Outrage over BBC’s Sharia-Compliant Christmas

Its two-minute animated epic aired for the first time after Strictly Come Dancing last night.

The advert, called The Supporting Act tells the tale of a 10-year-old girl who practices for a Christmas talent competition day in and day out to give the most important dance performance of her life.

Her dad is always with her but he’s busy, and getting even busier as Christmas approaches.

As she freezes on stage her single parent dad helps out in the final performance.

BBC bosses have described it as “illustrating the joy of a shared moment” but some people have questioned why it doesn’t actually mention Christianity or Christmas values.

Historian Tim Stanley took a swipe at the campaign, claiming it was advertising “Winterval” rather than Christmas.

Writing in the Telegraph, he raged the advert had “absolutely nothing to do with Christ” but admitted he did enjoy the film.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
