Respect for religion has become a code phrase meaning 'fear of religion.' Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect. -Salman Rushdie

Mr Salih of the Islamist website 5Pillars here. You might have seen him on the BBC. He believes in his freedom of speech, just not Salman Rushdie’s.
I would urge Muslims not to go on the mainstream media to talk about the Salman Rushdie attack. There is no way that we can come out of a media appearance without being trapped one way or the other. Remember, we have the right to remain silent.

One year ago we abandoned Afghanistan. Worse than the abandonment is that we don’t REALLY care that we [Biden] abandoned Afghanistan.

Imagine the outrage if Boris had a private helicopter with his face painted on it like eco warrior Sturgeon.

Only problem is GLL who currently run leisure services in Tower Hamlets are a not for profit charitable social enterprise. So not a big ‘evil’ profit making private company as @LutfurRahmanTH wrongly suggests! 🤦‍♂️
The people of Tower Hamlets are more important than profits. I'm thrilled to announce that we've decided to bring our leisure services back in house, a move I know will benefit everyone. 🏊 1/5

Rishi Sunak is no Margaret Thatcher. He imposed a new social care tax, on line tax, excess profits tax. He upped National Insurance, made many Income tax payers pay a higher rate and hiked business tax rate by 31%. As candidate he tries to rebrand as a tax cutter!

As leadership hustings take place, it’s important that our next Prime Minister ⁦@trussliz⁩ ⁦@RishiSunak⁩ ensure the Kept Animal’s Bill continues its passage to become law. It will deliver the Conservative manifesto commitment to ban live exports
