VisitBritain issues 50-page inclusivity guide advising against words like ‘blacklist’, ‘man hours’ and ‘blindspot’

Britain’s flagship tourism agency has told workers they can’t use words such as ‘blindspot’ or ‘man hours’ anymore as the language is not inclusive.

Instead of man hours, travel agency VisitBritain told firms hosting guests from overseas to say ‘person hours’ as to not to offend anyone.

he company gave out the 18-point inclusive term sheet to foster a ‘culture of belonging’, but it has been slammed as being ‘out of touch’, according to The Sun. 

VisitBritain – which is funded by the government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport – also warned not to use the term ‘guru’ as it is said to have been appropriated from Hindu culture.

Instead, the £54million-a-year taxpayer funded agency said to use the term ‘expert’.
