In October 1981, Kenny Everett returned to BBC Radio, this time on Radio 2, on Saturday from 11am–1pm. This lasted until 1983, when he was once again dismissed after making a rude joke about Margaret Thatcher: “When England was a kingdom, we had a king. When we were an empire, we had an emperor. Now we’re a country … and we have Margaret Thatcher”. This remark reportedly led to the non-renewal of his contract with BBC Radio 2.
