So step forward Labour minister Jim Fitzpatrick:
A Labour minister has reacted with fury after he and his wife were ordered into separate rooms at a Muslim wedding.And the usual suspects will be hard pressed to scream 'Islamaphobia!' because he's a regular at Muslim weddings, where this hasn't been an issue before:
Jim Fitzpatrick stormed out of the London Muslim Centre after being told that strict Islamic rules meant his wife Sheila would have to move into another room.
'The segregation of men and women didn't used to be as much of a strong feature,' said Mr Fitzpatrick, the MP for Poplar and Canning Town.And step forward shop assistant Amevi Kouassi:
'We've been attending Muslim weddings together for years but only recently has this strict line been taken.
'But it is an indication of the stricter application of rules that is taking place that didn't exist before.'
The fleeing robber was bigger than him and could have been armed, but shop assistant Amevi Kouassi didn't think twice about tackling the burly yob who attacked an old woman.Hear, hear....
'I had to help,' he said. 'The way I was brought up in my home country of Togo, if you hear someone call for help, you have to go to their aid. It's what we are taught as children.
'It doesn't matter if you know them or don't know them. If someone is in trouble you need to help them. It is wrong to ignore them and walk away.'
