Pakistan clans ‘abusing’ British politics

It is well worth reading! Particularly since it features both Lord Ahmed: “Britain’s only Pakistani member of the House of Lords, has fallen foul of Biraderi politics.” (And we know what happend to him). and Shahid Malik: “a member of Labour’s National Executive, told the BBC that the Party has unwittingly allowed the clans to infiltrate British politics by influencing who is chosen from within Pakistani communities to go forward for candidate selection.” (Having had a little problem with his MP expenses Mr Malik had to move on from that role. I understand he was recently acting as a consultant to Tower Hamlets Council ).
