(London Telegraph) John Cleese said he will no longer perform or give talks at university campuses because political correctness has taken over.
The Monty Python star revealed that he has been advised not to perform to students as the fear of offending has expanded so far that any kind of criticism is now seen as "cruel".
Mr Cleese said it is down to people who cannot control their emotions, so seek to control others, and worries that it could lead to a society like that in the iconic dystopian Orwell Novel.

Although he is best known for his work as Basil Fawlty, Mr Cleese also has a strong business pedigree and as the co-founder of Video Arts, a business training programme, has over the years provided talks on the subjects of business and psychology to students, using his technique of making people laugh.
