Cooper’s Cross-Party Migrant Message to MPs: “Take a Selfie”

Yvette Cooper has responded to Andy Burnham weaponising the refugee crisis by writing to every single MP, telling them the situation “transcends party politics and the Labour Party leadership election”. See what she did there…

Yvette’s bold cross-party pitch?

“We are writing to you now to encourage you to… Take a selfie with a #refugeeswelcome banner and put it on Twitter and Facebook, encouraging others to do the same.”

Such leadership.

Cooper and Burnham might be trying to make a stand on migrants now, but they weren’t always so noble. The Telegraph points out the pair’s voting record on asylum issues:

Only Jezza’s voting record has been consistently migrant-friendly…

Burnham Weaponises Refugee Crisis

Andy Burnham just couldn’t resist using the refugee crisis to get one over on Yvette Cooper this morning. Asked about Cooper’s call for the country to take more refugees, Burnham somewhat tastelessly boasted: “I called the day before for Britain to take our fair share”.

Even the lefty Twitterati are clutching their pearls. Stay classy…

UPDATE: He’s doubling down:

Probably best to stop now.

UPDATE II: Yvette’s spokesman hits back:

Taiwanese View on Labour Leadership

Those crazy Taiwanese video guys have the best analysis of the Labour leadership election so far:

Corbyn as Jesus is a particular highlight…

UPDATE II: Corbyn apologises for the Iraq War:

Guardian Writer’s Vile Slur Against Falklands Hero

Earlier this week Falklands hero Simon Weston, whose suffered 46% burns and whose face was left unrecognisable after RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by the Argentinians, said that Jeremy Corbyn’s policy on the Falklands was tantamount to “surrender“. This is how regular Guardian writer and editor of the ‘Lenin’s Tomb’ blog, Richard Seymour, responded to the story:

Seymour tells his critics he only had a freelance contract with the Guardian for three years, but he wrote on average at least fortnightly for the paper’s website during 2014. What a charmer…

Anti-UKIP Burnham v Patriotic ‘Purple’ Andy

Internationalist lefty Andy Burnham has UKIP in his sights this morning, vowing to “fight nationalism wherever I find it“:

“Across Europe, we have seen the rise of nationalist parties… And established parties have begun to follow suit. Here in this country, the governing party spent an election playing to English nationalism… As Labour leader, I will fight nationalism – an ugly brand of politics that seeks to divide people one from another – wherever I find it. It is a dead-end towards division, separation and conflict… Labour has been too weak in standing up to nationalism.”

Yet, after Labour lost in May, patriotic ‘purple’ Andy Burnham claimed “every single place that I went to” was concerned about immigrants. “Standing up to nationalism” meant he invited local ‘kippers to a meeting to try and win them over, saying they are “not xenophobic or racist“. His speeches echoed Farage’s “divisive” rhetoric on the train, sympathetically recounting the concerns of one anti-foreigner voter:

“When you’re at work and you have a tea break, you go into the tea room and have a chat with people. When I’m at work I have my tea break on my own because I’m the only one who speaks English”

What was that about “an ugly brand of politics”?

Burnham “raided” UKIP’s manifesto for his leadership pitch. He copied UKIP’s lines and said that “MPs all live in posher areas, don’t see what they go through and hence don’t help them“. He lifted Farage’s “metropolitan elite” buzzword. “Labour has been too weak in standing up to nationalism…”

Corbyn: Quoting Things I Have Said is “Cynical” Journalism

Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn has had a good old whinge about nasty journalists having the gall to point out things he has said in the past. Asked by ITV about those bin Laden comments, covered by all papers, Jez fired back:

“They were quite cynically and deliberately mis-reported… the point I made was it was a culmination of awful events all across the region and I said if they were capable of getting to Osama bin Laden then put him on trial.”

Awwww.

Was he cynically misrepresented? Is that really the only point he was making? Here is the quote in full context:

“I can’t answer the question of why [Obama will not release evidence of bin Laden’s death]. We can only guess that there is something fishy here; that Bin Laden wasn’t there, therefore, there has to be a story. Or, the pictures are very gory, or they show something else, such as he was unarmed and was shot – as may well, on this, there was no attempt that I can see to arrest him, to put him on trial, to go through that process. This was an assassination attempt and is yet another tragedy upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy. The World Trade Center attack was a tragedy, the war in Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy.”

So, we have a) a nutty conspiracy theory about “something fishy” going on, b) Corbyn describing bin Laden’s assassination as a “tragedy“, and c) Corbyn equating bin Laden’s death with 9/11. Apparently directly quoting his own words is a smear…

ITV report Corbyn then moaned that “an awful lot of journalists were spending a lot of time trawling the archives for anything he has said”. Well, yes, the man does supposedly want to be Prime Minister…

Owen Jones Wouldn’t Serve Under Corbyn

Liz Kendall turned the tables on Owen Jones in his latest video, asking the baby faced Guardian columnist if he would serve under Jeremy Corbyn.

Liz “Would you take a job in Jeremy Corbyn’s office?”

Owen “No. No.”
