    So many words have been bastardised by their misuse & Political Correctness. The term Spastic was always a perfectly valid word, until it started to be used derogatively & the term vanished into oblivion. The word 'Gay' just used to mean 'Happy'. How long is it going to be before it is not going to be PC to use the term 'Black' any more - if it hasn't reached that stage already. What about the famous Robertsons Golli***s? How many Black people have you encountered who were ever genuinely offended by it?
    Personally I find Political Correctness offensive & it should be banned accordingly.

    Criminalized?

    Is this fined before a magistrate, or would you like a fixed term jail sentence attached to it?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    The true voice of the brexiter: "I find Political Correctness offensive and it should be banned accordingly." (my bold)

    Accordingly? Are you using that word correctly? Are you really saying that because you find it offensive it should be banned? You realise you are saying the reason something should be banned is because you don't like it and that applies to any issue, not just political correctness?

    Incidentally, basic manners are an example of political correctness. So if I were to call you a f*****t m***n you couldn't complain about my rudeness, merely argue whether I'm right or not.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    What I was actually popping in to say is that the Queen's Speech is a must watch this year. Most years you know the gist of what She's going to say and in a way this year is no different: A call for unity and Her happiness about Harry's engagement I can predict. I'll want to go over the detail carefully, though.

    It's times like this Heads of State matter and I'm thankful we have Elizabeth at present. Whether you are pro or anti monarchy She is very good at Her job and there is no-one else I can think of as a candidate for Head of State who commands anything like the respect She does.
