Khalid Mahmood Whistleblower Challenges Ex-Boss to Re-Selection Battle

In an ultimate act of rough justice, Khalid Mahmood’s former staffer (and ex-lover) Elaina Cohen, who already won an unfair dismissal claim against Mahmood earlier this year, has announced she’s standing for selection in Birmingham Perry Barr. Having first beaten Catfish Khalid in court, she’s now determined to finish the job… by beating him in his own constituency.

Back in May, Cohen accused Mahmood of dumping her after she refused to become his second wife, and subsequently firing her when she pointed out a female colleague had been sharing antisemitic messages on Facebook. The case went all the way to the London Central Employment Tribunal, where the court declared for Cohen. Now she’s announced her next move, writing on Facebook last night:

It appears that the only way to get justice for the victims of criminal abuse and for myself is to become an MP myself, so I will be standing in the Perry Barr selection. It’s early days yet and the selection timetable has not yet been announced but I have asked the party to notify me when the process opens and I already have the support of local politicians.”

When Cohen’s first made her accusations, Mahmood infamously claimed she was just “making life difficult” for him. Doesn’t look like it’s about to get any easier…

Khalid Mahmood Loses Court Case Against Ex-Lover

Elaina Cohen has won her unfair dismissal claim against her ex-lover and Labour MP Catfish Khalid Khalid Mahmood. The tribunal ruled this afternoon that Mahmood had mistreated Cohen during her tenure as his staffer, and that she had made “protected disclosures” to both Mahmood and Keir Starmer over her colleague’s exploitation of domestic violence victims under her care as a charity worker. Cohen told Skwawkbox:

“I’m relieved over the moon that the tribunal agreed I was unfairly dismissed by Khalid Mahmood MP and suffered detriment. My lawyers are looking at the judgment in detail, but there is no doubt now that the protected disclosures were genuine and that Keir Starmer, Khalid Mahmood and West Midlands Police turned their back on victims of crime and abuse.”

Full details of the judgement are expected soon, although according to Skwawkbox, Cohen “will be appealing the tribunal’s finding that she was not dismissed directly because of her whistleblowing.” Mahmood, for his part, previously claimed Cohen was just “making life difficult” for him. Stay tuned…

Labour MP Khalid Mahmood Accused of Racism and “Stalking” by Ex-Lover

Labour MP Khalid Mahmood has been accused by his former staffer and ex-lover of dumping her after she refused to become his second wife, and subsequently firing her after she pointed out a female colleague had been sharing antisemitic messages on Facebook. Elaina Cohen, who worked for Mahmood for 15 years, told a tribunal today that the Birmingham Perry Barr MP was a “racist bully” who “stalked” women online, and unfairly dismissed her after she unveiled evidence that her colleague – a former domestic abuse charity worker named Saraya Hussain – had “sexually exploited and blackmailed” vulnerable women in her care. For his part, Mahmood claims Cohen was just “making life difficult”…

According to Cohen, Mahmood only hired Hussain after “stalking” her on Facebook – apparently earning the nickname “Catfish Khalid“, even though there’s currently no evidence he used a fake profile to woo her. When Cohen brought evidence of Hussain’s alleged antisemitism to Mahmood, he “accused [her] of lying and being jealous”, before ultimately sacking her. The hearing at the London Central Employment Tribunal continues, although today Mahmood’s counsel quite fairly asked why Cohen chose to continue working for him after all the supposed drama. Apparently she hoped he’d “improve“. When your nickname is “Catfish Khalid”, the bar for improvement is probably pretty low…

British Council and Heritage Lottery Fund Supporting Known CAGE Campaigner

Jaw-dropping finding from Policy Exchange this afternoon as they’ve reveal the British Council and Heritage Lottery Fund are backing an event discussing the work of Asim Qureshi – CAGE’s research director. The logos of both organisations currently appear on promotional material for an event discussing Qureshi’s book “I refuse to condemn”, set to take place on 25th November. Qureshi is perhaps best known for describing Jihadi John as a “beautiful young man”…

The revelation come just two months after Policy Exchange revealed a taxpayer-funded theatre in Camden was set to host a 9/11 event with “apologists for terror”; and forms part of their research for their “Understanding Islamism Project”.

The platform is being given to Qureshi as part of Islamophobia Awareness Month, in collaboration with “Our Shared Cultural Heritage”, Decolonise University of Manchester, and Manchester University Press Radical Readers. “Our Shared Cultural Heritage” is a British Council project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund…

Once again a cross-party opposition of Khalid Mahmood and Nus Ghani have come out to condemn the event, with the former pointing out:

“The British Council exists to promote cultural understanding between peoples and a positive view of Muslims to showcase the best of Britain. Asim Qureshi and CAGE have consistently shown themselves to be some of the worst. What is an organisation with a royal charter doing in such company?” 

After their last exposé, Oliver Dowden launched an immediate investigation, Guido expects the new Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries will do the same again…

Cross-Party Fury as Taxpayer-Funded Venue Hosts 9/11 Event With “Apologists For Terror”

A Camden theatre that receives tens of thousands of taxpayer funding has been slammed for hosting a three-day event with a group that Boris previously described as “apologists for terror”. In April 2021 they were given a £33,671 grant by DCMS…

The Camden People’s Theatre has been accused of a “grotesque lapse of judgement”, compounded after it emerged they’re to soon host one CAGE speaker who previously questioned whether Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11, and another who called Jihadi John a “beautiful young man”. The same week that one Labour council no-platformed comedian Roy Chubby Brown, yet not a peep from Camden council about this…

The event has been highlighted as part of Policy Exchange’s Understanding Islamism project, which documents the activities of Islamists, both violent and non-violent, and their sympathisers Tory MP and Senior Fellow Nus Ghani said:

“It’s absurd that taxpayers’ money has been allocated to events or individuals who have stated that the Islamic State’s violent Jihadi John is a ‘beautiful young man”. 

Fellow senior fellow, and Labour MP, Khalid Mahmood also says it “worries me deeply that official Arts Council and UK Government funding could be going towards something that seems designed to offend the British and American public” Guido expects a swift DCMS review…

Shadow Cabinet Member Announces Frontbench Resignation Following Local Election Results

Khalid Mahmood, shadow minister for defence, has announced that he quit Starmer’s front bench ahead of the local election results:

It would be easy for Labour MPs and members to whinge about the unfairness of this summary of the past decade. But we must recognise that is how we are seen by so many people in the places that were once unfailingly loyal to us – as a party that has lost its way. It is only by engagement on a local level, meeting eye to eye with voters and hearing their concerns, that we will fix that. I will be doing so not from the Labour front bench, but walking the streets of my constituency as a backbencher and talking face to face with the people I have the honour to serve.
