I was just watching an interview with the Conservative MP Mark Field on the BBC News 24 channel. The possibility of British participation in air strikes on IS was being discussed. When the interviewer asked him if it was right that Britain should let America "carry the burden alone", Field replied that Britain now had to adopt a more patient approach because of the domestic threat posed by large numbers of "British passport holders" who were sympathetic to IS! So politicians are now openly admitting that the presence of Muslims in Britain has affected the kind of foreign policy Britain can or should pursue. It was a live interview but if it comes up again I will record it and post it.
