A bit late

Archived Stop Press article

The eyes have itThe eyes have itActing leader of the Liberal Democrats,Vince Cable has refused to meet King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, citing suppression of women, corruption and religious intolerance amongst his reasons. In Saudi Arabia Christianity is forbidden yet we allow Saudi money to come to Britain to fund : mosques, schools, madrassas and other Islamic organisations. The largest religious building in Britain, the proposed East London mosque would be funded by Saudi. It's a bit late Vince. In some areas veiled women abound and toddlers can be seen piling into madrassas of an evening. Are you sure they are all enjoying themselves Mr.Cable? Would one of these ladies dare answer if you asked? They are not all young and politicised. Many are elderly and look worn out.
