Bye bye, baby, baby bye...

Intriguing. The "blogosphere" has claimed a scalp - a justified and eminently worthwhile scalp in my view.

The Guardian and Dilpazier Aslam have, how shall we say, parted company
.

The Guardian initially stood by a legalistic defence, arguing that Hizb ut-Tahrir is a legal organisation. So it is. And so is the British National Party and the National Front and if the Guardian found they had a leading BNP or NF activist working for them, he'd be out so fast his feet wouldn't touch the ground.

In fairness to the Guardian, although this result has been slow in coming (and the Guardian's Media section is reacting with extremely bad grace) it seems that many of the actions of their staff in the build-up were undertaken in good faith. But as far as I'm concerned this is the right outcome and I am very, very pleased.

The Guardian has stated that it intends to broaden access to young Muslims with aspirations to succeed in the print news media. This is a perfectly laudable objective. I strongly suggest they hire one of the ones who aren't bigoted Islamist wankers.
