David Cameron offends the politically-correct Reich
Anyone would think he had endorsed the BNP or advocated paederasty. All he did was express a little humour - you remember, that quality of being amusing, the ability to take a joke, the capacity to communicate the comic, ironic or witty.
But the moment he says, 'Ver are yur papers?' in a mock German accent, with clear historic context which his audience appreciated, the humourless politically-correct police are mobilised to curse and condemn.
Appalling gaffe - racist, xenophobic, bigoted, etc., etc.
Zis ees absolutly appalink. Vatever happent to ze Briteesh sense of humur?
God has a sense of humour. After all, He made Gordon Brown in His image.
And the Old Testament is riddled with humour, Hebrew jokes and amusing puns.
Are politicians supposed to be devoid of humour? Has politics become the arid pursuit of the obsessively puritanical and the tediously sober?
Cranmer only wonders what self-censorship there is within David Cameron which would doubtless draw the line at impersonating a Pakistani accent.
