Asian Councillor Arguing FOR Christmas traditions

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hallah-flipping-luyah. How aptly put and by someone who supposedly meant to be offended! I hope all other Christmas-killers and pc-bone idlers out there take note as well. Rest Of Article
  2. Just goes to show you eh? Hopefully it'll be a sentiment which will spread to London and all those other PC ridden sh*tholes.
  3. I'm not a great fan of most councillors, but I'd shake this one's hand. Not because I'm an avid Christian or anything like that, but he seems to be making a very unusual stand for common sense in a world that is flooded with crazy PC ideas. A big well done to Councillor Mattu.
  4. It's hardly the most watertight piece of journalism when you highlight a Christian who is in favour of Christmas, albeit he's from Asia!?

    I have yet to see a complaint about Christmas from an immigrant. I have seen plenty of complaints "on their behalf" by white, middle class Grauniad readers.
  6. agreed. Modern Christmas is a European pagan festival to celebrate midwinter and get the punters spending money, with Baby Jesus as an excuse chucked in.

    My local Scumerfield supermarket in London NW1 is largely mulim staffed. I.e. no no staff at Eid or other Muslim festivals. But today they are all putting the Chrimbo stuff out. No one is offended in this part of multi cultural Britian. All the kids in school learn about the different faiths and generally they are an excuse for more parties sweeties etc from different mates.
