Change The Record, Baroness Warsi

My sort of failure isn't rewarded with a peerage, so what do I know? I readthat Baroness Warsi is scheduled to spout nonsense today. Why do so many Muslims live in the UK? They haven't been kidnapped and brought here against their will (that traffic tends to be eastbound, for "cultural" reasons). The reason why Muslims live here is because it is still by a very long chalk better than the shitholes with Muslim governments. Three words: Tunisia, Pakistan, Bangladesh. Four words: other Muslim ruled countries . Britain is a place where the rule of (non-sharia) law operates and property and liberty cannot be confiscated on a whim. That's why people came, knowing they had far better opportunities than their neighbours in countries granted independence. When terrorists (of whom the BBC dare not speak their name) slaughtered 52 people in London in 2005, did the alleged bigotry of the British erupt into a violent retaliation against Muslims? No. It wasn't as if Sunnis had murdered Shi'ites or vice versa or both had murdered members of smaller Muslim sects or, ignore it as much as you will, Iraqi Christians or Egyptian Copts. The bare fact that Baroness Warsi refuses to acknowledge is that Muslims are not victims. She and most of her co-religionists are constitutionally incapable of self-criticism or accepting constructive criticism from others. If something goes wrong, it is the fault of the Americans, Israelis, British, Sunnis, Shias, anyone other than themselves. Western society is not perfect by a long way but accepting that is the first step on the road to improvement.
So, Baroness Warsi should look in the mirror and ask what she can do to improve things instead of stirring up trouble. Begin by talking about people who are a positive example like Lance-Corporal Jabron Hashmi, to every Briton. Then, acting and speaking like a Conservative in the old sense and demonstrating she loves her country, respects its history and traditions, and aspires to an even better future. And if she can't do that, she should put her miniver trimmed red robe back on the rack and "find a better 'ole."
Update 16:43 20 January 2010. Clear evidence of prejudice against Muslims.
