They talk privatizing here too.

The Tory's have lied to us about not privatising the NHS for years but some how some Brits still believe them. Idiots.

The Independent Review on Sharia: Sharia Laws are part of the extremist threat and not a solution.

Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP Secretary of State Home Office 2 Marsham Street London SW1P 4DF
6th February 2018


Dear Right Hon Amber Rudd, MP,
The Independent Review on Sharia: Sharia Laws are part of the extremist threat and not a solution
As black and minority women and human rights campaigners, we voice our dismay at the outcome of the independent review on Sharia laws commissioned by the government in 2016. Although the government has rejected formal recognition (through regulation), the way has been left open for the Sharia courts to continue to exist in a no-man’s land where they continue to produce discriminatory parallel laws while posing as an acceptable alternative dispute mechanism. Now they will be strengthened by a review that has endorsed their existence.

NSS urges Government not to be pushed into funding Church repairs
Posted: Fri, 02 Feb 2018 14:28

The National Secular Society has urged the Government to take the Church of England's vast wealth into account before handing out any more grants to assist it with building repairs.
NSS representatives met with the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to discuss the findings of a recent Government commissioned review into the sustainability of the Church of England's church and cathedral buildings.
The Taylor review said that care, maintenance and repair of England's 16,000 churches is an "enormous task" and advocated for more local authority and central government funding. It was shortly followed by a report of the Church of England's Cathedral Working Group, which also called for "dialogue with the Government about state funding for cathedrals."
But the NSS warned that government pay-outs were unlikely to improve church sustainability and said no further grants should be made without properly assessing the Church's financial need.
The Church of England's fragmented financial structure makes calculating its total wealth difficult, but it is thought to hold assets in excess of £15bn. Despite this, at least £810m of public money has been channelled into the Church via Government and lottery sources since 1999.
Meanwhile, the Church of England's Strategic Investment Board has recently announced plans to spend £24.4m on evangelism projects which will include opening new churches in deprived urban estates.
Last year attendance at Church of England services plunged to its lowest level ever. Official figures showed that only 1.4% of the population of England now attend Anglican services on a typical Sunday morning.
National Secular Society CEO Stephen Evans said: "With a fast falling number of adherents the Church should seriously consider downsizing so it can stand on its own two feet.
"But the truth is that the Church has more than enough money to finance its own maintenance and repairs but would rather spend its money on mission. By accepting responsibility to fund church repairs the state is, in effect, subsidising Church of England evangelism.
"The nation's heritage buildings are a valuable asset, and those of architectural, cultural and historical significance should be preserved. But the state should think twice before handing over taxpayers' money to a wealthy institution with a labyrinthine financial structure and a missionary zeal."

Religious bullies are on a roll. It’s time we all stood up to them

Religious bullies are on a roll. It’s time we all stood up to them

Amid a series of concessions to religious hardliners, Stephen Evans says those brave enough to resist their demands need much more support.
No sooner had Sara Khan been appointed the new Commissioner for Countering Extremism than the reactionaries were howling their disapproval. Baroness Warsi played the role of ringleader of the tormentors. Accusing Khan of being a "mouthpiece for the Home Office", she divisively peddled the corrosive grievance narrative that has driven such a deep a wedge between many British Muslims and the state.

Khan has made clear her willingness to engage with anyone interested in building a Britain that defends diversity without sacrificing our shared values, fundamental freedoms and human rights. Those unwilling to engage are likely to be part of the problem, not the solution.

Take the case of St Stephen's school in Newham. When the leaders of this primary school called on the government to take a firm stand on hijabs and fasting among young Muslim children in classrooms it faced a tsunami of pressure to recant. Within days its policy of prohibiting the hijab for girls under eight was reversed and its chair of governors resigned, fearing for the safety of the school's staff. Community 'leaders', driven on by Islamists masquerading as civil libertarians, are now agitating for school's head to go. Never mind that this school has delivered outstanding outcomes for its students. The message is clear; dare to stand up to fundamentalism and we'll come for you.
