Tories accused of ‘bare-faced lies’ over schools’ HT links

A political row has broken out over claims public money was given to two schools which, the Tories say, have links to Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. Tory leader David Cameron suggested money from an “anti-extremist fund” had been given to “extremists”. But Schools Secretary Ed Balls accused the Conservatives of “playing politics” and making “untrue” allegations. Hizb ut-Tahrir said it did not run any school and accused Mr Cameron of “bare-faced lies”.
