Alan Johnson Kicks Off at “Middle-Class, Intellectual” Left Unity

Corbyn Skewered With His Own Words on Defence

The PM announced £178 billion of investment in new defence equipment before dropping one or two bombs on Corbyn. These are the Labour leader’s views on defence, reported by the Sun:

“Why do have to be able to have planes, transport aircraft, aircraft carriers and everything else to get anywhere in the world? Why?”

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every politician around the world, instead of taking pride in the size of their armed forces, did what the people of Costa Rica have done and abolished the army and took pride in the fact that they don’t have an army, and that their country is near the top of the global peace index. Surely that is the way we should be going forward.”

The frontbench looked to the heavens during Corbyn’s response:

Miliband Burned By Jim Naughtie

Ed Miliband was talking Corbyn on the Today programme this morning:

Miliband: “I’m not gonna be a back-seat driver.”

Naughtie: “Well having crashed the car it’s difficult to do that.”

Miliband: “Thanks.”

Ouch.

Diane Abbott Confronted With McDonnell Photo

How best to deal with the John McDonnell clusterf*ck? Send Diane Abbott onto the Daily Politics to defend him, of course! Diane began by insisting McDonnell never signed the ‘disband MI5′ letter and that the story “may well not be true”. Before being confronted with a photo of him holding it: “I’m sure he’ll be clarifying it very shortly…” 

UPDATE: McDonnell’s spokesperson has released a statement of apology:

“John posed in good faith to stand with a copy of what he thought were the principles he signed up to and not the demands which he had seen before yesterday. To reiterate John does not share these views. Only this week he has called for additional funding for the security services to support them in their vital work in defending our country.”

Well that clears that up then…

 

Ken Blamed Paris and Boston Attacks on the West, Defended Putin and Hamas

Anti-Trident Ken Livingstone has announced that he will co-chair Labour’s defence review. Corbyn clearly doesn’t trust his pro-Trident Shadow Defence Secretary Maria Eagle to do it herself. Guess on whom Jezza’s top new defence strategist blames the Paris attacks:

“All these terrorist attacks, the statements they make on their websites and so on are all about foreign policy… it’s the endless interventions of Britain and America and France in Arab countries that has come back to haunt us. After the fiasco of Afghanistan and Iraq, Britain and America and France are just not credible in this.”

Yes, merely 48 hours after the attacks, Ken really was piling into the French…

He has form: after the Boston Marathon bombings, which killed three and injured 200, Livingstone blamed America for “fuelling” the atrocity. He told Iranian state television channel Press TV:

“There was such ignorance in the Bush White House about Islam and the history of so many disputes that exist in the Middle East. People get angry — they lash out. It’s the whole squalid intervention that has disfigured the record of the western democracies and I think fuels the anger of the young men, who — as we saw in Boston — went out, and, out of anger and a demand for revenge, claimed lives in the west.”

Speaking to Kremlin-controlled Russia Today last year, Ken called for alliance with Russia and Iran and repeatedly defended Putin over Ukraine:

“Russia must be a key player in it, Iran should be a key player… [on Ukraine] You cannot blame Putin. This is an absolute tragedy, but it is not something planned and plotted by Putin. And that is the line being dished out from Washington and the British government… Let’s make it clear, Russia did not destabilize Ukraine… Now you have got a Russian president who puts Russia’s interests first.”

What about some of Ken’s other foreign policy views? In 2009 he told Israelis “don’t complain” when Hamas terrorists fire rockets at their civilians:

What is it with Corbyn’s new defence strategist and blaming the victim?

Corbyn: British Anti-Terror Police Should Not Shoot to Kill

Remarkable even by his standards, Corbyn has told Laura Kuenssberg that anti-terror police should not operate a shoot-to-kill policy on British streets in the event of a terror attack here:

So Corbyn would ask community police officers to attempt to handcuff Kalashnikov-wielding jihadis? […]

Corbyn Confesses Passion For Manhole Covers

Lorraine Kelly asked Jeremy Corbyn all the big questions this morning:

LK: “What about this? You collect manhole covers? Not actual manhole covers, one would assume, or drains. What is it… is this true?”

JC: “Well, are we talking privately here?”

LK: “No, there’s people listening out there!”

JC: “Oh really?

Seumas Milne: “It Wasn’t Only Negative What Happened in the Riots”

As ‘anarchist’ rioters (who want a bigger state) rampaged through London last week, setting a police car ablaze and blinding a horse with a firework, it’s worth asking what Team Corbyn think. Here is Seumas Milne speaking after the London riots.[…]

Cameron Heckled: “CBI: Voice of Brussels”

The CBI wouldn’t let representatives from the Vote Leave campaign into their conference this morning, though two Eurosceptic protesters managed to sneak in and heckle the PM with a cry of “CBI, voice of Brussels”Vote Leave have confirmed to Guido that they helped organise the protest…

UPDATE: Here is Cameron talking up the opportunities of Brexit:

“Some people seem to say that really Britain couldn’t survive, couldn’t do okay outside the European Union.

Julia Hartley-Brewer Slaps Down Class War Nut

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
