Sacred Victim Status for Fat People in UK

At last some good news out of the sinking remnants of Britain. Soon even normal people will qualify for the many perks of victimhood. All they’ll have to do is put on a little weight:

A parliamentary report published [Tuesday] says that a lack of self esteem is damaging a generation of children who may struggle with school work and forming friendships.

All children could now attend body confidence and self esteem classes at school.

And now calling someone ‘fatty’ should be deemed a hate crime, these MPs say.

The Government should consider putting ‘appearance-based discrimination’ on a legal par with race and sexual discrimination, the report suggests.

The Equalities Act 2010 makes it unlawful to harass, victimise or discriminate against anyone because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.

There was a time when you had to be a blood relative of the king to have that kind of status. Before long, everyone in Britain will be special. But they’ll have to communicate with hand gestures, because anything they could possibly say will be regarded by someone as hate speech.

On a tip from FPST.

    Seriously? That is so GAY!!!!! {/sarcasm off}

    The Ministry of Hurt Feelings will be located next-door to the Ministry of Silly Walks and right down the hall from the Department of Redundancy Department!

    Plus you’ll be an evil “bigot” if you don’t want to date a chick who weighs 300 pounds.

    So sad what is happening in Britain. A once proud nation that sold out to a socialist government that makes all kinds of promises to deliver…what?…all in exchange for their personal freedoms. Although there is a minority there who have been kicking and screaming all the way down the path to hell, most have been fundamentally enthusiastic about disenfranchising themselves. Many (most) do not see what is coming; even worse are the ones that do and still approve thinking their social position/status will exempt them from the fate of most of their countrymen. They will find out the hard way.

    It’s hard to imagine a so-called “free society” more crippled by political correctness than the US. But, here we have the once-great nation of Britain, so strangled by PC that true freedom and liberty are nothing more than mere illusions, as they are here in the US. All it takes is a weak and gullible population of sheepish people, and both the US and UK are perfect examples.

    I have put on enough weight over the years to be promoted to queen!

    And by the way I have the PERFECT hand gesture! Kind of an “all occasion” one.

    What if I’m offended by “political correctness”? Can we then dump this whole charade, or will I have to sue every pantywaist on the planet in order to enjoy a little conversation with some meat on it?

    Maybe I can get a doctor to declare that I have Tourette’s syndrome to excuse my outbursts of normal speech.

    I’ve got a novel and self-esteem building idea for the obese of the UK: put the fork down, matey.

    And for the ladies: put the fork down, love.

    Ship the British fatties to New York. Bloomberg will make ‘em skinny.
