.
One of the regulars from Bremner, Bird and Fortune - actress Maria McErlane - joined Julian Worricker for his weekly leftie love-in on Five Live this morning. Here’s what she had to say about the latest cartoon to offend Muslims:
"I think cartoonists really need to stick to the kind of Peanuts - y’know Schulz line - and stay away from satire."
Yes, satire should be the exclusive reserve of liberal luvvies like her and Rory Bremner who wouldn't cross a culturally sensitive boundary even if their lives depended on it.
