Save Piglet campaign rocks on
Lost Budgie Blog: Dudley Council Backing Down over Piglet Ban? Not Really…
Maybe. A little bit. Sort of.
Dudley Council members in Britain had previously banned toy pigs and other pig-related items in municipal offices as a result of a single complaint from a Muslim. Among the banned items were piggy banks, novelty pig calendars and a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.
Now, the same Council leaders say they will not accept “extreme forms of political correctness” – but neither have they rescinded the ban. The Council is going to have “an urgent review of the procedures.”
“Urgent review” is not a victory for Piglet.
Also, if “extreme forms of political correctness” are not acceptable, the Council position seems to be that “MILD forms of political correctness” are acceptable.
The war over Dhimmitude still rages – and there has been no victory yet won in Dudley Council.
