Ramsay cleared to carry on swearing

A Senate inquiry into bad language used on Australian TV by British chef Gordon Ramsay has rejected calls for a ban on certain swear words.

The series 'Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares' produced by the celebrity chef in the United States and Britain is a hit in Australia.

The inquiry was initiated by an opposition senator who argued that there is no excuse for gratuitous bad language being broadcast repeatedly.

But today in Canberra, a Senate committee reported that they would not recommend broadcast restrictions on Ramsay’s choice of swear words because there was insufficient community support for a ban.
