Ed Miliband to open a new chapter with the Muslim community

Well, that’s the headline to Ahmed Versi’s interview with the Labour Party leader in the Muslim News. Whether Ed Miliband’s statements justify that headline you can make up your own mind. I would say they don’t.

It’s not Ahmed Versi’s fault. He poses some sharp questions – on Cameron’s “multiculturalism” speech, Labour’s relations with the MCB, counter-terrorism policy, failure by British governments to take action over Israel’s breach of UN resolutions, Labour’s attitude to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, etc – but Miliband just waffles and fudges the issues.
