    The Dark Ages - BANNED!

    Post  Admin on Tue Dec 01, 2009 6:24 am

    While browsing The Guardian newspaper the other day and reading the story regarding the 'Hoard of gold found' by the metal detectorist Terry Herbert, I was shocked as I scrolled down the page and came to this:

    "It is no longer politically correct to refer to the period as the dark ages" -

    What on earth is happening to the country? this is insane! No

    I hope it isn't just me that thinks this is Political Correctness Gone Mad.

    Fucking crazy innit mate.
    I propose a revolution and a mass forced exodus for all the pc crew, send em all to Afghanistan for a few months or summat where they can count "collateral damage" or win "hearts and minds" or some other such shit.
    How i'd love them to try pontificating to the taliban.
