Pig Brother is watching you

NOVELTY PIG calendars and toys have been banned from Council offices in Dudley, West Midlands, in case they offend Muslim staff.

The ruthless extermination of what are described as “pig-related items” came after a Muslim worker complained about the council distributing pig-shaped stress relievers (yes, I know, I’m losing the plot as well) to staff. Now toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Poo’s pal Piglet have been banished from offices.

Councillor Mahbubur Rahman supported the ban, saying: “It’s a tolerance of other people’s beliefs”. But that’s exactly what it isn’t. A tolerance of other people’s beliefs is Muslims and members of other religious minorities understanding and accepting that they are now citizens of the United Kingdom, where the dominant religion is Christianity. And as Christians have no such problem with “pig-related items”, perhaps the whining busy-bodies ought to respect our beliefs for once, instead of inflicting their intolerance on all who come into contact with them.

Anyway, where would Mrs B be if she wasn’t able to raid my piggy bank in advance of her shopping trips?

I have a deep seated horror of people with unkempt, straggly beards.
Could we get them banned do you think?

Shouldn't we stop all pig farming also... and dairy farming (certain Indian sects deem cows to be sacred).... oh, oh, and all chicken farms (Chickens are worshipped in Kentucky!)

Funny how the Jews have been around in Britain for 350 years or so now without getting too offended by the odd porcine representation here and there...

We are going to become a minority in our own country very soon.

That was my first thought.

Also have this council also banned “cow-related items” to avoid offending hindus?

Certain muslims seem to be trying very hard to turn us all into racists. I guess this is so they can justify their cowardly bombings.

Unfortunately we seem to be the only country on earth who's leaders care more for foreigners feelings than our own.

Sorry, you can't do that.

Bacon sandwiches were banned in a Royal Mail sorting depot over a year ago.

Totally agree, it is outrageous the interfering nannies of the PC brigade take over in the name of "diversity", "equality", "multiculturalism" or other such bollocks, when in fact anyone coming here should respect our traditions and way of life.

"When in Rome....."

Pass me another bacon sandwich!

or is it a bomber in disguise

Spare a thought for all the Christians in the world being persecuted -- examine their rights in a muslim country is a reliable source of what is happening

Sadly this is why I left thirty years ago when nobody would listen to Enoch Powell. He had it all worked out. If they don't like pigs they shouldn't act like them.

Ex-Pat in exile.

I work for a local council (within the pc realms of social services to be exact) and, like many others, am sick of the way we have to bend backwards to make these people happy. It's absolute rubbish, and I feel as Britains we are being taken advantage of and being made to look like fools.

No more religion please, of any variety. My beliefs (which do not involve religion) do not affect other people, so why should other people's beliefs affect me?

Mmmmm, I like bacon.

What is a pig-shaped stress reliever? Any photos available?
