Muslim row Labour candidate, John Cowan, suspended
A Labour candidate has been suspended after allegedly saying on an internet forum that he would not want any children of his to marry a Muslim.
John Cowan, who is said to have admitted paying cash to a cleaner claiming benefits, called the row a "storm in a tea cup".
His suspension comes too late for him to be replaced on the ballot paper for South East Cambridgeshire.
A party spokesman said he hoped voters may "hold their noses" but vote Labour.
