Next weekend Brighton Pavillion Labour Party will be selecting their prospective parliamentary candidate for the next general election. One of the front runners is the extremist anti-Islam bigot, Anne Marie Waters. She recently spoke at the Oxford Union, arguing that “Islam is not a religion of peace”, which brought her the glowing endorsement from the English Defence League website. The EDL London division has previously tweeted their admiration for Anne Marie Waters.
Even more alarmingly, Anne Marie Waters, has now also received endorsement from the militant “counter-Jihad” blog called “Gates of Vienna”, which carries the writings of “Fjordman”, one of the intellectual inspirations for Norwegian terrorist and mass murderer, Anders Behring Breivik. Fjordman advocates the forcible deportation of Muslims from Europe. Remember that on Channel Four, Anne Marie Waters herself argued that Muslims should leave the UK.
The Gates of Vienna website says:
“I’ve never encountered Anne-Marie Waters before, but I like the cut of her jib in this Oxford Union debate.”
If Anne Marie Waters is selected as a Labour PPC for a winnable seat, then it will drag the party into appalling conflict. Let us hope that the CLP members in Brighton Pavillion see sense.
(incidently, the rot is spreading and in Croydon Central’s selection, Catriona Ogilvy, is herself boasting the support of Anne Marie Waters.)
