The election of a Muslim as First Minister of Scotland and head of its government, has come as quite a shock to the British public in general, though few would probably admit it.
Not many were even aware that Humza Yousaf was in the wings for leadership of the Scottish National Party, which has majority representation in the devolved Edinburgh parliament, set up to run its own affairs on a host of issues.
Is this a sign of increasing Islamic influence in the nation as a whole?
Undoubtedly, but there is more to it.
The UK has never been so secular – atheistic humanism is the new religion widely reflected by the mainstream media and liberal elite.
The irony, however, is that the election of a successor to Nicola Sturgeon following her recent resignation was a very close-run race. Kate Forbes, a delightful young lady who also happens to be a highly committed born-again Christian, was the front-runner until the ‘wokerati’ called her out for being a God-fearer (what could she have been thinking?) and all hell broke loose.
