Thank you for your letter dated 3rd September 2002.
Mr. Prescott has asked me to write to you regarding
your claims of discrimination. After making enquiries
I believe you are a citizen of the United Kingdom and
have a native ethnicity.
I shall attempt to answer your comments. Firstly, I
assume you are referring to the Census form that has
no facility for stating English nationality. This is
because there is no such nationality as English as
laid down by various acts of Parliament and accession.
Persons born in the United Kingdom are citizens of the
United Kingdom and are therefore British/English.
Secondly, you state that your children are unable to
practice their religion at school. Since 1989, all
non-denominational schools in the United Kingdom have
had the right to Christian assembly removed. This was
because it was felt to be insensitive to the needs of
ethnic minorities being forced to practice a creed
different to their own. There is however, no reason
you cannot attend church services of your own
denomination in your own time.
Lastly you are complaining that you cannot celebrate
your patron saint's day without punitive financial
penalties being imposed. Again, there is no reason
preventing you from celebrating in your own time as
long as your celebrations are kept within legal
restraints and do not interfere with the sensitivities
of any ethnic minority.
I trust this letter answers your queries.
PP Rt Hon John Prescott.
This is they very BS pushed by the PC left that is giving racism so much fuel to thier fires. If Ethnic minorities are so friggin offended by local holidays and customs, they are in the worng country and need to go elsewhere.
If I went to india and got all pissy because people publically celebrated thier Hindu festivals and worshipped thier gods publically, what would that make me? if I went to japan and screamed how all those shinto shrines pissed me off and offended me, what would they do?
This is what I mean, suppressed national holidays, cultural things, celebrations, religions. if people immigrate to a country, they had better learn to accfept and adapt to the local flavor and customs, and if they find it all so offensive, then go the hell back home.
I was in Saudi Arabia, not of my own sole choice, and found the whole Ramadan to be offensive, but you didnt here me complain, I simply kept quiet and let them do thier own religious thing, its thier country, after all.
