Fears over political correctness

Political correctness is preventing Birmingham's business community from discussing the diversity agenda, it was claimed today.

Hundreds of firms are being held back because they fear a political correctness "backlash" if they speak or act incorrectly.

And bosses in the city's professional services sector are "sick and tired" of being told what they can or cannot say, says the head of a city organisation charged with helping companies cope with the issue.

Mr Reid cited a "typical" selection of PC issues covered by the media:

* Christmas banned and re-branded Winterval in case it offends people.
* Baa baa rainbow sheep - critics say changing this children's nursery rhyme is one step too far.
* You've got lovely eyes - men too afraid to pay women compliments, says survey.
* People warned not to display England flags during major sporting events.
* Steering clear of birthday cards making fun of people's age in case they get upset.
* Minorities demanding (and getting) their own way because they claim to be offended when no hurt was intended or caused.

Ha Haa! What's this? are the lefties getting nervous? Now that the monster they have created is about to turn around and bite them on the backside. It seems, no matter what past governments have done to bring us all closer together. They always somehow manage to drive that wedge just that little further between us all. I mean, 'anti-race laws', c'mon! And now we have lived with the spectre of PC for ages now and let's face it! It's got us nowhere. Everyone still hates everyone else. Probably just the same as if there were no special laws in place. But then again. A lot of the PC crap that we are forced to adere to, hasn't exactly been written to law. Has it? It's mostly an unwritten law unto it's own. And it has spread like wildfire through the public and capitalist sectors. Rather like all that neo-feminist gumpf did in the eighties.

I have heard of cases in schools. Where the choice to impose something like, 'baa baa rainbow sheep', has been solely the choice of a single school. Not the action of an authority. I reckon that PC is a law to be passed out by any little lefty tyrant. Who deems it necessary to shove their oppressive ideals onto us. And of course, where better to start the PC brainwashing of the masses. Than in our schools.

However, it is nice to see at least one major politician addressing the suituation. Unfortunately for Mr. Reids' statement, it's like everything else that the Labour Party says. It's bit like closing the stable door. After the horse has bolted.
