This was emailed to me by one of my daughters. Thanks Tracie, I know it's a send up, but I couldn't have put it better myself. I have actually been saying to OG that the PC crap is getting to feel like Nazi Germany/communist Russia must have felt. Paranoia fuelled by the fear of family, friends and neighbours reporting "inappropriate" behaviour to the authorities. The Carol Thatcher golliwog incident being a good example. And now I am going to stop ranting. Promise! Well, for today anyway!!

And finally ... I believe that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I could easily get started myself!

OH and I were saying exactly the same thing the other day. PC is a social evil, and remarkably similar to those two hardline extremist regimes.

And today I was looking at a map and noticed an area of sea off the coast of The Wash called 'Black Buoy' and I instantly thought 'Yeah, I can see me talking about that in mixed race company and getting some (forgive me) black looks. I know in parts of the US 'buoy' is pronounced differently, but as you know, here in the UK it's the same as 'boy'.

That got me thinking about how many words and phrases we'd have left if we carried this stupidity to it's logical conclusion. I'll leave all that to your imagination. Have fun.

For what its worth I think sooner or later there will be a violent lurch to the right, politically. The do-gooders and PC people have ruined this country. No discipline at home or at school. No respect for authority etc. Coupled to this just look how disgraceful it was for our troops to receive a reception like that!. People will get fed up of all the mandy pandy over the last 40 years and react by joining a party which promises to really get things done, like in Germany, the Nazi party. That's how Hiyler got started.

So why is it that when so many of us feel the same way we can't seem to get anything changed? It's so frustrating.
