Downgrade Christmas?!!!!!

This is self-cestruction, not something that is done by immigrants. What I see here in Canada is that often these things are decided not by immigrants, but by people affraid to offend. Immigrants, on the contrary, say that they would like the host country to keep its traditions and affirm its identity. And by the way, it's called the Winter Festival, and the tree is The Seasonal Evergreen.

It also wants "national culture" barriers to be torn down to help immigrants settle into the UK.
And I want a pony.

You want to tear the barriers down? Then make sure they can speak English as a condition of entry.

You want to tear the barriers down? Stop them congregating in their own ghettos with a siege mentality and an unwillingness to integrate into wider society. Stop pandering to their every whim, destroying any incentive they have to actually integrate.

I have dealt with this issue very recently, and it leaves mild-mannered man little me , angry and and frustrated, because the sheer arrogance and determination to show unwillingness to integrate in some communities is breathtaking.

Maybe in Canada Mr Fawlty, but in the UK it's a completely different story!

It emerged in 2006 that three out of four employers were not putting up Christmas decorations in the workplace for fear of offending staff of other cultures.
HA hahahahaha...

Even if HMG fcukwits do want to downgrade it, commercialism will keep Christmas safe and well. Screw government policy if there is a buck or two to be made :D

PS Did HMG not agree recently that as a policy, multiculturism had proved a failure and they wanted to move away from that particular ideal? Seems this report goes against that latest reevaluation of vote winning policy (sorry - U turn). Did they not get the memo? :roll:

If it's going to stop PTP getting his Christmas pressies (and remember he has been a good boy this year), he's quite entitled to throw his teddy in the corner. Let him have his pony, I say.

At least, you're still allowed to call it "Christmas". Here, it's the Holidays, or The Festive Season, or The Winter Festival.

By "here" - I assume you meean Birmingham, Bradford, Leicester or the Peoples Republic of Lambeth

I think it maybe important to accept change as not to offend

Lets change these festivals to something else not to offend all the others

Christmas...winter festival .... no presents

Eid-ul-Adha.....er another winter festival..... no slaughtering animals

Holi........Spring festival......no practical jokes ( Human Rights affected )

Judism, Buddism, Sikhism, & alll the other religions


Personally I like them all as they are, and want a good rant at the PC Brigade :pissedoff:

Be kinda nice if they put the religion back into Christmas and got rid of the greed and excess. Then we could get back to being a Christian country and occupy ourselves with some nice little Crusades.

Christmas Decorations? Not see in these parts for two years now, ever since they were deemed (1) a potential fire hazard (2) causing damage to wall finishes (3) made the place look unprofessional.

So which Scrooge-like hate figure introduced these draconian rules then?

Me :twisted:

Personal view is that these days Christmas is for the benefit of children, the feeble minded but mostly the retail sector.

Want to make it a low key Religious/family festival rather than the secular and commercial horror it has become? Fine by me.

Just do the same for for the rest on this list please:

This is typical of the white reactionary attitude that would come from one of the jackbooted militaristic stooges of the white capitalistic oppressor class, and its insistence that the VICTIMS of thousand of years of white, capitalistic, imperialist, exploitation accept yet more slavery by way of consumerist bondage labelled ‘integrate’.

The white capitalistic oppressor class and its jackbooted militaristic stooges sneeringly refer to the reparations returned to these VICTIMS for thousands of years of white, capitalistic, imperialist, exploitation as welfare when in fact this pittance is only a fraction of what the white race owes the downtrodden rape VICTIM that is our beautiful non-white capitalistic oppressor sisters and brothers.

Right On! Off the Pigs!
