My daugther was pulled aside from her driving job with TFL and told not to wear a Christmas funny hat as they had had a complaint from some body asking if TFL was a Christain run company, this country has gone start raving bonkers, she wore it to cheer up the old people, but someone saw fit to complain. In my mind if you do not like OUR values then you should live somewhere else, why shouldn't she cheer up our lonely vunerable elderly?
But what are our values.Less than a few hundred thousand go to church.The church of England is to moth ball a third of its churches many only open for Weddings .Funerals and Christmas.The Prince of Wales has declared he want to be a Multi faith King.The House of Lords is to appoint Muslim Lords and reduce the number of Church of England Lords.I think the idea we are a christian country ceased 30 years ago even before Blair let in 6 million non christians.Christmas has become a shopping spree and will you go to Church at Christmas?
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it.
Hi Percy our country now has become full of greed selfishness and gluttony, people only out for themselves. There is stillca lot of good work being done in the Chritian community which many people don't hear about and they keep pressing on. I feel very sad for the future generations it's a sick world, even when you look at Stehen and his problems with his club how on earth can disabled people be so cruel to one another?
As an atheist I don't give a stuff about the so called Christmas message. I don't celebrate it as a religious holiday but keep it going as a family thing in the main for my mum and little one. I can see both you guys argument. If those who want to celebrate it as a religious thing then fine and I do like the Christmas spirit even if its somewhat hypocritical. As for those who supposedly get the ump about it all I can say is its our thing we are not going to stop celebrating it and if they don't like it tough. When in Rome do as the Romans do! Anyway is it really other religious groups moaning or is it really a bunch of PC tossers in LA's up and down the country too scared of losing their seats incase they upset this or that minority group?
Tell me what a Christian should or shouldn't say you like to push buttons don't you Percy?. We have a voice like everyone else, as Christians, we are allowed to speak up when there is unfairness and injustice in the world.
A Christmas funny hat has nothing to do with Christianity starry eyes but merely apart of the razzmatazz like bonbons and so on associated with the festive season. The complainant, in my view, is and idiot.
If your daughter was wearing a jumper depicting the nativity, the complainant may have had a point albeit a pathetic one. Therefore, the complainant should then be informed that the Christmas Festival is a tradition dating back centuries in the UK, a joyous celebration, in which people exude their feelings of excitement in harmless and sometimes frivolous fun ways.
The Hum Bug people should go to bed until the New Year.
Refugees do not have the right to demand but should accept the blessings bestowed upon them gracefully by nations extending the hand of friendship.
What the hell is wrong with TFL - apart from almost everything! What on earth is wrong with wearing a funny Christmas hat? Quite frankly they should have told the complainant to sod off. I have friends of different faiths who celebrate Christmas - not the religious side obviously, but certainly having a celebratory family gathering. I once worked with a Jewish lad who had planned to visit his new partner's parents - his own father (a rabbi) was devastated and asked his son "So you won't be home for Christmas". Regardless of religion, Christmas and all that goes with it is an integral part of Britishness and should be defended not apologised for.
Sadly this is the state Britain has become, it was giving her and her passengers a laugh and brightening their day, as obviously with the Christmas traffic nerves were a little bit frayed and you cannot be annoyed when you see these hats on her facebook page. What a misrable lot we have become, and don't forget these rides are free, whatever religon TFL is if you don't like it take a taxi, that's my take on it.
