There's a surprise!
On Thursday I predicted that the assistant chief constable of West Yorkshire Jawaid Akhtar, who has been attending the Hajj as an observer, would not criticise the Saudis over the latest carnage:
“I bet we won’t hear a bad word said when he returns from his little jaunt.”BBC news yesterday:
Jawaid Aktar (sic), the assistant chief constable of West Yorkshire police in the UK who has just returned from Saudi Arabia, said the authorities were well prepared for the Hajj.
"The authorities were very well organised given the scale of the event," he told BBC Radio Leeds.
