A Bri­tish uni­ver­sity’s stu­dent union is crack­ing down on Hal­loween and try­ing to squeeze every last bit of fun out of the hol­i­day.

So, for­get “of­fen­sive” com­edy out­fits be­cause it may “af­fect peo­ple’s right to a safe space.”

The Kent Uni­ver­sity chap­ter of the group made fa­mous by the comic Lil Ab­ner, SWINE (Stu­dents Wildly Indig­nant About Nearly Ev­ery­thing) has even made a list.

Kicked to the curb are cow­boys, Na­tive Amer­i­can cos­tumes, pri­ests, nuns, “the Cru­sades, Nazi uni­forms,

ISIS bombers, Is­raeli soldiers and The Prophet Mo­hammed (peace be upon him).”

The union said: “Stu­dents are free to en­gage in fancy dress whilst en­sur­ing they abide by the Fancy Dress Guide­lines which in­clude be­ing of­fen­sive, dis­crim­i­na­tory to an in­di­vid­ual’s race, gen­der, dis­abil­ity or sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion or based on stereo­types.”

Po­lit­i­cally cor­rect cos­tumes in­clude: “me­dieval vil­lage, cave peo­ple, aliens, the United Na­tions, AN­CIENT Greeks and Ro­mans, doc­tors and pro­fes­sion­als.”
