I have read the bits that Labour donīt want to write into their rules, and it looks fair enough to me. But they must capitulate or be branded antisimitic / racist / Nazis, on-and-on. And, if they donīt get exactly what they want many will leave the country and go to live in Israel.

Today, Boris has written an article in support of the Muslim face-covers (re: Denmark problem), and people are lining up to get him to apologise and resign. When probed, it is evident that many of those complaining about Boris have not even read the article he wrote, but that does not stop them being outraged.

One Muslim leader suggested to the radio interviewer that British Christians would be equally upset if Catholic nuns were targeted - he did not believe it when told that nuns were routinely the subject of jokes and humour.

Seems to me that integration is dead and buried.

I also ( because I am a cynic ) have linked the Corbyn business to the back stabbing Blairites in his own ranks, who will do anything to get him out before the next election. I think this Jewish thing will be found to be tied up with them.

I donīt think I would fit in with British life as it is developing. It seems very different to the country I left in 2003 - I suppose all ex-pats say that.

Unless of course religious bigotry and divisive hate is only wrong if its the Muslim flavour.....
Could be because the DUP to most on the mainland means nothing, nor does anyone know much about them or even care for that matter.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Ever since the introduction of 'human rights' it seems that everyone is falling over themselves to find offence in any comments. No wonder the term 'snowflake' is thrown around.
Shall we have thought police next to make sure that we dont think anything offensive? The proposed privacy laws will allow the state to decide your privacy, which means that the state will also decide what can be said about you. That's not protecting your privacy, is it?.
It's all very well for Sir Cliff Richard to sue, and I do have a sneaking sympathy because of the way the BBC reported matters in his case, but, never forget that news is what someone doesn't want to see printed or broadcast; the rest is just advertising.

We are all entitled to our thoughts and opinions whether or not they are offensive to others.
I don't want the state deciding how or if I am offensive via MP's legislation. They have a vested interest in keeping their own business out of sight in all too many cases. If we cannot express or receive a contrary opinion to someone without taking offence we may as well stop communicating by speech.

Oh, we have! Everyone is on the phone. . . .twitter,messenger, facebook etc etc.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

An undercover investigation into how easily any question asked on Israel by a Labour Party member can be twisted and a case within the Party of Anti Semitism can be started ....8min.... in the video ... by a Group called Friends of Israel and who was behind the stall at the Labour Party Conference. Seen at the beginning of the video

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Would you find it acceptable for a parties representative to publicly state that "whilst there were still Catholics in Belfast, the councils waste incinerator was under used"

Or is that community just needlessly taking offence

I sometimes think it takes a special kind of person to go into politics. Then I weep

What religious beliefs anyone has is beyond my control, what any political Party does to get its policy's through is also beyond my control. The DUP were elected & take their seats in Westminster, therefore their votes count. There is of course a way of counter balancing their votes but a certain Party refuses to take their seats, again, thats beyond my control.
Westminster sits...........Stormont choses not to, that also is beyond my control.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Pathetic Chips

You are trying to justify religious hate from one flavour of religion and indeed legitimise and rationalise it- whilst standing with those who have their own racist agenda in solely finding a religious hatred from a different community as unacceptable -

No hiding on this one Chips- either hate filled religious bigots are unacceptable or they are not

For god sake man how can the like of self serving careerists like Johnson say religious bigots are unacceptable - then join with them in govt!!!!

This local DUP councillor certainly was a bigot. I believe he was expelled from the DUP, charged and jailed for incitement for this disgusting remark... later to be murdered by a Republican group ... just rewards maybe ....
