Am I the only one that finds it LOL that you can have a building in your country (other than an embassy) that is not governed by your law?(Original post by Dumachi)
MPs could be forced to stop drinking alcohol when they move out of the Palace of Westminster while it undergoes much-needed repairs over the next decade – because of Sharia law.
Earlier this week plans were revealed for MPs to be rehoused in a temporary chamber in a courtyard in the Department of Health, but it has emerged that the building is governed by Islamic law.
The building, located at 79 Whitehall, was quietly transferred to finance an Islamic bond scheme in 2014.
Lol at UK government
Sharia law may stop MPs drinking. Watch

It IS governed by our laws.
The rules that " happen to be sharia compliant" can be applied by any landowner who rents property.
Where I live , you are not allowed vans, campers or caravans.
There are villages where all the paintwork has to be the same colour
A band that I knew used to practice in a church hall. They'd often take cans of beer.
The hall got expensive so they rented another
But this church insisted that if they rented the hall, no booze was allowed.
They were very nice about it, but didn't want any alcohol on the premises
People are twisting what are actually quite common tenancy rules to suit an agenda
I'd be more worried that the mp's need a drink so much. They have cheap booze and pretty much all day drinking . In any other workplace, you'd get the sack if you drank as much as mp's do
