Did you hear Abu Izzadeen on the Today programme? If not, the audio may well still be knocking around on the site somewhere.

This govt's lasting lagecy will be the gradual eroding of civil liberties over the last 7 years. I don't really understand where their impetus comes from, because eg: ID cards solve absolutely nothing, cost a fortune and are white elephants.

I've just remembered why I mentioned Izzadeen. The guy's such a brainwashed fundamentalist nut, when John Humphries mentioned becoming involved and working through the demovratic system to create change, he blurted out that Shariah Law is the law of God; democracy is the law of man. A good "muslim" (ie: loony fundamentalist, presumably) should work to create Sharia law in the uk, but ignore democracy, which is a nonsense. I praphrase obviously, but that was more or less what he shouted.




I didn't see his interview, but I read his comments - I don't agree with him, but I don't accept the British Government's position that there's a fifth column that has arisen independently of foreign policy. Sharia does have to exist in public consultation, so it's compatible with democracy...and quite frankly, when you have a diverse culture, it's the least worst way to run a society!
