Joken woman?

Danny Cohen, head of the BBC’s television output, has promised viewers that the corporation will not make any more all-male comedy panel shows.

This apparently is in order to better represent audiences on-screen and to moderate the competitive atmosphere of shows such as Mock the Week.

I thought the Sex Discrimination Act would have made such a policy unlawful. In any case, I suggest that an even better way to represent audiences on-screen would be to directly recruit panel members at random from the general public.
