The Tale of Lady Nugee’s Walled Garden in Islington

Snobby sacked Labour MP Emily Thornberry’s official title is Lady Nugee, by virtue of her marriage to the High Court Judge Sir Christopher Nugee. Some years ago, with him, Emily bought a small terraced house in her constituency when it was auctioned off by a local housing association – only as an investment, they lived in a far grander £3 million mansion elsewhere in Islington. In itself this was an unusual example of privatisation by a “socialist”…

An outraged constituent who was eventually evicted by the Housing Association claimed that he had come to her, his constituency MP, for help only to despair when she bought one of the privatised properties. It was all very embarrassing for Thornberry. The old man nailed his allegations to the door of the house she bought. Very Lutheran…

scooter-girlsThe row of terraced houses shared small gardens communally and for years neighbours’ young children had happily played together along the terrace’s back row of gardens. This irritated the new landlord Emily and she nagged, and nagged her neighbour next door to put up a fence. He was reluctant to do so because the gardens were tiny and he could see no harm being done by his two little girls riding their scooters along the row, they were only aged 3 and 5. In the end Emily had workmen build a giant fence down the middle to keep his children out. Emily’s now private garden went unused and became overgrown with weeds. How does Guido know this story is true?

They were his kids.

Twitter Bitch Fight of the Weekend: Tom Watson v Ivan Lewis

The Labour old guard spent their Sunday afternoons locked in a bruising Red on Red deathmatch. The protagonists: Blairite Shadow Cabinet minister Ivan Lewis and one time Brownite bootboy Tom Watson. The subject: Scottish Labour’s leadership election. The venue: Twitter.

Seconds out!

Alas, Ivan couldn’t quite bring himself to write ‘knifing Blair’…

Skinner: Vote UKIP and I’ll Be Dead in Six Months

“I’ve got a United Nations heart bypass… and it was done by a Syrian cardiologist, a Malaysian surgeon, a Dutch doctor, a Nigerian registrar, and these two people here [Reckless and Carswell] talk about sending them back from whence they came. If they did that to the hospitals in London I for one would be dead in six months.”

An old dinosaur accusing UKIP of being stuck in the past… 

Miliband: I Feel Respect When I See a White Van

Sky: “What goes through your mind when you see a white van outside a house?”

EM: “What goes through my mind is respect.”

Guido could watch this all day…

Another Stunning Intervention From Lucy Powell

“I would be deeply angry if someone came down my road and took a picture of my house and put it on the internet,” Miliband aide Lucy Powell told Andrew Neil on the Daily Politics.

“Deeply angry…”

UPDATE:

She also seemed confused about why Labour fared so badly in Rochester:

” I am not as complacent as Michael Gove is, who simply wants to put these issues down to by-election… We did badly because in part, this is a by-election.”

What was that about complacency?

White Van Dan Turns Up at Thornberry’s Mansion

What Does Thornberry Really Think?
Favourites “Ashamed 2 b English in these dark times” Tweet

Well the ‘favoriting‘ spree that she just did on Twitter is rather illuminating:

You would think she would just stay away for the internet for a while.

How sorry is she really?

Emily Thornberry Resigns

Thornberry’s statement:

“Earlier today I sent a tweet which has caused offence to some people. That was never my intention and I have apologised. However I will not let anything distract from Labour’s chance to win the coming general election. I have therefore tonight told Ed Miliband I will resign from the shadow cabinet.”

UPDATE: Full interview with White Van Man in the Sun tomorrow:

George Orwell knew a thing or two about left-wingers like Emily Thornberry:

“In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box.”

Labour’s prosecco progressives openly despise the suburban aspirational middle classes and are privately condescending towards the working classes and their traditional values…
