Faking Photos: Is That Labour Candidate Busharat Ali?

As LibDem Voice tells us: “Busharat Ali is the Labour candidate in Lawrence Hill ward, Bristol. He didn’t like being attacked in a Liberal Democrat leaflet over Blair and Iraq.

“He responded with a leaflet that said: ‘I was on the National March in London against the Iraq war”. His missive is reported to have come equipped with the photograph to the right.

Does he oppose in Iraq. Does he support the repulsive Hizbollah and support attacks on Israel? Or is it all just case of mistaken identity?

Fans of Busharat Ali can check out his videos here. They are worth a look. And see him with Tony Blair here.
