Crystal balls

Political correctness is reaching dizzy heights in Britain. The Red Cross is to stop using the red cross symbol as it offends Methodists, reminding them of the crusades. It is to be replaced by the red crystal irrespective of the fact that the red crystal symbol reminds Frit, and many others, of the loathsome invasion of the giant red crystal shrimps back in 1227. Also, the British ambassador to Poland has been criticised by Polish officials for supporting a march planned by ‘gay rights’ groups. The ambassador said he was simply acting in line with Foreign Office policy, which calls on staff to push ‘gay rights’ when representing the UK abroad. Does this mean the staff are pushing the same gay rights with equal vigour when representing the UK in Riyadh?
