PC Britain takes it too far

31.12.2009

A campaign initiated by a local council has begun that shows Britain to be the PC crazy nation we all suspected it to be.

Thankfully, a counter-campaign led by The Online Bingo Club has been launched to correct such silliness!

Initially started by John Sayers, (one-time Mayor of Sudbury Council based in Suffolk) who insisted the age-old tradition of bingo callers using bingo calls; such as ‘Two Fat Ladies – 88’ or “Legs- 11” ought to be banned on grounds that it causes offence to ladies over a certain size (88) or women with, errr…legs (11)

This is another example of Political Correctness in Britain “Gone Mad” and thankfully, the Online Bingo Club, took matters into their own hands and begun a counter-campaign already backed by 1000’s of names in the form of a petition and managed to make the headlines in other countries already in the search for more names.

Site founder Rob Hutchinson has declared his goal is to achieve the support with 10,000 signatures and to then take the petition to the Local Council in Sudbury for the attention of Mr Sayers.

Bingo has had its own fun vernacular for generations and it is very much a part of the Bingo heritage. None of the calls are ‘offensive’ or insulting but intended as affectionately appealing – which is how they are taken.

Good luck to Rob Hutchinson and The Online Bingo Club
