TowerHamletistan Update: Downing Street probe into controversial London council ‘over suspected links to Islamic extremists’

An embattled London council is being probed over its links to Muslim extremists, a report reveals.

Tower Hamlets council is already under investigation for alleged fraud after mayor Lutfur Rahman doubled recommended funding to Bengali-run charities in an apparent attempt to buy favour.
But now a leaked government report suggests the mayor and his finance minister, Alibor Choudhury, have links to Islamic extremist groups, including one seeking to set up a Sharia state in Europe.
