What about those distinguishing marks?

In days of old, not so long ago (approximately 20 or so years ago), the government was relatively sane and sensible and the police caught criminals.. remember those days?

Political correctness was a word that hadn't yet been thought of and human rights was for people that genuinely feared for their lives. One of the things the Police asked a witness was "did the perpetrator have any distinguishing marks sir? Yes, you'd say, he had a heart tattoo with "mum" written in it or a scar...

Well, you can forget that now.. identifying distinguishing marks is against their human rights... "When Tracy Ryan spotted a suspected burglar emerging from the dog sanctuary where she works, she thought she would have little problem pointing him out to police.

After all, he had a large port-wine stain on his face. But when police set up an identity parade, they refused to take the man's distinctive birthmark into account - in case it infringed his human rights"

"An officer from the Nottinghamshire force explained that the mark was too rare to be included in a profile of the burglar when it was entered into a computer database.It would leave only a small pool of potential suspects in the electronic ID parade, he said, breaking police rules.

Do what? If the guy is stupid enough to commit a crime and has a port wine stain on his face, he must expect it to be part of any description a witness would give the police... surely? Not only can we now not mention whether the suspect was "not white", we're now not allowed to pick out any distinguishing marks!!

Bloody ridiculous, this government is totally insane, must be all those pills they're not taking!

I'm so sick of it all I'm going to tell a couple of jokes

Police in London have found a bomb outside a mosque..
They've told the public not to panic as they've managed to push it inside.

During last night's high winds an African family were killed by a falling tree.
A spokesman for the Birmingham City Council said 'We didn't even know they were living up there'.

Two Asian heroin addicts have injected themselves with curry powder by mistake - both are in intensive care ...
One has a dodgy tikka and the other one is in a korma.



  1. I lol'd at the heroin addicts one! :)

  2. The term Political correctness comes from the Fabian Society, in conjuncture with the Frankfurt school of Marxism in early thirties Germany. It essentially promotes "Third Way Politics". Hence what do New Labour profess to be?

    We just didn't look hard enough at what these vile fuckers were all about.

  3. We all need to stop being such sensitive little flowers. People have become lame and rather pathetic.. I don't mind being called a Pomme by Australians for instance I don't care if people take jokes about women, none of it threatens or upsets me.

    There's little enough to laugh at as it is... we should be able to take a joke!
