image for Blue people demand to be treated as equals
The green people even have their own political party

Blues United For Freedom (BUFF) have approached the British government and demanded that they no longer be treated as second class citizens in the UK.

"We're people too!" exclaimed BUFF's spokesperson, Papa Smurf. "We are fed up of being excluded by society. Where are the blue people on television? Where are the blue people in adverts, magazines or on the boards of high profile companies?"

The origin of BUFF's outrage stemmed from Microsoft creating an icon called 'Indeterminate Person', which was a blue person, citing that this would offend neither the gender or race sensitive, a politically correct way of saying it was politically correct. This icon has been used across Microsoft's products where they do not wish to specify a person of a particular background, such as their Messenger product, and Word.

"It damn well offended us," said Papa Smurf. "Microsoft are calling all blue people 'Indeterminate'. I don't even know what that means!"

Orange, purple and green people have come out in support of BUFF.

"People of primary colours have long been discriminated against," said David Dickinson, celebrity front man for the orange. "At least the orange people have finally integrated into mainstream culture. Whilst Green and Purple people have their own political parties, the Greens in the UK and the Purple People in Italy. Blue are still looking for a way into society that allows them to retain their identities."

Harriet Harman, former integration secretary, has long been a supporter of minority groups.

"It is time that the blues took their protests to parliament," she said. "I will stand by them every step of the way."

There was one lone dissenting voice. "I don't want to be integrated," said Lee Ryan, a member of Blue.
