Al-Qaeda are f***ed now...

Patience Wheatcroft has penned a good piece at the Torygraph on how Tony and NuLabour plan to deal with Islamists: podcasts of video extracts of roadshows starring mainstream Islamic scholars. Pretty impressive stuff, obviously.
The podcasts are apparently entitled the Radical Middle Way (!?!) podcasts. One of the leading figures behind the Preventing Extremism Together initiative is Sir Richard Mottram. He will best be remembered for his previous work at the Department of Transport where when Railtrack went off the rails, Sir Richard memorably summed up the situation as "We're all f---ed".

Al-Qaeda must be quaking in their boots/sandals etc.

A master stroke by Field Marshal Blair.

Tony Blair's seems to have succeeded in embarrassing thousands of members of New Labour into leaving the Party, membership is half of what it was in 1997.

Depressingly he now seems intent on embarrasingly moderate Muslims in Britain to reject their core beliefs and take up with salifism.

Who would want to be associated with a church or a mosque or a temple certified by Blair and Prescott?

Excellent critique of new labour by Oliver James here http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,1929064,00.html

Not I, sir.

Sir Richard Mottram, his summation is one of the best ever by a civil servant.

As for this iniative; Osama will be shaking in his cave and turning to the bottle.
