Lefty Lunacy: London Underground goes gender neutral


Transport for London workers have been told to stop using the term “ladies and gentlemen” because it is deemed ‘offensive’.

In an effort to go ‘gender-neutral’, TfL bosses have told their staff to use the term “good morning everyone” in order to signify the fact that gender has been consigned to the dustbin of history.

Campaign groups have welcomed the moves, calling the gendered language “polite but really belonging to yesterday”, for a time when people used to be men or women.

As from tomorrow, we shall therefore change our name to The Conservative Person. Not.

UPDATE: Listen to co-editor Laura Perrins slamming TfL’s decision on TalkRADIO here.
