In keeping with its austere image, Nanny's Inland Revenue have banned staff from being involved this Christmas with Samaritan's Purse; the controversial Christian charity whose founder, Billy Graham, in response to 9/11 described Islam as "a very evil and wicked religion".
An internal memo tells staff that they cannot continue to be associated with the charity; because its operations do not conform to diversity policies, and might bring the Revenue into disrepute.
However, very generously, the Revenue do allow their staff to donate to the charity in their own time!
The Revenue's 100,000 employees have supported Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan's Purse, since the late 1990s.
Christmas Child sends over a million shoe boxes from Britain to children in countries including Azerbaijan, Armenia, Romania, Serbia, Sudan and Mozambique.
Donors are asked to pack boxes with gifts.
No Christian literature is included in the boxes. However, the charity does separately distribute Christmas stories from the Bible and encourages Bible study in areas where it gives toys out.
A spokesman for the Inland Revenue said:
"We have very clear workplace policies regarding the importance of valuing difference.
When an organisation demonstrates evidence of being at odds with those core values we cannot make special provision for that organisation to be supported on our premises.
To do so would be hypocritical and at odds with our diversity commitments."
The Church of England noted that:
"It does seem a strange way of promoting diversity.
If this charity was aiming to do a heavy conversion job on vulnerable children, that could be criticised. But the shoe box operation is another thing entirely."
Steve Whaley, of Samaritan's Purse, said donors to the shoe box scheme were warned that boxes must not include "anything of a political, racial or religious nature".
As ever, in order to promote her narrow view of "correctness", Nanny ensures that others suffer.
