Galloway praises NUJ action at Daily Star


Respect MP George Galloway has put down an Early Day Motion praising the actions of NUJ members at the Daily Star which led to the paper pulling its spoof Daily Fatwa page. The page purported to show what the Star would be like if it was published under Sharia law.

The EDM states: "That this House congratulates the members of the National Union of Journalists who called an emergency union meeting to persuade management not to publish a reckless, inflammatory, Islamaphobic spoof page in the Daily Star; and believes that the journalists' action is a model for the rest of the media of responsible behaviour."
