The Quilliam Foundation’s staff numbers have been rather drastically shrinking in the past year not least due to a reduction in the amount of money they have been getting from the government due to cutbacks. But it seems they still have enough funding to take on one more person in the shape of Usama Hasan. The appointment doesn’t come as much surprise. Usama’s trajectory has been clear for some time now.
Last year, a number of pro-Israel MPs came together and scheduled a debate in parliament to demand that the government continue to provide funds to the Quilliam Foundation.
