Cameron: A Strike at the Heart of ISIS

The BBC report that Jihadi John was targeted by two MQ 9 Reaper drones at 20:50 GMT yesterday evening. Looks like they’re pretty confident they got him…

Corbyn Sings Incy Wincy Spider

He definitely struggles with the words…

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. Guess what? He’s a fan. 

“Riots do express fundamental social anger and that’s something that’s happened throughout history… Actually, I thought they were quite, you know, despite the way they were portrayed at the time, there was a lot of very political expressions, certainly in particular, in some areas in particular, certainly in East London but in other places as well, where people were expressing, in quite a strong class-orientated way, a hatred not only of the police but of the system… So, I mean, it wasn’t only negative, what happened in the riots. And I think that those people clearly are part of what, of the people that need to be organised and need to find a political expression and social organisation… But it’s also an opportunity. It’s a huge opportunity to channel that anger.”

There you have it: Labour’s new core vote strategy…

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. I don’t think that is true. Let’s be frank, Britain is an amazing country. We’ve got the fifth biggest economy in the world. We’re a top ten manufacturer. We’ve got incredibly strong financial services. The world wants to come and do business here. Look at the record of inward investment. Look at the leaders beating the path to our door to come and see what’s happening with this great country’s economy. The argument isn’t whether Britain could survive outside the EU. Of course it could.”

Something to chew on for his CBI audience, who are some of the worst anti-Brexit scaremongers around…

Julia Hartley-Brewer Slaps Down Class War Nut

The Class War representative on the Daily Politics took his life into his own hands when he bravely decided to call Julia-Hartley Brewer “sweetheart“. Apparently he said something much ruder to her off air too. And then claimed he supported the Suffragettes. Everyday sexism…

At one point he said he was homeless, later he said he left the Guy Fawkes protest and “went home” because it was boring. Strange.

UPDATE:

Muted Response on Baroness’ Big Day

Congratulations to the new Baroness Pidding of Amersham, who was sworn in to the House of Lords yesterday. Though it is slightly odd that this top Tory activist, who was credited with helping to run the Road Trip 2015 campaign during the election, received such a muted response from the Tory youth movement on her big day. “There are just three messages of congratulations on her Facebook page,” notes a knowing Tory source. Surely nothing to do with Baroness Pidding’s popularity plummeting since her implication in the Elliott Johnson bullying scandal…

Theresa May Will Be Able to Identify Journalists’ Sources

Home Secretaries will be given powers to identify journalists’ sources without authorisation from a judge. Theresa May has confirmed she will be able to sign an “urgent warrant” to view journalists’ sources without consulting a judge, which will then be subject to “review” in the courts:

“There will be an urgent process, so it will be possible for a Secretary of State to sign an urgent warrant for it to come immediately into effect, and then there will be a period of time within which the judge will have to review that and then make a decision as to whether it should continue or not.”

Given the widespread abuse of RIPA by the police, and coppers then covering it up, this is a concerning attack on the most fundamental basics of press freedom. They’ll be entering newsrooms to smash up hard drives next… 

UPDATE:  A Home Office source gets in touch to stress that the urgent warrants will only be used in extreme circumstances, for example when there is an immediate threat to life, with a warrant then having to be authorised by the Judicial Commissioner within five days, at which point they would rule on whether the data can be kept or destroyed. They insist this provision means sources will always be protected…

No Marx For Dave’s Commie Gag

“Look at his appointments. His media adviser is a Stalinist. His new policy adviser is a Trotskyist. And his economic adviser is a communist. If he’s trying to move the Labour Party to the left, I’d give him full Marx.”

Incidentally, who is the communist economics adviser?

UPDATE:  Not the full Marx after all:

Tim Farron is asked by GQ how he will be remembered:

“I won’t be. So there’s no point in worrying about how you’d like to be remembered at all.”
