Nasreen Khan Resigns – Why Didn’t Labour Kick Her Out?

Nasreen Khan resigned from the Labour Party last night ahead of a meeting to probe her anti-Semitic social media posts. Bradford Labour sources tell Guido she tendered her resignation a few hours before the showdown, allowing the party to get away without kicking her off the shortlist or imposing any sanctions. Members are asking why she wasn’t kicked out…

One said:

“It’s a mess. Nasreen’s comments were common knowledge in Bradford from the beginning. She never should have been on the shortlist and it’s a disgrace she was allowed to resign rather than being kicked out.”

Khan, a former Respect member, is regarded as a top local Corbynista, having previously campaigned for Corbyn-backing Salma Yaqoob. No wonder she wasn’t suspended…

Hitler Row Labour Candidate: British Government Did 7/7 Bombings

Remarkably Labour still won’t comment on Guido’s story about their candidate Naz Khan defending Hitler and asking “what good have the Jews done?”. Even more extraordinarily they are keeping her as a candidate. Will they when they see this?

Above is a Facebook post which claimed the “government plotted 7/7 attacks to boost Iraq war support”, pushing conspiracy theories that “the four British Muslims involved were tricked by the authorities into taking part”. Naz Khan then commented below: “Thought provoking… an eye opener, not to believe everything in the news”. Not only is this person clearly anti-Semitic, she seems to believe it is possible the government carried out the 7/7 bombings. The sort of person Labour want as a candidate in Bradford…

Labour Candidate: ‘What Good Have the Jews Done?’

Labour has shortlisted as a potential candidate a woman who posted online: “what have the Jews done good in this world?”. Nasreen Khan, a former RESPECT activist now a Labour member, is on a two person shortlist to fight a council seat in Bradford next year. Khan has previously posted:

“It’s such a shame that the history teachers in our school never taught us this but they are the first to start brainwashing us and our children into thinking the bad guy was Hitler. What have the Jews done good in this world?”

Khan also said:

“The Jews have reaped the rewards of playing victims. Enough is enough!”

Last night Khan said her comments were “inappropriate and unacceptable”. A Labour spokesman said the party does not comment on selections. Unbelievable that Labour won’t comment on this…
