Quote from the linked article ...

"At M&S, Muslim staff who do not wish to handle alcohol or pork have been told they can politely request that customers choose another till at which to pay."

 

Well I certainly wouldn't be choosing another till unless I'd been made aware before unloading a trolley onto the belt.  I'd leave the whole trolley-load for them to place back on the shelves, fridges etc.  Angry

Indeed, and lets not mention all those corner shops.

Do'h!, I just did. 😃

Muslims in corner shops working for themselves will sell all the alcohol and pork

that they can, but when they work for someone else they can choose not to ?

 

Oh and another thing,  my brother who lives in 'an ethnically diverse' part of the Midlands LOL

has stood at checkouts behind 'ethnics' being served by an 'ethnic' and noticed that not all the

items were being scanned - is that classed as shoplifting or fraud ?  In fact he asked the checkout

girl if she would do the same for him and got a frosty look.....

Re: Ethical Veganism.

The time may not be far off when there is a ban on killing any animal unless you are a vet and even a vet would need to complete lots of paperwork before doing so.....

Shortly followed by the Sun headlines, ‘Man fined for killing a fly’

If you think that’s daft and you are my age think back to when you were at school....if someone told you of all the things taking place today would you have believed any of it ?

Example: Everybody would be working a one or two day week with the rest of the time spent leisurely on hobbies or holidays.

For some the first part may well be true but certainly not the second part

Re: Ethical Veganism.

One thing they did teach me at school that has not changed 'the devil finds work for idle hands to do'.....

 

Another thing is that for many people their job is their identity, and without that anchor they can just drift

and not achieve anything near their full potential...

Re: Ethical Veganism.

Meaning of course we'll all get I to trouble or commit crime, or as Huxley remarked, ".... man's almost infinite appetite for distractions". 

Well I can say is that after thirteen years of retirement I have kept myself more than busy doing things I never had time for when I was working.

Now where did I put those cannabis seeds. 😊

I think it was more directed to younger people getting into trouble if you don't keep them busy...

Re: Ethical Veganism.

And the airlines that have leather seats are rubbing their hands in glee - no more inconvenient vegan passengers, so no more annoying special vegan diets to count, recount, and run out of!
