If Muslims want to work under Muslim law, then by golly, let 'em. So long as they recognize that British Law still trumps Sharia law, and that not all Muslims want to live by Sharia law.
In other words, it'll be a voluntary exercise, decisions can be appealed, and in any dispute between the laws, the law of the land wins, period.

Man that sucks that the UK is even considering this BS. If they try it here in the USA, I hope the Muslim aholes put the turbins on tight because we have alot of red neck guns armed and ready. *SNIP*!!

Well, that seems like a whole lotta common sense, why has no-one else thought of that.
Oh, probably because those that want to live by Sharia Law know that it's teachings demand that all Muslims must actively strive to convert the rest of the world to Islam, by whatever means deemed necessary, and as such could not accept such limitations.
Still, as I said before, makes sense to me.

What came out during the debate here, though, was that many Muslims...women in particular...lived in a fairly insulated family environment, and would not necessarily have the opportunity to exercise such free will. Quite frankly, though, this discussion overlapped into the affairs of a number of fundamentalist religious groups, so in the end quite a few people were offended. However, at day's end, British Common Law, (the basis for our judicial system) took the field.
