No more ‘Vice Squad’ at the world famous Scotland Yard, political correctness has taken over. The unit, which traditionally dealt with prostitution and underworld crime (namely vice), is being renamed in order to be more politically correct and to reflect its increased sphere of operations.
The unit will now be known by the catchy moniker: Serious Crime Directorate 9: Human Exploitation and Organised Crime Command. Wow, that just flows off the tongue.
It was deemed that, in addition to the increased sphere of operations being undertaken by the unit, the word ‘vice’ was thought to have negative connotations. Really?
Wonder if they plan to change the Scotland part of Scotland Yard?
