The Woke Minefield

Political correctness is such a minefield. In the U.K. the government has been in all sorts of trouble for not automatically giving the retired archbishop of York, John Sentamu, a life peerage, which would have meant that he kept his seat in the House of Lords. It was implied that this snub was because he was a black man.

It now transpires that his peerage had merely been delayed because the government did not want to upset the guardians of political correctness by awarding Sentamu the honour whilst the Church of England was still subject to an inquiry into its murky past involving the sexual abuse of children by its employees and the covering up of much of it by the bishops.

Some days you just can’t win.
