BBC says Fish & Chips not English

English Fish and Chips

“The unlikely origin of fish and chips.”

BBC.CO.UK, 21 Dec 2009: Fish and chips are a national institution – and now chippies across the country are preparing to celebrate the 150th birthday of our most famous fast food.

Winston Churchill called them “the good companions”. John Lennon smothered his in tomato ketchup. Michael Jackson liked them with mushy peas.

They sustained morale through two world wars and helped fuel Britain’s industrial prime.

For generations, fish and chips have fed millions of memories – eaten with greasy fingers on a seaside holiday, a pay-day treat at the end of the working week or a late-night supper on the way home from the pub.

UK Muslims are Europe’s most patriotic

'Patriot British Muslims' who aided 7-7 bombers

'Patriotic British Muslims' found guilty of aiding 7-7 bombers

Muslims in Britain are the most patriotic in Europe — but more than a quarter in some parts of the country still do not feel British, according to a new study.

THE TIMES, 13 Dec 2009: The report, funded by George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, found that on average 78% of Muslims identified themselves as British, although this dropped by six points in east London. This compares with 49% of Muslims who consider themselves French and just 23% who feel German.

The findings, based on more than 2,000 detailed interviews, suggest that Muslims may be better integrated in Britain than in other parts of the European Union.

The report will reopen the debate about the merits of multiculturalism, a policy that has actively promoted cultural and religious differences among minorities in Britain but has been criticised as a barrier to integration by Trevor Phillips, chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

Buddhism is fastest-growing religion in English jails over past decade

Buddhism is the fastest-growing religion in England’s jails, with the number of followers rising eightfold over the past decade.

DAILY TELEGRAPH, 5 Aug 2009: Although adherents to the Eastern faith believe in peace and the sanctity of life, almost all of the Buddhists behind bars in this country are serving lengthy sentences for serious crimes such as violence and sex offences.

Some jails and secure hospitals including Broadmoor have opened shrines known as Buddha Groves in their grounds, and there is a nationwide network of chaplains to cater for the growing population.

It is claimed that most of the Buddhists in jail converted after their conviction, and chose it over other religions because its emphasis on meditation helps them cope with being locked up.

Supporters of Buddhist criminals say they also believe the spiritual development they gain in prison will help them once they are released, and prevent them from re-offending.

Lord Avebury, a Liberal Democrat peer who is the patron of Angulimala, the Buddhist Prison Chaplaincy Organisation, told The Daily Telegraph: “The numbers are quite remarkable. I think one of the reasons is that they convert to Buddhism in prison – it’s a reasonable hypothesis that they become interested when inside.

Actress urges students to carry on fighting prejudice; claims Rwandan-born son endured ‘unpleasant’ experiences.

GUARDIAN, 6 Nov 2009: The actor Emma Thompson has urged a university to work to stamp out racism after her adopted son endured “unpleasant” experiences while studying there.

On Thursday, during the debate entitled All Africans Now: Artistry and Activism, a member of the audience raised the issue of the BNP and comments by its leader that London was no longer a British city because of its racial diversity.

Thompson replied that Griffin “would feel very comfortable here”. The questioner asked: “What can we do to change the whiteness of Devon and Cornwall? How can we expand our university?”

France to launch national pride campaign in battle against Islamic fundamentalism

DAILY MAIL, 27 Oct 2009: France is to adopt a series of measures to ‘reaffirm pride’ in the country and combat Islamic fundamentalism. They include everybody receiving lessons in the nation’s Christian history and children singing the national anthem.

Using words which infuriated ethnic minority groups and Socialist opponents, immigration minister Eric Besson also said he wanted ‘foreigners to speak better French’.

He called for all recent arrivals to be monitored by ‘Republican godfathers’, charged with helping immigrants to integrate better.

His proposed measures contrast sharply with the situation in Britain where ‘citizenship education’ centres on multicultural diversity.

Anglo-Saxon pottery kiln finds unearthed in Staffordshire

Anglo-Saxon pottery kiln finds in Staffordshire suggest the area may have been famous for its pottery far longer than previously thought.

DAILY TELEGRAPH, 3Oct09: [Various finds from different time periods have been] discovered in a pit beneath a back room on the site of the Turk’s Head Inn at Tipping Street car park in Stafford. … The dig has so far unearthed some Anglo Saxon pottery kilns suggesting Stafford could have been a major player in the production of pottery. …

Stafford was originally a fortified Saxon settlement founded in 913AD by Queen Aethelflaed (the Lady of the Mercians). The settlement was probably located close to the River Sow and surrounded by extensive marshland as this offered good natural defences, control of any river crossing and easy access to water.

Crunch time for English orchards as apple sales plunge

DAILY MAIL, 22Sep09: The apple orchards of Britain are under threat as sales of the fruit decline, growers and conservationists claim.

Figures show consumption fell by 3.2 per cent last year to 501million kilos, or 1,104million pounds. That is the equivalent of around 100million apples being left on the ground to rot.

The drop in sales comes despite efforts by the Government to encourage us to eat five portions of fruit or vegetables a day.It could also spell disaster for historic orchards producing both apples and pears, which are already under threat from cheap, often tasteless, imports.
