Political Correctness Gone Mad

Always nice to see in our wonderfully multi-cultural society that a group of non-elected (and probably middle class white folks) have decided that something may be offensive to Muslims. Oh, and probably offensive to builders as well.

Nice story from The Register about a digital book version of the Three Little Pigs entitled "The Three Little Cowboy Builders". Despite it having previously won "Best Primary Resource and Innovation in Education" prize at the Education Resource Awards, Becta (the government's educational technology group) explained to the publishers that they "could not recommend this product to the Muslim community".

I'm guessing it's the pigs. For fuck's sake. Can't we let the Muslim community decide for itself by seeing if they want to buy/use it? Rather than having some self appointed group of righteous twats decide it might offend them?

It's stuff like this that really irritates me. As you may have guessed.
