Nice and stealthy does it..

For all its implied significance, The Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill has attracted scant interest from our mainstream media, other than this article in the Guardian with its emphasis on the rights of Muslim women.

As a Private Members Bill, the proposed legislation is unlikely to see the light of day but it is probably surplus to requirements anyway: the bill's primary focus is on establishing the primacy of British law over the creeping influence of Sharia and should be dealt with in parliament by amending or revoking the legislation that enables the existence of a parallel system of law.

Having quietly permitted the EU to conquer us, it would seem that our politicians and media are conspiring to allow Islam to do the same. Don't expect the BBC or the press to tell you about the revolution. Fortunately, you can find out a little more from the American media here.

  1. I'm very interested to know what the precedent would be if a Shariah ruling were to be accepted in the law courts. What would be the criteria to introducing any new legal system once a ruling had been upheld? I'm drafting a few new laws now...

    You're spot on about the BBC. You learn more from what they leave out than from what they decide is news.
