Blairites are determined to deny any link between the increasingly unhappy British Muslim population and the continued presence of British forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. As part of her mission to take on extremists
, Ruth Kelly chaired a roundtable seminar with Muslims. She later denied in an interview that anyone attending had made the link between the war and radicalisation.
Some of those who had attended the seminar she chaired were in the Today studio this morning and they claimed that she had heard from them exactly the opposite, listen here.
Ruth needs to confess and do penance methinks.
