LibDems Call for End to Anti-Catholic Bigotry

LibDem equality spokesperson, Lorely Burt, is today calling for an end to discrimination against Catholics. She therefore rises in my estimation considerably (am pretty certain she also put her card behind the bar one night after an event Guido attended, it is all a bit vague).

“Before he steps down, Tony Blair should consider removing this institutional discrimination. After all, if reports are to believed, he may have a rather more personal interest in Catholic affairs when he leaves No. 10; he should act whilst he still has the chance.” Hmm.

Remember, remember…

Falconer : Anti-Catholic Statutory Bigotry to Stay

The government can find time in the busy legislatory calendar to drive Catholic Adoption agencies out of business, but it can’t find time to amend anti-Roman Catholic bigotry enshrined in statute. Lord Falconer told Lord Patten that “The Government already have a heavy legislative programme and therefore have no plans to legislate in this area.”

They say the victors write the history books. Remember, remember, that it was because of the existence of an oppressive anti-Catholic protestant tyranny of corrupt politicians that Guido origianlly sought to blow up parliament on 5/11. After four centuries the only remaining statutory discrimination is still against Guido’s co-religionists. It is shameful that today, in a purportedly modern liberal democracy, the state discriminates against one specific faith. Did you know it is still the law that a Catholic parish church has to get authorisation from the local Anglican church for its own name? The political leader that promises to remove these symbolic but shameful laws will not be forgotten by Catholic voters…

Remember, Remember….

Centuries of anti-Catholic discrimination could come to an end if John Gummer gets his way. Not often that Guido lines up behind Cornerstone, but with this bill the headbangers should prevail.
Gummer’s speech moving the bill was good, very gently listing some of the slights against the Catholic church still on the statute books. He neglected to list the terrible suffering of Guido’s co-religionists under protestant tyrants. That may be history, but in truth it is shameful that today a purportedly modern liberal democracy discriminates against one specific faith.

Somebody said to Guido that it was indeed a terrible shame that Baby Ms Fawkes could not become head of state or even marry one. Wrong on both counts Guido told them, the presidency of Ireland is hers for the taking…

Quote of the Day

Adam Boulton says David Cameron campaigned as a neo-Thatcherite…

“The manifesto programme, with its sell-off of social housing, clampdown on public sector strikes, EU in/out referendum and benefit cuts, represents a much more traditional, neo-Thatcherite conservatism than that offered by Cameron Mk 1…”
