Now Whitehall's woke 'blob' tries to ban
Christmas: Ministers are warned using
the word in festive jab drive will offend minorities

Civil servants have blocked the word 'Christmas' from efforts to avert a winter Covid crisis, as they fear it would offend minority religions. The ban, detailed in emails leaked to The Mail on Sunday, was revealed as Boris Johnson announced tighter travel restrictions and new rules on masks in a bid to limit the spread of the new Omicron variant. Ministers had also planned a publicity blitz telling students to get tested before returning to their families using the slogan: 'Don't take Covid home for Christmas'–but it was vetoed by Cabinet Office officials. The move sparked a row over 'wokeism' in the Civil Service


Christians won't be the majority for long, especially in London. Will the new masters be as caring and tolerant of them as we've been to the Newcomers brought in by the government?

The United Kingdom is not a secular country. The Anglican Church is its official religion. The Queen is the Defender of the Faith. This is ridiculous.

Why does no one ever worry about offending the majority? (Rhetorical question - we all know the answer.)

Ho Hum...what else is new? Boris Johnson comes into office and starts taking stupid pills. Who gives a rat's a** if minorities are offended? They don't like it, then they can take a hike back to Africa or Pakistan or whatever god-awful place they came from. I'm sick and tired of politicians kow-towing to smelly types that have only recently taken to wearing shoes and beat their wives and children to pulps.

Advertisers in the US have substituted "holiday" for Christmas since about 2005. Carols are rarely heard, Decorations are basically some lights strung up here and there. They want the money from gift buying and nothing to do with Christ's birth.

Police are investigating a series of fights that broke out at Terminal 2 of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport just before midnight Friday. The fights erupted among a dozen or so male and female passengers after two large groups deplaned from a Frontier Airlines flight, according to Patrick Hogan, spokesman for the Metropolitan Airports Commission, which operates MSP. A video of the incident, which lasted just over a minute, was posted on social media and shared by more than 7,000 people by midday Monday. Blows were exchanged between several people and "some of the individuals threw stanchions and broke chairs," Hogan said.(Snip)No arrests have been made,

The owner of a Maryland seafood and ice processing company that employed at least 89 illegal immigrants was sentenced last week to a year of probation and a $15,000 fine, and had to promise to use E-Verify to screen new hires in the future. Philip J. “Jamie” Harrington III worked out the deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to a single charge of unlawful employment of illegal immigrants.

Gov. Charlie Baker expects a state-sanctioned COVID-19 vaccination passport program to be implemented in Massachusetts and several other states soon. During an appearance on GBH News' Boston Public Radio, Baker said a scannable quick response code, commonly known as a QR code, would show a person's vaccination status and be made available for others to scan and verify. "It's a universal standard and we've been working with a bunch of other states, there's probably 15 or 20 of them, to try to create a single QR code that can be used for all sorts of things where people may choose to require a vaccine," Baker said

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell says that the appearance of a new COVID-19 variant could slow the economy and hiring, while also raising uncertainty about inflation. The recent increase in delta cases and the emergence of the omicron variant 'pose downside risks to employment and economic activity and increased uncertainty for inflation,' Powell said Monday in prepared remarks to be delivered to the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday. The new variant could also worsen supply chain disruptions, he said. Powell's comments come after other Fed officials in recent weeks have said the central bank should consider winding down its ultra-low interest rate policies more quickly than it currently plans.

On the first day of Christmas, the Bidens gave to thee a gas pump without the highway robbery. This year’s holiday decorations, unveiled Monday, feature the traditional gingerbread White House in the State Dining Room, nestled amid a confectionery street scene of businesses that have helped keep America running through the COVID-19 pandemic. In a prominent spot next to the White House is a miniature gas station with two tiny pumps, no prices visible. Nearby is a grocery store, another reminder of record inflation. The sight prompted comments on social media at a time when Americans are paying 60% more for gas than they did a year ago.

President Joe Biden on Monday urged Americans to get vaccinated or get their booster shots amid warnings about the spread of the Omicron variant–but insisted that the infectious new variant was not a cause for 'panic' and said no new restrictions were needed. 'We'll fight this variant with scientific and knowledgeable actions and speed, not chaos and confusion,' Biden said at the White House. But even amid the pressing nature of the new variant, Biden misstated the name of the variant. 'It's called the Omnicron,' he said, inserting an extra 'n'–an error his coronavirus advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was standing in the background, also committed.

As the coronavirus pandemic raged, Uncle Sam was doing more than putting money in unemployed Americans’ pockets—the federal government was also shipping tens of billions of dollars overseas to fraudsters working with the country’s most prominent adversaries, such as China and Russia. Haywood Talcove, CEO for LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ government division, says 40% of the more than $700 billion spent on unemployment went to fraudsters. Most of that ill-gotten money—$175 billion of it—went to overseas actors. And most of that, perhaps $140 billion, went to organizations that are state-sponsored. “It makes me mad that there hasn’t been enough oversight, that the tools that are needed

The gender pay gap is rooted in the issue of 'greedy jobs', rather than sex discrimination, gender bias or a glass ceiling, a Harvard economics professor has claimed. Claudia Goldin, who taught Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, outlines her argument in her new book, Career & Family, which draws on research to show that highly-paid 'greedy jobs' in City law, banking and politics force women to choose between their careers and families once they become mothers. The term 'greedy job' describes 'a certain type of "beck and call" job, which pays over the odds for extensive travel, unpredictable, inflexible hours and demanding client facetime,' The Times explains.

The variant was just discovered this week, but already you can hear the race to paint it in the worst light possible, suggesting that there was a lot to be concerned about because it was “heavily mutated,” that immunity and the vaccines might not protect against it. We saw the Dow take a huge plunge immediately after, likely in part because of thinking that this news could lead back to more government restrictions and problems. The Biden administration reacted in a chaotic fashion. First, Dr. Anthony Fauci said
