Labour does love it's Terrorist chums ....

According to the Sun Online - a link I found visiting Dodgeblogium - a Labour Peer (one of Tony's donors no doubt) has been extremely helpful to an al Qaeda sympathiser. Completely ignoring the security issues, Lord Ahmed invited a man with known al Qaeda sympathies arrested recently in a round up (much belated!) of terrorist suspects and gave him a personal tour of the Houses of Parliament. Nothing like the personal touch to help someone case the joint!

Labour have always had a difficult blindspot when it comes to terrorists. They simply cannot shake off their love of anyone who opposes the US, the English Establishment, Capitalism or anything else that can be labelled conveniently as "working class struggle" for justice. Look at how many Labour supporters sport Che Guevarra badges, tee-shirts and other paraphenalia. When challenged they make excuses about "it's not about the man, it's about his ideals", completely ignoring that fact that this man was shunned by his supposed mentor Fidel Castro because even Dr Castro could see that Che was a psychopath! As for those other organisations, let's see - Pol Pot's little group (around 5 million dead), the Vietcong (something similar to Cambodia), dear old uncle Joe Stalin (30 million), Moa Tse Tung (anywhere between 30 and 50 million dead) the IRA ( probably small fry in the killing stakes, but whose counting?) the MPLA in Angola, the ANC in South Africa and dear Robert Mugabe's ZANU group in Zimbabwe. All at one time or another promoted and supported by Labour as being the best representatives for the "downtrodden masses".

We should not be surprised that a Labour Peer has invited an al Qaeda supporter into the Palace of Westminster, we should be surprised that it has leaked this early. We should be even more surprised that Labour's Spin Machine isn't already trying to pin it on someone else!
