Muslims opposed to the British way of life should leave the country, even if they are UK citizens, a senior Conservative said today.

Shadow defence minister Gerald Howarth said that extremists who saw the Iraq war as a conflict against Islam should be considered as treacherous as Soviet sympathisers during the Cold War.

Mr Howarth also criticised remarks by Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and his own Tory colleague, Dominic Grieve, the Shadow Attorney General.
Mr Howarth said the majority of Muslims adhered to British values and he described how the Union Flag had been flown at a meeting he had with Muslims over the weekend.

But the Aldershot MP compared those who despised the British way of life with the traitors who spied for the USSR.

"If they don't like our way of life, there is a simple remedy - go to another country, get out," Mr Howarth told The Scotsman newspaper.

Asked what if those people were born in Britain, Mr Howarth replied: "Tough. If you don't give allegiance to this country, then leave."

He added: "There are plenty of other countries whose way of life would appear to be more conducive to what they aspire to.

"They would be happy and we would be happy."

Mr Howarth was apparently incensed by suggestions from Mr Straw yesterday that the presence of British troops in Iraq was "part of the problem".

And he criticised Mr Grieve, who said yesterday that the London attacks were "explicable" because of the deep sense of anger felt by Muslims in the UK about various issues, including Iraq and the state of the Islamic world.

They always do.
The police spend too much time worrying about whether or not they are being PC. One officer I know spent about an hour when he was writing a report agonising over whether it's "PC" to refer to "Osama Bin Laden" as "Usama Bin Laden" and whether "Islamic" should be spelled with an upper case "I".
