Labour Sources Say Bastani Out of the Labour Party

Labour sources tell Guido that the founder of Novara Media and well known advocate of communism, Aaron Bastani, is no longer a member of the Labour Party. Bastani himself tells Guido cryptically:

“I don’t comment on personal affiliations. Membership data remaining private is a legal matter and party staff show a level of unprofessionalism that should be unbecoming of them by engaging in such trivial tittle-tattle”.

Typical of the attention-seeking Bastani to avoid giving a straight yes or no answer. No official confirmation from the Labour Party either…

UPDATE: Responding to speculation that he had been kicked out of the Labour Party, Bastani has just tweeted the email he sent cancelling his membership:

I’m just sending a message to let you know I’ve cancelled my membership, and have contacted the party as well as cancelled my direct debit.

This has nothing to do with policy or politics, and I look forward to helping Stephen and council candidates win in future elections, but for now I don’t want party allegiance to be a limiting factor in terms of my reporting, so it is a professional choice.
I wish you, and the party’s members and candidates all the best come May and thereafter.

Best, A

You are either in front of Guido, or you’re behind…

Corbyn Schools His Outriders on How to Avoid the Media

Corbyn’s outriders have been coming up with boringly predictable excuses for dodging their media appearances this morning, from Owen Jones ducking a Today Programme grilling after he “discovered my phone’s alarm no longer works” to Aaron Bastani who “missed his train” on the way to Politics Live. Luckily the unflappable Dawn Foster was on hand to step in for both of them…

Now the Absolute Boy himself has shown them all how it’s done with this impressively original ruse to avoid the press pack outside his house this morning, sending a woman out ahead of him loudly speaking in Spanish and waving her arms around until he’s safely in his car. ¡Muy bien!

UPDATE: ITV have now translated the video. She seems to think it’s all a media witch hunt too…

On Bastani Being Bastani

Guido has an editorial policy of trying to ignore the ever attention-seeking Aaron Bastani. Currently he has however managed to attract widespread tabloid attention by soiling himself on the subject of the Poppy Appeal; arguing “Close down the British Legion”, “It’s racist, it’s white supremacist”, “F**k off the Invictus Games” and apparently “Mocking people who live on housing estates”. He’s entitled to hold his stupid views in a free society.

He’s on the BBC’s Any Questions tonight. Note there are no calls from conservative leaning politicians or media for him to be no-platformed. That is a left-wing tactic of closed minds. Suspect the infantile leftist will enjoy the all attention, the Devon crowd’s questions however will be less than enjoyable for him…

“Are You Romanticising a Murderous Ideology?”

Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics got to the point. Bastani defended freedom crushing totalitarianism…

Riot Convicted Bastani: Remain Protest Was “Public Nuisance”

Aaron Bastani accused the remain-backing Our Future Our Voice protest (who had the temerity to hold up a banner at the back of the crowd during Corbyn’s Labour Live speech) of “causing a public nuisance”. Vanilla protesting doesn’t impress the hardcore Dr Bastano
