Gilligan versus Rahman

London anti-democratic Islamic forces in action, the facts.

Gilligan, the winner!Gilligan, the winner!
If you want a job done well then choose the best worker you can find. So when it comes to reporting on anything to do with London politics then Andrew Gilligan has made himself the ultimate craftsman of this specialised trade. Gilligan's apprenticeship was served sifting through the fine detail of Ken Livingstone's two terms in office as Mayor of London, this made him many enemies. However, it also brought him the 'Journalist of the Year' award see HERE.

The police would no doubt have been happier had Gilligan not been in the habit of always describing the former head of the Metropolitan Police, Sir Ian Blair, as Nulabour's "top copper".Another Gilligan case proven when we recall that Blair was dismissed by the new Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, for being a road-block to progress.

The left loathe him, one Guardian journalist very much so, but Gilligan showed his worth and independence by becoming a skilled 'Boris watcher' in no time at all. By contrast the Guardian journalist seems to have dropped off the radar.

It was natural that the less than wonderful Lutfur Rahman and the IFE, the Islamic Forum of Europe, should come to the attention of Gilligan.

Old tricks and dirty tricks?

Democracy in action?

On the campaign trail?On the campaign trail?
Watching the Labour leadership battle was a strain, it went on far too long. The tedium numbed many a person's brain and so skewed their judgement. Common sense, not always on show with anything to do with Labour, favoured the Miliband bothers, the rest were make-weights. Before the ballot it was wise to say David Miliband was likely to win, which this blog did. For this would have been the sensible thing to happen but common sense versus Charlie Whelan is not a fair fight so the younger fella got it. During the hustings as the months rolled by the other big battle, Ken Livingstone versus the rest, was being played out to a London only audience. Whoever won the leadership battle would have to come to terms with Livingstone. For he was always an odds-on favourite to win the nomination and to do so 'on his own'.
