Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by hugh (United Kingdom), Feb 9, 2006 at 02:21

it must be realised that the uk response to the cartoons was actually a personal one from jack straw as an mp rather than speaking for the uk population as foreign secretary. he is an mp for the constituency of blackburn which is made up of a vast majority of muslim voters. had he not said what he did he would not be re-elected. what some people do to keep their job!
