Government think tank misunderstands what it is to be British

According to Sayeeda Warsi, the Conservative spokesman on community cohesion, a UK Government think tank report which proposes to downgrade Christmas displays "a breathtaking misunderstanding of what it is to be British."

Quoted in a report in the Daily Mail of 1st November 2007, she added:

"You don't build community cohesion by throwing out our history and denying the fundamental contribution Christianity has played and does play to our nation.

"As a British Muslim I can see that - so why others can't just staggers me."
And she attacked ceremonies to mark the registration of a baby.

"The thought of Gordon Brown sharing responsibility with me for bringing up my children sends a shiver down my spine. I thought we got rid of communism?"
