My tyre-fitter tried to recruit me as a jihadi bride

The last time I bought a set of tyres in south London I came away not quite knowing whether I had just been asked to become a jihadi bride.

Of course, it was only the merest suspicion. If I had had hard evidence I might have gone to the police. Or I might not. These days, one is likely to get done for a hate crime if one complains about a member of the opposite religion. If I had gone to the police what would I have said?

    One of those tyre-grooming shops I’ve been hearing about. A couple of drinks and she probably would have went for it.

    I had a dry cleaner and a taxi driver try to convert me, but neither included veiled offers of marriage. Now I feel slighted.

    The guy who migrated my software from my old company laptop to the new one a few years ago, spent several minutes attempting to convert me to Islam, left my office to go and pray during the migration and told me that Jews will all burn in Hell as unbelievers. The next day I called his employer and filed a complaint. His manager said all of their employees receive behaviour training and that this particular individual will be “retrained”.

    I wonder when the Canadian Ministry of Heritage will start handing out Dawah grants?
