Political Correctness is about not telling the truth. Or at least, distorting the true facts. So now we live in a society that cannot face the truth or call a spade, 'a spade'.

Political Correctness - British and American versions

Why is it wrong for Members of the Royal Family, or Prime Minister's wives, to comment on things as they see them?
Are we not supposed to live in a free society?

Anyway, here is a story about an ant and a grasshopper.

 
American Version:
  The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies, out in the cold.

THE END

The British Version:
 

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others less fortunate, like himself, are cold and starving.
The BBC shows up to provide live coverage of the shivering grasshopper; with cuts to a video of the ant in his comfortable warm home in Hampstead with a table laden with food.
The British are stunned that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so while others have plenty.

The Respect Party, the Transvestites With Starving Babies Party and the Coalition Against Poverty demonstrate in front of the ant's house. The BBC, interrupting a Rastafarian cultural festival special from Grimsby with breaking news, broadcasts them singing "We Shall Overcome".

Ken Livingstone laments in an interview with Panorama that the ant has got rich off the backs of grasshoppers, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his "fair share".

The Tories and the other pratts are quick to jump on the bandwagon, accusing the government of discrimination against Grasshoppers. In response, the Labour Government drafts the Economic Equity and Grasshopper Anti-Discrimination Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant's taxes are re-assessed, and he is also fined for failing to hire grasshoppers as helpers.
Without enough money to pay his fine and his newly imposed retroactive taxes, Camden Council confiscates his home.
The ant moves to France, and starts a successful agribiz company, funded by the EU.

The BBC later shows the now fat grasshopper finishing up the last of the ant's food, though spring is still months away, while the Government-provided house he's in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he hasn't bothered to maintain it. Inadequate government funding is blamed.

Diane Abbot is appointed to head a commission of enquiry, which will cost around £10M to investigate the circumstances.

The grasshopper is soon dead of a drug overdose. The Guardian blames this on the obvious failure of Government to address the root causes of despair arising from pressing social inequity.

The abandoned house is then taken over by a gang of immigrant spiders, praised by the Government for enriching Britain's multicultural diversity, who promptly set-up marijuana growing operations and terrorise the community.

THE END
