The British Red Cross Society has decided to ban all references to Christmas in its shops and Christmas cards etc. This is from their website: "The truth about Christmas Chief executive Nick Young explains the British Red Cross' religious neutrality policy "The British Red Cross has had a unique neutral role since its foundation in 1870. This is not new. Our neutrality enables us to work effectively in wars, from the Franco-Prussian war then, to the Second World War and more recently in Afghanistan and Iraq. This policy of neutrality saves lives. In war zones, we are entrusted with a unique role - visiting prisoners of war and crossing front lines to tend to the wounded, whichever side they are on. To do this safely and effectively we have to be neutral. This neutrality is our most precious asset. It is as important on the high street as it is in Iraq. We simply cannot put it at risk. That is why, during Christmas and any other religious festivals, we do not feature any overtly religious items, whether in our catalogues, our Christmas cards or on display in our shops." Nick Young is actually Sir Nicholas, but is a bit of a right-on PC leftie, hence 'Nick'. Already leaders of Muslim and Jewish communities have criticised his move (as they did last year), saying that it is PC nonsense. From his spouting above, I have two questions: 1. If it's all so neutral, why do we also have the Red Crescent (muslims) and Red Star of David (jews)? 2. Just how many Coalition PWs did the Red Cross visit in Iraq, and how many Coalition wounded did they treat? The last question is rhetorical, because I know the answer (0). What is the world coming to?
