Following a production of a stage play, 'Nelson's Enchantress', there were protests in Parliament about showing contempt for a national hero: see the extract from Hansard below:

and a picture of the actors:

It might be amusing to read the script that caused such uproar.

[For overseas readers: 'Hansard' is the edited, daily, verbatim reports of proceedings in Parliament.]
