Council inadvertently sums up absurd notion of “religious” child.
Islington council’s decision to stop serving sausages at its schools is a story purpose-built to provoke the right-wing press into a mouth-foaming rage along the old themes of nationhood, multiculturalism and political correctness.
Yet amid the denouncements for what seems likely to have been a simple cost cutting measure, few seem to have noticed the curious council statement at the close of the Islington Gazette’s report:
Young children, some as young as four-years-old, of different religious and ethnic backgrounds may not know which foods contain pork, or may not realise the importance of avoiding it due to their culture or beliefs.
What a wonderful piece of absurdity.
