Jez, John and Fidel at May Day March

London’s May day marches are famous for displaying large banners and images celebrating communist dictators, and this year is no exception. Kicking off the festivities this year will be Cuban ambassador Teresita Vincente, who is presenting a portrait of Fidel Castro to the Marx Memorial Library in Clerkenwell at 11:30am on Sunday. Corbyn and McDonnell will be addressing the public on Clerkenwell Green immediately after, allowing the crowds to hear from their very own bearded far left leader. Now there was a man who knew about a crisis…

Naz Shah Runs Charity With Anti-Semitic Labour Councillor

Race row Labour MP Naz Shah is the chair of Sharing Voices, a charity in Bradford run by Labour councillor Mohammad Shabbir. Shah and Cllr Shabbir are close friends, the pair have been photographed together regularly and have worked together for years. Shah has repeatedly promoted Cllr Shabbir’s website on her Twitter page and regularly shares his tweets.

Cllr Shabbir often uses the word “zio“, a racial epithet used by the KKK and Neo-Nazi groups:

He has also on several occasions equated the Israel-Palestine conflict to the Holocaust, another well-known anti-Semitic trope:

In a post on his website responding to a story about a woman being raped by a group of Pakistani men, Cllr Shabbir pointed to “orthodox Jews who are involved in the sex trafficking trade” and directed readers to text suggesting that demand for victims of sex trafficking “is particularly high among Haredim, the conservative Orthodox Jews, many of whom are regular clients of brothels”. Shah also tweeted a link to an article by Cllr Shabbir in which he compared Zionists to al-Qaeda…

Two questions for Labour ahead of PMQs:

  • Will they withdraw the whip from Naz Shah?
  • Will they suspend Cllr Shabbir?

24 hours on from the original revelations, Jeremy Corbyn has still refused to comment…

Labour MP: Israelis Should Face “Transportation” Out of Middle East

A Labour MP has argued Israel should be “relocated” to America and praised the “transportation costs” of deporting Israeli Jews out of the Middle East. Naz Shah, who defeated George Galloway in Bradford West, shared a highly inflammatory graphic arguing in favour of the chilling “transportation” policy two years ago, adding the words “problem solved”. As these stories go, it is at the more controversial end of the scale…

The post argued the “solution” to the Israel-Palestine conflict is to “relocate Israel into the United States”, claiming the “transportation costs” of deporting Israelis would be “less than 3 years of defense spending”. Shah agreed, arguing it would “save them some pocket money“. You don’t have to be a history expert to see how incendiary these comments are…

Last night Shah confirmed to Guido that she was responsible for the posts. She says she is sorry and will be making a full apology in a statement, which has yet to arrive. She insists the comments were made before she was an MP and says her views on Israel have moderated over the last two years. This will be a difficult one for Corbyn – Labour members have been suspended from the party for less…

Labour “Holocaust” Loony Denies He’s Been Suspended

This morning Jewish News reported that Labour had suspended party member John McAuliffe after he described the Holocaust as a “useful political tool of the Zionist government in Israel to establish a financial racket in the West”. The Corbyn era is attracting such charmers…

McAuliffe however tonight denied he has been suspended:

We’ve been here before. Labour told Guido they’d suspended Beinazir Lasharie over her ISIS-Israel conspiracy theories, yet Lasharie denied that was the case. Similarly, Labour insisted they had suspended anti-Semitic loon Bob Campbell, only for him also to deny he had been booted out. This is a recurring theme. Are Labour actually kicking these people out of their party, or are they just telling that to the press to make the stories go away?

Race Row Channel 4 News Reporter’s Non-Apology

The Channel 4 News reporter who sent racially-charged tweets and slurred injured British soldiers has tweeted a grudging non-apology following Guido’s stories:

An apology for “offence caused” is not an apology…

Note that Baig fails to apologise for his tweets on “House Muslims”, “uncle Toms” and “coconuts“. He also refuses to clarify if he recognises the Ahmadiyya community as Muslim. Channel 4 have refused repeated requests to disclose how many complaints they have received about Baig’s conduct, and what their investigations into his behaviour found. They also won’t tell us if they are happy with his non-apology, which only made things worse for Baig. Guido’s inbox has been inundated with complaint after complaint sent to Channel 4 about their extreme reporter…

Channel 4 News Were Repeatedly Warned About Extreme Reporter

It has emerged that Channel 4 News were repeatedly warned about the conduct of their reporter Assed Baig well before Guido revealed his racially charged tweets and slur on injured British soldiers. Guido has seen a complaint sent to Channel 4 News about Baig back in November 2014. The complainant, himself a Muslim, claimed that Baig displayed “worrying tendencies” and warned “there is a clear line of racism in many of his comments”. They suggested Channel 4 take “a quick look on Twitter at Mr Baig‘s feed”. Channel 4 responded that “Your concerns have been passed on to the editorial team” but seemingly no action was taken.

Guido also understands that another complaint was made several weeks ago about a report Baig fronted on the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. Baig is said to have described Ahmadis as “people who describe themselves as Muslim”, a controversial statement given the persecution they face at the hands of other Muslims. Channel 4 News have refused to give Guido an answer on whether they are investigating complaints about Baig. They will only tell Guido that Baig’s other views were expressed before his employment. Yet this is something he said on air on Channel 4, and bosses have done nothing…

Channel 4 News Reporter’s Racially-Charged Tweets

In October Guido reported that Channel 4 News was employing a former CAGE extremist who had supported an Islamic theologian infamous for defending Hitler. Today we can reveal they are employing another reporter who sent a string of vulgar racially-charged epithets. Investigative journalist Assed Baig attacked moderate Muslims with racial terms including “uncle Tom” and “house Muslim”, even claiming that British Muslims who attend Islamic events hosted by the government are “Uncle Toms”, a derogatory phrase meaning a black person who is obedient to whites:


Baig suggested moderate Muslims “dance” for their “master” because they are “house Muslims“, another racial slur:

In response to a story about a Muslim Tory candidate calling for Muslims to join the British Army, Baig shockingly wrote:

Baig also claimed that the terms “choc-ice” and “coconut”, racial slurs which speak for themselves, are “not racist terms”:

At the time of going to pixel Baig had not responded to a request for comment. For Channel 4 News to employ one reporter with extreme views could be considered misfortune, to employ two…

UPDATE: Channel 4 News statement:

‘We are aware of the tweets in question by Assad Baig which pre-date his employment by Channel 4 News. They are clearly a personal view relating to that particular period in time. However, he has been reminded of his responsibilities as a journalist to be fair and impartial when representing Channel 4 News at all times.’

UPDATE II: Anti-Islamphobia campaign Tell Mama condemns use of House Muslim phrase.

Corbyn’s Brother Promoted ‘Israel Did 9/11’ Conspiracy

Piers Corbyn is seeking advice from his brother’s office after Guido revealed his ISIS-Israel conspiracy theories and attack on “Zionist” Labour MP Louise Ellman. Scrolling back through Jezza’s brother’s tweets, it just gets worse:

Why has Piers Corbyn been promoting articles about Israel orchestrating 9/11? The batsh*t article in question claims:

“Evidence Proves US, UK And Israel Orchestrated 9/11 Attacks: A retired officer specialising in Israeli counter intelligence has claimed that nuclear devices were used on 9/11 – and were a modified version of the W-54 artillery shells that were provided to the Israeli’s between 1988 and 1998 from US stockpiles. According to the Russian insider – chemical analysis done on the fallout at ground zero has identified the chemical/radiation footprint of the warheads used in the attacks as being of US/Israeli origin.”

Corbynistas are condemning Cameron over his father’s tax affairs today, what do they think about the Labour leader’s brother?

Labour Tell “Jews” Slur Activist He Can Rejoin in Two Years

Scott Nelson is a notorious former Labour activist who was banned from the party last year for a string of tweets about the “Jewish connections” and “Jewish blood” of Tesco and Marks & Spencer. You’d thought such comments would mean he has no chance of being welcomed back into the Labour Party.[…]


Milne Orders Corbynistas to “Isolate” Moderate MPs

Corbyn’s communications chief Seumas Milne has ordered the Labour leader’s army of social media ultras to “isolate” and “counter” moderate MPs online. According to the Labour Party Marxists group Milne attended the AGM of the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy last week, where he called on those present to target moderates:

he correctly pointed to the “symbiosis between some in the Labour Party and elements of the media and the establishment”.



Labour Suspends Another ISIS-Israel Conspiracy Theorist

Here we go again: Labour have suspended yet another member who thinks ISIS is an Israeli conspiracy. Bob Campbell, a Momentum activist and party member in Middlesbrough, reckons “ISIS is run by Israel” and says Belgium was attacked last week because it supported Palestinian rights:

In another post, Campbell promoted a meme claiming ISIS hasn’t attacked Israel “because the dog doesn’t bite its own tail”:

What is it about the Corbyn leadership that attracts Israeli conspiracy theorist loons into the party? […]


‘Jews Did 9/11’ Councillor: Labour Investigation Cleared Me

Beinazir Lasharie responds to our story this morning by confirming she is still a Labour councillor and claiming that the party’s investigation cleared her:

Labour HQ are spinning that Lasharie is “still suspended“, yet today she is on the Kensington council website as a Labour councillor and Kensington Labour say she was reinstated in December.[…]


Labour Reinstates Suspended Corbynista Who Said “Jews” Behind ISIS and 9/11

A Labour councillor who was suspended for writing that “Jews” were behind 9/11 and ISIS has been reinstated to the party. In October, Beinazir Lasharie, a Corbynista Labour councillor in Kensington, was suspended pending investigation after Guido exposed her extreme conspiracy theories.[…]


Corbyn Attacks Lord Levy Over Anti-Semitism Complaint

When a senior Jewish member of your party politely suggests Labour could do more to counter anti-Semitism, it’s an odd reaction to respond by attacking them. Yet Jeremy Corbyn has angrily laid into Lord Levy this morning:

“Lord Levy clearly hasn’t been listening to the seven times since I became leader I’ve absolutely condemned anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, any form of racism.



Through The Keyhole: Lansman’s £1.5 Million Pad

lansman flat exterior

Guido readers will remember that People’s Momentum chief Jon Lansman runs the grassroots Corbynista group from a million pound luxury riverside apartment at Shad Thames. But where did the Bennite previously reside? This is Lansman’s former four-storey property in Shoreditch, which sold for £1,525,000 in April last year.[…]


Gerry Downing Compares Labour Friends of Israel to Goebbels in Appeal to NEC

Expelled Labour mentalist Gerry Downing has written a 4,923 word appeal to Labour’s NEC asking them to reinstate him into the party, again. Some highlights include an attached photo of a book titled “The Jewish Question” and the claim that Labour Friends of Israel is “a prime example of a technique pioneered by the Nazis; Goebbels’ technique of the Big Lie”.[…]
