I AM informed that Scotland no longer has Neets. No, not headlice – NEETS, young people who are Not in Education, Employment or Training. Not that the SNP “government” has succeeded in getting them all into work or training, they’ve simply changed their name (allegedly).
Instead of Neets, they’re now called Young Persons Requiring Holistic Empowerment Within A Safe and Nurturing Environment. Or something.
South of Carlisle, we still have Neets, but apparently the PC police took advantage of the change in administration at Holyrood last year to pounce on inexperienced new ministers and persuade them of the case that the term Neets was somehow offensive (of course).
Altogether now: “It’s political correctness gone…”
