More PC lunacy

The Middlesex Crusaders cricket team has played, quite happily, under that name for about ten years now, but next year they will be playing as the Middlesex Panthers.

They are having to change their name for fear of upsetting the Muslim and Jewish communities as it could be interpreted as a reference to the religious wars waged by Christians in Europe against other faiths. Being such a recent part of history, the 11th and 12th centuries, they are quite naturally uppermost in everyone’s minds.

Wonder if the Black Panthers will object to the new name…
