Easter has come and gone and much like Easter being a regular event, Nanny has come up with a seasonal banning order just right for the occasion.
Nanny's twats running Poole Hospital Dorset banned staff from handing out hot cross buns over the Easter period.
Nanny feels this might upset non-Christians.
Few points here:
1 So farking what?
2 Easter is a Christian festival, as far as I was aware Britain is still a secular Christian country?
3 Non Christians can hand out whatever they want during their festivals, so why can't Christians?
4 This is insulting to non Christians, as it implies they are small minded bigots; and is guaranteed to make them feel isolated and threatened.
The catering staff at the hospital sent an email in disgust to their local paper on Good Friday.
"We the kitchen staff of Poole Hospital
were disgusted to find that the patients
were not getting hot cross buns this morning.
The manager of the catering department said
he was worried about the ethnic minorities that work here."
Another point here..."ethnic minorities" can be Christians too...it's not the preserve of the white middle classes. Indeed, on the converse, I could be a practising satanist for that matter.
The twats running the hospital gave in, eventually, and buns were distributed on Easter Monday.
Poole Hospital NHS Trust claims that the delay in buns delivery was due to an oversight:
"We do apologise to patients who missed out
on their hot cross buns on Good Friday.
This was due to an oversight by the catering manager
who forgot to order them in time.
It was nothing to do with religious beliefs.
The buns were handed out on Easter Monday instead."
Well that's plausible, isn't it?
