This one’s for Baby Siddiq…

I moved to the U.K. when I was 16 so I never watched Blue Peter growing up.

However my younger sister (who spent her childhood in North London) got very excited when she saw my photo with Konnie Huq and insisted that I put it on my website.

My sister seemed more impressed with my Konnie photo than my Gordon photo.

Each to their own I guess!

Speaking of sisters, I’m actually friends with Konnie’s sister who is a fellow blogger. She stood as the Labour parliamentary candidate in Chesham and Amersham in 2005 and is a regular columnist for Tribune. You can read her blog here.

Anyway, the photo was taken when I attended an event in Mile End where Konnie spoke about her recent visit to Bangladesh. Konnie travelled to Bangladesh as part of the UK Foreign Office ‘Projecting British Muslims’ programme.

You can read more about her experience here.
