"Alf Garnett was comic genius..."

The character of Alf Garnett was reputedly based on Johnny Speight's own father. Warren Mitchell proved what a talented actor he was, in portraying Alf as the bigot we all love to hate, when the actor and character were complete opposites.

"To a lesser extent, the same case can be made to defend the much misunderstood series Curry and Chips.."

Spike Milligan could get away with material which the BBC would allow nobody else to do. Look at his "Pakistani Dalek", for instance.

"Even at a bigger stretch Love Thy Neighbour..."

In my opinion, Love Thy Neighbour was just not funny, even in the 1970's.
