Double Standards that make me seethe

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. Radio 5live is reporting that a check in worker for BA has been sent home for wearing a cross on a chain, and having the blatant insensitivity to have it outside her kit. They say that religious regalia should not be openly displayed. Then WTF is a hijab then?? Or maybe on of those funky skull caps worn by our jewish friends eh??

    No link.

  2. Quite annoying I agree, does that mean if someone wears something that identifies their religion and it offends then they should remove it? OK maybe some people find turbans offensive, but I bet they won't remove them!

    Another example of how a nation that was once great is slowly going down the pan, not a place for me to settle I'm off abroad!
  3. Thanks for the link. I read it and it made me feel even more cross (see what I did there)

    I fly on a reasonably frequent ocassion and will now be avoiding BA unless absolutely neccessary.
  4. What if you wear a cross and a veil? 8O
  5. She'd be a nun, not a hostie.
