Muslim slammed for speaking at event with ministers

A Muslim is facing questions over his judgement after appearing at the same event as members of a government that suggested killing Iraqis was justified.

Azad Ali spoke at yesterday’s Progressive London conference, which was also attended by Equalities Minister Harriet Harman and Energy Secretary Ed Miliband.

Another Muslim said:

"This Muslim may have once justified the hypothetical killing of British troops, but this government authorized the actual killing of innocent Iraqis. I don't know what the Muslim was thinking!"

Also at the event was the controversial head of a bus drivers union. In recent year bus drivers have been implicated in a number of road deaths.

Some have even been linked to bendy buses.

A spokesman for the Muslim said today:

"This Muslim did not share a platform with any cabinet ministers. You should speak to the organisers of the event about who they have invited."

In other News, somebody asked: "Is this the same Andrew Gilligan who worked for Iranian state television alongside holocaust deniers and anti-semites?"

Hang on didn't Ken Livingstone also appear on Press TV? D'Oh!

Hang on. Didn't I also appear at the Progressive London conference?

I think you may have missed the point.

"Meanwhile, Mr Miliband spoke about tackling climate change on the platform vacated by Mr Ali."

Ed should check he's not pregnant, frankly.

I went to City hall once, Andrew Gilligan was in the same building at the same time.

I must say, before that I was totally against his bendy bus jihad, but since then I'm not so sure.

Hell, I even made some posts under a completely different user name recently.

The MCB has called an urgent Cabinet meeting and has recalled the said Muslim to explain himself.

Meanwhile the Ministers are denying that they voted for to kill innocent people...they didn't know Tony Blair was lying!

OMG. I once *touched* Jeffrey Archer - should I seek urgent medical advice?

"I'd suggest a shower will do"

Nitric acid. It's the only way to be safe.

Typical of a certain someone in the pay of the Telegraph who wants to pursue his anti-Ken obsession.

Gilligan's article was yet another attack on a Muslim who refuses to lie down and be scared into silence.
