You're lucky, I have to live here! (Not where the council itself is, but in Kent. FYI for those who don't know - Kent is a county - kind of equivalent to a state in the US - Tunbridge Wells is a town in Kent).
This ridiculous "political correctness" is pervading the whole of our society here in England. So much so that I wasn't at all surprised to see this headline.
It all started a few years back when some stupid council decided to rename Christmas "Winterval", to avoid offending people of non-Christian faiths. Of course, they didn't actually consult any of those faiths, all of whom said that they thought it was a stupid thing to do! But now it seems to be everywhere - this is just the latest example of many ridiculous things done in the name of 'diversity'.
It just makes me want to attend one of their council meetings and say, "let's have a brainstorming session"...
Sounds like New Zealand. P.C gone crazy that gets pushed on everyone.
NZ also has the added bonus of the government giving millions upon millions of dollars to one particular minority for something that happened 168 years ago that they have already paid for six dozen times. Which that particular minority drinks away and buys a prominent sporting team that they send to the brink of bankruptcy/oblivion.
Proud of my nationality, but sooo happy I don't live there anymore.
