This story isn't kosher....

1. The Daily Mail publishes a story telling lies.

2. The blogosphere's coterie of professional Muslim-haters like Bonni Benstock-Intall and her mouth-breathing commenters picked up on the story and added their own chorus of racist hatred. (Example from SweetOlBob: "Filthy, whining, demanding, inbred, goat and little boy molesting, female mutilating, marriage forcing, homo hanging, rape victim stoning, wife beating, and non-assimilating muslims !")

3. Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman points out that no school anywhere in Tower Hamlets has "banned" pork products, nor has any been asked to do so. Most of the schools have a majority of Jewish and Muslim pupils; some don't. At the ones with Jewish/Muslim majorities, surprise surprise, there's hardly any demand for pork. At the others, there is: and they eat it. As the mayor writes; "At a time when there are severe pressures on local authority budgets, Why should our council be obliged to waste money on unwanted pork sausages in order to placate the divisive agendas of the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph?" Why indeed?

Truly, a lie can be halfway round the world before the truth has its boots on.
