Eddie Izzard Loses Again

Eddie Izzard Edit

Eddie Izzard has lost his bid for a seat on Labour NEC’s, falling 12,000 votes short of victory. There were six places up for grabs, he came eighth in the running, behind all the Corbynista candidates. That Izzard campaign record in full:

  • join the euro
  • elect Ken Livingstone
  • elect Gordon Brown
  • vote Yes in the AV referedum
  • elect Ed Miliband
  • elect Andy Burnham as Labour leader
  • Remain in the EU
  • run for Labour’s NEC

The lipstick kiss of death strikes again…

Hard-Left Win Labour NEC Elections

The pro-Corbyn Momentum / Grassroots Alliance slate has won all six seats up for grabs on Labour’s NEC. Momentum’s Jon Lansman, tipped as the next general secretary, tweets:

Corbyn’s control of the NEC is consolidated…

Shadow Cabinet Minister Slams “Scabs”: “They Should Expect to Be Called What They Are”

Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 14.35.42

Gobby Labour MP and Shadow Scotland Secretary Dave Anderson has written to his local paper to mouth off about “scabs” breaking the rail strike. The Newcastle Chronicle criticised Anderson for saying he wouldn’t use trains “operated by scab labour”. Anderson has now doubled down, writing:

“As long as people choose to take part in this despicable behaviour, then they should expect to be called exactly what they are and not seek any dignity by declaring themselves to be replacement or substitute workers. Scab is a hard word and it is meant to be so in order to prey on the consciences of those who would seek to prevent working people from being treated as respected partners in the workplace and not as serfs.”

New Corbynistas Can Vote in Leadership Election

corbyn

A judge has ruled that 130,000 new supporters who registered since January WILL be allowed to vote in the Labour leadership contest. The majority of those are believed to be Corbynistas. Team Jez will think he’s home and dry…

UPDATE: The Labour Party is apparently going to appeal the judgement. LOLabour…

UPDATE II: Owen Smith says he welcomes the judgement but now wants the leadership timetable extended.

UPDATE III: Labour say they will appeal anyway, wasting more of their members’ money in the courts.

A New Fathers 4 Justice activist has scaled the roof of Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington home and is telling LBC he will be up there “for as long as it takes”. These stunts aren’t as glamorous as they used to be.

Corbyn Arsonist Threatened to Blow Up Bank

CORBYN THREAT

A man who set fire to Jeremy Corbyn’s office is facing jail after threatening to blow up his local bank. Islington resident Peter Martin, who three years ago had a run in with Jezza and ended up trashing his constituency office then setting it alight, was nicked after telling two Barclays cashiers he was going to kill them and their families over a dispute about £62 missing from his account. Guess this is one constituent Jez for which won’t be writing a character reference

Corbyn v Smith Leadership Hustings: LIVE

Owen Smith getting booed and heckled with every answer at Labour’s leadership hustings. In Cardiff. Oily and Jez are tearing chunks off each other. Get your popcorn out…

Corbyn Gives Shami Peerage For Anti-Semitism Whitewash

Corbyn has thrown away all chance of making any political capital out of Cameron’s honours list by giving a peerage to Shami Chakrabarti in exchange for her anti-Semitism whitewash report. Shami buried evidence of anti-Semitism at Oxford University Labour Club and recommended no lifetime ban for anti-Semites.[…]

Smith Savaged on Gogglebox: “Owen Who?”

Susan Sarandon Takes Over Owen Smith’s Website

Well, this is weird. If you log on to Owen Smith’s website and click on any of his “issues“, every webpage that comes up is accompanied by a picture of Susan Sarandon. Guido missed that endorsement and has reached out to the Hollywood A-lister and Oily’s team to see what is going on.[…]

LEAK: Labour Conference Security Crisis

IAN MCNICOL G4S

Labour are at risk of having no security for their party conference, Guido can reveal. Leaked memos sent to General Secretary Iain McNicol reveal that the party’s HQ is even worried the police could cancel conference entirely. How has this clusterf**k happened?[…]

Owen Smith Promised “Action on Sheep Nuisance”

OWEN SMITH ROSS KEMP

Back in 2006 Owen Smith fought (and lost) the Blaenau Gwent by-election. His campaign literature shows he was partial to a sweeping policy statement back then too. Smith pledged “action on sheep nuisance”, promising to “slap instant fines” on “irresponsible farmers” who let their sheep “stray onto roads and through gardens”. […]

Spot the Difference: Southwark Labour’s £15,400 Logo Redesign

Southwark-Logo-Proposals

Labour-led Southwark council have defended a £15,400 taxpayer-funded redesign of their logo, saying it is “more sustainable and appropriate for digital use, as well as being more compact and requiring less space around it.” In other words, they’ve removed a full stop, changed the colours and made it a bit smaller.[…]

Smith’s Fantasy Minimum Wage Numbers

owen1

Owen Smith has hit back at Guido’s story from earlier by producing the above graphic claiming his proposed minimum wage would be higher than the Tories’. Unfortunately for Oily this raises more questions than it answers. First, Smith’s team have confirmed their numbers are dependent on him becoming Prime Minister this year.[…]

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
