Interesting little quote at the end of an article about yesterday’s defeat of some sections of the Government’s hate law bill in the Commons yesterday.

BBC News: Arts world hails hate law defeat:

Britain’s first Muslim MP, Labour’s Mohammed Sarwar, said the result would be a disappointment to those of all faiths.

He said: “It would have been beneficial not only to Muslims but to those of other faiths and of none. It is very unfortunate.”

Speaking as a committed Christian, I’m delighted, thank you very much. Let’s not presume to speak for anyone but your constituents, Mr Sarwar.
