Fun with Sonia

Emma Clarke, who recorded many of the announcements on the London Tube (and is therefore known as Sonia, because she "getS ON YER nerves"), has also placed some "alternative" announcements on her website:

I'm a senior Human Resource Professional and I think the dismissal of Emma Clarke is a classic example of all that is wrong with our current culture of "Political Correctness". Her spoof announcements may not have been exactly wise, but have they seriously offended anyone? No; except for the narrow minds that think they have to be the monitors of what they, in their self-righteous wisdom, think might offend, but usually doesn't.

My advice to them? Get a life you peasants. (with apologies to real peasants everywhere); learn the difference between acceptable humour and unacceptable insensitivity; then look in the mirror and see what it is you are practising.

I read about that earlier today and I was shocked that she was fired for something that seems so harmless.
