Pardon me, but...

Well done to Rear Admiral Amjad Hussein RN, but something of a surprise in the final lines of the piece where the paper, Islam Online, makes the following observation:

A February poll showed that 91 percent of British some 1.6 million Muslims are "loyal" to Britain and 80 percent still want to live in and accept Western society [sic].

Umm, doesn't that mean that 144,000 are avowedly disloyal, and 320,000 don't want to live in or accept Western Society.

Is it me, or is that rather alarming?

I tried desperately to promote the idea of political loyalty among British Muslims for my Phd thesis at a reputable London academic institution a couple of years ago and it was repratedly shot down on the grounds that the topic was 'too recent an emergence and hence not phenomenal enough to warrant doctoral research'

Blimey, you should see just how unphenomenal my doctoral research is...
