A beer called Top Totty has been banned from the Strangers’ Bar in the House of Commons because its pump plate, featuring a half-naked woman, offended female MPs.
Well how obsurd! This is just another example of the ridiculous PC nature that has been allowed to creep into British society through the cotton wool and bubble wrap treatment that people or groups receive in order that they not be ‘offended’.
Shadow equalities minister Kate Green was left ”disturbed” after seeing the 4 per cent ale’s advertising in the popular parliamentary watering hole and demanded bar staff remove it from sale. What a silly woman! How has she managed it this far in life if she get’s offended by a few inches of advertising. Does Mrs Green close her eyes when she opens a newspaper so as to avoid any potential underwear or holiday advertising meeting her sensitive eyes? Does she only watch the BBC to avoid adverts that might cause her some discomfort as a woman? The advertising here is meant to be a clever play on words, it is not an explicit or crude visual of a woman – I fail to see what I am meant to be offended by.
It should be welcomed that regional produce is making its way to the Capital, an area of the country that is often criticsed for being insular. In any case, a guest beer is exactly that, only served for a certain length of time before being replaced by another.
Check out the pump plate above, are you offended…?
