'Vile and tasteless' toy?



Toy guns are common so why not this one?

A [British] luxury department store has apologised for selling wooden toy versions of Soviet-era rocket launchers.  London store Liberty was forced to pull the £23.50 toy from is shelves following a number of complaints, with some describing it as 'vile' and 'tasteless'.

Available in baby pink, yellow or natural wood, the design appeared to be marketed at younger children.  The toy was based on Katyusha rocket launchers which were first used in the Second World War by the Soviet Union.  Recently, they have been used by Hezbollah militants to fire rockets into Israel and during the Libyan conflict last year."

As anyone with an open mind can see, Britain is a nation drowning in it's deep addiction to extreme political correctness. And whenever we read these bizarre stories, i often ask why no outrage from the British people? Do they go along with their govt's PC addiction? That question usually gets me blasted by some Brits who come to this site, yet they always fail to answer the question.

For Britain to have gone this far with their addiction, it would most definitely be necessary for the majority of the Brit population to have gone along with it. Meaning, they are going down the drain and the people don't seem to mind it. And to that i say, good riddance.

The reason why you don't read the "Brits'" reply is that you are incapable of seeing it, and you continue to make such grossly huge generalizations, which you could just as well apply to your own country, which even invented PC in the first place. Don't blame the victim of US idiocy!

3:37, we know from surveys that the British hate the UK in large numbers. One survey had nearly 50pct wanting to leave Britain if they could.

The pink color probably offends gays, so THAT's the likely reason it's being pulled.

That couldn't be the reason since most Brits are gay.

I bet the Muslims are ones upset.

They don't want people know that the missiles are being used on Israel and don’t want people to know how intolerant and murderous they are!

3:37 AM + 6:07 AM + 3:38 PM are clearly cases of yet more dumb americans who believe what they read or hear in chauvinist US media, making them believe they live in some "American Dream" while it compares badly with other 1st world countries. None are utopian these days, but the US population are always made to believe in "the Emperor's New Clothes".
