/Golfclap For Tell MAMA...

A formal complaint about the incident, obtained by The Independent, alleged that the teacher had “expressed his desire to purchase t-shirts with cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad as a way to challenge Muslims who are offended”.
The report said the teenager, whose parents have asked that he remain anonymous, was the sole Muslim in his class and had felt “unfairly targeted and belittled” by the discussion.
I don't think it's going to be too difficult to identify him from these details...

But when you're pushing an agenda omelette, you can't do it without breaking a few eggs, eh?

And please note, that an article that includes this footnote should be taken with an entire salt mine, not just a pinch:
Tesco attack
A young Asian dentist was attacked by a knife-wielding assailant at a Tesco supermarket in Mold, Wales. Police said they were treating the assault as racially motivated. A 25-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder.
Booooo! Nasty white supremacists going around knifing people because they are musl...

Wait. What?
There’s just one catch: Zack Davies is a Muslim who calls himself Zak Ali, and who warned on his Facebook page on the morning of his attack in Tesco: “The wrath of Allah is about to come down upon the kaffir, I will have my revenge.”
Oh. Umm....

Then She Lied. Isn't That Misconduct?

"The police officer told me there was nothing she could do because it was a dog on dog attack," she said.
Well, she was lying to you. Pity you don't let us know her name.
"Even though the warden said they had never seen such horrific injuries and asked for photos, he later told me the case was closed."
I'd really like to know his name too. Because I bet they crop up again.
A police spokesman said: "An investigation is ongoing and we are trying to identify the owner of the animal that bit the victim's dog. We will able to assess whether any offences have been committed under the Dangerous Dogs Act."
Loosely translated, this means: "Oh, damn! She went to the papers! OKm churn out some boilerplate stuff so it looks like we're doing something.."
A spokesman for the council said it was a police matter.
They must share the same PR staff,

You’d Have To Have A Heart Of Stone…

…luckily, I do!
Chairman Francis Barnes- Challinor, who has pledged to continue the service, said the not-for-profit organisation is desperately applying for grants to pay off its debts, but believes the authorities which direct people to the foodbank should support it.
Why? Is it their fault you’re an idiot, then? That you set up a non-for-profit and assumed that meant you wouldn’t have to pay any bills?
“The volunteers are very disappointed, of course. We have been here nearly a year.
“We didn’t think we would get into this financial state when we took the premises. We thought people would help us to pay the rent.
“At the moment, we deliver a lot of parcels to certain points such as probation, the council, the churches, or a lot of them used to help us by coming here.
“But they don’t offer any financial help or any volunteers.”
Well, why should they? You’ve taken away a burden so they are happy to see you shoulder it. They bear no responsibility for your plight. That falls to you.
The organisation is also hoping to offer courses, including cookery and management skills, in a bid to generate funds for any future rent.
Hmmm, I wonder if that will include financial management..?

"What Do We Want?" "Immortal Lesbians!"

"When do we want them..?"


Make up your minds, progressives!

Speelchik Would Have Sorted This Out, Tesco..!

No need to thank me. Every little helps!

"I Talk To The Trees..."

....and they say 'Suffer, bitch!':
“I don’t want to move out because I’ve got beautiful neighbours. This place feels like home to me.”
Aggie Dabska's problem?
Aggie Dabska, 34, said her chronic fear of spiders has stopped her opening any of the windows facing the dreaded tree outside her Cardiff home.
And if the spiders in the tree weren’t bad enough, Aggie said the tree has also stopped light entering her eight-year-old son’s bedroom and has blocked her phone signal at her home in of Plymouth Wood Close in Ely.
Maybe it's an Ent, and it's really, really mad at you?
“After I posted a note online, someone came and hacked off some of the branches so it is a bit better now, but no one ever calls me about it.”
Who do you think should call you?
Ely Councillor Sue Goddard said: “We don’t have a letter from Ms Dabska on record, but now that we are aware of this we will see what we can do. However it is unlikely that the council would cut down the tree as it is their policy not to cut down healthy trees.
“As it happens we have been trying to get some other trees pruned for about five years on Plymouth Wood Close, and so we will be adding her concerns to a letter we are addressing to the council’s parks department.”
Ah, yes, it takes five years to get trees pruned. Truly, the local councils are typical agents of the State!

Sunday Funnies...

All The Training In The World…

…won’t stop someone doing something stupid:
Natalie Rivans was shopping with her girlfriend Helen Embleton at Tesco Extra in Surrey Quays when a cashier who had served a pregnant lesbian couple in front of them apparently said homosexuality was "wrong" and "all gay people should die alone". When Ms Rivans challenged the worker after the incident on January 3, she allegedly responded: "It's a free country so I can say what I like".
The couple, both 30, then complained to the store manager. Tesco today confirmed an internal investigation had been launched and the cashier has since faced a disciplinary hearing.
So, all’s well that ends well, right?
Ms Rivans, who lives with her partner in Deptford, said they were "mortified" by the abuse and had demanded a full apology from Tesco. She said: "It is not something I have ever come across in London before. I am really disgusted.
"We were absolutely mortified. Tesco need to change their policy and procedures."
Eh..? Why? What did they do that encouraged this?
Ms Embleton, who works for the NHS, said: "I was just surprised at [the cashier's] audacity. She was not bothered that she had offended her in the slightest. She was so blasé when she said it was a "free country". I have not been out for long so have not experienced homophobia. It is just not acceptable in this day and age."
Did Tesco somehow lead this cashier to believe that it would be acceptable, then? Do you have proof of this?
Simon Feeke, spokesman for gay rights charity Stonewall, urged Tesco to review its training guidelines following the incident.
Why, do they have an ‘Insulting The Customer’ course, or something?
"Through our Diversity Champions programme we have worked with Tesco to ensure they have policies and procedures to deal with incidences like this.
"We’re encouraging Tesco to review their current training provision and make sure they follow our latest guidance on staff training on fair treatment and respect for gay colleagues and customers.
"In modern Britain businesses should welcome all customers. It’s not just the right thing to do, it’s basic business sense."
Ah, right, so really, what this is about is you seeking to use this incident to justify your own continued existence?
A Tesco spokeswoman said it had apologised to the couple and was now formally investigating the complaint. "We work hard to make sure that everyone is welcome at Tesco and put great emphasis on celebrating diversity and ensuring that we are an inclusive place to work and shop.
"Any remarks or actions from our colleagues which are not in line with these beliefs are not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”
I fail to see what more Tesco can do, frankly. If an employee takes it into their head to breach all the guidelines, there’s nothing to stop them. All Tesco can do is discipline them afterwards. Which they have.

Case closed.

Maybe That's Exactly What Is Needed..?

The education secretary, Nicky Morgan, has come under fire from lawyers who claim her latest guidance could result in more children being expelled from school.
Yes. And..?
Just for Kids Law has challenged Morgan’s proposals to lower the expulsion threshold. Under new statutory guidance, headteachers can remove a child from class if their conduct is deemed detrimental to the education or welfare of others in the class.
The previous threshold required schools to establish that serious harm was being caused to others.
There follows the usual old flannel you'd expect, from luminaries such as Lorraine Schofield, headteacher of Wootton primary school in Northampton and Robert Campbell, principal of Impington Village College.

All bewailing the effect this will have on the poor lambs disrupting every other kid's education. Because they *sob* are victims!

And then we have this:
For too long we’ve always considered behaviour in relation to the interests of the one pupil in the class, rather than the other 29 whose learning has been affected.
I applaud the secretary of state’s response which gives schools the opportunity to ensure that behaviour can be challenged and dealt with robustly.
Of course certain lawyers will make money from such a legal challenge. Of course there are situations like the “cheddars” [when a boy was excluded for taking mini cheddars to school] one that are disproportionate. But for far too long the pendulum has swung in favour of the perpetrators rather than the majority.
Sadly, the person who said this is listed as 'anonymous'. Doesn't that say a lot about how far the progressive rot has spread?

The 'Guardian' Commentariat, Anti Science? Never!

There’s a chill in the air, the usual coughs and colds have started to make the rounds, the scarves are out and the idea of salad for lunch is a long-distant memory. Celebrate all ye lovers of the warming and fulfilling lunch: it’s full-blown soup season.
 Mmmm, soup! And a 'Guardian' article surely free of controversy?
Chicken soup is one of the obvious infusions for the peely-wally. “It’s so good,” says Ogus. “Growing up in a Jewish family, your grandmother’s and your mother’s chicken soup was this mysterious wonderful thing. We love it, although we don’t know why it’s so good.” The secret to good chicken soup is fiercely guarded, and everyone has their own version. Traditionally, it’s a fixture starting Friday night’s dinner in Jewish households. “It has a smell that gives me a hit of nostalgia and makes me feel instantly comforted,” says Ogus. There’s more to it than nostalgia, though. Broths made from bones are a good source of amino acids. “You boil off the impurities to make something delicious, and there’s something satisfying about making things out of bones and gristle.”
Someone more churlish than me might ask where all the classic British soups are, like Scotch broth, pea and ham, cockaleekie, etc.

But that would be wrong! This is an article mercifully free of such...


Scientists! What have they ever done for us?
