Hi Jon! Have a very happy birthday.

thanks. I'm not really brave, there is very little opportunity for the law to be inforced. It all depends on how someone reacts to what it is you are saying..it's not actually about what you say but technically if someone takes offence to Father Ted, which was commissioned and funded by a nationalised tv station, funded through public money then the government itself is guilty of blasphemy. It's a very silly law.
