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.
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.
