That's right. In the UK the PC brigade are now like the Thought Police inMitch said:So because the girl was from India, pointing out that she was unable to
help and actually mishandled my demand would be considered racist ?
This goes beyond politically correct. It is downright abuse
Orwell's 1984, and have stifling control over what we can do or say. In the
above case it would be not so much the person's incompetence that was the
main problem, but that fact that her thick accent was indecipherable -
complaining about that aspect would be held to be racist, as it
discriminated against her nationality. In the UK it's called "playing the
race card" - in any dispute between two UK citizens (they don't even have
to be from another country) if one of them is coloured, or has a foreign
accent etc. they will immediately scream "racial discrimination" and the
native, white Briton will end up in court.
