BBC’s Abdullah From Bristol Signs Birmingham Schools’ Anti-Gay Letter

Readers will likely remember Abdullah from Bristol from the Tory leadership debate, who asked a deliberately anti-Boris question and was later discovered by Guido to have posted Antisemitic content on his social media (unsurprisingly given he is an adamant supporter of Labour and Jeremy Corbyn).

Guido can now reveal that Abdullah is a leading signatory on a new letter from “Muslim Scholars & Imams” surrounding the bizarre debate over whether children should be taught that LGBT people exist. The letter insists schools should not teach that being gay is “normal” or “OK”Unfortunately for Abdullah, he was suspended as a teacher following Guido’s original exposé, so what school children are taught is no longer up to him…

“Aman from London” Suspended from Controversial Law Firm

After ‘Abdullah from Bristol’ was suspended from teaching duties at his school after Guido exposed his highly unpleasant social media output, ‘Aman from London’ has now suffered the same fate. Guido revealed that Aman Thakar was actually a Labour Party council candidate and previously worked at Labour HQ on anti-Semitism complaints – something which the BBC knowingly overlooked – as well as sending questionable tweets about Hitler. He’s now been suspended from his job at controversial ambulance-chasing law firm Leigh Day. Burley’s kiss of death strikes again… two people have lost their jobs over the debate last night, none of them work at the BBC…

“Aman from London” Worked for Labour HQ… Investigating Anti-Semitism

The BBC’s highly suspect guest selection for last night’s flagship debate has been under scrutiny after Guido uncovered Abdullah from Bristol’s tendencies for Zionist conspiracy theories and blaming women for being taken advantage of by men. Now Guido can reveal that the person who asked the final question wasn’t exactly an ordinary member of the public…

The panel were accused of having no democratic mandate by Aman Thakar. It turns out that not only was Thakar a Labour Party council candidate in 2018 in Southwark, he even worked in Labour HQ. As this letter sent in October 2018 from Labour’s Acting Head of Disputes to a party member under investigation for anti-Semitism reveals:

The General Secretary has appointed Aman Thakar, Legal Assistant, to arrange conduct of the Party’s own investigation.

A source who worked in Labour’s complaints department at the time says Thakar was “uber partisan” and claims he was brought in by Shami Chakrabarti to help “close down” cases of anti-Semitism. The BBC’s dubious excuse for letting Abdullah slip through the net is that his Twitter account was only reactivated after the programme. How did their background checks manage to miss the fact they’d got a Labour Party appointee on?

UPDATE: Turns out the BBC’s background checks didn’t miss the fact that yThakar had worked for Labour, according to Henry Zeffman they just didn’t think it was either a problem or worth informing viewers about. One partisan Corbynista is a mistake, two starts to look like….

UPDATE II: Aman has now deleted his tweets, unfortunately for him not before Guido got this. Aman describes himself as “a nationalist” in this tweet:

Tip for BBC researchers when doing vetting, search for the word “Hitler”….

UPDATE III: Aman apologises for Hitler joke tweet.

Abdullah is Primary School Teacher, Doesn’t Think Girls Should Be Alone With a Man

Guido revealed last night, the BBC’s ‘star guest’ Abdullah Patel from Bristol happens to be a big fan of Zionist conspiracy theories. It turns out that he’s also fond of giving advice to women:

Which is awkward because Abdullah is also a Deputy Head at Al-Ashraf Schools in Gloucester, which includes a primary school and an all-girls secondary school. Abdullah won’t be teaching many classes if he’s following his own advice…

Al-Ashraf Primary and Secondary schools were heavily criticised and labelled “inadequate” and “require improvement” by Ofsted inspectors last year. Hardly surprising given the unsavoury views of their Deputy Head…

The Ofsted report noted that “The leadership of safeguarding is inadequate. Systems to investigate, record and monitor concerns lack rigour.” Same could be said for BBC’s editorial team after last night…
