The Daily Mirror has reported that as of yesterday, the canteen in the Parliament will now offer pork. This is a question that came up a long time ago, but why did the Speaker, in the midst of all this controversy, decide to throw more fat on the fire?
Even if there were perfectly good reasons to change the status quo, it is incredibly stupid to have done so now. Unless of course the timing was deliberate, calculated to send a message to the Muslims. Actions speak louder than words and this only serves to support the contention that the on-going campaign has their support.
The Government is very good at words and has succeeded fooling a surprisingly large number of people for a long time. Sooner or later people will have to learn that they need to watch its actions, rather than be seduced by its words.
We seem to be sliding dangerously fast down a very long spiral, wonder where it will end, and who will be next?
