That's possibly something to do with William Wallace sacking of the city way back when.

any attempt to use would certainly fail due to human rights act.


And quite rightly so. However the law is still on The Statute Book.

They tried to prosecute Stephen Fry in Ireland for the same crime.




Police in the Republic of Ireland have dropped a prosecution against British comedian Stephen Fry for blasphemy, local media reported. Only a viewer made a formal complaint against the comedian over comments he made on a TV show in 2015. Garda Síochána reportedly dropped their investigation because there were no injured parties. Fry's remarks on Irish television that God was stupid, selfish and "quite clearly a maniac" sparked controversy about Irish blasphemy laws. Under the Defamation Act, the act is punishable by a fine of 25,000 euro (£21,000) in an offence rooted in the Irish constitutio

Are you missing the connection of the dots?


what does one need top do that

missing the loose screws that once had that are now gone?





London is not a predominately Muslim city nor is the primary religion Islam.


Who cares?




Like I said in my closing...please take a trip to many of the thousands of cities throughout the middle east and play a Christian call to prayer and report back on how well that went for you.


Um you made no mention of Christian anything when you said that in your OP.

are you high or drunk or both?

It's OK to shoot a Welshman with a crossbow if he's inside the city walls after midnight.

Was Jerry Springer The Opera allowed up there? If I remember correctly a lot of English theatres caved into pressure to ban it. Vaguely remember there being a Hindi play being banned following a few riots around 2005ish too.


As far as I recall it was entirely up to individual theatre's.

I looked it up to see if any local councils tried to ban it and found that the guy running the protest in Aberdeen refused to give a reason why he was protesting to the journalist, as he was from a Sunday paper and speaking to him would break the Sabbath. This amused me greatly.

"How on Earth do the Brits tolerate this? I know the vast majority of Brits disapprove."

You know this how, exactly? It's complete bollox, by the way.

" To any patriots from Britain on here who do disapprove do you feel you can openly voice that disapproval without fear of repercussion from your own government or not?"

Yes - of course they can, thank you very much. What is your definition of a "patriot", I wonder?

Well you can always take a mega phone to Speakers Corner (right outside Parliament) and start voicing your concerns...........so yeah, terrible fear of repercussions!

it's a prayer , not the end of the world !
we have call to prayer in Glasgow, the catholics and protestants dont give a # , neither does anyone else

if you are upset by a prayer then you need to have a word wae yersel pal!

the answer to your question is , not that we "tolerate" it , be we openly accept it

LOL...typical leftist response. Are you missing the connection of the dots? London is not a predominately Muslim city nor is the primary religion Islam.

Like I said in my closing...please take a trip to many of the thousands of cities throughout the middle east and play a Christian call to prayer and report back on how well that went for you. Quite a few come to mind where I know you will depart with your head yet the leftist cultural appropriation police here seem to think mixing oil and water in a predominately Christian country are a good thing.



LOL...typical response from someone who experiences life through the internet.

Britain has an established church but...

London is not a predominantly Christian city.

Britain is not a predominantly Christian country.

It's pretty much an open space where different religions are not only tolerated but encouraged.

I realise that might not fit with your world view, but that's what it is. Deal with it.

Why do some people not see the the baby steps that lead to far more than what is happening at the time.
No, at first nothing is wrong to have muslims calling to prayer in the middle of London [England, Europe] because yeah it's apparently a free country [it's not bit that's for some other thread].

But it's not a one off prayer is it?
It is one notch up on the stove where the frog sits in a pot filled with water.
The next notch will also seem ok, so will the next one. Each notch will never look dangerous and yet the heat is going up and eventually little froggy will be cooked and dead.

Are there really such naive people who can never imagine where something will lead to?

History can teach us things. If islam was churning out the best scientists in the world, the most equal womens rights, the most peaceful and free society, guess what I'd pray with them [even though I am an Atheist].
However it's not is it?
Islam has tried over and over to get to Europe. Islam has converted most other countries on the globe.

So let me guess what conclusions you draw from that?

a) isalm justy wants what's best for you?
b) islam is really brilliant?
c) islam spreads at any costs if you want to or not?

I'll go with c) here.
Now with that in mind, back to the London [Emgland, Europe] prayer call...it gives me the creeps because it's not even trying politely any longer. It's here. London has caught islam and the rest of the country isn't feeling too well either for much longer.

No, no, no. He would be immediately thrown in a cell with Tommy Two-Names to rot without trial, probably for just thinking that sort of thing let alone actually saying it out loud or on social media.

Have you not listened to our American friends on ATS telling us what a Socialist Police State we live in? Etc.

Absolutely. I have seen Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and know that Robin's bff was a saracen moor. That's what you mean, right?

People can even write to their MP and ask for the government to debate it in the House of Commons if they so wish, no laws against it but I'm not sure what's patriotic about protesting peace vigils, anti-terrorism and solidarity marches. They're common after attacks be they 9/11, Manchester, Paris, London or the recent one in Christchurch.

So its a slippery slope fallacy with Islam is it ?

it;'s only a matter of time before they call a jihad and sack windsor and claim it for the caliphate
and we hear nightly the sharpening of the executioners scimitar

rotting beheaded corpses of our MP's and MSP's along the walls of Edinburgh and Stirling castle , the same with york etc

trains of slaves owned by the Caliphate march from town to town in Britian mining coal , salt , iron everything the caliphate needs to suppress the infidel and to provide weapons for the caliphate

Shock Horror. Muslims take over Washington National Cathedral. How do you Americans tolerate this?




The first Muslim prayer service ever hosted at Washington's National Cathedral, a landmark Christian church in the US capital, was interrupted on Friday by a lone anti-Islamic protester and drew criticism from leading conservative spokesman Rev Franklin Graham.


www.christiantoday.com...

This is just as ridiculous as your post.

I see nothing wrong with this what so ever. Maybe if different faiths learnt to get on with each other, then the world may become a better place.

Well done Washington National Cathedral.

Now with that in mind, back to the London [Emgland, Europe] prayer call...it gives me the creeps because it's not even trying politely any longer.


That creepy sinister Muslim menace in full:

Trafalgar Square Vigil for NZ Victims





Prayers were led by representatives of the three Monotheistic Religions: Islam, Judaism and Christianity. I was surprised in the Iman's prayer by the similarity of the teaching about eternal life to the Catholic one. The Muslim call to prayer echoed round the square and the names of the dead were read out, followed by two minutes silence. We then sang the New Zealand National Anthem. We were invited to sing various songs in Mãori before linking hands as a young Muslim woman read a Peace Poem she had composed. Of course, a New Zealand event wouldn't be complete without the Haka. Kiwis, Brits and others, Muslims, Christians, Jews, people of faith and none, young and not so young, came together both to remember the fallen and injured, but more importantly to show that Love is stronger than Hate.


What a shocker. Guess that message passed you by, then?

It sounds like it was a moving and very beautiful event, if I'd been working down there I would have attended. Sad that some people would rather look to spread hate than compassion.
