Scottish criminals are claiming to be Muslim when they're not. No! Surely not? Criminals being dishonest? How can this be? They aren't all politicians. Yet.
Why? Well, because Muslims get special treats. Spicy food, lots of time off for holy days and prayers and so on. The criminals don't take the line favoured by the public (I can't have it so he can't have it either), they take a much more sensible approach (You get special food and breaks? How do I get them too?).
I can't help chuckling over the shock-horror realisation that prisoners might be running a scam. What do you think most of them are in for?
One prison guard said: “This is a growing problem and it is really getting a lot of staff down.
Put me in prison and I'll pretend to be Muslim. I like curries and long break periods. Who would opt for hard work and gruel other than a complete idiot? Sure, someone scrupulously honest wouldn't put 'Muslim' on the form if they weren't Muslim, but if they're so steadfastly moral and law-abiding they're not likely to be in prison. A clue for the clueless: prisoners are, on the whole, less likely to be honest than the general population (excluding politicians).
The problem here is not the dishonesty of criminals. That's pretty much a given. The problem is that certain prisoners are getting preferential treatment. If that wasn't happening there would not be a problem. Oddly, nobody in the press seems to have picked up on that.
All those non-Muslim Muslims are doing is what the Lefty loons have been calling for all along. They are arranging their own 'equality' and they are not doing it by demanding Muslim prisoners lose their treats. They are sidling up to those Muslim prisoners and finding out what they can get if they put 'Muslim' on the form under 'religion'.
As long as one group is favoured over another, everyone is going to pretend they're in the favoured group. Those who are naturally dishonest have a head start in that.
It's not rocket science.
