Life of Brian Resurrected?

Sue Jones-Davies, the mayor of a Welsh town called Aberystwyth, thinks it’s ridiculous that the town has a ban on the movie Life of Brian. And since she was in the movie, and in a nude scene no less, she should know. Now she’s trying to get the ban lifted after nearly 30 years. Jones-Davies played the role of Judith Iscariot in the infamous Monty Python film, which brilliantly lampoons the gospel stories. The movie was banned in lots of Welsh cities for being blasphemous.
