Money for nothing

Hospitals in England face closure, and yet the Department of Health can find funds for Islamic religious tracts. (Hat tip Verity)

Update 10.15am September 30. The pamphlet referred to in Melanise Phillips' article was produced by the Department of Health and an organisation called Communities in Action. Charles Martel points out in the comments that this organisation is itself funded by the London Borough of Southwark and the Home Office. So this religious tract is actually a joined-up waste of money.

Previously in the cash-strapped NHS.

oh for fucks sake...

Have a read of this

"Community cohesion activities on behalf of the London Borough of Southwark – funding originating from the London Borough of Southwark Directly and from Home Office pilot community cohesion funds. We were commissioned to research and develop a publication entitled “a Mark of Faith” that acted as a practical guide to the daily lives of different Southwark residents who followed various faiths."

so its not just the Department of Health - its the Home Office, and a local council (oh wow - i wonder how council tax payers feel about this?)

in other words its tax-money i.e. Government - sticking its nose into religion.

its got to stop.
The founders of the American Republic had one thing right - for a society to be truely free , government had to stay out of religion.

I wish we in the UK would finally learn this simple rule, but apparently not.

more here:

"Community consultation and project management: Communities in Action has worked with the management team to manage the fund-raising and construction of the £10 million LMC centre in Whitechapel (ERDF, SRB and voluntary funded)"

i wonder how much was "voluntary" and how much was tax money?

i've looked up the acronyms
LMC Whitechapel - London Muslim Centre

ERDF - European Regional Development Fund

SRB - Single Regeneration Budget - funded by the London Development Agency.

And who is making this complaint? None other than the original whinging Jewbag Melanie Philips!

She looks as if she has a cactus stuck up her bottom. Someone please put her out of her misery and give her a good banging.

I thought I remembered this insult. It was leveled at David Aaronovitch. It must be a feature common to anyone who thinks the demonisation of Israel is wrong.

Hang on, I think the demonisation of Israel is wrong!

Let me check my own rear exit.

Well what do you know, there is a cactus stuffed up there!

The moonbats are right.

Does someone with a cactus inserted in his or her anal orifice have a particular look? How does this look differ from someone who has a marrow or a yam in said cavity?

I can only assume that if it is a cactus, the person on the receiving end looks like a "Jewbag"; if it is some other form of insertion, the individual looks like a Gentile. Or something.

Evidently, 'anonymous' is an authority on anal insertions, so we would be better off letting him - and I presume it is a he - to explain.
