Channel 4 Ramadan row a smokescreen

Last week’s scary headline, contrary to what you may have heard, wasn’t this:

Why Channel 4’s plan to air the daily Muslim call to prayer during Ramadan is a divisive and cynical stunt

It was this:

True toll of mass migration on UK life: Half of Britons suffer under strain placed on schools, police, NHS and housing

You have a certain community living in your country, how ungracious is it not to afford them a proportionate voice somewhere in your TV landscape?

The size of that and other communities in proportion to the indigenous population, on the other hand, or to infrastructure and services, now there’s the rub.

How many time must it be spelt out? It’s not about race, it’s about numbers. And if this country had the numbers under any semblance of control, I doubt the Ramadan broadcast controversy would have got any further than first base.
