Lots of people have had their say on Mehdi Hasan's rant against the prejudices of the Daily Mail on Question Time, and the subsequent publication of his earlier, obsequious letter to the same paper, asking for a job.
You can see both here.
It is an indication of how confused the political compass of the UK has become that Hasan is a darling of much of the left, when he is very much on the right on social issues. He is clearly pitching in his letter to add a Muslim perspective to the Mail's coverage of issues such as teenage pregnanices and family breakdowns.
Part of this confusion comes from what I see as a failure to take the ideas of religious actors, and more accurately in Hasan's case politico-religious actors, seriously. By and large such people mean what they say on social issues, something the left in particular is rather poor at grasping. If you want to know the type of society such beliefs create given the opportunity, take a look at the bible belt in the United States or most Muslim majority nations.
When the Rev Ian Paisely formed the Democratic Unionist Party, he stated he was forming a party that would be to the left on economic issues, but on the right on social and constitutional matters. Take out the constitutional bit, and I can't help thinking that is where Mehdi Hasan stands politically.
