The clinically applied word, spastic, became politically incorrect because children and idiots used it in a pejorative way. 

 

Changing language in response to how the dumbest in society utilise it is utterly stupid. There is no end. Same as there's no end to appeasing the perpetually offended. I.e liberals and feminists etc.

Justine Greening out - well overdue!  Muppet....  (I made a mockery of her when she did QT in Plymouth as head of DFiD! It was a pity it was the 'warm up' question before the cameras rolled otherwise she'd have been shown as a bumbling FW on national TV.)

 

JRM not in......?  What, are they scared of him or is he being sidelined in favour of lesser talent because he's the wrong gender / colour?

The real question is why we've fallen for it all....

 

anyone ever take the time to work out why we listened to them?..  what moral authority these hard left nazi's ever had?...

 

We just listened and presumed their point to be true....   Oh by the way, they're not liberals, they really are hard left Nazi's..

Dunno mate. 

 

I think it's the media that push these evolutions and it's human nature to conform.

How do you mean, it's a trick question?

Do you believe in the story of Evolution. Even Darwin questioned his own theory.🤔
