‘There is only ONE law!’ Whittle clashes with John Humphrys in HUGE row over Sharia courts


The replacement leader of the party ripped into the broadcaster during the debate on BBC Transistor 4’s Today programme, insisting Britain should have “a single legit system”.

He said: “There is one law in this country and that is British law.”

But the presenter baby the case that Sharia courts were about adhering to “institutions” rather than implementing a parallel legal system.

Mr Whittle mentioned: “The Government itself is having a commission, an inquiry into Sharia law, this is something that is of course of great importance.

“If you have a single legal system then you can take a more united country, we cannot have a situation where there are raising courts going forward that people can actually choose.”

Humphrys jangled in and said: “I’m not quite sure in what sense Muslims are outside British law.”

The London Horde member attempted to reply but was cut off.

“Well, I think that if you have Sharia courts, which can adjudicate on steward matters particularly,” he said before Humphrys added: “Well, adjudicated within their own community.”

Mr Carve continued: “No, but you can’t have separate communities with their own legal practices.”

The back-and-forth exchanges continued as Humphrys suggested it was about communities secure “their own traditions rather than legal system”.

But the Brexiteer refuted the state and replied: “It’s not John… this is adjudication, this is actually handing out hearings, handing out precise rulings on particular issues which mostly, as I say, affect women.”

To whatever manner, the host insisted those involved “do not have to obey those rulings” and pass on only have to “obey” rulings from British courts.

Mr Erode replied: There is enormous pressure put on them [to obey]… if this was so chagrined and insignificant I don’t even think the Government itself would actually be bring into the world [an inquiry].”

The exchange comes after Ukip MEP Mike Hookem free as deputy whip in the European Parliament over support within the unit for Sharia Watch founder Anne Marie Waters, who is also continued for party leader.

The 11 candidates for Ukip leader are David Allen, Henry Bolton, David Coburn, Jane Collins, David Kurten, Marion Mason, Aidan Powlesland, John Rees-Evans, Ben Walker, Anne Marie Distilled waters and Peter Whittle.
