Corbyn’s Brother Endorses Trump

piers

Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers has endorsed Donald Trump, writing that he will end the “corrupt evil Wall Street Clinton EU establishment”. In the last few days Piers has followed and retweeted a series of Trump campaign accounts, and favourably shared a number of his videos. Commenting on one Trump speech, the Labour leader’s brother says: “YES! Together we people of the world must destroy… Clinton”. It’s the endorsement they all wanted. Piers’ next job: Make Jeremy Great Again…

BUS-TED: Labour Hit With Maximum Expenses Fraud Fine, McNicol Broke Law

BUSTED

Labour has been hit with the maximum £20,000 fine after the Electoral Commission found a total of 107 invoices were missing from the party’s general election expenses return. Labour general secretary Iain McNicol was found to have committed an offence under section 82(4)(b) of PPERA in respect of the missing payments and a further offence under section 82(4)(b) in respect of the missing invoices. Labour have also been slammed for failing to declare payments in relation to their Labour Express and Labour Students bus tours, which were revealed by Guido. The Commission ruled:

“a further 49 payments relating to costs associated with the Labour Express tour and Labour Students tour, which should have been included in the party spending return”

The report is damning of McNicol:

“Mr McNicol failed, without reasonable excuse, to deliver to the Commission a campaign spending return which was a statement of all payments made by the Party in respect of its campaign for the 2015 UKPGE. In total 74 payments totalling £123,748 were missing from the Party’s 2015 UKPGE campaign spending return without a reasonable excuse. 54.

Further and in respect of the same return, Mr McNicol failed to deliver to the Commission all invoices and receipts for campaign payments of more than £200. Thirty three invoices and/or receipts were missing (in addition to those associated with the missing 74 payments), with a combined value of £34,392.”

This investigation looked at Labour’s national spend, the police are still investigating individual candidates such as Cat Smith. Despite finding at least two offences committed, over a hundred invoices and over a hundred thousand pounds missing, all the toothless Electoral Commission can do is award a small fine…

Clive Lewis in Sturgeon’s Pocket

sturgeon-lewis

The seed planted in voters’ minds that Ed Miliband would be in the SNP’s pocket was widely seen as a major factor behind the Tory victory in 2015. Time and time again Miliband failed to convince the public that he wouldn’t do a deal with the Nats. Today Clive Lewis, Shadow Business Secretary and possible future leader, is now openly backing working with the SNP:

“I’m simply saying that we want to see a Labour government in Westminster and that means asking some hard questions about how we’re going to achieve that, especially if the boundary changes come in … If that means working with the SNP then we have to look at that.”

Means a quick and easy redesign of those Tory election posters…

Diane Abbott Offered Interns £2 Below London Living Wage

livingwagefail

Diane Abbott has called for London to have its own minimum wage and says the Greater London Authority should not work with companies that don’t pay the voluntary London Living Wage. Unfortunate, then, that she’s been advertising for jobs in in her Westminster office well below the London Living Wage. New interns are offered £7.20 an hour, £2.20 lower than the LLW, which is set at £9.40. When Diane was confronted over the weekend, the salary in the advert was bumped up.

‘The Left’s Jewish Problem’

Dave Rich is deputy director of communications at the Community Security Trust (CST), associate research fellow at the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism, and author of The Left’s Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Anti-Semitism.” Speaking at a forum hosted by Fathom Journal, this is a very temperate analysis of how the Labour Party has got into the position it is in, well worth watching this video interview.

Prezza For Jezza

prezza

Guido can confirm that John Prescott’s son David is joining Jeremy Corbyn’s office as his new speechwriter. Prezza Jnr is best known for denying that he tweets the gags from his dad’s Twitter account, so maybe we’ll be seeing a new, joke-telling Jez from now on. David is not exactly a Corbynista, he worked on the Andy Burnham leadership campaign. He has long felt that the “Red Prince” tag held him back in finding a safe seat. Nonetheless a canny hire by the leader’s office…

Chuka’s Blatant Briefing Backfires

“Allies of Chuka” texted friendly members of the Lobby last night with the same tenuous line: that the Tories had blocked him from the Home Affairs committee chairmanship because they fear him as a potential future Labour leader. You’ll rarely get a more transparent and less believable briefing. Guido recalls a senior Labour figure a few years back explaining to hacks at Ed Miliband’s Christmas drinks party that Chuka would never be leader because everyone in Labour despises him. Whatever he’s spinning, the truth is Chuka is so unpopular with his own colleagues in the PLP he never stood a chance of winning the Home Affairs gig…

Labour Called For Migrant Dental Checks

byrne

The last Labour government advocated the same migrant dental checks that have caused so much outrage among the Twitterati today. Back in 2007 the then immigration minister Liam Byrne said that dental checks had to be considered to prevent abuse of the system:

“If it is true that a dental x-ray is able to establish within a more precise range an individuals’ age than any other form of determination then I think we have really got to look very hard at that evidence. We cannot have adults in the children’s system. Adults in the children’s system, I believe, pose a serious threat to our obligation to protect children effectively.”

A great find by Miles Goslett. As you can see above, this was covered by the BBC at the time. The David Davies proposal that is causing so much outcry was originally proposed by Labour nine years ago…

Corbynistas Back Anti-Semitism Row MP For Home Affairs Chair

Days after the Home Affairs committee published its anti-Semitism report, Corbynistas have named an MP embroiled in multiple anti-Semitism rows as their choice for its next chairman. Paul Flynn has next to no chance of winning, but the decision by five Shadow Cabinet ministers and other top Corbynistas to sponsor his vanity bid has infuriated colleagues.[…] Read the rest

Corbyn Condemned By Home Affairs Anti-Semitism Inquiry

corbyn22

Jeremy Corbyn has been strongly condemned by the Home Affairs Select Committee for failing to understand anti-Semitism and creating a “safe space” for racists in the Labour Party. The inquiry’s damning findings are laid out in as severe language as you will ever see from a select committee:

“Despite his proud record on fighting racism, the Committee is not persuaded that Mr Corbyn fully appreciates the distinct nature of contemporary antisemitism, and the fact that it is perfectly possible for an ‘anti-racist campaigner’ to express antisemitic views.
