It's all our fault

A curious consensus between the far left and the authoritarian right seems to be emerging over the London bombings. Six Conservative MPs have written to The Spectator claiming that Muslims who criticise the decadent nature of British society are right.

Inayat Bunglawala, media representative for the Muslim Council of Britain, said that "many Mulsim parents are worried for their children by a culture which often seems to justify instant gratification, such as binge-drinking and promiscuity".

Is this how we should punish promiscuity, Inayat?
