Corbynista Bank Smasher Dropped From Question Time

bastani2

Last week Corbynista mouthpiece Aaron Bastani boasted to his Facebook friends that he had been pencilled in to appear on tomorrow’s Question Time. Well, the producers have changed their minds and booked Caroline Lucas instead. Shame, Dimbers could have asked Aaron about his conviction for his role in smashing up a bank, as revealed by Guido on Monday

Brooks Newmark Gets Carter Ruck to Delete His Sext Pics from Internet

brooks

Brooks Newmark has instructed Carter-Ruck to remove all his sext pictures from the internet. Letters have gone out from the solicitors to newspapers, who have complied with his demand because they are his copyrighted images. He used to like sharing his photos…

Now if you search the stories about him you will see that the original pictures he sent have indeed been removed. Obviously since he sent photos voluntarily to our “Sophie” this will be amusing to argue about in Court. A senior government Special Adviser has been known to share with colleagues some of the funnier – so far unpublished – pics of Brooks in his pyjamas. “‘Ere, do you want to see some dirty pictures?”

Corbyn’s Ex-Wife: I Voted For Owen Smith

Corbyn’s ex-wife Jane Chapman tells BBC 5Live she voted for Owen Smith. She says he’s younger and more flexible. Are they going to interview one of Owen’s many ex-girlfriends for balance?

Jez Looking For Jews to Appear in Labour Video

jewsforjez

Are you a Jew who loves Jez? Then the Corbynistas want you! Corbyn-supporting Labour NEC member Rhea Wolfson has asked members of the Young Jewish Left Facebook group if they’re “willing to be filmed talking positively about the Labour Party” for a new PPB. Appropriately, Rhea says “you don’t have to be a member”.

A “Jews For Jez” video. Perhaps not the subtlest message…

Mandelson’s Aide Funding Owen Smith Support Group

wegg-prosser-owen-smith-2

Benji Wegg-Prosser, Peter Mandelson’s aide who is now his managing partner at Global Counsel, the advisory and lobbying operation set up to cash in on the corporate contacts of the Prince of Darkness, is one of the funders of Owen Smith’s leadership bid. Electoral Commission data released yesterday shows he lent £10,000 to Labour Tomorrow Ltd, which in turn gave the money to Saving Labour“, the anti-Corbyn organisation trying to sign-up moderates to the Labour Party to oust Jezza.

The idea that Owen Smith is a left-winger when he is privately backed by Mandelson and allies is just incomprehensible. Guido suspects Benji is wasting his money…

Local Witney Selection Upsets Tory Hopefuls

witney

Things are moving quickly in Witney. Guido hears a Tory Parliamentary Assessment Board meeting to vet candidates was rushed through over the weekend and a decision could be made as soon as Thursday night. The word is it will be a local candidate and that the party has not opened selection to the main candidates list, excluding the likes of Dan Hannan and Esther McVey. There are a lot of upset Tories who wanted to put their names forward and now believe they’ve been blocked from running. Will they direct their anger at David Cameron, who is highly influential in the Witney selection, CCHQ’s head of candidates Gareth Fox, or Theresa May? Baroness Jenkin will also be unhappy after she just yesterday called for the new MP to be a woman. A shortlist of local candidates is likely to be very male and pale…

McDonnell: “Give Them a Good Slapping”

New footage has emerged of John McDonnell telling another one of his famous jokes. At a rally in 2010 the now Shadow Chancellor revealed his violent thoughts towards the Coalition government:

“I sat opposite that today and I tell you, sometimes you feel like physical force. You feel like giving them a good slapping.”

Obviously just another gag from the famous funnyman, like his other side-splitters about killing Thatcher, lynching female Tory MPs and kneecapping Labour councillors who opposed the IRA. Someone get him a stand up gig!

Blair Only Working For Dictators 20% of the Time

tb

Tony Blair is shutting down Tony Blair Associates, the company through which he receives payments from dictators around the world. He’s also winding up the totally not tax efficient Firerush and Windrush structures and says he will focus on not-for-profit work. Has he found God again?

Read the small print:

“I will retain a small number of personal consultancies for my income, but 80% of my time will be pro bono on the Not For Profit side.”

 Small number, not small profit…

Ex-SpAd Spins for Murky Lagoon

tomos

Tomos Davies, a SpAd who advised the government on green energy, is in hot water after getting a job with the Cardiff lobbying firm Deryn less than a year after he left his government job. Spin merchants Deryn, a firm which has a hand in far too many Welsh government lobbying scandals, employed the former Special Adviser from the Wales Office.

Until recently Tomos Davies was advising UK Government Ministers on policy issues, including the proposal to a build tidal lagoon off the coast at Swansea. Plaid Cymru Assembly Member Neil McEvoy has complained to the Cabinet secretary, Jeremy Heywood, that he is in breach of the rules governing SpAd employment. Davies, he complains, jumped straight into lobbying work and failed to get Civil Service clearance to work for the firm.

McEvoy cites Davies’ ConservativeHome article praising tidal power as evidence of lobbying on behalf of one of Deryn’s clients in breach of the rules, especially as one of Deryn’s clients is trying to build a tidal lagoon off Swansea. In it Tomos claimed, without irony, that “the unit cost of power from the project can, at a manageably small scale, match that of Hinkley”. Hinkley’s energy costs are among the most expensive in the world. Guido thinks Tomos Davies might be left high and dry…

“Jew” Rant at LibDem Conference

“I want to make a bold pitch to progressive voters in the Jewish community and say, we are for you,” Tim Farron told the Jewish Chronicle as conference began in Brighton this week. How serious is he? Taking pride of place in the middle of the conference exhibition centre is disgraced former MP David “The Jews” Ward, manning the LibDem Friends of Palestine stall. This is what they’ve been posting on Facebook during conference:

jews

Then there’s this charming post:

jews2

Why don’t they just join the Labour Party?

UPDATE: Luke Akehurst, director of We Believe in Israel:

“It is shocking that former MP David Ward, who made grotesquely offensive and prima facie antisemitic comparisons between Israel’s actions and the Holocaust, has been staffing the Lib Dem Friends of Palestine stall at the Lib Dem conference. The insinuations in recent Lib Dem Friends of Palestine Facebook posts that “Jews” (note the generalised smear against all Jews, let alone all Israelis) are never kind to Palestinian children, and that Jews play upon victimhood are unacceptable. Lib Dem Friends of Palestine should be trying to advance peace and coexistence between Israeli Jews and Palestinians, not using stereotyping and tropes about Jewish people in this crude way.”

UPDATE II: A LibDem spokesman says:

“We take this issue very seriously and are investigating.”

Campaign Takes Credit Where None Due

reagan-smoking

The popularity of e-cigarettes is seeing a seismic shift away from burning tobacco – smoking is down to 16.9% or 1 in 6 adults. Deborah Arnott, the fanatical £160,000-a-year chief executive of the taxpayer-funded pressure group Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), still has to continue justifying her taxpayer subsidy. Arnott credits the continuing decline in smoking prevalence to among other things “getting rid of glitzy tobacco packaging”.  Just a small point of order, this hasn’t happened yet, cigarette packaging is still branded…

Attendance Drop at Labour Conference

conference

Labour MPs are shunning their party’s conference in Liverpool this weekend after deciding there is not much point in being there. Guido has spoken to some Labour MPs who aren’t even bothering to make the trip at all, and several more who only plan to show their face for a day. It is a four day event – five if you include Jezza’s victory celebrations – and unsurprisingly they don’t want to spend that long with a bunch of nutters who want to deselect them. Fringe event organisers have been ringing round MPs’ offices asking for speakers, but are being told MPs are not available. Can you blame them?

Undercover Footage of Momentum Plotting to Deselect Labour MPs

Momentum’s denials that they want to deselect moderate MPs are even less believable after this footage from Dispatches. “We will unseat him… you’re in the way. Get out the way…”

Smith: I Wanted to See Corbyn Carry on For Longer

smith

A regretful Owen Smith has stopped short of conceding but tells the Guardian he never wanted to challenge Corbyn. In fairness, he never really did.

Guardian: Was nine months really enough time before MPs tried to oust a politician elected by the party’s membership?
