Yeah, I didn’t think of it that way at the time either. I’m just saying, rewatching it now, it did seem to be making fun of the whole “Health and safety / regulations GONE MAD” and similar tropes that we mostly associate with the right-wing now. I would agree though that it’s more about management-speak and following overly bureaucratic rules though. And, in fairness, it’s only in the intervening years that fighting political correctness has become the frequent rallying cry of one side of the political aisle.
BTW the other answer to “Name a right-leaning comedy” is probably South Park, though again no-one ever thought of it that way in its heyday. But it has that slant, and I know the writers have now repudiated some of the political views implied through the show (e.g. “man bear big” indirectly espousing the view that climate change was being massively exaggerated just because Al Gore craved attention).
Anyway, sorry for the potential hijack.
