It was reported yesterday how the ‘shouty triumvirate’ of Mehdi Hasan, Seumus Milne and Jeremy Corbyn MP were tag-teaming up for a debate at the Cambridge Union entitled, “This House Regrets the Consequences of U.S. Dominance”.
But in an apparently not unpredictable turn of events, Mehdi Hasan, Political Editor for the Huffington Post UK site who is famed for his disparaging comments about non-Muslims and atheists, failed to show.
When quizzed by The Commentator’s Executive Editor on Twitter, Hasan wasted no time jumping into insults, proclaiming, “Some trolls want to know why I wasn’t at Cambridge union tonight. Simple answer: I never agreed to do it. Union made mistake in term card.”
Sources at the Cambridge Union Society however, beg to differ. In fact, it is particularly unlike the Cambridge Union, the oldest and arguably most august student debating institution in the country, to make a ‘mistake’ in the term card.
Sources tell The Commentator that it is apparently not the first time that Hasan has failed to show for a debate at Cambridge.
