MPACUK claims responsibility for defeat of Andrew Dismore in Hendon

Times Series: Andrew Dismore made an angry speech after losing on Friday morning Andrew Dismore made an angry speech after losing on Friday morning

A MUSLIM group is claiming responsibility for Andrew Dismore's defeat in the Hendon seat yesterday.

The Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) ran a campaign against the Labour MP who they accuse of being a staunch Zionist in the Hendon constituency, which he lost by 106 votes.

On its website MPAC has celebrated the result, saying: “Dismore (who backed the Iraq war and has a long record of Islamophobia) has MPACUK and the Muslims of Hendon to thank for his early retirement. We're waiting for his card and flowers...

“We were planning Andrew Dismore’s downfall for a long time and the General Election was our chance to give Dismore both barrels.”

Conservative Matthew Offord took the seat, although Mr Dismore has said he has not ruled out legal action over how the election was conducted.

I'm afraid to say that the only person responsible for the defeat of Andrew Dismore is Andrew Dismore.

This is clearly an attempt by this group to hijack a general change of mood in Hendon. I've voted for Andrew Dismore every time he won. I was a member of the Labour party until September. Did this change because of MPAC? Nope, never heard of them before this article. It changed because I became disillusioned with the Labour party.

In the aftermath of the election many groups and individuals are making blatently dishonest statements. If MPAC can prove that they have 110 voters who voted for Offord this time and Dismore last time, I may believe them.

If they don't it is a lie and as a religious based organisation, they should be ashamed of themselves. Put up or shut up. Show us your torn up membership cards.

What is wrong with Muslim if above is true? Anything happens -good or bad mostly bad some muslim groups claim its ownership. God sake uses your head and keeps near to the reality.
I agree with Rog comments on the election not what the MPACUK is allegedly claiming.

I ask the Hendon Times Online Editor to remove the post by 'royal edgware.'
For your info royal, All MPs work hard but few waste as much time on asking the same questions for more hours than any other. Do you know how your Constitution and how it works?
