Faith school must conform - Daily Express Op-Ed 14/10/2017

The Court of Appeal has ruled that an Islamic faith school’s policy of segregating boys and girls is unlawful sex discrimination and not before time. It is surely a given that in Britain schoolchildren are treated equally. We have a long tradition of welcoming other cultures to our shores but anyone who wants to live here must abide by British customs and laws. For far too long the authorities have been allowing some communities to behave as if they can set their own rules and another example of this is the shocking rise in sharia courts, which should be closed down forthwith. 

These practices are foreign to this country and should remain so.
