Warsi Cleared Islamist for Lunch with PM

The weekend papers have provided yet more unpleasant reading for Sayeeda Warsi, with the Telegraph claiming she secured a lunch date between her extremist business partner and David Cameron. Former Hizb ut-Tahrir insider Abid Hussain met the Prime Minister during a Conservative Friends of Pakistan function at the Savoy Hotel last month, with the bill paid for by none other than Lady Warsi herself. Given that Hussain has links to a radical Islamic group and has a conviction for violence, Guido is not exactly sure what is going on here. Warsi personally vouched for Hussain, exempting him from security checks…

That stack of paper on Sir Alex Allan’s desk must be growing.  Looks like we might get some value for money from him after all…

UPDATE: CCHQ sources protest that Hussain was not exempted from security checks, he went through the same security arrangements as every other guest. They claim it was hardly a lunch date “between” Abid Hussain and the Prime Minister, when there were over 300 people there. They claim Hussain did not meet the PM.

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
