Hunter stands up to Hizb ut-Tahrir

Hunter is on the front page of one of his local rags this week, The Haringey Independent.

Hizb ut-Tahrir, the Islamic Fascist organisation, recently hired Alexandra Palace for a conference. Hunter told the newspaper that "war mongers are not welcome in Haringey" and blasted Ally Pally bosses for giving them permission to use the venue.

Hunter also stood up for democrats, gays, Jews and women. Read more here.

Good for you. Hizb ut tahrir have been a menace on British campuses for years bullying moderate Muslim students into wearing hijab/ growing beards, trying to get them to distance themselves from white students and become involved in jihadi activities. On a local note, it's a shame they ever rebuilt Ally Pally: they should have left it as a ruin. The gross over-development of the site means that it can never be a commercial success without becoming a menace to the whole area. Local roads and transport links could not possibly cope with a fully-utilised Pally.

Hats off to Hunter for this one - the decision stinks. Reminds me of the one quote of Leon Trotsky I fully endorse, that the best way to reason with a fascist is to acquaint him with the pavement.

How sad however that despite banning Hizb ut-Tahrir, the NUS still persists in permitting similar homophobic, misogynistic and anti-Semitic sentiments to be aired in universities by Islamic extremists, all in the name of free speech - whilst simultaneously blocking Israeli goods being sold in university premises, and generally harassing peaceful Jewish Societies and those supportive of Israel.

When considering his first policy team as Leader of the Opposition, Tony Blair was famously sceptical of anyone who had cut their teeth in student politics (former Edinburgh University rector Geardon Broon and ex-NUS President Jack Straw spring to mind).

Just goes to show that Bliar wasn't wrong on everything...
