The first question is, how is it that the government makes these dangerous, seditious deals with taxpayer monies with no accountability to the taxpayer?
It’s just more of the galloping islamization of England.
After the UK banned me for my defense of freedom, enemedia lapdogs laughed when I said that the UK was operating as a de facto Islamic state. Whose laughing now?

MPs express outrage at discovering Sharia law rules parts of Whitehall

MPs could be forced to stop drinking alcohol when they move out of the Palace of Westminster while it undergoes much-needed repairs over the next decade – because of Sharia law.
Earlier this week plans were revealed for MPs to be rehoused in a temporary chamber in a courtyard in the Department of Health, but it has emerged that the building is governed by Islamic law.
The building, located at 79 Whitehall, was quietly transferred to finance an Islamic bond scheme in 2014.
The proposal to move to the Department of Health is among the most popular because it is housed just 100 yards from the Commons entrance and many MPs’ offices are in the adjacent building at 1 Parliament Street
Under terms of the lease, alcohol is one of the activities banned on the premises, according to The Times.
A Whitehall official told the newspaper: ‘It’s true. If MPs want to use Richmond House they’d better give up any hopes it will include a bar.’
Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said he was outraged to discover that parts of Whitehall was being ruled by Islamic law.
‘I do find it unbelievable government buildings are governed by Sharia law,’ he told MailOnline.
‘I don’t see the bars as being an essential part of Parliament but it’s the principle that matters.
‘Most of our constituents will be absolutely amazed that the principle could ever have been authorised.’
Richmond House is one of three Whitehall buildings that were transferred to the £200million Islamic bond scheme, which switched their ownership from British taxpayers to wealthy Middle Eastern businessmen and banks.
George Osborne announced the move in June 2014 as part of an effort to make the UK a global hub for Islamic finance.
But critics say the scheme would waste money and could undermine Britain’s financial and legal systems by imposing Sharia law onto government premises.
The bonds – known as Sukuk – are only available for purchase by Islamic investors.
