WATCH: Tory MP SLAMS Hypocritical Feminist MPs Over Sharia Councils
Conservative MP Philip Davies was met with gasps, jeers and, thankfully, some “hear”s in the House Of Commons during last Wednesday’s Prime Ministers Questions, when he slammed feminist MPs for their hypocrisy surrounding the operation of Islamic Sharia Councils in communities across the UK.
The Shipley MP, who has for years campaigned against Political Correctness, started by saying:
“Mr Speaker, last year I attended a meeting in the House of Lords organised by the wonderful cross-bench Peer and Human Rights campaigner Baroness Cox, at which three very brave women told us their harrowing tales of how they have been treated and discriminated against by Sharia councils.
Mr Davies continued:
“It’s amazing Mr Speaker how noisy feminists in this place are so quiet about this issue when women are being discriminated against so blatantly in this country.
“Isn’t it time, isn’t it time, isn’t it time this alternative, discriminatory form of justice was no longer tolerated in this country?”
Philip was met with a substantial amount of “hears” following the question and by that time the feminists had quietened down.
Theresa May responded:
“Can I say to my honourable friend that we’re very clear – there is one rule of law in the UK and that is British law, and he is right, I myself have also heard stories from individual women who have been discriminated, or felt they have been discriminated against or treated badly as a result of decisions by Sharia Courts. That is why when I was Home Secretary I set up the review into Sharia Courts and that is a review I believe has recently published its report and my right honourable the Home Secretary will be responding to that shortly.”
Many, however, both inside UKIP and outside of it, will believe that this is just all talk from the Prime Minister and that if she and her government really did want to deal with this issue, they would do something about it (i.e. banning Sharia courts and councils), rather than waste taxpayer’s money on pointless reviews and reports.
The government’s weakness on this issue shows just how much UKIP is needed and if we can present our self as the party of law and order, then it could begin to go up in the polls and begin to win elections, whether they’re this May’s local elections, any upcoming by-elections and the next general election, whether that’s in 2022, or earlier.
