Is Bradford about to secede from the United Kingdom? You could be forgiven for wondering if it is not a separate ‘country’ these days.
The sitting MP, he of the newly grown ‘Muslim’ beard, the rejection of alcohol, and the new Muslim wife, allegedly cleaved to in a Muslim ceremony, despite the fact that he is currently trying to sue Jemima Khan for claiming that he became a Muslim 10 years ago…has taken the left-wing obsession with ‘dissing’ all that is typically British to new lows. The overriding principle of the far left is a visceral hatred for British heritage and interests.
While British soldiers were dying in Iraq, he toured the Middle East praising the insurgents for their courage and martyrdom. On taking his seat, he refused to take the Oath, instead affirming:
I had to take an oath of allegiance in which I don’t believe, to the Queen and all her heirs and successors, and I have no allegiance to any of them, and I could not possibly swear such a thing on a holy book.
So segregated has Galloway’s new constituency become that there have even been calls from within the Muslim community forÂ it to secede from Britain and become a separate emirate under Sharia Law.
Over the past few days there have been some extraordinary developments in the campaign for local council seats in the May 3rd elections.
First up we have the Respect Party’s candidate for Bowling and Barkerend ward, Mr Asif Khan, on the right in the picture. Mr Khan is demonstrating his charitable good works in this picture, he was allegedly distributing Â£20,000 ‘chugged’ from local Bradford residents to the impoverished tribal inhabitants of the Pakistan/Afghan border lands.
So delighted are the residents of Osama bin Laden’s hiding place to be handed gifts of clothes, food and money, that this activity requires an armed guard and an AK47. Other photographs of Mr Khan on his Facebook page showing his prowess with a variety of lethal weapons are purely and simply due to his membership of theÂ Shipton ‘shooting grounds’. Voters should not be misled into believing that Mr Khan is like that other Bradford resident, Shehzad Tanweer, the suicide bomber of 7/7, who was also fond of being photographed holding lethal weapons. Not at all. No Sir. Definitely not. Absolutely not trying to appeal to the same base anti-British instincts whatsoever.
Mr Khan’s photographs circulating at election time did not impress fellow candidate Amir Hussein.
‘Call yourself a Muslim candidate’? he jeered. ‘Call that a weapon’? Metaphorically of course, he wouldn’t dream of giving such a quote to the press.
However, before you could say ‘Sharia Law for All’ another photograph popped through the front door of the local Telegraph and Argus newspaper.
Now that’s what you call a Muslim candidate…
Sheesh, no wonder George Galloway turned perma-brown and grewÂ a Muslim beard; even the Conservative candidate, John Robertshaw is talking of ‘coming out fighting’ – Yes, but has he got the firepower?
