Jack Straw, Britain’s highest judicial officer, addressing George Washington University, nixed Sharia in Britain.
Per The Washington Times’ Elizabeth Eldridge, Straw stressed that there “cannot be two separate legal systems” in Britain.
“He advocated a British bill of rights as a first step toward a US-style constitution.”
This is encouraging because of the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams coming out recently for sharia. He backtracked when attacked by the opposition. Nevertheless, his original words still stand for many who know the maverick’s eccentricities.
Williams after all had stated that the sharia throughout the UK was “unavoidable.”
