When in Rome, or Scotland, or wherever!

Some of the people who run our instititutions should be in an institution. For the criminally insane. We need a place where these buffoons can get some much needed lessons in how to be somebody with common sense, not politically correct nonsense. The latest wheeze is that doctors and health workers have been banned from eating lunch at their desks in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area - in case it offends their Muslim colleagues.
Health chiefs believe the sight of food will upset Muslim workers when they are celebrating the religious festival Ramadan. All nonsense, of course.

What about Lent? Will these priggish penpushers give just as much respect to those giving up chocolate, say, as a lenten discipline. The sight of Mars bars strewn all over a lunch trolley could deeply offend a Christian desperately trying to maintain a 40 day observance. These "health officials" could waste more time drawing up a list of "approved" products that must be kept under lock and key in the canteen. Of course, hot cross buns would out, but then again there is a possibility they might get through as they are now sold all year round.

Haven't we got better things to be thinking about? Such as not wasting millions of NHS pounds through crazy initiatives and definitely not giving the patients life-threatening bugs such as MRSA!
