Newsnight is asking a question tonight: is the reaction to the Archbishop of Canterbury's comments on Sharia Law Islamophobic? There is a one word answer to that question. No.
Why is it that we cannot talk about issues of religion and race without people immediately jumping on a politically correct bandwagon?
I don't want any form of Sharia Law in this country at all. Ever. That is not being Islamaphobic. It's my opinion and it's one shared by 99 per cent of the British people, as well as, I suspect, by the majority of British Muslims.. Sharia Law has nothing in common with British values and parts of it could fairly be desribed as downright evil. Anyone who believes that women and men are equal in the eyes of society and the law could not countenance it.
Rowan Williams was misguided and wrong. Simple as that. And the reaction across the political spectrum has demonstrated it in very graphic terms.
