UKIP Spinning Bashir ‘Met With Terror Organisation’

UKIP-MEP-BASHIR-DEFECTS

David Cameron says he is “absolutely delighted” UKIP MEP Amjad Bashir has returned* to the Tories, as it emerges Bashir allegedly met with what UKIP are claiming is a “terror organisation“. UKIP sources claim concerns arose when they saw the video above purportedly showing Bashir meeting with Pakistani group MQM, which the courts in Canada have twice ruled meets the legal definition of a terrorist organisation. Publicly UKIP are also spinning that that Bashir was suspended following the uncovering of unspecified financial irregularities.  Funny that all this only came out after he joined the Tories…

UPDATE: UKIP have dumped a batch of correspondence suggesting that Amjad’s office was involved an attempt to rig a selection in Bradford. See correspondence here.

UPDATE II: According to the Muslim Labour peer Lord Ahmed, MQM have been clasified as a Tier III terror organisation by the US authorities:

Tier III
These organizations are defined by law as “a group of two or more individuals, whether organized or not, which engages in, or has a subgroup which engages in,” terrorist activity. Tier III organizations are also called “undesignated terrorist organizations” because they qualify as terrorist organizations based on their activities alone without undergoing a formal designation process like Tier I and Tier II organizations.

Instead, the determination of whether a group can be considered a Tier III organization is made on a case-by-case basis,  in connection with the review of an application for an immigration benefit.  Tier III organizations arise and change over time. 

The London Metropolitan Police have MQM leaders under investigation in relation to money laundering.

*Amjad Bashir was apparently a Conservative supporter 15 years ago, his party allegiances are very flexible.

UPDATE III (Sunday, 18:07): UKIP release new attack video asking if Tories properly vetted Bashir:

It is claimed by George Galloway tonight that Bashir was booted out by Respect in 2012.

UKIP suggest there is more to come…

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
