New Home Secretary

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

New Home Secretary

Post by Brian Yare »

Am I alone in being concerned that the newly appointed Home Secretary is a 2nd generation immigrant and a (non-practicing) Muslim?

More than any government post I would have preferred this position to be held by a British person with British ancestry and who followed the Established Religion of our country.

And who went to a public school ? and alway's wanted to be a politician ?
Play's cricket & rugby ?

A street opposite me in London is named after Dadabhai Naoroji a Liberal MP way back in 1892-1895 and was a Zoroastrian.
He later became Prime Minister of Baroda. So shove that in your pipe.

I doubt it. No shortage of xenophobes and islamophobes nowadays.

A devout aherence to the State religion, indeed any religion, is not a quality I would find desirable in a Home Secretary.

Give me a humanist atheist any day.

No point in you putting in for the position then is there?
