To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether Shahid Malik MP’s August 2009 visit to Pakistan, including his meeting with Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, was in his official capacity as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government with reference to paragraph 10.4 of the Ministerial Code, whether the travel expenses incurred in relation to the August 2009 visit to Pakistan by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Shahid Malik MP, were paid for, in whole or in part, out of public funds; and whether any free travel was accepted.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (a) was informed of, and (b) approved, the August 2009 visit to Pakistan by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Shahid Malik MP, including his meeting with the Prime Minister of Pakistan, prior to the visit taking place.

    Personally I don’t give a fourpenny f*** about Pakistan. It’s has a failed regime/goverment full of shit heads packed with liars and frauds and the world centre of terrorism. Why should I care? I only wish the US /NATO had attacked the real place after 9/11 not Afghanistan (that was always a joke.)
    But that’s politics for yer……

    Looks to me like both Labour and the Conservatives are more than willing to sell their country out for the 2 million+ ethnic Muslim votes available here* and for a few dodgy deals with those who support attacks on British troops and civilians in Afghanistan and Britain.

    *(including postal votes of course)

      Yes, Blue Labour socialists under Dave Cameron are going to rely on their fellow pro EU socialist traveller President Hollande to defend Britains interests and support our foreign policy abroad.

      Soldiers and regiments scrapped to support the IMF, the EU and the Euro.

      Can this so called Conservatove party get any worse?

      I swear I despise them more than Blair and Brown now.

    As annoying as Warsi is, this isn’t the main issue at the moment. Getting the UK out of the EU is the bigger problem. Then ending our foreign entanglements, then reforming our corrupt monetary system, yes that’s you Merv and your bloody printing press running on full auto!

      Speaking of “foreign entanglements” Miliband assures us that UK strength comes from it’s multiculturalism and departure of Scotland [should it so wish] would weaken the whole.
      Will he use the same argument to support the UK’s continuance in the EU?
      Pulling apart instead of pulling forward together will never achieve progress and perhaps division with the subsequent temporary difficulties for both sides is preferable than the present failures as a ‘team’.

      One size does not fit all.

          This whole economic crisis was engineered just for the very purpose of enabling full EU political/fiscal union.

          1. Problem (economic crisis)
          2. Reaction (Austerity for the masses so that they cry out for union)
          3. Solution (Full political/fiscal union – everyone)

          This is the final phase of the Bilderberg/libertarian US Marshall Plan in all its glory.

    I would think eds speech rates as one of the most venial I have heard fro some time , red wedge par excellence . straight after jubilee , homes in on fractured idenity that his party deployed , I mean he may be grateful that his parents were given a home , why in that case did his party ruin the economy and so much home ownership for so many , by his parties wreckless economic policies ?? defining the UK as somthing new and full and fractures , is perhaps a recent invention , noting his own constituancey is now run by and english democrat mayor , doesnt he know anything about the UK , does he honestly think a socialist overlay is what represents it best , or is it that labour in England have a totally damaged brand , for damaging so much of the economy .
    An unnecessary and perhaps road to totalitarian induction into wonk .

      You write, “Is it that labour in England have a totally damaged brand…?” No, the Labour Party is buoyant and very popular – here in Wales, at least.

      I’ve never heard it suggested that Labour damaged the economy. The misbehaviour of the banks, compounded by the last two years of poor government is responsible for the mess we’#re in.

      We need the Labour Party to come in and rescue the country.
