    This makes perfect sense. When I worked in retail I always used to refuse to serve women who were menstruating as they were unclean.


    Far too much time would be lost with staff ritually purifying themselves if they were forced to handle/sell pork and alcohol.

    M&S choice... if they want to appease a bunch of kiddy fiddling worshipers thats their call, as long as it doesn't infringe on my rights and if it comes to it I can shop elsewhere (although only use M&S for collared shirts and socks...)

    Utter fucking joke.

    Its the courts in this lands fault, after the two muslim chappies won that tribunal at tesco about not having a prayer room for an "undisclosed sum" all the retailers are shitting themselves.

    Work is a place where you work, not where you worship, the clue is in the fucking spelling.

    Now i'm purposefully targetting asian gay pakiz cashiers in m&s with bacon and cider, just to make a point, if the job doesn't fit your religious or cultural stance you should not work there.

    M&S apologises. Used to work for them a few years ago and nothing like this was in place then. We had a guy who would refuse to date check the 'blood meats' but he never refused to serve anyone on the till, this whole thing is Dail Mail hype.

    Why is this even a big deal

    Anyone hear about the 4 white folk that tortured and killed a British soldier?

    Bet you haven't, because they weren't 'Muslim'

    Hyper-sensationalism or what

    And you fools fall for it

    Karnage, me not getting a job in a halal butchers cus' i'm a white non-believer is testiment to the intelligence and sensible nature of the muslims running the shop.

    A muslim person actively accepting a job at an establishment that sells pork and alcohol, then crying about it is a complete joke.

    Its got fuck all to do with whos killing who and why, its just a massive spasticity and cancery clusterfuck on behalf of the company that even entertained the idea.

    Its not that deep bro.

    Fucking no i can't tewky.

    The same reason why i can't go into a shop in islamabad and order a bacon sarnie and a beer.

    Because pakistan is a predominantly muslim country and i abide by/respect their laws and beliefs.

    I have no time for ANY religion just to make it clear, but anyone pushing any agenda be it political or religious where the general consensus/indigonous population of the country doesn't support or agree with it, is a joke.

    But talk to Willard, he can eat all the bacon he wants, hell I once saw a photo of his at a Brunch or whatever they do out there, no shit, Bacon Infused Vodka Bloody Mary with a rasher sticking out of it. No-one seemed to get outraged at him.
    Islamabad aint Croydon is it? We actively sought out these people to come live here way back when, its not like Karachi is a hotbed of English Restuarants is it? I dont think the comparison is a fair one tbh.
    Saying this tho, we should be allowed to get on with our way of life, unhindered, Merry Christams all that shit, and we shouldnt feel bad about it, not in the slightest, live and let live, dont be a cunt!
    Thinking though, I can just see the tin stacking jobs and other jobs that dont involve pork or booze getting a rise in the muslim demographic. Dont want to touch the pork, make some bread then? I would hoe a big business like that has enough gumption to be sensible about it.

    Is it just me or does a bacon butty sound like a boss idea right about now?

    Great rhetoric and i fully agree about the history/live n let live.

    But the truest thing you said is "we" as in anybody resident of this country, should be allowed to go about our business by the quintessential basis of "our" laws, not some twisted loophole fuckery of ANY religion trying to bypass them for whatever agenda.
