The fundamentalist-linked Labour politician and the extremist solicitor

Gilligan has the story.

Lutfur Rahman, IFE/Jamaat-e-Islami’s entryist candidate for Mayor of Tower Hamlets, has hired a lawyer to force Labour into re-interviewing him, in the hope of getting back on the Party shortlist.

And who did he hire to represent him?

None other than Makbool Javaid, the man who one described himself as “Master of Kuffar Laws”. What a wanker.

Makbool Javaid’s name also appeared – in February 1998 – on a fatwa declaring jihad – by all means including military – against the UK and the US.

What do you reckon Lutfur Rahman’s chances of getting the Labour nomination are? I’d say close to zero.
