The Mail and Muslims

October 25, 2006

I was quite suprised to read an op-ed piece in the Daily Mail defending muslims from the rhetorical predations of New Labour (via) because being friendly to minorities isn't really the usual Mail/Tory modus operandi.

Of course, it's just part of the new Tory strategy of attcking Labour from its left with a progressive-seeming face. Your standard Cameron bit, y'know? But just have a read of the reader comments in order to be reminded what the Mail-reading right is really all about:

Actually, most people aren't too bothered if this outbreak of commonsense speech is all down to political manouvering, we are just glad that at last some influential politicians are reflecting what the vast majority of native British people actually think.
I strongly agree that Labour are using this to win votes but the question remains that if feelings are so strong amongst the public that this could become a vote winner then shouldn't all parties be addressing this issue on behalf of the gagged majority?
