That would be a political ”waterloo” for any ethnic (Anglo) British politician speaking at an event organized by a group that praised a murderous racist supremacist.
But since it’s a Muslim group…oh well, the Islmonazi Sadiq Khan gets a pass.
London mayor Sadiq Khan’s new ‘integration’ deputy spoke at event run by group which called Jihadi John a ‘beautiful man’
- Matthew Ryder QC is London’s new deputy mayor for social integration
- In 2013 he spoke at a conference organised by advocacy group CAGE
- CAGE last year defended ISIS executioner Jihadi John
- Then director Asim Qureshi described the terrorist as a ‘beautiful man’
London’s new deputy mayor for integration once spoke at an event run by a notorious organisation that described Jihadi John as ‘a beautiful man’, it has emerged.
Matthew Ryder QC will join Sadiq Khan’s team at City Hall, tasked with helping to ensure ‘Londoners from different faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds and social classes are better integrated’ in the city.
He is considered one of the country’s leading barristers in crime, human rights, media and privacy.

The conference was chaired by then director Asim Qureshi, pictured. Mr Qureshi last year called ISIS executioner Mohammed Emwazi, better known as Jihadi John, a ‘beautiful man’
In 2013 Mr Ryder shared his legal experience at a conference organised by advocacy CAGE, which provoked a public outcry last year after it defended ISIS executioner Mohammed Emwazi, better known as Jihadi John.
CAGE blamed the security services for Emwazi’s actions, while then director Asim Qureshi called the knife-wielding terrorist a ‘beautiful, gentle young man’.
A video of the September 2013 event shows Mr Qureshi introducing Mr Ryder. Mr Qureshi has since been replaced as director.
