Scottish Health Board Surrenders to Failed Bomber

Suppose you have actually won a battle. Suppose you were able to thwart an attack by an evil and demented person. Given the circumstances, how can you take this small victory and turn it into a defeat?

Ask the boards of health in Scotland.

DOCTORS and health workers have been banned from eating lunch at their desks - in case it offends their Muslim colleagues.

Health chiefs believe the sight of food will upset Muslim workers when they are celebrating the religious festival Ramadan.

The lunch trolley is also to be wheeled out of bounds as the 30-day fast begins next month.

But staff and politicians branded the move political correctness gone mad and warned that it was a step too far.

Bill Aitken, the Scottish Conservative justice spokesman, said: “This advice, well-meaning as it may be, is total nonsense.

“It is the sort of thing that can stir up resentment rather than result in good relations.”

The new guidance comes in the wake of the failed terror attacks on Glasgow and the death of suspect Kafeel Ahmed, 27.

Health chiefs in Lothian and Glasgow will give all employees time off to pray and to celebrate Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan.

But Greater Glasgow and Clyde as well as Lothian NHS boards also issued the advice, warning workers not to take working lunches, and said all vending machines should be removed from areas where Muslims work.

One senior consultant said: “What next? Are we going to have advice on how to deal with Catholics during Lent?

“This kind of thing does more harm than good.”
It is time for people of the free world to start acting as if they are free instead of pandering to the murderous tantrums of immature bullies.

Why do the evil Islamists blow shit up, set people afire and cut off heads? It is to get people to do exactly the sort of things that the health board is doing here--to get others to bend to their will.

Good job Scotland. Your ancestors would be so proud.
