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?"
