Methinks you may need to read between the lines. Remember that the Muslim religion in many countries is THE way of life and used as the model for how people worship, behave, conduct their business and how their laws are administered. The people under this regime (especially in Middle Eastern countries) are bound by this and as a consequence the doctrine is instilled from a very early age and followed religiously (no pun intended) by everyone no matter who they are!
In other non-muslim countries (not just the UK) religion plays very little/no part in the way society operates and it certainly doesn't dictate policy.
I think (maybe) this is what this particular minister is trying to convey, I.e. Basically that we have no respect for the religious values that are used to model ourselves with respect to our government, culture and laws.
Having lived in the Middle east myself and sampled the delights of their way of life (in some cases) I have to agree with her - especially in the (mostly) innefective way that we deal with our law breakers and the unscrupulous way that some in our society conduct their business.
