Comedian Stewart Lee tells Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon why he's prepared to defend political correctness as part of his comedy act.

Lee cites the example of 'Winterval', an initiative by Birmingham City Council to combine religious celebrations which some believed was an attempt to ban Christmas.

The star of 90's cult comedy show 'Fist of Fun' claims society is in 'a better place' for following the values of political correctness.
