A view from a barstool #34 by Landlord

Beer 2Well there’s a thing, another week of lovely warm sunshine keeping winter at bay and I’m getting it in the neck from the Landlady for putting away the summer play things in the pub garden, I blame the weathermen who told me it was going to be a short Indian summer.

I have a question to ask. Are you ready for the Biffers silly season? Yep it’s that time again. As Autumn hits our shores the biffers propaganda ministry will go into overdrive. Muslims taking control of government and councils to harm all British patriots’ way of life. Hallowe’en, Remembrance Day, Christmas, the usual shit fuelled by the bastions of truth The Sun, Mail and Express.

So lets have a look at these Great British traditions one by one. These traditions that every year are supposedly shut down by Islamic leaders, every year we see hysterical headlines and social media statuses that are basically either downright lies or twist the story to such a degree that Muslims are made to be the evil ones fuelling an already slow burning hatred that has got worse since the referendum.

Hallowe’en, the day when parents all over the country, who normally wouldn’t let their kids go round knocking on doors or talking to strangers, allow their kids to do just that. This last year was supposedly banned in a lot of areas. It wasn’t in most places and where it was it was the police and councils fearing anti social behaviour. Again we saw headlines in the gruesome threesome and fuelled the hate.

Remembrance day – the day British Patriots adore as once more they can pretend to be more patriotic than the rest of us. Age old stories will be regurgitated, poppies being burnt, Muslims disrespecting the dead, Muslims stopping remembrance marches and Biffers adding security to armed forces cadets selling poppies.

BF NF EBF Paul Golding underpantsThe poppies were burnt, yes but a long time ago, the people doing it were dealt with there and then and they were rightly convicted and fined. It reminds me of the pictures I saw of a certain BNP racist cockwomble wandering around the cenotaph with a pair of Y-fronts om his head. If you havent seen this before this arsewipe has become leader of a “registered political” party.

Our memes last year documented the hundreds of thousands of Muslims who died protecting our freedom. Their relatives must be wondering why right now.

Finally, on Remembrance Day , or at least on the run up to the day Goldibollocks tells his shit troopers to go and “protect” the army of cadets who collect money for veterans from the hordes of lefties and Muslims that are out to desecrate the memories of the fallen. Except they don’t protect…..they hide away until any adults have gone off then get a selfie with the cadets, place it on Facebook and the dickwads that follow the page eat it up. The Biffers respect our fallen so much they sell tat, dressed up as British Legion merchandise and pocket the money for their own grubby means.

A friend of the page, John McKnight has been asking Goldibollocks where the money raised has gone. Ask yourself the question then, who disrespects the fallen more, Muslims, lefties, Foldibollocks or the biffers.

muslims ban christmas propaganda fail.jpgFinally Christmas, I don’t think there is a day goes by in November or December that a headline in the gruesome threesome, a meme or a link to an ultra right wing think tank that doesn’t say CHRISTMAS GETS CANCELLED. Now I don’t like Christmas apart from my coffers bulging but each to their own. The Muslims I know celebrate the day, maybe not as christians do but still give presents, invite friends for a cocktail or three (grrr not spending in my gaff) and generally enjoy the time as much as a certain grumpy landlord. Also, in the afternoon, Naz opens his store for forgotten things and fags. The reasons lights, decorations or trees don’t go up is not Muslims, grumpy landlords or athiests it’s because councils can’t afford it, health and safety or a myriad of other reasons.

MUSLIMS DO NOT WANT TO CANCEL CHRISTMAS!

But it doesn’t matter to Biffers. Any article in the propaganda sheets will be siezed upon and twisted for their own gain to keep the anti Muslim sentiment going.

I would offer a packet of toffee chocolate hobnobs if you manage to see a positive article about any of these but I checked EBF coffers and we seem only to have half a packet of midget gems, two packets of quavers, a bottle of Lambrini and a packet of hummus.

Now back to the job, putting back up the climbing frame, swings and benches…..wheres my hammer.

Halal certification. It’s a business thing.

Our thanks to an EBF supporter who sent in this article explaining the reality of Halal (and other) food certification labels.

6 halalOn Britain First you’ll often see lots of people who are upset about halal food. Never Shechita (Kosher), by the way, just halal. Many claimed that they are ‘not bothered about animal welfare’ but that they don’t want to eat anything that’s had a ‘mumbo jumbo prayer to a false god’ said over it. Most conflate non stunned slaughter with ‘halal’ not realising, or not wanting to know that ‘halal’ covers a much wider range than the method of slaughter and the saying of a blessing. Halal simply means ‘permissible’, something that’s allowed. Anything that is not allowed is ‘haram’ All of the major Abrahamic religions have dietary restrictions. Christians, Jews and Muslims are not supposed to eat pork, and Christians are forbidden to eat shellfish.

2 vegetarian societyLeviticus 11:7-8  :

And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. You shall not eat any of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.

4 veganLeviticus 11:10 : But anything in the seas or the rivers that has not fins and scales, of the swarming creatures in the waters and of the living creatures that are in the waters, is detestable to you.

Shellfish and Pork are ‘haram’ to Christians, Jews and Muslims although it seems that Jews and Muslims are much more likely to observe these laws.

1 Gluten freeIn addition, while alcohol is not strictly forbidden in the bible, drunkeness is frowned upon Galatians 5:21 : Envy, drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Since practicing Muslims and Jews observe these religious dietary requirements, they are careful about what they eat.  Some products may contain gelatin derived from pigs and some may have ‘hidden’ alcohol.

It’s pretty obvious that you are buying pork if you buy pork chops or bacon, it’s pretty obvious that you are buying alcohol if you buy a bottle of wine – but some products have hidden pork products and may contain alcohol. Did you know that fruit pastels contain gelatin? Did you know that baked products containing vanilla extract may contain alcohol? If these ingredients are forbidden for you to eat, wouldn’t you like to know that they are in the product so you can avoid it? What about if you are a vegetarian? Or need a gluten free diet? Perhaps you’re allergic to dairy, or prefer your produce to be organic or soil association approved. Vegetarians and vegans would also need to avoid those fruit pastels.

3 soil associationFor many years, people with special dietary requirements have had to stand about in the supermarket aisles, trying to read the small print on the back of the products – and some of it is VERY small. It used to be the case that anyone with these dietary needs had to spend a lot of time carefully selecting products, or stick to the few they knew were safe to eat if in a hurry.

But the food industry is big business and could easily lose sales if they are missing out on the purchasing power of a percentage of the population. Not about to miss out on business, food certification became an eye catching way to make sure that your product is SEEN to be safe, and seen quickly. Certification boards were set up to inspect food for it’s content. If the food met the boards standards they were awarded with a label that set their product visibly apart from others (that may also be safe to consume.) The boards charge the manufacturers a fee to display such labelling but this is a worthwhile overhead for manufacturers to have.  It’s a form of advertising. Those certification labels shout loudly from the shelves that the product is safe to consume, whatever dietary requirement it meets.

It is much easier and quicker to shop when you can look for a familiar and trusted logo on show, and you are more likely to choose the product that you can easily SEE is safe to consume, than to read all the small print on others, which might be equally safe. So food certification applies to many food types.

Halal certification is a business thing.

It’s not funding terrorism, it’s increasing the manufacturers sales, which makes it simply good business sense to have your food products certified ‘safe’ to consume, for every consumer.

Remember too, that air is also halal, and take a good deep breath of fresh air, and count to ten the next time you have to explain to a bigot the way business works for increased profits.
