Islamofascism/Regular Fascism

This is probably the first time I've heard DC express a strong stance on anything*. It is certainly a step in the right direction. The BBC video report on this is interesting, amongst other things it quotes the Conservatives as explicitly accusing the "moderate" Muslim Council of Britain of being equivalent to the BNP. Not that this is the first time that I've heard similar accusations of their being extremist, but never from one of the main parties.

This quote from the end of the BBC report is a bit mystifying

But invoking white racists in his argument some worry he will promote alienation
rather than integration.

Who worries about that and what the hell are they smoking! Seriously I cannot understand the objection to this. British Muslims obviously hate the BNP, Cameron is just saying that disagrees with them just as much he disagrees those who wish to impose sharia law on Britain. It seems a perfectly reasonable position to me.

*with the exception of climate change which all of the mainstream parties seem to broadly agree on.
