    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Is fiscal reponsibility the new political correctness on SZ?

    Once upon a time, most posters on SZ were fairly evenly split, between the pro or anti Ron brigades. The pro camp held sway for quite some time, however their position became pretty much untenable(IMO)with the unfolding of events in 2010 (if not before then). I have, however, recently...

    Being patriotic doesn't make you a fascist

    An interesting read, especially considering some of our recent discussion and debates on here. I'm a firm believer in this idea, and thank you Mr Billy Bragg for writing about it in this morning's Telegraph. ----------- A poll published this week suggested that the English were the least...

  9. Shrimperzone to decide

    Ok, in response to Aberdeen's assumption that Queen/Bowie's Under Pressure can be classified as a one hit wonder and mine that it can't due to the obvious fact they've had plenty of hits apart, can it really be classifed as a "One Hit Wonder" or has the world gone mad with POLITICAL CORRECTNESS...

    Nurse threatened with sack for offering to say a prayer for patient.

    Did anybody see the story in the papers today about the nurse who has been suspended for the "offence" of offering to say a prayer for a patient? She may even be sacked because of it. Funny, I thought this was supposed to be a Christian country as well? Political correctness sickens me.
  12. Mad Cyril


    Seeing as there isn't much going on today I thought I would canvass opinion on this story which is all over the news at the moment. Unacceptable racism, 'political correctness gone mad' or harmless banter between friends? I am willing to bet that we will never know the chaps true feelings on...

    Obese kids 'not obese'

    Link Parents are to be informed if their kids are obese (like they couldn't tell by, say, having a look?), with letters sent home after weight tests at the start and finish of primary school. However, the term 'obese' will be ditched in favour of 'very overweight', as the Dept of Health is...

    Are we starting to see an end to political correctness

    With one or two things happening in this country over recent times I'm convinced we're starting to see the end of wooly liberalism and can start to get this country back on track without fear of some namby-pamby do-gooder interfering. Am I just hoping or does anyone else sense the change ?

    Political Correctness. What gets you back up?

    .........oh Gawd! I hate to use the Daily Mail's favourite expression, but surely "this is political correctness gone mad?" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7149525.stm Perhaps Darren and Marcus Bent should reconsider having their names on the back of their shirts lest they offend?

    Jokes & Political Correctness

    Ok, here's one for you lot to get your teeth into. In today's climate of political correctness that invades our daily lives on a constant basis is there a limit as to how far a joke can be taken or a topic that is totally off limits? Leaving out ethnic racism and personal attacks -...
