Public pool bars father & son from 'muslim-only' swimming session
Member of staff cocks up, Mail readers froth at the mouth.
What I find sad is that Great Britain is no longer "British".

Welcome to gutless, spineless England.

That's racial and religious discrimination and he should sue the council on both counts and for psychological and emotional damage. Strange sort of reverse apartheid being practised in England, and so soon after South Africa overturned theirs. The explanation sounds like a bit of back covering as well.

Do they have Christian only swimming sessions in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia?
- Mike Randall, Worcester, England
Actually they do have Christian only sessions at swimming pools in Saudi Arabia. I am Jewish and me and another Muslim man were turned away from a pool in Jeddah because it had been hired out by a local Christian group. Males and females are always segregated as well.

A simple error blown up out of all proportion.

Anne Oswald, it is the views of people like you who stick their heads in the sand that are fostering the breakdown of this country.
- John, Poole
Well that's Anne told!
