Huge anti-terror barriers are erected outside Birmingham Christmas market amid fears Muslims will celebrate Yuletide

Huge concrete security barriers have been put in place to protect visitors to one of the world’s largest Christmas fairs from terror attacks.

Birmingham city council installed the large concrete bollards throughout the city centre overnight in an effort to keep visitors safe as they enjoy the annual Christmas market, returning to the city on November 16.

It comes as security measures are increased during the festive period to help prevent similar attacks to the one in Berlin, that left 12 people dead, last year.

    This will hurt the feelings of mahometans. Perhaps they could put some tinsel around the bollards, and change the name to Winterval Market.

      Clearly Christmas must be banned so as not to offend any Muslims. Not to do so is a clear sign of Islamophobia!

        I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that it will come to that: it is a matter of time and, more specifically, demographics.

      Don’t give Justine any ideas. He will definitely be using that name or similar for his Christmas greetings this year as in “Happy Winterval Holidays” Canada like he did calling Thanksgiving “Autumn Festival”.

      • Why don’t we just forget his birthday?

        After all, there is someone infinitely more interesting and useful than he to remember.

          Unfortunately, the date is December 25, 1971 which nobody is supposed to forget.

    This is further proof that current immigration policies are a good thing. Look at the employment being created in manufacturing and installing security barriers, manning security inspection stations, arresting transgressors, the justice system, prison workers, social workers & journalists to report the crimes.

      Plenty of new security jobs at leisure venues, and not just for the holidays.

        The majority of security firms are operated by muslims

      See – the politicians were right and the dumb average people were wrong (and dumb): islam leads to economic prosperity and jobs for everyone (except muslims who get paid to do nothing)! Let’s celebrate our leaders’ wisdom and foresight.

      Yes! Boom times for security industries!

      A mere university speech by a conservative creates $600K in GDP for security. Ask Ben Shapiro.

      The price of izzzlam is worth the treasure we spend to barricade ourselves .

  • Del Evans

    The cost of islam.

  • QiPo

    islam may lose on the physical battlefield for now, but on the FISCAL battlefield you cannot possibly spend enough or do enough to ever be safe again. Which leaves few, and possibly only one, options left. Europe will figure it out when they run out of money or cemetery space.

    But a wall around the country – thats RAAAAAACIST!

      They probably rent the damn things out every time there is a street fair or something.

      These are the kind of jobs that didn’t exist before all the cool immigration.

    Merkel’s lego.

    How cute, the British authorities are pretending they don’t think their citizens are expendable. Of course, they would never dream of admitting the real reasons why such things are even needed.

    Cheap bastards; the least they could have done is slapped a fresh coat of paint on them.*
    Is some of that mess on them, visible in the photo, gore from a previous ‘adventure’?

    (*Something festive maybe? Those small twinkly LED lights would have been a nice touch, and maybe a bit of Holly?)

  • This is bullsh– and will not be effective against terrorists with indiscriminate weapons like vest bombs.

    It’s simple. Remove the reasons for those barriers and then the barriers themselves.
