Years ago I wrote (link) about how Britain's leading political parties had been infiltrated by Muslims with demonstrable jihadi connections and comment how shocking it was that this went completely unremarked, as if we now just shrugged our shoulders and accepted as inevitable that Muslims would have such ties.
Now that Sadiq Khan is poised to become mayor of London, the Conservatives have been publicly decrying his questionable associations. David Cameron even did so in the Commons today (video). But why didn't they do it before? As it is, they've left it too late. Khan's credibility should have been attacked years ago and worn down through a process of attrition. Now they are trying to spring this on the voters after years of not having said a word.
Khan was prospective home secretary under Ed Miliband. If Labour had won the last election, Sadiq Khan would be the one now responsible for protecting Britain from Islamic radicalism! How can the Conservatives justify their prior silence about this issue when the job of Home Secretary is far more important than that of London's mayor?
David Cameron was met with cries of “racist” in the House of Commons as he joined attacks on Labour’s London mayoral candidate, Sadiq Khan, claiming he has shared a platform with extremists.
The prime minister laid into Khan during prime minister’s questions, claiming the Labour candidate had nine times shared a platform with a known Islamist extremist called Sulaiman Ghani.Source
