Two Mothers And Their Toddler Children Banned From Council-Funded Playgroup - For Being British

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1348564/British-mothers-toddlers-banned-council-funded-playgroup-immigrants.html

Two mothers who were kicked out of a council-funded playgroup spoke of their humiliation today after being told the group was for immigrant families only.

Emma Knightley, 25, and Kimberley Wildman, 27, turned up at the 'Making Links' playgroup with their children Imogen, 21 months, and Olivia, 18 months.

But they were stunned when organisers at the centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ordered them to leave after demanding to know 'what country are you from?'

The best friends were told that only foreign mothers and their children are welcome at the council-funded playgroup - which they have accused of discrimination.

Shop worker Emma, who lives in St Neots, booked a place at the playgroup six weeks ago after it was recommended by a mixed-race friend.

She said: 'The first thing I was asked about was my nationality and when I said I was British I was told we had to leave.

'She said are you not aware this is for foreign people only?

'I said I knew it was trying to integrate people into the community but didn't realise that meant British people and their children were banned.

'I felt humiliated. It shouldn't matter what nationality you are we shouldn't be discriminated against.

'You wouldn't get away with a British-only mum and children's group.

'We want to welcome other nations to the community but turning British people away is not the way to do this.'

Trainee midwife Kimberley, also from St Neots, chose the group because it was free - whereas other groups in the area charged £2.

..........

According to Making Links' website the group 'seeks to operate in the spirit of the Commission for Racial Equality'.

Its targets include: 'bringing communities together and facilitating interaction between them'.

The website claims about 50 women attend the weekly sessions every Thursday.

It adds: 'Making Links frees them from feelings of isolation, helps them build multicultural friendships and empowers them with knowledge about the local community.

'Thus Making Links presents a friendly St Neots face to people who might otherwise be outsiders.'

Roger Owen, administrator for Making Links, said that the group is not a 'typical' playgroup and is funded entirely for women from other nationalities.

He said: 'We believe there are plenty of other alternatives for British mothers in the town.

'We have had an issue with men turning up before and back then we told them the group is strictly for mothers so it's nothing to do with racial discrimination.'

So it's about making multicultural friendships which excludes people from the home nation.

I wonder if Black / Asian UK nationals are banned as well?

This babbling waffle of the finest order, yes Roger excluding men is not racial discrimination it's in fact called sexual discrimination.

Does this charity publish accounts I wonder if Roger works for free or is a highly paid official talking bu115h1t!

Although it could be the Wail misrepresenting everything....

Imogen and Olivia, hmmm.

Proof I think that once-posh names tend to slip down the social scale with time.

I don't think many of the chattering class are calling their kids Mercedes or Lauren of late.

Ahem, ahem - does no one see the utter absurdity of this PC hypocrisy coming one day after that gay hotel ruling???

Nope. Apples and oranges. This story is analagous to the hotel turning the male couple away. It has yet to come to court (or any tribunal), but if it does then the court's ruling will be the story comparable to the hotel judgement.

From this source ( http://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/Home/Playgroup-says-its-ban-on-British-is-not-racist.htm ) one of the mothers said :-

"She said: “The first thing I was asked about was my nationality and when I said I was British I was told we had to leave."

And it's not even a daily mail article ... this mirrors my experience of anti-white anti-british racism ... albeit in the workplace.

I'm also waiting for a discussion thread over at mailwatch.co.uk, talk.guardian.co.uk or www.urban75.net defending this shit - nothing yet obviously ...

PS. What on earth are you on about Porca ? It's nothing like the hotel gay couple case - this creche is publicly funded, and it is discriminating on the basis of race. You don't know what you're talking about.

Making Links is funded by five different organisations including St Neots Town Council, which gives it a grant of £1,000, the Co-operative community development fund and the Open Door Church in St Neots.

Think about that next time you are asked to give money to unspecified "good causes". Like those BBC celeb ones.

That's what I said! Read the post carefully next time!

And write clear sentences while you're at it.

You were, at the very least, ambiguous. Your post might, for instance, be read as complaining of double standards.

I don't see evidence of double standards in these two stories. But I certainly would if, for instance, a court were to rule in favour of the playgroup's actions. Or if a politician or journalist were to defend the playgroup while also supporting the court's judgement on the hotel.

I like the way they have the foreigners integrate by having them attend a playgroup populated solely by other foreigners. That'll really help them get along with the locals

:blink:

Er, multiculturalism is not about integration!!! Have you ever read any of NuLabia's spin shite?
