Sound MP of the day - Khalid Mahmood

Hooray! At least there is one member of the PLP avoiding this weekend's rush for the cliffs.

Well done to Khalid Mahmood MP (Birmingham Perry Barr) for having the guts to say this (according to the Guardian - http://www.guardian.co.uk/religion/Story/0,,1844109,00.html):

"Khalid Mahmood, the Muslim MP for Perry Barr in Birmingham, said he had refused to sign the letter and accused those behind it of "grandstanding"."It is just an attempt to raise their own individual profiles so they can ... appease some of the more radical elements of Islam."
