Senior Labour figures face backlash after segregating women from men at rally
by Paul Daniel
Five senior Labour Party figures faced a furious backlash last night after giving a talk at a meeting where women appeared to be banned from sitting with men.
Parliamentary candidates Tom Watson, Liam Byrne, Khalid Mahmood and Jack Dromey, along with MEP Sion Simon, attended the political rally in Birmingham.
Pictures posted on Twitter showed Muslim women sitting in a small cluster on one side of what looked like an Islamic community centre with the men seated opposite.
