Maajid Nawaz and Tommy Robinson

Yesterday Scrapbook published figures which show that government funding for the Quilliam Foundation — the anti-extremism body linked to former EDL leader Tommy Robinson — has now fallen off a cliff. But they nevertheless received some £186,000 from the Home Office after April 2010.

So why did Quilliam chairman Maajid Nawaz claim on Twitter last month that their government funding “ceased back in 2010” — while complaining that similar organisations still received support?

Something to bear in mind next time they put in a bid.
