While the Channel is perfectly entitled to appeal what I found disappointing is the accompanying comments calling into question the objectivity of the regulator.
As I've mentioned of course the regulator is biased but sadly and more importantly the Channel has allowed itself to be completely outmanoeuvred by comedians at Quilliam like Talal Rajab (pictured) who resembles the child actor Gary Coleman from Different Strokes.
The issue here is compliance so rather than digging a deeper hole for themselves and crying foul the strategy needs to be finessed in order to adapt and respond effectively to continued attacks by those who use inexperienced presenters to mask their wider and deeper hostility towards a Channel that is a voice for the voiceless.
London Muslim with a left of center political agenda but dont let that put you off.
I write about issues the mainstream Murdoch agenda ignores and more than happy to also take on the tiny minority of vociferous fruitcakes in my own community.
In addition I'm a long suffering supporter of QPR. So, a Muslim with a sense of humour
