It's quite sad really.

The Islamophobia in the Tory party seems huge compared with the anti semite stuff in both parties.

When Ahmed (not his real name) joined the Conservative party six years ago, he thought it was a natural fit. “A lot of Muslims share conservative values,” he says. “I stood to be a councillor and there was talk of me going on to the party lists to become an MP.”

He says he worked hard during election time, increasing the south Asian vote in his ward in Yorkshire. But a simple question about postal votes to the MP suddenly made him feel like he did not belong in the party. “I just asked a question,” he says. “In no way did I insinuate that I was going to do anything silly or illegal regarding postal votes.

But his response was ‘This is the UK, sunshine’. It was really patronising – would he have said that to someone not of colour? He was inferring that I wasn’t British.”

He then overheard other members talking disparagingly about another candidate of Pakistani heritage in a different ward. Not long after, he heard another party member say “the only good Muslims are Ahmadiyya Muslims”. “That’s like saying the only good Christians are the Coptics,” he says. “It’s insulting to all the others.”

Seeing Islamophobic comments on local party Facebook groups was common, he says. “It wasn’t a nice experience in the party. Those in the right of the party you felt a sense of being looked down upon, they were patronising you. The whispers weren’t nice at all. But now those same members are very Islamophobic on their Facebook posts, now you see it quite openly.”


‘You mention Islamophobia and they run for the hills,’ said one Muslim Tory councillor.


The heat is on - time for the Tories to get some back. Expect contrite MPs on TV this weekend, promising a crackdown and that 'lessons will be learned' etc. DON'T BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY - THEY ARE TORIES...

A Tory councillor has been suspended after he allegedly posted Islamophobic comments about the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, The Independent can reveal.

Stephen Ardley, a councillor on the Waveney District Council, allegedly said it was “unbelievable” that a Muslim had been elected and went on to describe those who voted for him as “blind”.

The comments add to the growing list of examples of Islamophobia demonstrated by Conservative councillors and candidates in recent months, amid growing pressure for the party to launch an inquiry into the issue.

Mr Ardley’s comment on a Facebook post said: “I think it’s unbelievable that a Muslim was actually elected the Mayor of this great Christian country – oh wait he’s labour so the blind just vote red and left.”

He is also following a page on the social media site which is titled English and Proud which includes a number of posts calling for the release of former EDL leader, Tommy Robinson, who was jailed for 13 months for breaking contempt of court laws with a Facebook Live video.


What a surprise.

Jeremy Corbyn has called for an inquiry into allegations of Islamophobia within the Conservative party.

The Tories have been under pressure since the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) called for an investigation, highlighting a range of claims including candidates and other representatives allegedly having far-right connections or sending offensive tweets.

The Labour leader backed calls for an investigation on Monday night after home secretary Sajid Javid rejected the proposition of an inquiry, which gained support from Conservative peer Sayeeda Warsi.

“I think if there are allegations made then an inquiry should be held and it should be addressed and it should be dealt with,” Corbyn told the Press Association at a west London mosque.

“Islamophobia, as with antisemitism, as with any other form of racism, has no place whatsoever in our society or in any of our political parties. Nobody should be condoning it, nobody should be hiding it, everybody should be exposing it.”


Good man - keep the pressure on the vile Tory Islamophobes.

No, the Islamophobia in the Tory Party that May has done nothing about, here to help.

calling people 'racist'. A staple of the phony Godless pseudoliberal.
It is very effective though.Puts people on the defensive and deflects from the vacuousness of the pseudoliberal argument.
An old trick taught by demons like Saul Alinsky

No, it was a response to the orchestrated claims from enemies of JC.

The organised protest of anti Semitism was also part of a wider campaign to get anti Semitism re-defined as anything critical of Israel.

Gullible sorts might have believed it but the more attentive in the world see what's going on, especially given the Gaza atrocities which the US blocked an investigation in to at the UN and Britain bravely abstained from voting on.
