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

jezwecan

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…

Yet Another Burnham Flip Flop

flipflop

Last night Andy Burnham told the LBC hustings that he would serve in Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet:

“I would. I would serve the Labour Party at any level that it asked me to serve the Labour Party.”

Iain Dale pushed the ‘frontrunner’ on this:

Cooper and Burnham in Corbyn Tail Spin

Cooper says that last night’s poll proves that only she can beat Corbyn, when it fact it says the complete opposite:

“This doesn’t reflect our internal data and significantly understates the huge number of members and supporters giving Yvette their first preference.

Moneybags Burnham Trails Despite Six Figure Funding Bonanza

A Guido investigation can reveal that Jeremy Corbyn is leading Andy Burnhan in the Labour leadership race despite Burnham raising over £100,000 more in donations.

Burnham has declared £132,000 of donations towards his leadership bid, accepting cash from lefty doctors, the hippy green subsidy sponger Ecotricity and defence lobbyist Howard Borrington, among others.[…]

Quote of the Day

David Cowling, the BBC’s head of political research, in an internal memo…

“It seems to me that the London bubble has to burst if there is to be any prospect of addressing the issues that have brought us to our current situation. There are many millions of people in the UK who do not enthuse about diversity and do not embrace metropolitan values yet do not consider themselves lesser human beings for all that. Until their values and opinions are acknowledged and respected, rather than ignored and despised, our present discord will persist. Because these discontents run very wide and very deep and the metropolitan political class, confronted by them, seems completely bewildered and at a loss about how to respond (“who are these ghastly people and where do they come from?” doesn’t really hack it). The 2016 EU referendum has witnessed the cashing in of some very bitter bankable grudges but I believe that, throughout this 2016 campaign, Europe has been the shadow not the substance.”
