    Caving even further to Islam. Can you imagine if your wife or daughter was forced to dress like a Muslim in order to swim?

    I knew it was getting bad out there, but it's still a nasty shock to read stuff like this. Civilization is truly doomed. :(
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    As the former late Great Britain swirls down the drain into the cesspool of defunct,irrelevant History .

    There but for the courage of Patriotic Americans are we destined to follow.P.C. Socialism and Islam are indeed malignant Cancers that corrupt all they touch .

    France is starting to force the issue with these infestations of Militant Islam by pushing back against the Muslim waves.And the rest of Europe had better follow suit before they are totally engulfed.

    Spain and Holland are especially in danger .I fear it is much too late for the late great U.K.

    The Islamic/PC cancers are too deep and enmesh into the entire Social/
    Political fabric of the former Kingdom to be safely removed .

    Are there any Brits that post on here that can give us a realistic picture untainted by the news media?

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Sometimes I do and it gets roundly ignored if it goes against the 'muslims are taking over!!!11!!ELEVENTY' meme, so I've largely given up.

    Sure this is wrong but the article references six facilities (5 in England and 1 in Scotland). Croydon seems to be the worst offender in that it sets aside 3 hours a week under these rules; S****horpe has one session. Glasgow has one session which is time devoted to a swimming club - depending on the size of the pool complex this may mean that the facility is not generally available during the club time but that would be the case for any closed group who had hired the facility. The 'state schools' presumably hire out their pool in the same way as they hire out other space for various events (and quite a few churches hold services in school halls) to anyone who wishes to pay the going rate. The Clissold pool which is at the end of the article was an instance of a low level employee misapplying the rules last year (for which apologies were later given). If you read the article you will see that the condemnation comes from left wing Labour MP's and the director of the Centre for Social Cohesion (not exactly a hard right organisation).

    No one's pretending that radical Islam isn't a problem but it is a multi-faceted problem which has implications in many directions.
    The muslim population of the Uk is about 3% as a percentage of the population.
