HJS on McFadden sacking over terrorism comments


Tags: , ,

As more details emerge into why Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has moved Shadow Ministers, The Henry Jackson Society is concerned that Britain’s strong response to terrorism is being undermined by the treatment of those MPs taking a strong stance on the issue.

Executive Director Dr Alan Mendoza said: “It appears Pat McFadden MP has been sacked for saying nothing more than any serious security analyst knows is true: that our foreign policy is not the driver for acts of Islamist terrorism against us.

“If Mr Corbyn truly thinks differently, then he is helping validate one of the central claims of jihadists that it is our liberal democratic culture, rather than their twisted worldview, which is responsible for terrorism here.”
