      Maybe the lockdown is not helping.

        I can't keep up with it all (I don't think I want to either)........

        People seem unable to do right for doing wrong these days, like at a Japanese Restaurant which opened in Canterbury a while back, the (British) waitresses dressed up in Japanese traditional clothing and hairstyle, and the local MP, instead of supporting and welcoming a new venture, marred the occasion by accusing them of 'cultural appropriation'.........

        I thought people could wear whatever style of clothing they wish in a free country, not berate them for it......

        There wasn't any 'freedom of clothing' in China in Communist years, everyone had to wear a MAO suit, black, grey, or navy blue were your colour choices !..........
        I'd opt for the navy blue!

          No, just a factual one.

            I'm not.

            I don't obtain my facts from just one source, but several.

            The latest (true) things they've banned are glitter covered Christmas cards, and the spirit of ecstasy mascot on Rolls-Royce motor cars.

            A mantelpiece just doesn't look the same without a few glittery cards adorning it, how dare they forbid me from purchasing any........

            I'm not likely to own a Rolls-Royce, but banning it's traditional mascot is tantamount to sacrilege.......

            The do-Gooders make me sick.......

              Would you care to provide your source for this 'fact' Mark.

              https://www.amazon.co.uk/glitter-chr...hristmas+cards

              https://www.zazzle.co.uk/glitter+christmas+cards

              Some outlets are no longer selling them because they aren't recyclable, they haven't been banned.

              As for the Spirit of Ecstasy, there is a Daily Mail sourced story that the EU have banned the 'glow -in-the dark' version of the Flying Lady. You can still shell out the £3500 premium if you want to buy it, but you have to disconnect the electrics.

                Oh........

                Well, yes, it was the DM I read about the spirit of ecstasy palaver, it didn't mention it only applied to the illuminated one, I had the impression it was banned completely !.........

                Thank you for the links to Christmas cards, I also had the mistaken belief they were banned across the board........

                I'll make no further comment..........

                  Glitter is under close scrutiny as it causes pollution as it's made from micro-plastics and is highly likely to go the way of the micro-beads found in cosmetics due to the damage they do to the natural environment and, ultimately, humans.

                    Mark, you wouldn't get quite so many wrong impressions and mistaken beliefs if you simply stopped reading the DM!

                        Yes, I did read something about that, I recall growing up you could buy it in little plastic tubes, when I was around the age of 12 (the height of glitter pop music), we used to cover over faces with it, trying to be trendy, like the pop stars, lol.........

                            It might, as long as that isn't the only thing you read, or you might get a biased viewpoint, just like with most other newspapers

                              Surely there must be some newspaper in the UK which aspires to responsible, professional journalism i.e. truth, impartiality, accuracy?

                                If only there was. I’ve certainly never seen one.

                                The “journalists” who write for them have all sold their souls and write whatever the current owner wants. You can tell by how quickly they reverse their deeply held convictions whenever the ownership changes or whenever they change jobs and start to work for the people they used to oppose.

                                And they claim to have convictions behind what they write
