And they said they (the protesters) had public opinion on their side. 25 out of a population of 150,000. Thanks for the laugh. Get 1,500 just 1% of us then you might just get a mention.

Of course, if he were in Marston Road he could check on the Islamic Study Centre that is still unfinished 8 years after his last visit to it. I wonder what other Saudi-funded buildings he has planned for Oxford.

Well with Charlie lad concentrating on praising the £billionaire arms dealer that brokered a £billion+ deal for his (charles) equivalents in the Saudi Royal Family, one thinks that he won't have much time for the lentil munchers complaining about a little building. Ah Well, such is life, and commerce, and corruption, and toadyism.
