France's interior minister targets immigrants who practise polygamy and FGM

Brice Hortefeux, the country's interior minister, called for immigrants who practise polygamy or female genital mutilation to have their citizenship withdrawn. The Sunday Telegraph calls this a 'lurch to the right'. If they mean right, as in correct, I agree.

Mr Hortefeux said there were "possibilities to have nationality withdrawn in the case of polygamy, genital mutilation and serious wrongdoing." In all cases the radical punishment would not just apply to immigrants, but also to those who have a foreign background, even if they were born in France.

It follows President Nicolas Sarkozy calling for all foreigners who attack police in the kind of riots which blighted Muslim housing estates earlier this month to also lose their nationality.

Mr Hortefeux was speaking after an Algerian-born French Muslim was questioned by police about regularly raping a woman he was involved with between 2003 and 2007. He has already been charged with claiming thousands of pounds worth of state aid for 15 children he had with four different women.
