Birmingham City Council bans Christmas for fear of offending Muslims

This is a cross-post by Edmund Standing from Harry’s Place

Now that I’ve got your attention…

Being a politically correct, multicultural type, I ventured out to Birmingham today in hope of some inclusive, touchy feely, culturally sensitive, rather-embarrassed-to-be-British Winterval fun. I’ve read the tabloids, so naturally I have a fully informed opinion on the matter and am aware that Birmingham City Council is in the grips of an Islamist conspiracy and is so PC it constantly bends over backwards to eschew any possible connection to British traditions. Sounds ideal!

Unfortunately, things were not as diverse and inclusive as I had expected…

Shortly after arriving at the market, I came across this unashamed example of militant Christocentric bigotry:

At least I could rely on Birmingham City Council to keep things multicultural, though, right? No!

But they wouldn’t dare put on a specifically Christianity-orientated event using public money, of course. Ouch:

Even the bins carried messages grossly insulting to, er, lots of people:

OK, I thought, this is looking pretty bad, but at least there are no porcine products, for they cause particular offence and should naturally be banned from any Council-backed event, in order to better facilitate community relations. But what is this?

And this?

Pretty disgraceful. Thankfully, no alcohol, though. Damn:

Oh, I give in…

Happy Winterval Christmas to HPers of all faiths (and none)!

Effendi adds: And a Happy Eid/Winterval to all Spittoon readers of all and none faiths!

    Oh Jill, the world is just a big confusing place for you, isn’t it? Satire is just another big word for you. Never mind. The Daily Mail writes with just you in mind. You’ll find it comforting.
