‘Giving Islamophobia a pass:’ Conservative MP accused of spreading anti-Muslim message

A Tory MP has been accused of “giving Islamophobia a pass” after sharing social media posts from a US-based anti-Muslim website.

While the Labour Party, in particular leader Jeremy Corbyn, faces accusations of anti-Semitism, Conservative MP for Harrow East Bob Blackman has become embroiled in his own racism row.

He shared a story with the headline “Muslim Somali sex gang say raping white British children ‘part of their culture’” from the website Hardcore News USA.
