Sainsbury Broke Labour Rules, Purging Likely

LORD SAINSBURY

Top Labour donor Baron Sainsbury’s grant of over £2 million to the Lib Dems this year means, without any doubt, he has broken Labour’s strict membership rules. The 2016 rulebook, Chapter 2 clause I section 4 paragraph B calls for the automatic exclusion of any members who “supports a political organisation other than an official Labour group”. £2,125,000 to a rival party surely counts as support…

Sainsbury’s money, though much needed with the collapse of union donations on the horizon, can’t have been welcomed too much by the current leadership. Although Sainsbury has, particularly during the Blair years, donated some £15.6 million to the party, he’s given over £5 million to the New Labour faction’s Progress and £1.35 million to the Movement for Change – a now defunct front for David Miliband’s ambitions and that was once seen as integral to the New Labour continuity project in the way that Momentum is to Corbyn. The rules are however clear – with £2 million given to the LibDems – Sainsbury has to be purged by Labour’s Compliance Department…

Who Said it: Blair or Smith?

Can you tell the “oily” leadership candidate from his hated predecessor?

Labour Adviser Created “Theresa May for PM” Campaign

tm4pm

A former Labour adviser who denied supporting Theresa May was behind the pro-Theresa May campaign Twibbon. Jonny Chambers, who previously worked for Stella Creasy, lashed out on Twitter this morning after being barred from the Labour party after he “demonstrated support for the Conservative party on social media.” In a Facebook post, Chambers claimed that the allegations of “support” for May were a “wonderful demonstration of Labour’s values”, before denying any support had been given:

“Labour claim that evidence shows I have demonstrated support for the Conservatives – something I have never done. I posted an article about why Labour people should have a stake and an interest in a race that was choosing our next Prime Minister – and I quite clearly said that whilst Theresa should be the next Prime Minister, I wanted a Labour leader than can beat her and the Conservatives.”

In truth Chambers did a little more than a few tweets and an unread blogpost. His own Twibbon page shows he created the “TheresaMayForPM” imagery, complete with tagline “A country that works for everyone” – one of May’s campaign slogans. The cause was far more popular than any of his others, winning over 500 supporters. Chambers clearly idolises the PM, praising previous statements and even down playing Red Ed’s chances in a minority government:

scared of may led opposition

Chambers even tweeted one of Cameron’s harshest put-downs to Corbyn, followed by clapping hands signalling applause:

clapping corbyn

To cap it all off, he was an Owen Smith supporter. To be fair, the Corbynista’s have been calling them “red tories”…

#TrainGate: Labour Voters Trust Corbyn

CORBYN TRAINGATE YOUGOV

Labour voters showed their trust in Corbyn in a recent YouGov poll on TrainGate. 39% of current Labour voters believe Corbyn’s version of events – that there were no unreserved seats available – compared to 34% believing Virgin’s story. 44% think Corbyn was being dishonest but only 36% of Labour voters think that his dishonesty matters. On the stump supporters argue the attack by offshore privateer Branson helps Corbyn with activists…

Mosley’s Money Funding Watson’s Expanded Team

WATSON WANTS YOU

Labour’s deputy leader is recruiting a new political advisor, writer, head of policy, and correspondence assistant, with salaries ranging from £24,522 for the latter role to undisclosed figures for the top jobs. The four new hires will put Watson’s team in Parliament at a strength of 11 – in comparison the Chancellor, Foreign Secretary and Defence Secretary have 9 SpAds combined. Famous Labour donor’s children need apply…

Corbyn on TrainGate

Darren McCaffrey provoked Corbyn’s famous ire with the MSM when asking him questions about TrainGate. Corbyn’s story changed, claiming he couldn’t find two (rather than one) seats. Still more believable than Smith’s excuses this morning…

Smith Calls Corbyn a “Lunatic”


The Indy revealed Oily Smith lashing out at his elderly rival at a rally last night, implying Corbyn was “some… lunatic at the top of the Labour Party”:

“We’ve got to get two million people who actually voted Tory, 12 months ago, to vote Labour, in 106 seats. And what you won’t get from me, is some, you know, lunatic at the top of the Labour Party, you’ll have someone who tries to form a coherent narrative about what’s wrong with Britain.”

Oily has since offered a limp non-apology, claiming “I wasn’t talking about Jeremy Corbyn.” This hasn’t calmed Team Corbyn, who slammed the latter-day Blairite’s campaign:

“Owen Smith has degraded this contest by descending into personal abuse.”

What should have been a winning, post-TrainGate morning for Smith has turned into yet another speech disaster. Oily’s big announcement today that he would, suicidally, commit Labour to blocking Brexit is now over-shadowed…

Virgin Trains Offering Labour Conference Delegates 20% Discount

CORBYN TRAIN FLOOR edit

Virgin’s corporate partnership with Labour must be feeling the strain after Branson’s anti-Corbyn intervention this afternoon. Ironically Virgin Trains are offering members a 20% discount off ticket prices for delegates attending Labour’s autumn conference:

“With regular trains from London Euston, we can get you straight to Liverpool in just 2 hours 14 minutes, giving you the time to put your feet up or make those last minute preparations . Our trains will deliver you to the heart of Liverpool arriving fresh and prepared.”

The conference is already under pressure after Guido revealed the party had failed to line up a security company to protect the venue. So far it’s shaping up to be a dangerous, poorly attended event thronging only with Corbyn cultists with no seats – until the deselections!

UPDATE: Tories get better value for money, obviously:


UPDATE II: Corbyn confirms he did get a seat:


Meanwhile, a Virgin spokeswoman confirms to Guido that the deal is still on…

Owen Campaign’s Strategic Divide

OWEN-DILEMMA

Owen Smith is particularly desperate to try and win Wales and shore up his vote on home turf to avoid personal humiliation. When it comes to events and phone banking his campaign is very Welsh-centric – he’s focusing on South Wales disproportionately.[…]

Corbyn’s Train Squat Doesn’t Stand Up

Images released by Virgin Trains show that honest and authentic Jeremy Corbyn staged that video in which he sat on a train floor and appealed for “public ownership” of the railways. Virgin revealed that the 67 year-old Labour leadership favourite walked past “empty, unreserved seats” prior to filming the video.[…]

Corbynistas Attempting to Preempt Co-op Plan

In yesterday’s Sunday Times, Tim Shipman revealed that some nameless Labour moderates might use their sister Co-operative Party to form a new opposition. While plans for the immediate future include establishing a factional grouping, Shippers has uncovered a scheme to get Labour moderates to sign up MPs to the Co-operative Party itself, which has a pact to work with Labour in Parliament and elections.[…]

Oily Smith the Devolution Dodger

SMITH DEVOLUTION

Oily’s at it again, this time lying about his record as a “committed devolutionist”. Plaid Cymru’s Liz Saville Roberts lashed out at the Labour hopeful, calling his earlier claims a “perfect illustration of his cynical hypocrisy”. A spokesman for Smith struck back, saying “He has consistently campaigned and voted for further powers to be devolved to Wales, over crucial issues like social security and policing.” Regular readers can already guess who is telling the truth…

Of the 15 votes on Welsh devolution Smith has had the chance to vote in since first elected to Parliament in 2010, Smith has voted in just three of them, he was absent from the other 12 votes. […]

Top Brass Condemns “Delusional” Smith’s ISIS Gaffe

KEMP

Defence expert Colonel Richard Kemp, the former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, has blasted Owen Smith for his comments on ISIS. He tells Guido:

“This sort of delusional sickness affects Labour widely. Christine Shawcroft, a Corbyn ally and Labour National Executive Committee member, said not long ago that we should have a cup of tea with Islamic State rather than bombing them.

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!”
