What Is Going On Here?

Courtesy of Cranmer, I came across this story in which he links to this, this, this and this.

It would appear that, to paraphrase Shakespeare, there is something rotten in the state of England?

If the facts in these stories are correct and presumably that is so, then is this yet another example of the Labour Party's lack of expertise in the choice of those it considers suitable for ennoblement?

Can the lack of expertise by the Labour Party in the choice for ennoblement, as in so many other areas, be attributed to the problem of House of Lords rules being broken, along with acceptable standards of behaviour?

Did I miss this news item on the BBC? In fact I cannot recall seeing this story reported anywhere - Why? Was it due to the media's desire to 'not offend Muslims'?

Is not the reported comment ‘to mobilise 10,000 Muslims to prevent Mr Wilders from entering the House' not an 'incitement to violence' - because violence would surely have followed such a 'demonstration'.

The feeling is growing that this country is not just financially broken, but morally and socially broken too.

Where is our present-day Cromwell? Do we have just one politician who is prepared to give a lead and fix this broken country?

Hopefully we don't have any potential Cromwells about. Our government may well be corrupt and incompetent but I don't think that a military dictator would be much of an improvement!

It was not so much the 'dictatorial' aspect as the 'sense of purpose', coupled with a sense of 'sense/level of behaviour' aspect I was thinking of when I mentioned Cromwell.
