Vote For Sharia Law In The UK

The Express leads with news of Sharia law and how a court in Dewberry, West Yorkshire, is called the Sharee Council.

In no way is Sharee, sorry, Cherie Blair thought to be involved with this local judiciary, a “draconian court system” run by “Muslim radicals”.

And Dewsberry, as the Express notes, is the very place where 7/7 bomber Mohammed Siddique Khan lived.

Good of the Express to highlight this legal pluralism which binds communities on civil matters within their own religious codes. These courts of arbitration may be quicker and cheaper than more traditional British courts.

And, of course, these courts show how important the rule of law is even when a nutcase like Khan is doing his damnedest to undo it.

“Should Muslims have their own law here?” asks the Express in its daily phone poll. The clear answer is ‘Yes’. But readers should not get ahead of themselves.

We should listen to both sides of the argument, for this is the way of things. Leo McKinstry agrees to be the Express’s Devil’s Advocate.
