Shadow minister under pressure

Joe Dyke and Ellie Buchdahl, Independent, Tories 'want Muslims out of London', says shadow minister, 17 Mar 2011

"A Labour shadow minister was last night facing calls for her dismissal after she was recorded saying that the Government "don't want Muslims living in central London". In an extraordinary attack, Karen Buck – Shadow Work and Pensions Minister – also said that ministers were "deeply hostile" to poor people having children. Last night the Conservative Party Chairman Baroness Warsi said the remarks were "deeply offensive" and called on Ed Miliband to remove her from Labour's frontbench."
