Woolas Warns Against “Inbred Muslims”Cryer Says Pakistanis Have “Medieval Culture”

Woolas got backing from Ann Cryer, Labour MP for Keighley, who described Pakistani culture as medieval. “This is to do with a medieval culture where you keep wealth within the family… If you go into a paediatric ward in Bradford or Keighley you will find more than half of the kids there are from the Asian community. Since Asians only represent 20%-30% of the population, you can see that they are over represented.”

This may well all be true. If it had been pointed out by a Tory MP, Labour MPs would be screaming “racist”. Muslims Pakistanis might jusifiably be feeling put upon currently…
