The following are quotes from a news story on Yahoo news:
"A row has broken out after a teenager was banned from wearing a crucifix at a school where Sikhs can carry ceremonial daggers.Sam Morris, 16, was reportedly sent home from Sinfin Community School, Derby, after she refused to remove a gold cross on a necklace."
"Other pupils are allowed to wear kirpan daggers and metal bracelets, as they are classed as religious symbols, said the Daily Express."
"Derby City Council said the ban was lawful but questioned whether it was "desirable"."
I don't really need to say anything else do I? Ok, maybe I do... here are my rewrites, reading between the lines:
"A row has broken out after a teenager was banned from wearing a harmless, and now pretty meaningless piece of jewelry where anyone even remotely ethnic can do whatever the hell they want, including carrying around weapons. Sam Morris, 16, was reportedly sent home from Sinfin Community School, Derby, after she refused to fall in line with the idiocy of left wing political correctness gone to Poringland in a cocked hat."
"Other students are allowed to wear deadly weapons and metal bracelets, because spineless jobsworths who haven't been fucked since the 70s are in a position to impose their ludicrous tripe on the public, and want to appear as everyone's friend, as long as they're not white and have common sense, said an utterly un-neutral newspaper."
"Derby City Council did their best impression of a polititian on newsnight and should really grow a backbone."
This is why I left England, in many ways... Christ (Ohh, sorry dahhling.. did I offend anyone?)
