As you may know, I hate political correctness almost as much as I hate Bliar and Brown. I saw a wonderful story today in the paper.
A childrens' zoo and theme park have a railway on their premises that is themed and is based on Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. Occasionally, one of the workers at the zoo dresses up as the Fat Controller, Sir Topham Hatt. This is very popular with the children so the zoo decided to advertise for a full time Fat Controller.
The only problem is that the zoo authorities have been advised that they cannot advertise specifically for anyone who is (a) of not inconsiderable girth and (b) a man!!!
Presumably their advisers would be as happy for a Posh Spice lookalike to be given the job as for a John Prescott lookalike!!!
If you have a chance when voting, please vote for anyone who promises to make political correctness a criminal offence.
