Politically Correctness Lands a British Singer in Jail

Here's a warning to all musicians performing in the birthplace of individual liberty - or at least the Magna Carta. If you cover Carl Douglass' "Kung Fu Fighting" in the United Kingdom, prepare to be arrested. The sensitivity police are on the prow.

A pub singer has been arrested on suspicion of racism for singing the classic chart hit Kung Fu Fighting.

The song, performed by Simon Ledger, 34, is said to have offended two Chinese people as they walked past the bar where he was singing.

The entertainer regularly performs the 1974 number one hit, originally by disco star Carl Douglas, at the Driftwood Beach Bar in Sandown, on the Isle of Wight.
