The Loony Left

They'll never forgive Blair for having the guts to take this country into war. The Liberals and the Respect Coalition should be utterly ashamed of themselves for making light of the plight of Iraqi democrats while piously courting the Islamofascist vote in this country. Take this shameless passage from Respect's website:

Muslims have been on the receiving end of an ideological offensive since 11
September 2003. Hundreds have been arrested. They have been abused and
scapegoated by a spectrum of political figures that runs from New Labour
ministers to the leaders of the BNP. Respect is proud that many Muslims stood as
Respect candidates, worked for the campaign and voted for Respect. "Labour used
to be proud of the support it got from Asians in the inner cities" said one
Respect supporter in Birmingham recently. "But now Asians are voting for other
parties Labour call it a 'Muslim vote'."

These sad sacks are seriously claiming that standing on policies that Muslims want to vote for isn't appealing to the Muslim vote. Perhaps Mr Rees, the author of the above screed, would like to explain Oliur Rahman's words to Weekly Worker?:

"The mosques situated in the ward were very supportive".

Foot in mouth there, I think.

Incidentally, WW also records the attempts by SWP scum to muscle in on the European Social Forum. Shit sticks together, I say.
