I see that Croydon Council (where I used to live) have distinguished themselves again, and have again won my coveted and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Award.
Well done lads!
For why have they won it this time?, I hear you ejaculate (Can I say ejaculate?).
Croydon council runs separate one-and-a half-hour swimming sessions for Muslim men and women every Saturday and Sunday at the Thornton Heath Leisure Centre (I touched on this issue in 2006 when Croydon denied - lied - such swimming sessions took place).
Swimmers have been told, via the centre's website, that "during special Muslim sessions male costumes must cover the body from the navel to the knee and females must be covered from the neck to the ankles and wrists".
Quite how the council thinks that this helps Muslims integrate into a non Muslim society, and bond with non Muslims I don't know.
Now here's where the council dig themselves further into a hole (you will recall they did the same thing in 2006, when they denied - lied - that there were Muslim only swimming sessions). A press officer at Croydon council claimed that the wording on the website was a mistake, and the dress code should be regarded as a suggestion rather than a requirement.
How stupid do these twats in the council think we are?
Needless to say, in a desperate attempt to airbrush history, the council changed the website to remove the reference to the dress code.
Except for one small problem.
Can you guess what that is children?
Yes, that's right, it is still policy to require a dress code. An official at the leisure centre said that the dress code remained compulsory.
My understanding of basic Tory philosophy is that:
- It does not endorse segregation or divisive policies
- It believes in one nation politics that serves the interests of a cohesive unified nation
- It believes in "small" government
- It believes in honesty
Croydon council have failed in all respects of the above
BTW, they are Tory!
Croydon Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
