Had diversity & equality training last week .
Political correctness gone mad in the extreme. It is no longer acceptable to describe the weather as nippy or there being a nip in the air for fear of offending anyone from Japan. I would never use derogatory terms or racist slurs, but I am pretty certain the average Japanese person would find no offense in the term whatsoever

Re: Cornucopia

They'd love what I call my wife then. I, in life go out of my way to be politically incorrect. There are so many words these PC Nazis are finding incorrect we will all be walking around not talking all in fear of been jumped on by these fools.
Manholes are now "raised cast iron works." They will always be manholes to me as will black boards. What next change the name of Blackpool, Blackheath, Blackwater etc etc.
I am surprised they have not edited out of the Dambusters Guy Gibsons dogs name. I have some early Rider Haggard books, Allan Quatermain adventures all printed around if not before the 1st World War and the language used to describe Africans is quite shocking but I suppose in those days it was acceptable but not so now, but I dont believe we should edit history, it shows what people and life was like then?
I once had an in depth conversation with a half cast oops smacked botty mixed race friend of mine querying if he had suffered must racist abuse in his life and he replied often by many people in this country. I queried this and put over the point of view that some of the people were not really racist but were using terms to upset him during an argument. I said if we ever had a nasty argument I would use racist terms to annoy and wind him up. He said "Stoo you are not racist." I said that proves the point I am trying to make. I think even Cammoron said racist words are only racist if they are meant to be racist.
These diversity people, PC Nazis are just trying justify their existence.
Just come in for a rest after a swearing session at a bike.

Re: Cornucopia

Blimey Stoo you & I will actually agree on something
I also watched that programme !
Distant echos of one of my Dads favourite terms ' if you can't feed 'em, don't breed 'em ' sprang to mind throughout.
... I liked the dog ...

Re: Cornucopia

Unlike any of the 2 legged ones in fact. What have we bred in this country? My blood is still simmering. £600 prams etc etc. Whats the point in working all your life when it goes to these leeches. One of them could not even get up on time to sign on 3 times.
There needs to be a fresh outlook on the whole system where those who deserve benefits and are incapable of work get enough to more than exist on and the rest are made to work to get benefits and are financial discouraged to breed.

Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole

Series 1 - Episode 4

Episode 4 | Benefits Britain: Life On The Dole | Channel 5
....
16-year-old Rebecca is expecting her first child with 17-year-old boyfriend Sonny, who is adamant that he will be in work by the time the baby arrives. Rebecca is the second-youngest of foster mum Anita’s four children. Now that Rebecca is pregnant and receiving benefits of her own, 38-year-old Anita’s welfare entitlement will also change. Nearly all of Anita’s kids rely on benefits in one way or another. 19-year-old Charlotte, for example, has not worked since leaving school and has been sanctioned several times for missing appointments. But Anita’s main concern is her accommodation. Having spent years fighting for a benefits-funded house away from the undesirable council estate where she grew up, she now fears that she will be unable to afford it when the children move out.
A baby on benefits is on 42-year-old Gordon’s mind too. The child which his daughter is expecting will be part of the third generation of the family now dependent on the welfare state. Gordon has not worked in decades and has very strong political views as to why work has eluded him and many others in the north of England. Gordon’s pregnant daughter Roseanne has been keen to start a family even though neither she nor her husband Mark – who as a history graduate has good prospects – have worked in two years.
Quick loans landed 51-year-old Leah so badly in debt that she had to declare herself bankrupt. Leah still wonders why loans were so easy to come by when she has relied entirely on benefits for her whole life. The little she gets now has to be carefully managed so that she does not end up back where she started. With a benefit cap imposed on her spare bedroom, and in her view a lack of suitable one-bedroom flats in Hull, Leah feels that she is caught between a rock and a hard place.

...

By chance anyone wants to see it ..

Re: Cornucopia

My mother used to work with adolescent girls who had the following mantra:-

"1 baby = flat 2 babies = house 3 babies = made for life."
this was 30 years ago and its getting worse.

PS This looks like out own private thread?

Now off to show one of my bikes for a charity function in Huddersfield. Archie enjoys it has he gets more attention than my bike, which he laps up.
Wearing my "Lancashire born and Bred T shirt to wind up the Tykes.

Re: Cornucopia

What a tiring day. Very hot and no shade at the charity exhibition. Archie as expected centre of attention by all and sundry so he was happy. He must have got fed up of been stroked and talked to. Just got my bike out of the van and am settling down to the footie match. Was in a good mood as I let a little girl have her photograph taken on my bike together with her teddy. Father really pleased I offered her the chance.
A bit fed up as my T shirt did not annoy anybody, must try harder next time.
