We reported yesterday on Richard Rashleigh Folliott Scott, Baron Scott of Foscote, known jocularly by his old public school chums as “Richie ‘Pay the Jizya and Willingly Submit’ Scott”.
OK, so I made that last part up. But still…
Lord Scott caught the attention of certain xenophobic media outlets when he rose in the House of Lords and suggested that the problem of Islamophobia might be successfully addressed if more people were encouraged to enter into “interfaith marriages” with Muslims, as his own children had done. “Interfaith”, in the case of the Scott family, meant “converting to Islam before marrying”. However, no one in the Lords was so indelicate as to point out that his familial examples could hardly be characterized as “interfaith” marriages.
Below is the video of the exchange in the House of Lords on July 8, 2014. The discussion is led by Sayeeda Hussain Warsi, Baroness Warsi, the Senior Minister of State, Department for Communities and Local Government and Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
Notice that during all the incredibly important points made by the noble lords and noble ladies and noble friends and right reverend comrades, not a single murmur of dissent is raised against the prevailing orthodoxy. No one questions the wisdom of Multiculturalism or the mass immigration of Muslims into Britain. No one points out that the goal of “integration” is a laughable chimera, given the violent crime-ridden, “sharia zones” that have been established in all major British cities and towns. Not one of these esteemed, honored, incredibly important noble souls is willing to break ranks and describe the condition of the country as it really is, much less propose any possible remedies for the degraded situation of Her Majesty’s 21st-century realm.
God help Britain — because only divine intervention could have any hope of success at this point.
