In this era of woke, could Monty Python happen now?

Monty Python was bold, adventurous, ground-breaking television. We love it because it was cheeky and funny and boyish - and there's nothing wrong with that. It's time to harness their pioneering spirit. Let's loosen up our culture. Let's be free and creative and funny again.

As sharp as his comrades but possessing of an indefatigable decency, Jones was always the heart of Monty Python, writes Ed Power.
