Today’s Evening Standard leads with the headline, “Suicide bomb backer runs Ken campaign.”  The Standard alleges that Azzam Tamimi, who is a leading figure in the Muslims for Ken campaign, is on record as both praising suicide bombing and suggesting that he himself would be prepared to be one. “If I can go to Palestine and sacrifice myself I would do it. Why not?”

If this quote is accurate, then Ken must disassociate himself from Tamimi and accept no help from his organisation.
