Government sell out to Islam

MPs will not be allowed to drink alcohol at their temporary premises    Source: Sunday Express

The Sunday Express reports that MPs are to be rehoused temporarily in Richmond House while Parliament undergoes much-needed repair. But the building, 91 metres down the road, was transferred from the British Government to wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen and banks under an Islamic bond scheme, called Sukuk, in 2014 in George Osborne's bid to make the UK a global hub for Islamic finance.

The lease terms stipulate the building is governed under Islamic law - which includes the banning of alcohol on the activities. Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen said he could not believe parts of Whitehall are being governed by Sharia law.

Mr Bridgen will not be alone in his disbelief. Mr Osborne would have done well to recall 1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

It is not the alcohol, it is the principle. Perhaps Mr Osborne is too busy to notice how Islam features in Syria, Iraq, Greece, Germany, Calais, etc, etc.

What a sell out.

Postscript [04.03.2016]

Five Whitehall buildings held by wealthy businessmen now operating under Sharia rules:

The historic Admiralty House and four other Whitehall buildings are now operating in accordance with some sharia rules – including a ban on alcohol – after they were used as part of an Islamic bond scheme. The properties must comply with some aspects of sharia under the terms of special bonds known as sukuk, announced by George Osborne two years ago when the UK became the first Western country to issue them. - Independent report here.


  1. UK governments think no further than 5 years ahead hoping for re-election at the end of this period.
    Islam ,on the other hand, incorporates every move into their long term plan,and that is not to live in the West and the U.K. In an atmosphere of tolerance ,sharing and understanding our society : the 'plan' is without question dominance of the West and annihilation of Christianity ; whatever they may say in the phoney inter-faith meetings.

      There are morning prayers in both Houses as far as I know.
      Will Islamic Law allow Christian prayers in Richmond House? Is not Kamal El-Hajji , the Sarjeant at Arms , a Muslim? He is responsible for keeping order ,so which law will he apply!
