Safeena, 24, said of her 23-year-old brother: â€œHe saw it as his duty to stand up for his community and that’s what led him to know George Galloway. He has a lot of respect for him and has met him many times.â€ … A spokesman for MP Galloway, above, said: â€œWaheed Zaman is not a name that George is familiar with. He is not known to him on a personal level.â€
Of course not. Perish the thought. But what’s that they say about birds of a feather?
In other fun UK Terror Plot news, it seems that another suspect, David Stewart-Whyte, aka Abdul Waheed, has a father who used to be a Coservative Party official. Not only that, but Victoria’s Secret model, Heather Stewart-Whyte is Waheed’s half-sister. Heather, 36, used to be married to tennis star Yannick Noah. Their 5 year marriage, which ended acrimoniously, produced 2 children. Heather was once the face of Gucci, reportedly earning Â£1 million a year, and has appeared in fashion shows with Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. She claims today to have never met her half-brother who converted to Islam 6 months ago.
Waheed is, of course, innocent till proven guilty, but I can’t help thinking that there are a number of hardened English criminals sitting in maximum security who are looking forward to uh… being with the closest thing they’ll ever come to a real live Victoria’s Secret Model.
That’s her on the right… in case you were wondering. Or in case you have some unsavoury friends doing uh… hard time in prison in the UK and you wanted to give them a heads up about the impending arrival of a quasi-celebrity…
