Boris Heckler is Labour Activist, Former Emily Thornberry Staffer

Guido can reveal the heckler who shouted at Boris in a hospital earlier today is in fact an Oxford educated Labour activist who describes himself as “campaigning against Brexit and for a socialist Europe.” His Twitter feed is full of Labour events and unsolicited advice for senior party figures, while his website boasts of attending a “left bloc” rally against Brexit.

UPDATE: It also transpires that Omar worked for Emily Thornberry for two and a half years after leaving Oxford as a senior researcher.

Quelle surprise…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
