What is the situation in Britain?

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), Jun 17, 2005 at 05:55

Are you aware of any similar situations occurring in Britain? I would not be surprised to hear that the Saudis import slaves to Britain and that the British authorities don't care about it.

It is worthy remembering that the mayor of London, Ken Livingston, has recently given a warm, official welcome to a controversial Saudi cleric. Mayor Ken Livingston, also known as Red Ken, is very pro-Muslim and did not hesitate to hold an official meeting with this Saudi cleric- to be honest, I cannot remember what the charges against the Saudi cleric were- but refused to greet the American President George W Bush when he went to London to meet the Queen and the British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

And don't even get me started on the Scottish MP George Galloway, because he makes Ken Livingston look good.

In a context like that, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the Saudis are importing slaves to Britain.

The British press is very pro-Muslim and so are British authorities. Are the Saudis importing slaves to Britain?

Do you know anything about that, Mr. Pipes?

No, I am not aware of UK examples, which is not to say they do not exist.
