Sharia in Britain: ignoring common sense

Long after the horse has bolted the political elites in Britain have now decided to “get tough” on Sharia and radicalisation. But ordinary Britons saw the dangers long ago. All you had to do was use common sense. That was far too much to ask

Government is planning tough new measures to combat the growing threat from Islamist extremists in Britain. So reported the Sunday Telegraph, having seen a leaked draft of the Home Office’s new counter-extremism strategy.

The tough new strategy ranges from targeting sharia courts to changes to the benefits system and measures to deal with radicalisation.

If Mr Cameron thinks the British people will be impressed by all this he is mistaken. It’s an almost certain bet that the vast majority of British people will be totally cynical of these new proposals to fight extremism.

The British people now understand that the Westminster political classes have for years been contemptuous of public opinion on many issues concerning Islam in Britain.

Consider sharia courts, for example. The British people never wanted anything to do with sharia law. They never wanted any recognition of sharia authority in their country.

Yet successive British governments ignored public opinion and turned a blind eye to the gradual setting-up of (so far) over 80 sharia courts, or “councils”, as they are more euphemistically called.

      The United Kingdom is now the United Kaliphate in more ways than one. Winston Churchill’s legacy is all but extinct, with very few exceptions.

        If I had the money, I would visit now before the Louvre is burned down and armed sharia jeeps patrol Rome.

    How about Zero immigration for starters?

    Immigration used to be a way to import needed workers and/or populate an empty-ish place like the US west. None of those problems exist now, anywhere.

    But elites like the cheap workers and enthusiastic shoppers, so immoderate immigration continues even though national security is endangered by certain tribes.

    The one thing mooslims do not have is common sense. Everything has to be laid down and legislated for them, ‘cos they cannot think for themselves. Baaa. Baaa!!!
