A Little Misunderstanding Re the FGM Helpline

British authorities have decided to forgo prosecuting a helpline caller:
In another [case], a suspect contacted an FGM helpline to request the procedure for his two daughters after misunderstanding the purpose of the service for victims.
The droll Mr. Steyn comments:
Oh, dear. What an unfortunate "misunderstanding". The gentleman had called the Female Genital Mutilation Helpline thinking it was a helpline set up by Her Majesty's Government to help you find someone to genitally mutilate your daughters. In the rich, vibrant diversity of the modern multicultural state, it's easy to see why the poor fellow might make that assumption. Just give it a couple more years, sir.
Years? In terribly "accommodating" Old Blighty, I give it a couple more months, tops.
