I'm not about to disagree with your opinion of those two, nor of the newspaper (sic) they write for.
Rascism - gone just a little too far
There is some middle ground though, there are some quite clearly ridiculous examples of political correctness. I seem to remember the Christmas lights in Oxford being de-Christmastized much to the behest of the local Sikh, Muslim and Jewish population.
That's not to say political correctness is bad though. On the whole it's made some wonderful improvements to society.
Again it's all about the context and language used, I tend to turn off when reading anything with such sensationalist language in the context of ethnic or racial issues. They're usually designed to inflame tensions.
So not only have you forgotten that you said "The only people who really complain about 'poltical correctness gone mad' ARE the kind of people who miss the 70's..." you didn't even spot where I'd quoted you?
grum - it doesn't really matter that Mr Armstrong-Braun is mistaken, Rusty was accusing anybody using that term of being a closet racist.
It's funny, because, I knew what RS meant. I'm sure most everybody else did too.
Where i work, amongst other restrictions, we can no longer refer to 'political correctness gone mad'. The appropriate phrase is 'political correctness living with mental health problems'.
