Prats of The Week - Croydon Council Again!

Prats of The WeekI 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!

Here's David Cameron's email to tell him what you think:

  1. It's well known that Tories in local government don't practice what their national spokesmen preach – hence their enthusiastic involvement in so-called "safety camera partnerships". And aren't the Tories the governing party in Brighton which tried to ban patio heaters?

  2. The future of swimming pools in Britain is "Special Sessions" that cater for all.
    Nudist sessions where we can all go skinny dipping.
    Speedo sessions for those with a Linford Christie lunchbox.
    Alton Towers sessions where speedos are banned.
    Childrens sessions where kids can learn to swim while chewing on an 8lb salted ham.
    Peedo sessios where old ladies can photograph the above.
    Re sessions where the pool is closed down and the jobsworth lifeguards laid off.
    Harriet Harman sessions. (Women only).

    And now, to celebrate diversity and inclusion in multiculturalist Britain - Muslim only sessions. And the swimsuit of choice, the burkini.
    I shit you not! Get yours today:

    Taxpayers sue the council for not allowing use of a facillity you have paid for. Try and set up a Christian only swim hour with everyone having to wear a cross and chain and see how far you get.

    More arse licking to the 'religion of peace.'

  4. As I have said on here before; It is not the political colour of the councillors that dictate such stupid policies, it is the officers employed by them.....This situatiuon will not change until we challenge would be councillors to explain why they allow the officers to make such policy.

    Ken you are of course correct; This type of policy will do nothing to help integration in this country but, for people to integrate, first they need to want to. If your culture and religion tells you, virtually from birth, that the western culture and political system is evil, there is no way you will want to integrate into it is there?

    'More arse licking to the 'religion of peace.'

    It's more than that. The Muslims have an 'evangelistic' (for want of a better expression) process called Da'Wa (Dar al-Dawa).

    Basically, in a non-muslim country, they seek to Islamify that countrys' institutions, little by little.

    The multicultural pandering that goes on in this country makes it very easy for them to do this.

    Our local council received 'guidance' from a muslim 'charity' on how NHS staff should treat deceased Muslims (ultimately to be compliant with Sharia law).

    Further investigation by one of the councillors revealed that the directors of said charity had been convicted of offences relating to the raising of funds for Islamic terrorist organisations in the US.

    You might not be religious, but your taxes are being used to effect very religious agendas.

    And don't be fooled into notions of integration. The muslim world has two predominant views of the world:

    Dar al-Islam (House of peace) - applied to countries where Muslim law is in force.

    Dar al-Kufr (House of unbelief) - effectively used to describe countries run by non-muslims.

    Integration is only acceptable when it is integration into Islam.

    Anon, agreed. The biggest threat to our entire way of life is islam and its lickspittle apologists in what passes for our 'government.'

    If Muslims can't stand the sight of normal Speedo-clad English males the solution is in their own hands: build their own private facilities at their mosques. They have the money to do it and then they can wrap themselves up as much as they like. Don't Muslims know the meaning of "when in Rome do as the Romans do?" We had something like this in the Dark Ages when the Christian Church banned swimming on grounds of nudity.

    Me? neo-Pagan and proud of it.

  8. Lord of Atlantis2:36 PM

    I am not a Muslim, and have no wish whatsoever to become one, so why the hell should I only be allowed to wear swimwear that meets with their approval? As Tonk stated, this sort of thing does nothing for integration. If this country is so evil (a country whose leaders have welcomed many of this faith into this land with open arms,by the way) why do we have so many asylum seekers, refugees, illegal immigrants not to mention out and out criminals continually coming to this country who are of this faith? If we are so wicked why don't they choose an Islamic country, where they can live by Sharia law to their heart's content? I think that Disgusted, Tunbridge Well's suggestion is spot on.

    Disgusted Tunbridge Wells said:
    "We had something like this in the Dark Ages when the Christian Church banned swimming on grounds of nudity."

    If certain Islamists have their way, this country will return to the Dark Ages! I cannot see how some of the demands of Islamists can exist with the human rights act?

  10. These swim sessions are not just for Muslims but for anyone who for whatever reason does not wish to wear the standard speedo type of costumes. Embarrassing tattoo, nasty operation scar, fat belly!!!

  11. Can someone who lives in the area pop along with a video camera and record the jobsworths as they turn you away with your British swimming costume?

    You'll have to make that a wearable camera as they'll no doubt have some rules against taking snaps.

  12. Oops! I posted the wrong link.

    Wearable cameras.
