  • Big brands shun straight, white Britain in their adverts

    Advertisers are turning to gay couples and ethnic minorities to sell their products Advertisers are so worried about being accused of racism or homophobia they are shying away from using images of white people and straight couples. Marketing departments are even putting diversity above relevance to their target audience to avoid accusations of bigotry, a survey of 500 companies has found. A third of advertisers questioned said they had used fewer white models and heterosexual couples over the past year. More than a third of these said they were taking this approach to “prevent perceived discrimination”. The findings are likely...

    BBC staff will be asked to disclose details of their family income and upbringing, as part of new plans to ensure that the corporation is not dominated by the middle classes. The BBC will announce today that all new employees will be asked to answer a range of questions about their socio-economic background, including whether they were entitled to free school meals as a child, which the broadcaster says will allow it work out whether its workforce reflects modern Britain. The BBC has faced pressure from ministers, during the ongoing talks over the corporation’s new royal charter, to increase the...

    British Prime Minister David Cameron says he will make universities disclose what proportion of poor and ethnic minority applicants they admit, in an attempt to end racial and class discrimination that "should shame our country and jolt us to action." Writing in the Sunday Times newspaper, Cameron said that "if you're a young black man, you are more likely to be in a prison cell than studying at a top university." ...

    * Rt Rev. Richard Chartres praised two priests who had grown bushy beards * Applauded their desire to reach out to the 'majority of their parishioners'*Bishop described his own beard, which he grew in the 1970s, as modest *He also said 'saint' David Beckham encouraged men to grow facial hair Clergymen should grow beards to emphasise their holiness to Muslims, the Bishop of London has suggested. Rt Reverend Richard Chartres said the modern fashion for facial hair should not be the preserve of hispters, but would also be likely to impress those from Eastern cultures where wearing a beard could...
  • Britain is no longer a Christian country and should stop acting as if it is, says judge

    Telegraph ^ | December 7, 2015 | John Bingham and Steven Swinford
    Britain is no longer a Christian country and should stop acting as if it is, a major inquiry into the place of religion in modern society has concluded, provoking a furious backlash from ministers and the Church of England. A two-year commission, chaired by the former senior judge Baroness Butler-Sloss and involving leading religious leaders from all faiths, calls for public life in Britain to be systematically de-Christianised. It says that the decline of churchgoing and the rise of Islam and other faiths mean a "new settlement" is needed for religion in the UK, giving more official influence to non-religious...

    Warnings that Government's counter-extremism plan could lead to inspections on thousands of church youth groups and turn Ofsted into a 'state regulator of religion'Ofsted inspectors could be sent into Sunday schools, church youth groups, Scout troops and even bell ringing circles to search for signs of children being "radicalised" under new counter-extremism plans, church leaders and voluntary groups fear. The proposals, backed by David Cameron, could lead to thousands of "out-of-school education settings" having to be formally registered for the first time and facing inspections to judge whether they are promoting so-called "British values". Christian groups said the proposals, outlined...

    An immigrant father who whipped his children with an electrical cable and threatened to stab them has been spared jail because he told the court he didn’t know his actions were illegal in Britain. One boy was left scared and bleeding. The case is likely to have been influenced by the legal precedent established in June, when a high court judge ruled that Immigrants should be allowed to “slap and hit” their children because of a “different cultural context.”The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, originally from The Gambia in West Africa, used an electrical cable with the...

    Not only do recent revelations concerning the endemic sexual grooming of British girls by Muslim men demonstrate how crippling political correctness is, but they show how political correctness complements the most abusive elements of Islamic law, or Sharia. According to a June 24 report by the Birmingham Mail, as far back as March 2010, West Midlands Police knew that Muslim grooming gangs “were targeting children outside schools across the city—but failed to make the threat public.”

    TAUNTON, UK – A street preacher in the UK who is charged with making “homophobic” and “Islamophobic” remarks has just completed a two-day trial and awaits a verdict on whether or not biblical speech about the issues is considered a crime in the country.

He is now facing two charges of using threatening and abusive words and a charge of causing racially or religiously aggravated harassment, alarm or distress under the Public Order Act. A police...

The gesture would be a ‘creative act of accommodation’ to make Muslims feel ‘embraced’ by the nation, Lord Harries of Pentregarth said.

    A park in the United Kingdom has banned adults from going there unattended. That is, adults cannot go to Puxton Park by themselves. Why would they do this? Because, according to the park, unattended adults are very likely to be a pedophile. Matthew Richards, who is married, was unaware of this rule when he took a 25-mile drive to go to the park. Richards, a bird-watching enthusiast, went to see a falconry display at the park. When he arrived, he was told he could not enter “on child protection grounds.” Richards was taken aback. “I was frankly amazed. I was...

    A British pensioner who quipped "I'm not a Muslim" when asked to remove his shoes at airport security spent more than six months with a criminal charge of racism hanging over him, before the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case just one day before it was due in court. Paul Griffith, who was flying from Stansted Airport in Essex, has described the experience as "incredibly stressful", the Daily Mail has reported. Griffith, 75, was on his way to Malaga, Spain, for a week’s holiday when he set off the scanners on his way through security at Stansted Airport earlier this...

    Michael Fallon, the defence secretary, has claimed British towns are being “swamped” by immigrants and their residents are “under siege”, in an escalation of the emotive language being used by Tory ministers calling for a renegotiation of the UK’s relationship with Europe. In terms reminiscent of Margaret Thatcher in the 1970s, he said on Sunday that in some areas of the UK, large numbers of migrant workers and foreign people claiming benefits should be subject to some form of restraint – or risk dominating the local population. “In some areas of the UK, down the east coast, towns do feel...

    An Englishwoman has taken self-love to its ultimate extreme by marrying herself in an "incredibly empowering" ceremony attended by almost 50 of her friends. Grace Gelder married Grace Gelder earlier this year at an "idyllic farmhouse in rural Devon". Her parents were not present - "mainly for logistical reasons" - but, according to an interview in the Guardian, they did send "supportive texts throughout the day." Some of Ms/Mrs/Mr Gelder's friends suggested "in a light-hearted way" that perhaps the exercise was "a bit narcissistic". But she herself decided that she was "completely comfortable" with her "motivations." It helped that she...
