Tory Candidate Azi Ahmed - lied about her SAS training
Azi Ahmed, an entrepreneur and former Tory parliamentary candidate, published a book in 2015 in which she claimed to have almost passed selection training for the SAS – Britain’s top special forces unit. Military sources accuse her of lying.Ahmed, who campaigned to become MP for Rochdale in 2015 and markets herself as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker, wrote a book about her SAS experiences in 2015.
Titled “Worlds Apart: A Muslim Girl with the SAS,” the book tells her story of being one of just a handful of women to have taken part in the notoriously brutal selection process for the elite military unit in the early 2000s.
Such is her proximity to the highest echelons of the Conservative Party that she even gave a warm-up speech for Defence Secretary Michael Fallon at the 2016 Conservative Party Conference.
