Britain 'giving in to sharia councils' says Norway's anti-immigration leader
by Richard Orange
Britain is "giving into the claims of Sharia councils", according to the leader of Norway's anti-immigration party which is poised to enter government later this month.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Siv Jensen, the 44-year-old leader of the Progress party who cites Baroness Thatcher as her inspiration, said: "What I have seen that the UK has done is to give in to the claims of sharia councils, and I don't think we should give into that. In Norway we have one law, and that is the Norwegian law."
Miss Jensen, who is unmarried, said Britain was suffering the results of earlier mistakes in its immigration policy.
