EDITORIAL

Editorial comment from Matthew SteeplesOur editor tells it like it is and he rarely minces his words

No Offence Taken

Matthew Steeples questions the validity of  getting easily offended as a man “offends” a woman on the Underground by dressing as Samuel L. Jackson

 

People will always find reasons to be offended it seems. In the days of the overblown #MeToo movement our snowflake society cannot cope with anything that isn’t politically correct.

 

This morning’s Mail Online reported that a woman was outraged when she spotted a white man who’d made himself look like Samuel L. Jackson for Halloween on a London Underground train.

 

Whilst I personally wouldn’t do such a thing – for starters, I do not “do” fancy dress of any kind – that the bizarrely named Petra-Isabella Joli declared it “a bit racist” is a little bit ridiculous.

 

Why not get angry about something a little bit more serious?
