Re: Islamophobia in the Conservative Party

'Islamaphobia' really is an Oxymoron isn't it?

I don't think there's any irrational thought in having a fear of Islam...

Would you want to live in an orthadox Islamic Caliphate?.... Because I certainly wouldn't want to.

Re: The League cup - What's the point?

Technically it's a better cup than the FA cup in that the talent is way more concentrated but obviously doesn't have the same prestige or the type of upsets you can see from non league teams besting league teams.
