The United Kingdom has not had a formal written constitution, to which the subjects of the Queen could point to and say, this is our definition of rights. Instead, a large, somewhat amorphous body of case law is pointed to and called “English common law”, and only a few documents are supporting the framework of that law. As such, there is no controlling legal authority, as Al Gore was fond of saying, that is immune to incursions and erosions by foreign influences.
Islamic Shar’ia law is just another large body of case law, but one that is not subject to review or repeal in any way. Once a set of circumstances has been applied, there may be no outcome but condemnation and punishment, with no chance of appeal, except to apply to the mercy of the religious authorities.
Mercy is not justice. Any system of justice that requires mercy as its only escape valve is flawed so severely, it cannot be considered anywhere in the lexicon of human freedom.
Shar’ia law is the very thesis of enslavement. Nowhere in the Koran is there any verse or chapter that corresponds in any way to the Decalogue, or the “Golden Rule”.
Her majesty the Queen has no subjects, we’ve been citizens since 1981.
