Britain goes down the Muslim appeasement toilet

In the latest act of pandering from the UK, a shopping mall in Rochdale has installed special Muslim-only toilets (via The Astute Bloggers):
FURY has erupted after a shopping centre became the first in Britain to introduce Muslim-only toilets.

The Middle Eastern-style squat holes, just a hole in the ground, are common in Asia.

Two of the £200 “Nile pan” units have been put into the Exchange shopping centre in Rochdale, where one in five people is Asian.

But locals have blasted them as a waste of cash. One angry resident, Ellen Dean, 49, fumed: “I work in a bookies here and everyone who comes in is up in arms about them.

“They are totally unnecessary. Even the majority of the Muslims here don’t seem to want them.

“Most of the people of Rochdale won’t be able to use them and I guarantee elderly people will be totally confused by them.”

[...]

In 2007 bakery giant Greggs installed similar toilets at their Scottish headquarters, despite the fact that no Muslims worked there.
That's the really hilarious thing about the UK: they'll do it even if no one asks for them. As told in this article:
Rochdale is a town with a large Asian community and managers at the shopping complex regularly go on cultural awareness courses, according to the spokeswoman for the centre.

During the last course bosses at the shops suggested the idea of hole in the ground-type squat toilets to their Asian trainer on the course and there was an enthusiastic response, the spokeswoman said.
I'm sure that for every Muslim who didn't like them, there was one who did; let's not think it didn't happen.

And "cultural awareness" is more like cultural sensitivity, the more precise description of this farce.
