Should all Muslim Marraiges be registered under UK Law?

There was a programme on BBC 4 on the 22nd August 2016 at 16:30

This was a talk on Sharia Law or Councils within the UK. Whilst it as not compulsory for a Muslim to use it and it as no backing of UK Law, which is still Primary Law of the UK.

It deals mainly with family law, divorce, inheritance, custody of children etc.

What came out of it was the suggestion of all Muslim marriages in the UK to be registered by the register office official in a similar manner to anyone else who gets married in the UK.

After writing the above article I got to thinking of expanding the article people are like computers analogy and here is the result.

When a computer becomes obsolete, or outdated, we usually scrap it, or maybe upgrade it.

In most cases though we scrap it. The casing is getting a bit tacky, with the odd scratch or dent. It is starting to be a bit slow, compared with newer computers. Indeed it may not be even able to run newer programmes.

Muslim killing a Muslim because he was not Muslim enough?

Muslim killing a Muslim because he was not Muslim enough? No we are not talking ISIL in Syria, but Glasgow in the United Kingdom.

Now that the trial of Tanveer Ahmed is over for the killing of Asad Shah the shop keeper in Glasgow.

How the Government Works

How the Government Works

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of nowhere. Parliament said, "Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Parliament said, "How does the night watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Parliament asked, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

EU Referendum

Referendum to either remain or leave the EU

We have just had a referendum to either remain or leave the EU, this as divided the UK, by regions, ages and classes, not to mention the political establishment.

The vote was close 48.1% to stay 51.9% to leave. A majority of about 8% majority to leave.

David Cameron as resigned, leaving the Conservative Party to pick a new leader and hopefully get their act together before debating with Brussels on our exit terms.

The Labour Party [elite] is playing the blame game and blaming Jeremy Corbyn. Seeking a vote of no confidence and to have a new leader more acceptable to who, the elites, or the people?

Letter to my MP on plot to remove Jeremy Corbyn

Dear Jim McMahon,

I voted to remain and my family voted to remain. I also bitterly disappointed by the outcome as I think it will hurt worker rights.

With the resignation of the prime Minister there is a chance that we will be called to a snap election before the end of this year and the party needs to be focussed on winning this if one is set.

After the disapointing result in the EU Referendum, the prime Minister has already resigned.

Now there are already murmurs of the usual suspects in the Parliamentary Labour Party trying to subvert its members will and to carry out a coup in the Labour party.

I have recently joined the Labour party and I support our present leader, Jeremy Corbyn

How to be a Millionaire.

How to be a Millionaire?

I was thinking I bought my first pint of beer too many years to remember. I paid 1/11d in old money, about 10p into days money. Today in my local I paid £3.20 a pint.

This represents a 3200% increase.

I bought my first house for £6000, since moved on. But I noticed the house that I once owned was on the market for £200k.

This represents a 3333% increase

I bought my first new car for the princely sum of £800. A similar car with a much higher specification and economy [30mpg to 55mpg] I can now buy this car for £9500

This represents a 1187% increase

So with a combination of interest, inflation and time we can all become millionaires.

On non-Muslims

“What if you’re cycling and accidently eat a fly?”

That was one of the questions I received about fasting, among others, some equally as silly. I did my best to answer them because I knew  the person enough to know they were genuinely interested - “it’s nice to be able to talk about this stuff, I never really learnt about it at school and if this had been school I’d have been given detention ages ago for all these questions”.

Are people like computers?

Are people like computers?

Just a thought, are we humans a bit like computers.

1] The box that houses the computer comes in all shapes, sizes and colours. Just like humans.

2] We have a hard drive, it’s called a brain and it resides in our skull. The brain controls most of the essential functions of the body. Doing so without us even thinking about them. Just like the main processor in the hard drives operating system.

3] We see, hear, touch, taste and smell by the use of our external sensors, The computer receives information from its external sources. We do have the extra advantage of having the use of logic, gut feeling and some might say a disadvantage the feelings of guilt and compassion.
