Now what does this tell us about Lord Ahmed? “‘Al Qaeda’ in Commons,” from The Sun, with thanks to Lev:
A TERROR suspect allegedly linked to al Qaeda has visited the Houses of Parliament “” as the guest of a Labour peer.
Former detainee Mahmoud Suliman Ahmed Abu Rideh even sat in the Commons public gallery for a debate.
He was invited to Westminster on Tuesday by Lord Ahmed, who met him at Regent’s Park mosque three weeks ago.
The father of five “” suspected of being a money man for terror groups “” was given a SECURITY sticker for his Parliamentary visit.
And he boasted yesterday of sitting in the Commons gallery, adding: “It was very interesting.”
Shadow Home Secretary David Davis last night said Abu Rideh had been able to “walk around one of the UK”s biggest terror targets”.
Lord Ahmed confirmed he invited Abu Rideh, 34, to see him “” and said he QUIZZED him over the suspected al Qaeda link.
He said: “I gave an appointment to see him this week. He came to see me as a Parliamentarian. It was my duty to hear what he had to say.
“He came through the peers” entrance. He went through the security check and I met him at security. He did not leave me for one second.
“I did not take him into any public gallery.
“I asked him, “˜Have you ever been linked with al Qaeda?” and he denied it.”
Oh, well, then it’s OK.
