Overview

It started with a few nips and tucks to the language in the name of equality. Now we are entering an age in which we are excoriated for using the word "lady" or allowing our children to climb trees. Death is upon us unless nanny is on hand to tell us to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day or wear a hat in the sunshine. Strictly No! explains how a new all-powerful "meddling class" is taking over the world.

Strictly No! lampoons their silliness and reveals the self-interest in PC thinking.
