The Hip Sir Teddy Taylor & UAF
First posted: 27th June, 2011
Sir Teddy Taylor shaking a voter's hand. In Pakistan, politicians pay
for votes. In the UK, they give them mosques, schools, blacked-out
windows at swimming baths, halal meat, toilets which face away from
Mecca, special times to pray, women-only this and women-only that... ad infinitum.]
What about the odd fusion of Islamism and Trotskyism in Unite Against Fascism?
It seems absurd that these two ideologies could fuse.
Anyway. It is not really the case that they have somehow fused
as ideologies. The Trotskyites are simply the ‘useful idiots’ of the
And the Trotskyites think that the Islamists are their ‘useful idiots’.
They are using each other to further their own political ends.
In any case, that may not be completely correct about a
possible fusion. In terms of being completely against the British
Government (in every detail), distorting and manufacturing facts to
serve your ends, using violence to get what one wants, and seeing the
world in black-and-white terms, then Islamism and Trotskyism (or the
SWP) are very much alike.

On the UAF members or supporters list.
I reckon that David Cameron, as well as many other well-meaning
people, didn’t know who was really running the UAF show. Cameron is a
busy man. But even if he was busy at the time he signed up (I don't
think he's still on the website list), every politician nowadays has to
be 'against Islamophobia’ otherwise he or she would lose few thousand –
or a lot more - votes.
Sir Teddy Taylor, MP, was also once on the list. I’m sure he’s
‘anti-fascist’ too. He's also anti-Trotskyist. If he had known who ran
the UAF, he would have stopped being a member. (If this hasn’t already
happened and UAF have kept him on its list.)
