Complaint to the Guardian.


This is my last pedantic whine, I promise.

Today I was annoyed by the political correctness of the Guardian newspaper.

Too little political correctness, that is, rather than too much.

On the front page there was a story about the “return of ‘Yes, Minister’ etiquette” to Whitehall as civil servants are being advised to stop referring to government ministers by their “Christian names”.

Christian names? How old-fashioned. They are first names.

Dear editors at the Guardian: please increase the amount of political correctness in your newspaper.

Thank you.
