I know this column is sometimes accused of looking for the wildest, wackiest, most demented examples of political correctness gone maaaad (a phrase that must only ever be spoken aloud while speaking in a cockney accent, for some reason).

Even being seen to point out the essential absurdities of this ridiculous system is enough to have the mobilised masses of the sensitivity industry rushing to accuse any dissenter as being 'insensitive' or 'unhelpful'. Honestly, it's as if we're all supposed to have attended some secret meeting where it was decided what was acceptable and what wasn't.

Well, I'd love to have been at the secret meeting in Canada that recently saw a student forced to make a public apology. His crime? 'Micro-aggression' against black people.
