The Whores of England
MPs face a six-year drinking ban after a committee decided they will move to an office block operating under Islamic laws while the Palace of Westminster is refurbished.How can an office building in England be operating under Islamic law?
Their new home, Richmond House in Whitehall, was transferred to finance an Islamic bond scheme in 2014.Islamic bond? You see, interest on loans is banned under Islam. So, they just come up with some retarded methods to arrive at the money: rental income, in this case.
In June 2014 George Osborne announced that Britain was launching the first Islamic bond scheme in the non-Muslim world.
Three Government buildings in Whitehall were transferred to Islamic bonds, switching the ownership from British taxpayers to wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen and banks.Voila! Stealth sharia.
The bonds – known as Sukuk – are only available for purchase by Islamic investors. The Treasury agreed to make the sukuk fully compliant with Sharia law to ensure investors were not put off investing in the scheme, meaning each of the buildings used to finance the products must meet the terms of Sharia law, including the ban on alcohol.The people in the British government who agreed to this should be publicly flogged -- not to worry, that's sharia compliant.
A commenter, Old un, at the news site:
On this basis will all female MPs have to wear a burka, niqab and walk a respectable three paces behind any male counterpart?It would be racisss not to.
