Over the weekend the media informed us that a 64 year old man with severe learning difficulties in Greater Manchester died having been provoked by a teenager. Whilst I in no way condone the crime.....er 64 ? Learning difficulties?????? What has happened to our language? The bloke was a mental retard, why can't we say that? Might offend him? Kind of unlikely considering his rather uncommunicative life condition currently. Might offend people of a similar ilk? Kind of unlikely too considering they tend to inhabit another planet viz the mental sphere of things. PC, dontcha just love it?
