Interesting stuff.

From my point of view Islam hasn't integrated as well into British society as well as we might have hoped, however with Labours illegal war etc, we actually haven't exactly helped ourselves.

And if Labour had not stood up to Tories we would be sitting pretty in Syria now I guess? But lets not forget the success of the great invasion of Libya that has worked out so well for them.

Seeing how few people attend church these days I dont think relgion per se is compatible witnhe the majority of British values

This is anecdotal so may not necessarily be true but Catholic attendances are supposedly up due to the amount of Poles attending.

Iguess it also begs the question are British values Christian ones.

Same as Christianity, so long as you accept some of what is in your Holy Book isn't compatible millennia after it was written you're fine.

Stop splitting hairs ..invasion-intervention call it what you like it has failed big time.

Have a link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-31521282 even from your right wing BBC shock horror.

I'm not splitting hairs at all. It was a UN backed sea and air blockade which we and many other countries took part in. It was part of the so-called Arab Spring which escalated into civil war.

Have a read up on all the others who didn't hang around to rebuild. We are not the only ones at fault here.

So at least you agree we were at fault then.

Yes I do, contrary to popular opinion I'm not a warmongering right-wing gun nut who screams 'Nuke em! at every opportunity. I'm a firm believer in looking out for our own interests and letting the rest of the world sort out their own. I truly don't give a toss about Libya but would send every plane, ship and troop to defend The Falklands or Gibraltar. If the rest of the world wants to tear themselves apart then let them get on with it.

Sounds like a true Tory. Just change a few words and it is bang on the money. Lets do it for you.

If I was a true Tory then I wouldn't be wanting the Foreign Aid budget reduced by £9 billion would I. Fish as much as you like old man, I'm here all night and have plenty of beer.:madman:

I suspect Islamic values are as variable as Christian values.

You might get the odd wrong'un in there, but the overwhelming majority of Muslims have moderate views which are entirely compatible with most British views. There are idiots at the extreme of both.

Quite so. The list of atrocities perpetrated by the 'Methodist State' is a lengthy document indeed.
