The feminist Swedish foreign minister has put her head above the parapet to criticise Saudi and other Muslim regimes for enslaving women. They are forced into marriage at a very young age invariably to a much older male cousins with all that entails for genetic disease. Nione of our brave UK wimmin like Germaine Greer or Poly Toynbee seem to think this worthy of protest. Our male Muslim politicians like Sadeq Khan also ignore this repulsive custom.
It has fallen to the Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom to protest against these practices. Nick Cohen in the Spectator has written an excellent piece on this topic
Where does our very own crocodile shoes Theresa May stand on this issue
As Home secretary she should be warning all young UK girls contemplating marrying a Muslim and living in an Islamic country that they will be their husband's slave - read Nick Cohen's piece
Ms May and Mr Hammond should point out that their British citizenship will then count for naught.
Not a mention of this on the BBC. It is as Cohen writes,
"Yet there is no ‘Wallström affair’. Outside Sweden, the western media has barely covered the story, and Sweden’s EU allies have shown no inclination whatsoever to support her. A small Scandinavian nation faces sanctions, accusations of Islamophobia and maybe worse to come, and everyone stays silent. As so often, the scandal is that there isn’t a scandal."
Where are the colleagues in this matter?
