60 hours until the polls open…
A Labour Party Spokesperson said: “Salim Mulla has been suspended pending an investigation.”
At least Labour are dealing with these swiftly now…
Guido has just got off the phone with Salim Mulla, the former mayor of Blackburn who currently sits as a Labour councillor there. Last year Cllr Mulla posted on his Facebook page that it is “bloody obvious” who is behind ISIS: “Those who are not sure. ISRAEL.”
Cllr Mulla also posted the same graphic that got Naz Shah suspended, writing that the forced transportation of Jews out of the Middle East was a “very easy solution”.
He also posted a conspiracy theory video claiming Israel was responsible for the Sandy Hook shooting, adding “he is talking facts”.
And Cllr Mulla says “Zionist Jews are a disgrace to humanity”.
When Guido asked Cllr Mulla to explain the posts, he said:
“It was probably just forwarded to me. I don’t agree with Zionism at all. I have very, very many Jewish friends.”
Three days ’til the polls open…
