Right-wing ‘bully’ who claimed he was sacked from his job at Gatwick airport because of Al Jazeera’s allegations had been reported to be working for Tooting MP
Reports have been circulating that Luke Stanger – the pro-Israel right-winger alleged to have of bullied, stalked and conducted other sinister behaviour toward left-wing activists – and revealed by a recent Al Jazeera documentary series to have been aided and protected by various prominent figures on the Labour right – is working for Tooting Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan.
Stanger had claimed to have been dismissed from a job at Gatwick airport as a result of the four-part ‘Labour Files’ documentary and a screenshot of his Linkedin appeared to show him working for the former deputy leadership candidate:
But Allin-Khan’s office has emphatically denied the claims. A spokesperson told Skwawkbox that Stanger ‘absolutely’ does not work for the MP and had not been anywhere near ‘for years’, adding a formal statement:
Luke Stanger does not work for Rosena. He was involved in Labour’s election campaign in 2017 but never directly worked for her. The LinkedIn screenshot being referred to is from the 2017 General Election.
According to ‘The Labour Files’, Stanger was actually expelled by Labour for his conduct. However, the expulsion was never carried out and under Keir Starmer and his right-wing allies on Labour’s national executive the lengthy ‘charge sheet’ against him simply vanished. Right-wing NEC members then both welcomed his return to the party and wrote his defence while he was suspended.
Luke Stanger has been frequently invited to comment but has now blocked Skwawkbox from contacting him.
