Satire: UK News – Miliband to outlaw ‘telling the truth’

Making truthful statements based on fact about certain subjects will be made illegal by Labour leader Ed Miliband, if successful in the UK general election next week.

Under the new law, to be named aggravated candour, a person who:

  1. openly and publicly rejects the smears, half-truths and outright lies of official liberal-left ideology and/or state-sanctioned political correctness, and;
  2. engages in dangerous honesty and thereby expresses certain uncomfortable ‘truths’ which conflict with such smears, half-truths and outright lies,

shall be guilty of an offence. Examples of such ‘truths’ are as follows:

  • The climate hasn’t warmed for 18 years despite increasing man-made CO2 concentrations
  • Strong border protection that deters illegal immigrants saves lives and isn’t ‘inhumane’
  • Free speech is a right that everyone should enjoy, not just those you happen to agree with
  • Borrowing recklessly without any conceivable way of paying it off is bad economics – most people learned that at primary school
  • Socialism as a governmental system has failed countless times, yet parties of the Left keep trying it over and over again
  • Importing an entire underclass of unskilled asylum seekers, who have no intention of integrating into your society, is – guess what? – a bad idea

and, most controversially of all:

  • Islam is a religion of violence, supremacism and conquest
  • Islamic hatred for, and aggression towards, non-Muslims, and in particular Jews and Christians, is primarily the result of many verses in the Qur’an calling for such acts, and follows closely the examples recounted in the biography and teachings of Muhammad.

Anyone expressing such views will be guilty of aggravated candour, and will be sentenced to twenty years in a government thought realignment camp, or alternatively, a university.

  1. I can only quote from President Truman in a wire to General Macarthur at the end of WWII when he said the following;
    “Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!”

    I expect Bill Shorten will make a similar announcement any day now.

    …along with his “promise” to bring the budget “back” to surplus, if he is elected Prime Minister.
