Richard Burden MP replies helpfully on Raed Salah

This is a guest post by Rob Marchant,  an activist and former Labour party manager who blogs here at The Centre Left.

For those of you following the fascinating story of the scheduled meeting with racist preacher Raed Salah at the House of Commons, here’s an exchange of letters between myself and Richard Burden MP, who seems caught like a rabbit in the headlights and unable to deal with the fact that Salah is a racist homophobe, when confronted with overwhelming evidence that he is, such as this video. Burden says he believes his “position on these matters to be both consistent and clear”.

Oh, it is, Richard. You sticking your fingers in your ears, saying “la, la, la, I can’t hear you”. That is your position.
