For some reason, talk of ‘loyalty tests’ for ‘religious organisations’ (ie, Muslims) really disturbs me. Following Germany’s lead, the Grauniad reports that UK PM Tony “The Poodle” Blair is calling on British religious groups who receive government funding to ‘prove their committment to integration’ (whatever that means). Blair also reignited the headscarf controversy, stating it was “plain common sense” for teachers to remove headscarves in the classroom. What’s next – crescent moon armbands?
Perhaps India Knight is on to something.
