In today's (Saturday) Daily Mirror Sadiq Khan, Labour's Shadow Justice Secretary, commented ahead of the Prime Minister's speech in Munich, accusing David Cameron of "writing propaganda for the EDL."

Commenting on this smear, Conservative Party Chairman, Baroness Warsi said:

"For Sadiq Khan to smear the Prime Minister as a right wing extremist is outrageous and irresponsible. David Cameron has made it clear he wants to unite Britain around our common values, and he has done so in measured language. It is right that we make it clear: extremism and Islam are not the same thing."

And she added, "Mr Khan is Labour's Shadow Justice Secretary and ran Ed Miliband's leadership campaign. He must apologise, and Mr Miliband needs urgently to disown his colleague's baseless accusation."
