Many papers are carrying the report that a Labour think tank had a rush of blood to the head and has made a few recommendations to improve race relations in the UK. The Daily Wail has grasped the "downgrading" of Christmas as its headline. Other measures quoted include: â€¢ "Birth ceremonies", at which state and parents agree to "work in partnership" to bring up children â€¢ Action to "ensure access" for ethnic minorities to "largely white" countryside â€¢ An overhaul of Britain's "imperial" honours system â€¢ Bishops being thrown out of the House of Lords â€¢ An end to "sectarian" religious education â€¢ Flying flags other than the Union Jack. In these weird times we live in, I found that I agreed with a few of these. The first one was something that I had when my sprog mas born. I wanted something that brought the family together and, as an atheist, baptism and bris were out. I agree with the third one as the current honours systems (the civvy version, anyway) is a political rewards system. I fully concur with the fourth point, as I've stated in other threads. Ditto the fifth point. The second point is not really helpful, and the last point is, frankly, ridiculous.
