They will be their own undoing, all in the name of PC. I guess the British are not interested in being British anymore.

The Metropolitan Police Force is to drop the crown and cross from its insignia for non-Christian officers because of objections from a Muslim recruit.

What...
In a statement, the Met said it had long "cherished" its association with the Crown. However, its future depended on its "ability to attract and maintain the most talented people and cater for their individual needs and requirements".

Muslims, etc. are all of a sudden the most talented people, and must be catered to? Sounds like codewords for some kind of affirmative action nonsense.

Now if we could just find a way to get the government here to wake up and see past the vote to look at the issue.

That will happen when the "Isalmic Gentlemen" detonate their IND and blast Washington DC off the map. [img]http://www.stopstart.fsnet.co.uk/smilie/sardonic.gif[/img]

Sounds a little like the US. Millions (yes millions) of illegal aliens cross the Rio Grande every year. A few percent are sent home only to swim over again. I don't know about the rest of the country, but Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona look more and more like like Jaurez everyday. Many cities now celebrate Cinco de Mayo (May 5th, a Mexican national holiday). Geese, the cost in welfare, hospital services, classroom space, etc. is STAGGERING! If there countries are SO bad, let them have a revolution like we did 200+ years ago and fix there own problems intead of brining the wimpy butts over here. Edited because racism is dumb

I like this part of the story: Tony Arbour, a Conservative member of the Greater London Authority, said it was political correctness "going mad".

Thats what happens when one swears allegiance to a Queen.
