The crazy march of political correctness is continuing to gather pace in the UK as it bulldozes its way through every aspect of our lives. The current issue in line for PC demolition is Mother’s day celebrations. A headmaster in a school in Wales has banned the children from making Mothers day cards. Her reason is that 5% of the children have little or no regular contact with their birth mothers, or have suffered bereavement.
From my point of view this is another mad decision on two counts. Firstly, it is just another case of the minority beating the majority. Secondly, has it been considered that this small number of children might wish to make cards for the ladies that are now looking after them, be those step mothers or other carers.
Why is it that every good tradition in this country is being attacked by PC gangs?
