‘He was later arrested and pled guilty to racist breach of the peace at Lanark Sheriff Court’

Man refuses treatment from British-Asian optician because ‘Manchester attack was the last straw’

    “,,,He then said: “I don’t mean to sound impersonal but I’d rather be seen by a white person,” the Scotsman reported.”

    Ok lets play with this, and predict the likelihood of arrests with these examples.

    “She then said: I don’t mean to sound impersonal, but I’d rather be seen by a woman doctor.”

    “She then said: I don’t mean to sound impersonal, but I’d rather be seen by a muslim person.”

    • It’s OK when they do it.

        Yes, it’s the hypocrisy and consistently double standards that bother me the most: one set of laws for “Asians” and another for the lesser folk.

    [Sheriff Nikola Stewart] said: “Charlottesville is what happens if you don’t take this kind of thing seriously.”

    No Sheriff Stewart, Manchester is what happens if you don’t take this gentleman’s concerns seriously.

    I don’t see where anyone has a duty to be served by another person, for whatever reason. It may be stupid and offensive, but we are still somewhat sovereign over our bodies. The correct response would be, OK … and the mope goes to the back of the line.

    A service is being provided. The consumer has the right to choose who he will see. The government should stay out of it. No reason to change him for choosing who he wants. Britain has gone insane.

    What happened to ‘the customer is always right’???

    It now appears that in Britain you cannot choose who will be willing to work for you , for your benefit. You are forced to interact with someone who does not have your best interest at heart.
    This cannot stand. That’s like forcing me to pay top dollar for mediocre product, or forcing a marriage between people who dislike each other….oh wait…..

    Something I wrote back in 2007. I didn’t check to see if the “Muslim doctors/dentists code of ethics” has been changed probably because I doubt it has:


    Below is the beginning section of the constitution of the Muslim Doctors and Dentists Association of the UK –

    Please note under section 2 Objects and powers that their main object is to ADVANCE THE ISLAMIC RELIGION IN THE UK and to promote and preserve the good health of MUSLIMS in the UK.

    NO WHERE IS IT FOUND THAT THE MUSLIM DOCTORS AND DENTISTS HAVE AS THEIR PRIME OBJECTIVE THE GOOD HEALTH OF THE NON MUSLIM BRITISH PEOPLE- in fact- the British people in general are not even given a mention as only muslims are a worthwhile. It is obvious that this lack of concern, by muslim doctors, for non muslim patients in not exclusive just to the UK but would extend worldwide.

    Just think if the British Medical Association had a statement that British doctors should prioritize non-muslim British people –one can imagine the throngs of muslims pouring into our streets with angry contorted faces screaming and demanding.

    What is even more alarming is that the British Medical Association, by its silence, is condoning the clearly discriminatory behaviours of the moslem doctors – as stated in their M.D.D.A. UK Constitution. It is also disgusting that no government official or news media has even investigated this clear evidence of discrimination.

    So please keep the below in mind the next time you go to your muslim doctor or dentist and remember that he does not place YOU or YOUR HEALTH as a priority. Muslim’s come first by their very own “code of (un) ethics”.
