The changing face of the cotswolds (3)

Following my earlier post in this series, it would appear the story is “hotting up” with the threat of arson now rearing its head.

One aspect of this story on which I have not commented previously is to do with the fact that West Oxfordshire District Council only received 28 objections with a further 2 submissions in support. Is this, one wonders, because people are afraid to protest fearing that they may be classified as racist?

Thus are people “cowed” and thus the programme of social engineering continues.

Just saying…….

    Simple stuff: when it’s empty, blow it up. Make one of those 28 objections mean something.

    As I understand it this is simply a “change of use” application with no proposal to alter the exterior of the building. If that is the case then I fail to see what all the fuss is about. The call to prayer will only happen five times a day and it can sound quite musical first thing in the morning around 5am I believe. It is when they erect those very tall minaret things and start wailing from the top of them that you have to start worrying and in Chipping Norton I’m sure that’s at least five years away.

    Its a measure of how far down the rabbit hole we have fallen to admit that if I lived there and felt like making an objection to it that I would think long and hard about doing so, knowing that my name and address would be made public by so doing. Not because I’m worried about what people think but because you just never know now what could happen.

    Put it this way – I suspect if objections could be made anonymously, or at least without the details being made public, then there would be lot more than 28 objectors.

      Yup, you are right on the anonymity aspect. A recent poll in Germany about the ethnicity of their vice-chancellor and whether a homosexual should become chancellor achieved about 25% don’t knowns – which one comment on the article suggested may well comprise those who agreed that a homosexual chancellor would be a step too far, but did not wish to say so.
