The UK continues to bow to its new overlords. As the body count rises, this appeasement and subjugation is particularly nauseating. Are there no patriots left in Britain? No one willing to defend the nation?
“Schools told to change revision classes, exams and sports days during Ramadan”, by Adam Smith, Metro UK, May 21, 2017:
Schools are being told to change revision classes and reschedule sports days to accommodate the needs of Muslim pupils fasting for Ramadan.
A new report is also urging schools to ‘show sensitivity’ when organising graduation celebrations and make PE lessons ‘less strenuous’ as fasting students could be weaker than normal.

Recommendations include schools should make adjustments to accommodate the needs of fasting pupils, hold exams in rooms in the shade, change times of revision lessons and provide prayer rooms as well as to make sure exam rooms are in the shade with fans and bottles of water available.
The report warns ‘If a student taking an exam is showing any signs that they may be dehydrated, such as a headache or drowsiness, they should be advised to terminate the fast immediately by drinking some water.’
The report was written in consultation with scholars from across the spectrum of Islamic religion.
The guidelines said: ‘Observing Ramadan may bring many benefits to individuals and communities, but also has the potential to cause the individual temporary hardship through hunger and lack of liquids during fasting hours which may impact on physical wellbeing and cognitive performance…..
