Me on BBC Radio 4 PM

You can listen to me on BBC Radio 4 PM programme by clicking on the link below, I appear on 24 minutes toward the end of the programme.

I appeared and spoke on the recent media coverage on the girls guide reaching out to Ethnic Minority girls.

Let me have your comments

Simon Hughes is still best choice

In three days time we will have a new leader for the libdems, I hope it is Simon Hughes as he has the strength and commitment to liberal values to put the party in a stronger position to face the challenges ahead.

Over the six week campaign Simon has shown his amazing knowledge of all areas and strong belief in taking the party forward.

However who ever is elected will have my support and commitment, bring it on David Cameron!!!

My views on the week!!!

Tomorrow over 500 000 people will gather in London for a peaceful demonstration the cartoons that were published. This was pure hatred for Islam and Muslims, we must fight these people intellectually and in peaceful ways.

Let there be no defence of this despicable crime and let those people who carried out apologies for the sake of inter community relations.

The second issue I want to touch on is the current allegations against the Rochdale Committee for Islamic Affairs, this was set up recently and claims to be representative and also independent of party politics. This surprises me as the three main figures are active in the Labour Party, they have no Lib Dems or Conservatives on the group and also very selective in the work they carry out and people they have on the committee.

We the real Muslim representatives will shortly gather to begin the process to set up a new Group called Rochdale Muslim Council, it will have representatives from Mosques, community groups, voluntary organisations and individual Muslims in Rochdale. We will intend to show then how it is done. I abhor those that attack me and my party but on my face they are all nice, lets see an end to this.

Watch this space for further news.
