Craig Murray stands as Independent in Blackburn

Craig Murray, former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, is standing as an Independent candidate in Blackburn, currently held (until Parliament was prorogued for the General Election) by Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw. Craig Murray's weblog is here; the link has also been added to my blogroll.

Craig Murray was withdrawn as British Ambassador to Uzbekistan last October and suspended on full pay, because of criticisms he had made that the UK used intelligence gained as a result of torture of terrorist suspects by the Uzbekistan authorities. I wrote about Mr Murray last December.
