Broad Early Support For Corbyn

Last month Guido speculated that Labour’s enemies might ‘do a Balotelli’ and take up Harriet Harman’s offer to engage in the party’s leadership race.

Jeremy Corbyn is certainly enjoying some broad early support…

Tories, LibDems and “social media socialists” of the world, unite!

Corbyn Invited Terrorists and War Criminals Into Parliament

Q: How is that whole ‘broadening the debate’ thing working out for Labour?

A: Well, they have on their ballot paper a man who invited Hezbollah and Hamas into our corridors of power:

“Tomorrow evening it will be my pleasure and my honour to host an event in parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. And I’ve also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak as well. Unfortunately the Israelis would not allow them to travel here… The idea that [Hamas] should be labelled as a terrorist organisation by the British government is really a big, big historical mistake and I would invite the government to reconsider its position on this matter and start talking directly to Hamas and Hezbollah.”

According to those well-known Zionist stooges, Amnesty International, Hamas is guilty of war crimes, torture, abductions and summarily killing civilians.

Amnesty also say Hezbollah are guilty of war crimes and deliberately targeting Israeli civilians in breach of humanitarian law.

Those are the people a man who 36 Labour MPs nominated to be their leader calls his “friends”…

Liz’s Mujahideen Hit Back Cooper/Burnham Droning

TALIBAN

Are comparisons to the Taliban in British leadership elections the new Godwin’s Law? Forget the Taliban Tories, this morning’s Telegraph:

“We are now seeing the end of Taliban New Labour. All of those Blairites who hoped they might get their candidate elected have failed. The whole strategy for Liz was a Westminster strategy – she played up to the media, to the right-wing commentators, to the Blairite Taliban MPs, made a few headlines by saying she was relaxed about free schools and committing to defence spending, and just took a chance that the momentum would carry her forward. But the trouble with that is that the fizzle and sparkle has gone already. Now the contest has moved on to the membership, who will not be interested in that kind of rhetoric or those policies, you will see her star wane very quickly.”

Miaow! And here come the mujahideen:

Surely Labour should know better than most what happens when you try to fight the Taliban. The Taliban win.

Lammy and Sadiq Back Corbyn

Two hours until the noon deadline for Labour leadership nominations, and Jeremy Corbyn is edging closer to the 35 votes he needs to get on the ballot:

Sadiq Khan is also nominating someone he doesn’t think could win Labour an election:

“After a defeat of this scale, the Labour Party needs to have the widest possible debate. I won’t be voting for Jeremy Corbyn and I don’t think he can lead us to election victory in 2020. But I do know that across the Labour family many share Jeremy’s views on a number of matters – I believe these should be heard and tested in a democratic process. That’s why I will be nominating Jeremy, in the hope he makes it onto the ballot.”

Corbyn backers say expect a flurry of late nominations…

Stop Watson
