Who knew pondlife was so easily offended?

By Aussiegirl

Talk about political correctness! After reading this, I don't hold out much hope for England's future.

Sunday Times - Times Online

A DETECTIVE is facing disciplinary action by his force for referring to a career criminal as “pondlife” in a private conversation with another officer.

The detective constable, who faces possible dismissal from his job, has been told that the criminal “might have been offended” had he heard the remark, although he was not present at the time.
