Yes, Tariq did vote for the Lib Dems and, yes, he did mount a platform to support certain Respect candidates. It is a position that Tariq has not reneged on, and is not incongruous by any means.

If it is wrong to vote Lib Dem in a constituency like Hornsey and Wood Green, then you must argue that it is right to vote for Barbara Roche who constantly pays fealty to Blair. Surely it is those willing to support warmongers like Roche who have the explaining to do, not Tariq.
