Quite possibly.

There is a certain irony in fighting for democracy and human rights in Afghanistan, and then imposing Sharia on our own doorstep.  Sharia is evil - and it most certainly is not a matter of "they can do what they want in their own communities", as this is a slap in the face of Muslims integrating in UK culture, while there is no choice involved for those borne into these households.

From the reports, he also comes across as enourmously racist. "Muslims cannot comprehend our Laws". Indeed.

This man is using the Muslim/fundamentalism issues to further his own goals/pet causes. Just like the liberal that said we should have a sober Christmas to not annoy the Muslims. Lots of people tag their own pet causes to the current problems with Islam. In the US this takes the form of tagging pet causes to the war on terror. They use the problems with Islam to further causes that  have nothing to do with this.

Same happens in the Netherlands where reactionary Catholics use issues surrounding Islam to advance their own causes. They are the guys that state that Theo van Gogh shouldn't have insulted religions, which conveniently includes Catholicism, and while he did not deserve his fate, he's not innocent either.

I guess these guys fondly think of the not too distant past when a reverend was "feared and respected" and he swayed a lot of power over a community. For these "Christians" sharia laws has a lot of appeal.

There should be a special part of hell reserved for people like this.

its all been blown out of all proportion... we already have the equivalent of what he suggests (CoE and Jewish courts)
UK law would overule any faith based ruling as it does already.
 
our whole legal system is based of "biblical/christian law"....
 
but pointing out that does not alter my opinion that I don't want anything at all to do with Sharia Law, although I might like their rather more active anti criminal behaviour stances...   :-)

I've read anecdotal reports of a 2006 case in Woolwich where the police turned over arrested suspects in a stabbing for resolution by an Islamic Council. Perhaps this seen only as dispute resolution by an arbitrator using ground rules agreed to by all parties concerned. It has been difficult to get further definitive details. The problem is that when you have parties that don't agree on the rules, which takes primacy, traditional English common law or Sharia law? How does one then discriminate?

"has this man lost the plot?"

To lose the plot, one has to have had it in the first place.
