There has been a lot of ink used on Jack Straw’s comments about what Muslims should and shouldn’t wear. The Daily’s team is not clever enough to get involved in the rights and wrongs of Islamic theology, but we are interested in Straw and the Labour Party.
So here’s the first The Daily Reader Survey. Answers in the comments section to the following:
1) Is Jack using this issue to raise his profile ahead of a deputy leader bid?
2) Is the controversy helping or harming his chances of being Labour’s next deputy leader?
3) Does raising this issue go down well, or badly, with candidates for the leadership like Brown and Reid?
