Aside from the issues of racial and religious intolerance that are stirred up when discussing the possible enforcement of Sharia law upon non-Muslims, taking the results from the 2001 UK census; does anyone think that the UK is at risk from a legitimate, i.e. ballot box coup on liberal democracy? Further, in spite of the terrorist aims of some extremist Islamic groups, does anyone think that the UK's liberal democratic traditions and institutions are really at risk from an armed attack? My thoughts are that bloc voting in constituencies and wards certainly can affect the outcome of elections if electoral apathy amongst the majority demographic increases, but at the moment I don't believe that we're seeing any overt coherent attempts to put anti-democrats into positions of power, although rumblings have been heard about a couple of local Neu Arbeit associations being taken over. Regarding the martial option, I don't see that this is a real cause for concern, in the near future at least, as there's a vast difference between bombing a few unaware civilians and staging a successful coup. I've always seen myself as a realist in these matters, but am I being too naive with my analysis here?
