"What world are these people living in?" Well, Ruth Kelly belongs to the Opus Dei sub-culture, as we know. I refuse to believe that her own personal beliefs have no incidence on government policy.

And, what "core values"? In a recent ICM poll, 37% of British Muslim respondents stated that they thought that their fellow citizens were "legitimate targets", as long as they are Jewish. What does that say about the commitment of such people to the social contract we all live by, and their sense of right and wrong? Are these the "core values" the government want to strenghen?

In stating that our society needs to develop "core values", the position of our government seems to be close to that of Muslim extremists who claim that Britain is morally bankrupt.
