Hey 

I need your help and all the people who will see this. It's for a good cause :P
Annually, at my university (Bangor University in Wales) there is an activity called The Bangor Jail Break. There are teams of 2/3 people who have to try and get as further away from Bangor as possible in 48 hours without paying for transport. Basically I have to hitchhike. My plan is to go from Wales to Amsterdam or even further :love:
The event will take place between 4-6 April; it is for raising money for charity and each team member must try and get sponsored by 50 per person. This means that in order to take part I need to raise 50. I know it sounds a lot but every little helps. Also, any currency and any amount will be ok. So, please please check out the page below and if you could sponsor me that would be great !!

Also, if you do sponsor me I will take photos in every place I go and I will post them all on here and I can even meet with you if I pass your city <3

Please take a look at the page and remember, the donation does not have to be much.

It really worries me that 84% of this audience agrees with that statement, because the kind of people that say "political correctness gone mad" are usually using that phrase as a kind of cover action to attack minorities or people that they disagree with. I'm of an age that I can see what a difference political correctness has made. When I was four years old, my grandfather drove me around Birmingham, where the Tories had just fought an election campaign saying, "if you want a nigger for a neighbour, vote Labour," and he drove me around saying, "this is where all the niggers and the coons and the jungle bunnies live." And I remember being at school in the early 80s and my teacher, when he read the register, instead of saying the name of the one asian boy in the class, he would say, "is the black spot in," right? And all these things have gradually been eroded by political correctness, which seems to me to be about an institutionalised politeness at its worst. And if there is some fallout from this, which means that someone in an office might get in trouble one day for saying something that someone was a bit unsure about because they couldn't decide whether it was sexist or homophobic or racist, it's a small price to pay for the massive benefits and improvements in the quality of life for millions of people that political correctness has made. It's a complete lie that allows the right, which basically controls media now, and international politics, to make people on the left who are concerned about the way people are represented look like killjoys. And I'm sick, I'm really sick-- 84% of you in this room that have agreed with this phrase, you're like those people who turn around and go, "you know who the most oppressed minorities in Britain are? White, middle-class men." You're a bunch of idiots.
