George Galloway disagrees with Corbynista Aaron Bastani on Brexit

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

George Galloway disagreed with a key supporter of Jeremy Corbyn on his talkRADIO show, centring on freedom of movement and the single market.

Speaking before Theresa May's speech on Brexit earlier today, Aaron Bastani, founder of Novara Media, suggested that Corbyn should backtrack on the single market and defend freedom of movement.

But George responded: "I've known him [Corbyn] longer than you. I sat beside Jeremy for decades in Parliament, opposing the EU in all its works including so-called freedom of movement."

George did agree with Bastani, however, on Tristram Hunt, who stepped down as MP for Stoke-on-Trent last week. Both men agreed that Hunt was a weak man and had done little to help the Labour party.

Bastani, a prominent media commentator on Labour, also talked about UKIP, saying new leader Paul Nuttall was not as strong as Nigel Farage.

He said that Nuttall's views on issues such as abortion and gay rights remind him of old-school American bible-basher, and he is "not as savvy and smart as his predecessor."
