Has England gone mad? Fire breathing dragon yanked from book. Too “dangerous”

the Daily Mail


A leading childrens author was told to drop a fire-breathing dragon shown in a new book – because the publishers feared they could be sued under health and safety regulations. It is just one of the politically correct cuts Lindsey Gardiner says she has been told to make in case youngsters act out the stories.

As well as the scene showing her dragon toasting marshmallows with his breath, illustrations of an electric cooker with one element glowing red and of a boy on a ladder have had to go.


In case anyone was worried about the British Empire rising again they can safely put that idea to rest. Political correctness has taken them round the bend. Take a look at that dragon. Can you imagine anything more threatening or likely to make three year olds run amok than that? (That’s sarcasm, in case you missed it.)
