New Private Poll: Corbyn 22 Points Clear

The Mirror have got hold of some more private Labour polling:

Burnham slips to third place, Corbyn still well out in front…

UPDATE:  Kendall camp responds:

“So-called “private polls” have no credibility and people should take no notice of them. If people have a real poll produced by a BPC member they should release it, rather than peddling questionable numbers”

Cooper and Watson Backer Under Investigation For ‘Undue Spiritual Influence’

Regular readers will remember Guido’s pre-election stories about Labour’s sex segregation rallies, organised in Birmingham by Labour councillor Ansar Ali Khan. The sinister gatherings allegedly involved British Muslims being ordered to vote Labour by religious leaders. Labour kept very quiet about it at the time.

Following our story, Khan is now under investigation for ‘undue spiritual influence’. His LibDem opponent Shamsur Rehman has filed an election petition to the High Court:

“I have launched this campaign to clean up local politics in Birmingham from spiritual, foreign or biraderi (Kashmiri clan) influence. The people of Washwood Heath deserve better even if they don’t know it yet. This is a matter of public importance, my purpose is to clean up politics in this city.”

The petition claims:

“It is alleged the respondent channels public money and projects to his existing supporters or predominantly the Kashmiri Muslim community to the exclusion of other communities in Washwood Heath.”

He’s backing Watson and Cooper, for the record.

Corbyn Rally Goes Wild as Speaker Claims UK ‘Not Worth Defending’

Jeremy-Corbyn-11_3328948b

At Sunday’s ‘Stand Up For Jeremy Corbyn’ rally in Covent Garden, one of the speakers claimed that Britain “isn’t a country that is worth defending”:

Full context for the loony left defenders here:

The crowd of Corbynistas erupted into cheers. So, what does their leader make of that?

UPDATE:

Corbyn refuses to distance himself from the comments:

“It was a fundraising event with a number of comedy slots, and that was one of them! If I didn’t think standing up for people and their standards of living and their basic, real securities was worthwhile then I wouldn’t be standing for leader of the Labour Party.”

Corbyn Ally Threatens ‘Street Violence’ If He Loses Leadership Election

It’s all kicking off in Venezuela, where President Nicolas Maduro is “promising street violence” if he loses power in the country’s upcoming elections. Charming.

Its currency is “entering free fall mode” according to the FT, losing 43% of its value in the last month. As food shortages engulf the socialist paradise, producers of milk, pasta, oil, rice, sugar and flour have been ordered to hand over as much as 100% of their produce to nationalised supermarkets. How is Maduro trying to boost his popularity? By making thinly veiled military threats to neighbouring Guyana.

Not that you’ll find any of that on Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign website. “Success for radical policies in Venezuela is being achieved by providing for the poorest, liberating resources, but above all by popular education and involvement,” Jezza writes among his pitch for the leadership. Only last month he attended a rally calling for “solidarity” with the Maduro regime. Hala Jez!

Champagne Socialists Back Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn has been lagging behind the other leadership candidates in the donations race, but his backers pulled out all the stops at last night’s “Stand up for Jeremy Corbyn” event at Covent Garden Community Centre. Attendees were invited to enter a raffle for a bottle of Heidsieck & Co “Monopole”, a fine vintage noted for its soft, yet citrusy flavour.

Other prizes included a well thumbed copy of red Ken’s “You can’t say that” and a signed “JezWeCan” vest…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
