Honley Junior School in West Yorkshire was to perform the Roald Dahl story of Little Red Riding Hood and the pigs - but was told to substitute puppies.

Organisers of a children's concert have given the go-ahead for the three little pigs to appear, after they were banned over fears they might offend Muslims.

Pre-emptive dhimmitude anyone?

No complaints had been made about the pigs appearing in the Kirklees Primary Music Festival event.

The committee organising the concert decided Muslim children may not want to sing about pigs.

However, council education spokesman Jim Dodds told BBC Five Live the decision had been overturned.

He said: "There is something barmy going on here and it has happened on my watch.

"I can tell you now that the three little pigs will be back into the school musical festival.

"The decision (to ban the pigs) was made by well-meaning people - it was the wrong decision, so let's stick with the traditions."

From BBC news

These "well-meaning" people can only make life more difficult for the majority of the Muslim community. What a complete embarrassment to this country.

    more annoying than the acts of cultural cringing are the complete absence of protest from ordinary folk. why do most people accept without complaint these insane decisions?

    have we been so cowed by our liberal (actually conservative now)media establishment?
