Dear Derrick, this morning http://melrosemusings.blogspot.com/2010/10/political-correctness.html posted a passionate attack on the political correctness society, which unleashed a rant from me, copied here in the hope of starting a rational conversation with other bloggers:-
Grrr. Where will it end? Could we start a campaign for the abolition of “chair” for chairman? Why would I want to be called a receptacle for bums? Mzz for Mrs or Miss, and for the whole stupid concept of ‘correctness’ when used in conjunction with the word ‘political’ – a total contradiction in terms.
