Labour Figures Court Loony Ex-Respect Leader

Guido had hoped that Salma Yaqoob’s resignation last night meant we had seen the back of the now former Respect leader. Not so, if lefty types are to be believed. Loony left Labour tweeters have called on Yaqoob to join the party, while other prominent voices from the left have been praising Yaqoob to the hilt:

Guido is not quite sure why Labour would want someone like Yaqoob in their party. This is a woman who described the 7/7 bombings as a “reprisal”, and sees the Assange case as a “dubious” government conspiracy. A woman who folded her arms and refused to applaud a war hero who threw himself on a grenade to save his colleagues. A woman who fronts the anti-Israeli Stop the War Coalition. A woman who defended the Iranian state television channel after it was banned from British TV:

Guido is fully supporting Labour’s overtures…

    the mystic mould with the appearance of the face of Jesus says:

    Camerooon can’t understand why so many government enquiries would try to hide the truth

  3. 3

    Not sure Labour are looney left enough for her.
    They’re only half full of mad harridans and junior school Marxists..

    I think she’d find much more agreement for her batshit ideas in the Green party.

    Freddie Fraudster says:

    I thinks she will fit into Labour very very well> All we need now is a photo of her and Ed standing smiling together

    Ps has she commented yet on the murder of the Great Satan Ambassador to Libya?

    Osama Bob Piper of Sandwell says:

    She is most welcome into our glorious Labour Party.

    Jimmy says:

    Half the posters on here are more pro-Saddam than she is.

    If those are the best smears that you managed to find from a morning’s google than she can’t be too bad. I always thought she was far too sensible for Galloway’s mob.

  7. 7

    But he is right. Why keep hiding?
    Labour and tory all covering up until the plod concerned have all vanished.

    But why?

    Even baby face Burnham didn’t release the papers. And this was his bandwagon and his party had nothing to lose by publishing.

    From Labours perspective who better to reach out to all those Imported Mooslem votes!

  10. 10

    Show just how far to the left you lean Jimmy.
    She’s borderline insane.

    No use joining your mob. Much to conservative for her.

    Jimmy says:

    Lucas is right – her clarity and vision regarding the future of Britain as a pluralist entity within the EU and distancing ourselves from Christian neo-con nutjobs in the USA are exactly the views progressive Labour should be embracing.

  14. 14
    jgm2 says:

    Quite so. Unless there is some convention whereby opposition parties don’t break the 30 year limit even if there is damning evidence.

    Isn’t that what the likes of Gus O’Donnell are there to ensure. That, once (say) the T*ries get into power they can’t immediately raid the last lots Cabinet papers and immediately reveal ‘Look, look, the fuckers knew their policies would fuck the economy. They were positively laughing about the shit they were storing up for us to deal with…’

    “Stop the War Coalition plagued by accusations of anti-Semitism”
    plagued? by accusations from who? ah i see.

    Assange? Dubious? I suppose it makes me of the loony left if I think governments bend rules and can’t be trusted to tell the truth.

    nellnewman says:

    Well first labour desperately pursue bumblingvince and now they’re pursuing this poor woman who has had the sense to get out of the respect party.

    Are labour so short of folks that they need to scoop up all the disaffected from other parties? If so perhaps they’d also like to make overtures to nadine.

    Well obviously on the question of overthrowing fascist dictators I would be to the left of her (and most people on here of course) but we are nothing if not a broad church.

    The extreme left – there’ll always be plenty of mentals for them to brainwash.

  38. 38
    jgm2 says:

    Labour need to find some mechanism to stop ‘Respect’ nicking their ‘safe’ seats. They’re getting desperate.

  39. 39
    Dellers for PM says:

    Really? The only Respect MP who ever wins is Galloway, and that’s until his constituents get sick of him being on TV more than he’s in the House. Wait, why am I giving them good advice? No, you’re right Labour, move to the far left. Introduce a 75% tax rate and promise to make Britain a beacon for Islam.

    I am tired, on antidepressants, so can’t work or workout out who the fuck Owen Jones is? Does he drive a steam engine?

    Wasn’t it a Tory called Churchill who kicked out a National Socialist Fascist dictator and another Tory one who kicked out the Fascist Gaddafi?

    i suppose there’s always a phone in show on Five Dead she could pimp for .

    Trooth Hurts,you have hit the nail on the head. I am surprised that Guido claims to be unsure about the reason why LieBour want her in their party;it’s so blo*dy obvious why when you see who are the three tweeters he cites.

    A “pluralist entity” as long as no-one disagrees with lefties. So not really pluralist at all. More your single party state. Which is unsurprising.

    Salma Yaqoob – Have Fox, CNN or France 24 ever broadcast an interview with someone that was interviewed under duress ? I’m thinking Maziar Bahari !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also Fox, CNN and France 24 are not run by a government that is a serial abuser of human rights.

    Yup Islam, forward to the 7th Century.

  73. 73

    The pose of principled opposition to the policies of a foreign government used by groups such as Stop The War Coalition is just that a pose. Scratch the surface, and you find historical Islamic religious based anti semitism and a screaming hatred of societies where a person has choices, such as American society.

    I once saw during the Iraq war demos (approx 2004 I think) a non Muslim female, Socialist Workers Party Organiser calling for people to shout Allah huAkhbah outside Ilford Police station in East London.

    The Left / Islamic alliance is dangerous and should be seen for what it is by more people.

    But not the ones saved by Royal Marine Matt Croucher GC, the bloke who laid on a hand grenade to save his mates, and after it exploded was still able to rejoin the firefight and kill a Taliban.

    Not bad for a reservist.

    Incidentally the kit that he was carrying during the incident, including his bergan which took the force of most of the explosion, is on display on the top floor of the Imperial War Museum.

    As for this bitch, she wasn’t fit or worthy enough walk in his shadow, let alone to shake his hand.

    An old classmate (I wouldn’t call him a friend as he was a bit of a shit at school, but honest enough) was at the match, and told me and others later that The Sun had got it EXACTLY right, especially the urinating on the dead and stealing the wallets of the dead and dying.

    And if thousands of people hadn’t turned up without tickets would anyone have died?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
