Political Correctness Gone mad

Can you believe this

The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London Olympics because they are deemed "too British".

Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be "offensive" to other countries taking part in the Games. The display team have performed at more than 4000 events worldwide, but the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have deemed the display team "too militaristically British". Red Arrows pilots were said to be "outraged", as they had hoped to put on a truly world class display for the Games, something which had never been seen before. Being axed from a British-based event for being "too British" is an insult - the Arrows are a symbol of Britain

The Red Arrows have been excellent ambassadors for British overseas trade, as they display their British-built Hawk aircraft all over the world.

The Arrows performed a short flypast in 2005 when the winning bid was announced, but their flypast at the Games was to have been truly spectacular.

It is to be hoped that common sense prevails

If you disagree with this decision, please sign the petition on the link below:http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/RedArrows2012/?ref=redArrows2012

Please do forward this on to everyone you can.

Sad day for traditional British culture. Im sure no one will complain when the commies celebrate Beijing 2008 in a traditional Chinese fashion. It seems to me that merely being a Brit is becoming offensive.

You might be interested in what I have just emailed to this bunch of nobbers after reading this. I used my real name, address and email.

I wont mince my words. I have just read how your department has banned the Red Arrows from the Olympics. ~What ******** in the department thought that one up. Why don't you people join the real world. If it was in Italy, you can bet your life they would be puting on a display How can something in Britain be classed as too British. 'Every' problem in this country of ours can be put down to you politically correct uninitiated, illerate wallies who think they know better than everyone else. Why don't you get a life and get out more.

If they don't like the word '********', tuff. It's in the Cambridge dictionary and means -
Definition
******** Show phonetics
noun [C] OFFENSIVE
a stupid person:
You ******** - you've dented the back of my car!
