More Churchillian courage in the face of evil from Ken Livingstone. From the Daily Mail, :
Ken Livingstone today defended the right of Abu Hamza’s son to work for a Tube contractor – despite his conviction for terrorism in Yemen.
Mohammed Kamel Mostafa, 25, from Wembley, was given a security pass and had access to restricted areas – including tunnels under Parliament – during his time as a labourer at nights and weekends on the Underground.
But the Mayor said he doubted the veracity of any conviction from Yemen and said Mostafa had passed Tube security checks.
He said it was wrong to restrict his ability to work simply because he was the son of Abu Hamza. Mr Livingstone said: “Has he broken any laws here in Britain? The answer is no. We are happy to have him working for us.
“No one can be blamed for what their parents do. All we ask is that they respect the law of the land and do not hurt anyone.”
His extraordinary intervention came after Tube chiefs were accused of an appalling blunder after allowing Mostafa to work in restricted areas.
