What Does Thornberry Really Think?
Favourites “Ashamed 2 b English in these dark times” Tweet

Well the ‘favoriting‘ spree that she just did on Twitter is rather illuminating:

You would think she would just stay away for the internet for a while.

How sorry is she really?

Didn’t take long for Dave to twist the knife:

Coming soon to leaflets near you…

Emily Thornberry Resigns

Thornberry’s statement:

“Earlier today I sent a tweet which has caused offence to some people. That was never my intention and I have apologised. However I will not let anything distract from Labour’s chance to win the coming general election. I have therefore tonight told Ed Miliband I will resign from the shadow cabinet.”

UPDATE: Full interview with White Van Man in the Sun tomorrow:

George Orwell knew a thing or two about left-wingers like Emily Thornberry:

“In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box.”

Labour’s prosecco progressives openly despise the suburban aspirational middle classes and are privately condescending towards the working classes and their traditional values…

This is Emily Thornberry’s £2 Million Islington Mansion

Guido understands this to be Emily Thornberry’s home in the heart of Islington:

Just one of the many properties she owns. “I’ve never seen anything like it…”

UPDATE: Thornberry apologises:

Thornberry: “I’ve Never Seen Anything Like it Before”

Somebody get Thornberry a spade:

“It was a house covered in British flags. I’ve never seen anything like it before. My point is that it’s a remarkable image of a house completely covered in flags. There’s three of them.”

Simon Danczuk tells MailOnline:

“Everyone will know exactly what she meant by that comment.

I think she was being derogatory and dismissive of the people. We all know what she was trying to imply.

I’ve talked about this previously. It’s like the Labour party has been hijacked by the north London liberal elite and it’s comments like that which reinforce that view.

I want to see more people flying the British flag.”

Eric Pickles weighs in:

“Whatever one’s class, colour or creed, the St George’s flag is a unifying symbol for our nation. Don’t knock it – let’s fly the English flag with pride.”

Nigel Farage adds:

Perhaps time for her to stop talking.

Islington MP’s Rochester Culture Shock

What a curious thing for Labour’s Emily Thornberry to tweet. Was it the white van, the England flag or the house that so offended Lady Nugee? How would she like it if someone posted a picture of one of her many, many houses online?

UPDATE: The internet reacts:

UPDATE: A Labour spokesperson says “what’s the problem?”

They just don’t get it.

RED ON RED:
Labour CLP Secretary Quits Over “Sociopath” Candidate

The secretary of Enfield Southgate Constituency Labour Party will sensationally resign tonight, claiming senior local Labour figures believe the party’s own candidate in Enfield North “exhibits all the hallmarks of a sociopath”. In an explosive letter to his chairman seen by Guido, Ben Maloney demands the party take action against come-back seeking, expense cheating, former MP Joan Ryan’s “attempts to undermine democracy in Enfield”, accusing her of being “a cancer at the heart of Enfield Labour Party”. As reported by Guido at the time, Maloney alleges Ryan and fellow Labour candidate Ibrahim Dogus tried to stitch up a selection by “pack[ing] Southgate CLP’s AGM with hordes of questionable “members”, many of which had been recruited by her and Dogus less than 24 hours”. On his way out the door Maloney tells Guido:

“Joan will stop at nothing to get her way politically, and this led to one concerned senior Labour Party figure recently telling me that “Joan exhibits all the hallmarks of a sociopath”. That’s unsurprising given she has a track record of meeting packing that would make Lutfur Rahman and his cronies in Tower Hamlets blush.”

When approached this afternoon, Ryan told Guido: “I have nothing to say”Perhaps Enfield Labour will at its AGM tonight…

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
