Nanny Bans Man
Congratulations to the knobheads in Chichester District Council for once again proving that councils are infested with people who are totally out of touch from reality, and cannot be trusted to sit the right way on a lavatory let alone spend their citizens' council tax.
It seems that the most pressing issue facing Chichester is not the economy, crime, the environment or indeed balancing the books but the phrase "man in the street".
The good people who sit upon their fat arses in the council have decreed that the term is "inherently sexist, not a fair reflection of reality, and makes the views or work of women invisible".
They have therefore banned it.
Do they seriously think that this absurd waste of time, and money, is a major step forward for womankind?
Members and staff of Chichester District Council have been told to use "a positive alternative" such as "the general public".
They have also been told to stop using phrases such as "manning the switchboard", and the words Mrs, Miss, girl and lady.
So what do you call a person of the female gender who is a lady or a girl then?
I was taught to use the term "lady" out of respect and politeness.
To enforce the new Orwellian style orthodoxy, Chichester District Council have used taxpayers' money to publish a language guide which has been sent to parish councils in the area.
The list of banned phrases also includes:
I suggest that you drop the council an email that includes as many of the banned words as possible.
