Craig Murray: blogger under threat
Craig Murray, the blogger and former diplomat, has come under threat of legal action by an outfit called the Quilliam Foundation. According to Craig:
The Quilliam Foundation is the branch of New Labour tasked with securing the Muslim vote and reducing British Muslim dissatisfaction with New Labour over the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. If they wanted to do that with New Labour money, that would be their own business. But I object fundamentally to their doing it with my and your money.
Well, they are using public funds to try and silence a strong critic of British foreign policy, especially the wars against Iraq and Afghanistan.
More when we have it. In the meantime you might want to pop over to Craig's site and leave a message of sympathy and support.
