Nanny has managed to get her knickers into a bit of a twist the other week.
It seems that all the rules and edicts that she has been issuing are becoming a little bit contradictory, and causing Nanny to hang herself on her own petard.
Kirklees metropolitan borough council found this out to their cost earlier this month, when they tried to issue training document for their employees in which the term "political correctness" was banned.
Unfortunately the document has had to be withdrawn, as it is too politically correct!
So, the document bans you from saying the phrase "politically correct". However, the document itself has been banned because it is too politically correct.
The 44 page policy book, entitled "Equality Essentials", was drawn up as a guide for the council's 18,000 staff in West Yorkshire.
As befitting Nanny's Orwellian view of the world, certain words were banned as a matter of course; chairman, fireman and policeman because they exclude women, and "ethnic" because it was not felt to be "appropriately descriptive".
You know the routine, the same old shit that is used by councils, quangos and other crappy useless pseudo state "organs" to try to control people!
Remember folks, as Orwell warned (and as I keep reminding you), when the state controls the language, and your ability to express yourself, it also controls your ability to think for yourself.
The hapless employees of the council, or should I say employees of the taxpayer, were also instructed to come up with at least 10 things they could do on a daily basis to make colleagues feel better.
By the way the document was produced by officials for the former Lib-Dem/Green coalition, that previously controlled the council, so it is hardly surprising that it is a waste of space.
Guess what folks?
They used a 1950s study into the social psychology of Nazi Germany, known as Allport's Scale!
Why am I not surprised that the Nazis would somehow or other feature in this story?
Seemingly the good old boys on the council wanted to find out about levels of harassment and bullying in the workplace.
Anyhoo, the document stated:
"Use of the phrase 'political correctness' is at best factual avoidance
and at worst a direct physical attack."
Robert Light, who became council leader after the Conservatives took control in the summer, thought that the whole thing was a load of bollocks and decided to revise the policy.
He said that 99% of the document was common sense, but certain items were "part of a politically correct culture" previously adopted by the authority.
"We want to be known as a progressive council not a PC council."
Therefore the document has been banned, on the grounds that it was too politically correct, which in itself is of course a contradiction.
Maybe Nanny has brought us into some weird form of parallel universe where paradoxes can exist simultaneously.
Cue the Twilight Zone Theme!
Pity that the taxpayers of Kirklees had to pay for this pile of shite in the first place.
Will the previous council leaders apologise for wasting the taxpayers' money?
Will they fark!
