UK Political weblog

pc Osama Bin Laden

‘Political correctness’ is changing the character of Britain or more accurately of Britons. Take the latest bit of nonsense. A middle ranking police officer in Cornwall, Ch Supt Colin Terry, dressed up as Osama Bin Laden complete with a face mask that can be bought in any joke shop and went to a small town carnival where he was collecting for charity. He has now been sacked from his temporary EU secondment to Afghanistan where he was helping with setting up police security. Well maybe that is just about understandable. He has also now been reported to the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) and likely to face disciplinary action from the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary.

For goodness sake, we in Britain have historically poked fun at those who we percieve to be our enemy or those who become pompous or set themselves above the rest of us. It cuts them all down to the size that they truly are.
