As I said, awfully nice of you and so forth. But I think I might’ve won by breaching the pre-election 'Purdah' rule and thus, not to be given a pint of the Dutch beer. Rather, I ought to be defenestrated with utmost possible speed. Purdah is believed to be Persian for ‘veil’ which, at the moment, brings to my highly disorganised mind the curious case of Lutfur Rahman (incidentally, his Christian, no, I mean, his first name is “لطف” and thus, the ‘r’ is inescapably intrusive – the one you hear British people inserting intravocalically when they say stuff like “ I sawr it”, “President Obamar is” or “Indiar and …” etc) and how he got quickly dethroned after having exerted in his campaign activities so-called “spiritual coercion” on fellow Muslims in Tower Hamlets and its mosques, that it was their Islamic duty to vote for him.
