Correct me if I’m wrong

Heard the one about the eight-year-old Swedish boy who was told he had to invite everyone in his class to his birthday party, whether he liked them or not?

Well, before you kick up a fuss about what a terrible thing his parents have done, to tell their son who he can and can't have at his party, it was actually his school who made the decision.

Last week it was reported that the boy's school had stepped in when he handed birthday invites to everyone in his class except for two children.

The school complained to the child's parents that it was "a violation of the children's rights" and has now taken their complaint to the Swedish Parliament.

Crazy, but this is just the latest event to suggest that "Political Correctness" is getting way out of control.
