Sharia creep

The London Islamic Zone (LIZ to its friends) is creeping west. Just over the border in the Borough of Islington (LIZ is basically the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest) lies the Metropolitan University of London, whose vice-chancellor (the overall boss man, for those not familiar with British universities, the actual chancellor being a purely ceremonial role) one Professor Malcolm Gillies, is proposing to designate some parts of the campus as no-alcohol and no-talk-about-sex areas. This is to make the University more muslim-friendly.

Met U is especially popular with female muslim students living inside the LIZ. This is because, as the Prof notes, many are taken to university by a close male relative; which indicates a hardline muslim attitude in the home. These female students are effectively prisoners allowed out for education on a day-release basis. Their families zealously guard their innocence, especially their complete innocence of the concepts of equality and female emancipation.

Only about 20% of the student body at Met U is muslim, but it seems the 80% must bend to accommodate the minority in this instance, at least according to the Prof.

Perhaps strangely though, no muslim has actually asked for these concessions to be made. The vice-chancellor has taken it upon himself to suggest them. When means the title of this post may be inappropriate - it's not sharia creeping here, it's the vice-chancellor being a creep!

I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn't mind composing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write regarding here. Again, awesome blog!

Thanks for your support. Unfortunately since this is an anonymous blog I don't publish an email address so it would be difficult for you to send me content.

However you are welcome to develop though own thoughts in the comments, or you could write on your own blog and I'd link across to you.

(In fact readers can write what they like in the comments, I always approve comments unless they are mechanically generated spam, regardless of whether the writer agrees or disagrees with what I say, even if they insult me since as far as I'm concerned that just reflects badly on them.)
