What do you make of the news that group of British Muslims have opposed plans for a pet food factory to be built as possible pork emissions will violate their religious rights?




Butchers Pet Care could shelve plans for a factory in Coton Park, near Rugby, because angry Asian families (are there any other sort these days?) have complained to their residents’ association about pork smells drifting into their garden. Muslim residents in the area also claim the pork will effectively “rain down” on their homes and gardens after the factory’s 100ft chimney has pumped the meat extracts into the atmosphere. The Coton Park Residential Association said they have received complaints from Muslims – who are directed to not eat pork by the Qur’an – and are taking the matter very seriously.

If you read the link you will se that these Muslim objections are being taken very seriously indeed and I bet the factory will not be built. Once again we see assertive Muslims dictating the new nature of our society and whilst the issue of a location of a pet food factory may seem trivial, we would be barking mad to go along with their intolerance. No one is asking them to EAT the petfood, although I wonder if they own dogs and if so what do they feed them? British Muslims are making a concerted power drive to change our society, presenting their “religious rights” as the trump card.

  1. No worries, it only makes the rest of us detest them more than we already do.

  2. Why should this area be deprived of employment opportunities because of a baseless hostility to the product by a minority people who clearly see themselves as more entitled to privilege than the indigenous people are entitled to opportunity? the English did not show such an imbalanced sensitivity when Christians were opposed to being legally bound to dealing with the homosexual community.

  3. Dogs are impure; driving planes into buildings isn’t.

    Mmm, strange creed.

  4. Dogs are being used successfully to keep Muslims out of clubs and bars in Northern Europe by simply stationing one at the door. Before when door staff tried to exercise the necessary ‘no tanned chaps’ policy they had (those charming) human rights lawyers lining up to ensure Achmed and his ‘boys’ was afforded the full liberty to partake in coward gang attacks and sexual abuse in native socialising facilities, a characteristic Mohammedan behaviour statistics show is endemic, and which the Mussel men and Islam itself must bear corporate responsibility for.

  5. To be honest, if anyone was proposing to put a pet food factory anywhere near me I’d be protesting too.

    Not because of the risk of contamination by pork, but because they stink to high heaven!

    That said, complaining about it because of their "religious rights" is absurd.

    Anyone fancy a barbecue?

    The location will be outside a Rugby mosque on a Friday afternoon and food will consist of pork sausages, bacon, gammon, pork chops and a cold buffet including pork pies, scotch eggs and pork scratchings.

  6. how about pork based anti-rape pants to save women folk from Moors in places where the in menfolk appear to lack the minimals ?

  7. Nice idea, Juan.

    I wonder what the UN stance is on pork based chemical weapons?

    If the RAF started dropping cannisters of exploding SPAM over the Taleban lines would that contravene the Geneva Convention?

  8. A Fatwa on Fido’s Food? What kind of newspaper was the article printed in (I found it odd that they seem to have used a stock photo of a muslim woman instead of an area resident).

    We just had a company here in Times Square in Manhattan cover up the bottoms of models in a billboard hung near a Christian Church. Indeed, I think most of the strip club laws in the City of New York prevent them from being within a certain distance of schools (good idea) and churchs (thus causing inconvenience to untold numbers of clergy).

    Some religious accomodations are normal over on this side of the pond (we have alternate side of the street parking in New York for numerous religious holidays and I couldn’t even identify a third of the Catholic ones).

    Perhaps there is a valid concern about the odors (anyone living near a factory will tell you so) and the community is playing its strongest hand to try to avoid them.

  9. it was ‘the times’ mahons, – one of our most respected broad sheets (as in papers of record)

    we have to put with cell phone masts, chimneys, car exhausts, some of the most dense air traffic in the world and umpteen unpleasant factory smells.

    some of us even have to live near fields where farmers spray dung.

    your point of ‘playing the strongest hand’ – in that this particular concern will be obstructed in the name of the concerns of a special privilege group – when the normal concrens of NIMBYs (Not In My Back Yard’s) are usually treated with frank contempt is, as far as I can see, the cause for complaint.

  10. Juan: Looked like some paper called the Daily Mail (is that the same?).

    I don’t know if their complaint is valid or not. Curious coverage to me.

  11. This reminds me of a story a while back when a pub landlord got an Asbo for calling his pub car park the "Porking Yard". A reference to the pork industry that had formed the financial back bone of the area in question for some years. Of course the local ROP agitators were up in arms. Quelle surprise!

    Hey Stan – let’s have a pig race, too!

  13. "Looked like some paper called the Daily Mail (is that the same?)."

    Not quite.

    The Daily Mail would be somewhat more reactionary than most newspapers.

  14. ‘reactionary’.

    That’s the term used by politically correct sections of British society to slam anything that dares to tell the truth about the situation in this country – especially as regards race issues.

  15. "Hey Stan – let’s have a pig race, too!"

    When I was young, my school fete would have a "win a pig" contest every year. I never won. (You didn’t get to take the pig home, the local butcher would slaughter it and prepare the various cuts for you – all for nothing!).

    They don’t do that anymore. I wonder why?

  16. I’m not too keen on the smell of curry emanating from Indian restaurants and other establishments, but I just have to put up with it.

  17. Anon: Really? If there was a paper factory (if you’ve smelled one you know how bad they are) are you telling me there are no zoning provisions and other such things in the UK to deal with reducing their impact on residential areas?

  18. There used to be a paper mill not far from me. It wasn’t that bad unless you actually went into it and even then it was bearable – but a pet food factory …..

    Of the places I’ve had to visit in the course of my work, pet food factories come second only to sewage works. Truly stomach churning.

    Even so, I still think it’s ridiculous to claim religious rights as a reason to oppose it.

  19. Stan: There was a paper mill outside of Portland Maine that I thought was one of the worst smells ever. Plenty of religions object to all sorts of things here in the States. I wonder if there would be such a rucus if it wasn’t a Muslim complaint.

  20. — I wonder if there would be such a rucus if it wasn’t a Muslim complaint. —

    It’s not just a complaint by people who happen to be Muslims about the fact that the plant would smell.

    Its a complaint that the existence of this facility does not comply with the dicates of their religion. Big difference.

    Lots of places can produce pork smells, including a restaurant/takeaway/butcher shop where pork/sausage is cooked, processed or served.

    If you give in to this complaint, expressed in this fashion, you’ll quickly be on the road to restrictions on the sale and production of pork in the UK.

    Don’t go there.

  21. ‘Reactionary’.

    Oh Reg, you really were born in the wrong country, at the wrong time…maybe if someone invents Time Travel you can nip back to 1930’s Russia, you’d fit right in my son.

  22. "maybe if someone invents Time Travel you can nip back to 1930’s Russia, you’d fit right in my son."

    Good grief. So anyone who thinks the Mail is a tad reactionary is a Stalinist.

    It’s not like the Right to make hysterical over-statements!

  23. The story panders to the ignorance and racist. The true story about the factory and the protests is below. No mention of Muslims at all – just residents who don’t want the factory built in their back yard.

    Middle England’s March of Death

    RUGBY, England, June 16 /PRNewswire/ —

    – With Photo

    Five hundred residents of a sleepy executive housing estate from Rugby, Warwickshire, walked in silence this morning, wearing black clothes and dust masks to protest against a planned pet food factory on their doorstep.

    Residents were joined by local business leaders and politicians, including Rugby MP Mr Jeremy Wright. The March of Death was organised to highlight the fatal consequences for the local environment if plans to build a 150,000 sq ft factory are approved.

    In preparing their pet foods, Butchers Pet Care boil offal and other meat extracts 24 hours a day in their industrial sized cookers.

    The site is proposed for a 150,000ft pet food factory, on the edge of the Coton Park housing estate. A planning application has been submitted but the newly formed Coton Park Residents Association is fiercely opposing the application.

    Michael Moran, spokesperson for the Coton Park Residents Association said, "We hope the Walk of Death will be a strong message to Rugby Borough Council and Butcher’s Pet Care. People living in Crick, where the factory is currently based, have had an awful time with the smell of burning flesh for many years. We are demanding the proposals are scrutinised by independent experts. Thus far every impact study has been paid for and commissioned by the applicants".
