The Provisional BBC is a paramilitary organisation which split from the BBC in October 2006 in protest at its toleration of poor writing and Liberal Democrats. The Provisional BBC regrets any civilian casualties resulting from posts contained within, but lays the blame squarely at the foot of the Tories. It is our duty to resist them, by any and all means necessary.

Political correctness blamed for Darfur genocide

Following sustained international pressure, the Sudanese Government has named political correctness as the prime mover behind genocide in Darfur.

"It’s political correctness gone mad," said Vice-President Ali Osman Taha. Sudan has previously refused to name names, claiming it would prosecute culprits internally. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan welcomed the news, saying co-operation was crucial if conflict was to be averted. But critics argued the statement posed more questions than it answered, including "When did political correctness go mad?" and "How long was it before anyone realised?"

Political correctness is no stranger to controversy. It has already been accused of restricting freedom of harassment and causing the breakdown of the family unit. "All the warning signs were there," said Lynda Lee Potter, a fierce critic of the concept. "This monster was never really under control," she added, adding "Our children’s future is at stake."

The killer’s precise whereabouts are unknown, but the international community has pledged assistance in rooting it out "wherever it lies". The UN has begun assembling crack teams of specialist troops, including comics Jim Davidson and Bernard Manning, as well as football pundit Ron Atkinson. Atkinson declared he had a personal score to settle, after political correctness cost him his job.

Not everyone believed the claims. An anonymous e-mail argued political correctness lacked the capacity to carry out the attacks, claiming it was just a bogeyman created by the media to legitimate attacks on equality and local government. The media refused to comment, labelling critics "conspiracy theorists" and "communists."

Sudan’s civil war raged from 1983 to 2005, killing lots and displacing lots more. Since January 2003, lots have also been killed in Darfur and lots more displaced.
