Toddlers who dislike spicy food branded 'racist'!

Moving on from the illiberal liberals of the Church of England, we get a further dose of those who want a more controlled society. A certain organisation, the National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care. We are here talking of three-year old toddlers. This outfit sounds decidedly creepy.

There's a terrible culture now pervading society which will not tolerate ideas and beliefs that have not been vetted and approved by the PC Thought Police. As I've said countless times, there is a whole heap of difference between calling somebody a nasty name and an innocent remark. Racist and derogatory remarks from anyone of whatever age are to be deplored and to be tackled as such. However, drawing up a Stasi-like reporting mechanism does no good AT ALL!

Here we are talking of children. Children, for heaven's sake. These social manipulators don't see a gentle and reasoned approach to changing a child's behaviour as good enough. No! They want more. They say, "No racist incident should be ignored. When there is a clear racist incident, it is necessary to be specific in condemning the action." Even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can "recognise different people in their lives". Nurseries are encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council. The guide from the NCB added - "Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution. In fact, the opposite is the case."

These silly people suggest that a child is "racist" if it turns its nose up at spicy food. Well, my thought police friends, I've got news for you. My children turn their noses up at certain Indonesian dishes my wife cooks up "Too spicy!" my son shrieks. If you want you can come round and sort him out. I'd like to see you in action. My word, what a bunch of creepy characters.

We should all be opposed to racism, but all of us should be on the look-out for such bogus organisations as the National Children's Bureau!


That's crazy calling people racist based on food taste preferences!

I agree. It would put all the celebrity chefs in the dock for starters!

Would they be judged intolerant of others if they refused to eat pork or beef or any other religious taboo foods? No, they would be asserting their cultural diffences that we must respect and value.

I think its deemed OK to refuse pork on religious grounds, but not to make casual remarks. It's these that the Thought Police are listening out for!
