True and amusing tales of the extremes of political correctness, in the style of the ‘Clangers’ series created by David Mortimer. Wonderful examples of the seriously absurd – wittily presented, usually involving holders of authority taking themselves too seriously and making fools of themselves: the army, city councils, schools, etc. For example, there’s the story of Birmingham City Council, who announced that ‘Baa Baa Blacksheep’ was racist … and the ensuing (and hilarious) hoo-ha. Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep articulates our inner suspicions about the PC brigade in a masterly manner, providing a welcome and much-needed reality check.
David Mortimer's pedigree for searching out the moments when it all went wrong springs in the first instance from a failure to master any position on a rugby pitch, despite trying most of them. This enabled him to recognise a hundred and one ways of throwing a match away, and from this position of authority he has since dispensed lungfuls of good advice from the safety of the touchline.
