Jihadi Baddie Hosts Event in Parliament

Sayeeda Warsi and a host of Labour MPs attended the unveiling of a ‘Muslim Manifesto’ yesterday at an event on the parliamentary estate. Did they know it was organised by an ‘Islamic extremist’ who has praised Al-Qaeda?

Azad Ali is the Head of Community Engagement at Mend, an ‘anti-Islamophobia think tank’ which met yesterday to demand a “review [of] all counter-terrorism legislation enacted since 2000″.

Ali has previously written of his “love” of Al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar Al-Awlaki and was suspended from his job at the Treasury after he attempted to justify the murder of British troops. He has also admitted attending speeches by Al-Qaeda hate preacher Abu Qatada. Ali has previously been described as an “Islamic extremist” by an eminent expert in the field. 

Earlier this week, Mend defended CAGE, the extremist group linked to Jihadi John, accusing the media of “an attempt to discredit” them. Their event in parliament, which Ali live-tweeted, was attended by left-wing Labour MPs Yasmin Qureshi, Gerald Kaufman, Kate Green and Andy Slaughter.

So was Baroness Warsi, who said their “Muslim Manifesto is something you can take to your election candidates”. 

Shadow Cabinet Office minister Jon Ashworth added: “I think this manifesto is really important and a great initiative. I will be studying it very carefully and I will be passing it on to our Shadow Cabinet”.

What was Azad Ali, a man who has professed his love for a senior Al-Qaeda leader, doing in the heart of parliament?

No Commons Debate Over Plain Packs

Plain packs will be slipped into law next week without so much as a debate in the Commons:

Parliamentary business for Monday 9 March 2015:
General Committee
4.30pm Twelfth Delegated Legislation Committee
Subject: Draft Standardised Packaging of Tobacco Products Regulations 2015
Location: Committee Room 6, Palace of Westminster

“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.” – Michael Crichton

Friday 13th For Kensington Selection

Standard reveal the dates:

“The Evening Standard understands that the local party will be given six names by Central Office next Tuesday and they will be allowed to whittle that list down to three. A party spokesman confirms this timetable, but wishes to emphasise that the initial six will be the product of ongoing discussions between the local party and party HQ. The chosen three will then pitch to members and face a vote three days later at the Town Hall, next Friday. The local member says security will be “very tight” so only members of the association who live within the Kensington constituency (and not those in neighbouring Chelsea and Fulham) can get in.”

Lucky day for one…

Former Tory MP Denies “Rent Boy Ring” As Cops Search Home

Kensington Deadline Noon Today

The next MP for Kensington has until noon today to submit their 500 word candidate application for the seat.

Guido understands there has been an unprecedented level of entries from candidates for the seat. These will be whittled down to a final three, who will then be presented to the association in the coming weeks. Two hours til deadline…

Clegg and Cameron at Sixes and Sevens

Red magazine have been quizzing the party leaders…

Tell us in six words why we should vote Lib Dem?

“Stronger economy. Fairer society. Opportunity for all.”

Yep, that would be seven words.

Tell us in six words why we should vote Conservative?

“Security for you, your family and country.”

Yep, that would also be seven words.

It must be a coalition thing…

Boxgate: Proof Party Leader Stood on Box for Photo-Op

A concerned wee reader gets in touch regarding the use of boxes by politicians in photo-ops:

“At just 5’5” and with our MEP, Ian Duncan, and David Cameron being well over 6 foot, I confess I’m perched on a box of jump leads I retrieved from the boot of my car in this pic taken at Loch Lomond last year. However, the PM is such a gentleman that when we last had our picture taken at Number 10, he slipped off his shoes so that I didn’t look just quite so short.

There’s the difference – Miliband bigging himself up in front of men, while Cameron is more than happy to be a gentleman to women…”

Thanks for clearing that one up, Ruth from Scotland…
