Prats Of The Millennium - The EU

Prats Of The MillenniumI 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.

For why?

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.

    We've heard this nonsense before, but usually from local authorities, similar 'public' organisations, and feminists. It is a very well deserved award. This nonsense sums up all that is wrong with the EU, and the sooner we elect a government whose first priority will be to withdraw Great Britain from this organisation the better!

  2. Why don't they just decree that MEN are unmentionable, and have done with it?

    I once committed the unpardonable sin of introducing a woman as "the chairman" and was nearly lynched by a furious Pat Arrowsmith.

    This verbal PC stuff is not only ill-conceived, it achieves the opposite of what is intended by making those it is meant to benefit a laughing stock.

  3. Watching the National Geographic channel last night, I kept noticing that some twit studying the Mekong River Catfish (which are gigantic, by the way), kept referring to those who catch these fish as "fishers."

    That's weird, I thought, but maybe in the UK (he was Britsh) this is a common expression. Just then, he slipped up, uttered the word "fisherman," then anxiously backtracked to use the (apparently) now mandatory "fishers."

    Ermmm, did I say he was a "twit"? I meant to say TWAT!

  4. Ken,

    You are correct, the first thing any dictator needs to do is control free speech. They then have to control the news and education....This is exactly what the left are doing now. The left is controlling the political agenda at the moment, they control the EUSSR, they have just taken control of the USA and already control many developing countries.
    I cannot remember any time within my lifetime when those of the left controlled so much of the world.

    The left have in effect controlled education since the 1960s, but their control of the printed media is far more recent.
    The left have always controlled the state's broadcaster in this country but now, they don't even attempt to hide the fact.....Sky, in my opinion, have a very left wing news agenda which, appears to me, to mirror that of the BBC.
    The influence of the left on our printed news media is a far more recent thing and is worrying....The only media that is not dominated by the left is the blogsphere but the EUSSR are attempting to control that and have set up proposals to license bloggers....This we must fight.

    The EUSSR are well deserving winners of the award.

  5. Euro-nanny is behind a lot these days including having your travel movements monitored.

    I sincerely hope your wish comes true.

  6. Who cares what we are called. I'm happy to be called most things, Missus, Miss, Ms, Oy ... who do they think this is offending?

    Why don't they just insist we refer to everyone with the prefix 'citizen' and have done with it?

  8. Here's somehting that will cheer you all up:

    The presenters of The Today Programme were chortling about this. I'm too worried about the EU to find it laughable.

    Perhaps it will come to riots before the EU collapses. I'd prefer our government to do the decent thing: explain the Lisbon Treaty in plain English to the electorate and have a referendum. Then withdraw.

    There can never be a decent sort of person in the EUSSR - they are all socialist control freaks, or failed socialist control freaks riding the gravy train after being slung out of politics by their national voters.

    The only way to deal with this disgusting soviet-style political construct is to leave it.

    Reform it, as some moron politicians prate on about, is about as likely as reforming the mafia.
