British People: Mugs

Its not often I read or cite The Sun but on this occasion, I have to (alas) -

JAIL bosses are rebuilding toilets so Muslim inmates don’t have to use them while facing Mecca.

Thousands of pounds of taxpayers money are being spent to ensure lags are not offended.

The Islamic religion prohibits Muslims from facing or turning their backs on the Kiblah — the direction of prayer — when they visit the lav.

Muslim lags claimed they have had to sit sideways on prison WCs.

But after pressure from faith leaders the Home Office has agreed to turn the existing toilets 90 degrees at HMP Brixton in London.

The Home Office refused to reveal the cost of the new facilities — part of an “on-going refurbishment”

Now I could say they are "taking the piss" or that its "tough shit" they can't use the toilet in this way.

But seriously, does Islam condone whatever it was that put them behind bars in the first place? I suspect not.

Is this even correct? I've never heard of anyone "complain" before.

Pandering to this type of nonsense just shows us all as a bunch of mugs. Never mind the fact we've no place for Paedophiles or Robbers, we still have to keep those who profess to be religious happy.

Personally, I'd have told them to like it or lump it. They're lucky they don't have a metal bucket to slop out every morning.

If you said that they might lump it on the floor.

Thats fine by me. If people wish to act like animals, they're more than welcome to live in their own filth.
