Hypocrisy: January 2005 Archives

January 29, 2005

Tory tries Political Correctness, gets religions mixed up.

England: A prospective parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party claims that a proposed design for a Labour poster is anti-semitic. The poster shows the faces of leading Tories Michael Howard and Oliver Letwin, coincidentally both of Jewish descent, superimposed on winged pigs, with the slogan The day the Tory sums add up. Apparently, while we were not looking, Judaism secretly turned into Islam, if the claims of Andrew Mennear, that there was nothing more distasteful for a Jewish person than to be associated with a pig, are true.

In reality, Jewish law only forbids eating the flesh of a pig,--a Jew may use a hogshair brush, for example. Perhaps Mennear needs to study a bit more--maybe he could start by finding out which old cliché the proposed poster refers to.

Movie Mix Up

United Kingdom: It wouldn't be the first time a movie mix up has made it into the Prattle, this time the heroes of our tale are Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne, from Wellington, Somerset.

A devout Baptist couple who bought a Doris Day DVD from a supermarket were shocked to find a sex film instead.
