when i first saw the hdline i thought it was a joke. silly me.

I happen to glance at a headline online yesterday, without paying a lot of attention to the story that followed. It was something that went by fast and I thought was the start of a joke I had no time for. Believe me folks, right now my hands are very full and so I imagine a few things will escape notice.
However, when the story appeared in the morning paper, I realized I wasn’t looking at a joke.  Unless it was a very bad one.
Look at what the culture has now come to. What other words I wonder, will crop up in the future that “might” be offensive to one or two idiots? By idiots of course I mean those of a politically correct nature, with no other life but that of those on whose behalf they are taking offense.
I’m not sure, but those of you like Christopher who are quite well read in sci-fi might know.  Was there ever anything in science fiction (1984 aside) that had as it’s focus or even as a side story, anything as insane with regard to how words are used. It’s been many years since I read ‘84 and do not recall if that story followed the course we are on today.
You may recall a year or so ago there was a verbal dust up over the use of the word black ball. Which faded as other more bizarre news overwrote that one.
So now here we are with the term blacklist. 
Has anyone ever in the history of the entire world, ever actually been seriously or even mildly offended by that word? Liberals don’t count.

Police IT department bans word ‘blacklist’ in case it is deemed racist

Police IT staff have been banned from using the word ‘blacklist’ because it could be considered racist.

The Police Federation has condemned the move as a ‘waste of time’ and ‘an irrelevance’.
The term whitelist - a list of acceptable contacts - has also been banned.
Security services chief Brian Douglas wrote in an email: “Information Board are uncomfortable with the use of the term Whitelist (and I presume Blacklist).
“I am sure we can appreciate the sensitivity around the use of such terminology today so please ensure it is no longer used.”

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said that the change was not one of policy but simply a move to more ‘appropriate’ phrasing.

He said: “This is not a change in policy. It is a change in internal ICT terminology which reflects a more appropriate use of language in a professional, policing environment.”

John Tully, deptuty head of the Met Police Federation, said while racism was very much an issue - a number of allegations have recently been made against Met officers - the latest move was trivial.

He said: “In real terms it’s an irrelevance. We list things and we call these things by a particular name - does it matter if there’s a colour in that name?
“I really do think we have more important and pressing matters to concern oursleves about at the moment, such as the Tom Winsor report into police pay and conditions.

“I represent the rank and file in the Met who won’t be worried by the Met changing the name of a list.

“There are far more important issues at stake in the future of British policing than to waste time concerned with such trivial matters as this.
“I do need to temper that with the background that we are in where there are a number of serious allegations of racism going on.
“But if you look at the bigger picture it’s an irrelevance.”

Sure thing. And this move will alleviate the problem. Perhaps blacks who are arrested for criminal behavior won’t shout race when arrested.
On the other hand, hey. It might work.  Just like in the USA.
After the darkies burned down part of LA, every street and hwy in Calif. was named after whatsizname. There’s even a national holiday now where another day without mail and another day when banks close and oh yeah. There are even schools named in his honor. And it worked fine huh?
It calmed the savage beast and appealed to the liberal left and all the white idiots who really yearned to be one of the brothers.
And the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their minions have all gone away.
So maybe this police dept is on to something. Ya think?
Hey .... how about a national holiday (Brits don’t already have plenty) honoring say, Nelson Mandela?  And another one for Gandhi. And even a worthy muslim just to show how all inclusive this club can get.  Then there’d be so many national holidays honoring so many (minorities only need apply) that nobody would have to go out to work and all would go on the dole.  Except whitey.
Seems like a plan to me.

(probably headed that way anyway)

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
