London Muslim as you may know is a very critical Labour supporter and having a look at the Fringe agenda only heightens my anger.
There are hundreds of Fringe events but not one appears to mention the word Muslim in its title. There are "Faith Receptions" held by the Christian Socialist Movement, there is even a fringe event called "don't forget the Chinese vote" by Chinese for Labour but nothing for Muslims who make up 3% of the UK population.
Muslims Freinds of Labour run by a bunch of comedians out of Muhammad Sarwar MP's office is essentially a front organisation for British Pakistanis to kiss each other's arse and has done nothing of political note other than the odd curry dinner.
While all Muslims will be reassured to know our beloved leader Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari Will be gracing a number of fringe events with his presence including a Unite against Fascism one the reality is Muslim political engagement within the party is at an all time low. While the Govt of Bermuda and Gibraltar hold fringe events where is the Muslim world or were they kept at bay by the International Division of the party.
The London Labour spends it time expelling Muslims and perpetuating an all white political hierarchy within London via Ken Clarke who I've said needs to stand down or be kicked out to provide some confidence that London Labour has or is about to turn a corner in their attitude towards Muslims.
An indication of how the political elite and establishment within the Labour Party just don't seem to get it is a fringe event called "How Labour will win a fourth term on Foreign policy". Honest, that is the title and David Milliband the Foreign Secretary is speaking at in on Monday evening. Frankly, I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry.
Not surprisingly once again Labour Freinds of Israel will be there presumably organised by their Director Luciana Berger. However, since my last post Ms Berger has taken down all reference to Labour Freinds of Israel from her blog. Moreover, she seems very quiet about her role in the LFI event on Tuesday evening. As a result and with a special message to the 25% of Muslims in St Pancras and Sommers Town Ward ward if you want to see your prospective Labour Party candidate in action, or if she does a runner, her close colleauges in action the LFI event is on Tuesday 29 September at the Grand, Floor G, with special guest speaker the Israeli Minister of Welfare and Social Services Isaac Herzog. If asked, by the Mossad goons on the door what you are doing say you want to see how Luciana Berger would represent the Muslims in Camden.
