The LDP is moving to create a nanny of the month effort, which will start very soon. Big government, and idiotic bureaucracy do not wait however. Here is one of the early entries from “Strewth,” in the Australian:
God forbid what it may mean in ancient Samarian.
THE bureaucrats at the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority thought they had found another way to put aside common sense and indulge in politically correct gormlessness.
Newcastle lawyer Kristen Perry has a nickname since childhood, Kiki. Five years ago her husband gave her personalized number plates for her BMW: KIKI.
But at the RTA, this harmless set of letters was deemed offensive and the authority wanted them removed. The RTA said the name means vagina in the Filipino language, Tagalog.
Not that we would query the RTA's knowledge of obscure languages, but sane people might wonder where the harm lies, irrespective of its meaning in Tagalog. Yesterday, the RTA relented and said Perry can keep her number plates.
Hasn't the RTA got some roads to fix?
