I'm normally pretty relaxed as to what people wear but I see Muslim women wearing the full black garb right up to the eyeballs and I shudder. I've a healthy disregard of organised religions of all hues so I'm not just picking on Muslims. Some of the rules regarding other religions are equally foolish to me. The more extreme brands of the Jewish religion also seems to have some wacky ideas.

It's our custom and tradition to be a multicultural, and liberal society where people have the choice to wear the burka or not. 

No it isn't. It's traditional to be a Christian country and it's being changed largely without our consent.

CNN is now labeling President Trump's choice for National Security Advisor as brilliant and inspired.  

Not too bad for a president that many here have incorrectly opined is an dangerous idiot

What, that he's made one decent decision?  Wow.  And it's probably not even his - more likely Bannon or someone else.  The first comment below the article is probably right on the money:

" I hope nobody actually thinks that trump found McMaster through his own efforts and expertise. He has gotten most of his nominees from The Heritage Foundation, i.e. Jim DeMint. DeMint and trump have one thing in common: they both have hated Barack Obama for the last decade. So the criteria for every appointee, especially the SCOTUS nominee, has been that he would help undo everything that the Obama administration did, whether it was good for the country or not. Donald trump doesn't do homework. He doesn't do the work of educating himself about what these positions require, much less who would be best suited to hold them. He has no idea what the role of National Security Advisor is supposed to be, so how could he possibly judge who would be right for that job? McMaster was NOT a "brilliant choice". It was purely serendipitous. A broken watch is correct twice a day. "

Not saying I agree with the thesis; but I've heard people venture out that multi-culturalism has been a sort of replacement religion for Christianity among the Western Left. Multi-Culturalism really is a sort of religion in itself, imho, the left has their own belief system they push. They side with Islam often.

Not to me it isn't. I've never heard that line of thought before. If I have a religion I'd say it was Socialism. Islam is just another crazy religion only more extreme than most other crazy religions.

Well, Atheism, Socialism (Communism) have killed millions more than Christianity has but we were told not to discuss religion on this forum since one was being frowned on in particular.

Go ahead and take gratuitous slams at religion, we've also heard your views on Israel which sort of ties in. Such hateful talk I think proves a point; lump all religions together.

Just search for "multiculturalism" and "religion" and one finds plenty of references.

Multiculturalism also smacks of communism/socialism I'd say. Christianity is its enemy.

Last I will say on something about religion. Anti-religionists may still get their desire to bow to Mecca, it kept us safe for 2000 years.

You may have a chance to bow 3 times a day yet, Christianity protected us from that, we aren't suppose to talk about religion. Glad we know you've spoke negatively of Israel and you are on your way to lumping all faiths together as leftists do.  Well, your atheism or socialism/communism, sure killed many more than Christianity.

Yeah, right.  I always said scrapping that " Care In The Community " was a big mistake.

Grammar schools get less funding than free schools, surely? There's a reason QEGS has been forced to double its capacity.

They can be both Grammar and Free, both get a a higher spend per head than your normal school - that can't be right. When you consider Grammar schools tend to be located in wealthier areas of towns and cities, these areas also tend to be Tory voting areas, and conversely the schools where attainment is better than average - ie not a priority.

I see Martin Sorrell has had a difficult 12 months - pay package down to £41.5m from £70m last year. 

Time for belt-tightening in his household.

On another note, a second Scottish referendum looks increasingly likely - and the betting is the Yes vote will win easily next time.

Rabbit hole in farmer's field leads to 'mystery caves'

An apparently ordinary rabbit's hole in a farmer's field leads to an underground sanctuary said to have been used by devotees of a medieval religious order - but is everything what it seems?

According to local legend, the Caynton Caves, near Shifnal, in Shropshire, were used by followers of the Knights Templar in the 17th Century.

Located less than a metre underground, they appear to be untouched structurally.

Their original purpose is shrouded in mystery, but Historic England, which describes the caves as a "grotto", believes they were probably built in the late 18th or early 19th Century - hundreds of years after the Templar order was dissolved.

Fascinating. they will have to iron out whose caves these were.

Not sure where you get that about the Scottish referendum from. Alex Salmond was on the politics show the other night and admitted that there have been  numerous polls since the last referendum and all but 2 had "remain in the UK" as ahead. Of the 2 that had Scottish independence, it was only by about 1 or 2 %.  That would probably go down as well as brexit.

Anecdotal evidence - which I believe more than polls. Numerous people I've spoken to who voted No last time would vote Yes in the next referendum. They cite the Brexit vote in particular and the presence of another Tory administration in Downing St as the reasons.

If you believe in polls the latest IpsosMori poll as of today March 9 shows split right down the middle.

https://www.ipsos-mori.com/researchpublications/researcharchive/3854/Support-for-independence-rises-as-referendum-speculation-grows.aspx

All I'm saying is the Scots I know and through other people who voted No last time have changed their minds.

But thanks for the childish response.

That comes after a very good day here in Korea. President Park, daughter of a former military dictator, has been successfully impeached. A big win for a democracy that is less than 30 years old.
