One that sneaked in under the radar... the vein of '...It's political correctness gone mad!'

At the beginning of the week, Keir's favourite toilet paper published this story
A toddler was ordered off a bus because the foreign driver was 'offended' by his England football T-shirt, his mother has claimed.
Sam Fardon, 27, was allegedly told to get off the service with her sons Dylan, two, and 10-week-old Adam as they made their way to a childcare group.
The unnamed driver, who had a Polish or Eastern European accent, said Dylan's white England shirt was 'offensive' and he threatened to turf the family out on the street.
Obviously the Fail didn't do the most cursory background check, or even speak to the Bus company before running with the story, because if they had, they would not only have discovered that the mother is a thief but also that FirstGroup had no bus driver in the area fitting that description, and had been unable to get in contact with the liar, sorry, the aggrieved party to discuss the event.

Keir wonders what attracted the Mail to the story? Could it be "...who had a [xyz] accent..."? No, it wouldn't be!!!

Obviously the Heil will be running a retraction and apology, you couldn't make it up!
