    British PM says Muslim women must learn English or risk being deported
    By David K. Li

    British Prime Minister David Cameron came under fire Monday after publishing an op-ed piece hinting that immigrant Muslim women should be considered for deportation if they don’t improve their English.
    Cameron, writing in the Times of London on Monday, said too many Muslim women are forced into subservient roles by their male partners.
    “Someone can move to here with very basic English and there’s no requirement to improve it over time. We will change that. We will say now: if you don’t improve your fluency, that could affect your ability to stay in the UK,” Cameron wrote.
    “This will help make it clear to those men who stop their partners from integrating that there are consequences.”
    But Muslim advocates said Cameron’s call was nothing more than a low political blow.
    “The Prime Minister David Cameron and his Conservative government are once again using British Muslims as a political football to score cheap points to appear tough,” said Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Muslim advocacy group the Ramadhan Foundation.
    “Rather than focusing on the positive contribution of our faith and community, he focuses on the extreme minority of issues which clearly is not representative. “

    That's great. When they're blowing themselves up, they can yell "God is great" rather than Allah Akbar.

    Doug Stanhope had a good bit where he basically said any attack on American politics or culture by the British is immediately invalidated by the fact that they still have a Queen supported by tax dollars (or in this case, pounds).

    The problem with his statement is that the monarch has what are called "crown lands". I think it was George III who turned it over to parliment with the stipulation that the government was to use the rent on the land to support the monarch. If the government does not do that, then the lands revert to the monarch. The rents amount to more than the monarch receives. So in reality the monarchy does not cost the people anything. They actually make a profit on the monarchy.

    Maybe so, but I think the bigger point is that England still has a Queen. It's an archaic and illiberal system.

    Often times, an entire country cant really be classified as a single mindset. There may be two or more opinions in any given country.

    They'll likely need the US to bail them out of the next conflict whether internal or abroad. Kinda like WWI and WWII.

    What's so hard to figure out? Trump is a fat old bag of shit. We should ban him from this country too.

    Come to think of it. you're 100% correct, even though the Brits sound somewhat gay to begin with.
