Trade Unionists Abuse Brave Strike Breakers

As is the case for millions of other Londoners this morning, the Guy Newsroom would not be able to get in if it were not for brave tube workers ignoring Bob Crow’s strike. This is the sort of abuse strike breakers have had to to put up with from their trade union affiliated colleagues, not least the General Secretary of the TSSA:

Thank you to those who crossed the picket line in the face of union aggression.

No Holidays in Socialist Venezuela

Guido’s unrivalled world news coverage brings you the news that Venezuelans have been blocked from buying flights out of the country. Spanish airline Air Europa has suspended the sale of tickets in bolivars because the country has stopped exchanging them from US dollars. Meaning holiday-makers seeking respite from their woes back home have been left stranded. In total Venezuela owes international airline companies some $2.6 billion for cash that has not been exchanged. Not forgetting Venezuelan President Maduro is the man Labour MPs told us would show “a better way is possible”. A warning that voting Ed will ruin your holiday…

Carpet-Bagging Commies of the World, Unite!

Richard Burgon is a classic example of a union-backed carpet bagger. Endorsed by Unite, the GMB, the CWU, ASLEF and UCATT, Burgon will be the candidate for anywhere that will take him, already trying and failing in Rotherham and Barnsley Central. This week, with Unite sponsoring him all the way, literally providing the free beer and sandwiches, he will host a Q&A session alongside Leeds East MP George Mudie, who he now hopes to succeed.

According to the website of the Communist Party of Britain, Burgon is a regular attendee of communist events across the North. He was the guest speaker at the annual Yorkshire Communists’ Red October meeting, which apparently consisted of “celebrations of the Russian Revolution of 1917 by declaring ‘Red October’ throughout the region”. Back in 2011, Burgon was a tutor at the self-described “Communist University of the North”, where among other things students paid homage to military dictator Fidel Castro. If he ever manages to win a selection, Burgon might just become the looniest loony left in parliament…

#BenefitsStreet Produced by Labour Supporter

The lefties and truth deniers are gearing up for another episode of Channel Four’s Benefits Street tonight with organised protests both on and offline. Labour supporters are calling it ‘Tory propaganda” and as Guido reported last week one of their activists called for the show’s producers to be killed for lifting the lid on life on James Turner Street in Birmingham where almost everyone lives on benefits. Awkwardly for the moaners one of these evil right-wing smearer is one of their own. Julia Higginbottom is a well known Brummie Labour Party supporter. The Tory stooge! 

The Detective of Baker Street

Has Norman Baker given up on his mad Dr David Kelly conspiracy theories? Guido hears that the loopy Home Office Minister has a new bugbear now he is in government. As revealed in yesterday’s Sun, Baker’s request for an extensive briefing by officials on the locations of the police and the exact angles of the bullets that killed gangster Mark Duggan were politely rebuffed last week, given that they were trying to prepare him for his appearance on Question TimeIs he planning another book?

Labour Adviser ‘Likes’ Jew-Bashing

Meet Tess Lanning, Labour Business Policy Adviser since January last year. Tess’ vast realm of expertise is not limited to the world of business; it seems she is also an expert on international relations. Among her Facebook ‘likes’ is the friendly page “The Palestine you need to know”, which offers delightful pearls of wisdom on the Israel-Palestine conflict including how “Zionist Jews beg for money”, “own the media” and why “Israel will surely be eliminated”. Guido doubts a boycott is the business policy advice Ed looking for…

8 Loony Left Over Reactions to #BenefitsStreet

And Guido’s favourite, the Liverpool Labour activist who wants to kill the producers:

The revenge of the Welfare Party.

UPDATE: With an eye on her future political career Jasmin Amelia backtracks and apologises for calling for the murder of TV producers:

Socialist Venezuela Faces “Economic Collapse”

Yesterday Guido’s unrivalled international coverage brought you the news that Miliband’s mate François Hollande was leading France into a triple dip recession. Things aren’t going so great in France, but how are they doing down in Venezuela, another of Labour’s favourite foreign allies?

This week the country has been downgraded by not one but two credit ratings agencies. Standard and Poor have cut their bond ratings blaming the “radicalisation” of Maduro’s “economic war” on the “bourgeoisie”. Now Moody’s have cut their local and foreign currency ratings, delivering a damning indictment of Venezuela’s socialist programme:

“The downgrade reflects Moody’s view that Venezuela is facing increasingly unsustainable macroeconomic imbalances, including a sky rocketing inflation and a sharp depreciation of the parallel exchange rate. As government policies have exacerbated these problems, the risk of an economic and financial collapse has greatly increased.”

In France the man Miliband said offered a “different way forward” is on the verge of a triple dip. In Venezuela the man Labour MPs told us would show “a better way is possible” is pushing his country towards economic ruin. Don’t say you weren’t warned…

Loony Labour Candidate: Don’t Criticise Kim Jong-Un

loon-newman

As the world reacts to crazy Korean dictator Kim Jong-un executing his uncle for, among other disloyalties, not clapping enough, Ed Miliband might want to have a word with his newly selected candidate for Chippenham, Wilts.

As Guido revealed in the yesterday’s Sun, Andy Newman reckons: “Britain has no moral authority to criticise North Korea.”

The barmy trade union organiser also attacked British soldiers for serving in Afghanistan, says that Stalin improved living standards and that the Berlin Wall was a success. Where do they find these people?

PCS Union Calls for Repeat of Northern Rock

This letter delivered to MPs’ offices this week is just plain weird. Claiming to be from the special few who remain at Britain’s ill-fated Socialist Party, and also representing the militant PCS trade union, their plan to “support the Co-op” is quite something:

“Here is the battle plan agreed by the PCS, the Socialist Party, the trade unions and the unemployed. If you are not yet a customer at the Co-op bank, open an account now. If you are a trade unionist, unemployed or a socialist, go to another bank’s cash point and withdraw some cash. Then take the cash and pay it into your account at your local Co-op bank. Keep doing this until queues form outside every Co-op bank. Imagine it like the scenes outside Northern Rock a few years ago. Then customers were forming massive queues to withdraw money. This time massive queues will be formed by customers trying to pay money into the bank.”

Anyone would have thought they’ve been hanging out with Rev Flowers…

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
