'Political correctness gone mad': Man asked not to wear Union Jack jacket because it’s 'offensive'


A man in South Yorkshire, England has been asked not to wear his Who-style Union Jack jacket by alleged council officials because it may cause offense.
Jason Mawer was given the jacket for his birthday in January.  Its design is inspired by legendary rock band The Who, and being a big fan, he was thrilled. This joy turned to shock, however, while walking around his hometown when he was confronted on two separate occasions by two different people who told him to remove the jacket because it could cause offence.  Mawar says he believes the hypersensitive busy-bodies are council officials.
