Well done to Tunbridge Wells Borough Council for proving that their existence is futile. They have decreed that the term "brainstorming" is illegal, and replaced it with the catchy phrase "thought showers".
Officials Tunbridge Wells Borough Council fear that "brainstorm" might offend epileptics or the mentally ill.
What complete bollocks!
It is clear the the word used in context is nothing to do with derogatory remarks against those who are ill.
Margaret Thomas, of the National Society for Epilepsy, said:
"Brainstorming is a clear and descriptive phrase.
Alternatives such as "thought shower" or "blue-sky thinking" are ambiguous to say the least.
Any implication that the word "brainstorming" is offensive to epileptics takes political correctness too far."
A council spokesman said:
"We take diversity awareness very seriously. The majority of staff have taken part in training and been asked to use the term 'thought showers'."
