Spouting Utter Nonsense

Last week, a fair amount of publicity surrounded a speech made by Baroness Warsi at Leicester University. If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, it’s an interesting read and it highlights what I’ve long considered to be a growing problem in UK society.

Sadly, I’m not sure how we’re going to solve it. When reasonably well-educated, middle class people feel comfortable spouting utter nonsense about religion in general and Islam in particular, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which the general public moves to a position of informed tolerance.

  1. Just to clarify – are you saying that you think what Baroness Warsi was saying out of line? Or have I misread your last paragraph?Vicx

  2. Vic, sorry. In my attempt to make my posts shorter, I've obviously sacrificed clarity.I don't think she was out of line at all; I think she makes some excellent points in the speech.
