Excerpt from a well researched article on instablogs
The last I knew Britain was not an Islamic state. Its long history has been mostly rooted in Christianity, however that seems to be rapidly changing.
Over the years, Muslim immigrants started imposing their values on the Brits and the native population has slowly been forced to adapt, through fear of offending.

But many Muslims in Britain (and all over the world, for that matter) are refusing to assimilate, and are actually demanding that westerners conform to their way of life.

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. Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court. Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.”
