Should Xmas be downgraded???

A proposal from the UK...
Christmas should be downgraded in favour of festivals from other religions to improve race relations, says an explosive report.

Labour's favourite think-tank says that because it would be hard to 'expunge' Christmas from the national calendar, 'even-handedness' means public organisations must start giving other religions equal footing.

The leaked findings of its investigation into identity, citizenship and community cohesion also propose:

• 'Birth ceremonies', at which state and parents agree to 'work in partnership' to bring up children

• Action to 'ensure access' for ethnic minorities to 'largely white' countryside

• An overhaul of Britain's 'imperial' honours system

• Bishops being thrown out of the House of Lords

• An end to 'sectarian' religious education

• Flying flags other than the Union Jack.

The report by the Institute for Public Policy Research was commissioned when Nick Pearce, now head of public policy at Downing Street, was its director.

IPPR has shaped many Labour policies, including ID cards, bin taxes and road pricing.

I used to be an unabashed monarchist and anglophile, but seeing the Mother of Western Democracy turn into socialist totalitarian nightmare little by little inclines me to think it is time we cut our last ties with the Empire of old, lest we get infected by the same defeatist, Orwellian spirit. The gradual loss of freedom in the name of leftist political correctness in the UK frightens the hell out of me. We have plenty of our own left wing cretins foaming at the bit to control every aspect of our lives for the greater good of their perverted ideology.

It's as though mass insanity has seized England.

Did you see the story where teachers in an overwhelmingly Christian school are being "ordered" to wera a Hijab for a day, to further multicultural understanding?

Or a few months ago, in Glasgow, when workers in a hospital were prohibited from eating food in public places where Muslims might be during Ramadan?

Group insanity!

After reading this, I'm convinced the sun has finally set on the British Empire.
