UPDATE: No one likes a laugh at Labour’s expense more than me, but Norfolk Blogger is entirely wrong to take this latest example is indicative of how “Labour” campaigns.
As Lib Dems, we get this sort of slur all the time – you will recall I went a bit off the rails last week because Francis Maude was attempting to brand the party as racist on the basis of a single unfortunate incident. It isn’t true when other parties play this game, and it isn’t true when we do the same.
It would appear that Busharat Ali has shown himself to be unfit for public office; serious questions have to be asked about Bristol Labour’s judgement in selecting him, and allowing him to publish this leaflet. But there is no evidence to suggest that this is part of a wider tendency within Labour.
Take the piss, and certainly don’t vote for Busharat Ali, but reading more into this than is credible simply lowers the tone of political discourse.
