Corbynistas Cheer “Electability Isn’t the Most Important Thing”

Meanwhile, over in Camden, the Corbynistas are amassing to cheer musician and anti-Israel loon Brian Eno’s claim that “electability isn’t really the most important thing”:

Just minutes earlier Ken Livingstone had taken to the stage to tear into “economically illiterate” and “unelectable” Chris Leslie.

And to think just 48 hours ago Corbyn was calling for “unity”…

‘Granny-Bashing’ Labour MP Has Case Kicked Out

Readers will remember the curious case of Marie Rimmer, accused of kicking a woman at a polling station before the election. Marie is now the Labour MP for St Helens South and she was in court to face assault charges today, only to have her case somewhat ironically booted out on a technicality:

Another stunning CPS success. Rimmer’s lawyer tells the BBC the Crown could mount a second prosecution…

Hop-ocalypse Now: Beer Would Run Out in Corbyn’s Britain

Bitter Blairite critics say the Draught Corbyn campaign couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewey, and the evidence from Venezuela suggests this is not hop-perbole. The socialist paradise is running out of beer after its main brewer was forced to shut because of a lack of imported barley:

“Members of some of the dozens of unions representing Polar workers have limited distribution of the small bottles of light beer that are favored in Venezuela.”

With Chavista Jez still a-head in the polls, his team will at the very yeast need to craft a careful response and not just dismiss this as froth. Let this be an amber warning to Corbyn supporters…

Andy “Seven Eights” Burnham

Andy Burnham has wheeled out his parents to spin for him in today’s Mirror. It was all going so well until this revelation from his mother, Eileen:

“They called our Andy ‘Seven Eights’ at school. He couldn’t remember that seven eights are 56.”

Muuummmm, shut uppp….

Mrs Burnham isn’t the only one to have doubted Andy’s numerical abilities. Before Ed Miliband chose Ed Balls as his Shadow Chancellor, he searched his Shadow Cabinet for an alternative. The FT famously revealed that Burnham was suggested for the job:

“But Andy can’t do maths,” was Mr Miliband’s lament.

It’s not like Burnham was Chief Secretary to the Treasury ahead of the 2008 crash or anything. This sort of embarrassing information could really hurt him when he’s trying to convince Corbyn to make him Shadow Chancellor…

Tom Watson’s Campaign Cock-Up Amnesia

You wouldn’t want to be the Labour genius responsible for diverting resources away from key seats when Tom Watson finds you. He’s on the warpath:

“Given that we were collecting so much data around the country and we have got various smart people who can analyse the data, why didn’t the smart people pick up we were in trouble in Telford, Vale of Clwyd, and dare I say it in Ed Balls’ seat? I want to find out why that happened.”

Uh oh.

Well, one such “smart person” took it upon himself to set up his own unofficial target seat list, diverting valuable resources away from marginal seats which Labour went on to lose. Instead of focusing on Telford, Vale of Clwyd and Morley and Outwood, this rogue MP rounded up hundreds of Labour activists and herded them to Sheffield Hallam on a failed vanity “mission to kick Nick Clegg out of parliament”. The MP arrogantly admitted defying his party’s campaign organisers:

“Though [Labour’s Sheffield Hallam candidate] is not on the official key seat list, he is top of mine.”

And who was that MP? One Tom Watson

Corbynista Knives Out For Counter-Revolutionary Chris Leslie

Dangerous counter-revolutionary Chris Leslie has dared to speak out against “starry-eyed, hard left” Corbynomics. And the Corbynistas are very upset.

Unite Political Director and Len McCluskey’s baby momma, Jennie Formby, apparently has a better “grasp of economic theory”:

When delusional tax hypocrite Richard Murphy says you’re wrong, you know you’re onto something:

Not to mention Ken:

Jezza’s army of militant internet thugs are getting nasty:

How’s that whole unity thing working out for ya?

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 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 […]

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.”
