Muslim row, Labour candidate suspended
Anything that damages Labour is good news. But perhaps this candidate would have got more votes if he'd stayed on:
A Labour candidate has been suspended after allegedly saying on an internet forum that he would not want any children of his to marry a Muslim.
John Cowan, who is said to have admitted paying cash to a cleaner claiming benefits, called the row a "storm in a tea cup".
Why would any non-Muslim want his children to marry a Muslim? If it's a daughter, she will be subject to all the evils that Islam allows: beating, rape, imprisonment, divorce by repudiation, polygamy. If a son, he will have to convert to Islam to marry a Muslim, with all that entails. To object to such a marriage is natural. Would a Muslim Labour MP have ben suspended for saying that his daughter should not, indeed cannot, marry a non-Muslim?
His suspension comes too late for him to be replaced on the ballot paper for South East Cambridgeshire.
A party spokesman said he hoped voters may "hold their noses" but vote Labour.
Mr Cowan told the BBC it was all "really a storm in a tea cup" adding that "one or two things... were misquoted and taken out of context".
"Out of context"? Looks like he's well on the way to reversion, inshallah.
