Last night's TV

I switched on half-way through Channel 4's Operation Muslim Vote documentary last night, which followed the activities of MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Committee), an organisation campaigning for greater involvement of British Muslims in the democratic process, in the run-up to the Election.

I don't know much about MPAC, and there's some debate to be had around what 'the Muslim vote' might actually be, but I really admired the determination of Asghar and Mudasser. They might sometimes have been flying by the seat of their pants (fact-checking is probably quite important in a leafleting campaign), but they got out there and got people thinking and talking. Good stuff.
