Just come across this in a BBC Daily News Letter "Veiled woman to give C4's speech A veiled Muslim woman is to deliver Channel 4's alternative Christmas message, the broadcaster announces." I didn't know there was an alternative to Christmas. I thought other religions had their own special days etc. How long will it be before we have a Muslim King or Queen? ..Bingalau..
"Channel 4's alternative Christmas message, which will be produced by independent company Chameleon TV, will air at 3pm on Christmas Day against the Queen's traditional broadcast on BBC1 and ITV1.
The broadcaster began its alternative Christmas messages in 1993 and has previously featured a varied selection of speakers including Quentin Crisp, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Doreen and Neville Lawrence, Ali G, Sharon Osbourne and The Simpsons."
No not happy at all. Although I do not support the Monarchy, I do not see the need for an extra message at Christmas. Why someone in a veil? Mind you that would be better than Sharon Osbourne! Come to that I don't see the need for one at all. We will be having two National Anthems next. The dirge we've got is bad enough. Enough said I suppose before I get chucked off... ..Bingalau..
