Banned - Kids Singing Carols

Via Nanny Knows Best comes news of the outrage that is the Corringham Winter Festival.

I suppose we should have suspected something when it was labelled a "Winter Festival" - that's usually the sign of something that's been hijacked by politically-motivated morons intent on preventing the indigenous population from expressing themselves.

Sure enough, the organisers prevented a group of primary school children from singing Christmas carols, on the basis that they would not have "dovetailed" into the theme of the festival. Which, roughly translated, means they would have relayed a vaguely Christian message and carried the risk of offending others.

Which is tosh, of course. Speaking as a stauch athiest, I can confidently say that no one gives a monkey's about a few kids singing traditional hymns at Christmas; no one's offended by the idea of Christianity popping its head up from time-to-time. It is a representation of this country's traditional values and we should tell anyone who doesn't like it that they're always welcome to go somewhere else.

A Conservative councillor Danny Nicklen is reported as saying "This is nothing more than political correctness gone mad." But it is. It's a great deal more than that. It is part of the systematic denuding of this country's heritage and core values by a political elite obsessed with destroying our very identity.

According to local press reports some of the carols banned included Once in Royal David's City, Silent Night and Gabriel's Message.

OK, so you couldn't hear them at the Corringham Winter Festival. But you can listen to them here.

Hi Womble

O.T. After being in the house for 48 hours Chino the press officer has been renamed Boris. He has a fantastic happy, bouncy personality that has made everybody smile today.

Big Boris has been standing up against the Christmas spoiler brigade, all credit to him.
