A poster which aims to warn about the radicalisation of youngsters by terrorists does not feature the words radicalisation or terrorism because “they may seem scary”
…there are fears the lack of directness instead risks disguising the point of the campaign to the extent parents will not realise that help is available.
Former police officer Stuart Bower said: “It seems to me it is political correctness. In my experience as a police officer, if you are worried about something happening you cannot beat about the bush.”
Unless it’s Rotherham, eh, Stuart?
…community leader Tariq Jung said it was right for the posters to be sensitive and parents would grasp their meaning in the current climate.
Really? Ah, well. It’s the NSPCC spending its donations so I suppose I shouldn’t…
The Home Office has put forward £190,000 to fund the campaign and train the NSPCC counsellors.
Mr Jung, chairman of the Brighton and Hove Muslim Forum, said: “They are right to be sensitive about it because if you keep harassing Muslims you are going to put them in a corner and that’s very dangerous. We don’t want to do what the French are doing.”
That sounds familiar. ‘Don’t call us a ‘religion of peace’ or we’ll kill you!’
