Now the religious claim that first come first served for burials is discriminatory
.                                               WHY

Coroner ordered to change 'cab-rank' burial release policy

A London coroner has been ordered by the High Court to change her "cab-rank" queuing policy for handling burials after it was ruled "unlawful".
Senior coroner Mary Hassell had said she would not fast-track inquests based on religion.
Under Jewish and Islamic law, bodies must be buried on the day of death or as soon as possible afterwards.
Her jurisdiction covers north London which is home to large communities of orthodox Jews and Muslims.
Lord Justice Singh said the policy set by Ms Hassell was discriminatory and must be quashed.

Religion a major source of tension in Britain, poll finds

The National Secular Society has said policy makers must avoid dividing people along religious lines after a poll found that religion is a major source of tension in British society.
A survey by Ipsos-Mori for the BBC found that 47% of people in Great Britain thought differences 'between different religions' were among the most significant divisions in the country.
Ipsos-Mori asked respondents between which groups, if any, they thought 'there is most tension' in their country today. Religious differences got the second highest score of eight possible answers. Only differences 'between immigrants and people born in Great Britain' scored higher, with 50%.
Respondents in Britain rated religious differences as more significant than those based on wealth, ethnicity, age, politics, gender and where people live.
The pollsters put a series of questions about social divisions to people in 27 countries. In the survey as a whole 27% of people cited religious differences as a significant source of tension.
The poll also found that people in Britain think their society is divided but see the benefits of mixing with people from different backgrounds, including those with different religious views.
Eighty-five per cent of people in Britain think their society is 'very' or 'fairly' divided. This was the seventh-highest score out of 27 countries. More than seven in 10 (73%) British respondents also said their society was 'more divided' now than a decade ago, with just seven per cent saying it was 'less divided'. Britain was the fifth-highest scoring country on this measure.
When asked whether Britain had become more or less tolerant of 'people with different backgrounds, cultures or points of view' over the last 10 years, 49% of respondents said 'less'. Twenty-seven per cent said 'more'.
Forty-six per cent of British respondents said mixing with people from other religions 'leads to mutual understanding and respect', with only 11% saying it 'causes conflict'. Thirty per cent said it 'can sometimes lead to misunderstandings but these can usually be overcome'.
A majority of British respondents (52%) said mixing with people from other backgrounds, cultures or points of view 'leads to mutual understanding and respect'. Just eight per cent said it 'causes conflict', with 28% saying it 'can sometimes lead to misunderstandings but these can usually be overcome'.
Seven in ten people in Britain also said 'people across the world have more things in common than things that make them different'.
NSS spokesperson Chris Sloggett said the findings dealt "a comprehensive blow to those who insist on defining British citizens by their religious identities".

The BBC worked directly with MI5 to bar left-wing journalists and prevent a left-wing British government

The BBC worked directly with the British Security Service MI5 to politically vet job candidates to ensure those with left-wing views did not get offered jobs within the Corporation – a practice that the BBC and MI5 introduced to directly prevent a left-wing British government, a startling new report has revealed.

The staggering new information also reveals that the BBC’s policy of barring left-wing journalists continued into the 1990s, and that the Corporation’s Chiefs intentionally lied about the BBC using such methods to Official Employment tribunals.
