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

Moderate Labour Lewisham East Chair Suspended After Corbynista Campaign

Labour say the Blairite chairman of Lewisham East CLP has been suspended pending an investigation into his tweets about Emily Thornberry. UPDATE 0824: A Labour spokesman gets in touch to clarify that he hasn’t been suspended yet. UPDATE 0940: He has indeed now been suspended. Chaos at Labour HQ…

Ian McKenzie is loathed by the left because he limited the power of Momentum and Corbynistas within Lewisham party – this paid off when moderate Janet Daby defeated both left-backed candidates in the parliamentary selection. Since the result became clear McKenzie has been targeted on social media by prominent Corbyn outriders including Aaron Bastani and Owen Jones. Corbynistas widely shared tweets where McKenzie wrote: “Emily Thornberry is too old for Isis. They won’t make a sex slave of her. They’ll behead her and dump her in a mass grave.” McKenzie also wrote: “Maybe she’d agree sex slavery to one man only, provided he didn’t sell her on or insist on gang rape.” 

A Labour spokesperson said: “The Labour Party takes all complaints of abuse and discrimination extremely seriously. Any complaints are fully investigated and any appropriate disciplinary action taken in line with our rules and procedures”No delay when it comes to cracking down on moderates…

Bastani Not Going to IPPR

Last week Red Roar reported that Corbynista firebrand Aaron Bastani had been offered a job at the IPPR think tank. The potential move caused consternation and horror in moderate Labour circles, as well as much mockery of the once influential New Labour wonk shop on Twitter, and, Guido hears, protests from the IPPR boardroom. Guido can now reveal that any plans the IPPR had to hire Bastani have alas fallen through. In a phone call just now, Bastani declined multiple opportunities to deny that the IPPR had withdrawn their offer to him. IPPR sources say he now won’t be coming on board. Following the dissolution of his company, presumably this means jobless Aaron is free to spend more time making his videos

Kremlin’s Corbynista Useful Idiots

Chris Williamson’s Russia Today interview is being broadcast on the Russian state news agency TASS this evening, complete with Russian subtitles. He argues the UK government is using the Skripal attack to distract from Brexit, which is literally a Kremlin line to take. Meanwhile Corbyn Twitter outrider Aaron Bastani says it could have been done by Israel:

Is it a full moon?

Corbynista Wars: Bastani and Shanly Excommunicated

This is definitely not funny at all. The Labour General Secretary Corbynista infighting has claimed two more victims as lefties supporting Jon Lansman are excommunicated for daring to challenge the Leader’s Office choice Jennie Formby. Things are getting serious: Jeremy Corbyn has unfollowed Novara Media’s Aaron Bastani on Twitter. You can tell he’s really upset by it:

Meanwhile Lansman’s protege Max Shanly has been booted off the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy executive. The Campaign for Labour Party Democracy not exactly campaigning for Labour Party democracy by demanding no candidate stands against Formby…

The revolution devours its children…

Blue Peter Lexiteer Loves Jez and Brexit

Not sure how the BBC square Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya giving his view that Corbyn has shown “real leadership” and defending him calling Hezbollah “friends, with their strict impartiality guidelines that presenters aren’t allowed to give political opinions.

All is forgiven though, it turns out Radzi also wants to get on with leaving the single market and customs union. Is the Blue Peter man a millennial Lexiteer in the mould of Aaron Bastani?

Corbynista Space Cadets

Top Corbynista Aaron Bastani has caused much amusement with his suggestion following Elon Musk’s latest SpaceX launch that a “socialist space agency would bump Labour’s polling by 5 points”. This artist’s impression reveals what a Corbynista NASA could look like. Can think of a few Labour MPs who would be up for blasting Basto and co into space…

Brocialists Sorry for Kober “She’s Dead” Crack

A swift apology from the three musketeers of brocialism after their locker room banter on Labour moderate Claire Kober got out of hand, culminating in Max “Gammon” Shanly cheering “she’s dead“:

Heavyweight Aaron Bastani would only apologise “for any offence”:

Best keep the #EverydaySexism off air in future, lads.

“She’s Dead” – Moment Corbynistas Celebrated Claire Kober’s Downfall

This is the moment top Corbynistas Max Shanly, Aaron Bastani and Matt Zarb-Cousin found out Labour moderate Claire Kober had resigned as Haringey council leader. Shanly, Momentum protege of Jon Lansman, exclaims: “She’s dead!”, before being rebuked by the slightly more savvy ex-Corbyn spokesman Zarb-Cousin for his ill-advised choice of language. The three brocialists go on to mock the “Blasted sexism and bullying by supporters of Jeremy Corbyn”. Just locker room talk…

Novara Media Dissolved By Companies House

Novara Media Ltd, the company which controls pro-Corbyn website Novara Media, has been dissolved via compulsory strike-off by Companies House. Aaron Bastani’s company had failed to file its confirmation statement or act when issued with a notice for compulsory strike-off back in October. The Corbynista site’s assets will be passed to the Crown. Guido knows Aaron and co are in favour of nationalisation but this is taking it a bit far…

UPDATE: Novara Media Ltd was incorporated in August 2016, so its accounts would have been due imminently. Are they planning on paying any tax? All assets including their bank accounts should theoretically be frozen…

Labour Silent on Iran As Top Corbynistas Back Regime

Day six of the protests in Iran and still no comment from Jeremy Corbyn or Emily Thornberry. So far 450 protesters have been arrested and the death toll has exceeded 20. Boris has been defending the protesters’ right to demonstrate so why the silence from Labour? Surely nothing to do with Jezza publicly backing the country’s Khomeinist rulers on dozens of occasions, taking more than £20,000 of their cash for appearing on its fake news station Press TV, rubbing shoulders with Iranian propagandists even after he became leader, or attending the notorious Al-Quds day march backed by Iran. Read Corbyn’s record on Iran in full here.

Fortunately Jezza’s Twitter outriders can give us an idea of his thinking. Here’s Aaron Bastani from pro-Corbyn website Novara Media:


And the infamous Harry Leslie Smith account is blaming the West and arguing Iran doesn’t need to be a democracy:

Unlike Corbynistas not to enjoy a protest…

UPDATE: Thornberry finally issues a statement.

Bastani on Lewis

Corbynista media cheerleader Aaron Bastani says his friend Clive Lewis’s “b*tch” comment was:

Corbynistas Reach For Trump Playbook

WikiGuido discussed Labour’s latest anti-Semitism problems on the Daily Politics with Corbynista journalist Aaron Bastani, who reckoned it was all fake news from the “rigged” media. Bit Trumpian, Aaron…

Corbynista Bank Smasher Dropped From Question Time

bastani2

Last week Corbynista mouthpiece Aaron Bastani boasted to his Facebook friends that he had been pencilled in to appear on tomorrow’s Question Time. Well, the producers have changed their minds and booked Caroline Lucas instead. Shame, Dimbers could have asked Aaron about his conviction for his role in smashing up a bank, as revealed by Guido on Monday

Top Corbynista Convicted For Role in Bank Attack

bastani2

A top Corbynista can be revealed as a convicted criminal who was given a suspended sentence for his role in a violent bank attack. Aaron Bastani, who runs Jeremy Corbyn’s favoured ‘new media’ outlet Novara Media, has had a string of brushes with the law. During the anti-cuts protests in March 2011, Bastani was filmed ramming a bin into a branch of HSBC before beckoning rioters inside. The bank was then smashed up. Bastani has admitted to Guido that he is the man in the grey t-shirt wearing a bicycle snood, and confirmed he was convicted of a public order offence and received a suspended sentence.

Later that year, Bastani was arrested for his role in another protest, this time against the then Tory education minister David Willetts at SOAS university. The photos below show Bastani involved in a brawl inside the building, and him being arrested and handcuffed on the ground outside. Bastani was charged but the case was later dropped.

Bastani confessed to Guido:

“I do regret it because it brought an immense amount of pain and anxiety to my loved ones, my friends and my family. I wouldn’t do it again, I do regret it. Politically I’m still the same person in terms of how I want to change things, one of which does include tax avoidance and does include a bank, HSBC, which is involved in billions of pounds worth of business with arms dealers and drugs cartels. I believe just as passionately about those but I would refrain from doing that sort of thing and I would tell other young people to refrain from doing it because of the pressure and anxiety it brings to their loved ones.”

Bastani has been booked by Question Time as a Corbynista spokesman. Perhaps Dimbleby could ask him about this…

Top Corbynista’s Byline on Tory Newspaper Article Praising IDS

Aaron Bastani is getting a lot of airtime as the top Corbynista blogger from Novara, an eccentric far-left site which fangirls over Jezza. So who exactly is Corbyn’s greatest cheerleader? Guido can reveal that Bastani used to go by the name Aaron Peters. In 2009, an article appeared under his name in the UCL Conservative Society student newspaper, in which ‘Aaron Peters’ praised Iain Duncan Smith and Blairite James Purnell:

“While the two major parties may substantially disagree over a number of key issues Ian Duncan-Smith’s Centre for Social Justice’s recent report of Breakthrough Britain: Dynamic Benefits seems a continuation of the excellent ‘workfare’ policies of former Labour cabinet member James Purnell in his short time as head of the Department of Work and Pensions”

Bastani/Peters admits to Guido that he did agree to write an article for the Tory newspaper as a favour to a friend. However he insists the friend “modified” his words to add the bit about IDS and Purnell. He claims “I didn’t write” the words that appear under his byline. You can see why he’d want to distance himself – this would ruin his street cred with his Corbynista mates…

Labour MP Raises Money to Get Journalists Fired

Meet Aaron Bastani, a notorious Twitter troll who runs ‘Novara Media’, an eccentric pro-Corbyn website which claims to be “new media for a different politics“. Bastani attacked the journalists who were spat at during Tory conference, and has moved on to trolling a number of female journalists on Twitter, calling the Sindy’s Jane Merrick a “fatuous muppet”:

When he isn’t trolling female journalists, Bastani is raising money for a vacuous campaign to try and get Nick Robinson and Michael Crick sacked:

A campaign which Corbynite MP Clive Lewis is backing:

Does Lewis know he has given money to an internet crackpot? Or do Team Corbyn really think they should be pressuring news organisations to fire their staff?
