Here’s an amazing story;
A Scottish great-grandmother was shown mercy in court today after she was branded a racist for calling a man an ‘English t*at’ in a row over a disabled resident parking space. Charity worker Georgina McCole, 64, wept as a sheriff admonished her for hurling racist abuse at Leslie Bush during the argument over whether her granddaughter, who is not disabled, was entitled to use the space. McCole told Perth Sheriff Court she had responded to Mr Bush calling her a ‘Scottish git’ by replying that he was an ‘English t*at’. Sheriff Raymond McMenamin imposed no punishment on McCole after being told that she had no previous convictions and had never been in trouble before.
Listen, I have no dog in the dispute between McCole and Bush BUT there is no way this should ever have gotten near a court. I think McCole has a perfect right to call Mr Bush an “English T*at” – it is NOT racist, it is vulgar and stupid, although it is also at least 50% factual assuming Mr Bush comes from England. We are now entering the age where the Courts enforce the Neo-Marxist vocabulary of the politically correct and we let this pass without a murmur. Where will it end?
