I am using my "special powers" (I have many!) to make a very special award of "Prats of The Millennium" to the leaders of our "respected", "democratic" and "non corrupt" EU.
They have deemed that using "Miss" and "Mrs" is no longer to be allowed, as part of their desire to create a "gender neutral" language.
An EU booklet sent by the Secretary General of the EU parliament to all our "hardworking" and "value for money" MEP's tells them to stop referring to a woman's marital status; Madame and Mademoiselle, Frau and Fraulein and Senora and Senorita are all banned.
Other banned words include; sportsmen, statesmen, man-made, firemen, air hostess, headmaster, headmistress, laymen, policeman etc.
Oh my head is about to explode!
We can assume that "human", "mankind", "man" and "woman" will soon be banned too!
Quite what the cost of this booklet (printed in all the languages of the 20 plus - how many these days?- members of the EU) is to the poor old taxpayers of Europe I dread to think.
Aside from the quite obvious stupidity of this idea...are women so weak and pathetic that they need legislation to protect them from words?...the fact that the EU, in the midst of the worst recession in decades, thinks that this is an effective use of time and resources gives a very clear indication as to the "quality" of the EU.
Orwell warned that dictatorships seek to control people by manipulating the language, so that the people can no longer think for themselves or express themselves.
The EU is fulfilling Orwell's vision.
The EU, well deserving Prats of The Millennium.
As a side note, I can assure you that within the next decade the EU dream will be a shattered burning husk, as the people of Europe wake up to the fact that they have been taken for a ride by a bunch of incompetent, greedy, freeloaders who are without any question or doubt corrupt and undemocratic.
The cities of Europe will erupt as people seek to reclaim their national identities, laws, customs and taxes.
It will be very unpleasant, were the EU run by decent people this civil venting of spleens entirely avoidable.
