Warsi's Spice Partner Took Labour MP on Expenses-Paid TripAbid Hussain Linked to Pakistan ISI Spy Agency Front Group


In the Daily Star Sunday yesterday Guido picked up on Labour’s own links to Abid Hussain – Warsi’s in-law and business partner at the centre of her recent troubles. This former Hizb ut-Tahrir insider travelled to Pakistan with the Tory chairman in 2010, but that’s not the only politician he has got close to. In the same summer Hussain was travelling with Warsi, he was also organising dinners attended by Labour’s rising star Stella Creasy. As the pictures above show, Hussain was also helped out on David Miliband’s leadership campaign. Creasy has also campaigned with Hussain on local issues, though she was quick to distance herself from him on Friday when we pressed her… 

The connections didn’t stop there. Normally bruiser Simon Danczuk would be one of the first out of the traps when it comes to attacking the government, however on this one he’s been very quiet. Could it be because last year he too travelled all-expenses paid to Pakistan, going to meetings set up by the same Abid Hussain?

Danczuk’s expenses were paid by the Kashmir Centre, which is a front for the Pakistani spy agency ISI.  Six months after the trip with the All Party Group on Kashmir the FBI arrested and charged Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, the head of the Kashmir Centre, for conspiring to act as an agent of a foreign power.

Although Danczuk did declare the trip in the Register of Interests, he did not reveal that the “staff member” who accompanied him on the trip was his then partner, now wife, Karen Burke. The rules state that any trips “made by Members or their spouses or partners, which in any way arise out of membership of the House, where the cost of any such visit has not been wholly borne by the Member or by United Kingdom public funds” must be declared. Despite ignoring questions last Friday, Danczuk’s staffer managed to call today, though he asked Guido not to run his explanation. Over to you Simon…
