Somewhere Under the Skies of Wessex

Shoot the Messenger

Following the chaos in Parliament on the 21st, Suella Braverman has voiced her belief that Islamists have taken over Britain. Yesterday, another Tory MP, Lee Anderson disagreed. He said they hadn’t taken over Britain, but Islamists had captured Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London. Naturally he is accused of racism and Islamophobia, but perhaps now we are getting to the point where those in positions of power are prepared to openly accept there is a problem with radical Islam.

Or maybe not. Anderson has been suspended by the Tory party. His intervention may have been less than subtle, but rather than discussing the real problem, namely the growing menace of Islamic fundamentalism, they decided to shoot the messenger.
