Politically Correct...you could not make it up...
Now I've started the 30 day challenge, it occurred to me that I need subjects to write about.... instant quandary, I mean 30 hubs is a lot of subjects, however fortunately the world news provides stacks of subject matter, and today's winner is.....(rattle drum beat)
Political correctness in a mad world!
So, for our first wacky contestant, try this...
"A job centre has been slammed for refusing to display an advert for a 'reliable workers' - because it discriminated against unreliable applicants.
A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers."
Like the title says, you couldn't make it up, and if I had tried to suggest that as a factual story years ago any editor would have called it nonsense.
But it is fact in today's wacky world of loony lefty liberals.
This by the way from a Job Centre, where they are supposed to find jobs for the 2.8 million Brits that are unemployed, surely when that many bodies are available we should be able to stipulate who we want and how we want them to be?
I guess we can no longer advertise for honest people either, in case crooks start suing us for discrimination, or kind and considerate nannies for our children....must not risk offending the heartless bullies who might apply for a position as a child minder. It's small wonder that the UK is in the mess that it is in, they have been subjected to mind control for 12 years now and have become as fuddled as a rat in a vat of wine.
Candidate number two....
For the wacky news title, is about a nice couple of girls who became men and are now having a baby together..... using a homosexual friends sperm donation!
"A transgender couple have revealed they are expecting their first baby in a month’s time.
Scott Moore – thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public – is due to give birth to a boy in February, with husband Thomas by his side.
The couple were both born girls and have undergone surgery to transform their sex."
Now apart from the fact that I'm not sure what they are, lesbians, homosexuals of just plain confused, it just looks so unwholesome....
The one thing they seem to have successfully removed from their original female birth configuration is any aspect of feminine attractiveness.
Am I going crazy, or has the world gone mad?
Candidate number three....
Is the winner in my opinion, for sheer lunacy curtailed.
The peers of the House of Lords have just voted against a legal bill, a so called 'equality' bill, that would have made it illegal for the Church in the UK to refuse employment to homosexuals and transsexuals.
Now I have spend a good part of today writing (unpaid) for the Independent newspaper where the loony left have been protesting about this outbreak of sanity.
They seem to be totally infuriated that the Church should have this right, indeed they are incensed that anybody should have the right to not like anybody else, though they clearly show that they dislike people who believe in Christ.
It has obvious ramifications if this lunacy is allowed to remain on the statute books, for then, in the name of equality, your local Community Relations Office in Brixton, a resoundingly black neighbourhood, could be sued by the first white racist BNP (British Nationalist Party) member to be brave enough to apply for the job of Community Relations Officer.
And they would win substantial damages....if they lived long enough.
When I grew up it was in a time when all our world maps in the classrooms were coloured mostly red, to show us proud English children the extent of 'our' empire.
Now I will admit that it was my generation that assisted Satan in pulling down the bastions of establishment and overturning social order in the 1960's, and relishing the discomfiture that it caused the rich old men in their private clubs.
Common sense ruled the day, and judges ruled upon matters in accordance with the fabled 'man on the top of a Clapham omnibus' which had been a standard of judgement for years.
If the 'normal' man would consider it permissible, and it did not challenge the social order, it was acceptable.
So we had the irony of a system where the schoolboy in his 'public school' at Eton or Rugby, could be buggered by the older boys, in almost a tradition, but homosexuality was still illegal, and therefore practised behind closed (and locked) doors. The judge that sentence the arrested homosexual, may very well have buggered him in Prep school!
Hypocrisy in extremis I agree, but now the social engineering has swung too far in the opposite direction, and what would have been considered totally unacceptable then is now almost a required fact in the current social scene.
Like I said, you could not make up today's news!
