Boris’ Labour Opponent Couldn’t Be Bothered Voting in the Last Election He Stood In

There has been much speculation over labour’s controversial candidate for Boris’ Uxbridge and South Ruislip seat. The 24-year-old former student politician has been caught out promoting multiple 9/11 conspiracy theories, and using the word “#jew” as an insult.

Now Guido can reveal that Milani is a more typical young voter than expected, having not voted in the last election. Despite standing in it himself…

Guido has seen Hillingdon Council’s Marked register, showing Mr. Milani as not having voted in the borough he was registered to vote in for May 2018’s local elections. He was standing for the local council in a different ward at the time, meaning there can be two explanations…

  1. Milani is only in it for himself and can’t be bothered voting for other Labour candidates. Not even organised enough to sort out a proxy or postal ballot…
  2. He voted from a different address – therefore breaking law by being registered in the same Borough at multiple addresses.
  3. If he claims he did actually vote, Milani clearly deems electoral staff and the returning officer as incompetent…

Which one is it, Mr. Milani..?

Labour’s Ali Milani Likes Another 9/11 Conspiracy

Labour’s Ali Milani – who is standing against Boris Johnson in his Uxbridge constituency – has a vast chequered history of unsavoury comments and conspiracies. Today Guido can reveal that despite having deleted his 9/11 conspiracy tweets, Milani still likes a conspiracy page about the brutal terrorist attack on his personal Facebook page:

“When the american government came up with 9-11 to stop Islam spreading only for it to double since 2001”

Milani remains Labour’s candidate… 

Labour’s Ali Milani Condoned ‘Armed Struggle’ Against Israel on Press TV

The dubious history of Labour’s candidate to take on Boris in Uxbridge has been further exposed, with new footage uncovered showing Ali Milani refusing to rule out “armed struggle” against Israel while also pushing the classic trope of a well-funded Israel lobby. No wonder he fits right in with Corbyn’s Labour…

When asked on Corbyn’s favourite Iranian state propaganda outlet, Press TV – natch – whether the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israel) is “an alternative to armed struggle or something alongside it?” Milani responded with an answer condoning both:

“There is no reason why we need to frame the argument as binary, it doesn’t have to be either a non-violent economic resistance or an armed resistance…”

In the same interview, alongside another notorious spreader of 9/11 and other conspiracy theories, he claimed that his distasteful views were not easy to argue against “the lobbyists [who] come out very quickly; the other side is much better funded than we are”. Unfortunately for Milani he couldn’t delete this footage in the same way he did his highly questionable tweets…

H/t The Golem

Milani: Nothing to Hide, Nothing to Fear

We have been covering the emergence of, Ali Milani, Labour’s candidate in Uxbridge since December 2017, long before he was surprisingly accepted as a candidate. We have documented his extreme anti-Israel views and his crazy conspiracy theories about the US government being in on the “false flag” 9/11 attack. A lot of the evidence – not all – that we have gathered has been from his social media accounts. Last night he deleted his personal Facebook page and all his tweets prior to July 2017. Too late…

Labour’s Anti-Boris Candidate Ali Milani Was 9/11 ‘Truther’

Labour’s Uxbridge candidate Ali Milani doesn’t just have a history of anti-Semitic remarks on his social media accounts. Despite having deleted tweets calling for the destruction of Israel, using Zionist as an insult, and using the hashtag “#jew” to mock someone being tight with money, Milani has left a host of other extraordinary tweets up on his account. As a student he wrote numerous tweets alleging 9/11 was an inside job involving the US Government…

In three separate posts, the Labour candidate alleged that the September 11th terrorist attacks in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania were “false flag” operations, suggesting that Al Qaeda were not responsible for the event, and that culpability lay with U.S. Government instead. Placing him in the company of 9/11 conspiracy promoters David Icke, the Iranian regime, and Hezbollah

Milani developed his argument by explaining that evil people can get into government. “Just ask the Germans!”

He said “it is and will forever be” his position that the US Government knew of the attack in advance:

Milani, who supports votes at 16, wrote the tweets as an adult. As of today he still hadn’t deleted them. He currently remains as Labour’s candidate…

UPDATE: Milani has now finally deleted these tweets as well. Presumably he’ll just go on another ‘educational visit’ to New York City this time while Labour MPs continue to come to his defence

Meet Labour’s Ali Milani

Labour have selected a 24-year-old foul-mouthed former student politician to take on Boris Johnson in his Uxbridge constituency. Ali Milani, who was profiled by last week, has just finished serving as a Vice President of the NUS, after working as president of Brunel Student Union. Not exactly doing much studying…

His extensive time in student politics was not without controversy. Milani, a close ally of former NUS President Malia Bouattia, has a history steeped in anti-Semitism. His comments have included:

“Nah u won’t mate. It’ll cost you a pound #jew.”

“I want to be the President of Israel. They have a self desruct button right ?”

“your Israel is a land built on ethnic cleansing and colonialism. Oppression is something your people should know about”

“Israel has no right to exist”

“@piersmorgan u are a zionist and corperate [sic] jackass”

Milani now claims to be a reformed character, he says that “it’s not enough to apologise, I need to take positive steps” and makes a big point out of having visited Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Funny how those “positive steps” still seem to include working with organisations like “Friends of Al Aqsa”, a group which supports Hamas and advocates the total elimination of Israel. That is when they’re not busy organising trips for Corbyn himself to meet Hamas. Seems like a nice guy…

Burgon Airbrushes Labour Candidate’s ‘Disgraceful’ Past

All too predictably, Labour have managed to select someone to fight Boris Johnson in Uxbridge who’s already been involved in an anti-Semitism scandal before he even became a candidate. The past output of Ali Milani includes:

“Nah u won’t mate. It’ll cost you a pound #jew.”

“Israel has no right to exist”

“@piersmorgan u are a zionist and corperate [sic] jackass”

Richard Burgon was challenged over why he was campaigning for a candidate who had said that, Burgon said the tweets were “disgraceful” but Milani shouldn’t be barred because of tweets he sent “when he was a teenager” and it was all ok now because he had been a “programme of learning” since then. Burgon didn’t reveal whether he’d been on an education course himself after his own Zionist rant

Funnily enough that doesn’t seem to have stopped Milani from working with organisations like “Friends of Al Aqsa”, a Leicester-based group which supports Hamas and advocates the elimination of Israel. At least he’s in good company, Friends of Al Aqsa also donated to Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership campaign and paid for his trip to meet Hamas in 2010. Par for the course in Corbyn’s Labour Party…

Corbyn Launches Labour Muslim Group Headed By “Israel Has No Right to Exist” Activist

A Labour activist who tweeted “Israel has no right to exist” and suggested Jewish people are stingy is spearheading a new group for Muslims in Labour which Jeremy Corbyn helped launch last night.

John McDonnell, Dawn Butler, Andy Slaughter, Rupa Huq, Wes Streeting and Afzal Khan were also present at the launch of the Labour Muslim Network, hosted in parliament by Ali Milani, an NUS Vice President who was criticised for past anti-semitic comments. In 2012, Milani posted a tweet suggesting Jewish people are stingy: “Nah u won’t mate it will cost you a pound #jew”. He also sent messages stating:

“Israel has no right to exist.

“Israel is a land built on ethnic cleansing and colonialism. Oppression is something your people should know about.

“So lecturer asks the class today ‘nobody in this room would ever want to go to war right?’ My hand rises. ‘Who?’ Me: ‘Israel’.”

He also responded to a tweet by Piers Morgan by calling him “a Zionist”. Josh Nagli, campaigns director of the Union of Jewish Students, said in April:

“It is very worrying that someone seeking to be an NUS Vice President has previously expressed views that many Jewish students will find deeply antisemitic.”

Is there anything you can say about Israel that will make you unwelcome in Corbyn’s Labour Party?

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
