A propos our last post, Mr Nick Witney, CEO of the European Defence Agency, is obviously one of those cringe-making PC advocates.

One of his Agency's key projects is the development of a European UAV - pilotless drones otherwise known as "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles". But Mr Witney cannot bring himself to articulate such a sexist phrase. To him, they are "Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles".

No wonder he got the job.
