‘Muslim dinners for church kids’

“Pupils at a Church of England school are only able to eat Muslim meals because of a council ruling. The only meat on the menu at the primary school is halal – where animals are controversially bled to death. Children have been eating the meat for up to SEVENTEEN years at FOUR schools in Reading, Berkshire, without parents’ knowledge, the council admitted yesterday. The fact emerged after pupils were given letters from canteen managers to take home. Islamic law insists on halal meat, produced by slashing an animal’s neck with a single cut. Animals are not stunned beforehand. Parents are furious at the revelation.”

Stand by for the BNP to pick up on this story as an example of the so-called “Islamicisation of Britain”.
