I thought I would speak about something closer to home namely Luftur Rahman, our East End Mayor of Tower Hamlets , the borough that will host the London Olympics. He is a paid up member of Galloway’s fascist respect party and unfortunately for everyone living here was voted with little more than 20percent of the vote, which speaks volumes about the public outrage inside trendy Tower Hamlets home of the hipster scene, Bricklane, Spitalfiends market etc etc..
Last week he took part in 75th anniversary of the Cable Street Marches and hasn’t stopped having his photo or articles published by a gullible press who see him as something of a Anti-Fascist hero. his twitter feed is full of it. safe ground methinks..
This recent clip on Bengali TV,
yes its the same station who helped him win local support by smearing opponents with allegations of wife beating , as he cultivates his new pubic persona standing up like the Jews against Mosely and the blackshirts. The only issue here he’s also a fascist and a very nasty one.
Andrew Gilligan one of the few brave journalists whom has taken up the challenge and the status quo writes endlessly to expose him and his cronies.
The naive and foolish Guardian have given this hypocritical man a platform to blur fact and fiction.
What will it take before the Guardian Newspaper stops promoting this vile create, sadly in the run-up to the Olympics we shall all suffer more pubic displays of fakery.
