When Anders Breivik, self-styled member of an 'international Christian military order', massacred 77 innocent Norwegians, most them children, in July 2011, did we indict Christianity? Sadly, we hold Islam and Muslims to a separate standard...
If the murderers do turn out to be Muslims, then they are guilty of committing genocide, as per the teachings of their own faith, for the Quran clearly states that taking even one human life unjustly equates to the killing of all humanity.
It is shameful that the Government is not taking all the steps that it can to prevent a British national from being executed for drug offences, and it will be yet another stain on our moral and legal reputation worldwide if Mrs Sandiford is executed following the Government's inaction.
The problem for Miliband, and indeed anyone else looking to crack down on corporate tax avoidance, is that the world has changed. On this issue, the politicians are chasing the rampant forces of capitalism, and they appear powerless at the foot of the economic tornado.
Very few in Europe expected that the coming out of Nigel Lawson would be a game changer. But Lord Lawson was soon followed by Michael Portillo and two Cabinet ministers - Michael Gove and Philip Hammond - who also indicated that they would favour Britain's exit, forcing Cameron to take a stand.
What has been interesting for me watching this three act play unfold is that it really makes you think about what MPs are like as individuals. In matters such as this when their personal beliefs are brought to the fore and when such matters result in division it is very psychologically interesting.
Dead-set on proving to their constituents that Ukip are actually fluffy toys when it comes to Europe, Despite Cameron's commitment to a referendum in the next Parliament, Ukip would die. Excuse my Belgian-French, but this is crap.
The shady and immoral global tax system is allowing a whopping £12trillion in wealth to be stashed in tax havens. Yes that's trillion. More importantly, these assets are sitting offshore and off the tax man's radar. If governments could get at it to tax it fairly, it could raise an extra £100billion, which is enough to make a serious dent in solving world poverty.
For all our sakes let's hope that he doesn't succumb to pressure to have a referendum on Europe until at least there is better information provided to the vast majority of, I believe, see the EU at being at best irrelevant and, at worst, consisting of interfering foreigners who imposition of rules potentially undermining the British way of life.
Childcare is again at the centre of a political wrangle thanks to Nick Clegg revealing, albeit indirectly, that he is opposed to ratio changes, which would increase the number of young children that childcare professionals can look after.
As a former Conservative minister warns of the 'aggressive homosexual community', a savage beating of a gay couple in a South London park shows us just how much further we need to go in creating an equal and tolerant society.
One day, and maybe one day soon, we are going to have to face up to the mistakes we have made when it comes to the climate. I'm not saying we are facing a 'Day after Tomorrow' style extinction event, but whatever happens it's not going to be good.
I wonder whether the people who have created a monster ever come to regret it? It's a question as relevant to UKIP's Nigel Farage as it is to one of o...
My amendments today give MPs the opportunity to give clarity and protection for freedom of speech and conscience that are under threat from the Marriage Bill. We have the opportunity today and tomorrow to uphold the fine British traditions of free speech, tolerance and marriage. I hope we don't miss it.
The silver lining in David Cameron's current flurry of clouds is that no ministers have yet decided that their career prospects would be better served by resigning from his government.
If David Cameron expected voters to respect him for firming up his commitment to a referendum on the European Union, YouGov’s latest polling for The Times will disappoint him. Most Britons, including a majority of those who voted Conservative in 2010, think he is acting out of tactical calculation rather than because he feels deeply about the issue.
