Hail to Xenu

Norman Baker Watch today came across an Evening Standard article from January where Norman Baker rallies against Labour and the Tories for allowing a charity linked to the cult of Scientology to buy exhibition space at their annual conferences.

"Scientology is a dubious cult at best and it's worrying that it seems to have inflitrated both Labour and the Tories," says Baker.

But strangely Baker forgot to mention that his party has led the way on Scientology in politics.

Way back in 1996, the Lib Dems gave Britain its first Scientologist politician in the form of Lord McNair, who told Parliament: "My Lords, in asking this question I have to tell the House that I have an interest in it. I am a member of the Church of Scientology."

You can find out more about the work of the Lib Dem Scientologist peer here.

Surely the state of Baker's own party should be warning enough of the dangers of Scientology to both the Labour and Conservative parties.
