IMPORTING THE SUPERIOR CULTURE:

Use Sharia law on bike thieves, says MP Boris (Daily Mail, 16th March 2007)

[B]oris Johnson has a new target in his sights - bicycle thieves.

Fed up with having his bike stolen and wheel nuts taken, the outspoken Tory MP and cycling enthusiast wants to get tough on bike thieves.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the Islington Cyclists Action Group at Islington Town Hall on Wednesday night, he called for hardline 'Sharia law' to be used on bike thieves.


Should have just kept the Puritans.

Great so now you're in favor of sharia? Or is it just that you like imposing harsh penalties on people?

Old fashioned, pre-progressive era, Anglo-Saxon law would work just fine.

I.E. the Puritans. No one every stole the wheel nuts off Oliver Cromwells bicycle.

That's all sharia is.

Sharia is God's law. The nature of God is open to interpretation.

They used to hang horse thieves, and for a good reason.
