GUEST,Patsy BS: The right not to be offended (87* d) RE: BS: The right not to be offended 24 May 14


One morning on my way to work a young lady in a headscarf got on the bus and before she sat down she asked did I minded if she sat beside me, in an apologetic way and I said 'yes of course' it would never have occurred to me to say no or object. Then it occurred to me after that she had obviously felt shame about the tragic incident carried out by two extreme Muslim fundamentals in the UK to a soldier home on leave. It was not long after that event. At first I felt offended by the situation and British attitude (not the lady) that she should feel the need to ask permission to sit by me on a bus because of the actions of someone else. It seems that the Newspapers are hellbent on creating and stirring up as much bigotry and trouble as they possibly can.

It is a sad state of affairs that Britain has gone so OTT in political correctness and double standard with everything else it isn't the Britain that I grew up in and knew. Times change I know and one has to adapt but this particular generation has become so artificial even down to the 'blubbing of tears' I would add to that the growing trend of grown women screaming with delight every five minutes. Not with passion no just because someone else has put a lick of paint on their walls! I blame Simon Cowell and Jeremy Kyle.
