What happens when you fund a nonsense government agency

In this case it's the [UK] National Children's Bureau which obviously has WAY too much time on its hands. I mean, whoa:

The National Children's Bureau, which receives 12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

It just keeps getting nuttier and nuttier there across the pond, doesn't it? A three year-old saying "eew" to an unfamilar, yet foreign, dish is a now a "racist." (Although, why anyone -- kid or otherwise -- would say "yuk" to any food other than usual British fare is beyond me. British grub is probably the single WORST cuisine on the planet.)
