That £1m Icons of England website is still going...
The pro-fox-hunting lobby went to town after the Countryside Alliance signposted the fox-hunting nomination on its home page - word spread quickly and thousands of votes were received. Opponents of blood sports have expressed their concern at this support for fox-hunting - an activity now declared illegal - but many report they did not realise people can vote against nominations as well as in favour of them. The vote is changing hourly (both for and against) as more people get to hear about the controversial debate surrounding this nomination. The fox, itself, has also been nominated and is attracting votes in its own right.
ICONS partners, the Foundation for Science, Technology & Civilisation has opened its 1001 Muslim Inventions touring exhibition at Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry (www.icons.org.uk/introduction/partners/1001).
A book and website is also being launched - www.1001inventions.com
Information about our Muslim heritage is featured on the ICONS website from March onwards. You can find out how the Muslim world handed down many things we take for granted nowadays like clocks, architecture and libraries.
Teachers packs and education posters are available.
So please vote against Fox Hunting and celebrate "our Muslim Heritage" and all the wonderful things Muslims have given us like the English countryside, paintings, songs, poetry, the three piece suit, the tie, pubs, three day eventing, community, fine buildings, bloodlines and the healthiest fox population in the world - no sorry, that is Fox hunting that did that, Muslims gave us something else, I must go and find out what.
