‘Pat Condell at his brilliant, hilarious and topical best’

At least, that’s how the fascists of the BNP describe the latest anti-Muslim video from the National Secular Society’s favourite comedian. This one is on the Gillian Gibbons case: “Well, it’s another public relations triumph for Islam…. I bet they’re even laughing at this over in Pakistan.” Pakistan and its inhabitants, of course, being a byword for ignorance and backwardness.

But could Condell not at least give credit to the Muslim Council of Britain, I hear you ask, for their unequivocal condemnation of Gillian Gibbons’ arrest and conviction? But you’re forgetting, according to Condell the MCB are nothing more than “duplicitous, mealy-mouthed, unprincipled, terrorist-sympathising scum“.
