PM Announces New Measures to Help Muslim Students and Entrepreneurs

Gov.UK, October 21, 2013

New proposals will extend availability of Start-Up and student loans to make them consistent with Islamic financial principles.

The proposals, announced by the Prime Minister at his annual Eid al-Adha reception, will benefit aspiring Muslim entrepreneurs and students who may be deterred from starting their own business or entering higher education due to their religious financial beliefs.

The proposals will see the schemes becoming more accessible to anyone who adopts similar financial principles–not just Muslims. And anyone taking the loans will not be at any advantage or disadvantage–they will repay the same amount as other borrowers.

Speaking at the reception, the Prime Minister said:

I want Britain to be one of the world’s centres of Islamic finance–from the highest and mightiest financial institutions all the way to start-ups. We’ve got tens of thousands of young people starting their own businesses and tonight I can announce that we will make sure that there is a type of Start-Up Loan that is totally consistent with all the principles of Islamic finance. We must do that for Start-Up Loans, we must do that for student loans and we must do it for the Enterprise Allowance. That’s what a welcoming, tolerant, multi-racial country does.

The Prime Minister made the announcement to members of the Muslim community as they celebrated the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha at Downing Street. They were joined by senior government ministers, including Baroness Warsi, imams, community and business leaders, charities and public servants from across the diverse range of Muslim communities in the UK.

Praising the Muslim community for their contribution to Britain, the Prime Minister said:

Tonight is about celebrating the contribution that British Muslims make to our country. It is a huge contribution. But tonight is also an opportunity to talk about the issues of integration, of how we help Muslims around the world and the importance of faith in our country and in our communities and the Muslim faith is so strong in that.

Talking about the UK’s role in supporting Muslims and other people in need around the world, the Prime Minister added:

I’m proud of the that fact that even in difficult economic times this country is one of the few countries in the world that has kept its promise on aid and development–meeting that 0.7% target of our gross national income. A lot of that money goes to some of the most challenged Islamic countries in the world. It is something that we can all be proud of that every 2 seconds a child is vaccinated somewhere in the world because of aid that British tax payers have provided.

    This is an example of what is killing western civilization, the constant sell out of your own people in the name of making money. Aside from that, what the heck is the PM’s “annual Eid al-Adha reception?”

    • D.B. Cooper

      I would’ve been the first comment, but I had to take a few minutes to make that King William IV and David Cameron comparison picture

      • Alfred the Great

        Okay. I will give you credit for the first post…this time. I didn’t know that about Cameron, thanks.

    • me

      Cameron’s got ‘Muzzie Fever’. He needs to be incarcerated in a mental hospital.

      • fuzzypook

        I love that! Is it real? If it is I’m betting that’s in Tennessee. They have a big muzzie problem and they don’t like it.

      Time to bring back drawing and quartering for high treason.

  • D.B. Cooper

    There comes a time when the ruling elite becomes out of touch with the common people. The next thing you know, the Prime Minister will be saying, “Let them eat cake.”
    Remember, boy, girls, and shims, PM David Cameron is a royal elitist, and is a direct descendant of King William IV. Betcha didn’t know that!
    Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. At least, that’s what G.I. Joe told me.

    • Spartacus

      Did you know that David Cameron isn’t an Eskimo ?

    • Spartacus

      Read David Cameron’s page on Wikipedia, the “Family” part .

    • Erasmus

      There comes a time when the ruling elite becomes out of touch with the common people.
      When that occurs, historically, the “elite” either go to the wall or the guillotines. Once upon a time that idea horrified me, but now, as I look at “elites” like Cameron, the Bushes, the .Clintons, McCain and Obama, I really couldn’t possibly care less.

  • Rhialto

    The UK is now legally incompetent to manage its own affairs. Even America’s political leaders do not quite spout that level of lunacy.

    • skara_brae

      And yet your Supreme Leader recently announced that November would henceforth be “Hug A Muzzie Month”.

      • Alfred the Great

        You’re kiddin’, right?

  • sbuffalonative

    Sometimes I say that Britain is done but this time I mean it. Unless the proverbial miracle happens, it’s only a matter of time.

  • bigone4u

    Another British PM named Chamberlain sought peace through appeasement. It didn’t work then and won’t work now. The muzzies will continue to bomb, rape, behead, and otherwise create mayhem. If someone knows a medium, maybe the medium could channel the ghost of Churchill back to life to lead the fight against the invaders.

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    It will not be at the edge of their scimitars, but at the behest of our own slimy elites that Islam will achieve its final victory. Be forewarned, verminous EU/UK leftists, the Islamic conquest of Europe will usher in a new Dark Age of a severity heretofore unseen. “Rivers of blood” does not begin to describe the tribulations ahead…

    • joesolargenius

      That one sign ,Freedom can go to hell says it all in regards to what they seek!

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      There will be rivers of blood where there aren’t rivers of melted concrete and steel because of the nuclear war Islam and the usual accomplices will start. I just hope when it all over the heaps of rotting Muslims corpses will be far larger than the heats of rotting British corpses. I personally would rather see my land turned into an irradiated desert than one taken over by hostile alien people who exterminated the native population.

  • guest

    “David Cameron: “I want Britain to be one of the world’s centres of Islamic finance.”
    This is absolute treason to the indigenous British people.

  • italian guy

    It breaks my heart to see Europe destroying itself like that, thanks to the so called “elites” that are just a bunch of traitorous scum like Cameron… I studied English as my second language because i always loved the culture and especially British people, they always come here in Italy as students and tourists etc. and they don’t deserve what is happening to them, just like all people of European descent don’t deserve it either… anyway it’s crazy how as a stranger i feel like i love England more than its prime minister, we live in a strange world nowadays.

    • rowingfool

      Thanks for saying that. I’m a Yank who’s traveled in Europe by train, auto and bike. I love Europe. You want Diversity? Just travel from Italy to England or vice versa. Europe IS diverse. Every country is wonderfully different. Art, Architecture, Cuisine, the beauty of the languages, the beauty of the women. To say that Europe needs to import aliens in order to “achieve diversity” is hogwash. The pimps who sign on to this are prostituting their homelands and this is proven in Cameron’s admission that it’s all about Muslim money. They are both figuratively and literally letting their women be raped by Muslim vermin.

      • Brian

        Greece is my favourite European nation. Their leader Samaras is a traitor to his people too. But there is hope in Golden Dawn. Greece has proven before what can be done with 300 men of absolute conviction. The time will come again.

    • frederickdixon

      Many thanks Italian Guy, as an Englishman I appreciate your sentiments just as I love your own incomparable country. Many years ago a great Englishman said that mass third world immigration was happening “against the will and without the consent of the British people”. So there is no democratic mandate whatsoever for this continuing process of dispossession which has seen the ethnic minority population multiply manifold since those words were spoken.

    • DaveMed

      Say and think what one might about the monarchs and aristocracies of old… They would have never allowed this.

      The fact is that the only way this can be reversed is through iron-fisted policies. But how could such policies possibly be enacted?

    • saxonsun

      You are more decent and far saner than the traitor Cameron.

    • mobilebay

      I’d like to see an island somewhere that we could send the M&M’s to. Wouldn’t hurt to be surrounded by alligators either.

  • Jefferson

    Pretty soon London will have more Muslims than Lebanon.

    Just when you thought that maybe the British were pulling their heads from out of their bottoms….

  • Truthseeker

    “Right this way! Come to our land and set up the same culture that you have in your own dysfunctional countries! We don’t just accept it, we welcome it! You’re free to displace us whenever you wish! In fact, please, do us the favor of displacing us! You’re just so much more fascinating than us and have so much exotic wisdom that we in our modern ignorance could never see! There’s nothing special about us and our culture! Please, let us turn our country over to you!”

    Why do liberals hate themselves so much?

    And why do they have this insatiable urge to be liked by everyone?

  • Brian

    That’s what a welcoming, tolerant, multi-racial country does.

    And who decided that’s what the UK should be?

    I thought it was this:

    And did those feet in ancient time.
    Walk upon England’s mountains green:
    And was the holy Lamb of God,
    On England’s pleasant pastures seen!

    And did the Countenance Divine,
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here,
    Among these dark Satanic Mills?

    Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
    Bring me my Arrows of desire:
    Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
    Bring me my Chariot of fire!

    I will not cease from Mental Fight,
    Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
    Till we have built Jerusalem,
    In England’s green & pleasant Land

  • Calufrax

    David Cameron, and the other “conservatives” like him, are the vilest traitors on the planet. Why would anyone vote for these scum? At least leftists openly display their hatred for European civilization, while these filth pretend to “conserve” it.

  • Whirlwinder

    Be careful what you wish for Mr. PM. As you feather the nest for Islam in England, you are cutting the throats of your countrymen. What a guy!

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    We need Ivan the Terribles and Vlad the Impalers, someone who can lead their peoples into war and whip their fury into a storm that Islam cannot withstand. They were fierce, cunning, merciless and knew they had to do something to save their populations from the barbarian hordes.
