Britain's prettiest village pub is told to take down its hanging baskets because the council deems them dangerous...primary schoolchildren in Wales have to start their day with a head massage...Blackpool Council has given donkeys Fridays off and a guaranteed lunchbreak...A barrage of these orders is issued almost daily from an army of equality officers, social inclusion workers and health and safety executives. They are laying down a moral code that no one asked for and no one voted for but which is encroaching upon every area of our lives. It is given the general title of political correctness. It started with a few nips and tucks to the language in the name of equality. Now we are entering an age in which we are excoriated for using the word 'lady' or allowing our children to climb trees. Death is upon us unless nanny is on hand to tell us to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day or wear a hat in the sunshine. "Strictly No!" explains how a new all-powerful 'meddling class' is taking over the world. We are threatened by a tyranny led not by a man with a moustache but a battalion of social workers armed with social exclusion orders. Welcome to a world gone mad.
