Also swimming pools, i have had to leave a swimming pool once cause a muslim class was about to take swimming lessons. This was a regulation introduced by the local authority to favour "good community relations".....
Parents of the children only wante muslims in the pool at that given time.
????? Discrimination is not lawful in the UK unless it can be legally justified

I would have thought the ban at the BCA was due to serving alcohol but Egyptians can go into hotel bars in Egypt I think?

I presume the EHRC is referring to the positive action provisions under the Equality Act which apply in limited circumstances.

The equalities legislation in the UK is required to comply with EU legislation. All member states of the EU are required to comply with that legislation so the criticisms you make aren't just applicable to Britain....

The uk equality legislation was introduced together with the human rights bill which was made up by an evil creature called Cherie Bliar with the help of another legal profession crook ie mr Trevor Philips. It isn independent of the EU.

The EU cannot be blamed for every legal disaster that happens in the UK ie, non deportation of bogus asylum seekers that run over 9 year old girls.

Granted that the EU impose many regulations but they don't always have to be applied. Take healthcare for example, in the UK I can just land and get me and my family looked after by the NHS for free without having paid a penny in the system, try doing that in France or Italy. Other countries require private healthcare cover before being granted residency. And all of these countries are in the EU, like the UK.

Also on the subject of discrimination I wonder what would have happened if a member of the "religion of peace" would have been refused entry to a meeting which included white british women

Not true regarding the Equalities Act - I can quote the EU Articles and Directives if you want as well as the European Convention of Human Rights but it would be rather boring.... Cherie Blair had nothing to do with either the Equalities Act or the Human Rights Act - they were passed by acts of parliament

Am not blaming the EU. Am not sure which case you are referring to regarding deportation of asylum seekers

EU legislation does have to be applied - again long and boring but there is extensive caselaw on this as well as procedures the EU bodies can follow when member states don't comply with the legislation. Am not sure what your reference is to free healthcare in the UK. As far as I am aware provision of healthcare is not covered by EU legislation provided nationals of other EU member states can access it on a non-discriminatory basis.

EU legislation does not have to be applied.
I can provide evidence of the different healthcare policies applying in the respective state health systems. As a foreigner in France or Italy you are not automatically entitled to healthcare, you have to purchase private healthcover for a period of time before being allowed into the local nhs. In fact you have to provide proof of private healthcare cover before being granted residency never mind access to healthcare.

In terms of the HRA Cherie Bliar lobbied for this to be introduced and she was instrumental in bringing this into parliament. I can quote several articles from the Guardian who I beleive is rather close to her husban's political party.

For the bogus asylum seeker I am referring to Mr Aso Mohammed Ibrahim and his case.
