Corbynistas Already Planning Victory Rally

There might be a month until the ballot closes, but that hasn’t stopped some excitable Corbyn supporters from organising a mass “victory party” for their man on September 12:

Nearly 1,000 people have already signed up to attend the event, which sounds just great:

Will they be flying the red flag through the streets of London, or are they a tad premature?

Deadline Extended as Labour Website Crashes Under Pressure

Labour have extended the midday deadline to register to vote for their new leader until 3pm, after the sign up page on their website crashed under pressure this morning:

At the time of going to pixel an estimated 70,000 ‘supporters’ and 90,000 union members had registered to choose the next leader. This is what happens next:

Friday 14 August: Ballot mailing despatched

12 noon Thursday 10 September: Ballot closes

Saturday 12 September: Special conference to announce result

Sunday 27 September: Labour Party conference begins

31 days til we welcome our new Corbynista overlords? True Labour supporters can sign up here

Hillary’s Chief Strategist Lined Up for Labour – So Long As Led By ABC

Multiple sources say top Obama pollster Joel Benenson, now working on the Hillary Clinton campaign, is lined up to work for the Labour Party – in particular on the London mayoral campaign. Benenson, who runs a consulting firm which advises Democrat politicians, was a senior adviser to the Obama campaigns in 2008 and 2012 and is now the chief strategist for Hillary’s presidential run. He also worked for Gordon Brown in 2009There is one obstacle…

The Hillary campaign guru won’t work for the Labour Party if Jeremy Corbyn is leader. Sources point to Corbyn’s extreme views on Israel-Palestine and Hamas as a major stumbling block to him coming on board. Benenson is described by GQ as the “go-to guy for any politico wanting to take the public’s temperature“. That he won’t work for Corbyn is a small indicator of Corbyn’s trans-Atlantic toxicity…

Corbyn’s Official Filmmaker Made ‘Golden Shower’ Video Trolling Corbyn

The filmmaker who made Jeremy Corbyn’s latest campaign video is also responsible for series of videos taking the mickey out of Jezza. Not only does William Pine make snazzy films for the Corbyn campaign, he and his “Golden Shower Gang” have made two very different videos about him for their “Golden News Shower” series. In the films, professional troll Nimrod Kamer, a former freedom fighter in the Israel Defense Force, asks an unimpressed Corbyn why people in Hackney can’t vote for the SNP and suggests he checks out a “really nice young” red head in Israel’s parliament:

Wonder if Jez knows his video guy is working with the Israeli army to undermine him…

Corbyn 32 Points Ahead in New Poll

YouGov for the Times say Corbyn has extended his lead of three weeks ago from 17 points to 32:

One more heave, comrades…

No, Corbynmania is Not “Sweeping the Nation”

“A movement is born,” claimed Jezza’s unofficial PR man Owen Jones last week: “across the nation, in every village and town and city you can see this movement emerging”. The hyperbole is even more generous in Owen’s interview with the man himself today: “in the last few weeks Corybnmania has swept across the country”. Well, has it?

The latest figures show there are around 270,000 Labour members.

In addition, around 70,000 have joined as affiliated supporters.

50,000 are so-called ‘registered supporters’.

A total of 390,000 people.

The voting age population of the UK is 50,780,423.

If we (generously) assume that around half of all those affiliated with the Labour Party support Corbyn – 195,000 people – then what proportion of the voting population is a Corbynista? Just 0.38%. 

Hardly sweeping the country…

Mrs Burnham Unravels Andy’s Career Spin

Andy Burnham’s reality-stretching campaign against Westminster bubble careerists has suffered another blow thanks to his lady wife. When they met on the first day of university, what did an 18-year-old Andy tell Marie-France he wanted to be when grew up?

“Do you know what you said to me on the first night, when I said ‘what do you want to do when you grow up?’ You said you wanted to be an MP.”

From wanting to be an MP at 18, to being a parliamentary researcher, to being a SpAd, to being an MP, to being a minister, to being a leadership candidate. That anti-Westminster bubble career trajectory in full…

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
