And we think we've got problems!

While Canadian "Human Rights" Commissions are bonkers, as Ezra Levant's book makes clear, they're only mildly deranged compared with those freaking crazy Brits:

BRITAIN appears to be evolving into the first modern soft totalitarian

... a campaign to alter people's psychology and create a new Homo britannicus is under way without even a fig leaf of disguise.

... The Government is pushing ahead with legislation that will criminalise politically incorrect jokes, with a maximum punishment of up to seven years' prison.

... In the past 10 years I have collected reports of many instances of draconian punishments, including the arrest and criminal prosecution of children, for thought-crimes and offences against political correctness.

... In September 2006, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, Codie Stott, asked a teacher if she could sit with another group to do a science project as all the girls with her spoke only Urdu. The teacher's first response, according to Stott, was to scream at her: "It's racist, you're going to get done by the police!" ... she was arrested and taken to a police station, where she was fingerprinted and photographed. According to her mother, she was placed in a bare cell for 3 1/2 hours.

... A 10-year-old child was arrested and brought before a judge, for having allegedly called an 11-year-old boya "Paki" and "bin Laden" during a playground argument at a primary school (the other boy had called him a skunk and a Teletubby). When it reached the court the case had cost taxpayers pound stg. 25,000. The accused was so distressed that he had stopped attending school.

... Hate-crime police investigated Basil Brush, a puppet fox on children's television, who had made a joke about Gypsies. The BBC confessed that Brush had behaved inappropriately and assured police that the episode would be banned.

And on and on ....

Godawful! This is what we can expect in Canada if our HRCs are not shut down or seriously reformed.

Recently, a 64 year old woman was ordered by her local council to put clothes on three of her garden gnomes. A neighbor found them offensive. No joke.

I have received much from Britain, but it is a country one wants to leave when things get to this stage. That's why I am in Canada.

You'd think that with all the serious social problems Britain faces, such as a high drop-out rate, public drunkenness, teen pregnancy (the higest rate in Europe) that the government would have more important issues to deal with than non-PC schoolchildren.
On the other hand, it does deflect attention away from the government's inability (or unwillingness) to deal with the serious problems.

And I should have also added that this is what comes of multiculturalism enforced under the watch of "human rights" fascists.
