    Urh.

    God I should be angry at this. But I'm not.

    I just have this empty feeling, like my heart has been removed.


    It's just tragic.

    :(

    Anyone else having visions of a titanic-esk sinking of a ship with God Save The Queen in the background? ... Abondon ship! Abandon ship!

    This story doesn't surprise me, and it's quite sad that in todays society things like this aren't at all surprising and to be expected....

    All this shows is that we desperately need to look seriously at the idiots that are put in positions to make moronic decisions like that.

    Yet again this decision has nothing whatsoever to do with Muslims but all to do with a commitee who's members are all obviously a sandwich short of a picnic

    Oh for god sake you twerps.

    You can't blame the imigrants for this. Its the idiots that make these decisions that are to blame. End your little BNP meeting now.

    The fact is, muslims have been here for many, many years. Never heard a peep from about these stories, because they don't get offended! They know they arn't the 'home' culture, so to speak, and respect that.

    Its the middleclass morons that get offended on other peoples behalf that are ruining this country.

    And calling them 'Mudslimes' ... Call yourself a man? Grow up.

    It IS the other way around.

    Have you been to Spain recently? All the little British apes that go there to live. They buy places there en-mass and do **** all to integrate.

    But, oh, wait! We are british! We do as we please.

    For one thing, I def ain't pro BNP or NF for that matter.

    This is exactly it, there are people who worry about offending minority groups and bend over backwards to try and meet their needs (in a lot of cases it is unnecessary as often it is just a case of acting before a reaction rather than reacting to a reaction.)

    As far as I know I haven't heard any people who follow the Muslim religon complain about that story and this really is P.C gone wrong.

    Will people now understand what we have been trying to say about taking the attitude that people had a right not to be offended. It permeates through out our society and cases like this pop up...... and do more harm than good.

    How stupid are they, not realising that little Jonny Racist will be having a field day with this sort of press and attitude, especially coming from a government funded group no less.

    It will now be turned from trying not to offend people of a particular relegious group in the education forum, to actual racism in the form of people slagging off asians and arabs for trying to take over the country ... I can picture the jokes and comments in the pubs right now (and I know people who will come out with such drivel) :(

    WTF?!? I'm a muslim, and find that comment extremely offensive.

    Couldn't care less about the three little pigs story, that is just ridiculous. I loved that story when I was a kid!

    But you calling us muslims 'mudslimes' is deeply offensive, and downright racist in its own right!! :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Oh another thing by other way round I meant that if you go to a country you should adapt to the way of life in that country. It goes for anyone in any country.

    The other way round isn't British people being able to go to other countries and complaining that it isn't more like home and feeling hard done by because people in the country won't adapt to their way of life.

    Can I start a countdown on how long before this thread gets closed?
    I reckon it will be gone by 5.30.

    And yes, calling someone a 'mudslime' is not particularly friendly, guess thats why he is an ex-member.

    This doesn't make sense how can they ban a children's book because it mentions piggies yet we can walk the streets with a deeply offensive sausage or bacon roll, they best ban all pork related products just in case!

    These people who make these kinds of idiotic decisions should be made aware of the damage they are causing amongst the normal population and then be sacked and replaced by someone who has actually visited Planet Earth :mad:

    It's the "fear the prosecution" society we are currently breeding. Anything which could be construed to be offensive to a culture is banned for fear of reprisals. I can't say I agree with it but then I do expect it and see [partially] the reasoning behind it.

    It must be annoying for you when you get people like the judges of those awards speaking out on behalf of Muslims in this way, and then having to put up with insults because of what they've said.

    Generally, with this and other issues, I find that the do-gooders never actually ask the views of the people they're worrying about.

    So they are scared of 'upsetting muslims' and yet our far older Jewish community gets no consideration at all. I also don't see anything cow-related being banned for fear of upsetting Hindus.

    How interesting.

    I think decisions like this, made by idiotic committee's and people with too much time on their hands, are actually making relationships between communities worse.

    They are creating divisions where they didn't exist, and highlighting possible problems that weren't even conisdered.

    Do you really think there are thousands of Muslims out there who have been offended for years by the 3 Little Pigs story? Of course there isn't, because 99.9% of them wouldn't even think of it that way. But then an idiot highlights it and it gives a tiny minority something to moan about.

    Its time we found these people some real work to do, instead of pointless things like this.

    Surely most people could find most things offensive if they thought long and hard about it.
