Now that’s a Question!

Over the past six-odd weeks of this seemingly-interminable run-up to the General Election, thousands of interviews have been completed, hundreds of thousands of statements made, simply millions of words printed, read and devoured/ignored by a bemused British populace; unused as we are to even having someone ask our opinion about anything at all.

But in all that time, with all those earnest politicians in semi-shrouded view, with hardly any direct questions asked or answered by anyone, no-one has asked the one question which maybe should have been asked on the first day; perhaps in memory of Charlie Hebdo which, in retrospect, mention of which seems to have disappeared from the headlines and pages with extreme haste.

 

Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms. Political Party Candidate, Does an ordinary British voter, or even newspaper publisher, have the right to draw and publish a picture of the muslim prophet, whatever he may be called; or otherwise poke fun at a religion, despite whatever anyone else’s religion states?

      Mr. Trotters….MP, (Anonymous by choice)

      Does your use of the word ‘bigot’ assume the same sense as did Gordon’s immortal phrase when describing Mrs. Duffy; or does your use of the term imply that anyone who disagrees with a muslim regarding pictures or cartoons of his paeadophilic leader and alleged prophet is a bigot?
