  • Political correctness is madder than ever

    From The Scotsman :

    Originally posted by The Scotsman
    In more news from the "political correctness gone mad" department, a West Yorkshire hospital has banned people from looking at new-born babies because - wait for it - it "infringes their human rights."

    That's looking at them. Not smacking them, babynapping them or blowing smoke in their dribbly little faces. Looking at them. I don't remember where my right to have people not look at me is enshrined but I'll definitely be exercising it next time I do something stupid in public.

    The villain of the piece is Debbie Lawson , neo-natal manager at Halifax's Calderdale Royal Hospital, who claims "most people cannot resist cooing over new babies..." (actually, most of us can resist) "...but we need to respect the child. Cooing should be a thing of the past because these are little people with the same rights as you or me"

    No they're not! They can't drink, drive, vote or anything! They're bloody useless! And so is Ms Lawson's daft ban.

      I've edited your quote to reflect how I believe you meant it.

        That is downright idiotic. It's quite possibly the stupidest thing of the year.
