It's Hard to Believe
that Only 100 Years
Ago, Britain had an
Empire Spanning
the Globe...

And Now they've become a nation of Bed Wetting, Pussyfarts.
One needs to look no further than this item.

Piggy banks 'offend UK Muslims'

British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims.
Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here.
Muslims do not eat pork, as Islamic culture deems the pig to be an impure animal.
Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, backed the bank move.
"This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers," he said.

I realize this doesn't reflect how everyone in Great Britain thinks.............. But Damn, it's just so frustrating. This roll over and play nice BS isn't new or unique to the Brits by any means. But one would have thought they'd have learned something from Neville Chamberlains' "Peace in our time" BS in 1939.
