The Muslim vote
This, in my humble opinion, is why Muslims are allowed to get away with what they damn well like. They whine, they whinge, they demand, they burn things, they threaten, they march, they complain, they believe everything should go their way because of some deluded belief in a sky fairy, and their particular seventh-century interpretation of what that sky fairy wants them to do.
We see again how the OIC (Organisation of the Islamic Conference) countries are making demands on the United Nations, who may well introduce a blasphemy law (or strong guidance) worldwide (just after the archaic and risible nonsense has been scrapped in the UK, thank goodness!).
Now we learn from our Daily Telegraph – among others, no doubt – that MPs (Members of Parliament) are afraid to speak out on such things as forced marriage in case they offend the Muslims, and, of course, lose their votes. Which strikes me as the fault of Muslim areas that are too concentrated on the one hand, and, on the other hand, gutless MPs who put their jobs before their principles.
I might add that, if MPs of all stripes decided that they would commonly fight the Muslim threat to Western values with whatever legislation could fairly and humanely be brought into existence, then the votes issue would cease to be such. There would simply be laws saying no forced marriages; no special privileges for religions reasons; no kowtowing to "sensitivities" over whether pigs, say, are featured in kids' schoolbooks; no halal meat (it is permitted to use this barbaric form of slaughter in the UK, but only for Muslim slaughtermen, and likewise for Jewish ones to produce kosher meat); no permission to wear bin bags (sorry, burkas) if you're in, say, a medical environment; no special fiscal arrangements so they can have their sharia credit cards; no wailing from an electrically enhanced muezzin blaring over our cities to call the faithful (gullible) to prayer; no special pleading by Muslims when our emergency services need to put life and limb before religion (see also this); and I could go on, but I'll stop there.
Grrrrr! Spit! Hiss!
