Miss Slackistan and the Burka Beauties vs. the Racism Police
What’s gone wrong with Britain’s sense of humor? How Miss Slackistan and the Burka Beauties fell foul of the racism zealots.
It probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Stuck for inspiration about what to wear at their village carnival, one group made a last-minute decision to dress up in mock Muslim burkas.
Calling themselves the “Page Three Beauties from the Ramalama Ding-Dong Times”, the 17 men and women carried placards with made-up names such as “Miss Hairyarmpitsbad”, “Miss Slackistan”, “Miss Notbadinbedabad” and “Miss Reallyamanistan”.
As they walked the one-mile parade route, the group knelt down in mock prayer and used fake compasses to try to find Mecca.
Their routine impressed carnival judges - a mayor, two district councillors and a parish councillor - and they were shortlisted for the “best entry” prize.
But before any awards were handed out, police told the group to leave after complaints about racism.
