A Tricky issue indeed..

Hi, I’ve just been on the phone with one of my friends who I’ve known for 35 years, He is a school teacher at a mixed secondary, He teaches all three Sciences and he was telling me there is a situation that is getting very tense in the school of a 12 year old girl who is from Egypt, she moved to the uk just weeks ago & her parents who have demanded that she MUST sit only with other girls,

Where it has become tense is that the fact that all the classes are mixed and that the parents of the girl have now started to dictate to the teachers and the Head how much space/distance they should be between their child and the boys when sat in the class? This is becoming a very large issue in the school and it has the potential to be much larger due to the amount of other Muslims getting on board, I can see this getting out of hand...

If this school is having such trouble with this issue, why has the Daily Mail not got involved? Right up their street I would have thought, unless even they think there is no 'story' in it .

"I noticed a lot of non-Scotish"

I was in Glasgow south side yesterday.

If you noticed me you should have said hello.

Ahhh the good old spurious 'damned immigrants' story.

White Anglo Saxon Foaming at Mouth checklist:-

Story about people clearly not from around here - check Ideally Muslim/Gypsy - check Over here making use of our tax paid services - check Telling us what to do in our own country - check

Did you know they have removed the word 'gullible' from the dictionary

Rick'scafe it imho has nothing to do where they are from? it about having to change our lifestyle for a minority, that school has been doing things the way they have for many years i am sure & it also would of had many other muslim girls in there and no one has made any issues before?

So why should the school have to have to change its rules for someone thats not familiar with how the uk works? they should settle down and settle in before they start to throw their rule book at the school..

Orange marches have nothing to do with this. You said you noticed a lot of non-Scottish people. I asked you how you know that they were not Scottish, and blathering away about Orange marches doesn't answer the question.

How did you know these people were not Scottish - come to that, what would the significance have been if they weren't?

Surely the parents of this girl should be advised to enrol her in a girls only school then they'd have no problem at all...

FE I suspect aitchbee was making a nasty wee point about Celtic fans walking to the match.
