British Sharia?

In the Telegraph today (via The Washington Monthly) :
Four out of 10 British Muslims want sharia law introduced into parts of the country, a survey reveals today.
Overall, the findings depict a Muslim community becoming more radical and feeling more alienated from mainstream society, even though 91 per cent still say they feel loyal to Britain.
I know surveys are often wrong and the results depend on how the question is worded. But you got to admit this one is a bit disturbing. 40% is a really high number!
It's not like we can know about the French Muslims since it is illegal to make surveys based on ethnic or religious beliefs, but I suspect that the French muslims are paradoxically more integrated and more secularized.
