Right-wing politician Andrea Glarner has offered to donate 2,000 Cervelat sausages to Swiss schoolchildren after their teachers asked parents to avoid bringing pork to an end-of-term picnic.
"I don't wish to force Muslim children to eat pork," said Glarner, a member of the nationalist Swiss People's Party (SVP), "but we cannot have our children denied Cervelat!"
His rallying cry for Switzerland's national sausage came in response to an incendiary Facebook post earlier this week, in which the MP claimed that a "disappointed mother" had called him to complain that an unidentified youth group in the canton of Aargau had "banned Cervelat for Swiss children because of Muslims".
"Swiss people, wake up!", Glarner urged, setting his Facebook status to "feeling enraged".
