The series was the subject of much criticism by morality campaigner Mary Whitehouse, not because of Garnett's racial prejudice but because of his frequent use of the exclamation "bloody".

You can save yourself a lot of time, trying to figure out what's going on with the world, from Trump to Boris, just by watching a few episodes.
Johnny Spreight knew the value the oppressed put upon a figurehead that was the head of the reason why he was so poor, so oppressed, just as a Trump voter thinks their flag is of any value and it is more important to them than food in their child's stomach.
Written by and starring two wonderful Marxists, their message was sadly missed but is still a message for our time.
