Not quite right, Lugh. Although arrestable in Belfast, Derry and Dublin it's seen as acceptable socially in Glasgow and Leeds and in Manchester it is now compulsory.

This will be the Buddhist priests. You just wait until the bad ones are reincarnated as liberty cap.

And as for that rubbish excuse about licking the face of fundamental Muslims. The Judge might have bought that crap but we ain't.

Ah well then. Ya can't argue with progress...

See, that's where things are different between England and Ireland mate. Liberty caps grow profusely here in Derry and it's an annual outing to pick the lil divils. All of them are devout Buddhists by the way. It's actually quite endearing, seeing them swaying in the breeze, glistening in the morning dew. They're absolutely content and don't even complain when we yank them out of the soil, wrap them in newspaper, dry them on radiators and bung them into teapots. Clearly they know something Zen and have no real worries...

Well, bollocks to democracy then. During the Dispatches debate earlier tonight the chance to see the cartoons that offended Muslims last year was given. People in the audience were asked to vote on whether they should show these cartoons in the studio and to the home audiences. 69% said they were in favour of seeing them.

Then Jon Snow produced a purple envelope from his pocket and read some text that said Channel 4 would not show them because they could cause further offence. Didn't Channel 4 set out in its early days to be the broadcasting station that allowed freedom of speech and courted controversy? What is going on?

Everyone who isn't from the Muslim faith should be very alarmed by this. It's positive discrimination and it's a crime...

My Two Cents

Postby Diesel Engine » Mon Oct 23, 2006 11:00 pm

This has become a huge talking point all over Europe.
In my opinion the women who wear the veil have been indoctrainated, the veil I Believe was used by the Sultan to keep other men from lusting after his Huge hareem of ladies and I suppose that living in a dusty hot and dry climate the veil would offer excellent protection to the wearer from the adverse elements.
But it sends out TOTALY the wrong signals. What a woman wearing a veil is basically saying is that men are so anamilastic and lustful that the sight of a womans face is enough to bring about impure thoughts into our heads and could lead us to commit adultery. I do not believe for one second that anyone seriously considers the face to be an visualy erotic part of the anatomy. (perhaps if its eating a flake but that a whole diferent kettle of onions)
If we bring the veil wearing to its extreme conclusion then imagine a world where we were all veiled. We would never really know anyone and sales of foundation lipgloss and rouge would plummet.
A typical coversation from such times

"you know wee sammy?"
"naw"
"sure you do, wears the blue veil with the orange trim"
"Oh... yeah that sammy, what about him?"
"He got his hair cut, I think"
"did he now, the little devil"
