Brittan bowing down to their new overlords

Where is their spine? The "commoners" of course. From the Sunday Express:

Shoppers threaten to boycott Asda supermarket which ONLY sells halal meat on hot counter
Furious shoppers have set up a Facebook page calling for the public to stop buying groceries at the Asda supermarket until it agrees to sell non-halal chickens, ribs, bacon joints and sausages again.

Meat sold on the store's rotisserie stand is now killed in the Islamic tradition, which directs that animals must be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter and all blood drained from the carcass.

This takes ten to fifteen minutes and the animal is alive through the whole process. They do not stun the poor creature, it is hoist upside down, throat cut and left to slowly die. This may have had some relevance in the 9th century when sanitation was a different concept entirely but it has zero place in modern society.

More:

Ms Glover, who cares for her 87-year-old mother, said she takes her shopping at Asda every Tuesday, usually buying her cooked chicken to last her three days.

She said: "We do not have a problem with the store supplying halal meat.

"We understand there is a demand, but to not offer non-halal meat takes away our choice as consumers."

She added: "This country has made huge progress in the cruelty of animals and providing meat humanely killed. We feel this type of slaughtering is barbaric."

We need to remember that the muslims account for less than ten percent of the British population but they are getting this preferential treatment. Let enterprising muslims open their own butcher shops if they want special treatment... Be sure to read the comments.

Pat Condell has an excellent rant on the subject:
