The System Worked - UK Edition

"The system worked" in the case of a businessman who the authorities said wrote a line in an e-mail which some bureacrat deemed potentially "offensive."

"The email, concerning a planning appeal by a gipsy, included the phrase:
‘It’s the ‘do as you likey’ attitude that I am against.’

Council staff believed the email was offensive because ‘likey’ rhymes
with the derogatory term ‘pikey’."

Good god, it's almost unbelieveable that England was once the greatest nation on Earth. Remember, according to many Europeans (and many Liberals here) we Americans are the uncivilized, barbaric ones, and in Europe people have more freedoms and more rights. Yeah, if you believe that I've got a perfectly good bridge to sell you in London.

I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.

I hereby find the uses of the word "dud" to be offensive, given that it sounds like a derogatory term used to describe people of my ethnic heritage.

I jest, but good lord that is retarded.
