Maybe they should spend more time working, rather than slacking, to justify the cushy jobs & salary they have - if they worked in the real world (not a cushy government number) they wouldn't get way with what they do.

Didn't they get sacked? Moron. You should see the stuff they get away with emailing each other in my office!
This is one of those that makes my head spin. This is the paper that led the crusade against the Brass Eye special because jokes about paedophiles crossed the lines of taste and decency, and yet a sizeable chunk of the comments are moaning that sacking people for distributing these images is PC gone mad!
What utter 'PC' nonsense. Inappropriate? maybe, funny? depends on your sense of humour, but worthy of losing your job? definitely not. First thing to go under a dictatorship is a sense of humour.

The email harmed nobody and was mildly amusing. The PC Brigade just have no sense of humour.
Inappropriate yes. Worthy of sacking? Only in this politcally correct country would it warrant a sacking. Happy Christmas

Again this is political correctness gone mad.

The main article calls it 'an appalling image' and point out that they were 'trained social workers – whose job is to protect vulnerable children', but their readers are keen to downplay it. Once again I find myself confused about what is and isn't acceptable, and what is and isn't politically-correct. The Mail seems to be outraged by the image - is the Mail now politically correct?
