Uniform row: MP says abusers likely to be Muslim...

Muslims are likely to have been responsible for abuse to members of the Armed services on the streets of Peterborough says Tory MP Stuart Jackson.

The Peterborough MP was interviewed by Jon Gaunt on the radio show Talk Sport following the ban on RAF Wittering personnel wearing their uniforms when visiting Peterborough as posted HERE.

Stuart Jackson told Jon Gaunt that the vast majority of people in Peterborough strongly support the armed forces.

But when the radio presenter asked if people have been abusing our troops, Mr Jackson said it had been mentioned to him that Muslims may be responsible and he thought that was likely, but said they would be unrepresentative of the local Muslim community in Peterborough.
