University to have alcohol-free areas for Muslims

Prof Malcolm Gillies of London Metropolitan University said he wants to create alcohol free areas on campus out of “cultural sensitivity”.

OK, I’m confused. Does that university have mandatory alcohol drinking areas within the campus? Since I’m fairly sure that even the marketing class doesn’t sell beer in the classroom during school hours, then the dorms and the University clubs are the only places he could be talking about. So he’s going to ban the sale of beer and wine at the “Rathskeller” and prohibit bringing any alcohol into the University owned dorms, is that what he’s proposing? Those clubs, how old is that tradition? It’s  as old as the university I imagine.

What about the returning veterans who are going to the university after serving England overseas, do they have to put up with this crap?

Works for England too.

Notice: Some may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as often. That’s true and mainly the reason is depression. It’s been a year since my wife passed away and I’ve found that I miss her more each day.

I don’t know where I’m going in my life and can’t summon up the will to make definite plans. This blog has helped in a way, but the lack of any real response in the form of comments to the posts or reposting by other blogs makes me feel it may not be worth the time.

There are no current pictures from the last two kayak trips because I just felt like paddling and thinking, not thinking about shooting pictures. I think I may take a trip up north before the prices go up with the warmer weather.  If I can afford the gas.

Happy Tax Day.
