The reversal of the ancient
custom of "When in Rome, do as the Romans do"
has reached new heights in Britain. Bigamy is still apparently a crime there, but if a man has accumulated several wives in a nation where such things are legal, then that arrangement will be honored in the land of Churchill.
Not only that, but multi-wifing will multiply the welfare benefits for Muslim families, an advantage that traditional British people will not receive.
Husbands with multiple wives have been given the go-ahead to claim extra welfare benefits following a year-long Government review, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.Even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, the decision by ministers means that polygamous marriages can now be recognised formally by the state, so long as the weddings took place in countries where the arrangement is legal.The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife, as is permitted under Islamic law. Ministers estimate that up to a thousand polygamous partnerships exist in Britain, although they admit there is no exact record. [...]Income support for all of the wives may be paid directly into the husband`s bank account, if the family so choose. Under the deal agreed by ministers, a husband with multiple wives may also be eligible for additional housing benefit and council tax benefit to reflect the larger property needed for his family.The ruling could cost taxpayers millions of pounds. Ministers launched a review of the benefit rules for polygamous marriages in November 2006, after it emerged that some families had benefited financially.

And while the society is remaking itself to accommodate its demanding Islamic immigrants, a leading education group has decided that Britain`s history is "morally ambiguous" and not worthy of citizens` loyalty. Therefore schools should cease presenting national traditions in a positive way: â€?Donâ€™t teach children patriotismâ€™
It`s sad to see cultural suicide proceeding with such determination.
