ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases

Why has this shocking news not made the front pages? I'm stunned that I've only just recently found out about it. Are these courts operating in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland? And if not, why not? Why don't we Brits get to vote on such important issues?

Sharia courts have been operating in Britain for over a year it has emerged

Five sharia courts have been set up in London, Birmingham, Bradford and Manchester and Nuneaton, Warwickshire. The government has quietly sanctioned that their rulings are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court

The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

Excerpt from a Sudanese blog post:

Sharia Courts Operational In Britain

I know this is old news, but still. When I first read about it, my initial reaction was anger at what I saw - and still see - as a travesty. I thought to myself “what the hell is wrong with you Brits?”
Seriously, what is wrong with you Brits? It doesn’t look to me like you’re doing enough.
