Cornish joke on Have I Got News For You sparks MP anger

An MP has complained to the BBC and the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) regarding a joke about the Cornish on Have I Got News For You.

The joke was made on the latest edition of the TV satire show by panellist Andy Hamilton in response to a question.

Dan Rogerson, Liberal Democrat MP for North Cornwall, said the comments showed the "Cornish are discriminated against as a group".
