Wonder what you make of the bizarre news that the Member of  Parliament who heads the parliamentary body scrutinising Britain’s counter-terrorism laws has addressed a rally at which a plea for support for suicide bombers was broadcast?

The truly wretched Keith Vaz, the chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, addressed the annual Tamil rally in the ExCel centre in East London.  He spoke after participants watched a televised address by Velupillai Prabhakaran, the commander of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a terrorist organisation banned by the Home Office. Mr Vaz, the MP for Leicester East, was joined by a fellow Labour MP, Joan Ryan.

Their presence drew an angry response from the Sri Lankan High Commission, which released a statement claiming that the event was a “clear violation of the UK terrorism laws”. 

The likes of Vaz will see nothing wrong in this. It is all part of the Orwellian reality which now confronts us. This explains why goons like Vaz – tasked with ensuring the effectiveness of British anti-terrorism laws – participates in a rally which both supports and glorifies terrorism. It is the natural thing for them to do. They are the enemy within.
