SIR - Referring to Amber Rudd using the term "coloured", Diane Abbott is right when she says that all offensive language should be stopped.

But Abbott herself once famously said "White people love to divide and rule". And never apologised like Rudd has.

Also, why are political journalists allowed to say "male pale and stale" when referring to parliament? And why is the term man-flu allowed? I've heard TV presenters say it.

If you're going to be sensitive about language when referring to demographic groups surely it has to apply across the board.

The oversensitivity and hypocrisy of political correctness and D&E has already created a world backlash- Trump, Brexit, Lepen and so on. But the PC Brigade are not learning.
