We’re seeing some sense, then, it seems.
Today’s Sunday Times tells us that “Gordon Brown's new minister for race relations has attacked sharia courts”.
Sadiq Khan, whose comments will have added impact because he is a Muslim himself, has also warned that the growing number of tribunals based on Islamic codes could entrench discrimination against women.
It’s just what we’ve been saying all along, really. Why aren’t our touchy-feely, PC-soaked politicians waking up to the fact? It could almost be expressed as a syllogysm: a culture treats women like shit; that culture seeks its own legal system; therefore that legal system will treat women like shit.
Gays, too, no doubt.
