THE KLU Klux Klan are operating in Bethnal Green and Bow, in east London, according to Oona King, Labour MP for the area.

She told Tony Blair during question time that ethnic minorities represent an opportunity, not a threat. "While this country has no need of pointed white hats, in this Chamber we could perhaps do with a bit more colour," she said. Mr Blair said measures had been introduced into the Crime and Disorder Bill to fight racism.
