Efforts are being made to clean up the Geography of Britain and the world.
To begin with the Isle of Man is a name that cannot continue as it is blatantly sexist. In future it will be called Isle of Person.
Then the Isle of Wight, so often misspelt Isle of White, is definitely out. The new name of Isle of Multiethnicity is sure to catch on.
Ireland is another one for the chop. It is an insult to Irish people to imply they are bad tembered. In future Eire only will be used. There are problems in Northern Eire where the Protestants are very angry at the name change.
Germany has to be removed from Maps. It suggests the country is full of germs. We will all now refer to Disinfected rather than Germany.
Australian republicans have plans to replace Australia by Aboland and
Trinidad is to become Trinimum/dad.
Mapping the future world is an exciting business. You have five days to put your views forward to the Geographical Correctness League. So take this opportunity to search out those offensive words for cuntries and banish them while you can.
