The only man to have coached the All Blacks to victory in the Rugby World Cup says that political correctness is destroying New Zealand. "We are living in a PC world which is destroying us," he told a breakfast meeting hosted by educators Parents Inc. yesterday.
"We are living in a PC world which is destroying us, where you actually can't put the hard word on people when they have digressed and committed bad blunders," he said.
Story here in the Herald.
His story could be that of any decent parent in the country who sends his children or grandchildren away to one of the state's factory schools as decent human beings in the making, only to see them gradually captured by today's dripping wet orthodoxy.
The country's teachers colleges have a lot to answer for.
UPDATE: Just to show it's not just New Zealand being destroyed by the dripping wet tide comes the story of a nine-year old pitcher who's too good for the Youth Baseball League of New Haven, Connecticut. See Nine-Year Old Told He's Too Good.
