Should Britain’s Ethnic Minorities Have Their Own TV Dance Contests?
THERE were renewed calls last night for Britain's ethnic minorities to have their own celebrity dancing competitions.
As Strictly Come Dancing became immersed in its latest ethnic conflict, fans of the show said it was yet more evidence that the races will never successfully integrate, either in ballroom or Latin.
Margaret Gerving, a Strictly viewer from Guildford, said: "There were never any rows in the original series of Come Dancing.
"I'm not saying it was perfect but everyone got along, there was less crime and you did not see long queues of indigenous British dancers at the employment exchange."
She added: "I've got nothing against the coloured people but they do not dance the same way as us. They dance in a messy, smelly way and their food tastes awful.
"Let them have their own dancing competitions. In their own countries."
Mohammed Iqbal, chairman of the British Association of Muslim Ballroom Dancers, called for segregated state schools so that young Asians could learn the foxtrot in accordance with the Koran, while understanding the moral degeneracy of Western dance steps.
He added: "Young muslim men need to retain their distinctive ballroom identity, while young muslim women should learn how to dance while wearing a floor length hessian sack and doing the dishes."
Meanwhile commentator Peter Hitchens, writing in the Mail on Sunday said: "Once again we are confronted with the catastrophic failure of the soft-headed multi-culturalism that began in the 1960s, that era of trendy, irresponsible dance-based policy making.
"But will the BBC finally have the guts to tell immigrant dancers to change their name and paint themselves beige? Don't count on it."
