The Hip Sir Teddy Taylor & UAF

First posted: 27th June, 2011

[Above: 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 Islamists.
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.)
