Doctors give in to Muslims

Daily Express reported Health chiefs believe the sight of food will upset Muslim workers when they are celebrating the religious festival Ramadan.
It might make them hungry, but that should just enhance the religious experience.
The lunch trolley is also to be wheeled out of bounds as the 30-day fast begins next month. But staff and politicians branded the move political correctness gone mad and warned that it was a step too far.
Maybe several steps too far.
Bill Aitken, the Scottish Conservative justice spokesman, said: “This advice, well-meaning as it may be, is total nonsense. “It is the sort of thing that can stir up resentment rather than result in good relations.”
Precisely. Give that man a ham sandwich.
