We're The Government and We Are Here to Help

Britain’s female genital mutilation helpline receives an unexpected call:

A suspect contacted an FGM helpline to request the procedure for his two daughters after misunderstanding the purpose of the service for victims.
Mark Steyn comments:

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.
It’s a life-imitates-art moment. Observe this scene from Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator.
