Labour PPB Star Compared Israel to Nazis

The star of Labour’s latest Party Political Broadcast said there are “similarities between Israel and Nazis”, Guido can reveal. Jawad Khan was the poster boy for Labour’s newest PPB and is pictured with Jeremy Corbyn on his Facebook page above. Khan, who was also a Labour Party candidate in the local elections in May, tweeted during the Israel-Gaza conflict:

“Anyone else see the similarities between Israel and Nazis?”

The Chakrabarti report found that “Labour members should resist the use of Nazi metaphors and comparisons in debates about Israel-Palestine”. Something to ask Corbyn when he gives evidence to the Home Affairs anti-Semitism select committee at 4pm…

UPDATE: Khan gets in touch:

“I was 16 years old at the time and it was before I was involved in politics. The comment I tweeted was completely unacceptable and I later deleted it. I apologise unreservedly for making such an offensive comment.”

Quote of the Day

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Theresa May

“There comes a point at which the policy and the individual become so intimately connected that it would be very hard to carry on supporting the person who is promoting this policy.”
