    Excellent, got to love the entirely one-sided report there and the editorial statements with nothing to back them up.

    Influenced by television, more than nine out of 10 adults now admit to swearing every day. And those who do not are often too fearful to challenge those who do.

    Umm.. says who? The Daily Express. Where is the research proving the link to television? Is it not likely to be that television simply reflects the fact that more people swear?

    Broadcaster Esther Rantzen said last night: “Every body would agree that there is too much swearing on television and something has to change.”

    Really Esther? That somewhat contradicts the previous statement that "90 per cent of the adult population no longer fazed by the use of expletives"

    What a load of shit.

    I think its far too prevalent. Not wanting to sound too toffee-nosed but it really only detracts from a conversation, unless the use is carefully considered and very rare; its impact is higher. Seems worse down south.
