Yvette to Declare War on Corbyn Tomorrow

Yvette Cooper is giving a speech in Manchester at 9:30am tomorrow, billed rather grandly as “The Future of the Labour Party”. The mysteriously vague op note promises a “big speech” and says “this is a great chance to hear what Yvette has to say”, though slightly oddly it gives no detail whatsoever. Her team are tight-lipped on the contents of the speech, but Guido understands Cooper will take on Jeremy Corbyn directly for the first time. Get your popcorn ready…

Corbynistas Already Planning Victory Rally

There might be a month until the ballot closes, but that hasn’t stopped some excitable Corbyn supporters from organising a mass “victory party” for their man on September 12:

Nearly 1,000 people have already signed up to attend the event, which sounds just great:

Will they be flying the red flag through the streets of London, or are they a tad premature?

Deadline Extended as Labour Website Crashes Under Pressure

Labour have extended the midday deadline to register to vote for their new leader until 3pm, after the sign up page on their website crashed under pressure this morning:

At the time of going to pixel an estimated 70,000 ‘supporters’ and 90,000 union members had registered to choose the next leader. This is what happens next:

Friday 14 August: Ballot mailing despatched

12 noon Thursday 10 September: Ballot closes

Saturday 12 September: Special conference to announce result

Sunday 27 September: Labour Party conference begins

31 days til we welcome our new Corbynista overlords? True Labour supporters can sign up here

Driverless Trains Would Gut the Feckless RMT

New DLR Rail Car 2

It’s less than a week since the last tube strike and underground workers have already announced two more 24 hour walkouts later this month. Tube drivers get paid £49,673 and up to 52 days holiday a year. They are striking because they don’t want the night-time tube plan to go ahead, despite being offered an above inflation pay rise, bonuses for all staff and, incredibly, a £200 per night bribe for drivers, who already work night shifts, to do a night shift.

There is of course a proven, reliable and safe solution to striking tube drivers. Driverless tubes…

There are at least 63 automated subway train systems in the world, including London’s very own Dockland’s Light Railway, which has been chugging across east London without a driver since 1987. In the only serious DLR incident that Guido can find, the train was being driven under manual control.

It’s not just the DLR: the Jubilee, Victoria and Central lines are all semi-automatic. They don’t even call their train drivers “drivers“, they are “train operators“. Their job? They literally have to press two buttons at the same time and the train drives itself. The £50,000 a year train operators also have to look after the doors…

BUTTONS TUBE

Hillary’s Chief Strategist Lined Up for Labour – So Long As Led By ABC

Multiple sources say top Obama pollster Joel Benenson, now working on the Hillary Clinton campaign, is lined up to work for the Labour Party – in particular on the London mayoral campaign. Benenson, who runs a consulting firm which advises Democrat politicians, was a senior adviser to the Obama campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and is now the chief strategist for Hillary’s presidential run. He also worked for Gordon Brown in 2009There is one obstacle…

The Hillary campaign guru won’t work for the Labour Party if Jeremy Corbyn is leader. Sources point to Corbyn’s extreme views on Israel-Palestine and Hamas as a major stumbling block to him coming on board. Benenson is described by GQ as the “go-to guy for any politico wanting to take the public’s temperature“. That he won’t work for Corbyn is a small indicator of Corbyn’s trans-Atlantic toxicity…

Labour’s Unpaid Internship Promise Not All It Seemas

“We’ll end the scandal of unpaid internships,” Labour vowed before the election, so it is lucky for their tight-fisted MPs that they didn’t win. Last month Guido revealed Angela Eagle’s unpaid internship hypocrisy. Now Seema Malhotra is looking for a […]

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
