04-10-2006 09:35"Supposing Tower Hamlets or parts of Bradford were to become governed by religious zealots believing in that system. Are we ready for complete local autonomy if it means sharia law?"
as Boris Johnson is quoted in the London daily Telegraph website Wednesday 4 October 2006-10-04
What evidence has Boris Johnson to base that supposition on?
Why does he talk about Sharia law and Tower Hamlets and Bradford?
