War: Corbyn Responds to Blair

That famous Jezza temper comes out again…

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.

Yvette Cooper has trousered £82,000, £50,000 of which came from shamed ‘expenses Queen’ Barbara Follett and her husband Ken, who have been longstanding financial backers of the Balls-Coopers.

Liz Kendall has declared only £36,000 of donations, her benefactors include Patricia Hewitt and Blairite obergruppenführer Tim Allan of Portland.

Corbyn meanwhile has declared a grand total of zero, suggesting he has yet to cash Unite’s cheque or receive a single donation above the threshold at which MPs have to disclose funding. He has raised over £30,000 in small donations from individuals through a crowdfunding effort.

So far Burnham’s effort to buy the leadership is trailing Corbyn’s austere campaign…

Roll Call of Labour ‘Morons’

From Panglossian cheerleader to doomsayer in the space of two months, Labour spinner John McTernan had some choice words after last night’s poll:

“The moronic MPs who nominated Jeremy Corbyn to ‘have a debate’ need their heads felt. They should be ashamed of themselves. They’re morons.”

That list of ‘morons’ who nominated Corbyn in full:

Diane Abbott
Rushanara Ali
Margaret Beckett
Richard Burgon
Dawn Butler
Ronnie Campbell
Sarah Champion
Jeremy Corbyn
Jo Cox
Neil Coyle
Jon Cruddas
Clive Efford
Frank Field
Louise Haigh
Kelvin Hopkins
Rupa Huq
Imran Hussain
Huw Irranca-Davies
Sadiq Khan
David Lammy
Clive Lewis
Rebecca Long-Bailey
Gordon Marsden
John McDonnell
Michael Meacher
Grahame Morris
Chi Onwurah
Kate Osamor
Tulip Siddiq
Dennis Skinner
Cat Smith
Andrew Smith
Gareth Thomas
Emily Thornberry
Jon Trickett
Catherine West

The likes of Sadiq, Lammy, Cruddas and Emily Thornberry will be sweating…

Aide’s Fury as Hodge Dodges Vote

Meet Liz Bradshaw. Liz is very upset with the Labour MPs who abstained on last night’s welfare vote. In fact, she is “asbsolutely disgusted”:

When she’s not sharing her passionate views on Facebook, what does Liz do? According to her LinkedIn, she works as a “parliamentary adviser” and “head of office” for Margaret Hodge:

That would be the same Margaret Hodge who abstained last night. Or, as Liz so eloquently put it, “allowed legislation to pass that will mean more children in this country go hungry… for purely political purposes“. Take it this “parliamentary adviser” will be doing the honourable thing and resigning?

David Lammy ‘Does a Lammy’

David Lammy has, as it known in common parlance, ‘done a Lammy’:

Now then.

Tax credits were introduced in 2003.

David Lammy was born in 1972.

That means Lammy was 31 when tax credits were introduced.

At least he didn’t say Marie Antoinette won the Nobel prize for her work on radiation. Oh.

‘Paedo’ MP’s Late Night Toilet Lurking

A youthful male parliamentary source gets in touch with a strange tale about the MP at the centre of Sunday’s paedophile allegations:

“He is always weird in the toilets. His office is surrounded by Tory MPs’ offices and their male researchers.

Several days each week he goes into the loo on [LOCATION REDACTED] to put on his aftershave.

He has said “hello young man” to me in there at least twice.

Once my mate was in there late at night and [NAME REDACTED] said to him “Now aren’t you a good boy for staying late”.

If I wasn’t a 6ft guy, I might have felt a bit intimidated at [NAME REDACTED] saying “hello young man” to me whilst entering the toilet. I was leaving as he came in so we were pretty close. This happened twice.”

Dark.

Harman Horror at Penile Drugs Injection

Guido was having a Friday afternoon peruse of the Southwark News when he suddenly crossed his legs and winced:

Southwark council leader Peter John recalls the time Harriet Harman visited the Ayelsbury council estate with a local councillor:

“They were in a lift and a man was injecting drugs into his penis. That’s not a sign of a successful community. That’s not the kind of community we want to see.”

Funnily enough not an anecdote ever repeated in one of Hattie’s speeches. She’ll never be able to hear the words ‘lift shaft’ the same way…

Burnham’s Media Grandstanding Falls Flat With Labour Supporters

Following Andy Burnham’s amusingly hypocritical grandstanding earlier this week, LabourList have polled their readers on whether they think their next leader should refuse to talk to the Sun. It’s bad news for Andy:

Turns out most Labour supporters think talking to the 27% of The Sun’s millions of readers who voted Labour in May is a sensible idea…

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.”
