Why should anyone be surprised, though? The woke feel that their opinions outweigh everything else, even the law.

Lots of knee-jerking without any intellectual content - wokery to a "T".

"without any intellectual content" extends to our schools now I suspect, at the risk of getting into an etymological debate on a Sunday morning, I was fascinated by a missive from two "headteachers" (they come in pairs in Sussex, apparently, must be a dangerous place) in the following article:

SCHOOL RUMP Primary warns parents not to wear ‘skimpy’ short skirts on the school run

Co-headteachers Carol Collins and Emma Eardley said: “Whilst well intended as guidance, the school acknowledges the wording could have been less prescriptive.”

Surely "proscripitve ?

As adjectives the difference between proscriptive and prescriptive. is that proscriptive is proscribing or prohibiting, for example as according to a norm or standard while prescriptive is of or pertaining to prescribing or enjoining, especially an action or behavior based on a norm or standard.

Spot on!

"Surely "proscripitve ?"

It's been a constant observation of mine that the more a teacher demands to be a 'spokesman', the less chance they are a good advertisement for their profession...
