Sharia law in the UK is unavoidable!

Oh really?

Well I moved away from the Middle East get away from it.

I, personally, won't buy into it no matter how much the population statistics shift in favour of Islam. I'm quite content with the legal system we have.

Do you think that the Arhcbishop's comments are helpful or a hindrance towards greater social cohesion?

Again I think that the headlines belie the whole truth. In the interview I heard the archbishop said that he thought that same rules that apply to Judaism should apply to Islam, I must admit that I didn't know that Jews could decide to use their own courts for such things as domestic disputes/divorces etc. and I'm not sure I'm completely in agreement with it, but the implication is that you can choose to be judged in such a court but this doesn't mean that you can't then apply to the normal courts should you wish.

In this report here it tells us it's already happening.

My worry is rich families will simply pay people off for their family indiscretions.

Islamic and Jewish law remains confined to civil matters. But the BBC's Law in Action programme has learned that the Somali court hears criminal cases too.

One of the most serious cases it has dealt with was the "trial" of a group of young men accused of stabbing a fellow Somali.

"When the suspects were released on bail by the police, we got the witnesses and families together for a hearing," says Aydarus. "The accused men admitted their guilt and apologised. Their fathers and uncles agreed compensation."
