Loony LibDem Candidate Boycotts BBC Over Gaza

Where do the LibDems find ‘em? The party’s ambitious candidate to be Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands, who was given a glowing reference on LibDemVoice just a few weeks ago, is something of a wannabe David Ward. Ayoub Khan has shown his campaigning genius by boycotting the BBC over their “biased” coverage of Gaza:

FROM: Ayoub Khan
TO: Kathryn Stanczyszyn
11 August 2014

Whilst it is in the interest of any candidate to promote themselves and attract voter support on mainstream media, particularly in a by-election, I have decided not to do this with the BBC because their broadcasting of the Gaza situation has been biased. One has to live with ones own conscience and I refuse to participate with organisations such as the BBC who in the view of so many, have acted in such an unfair manner.

Barrister Khan’s other credentials include being accused of lying in court, while on his website he modestly says: “Some people call me a hero, but I just did what anyone would do.” You have to wonder what BBC journalists risking risking their lives in Gaza think about being called Israeli propagandists by armchair activists back in Britain…

Welsh First Minister Embroiled in ‘Malvinas’ Row

Slow clap for the Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones, who for some reason thought it would be a good idea to get pally with loony tune Argentinian ambassador Alicia Castro this week. Predictably, the Argies wanted to score points about the Falklands. Less predictably, Jones went along with it. This is from the press release sent out by the Argentinian embassy after the meeting with a chirpy-looking Carwyn:

“Alicia Castro praised the integration of the Welsh community in Argentina as an example of the hospitality that Argentina affords British descendents, which refutes the propaganda from a sector of the Malvinas Islands’ inhabitants portraying Argentina as hostile, in an attempt to justify the UK government’s refusal to resolve the sovereignty dispute.”

Wonder how well this will go down with the Welsh Guards and survivors of the Sir Galahad bombing, which saw 48 men killed in an Argentinian attack…

WATCH: Galloway Rants About Banning Israelis From Bradford

This is a video of George Galloway, the MP for Bradford West, at a Respect Party meeting in Leeds at the weekend:

“We have declared Bradford an Israel free zone. We don’t want any Israeli goods. We don’t want any Israeli services. We don’t want any Israeli academics, coming to the university or the college. We don’t even want any Israeli tourists to come to Bradford if any of them had thought of doing so. We reject this illegal, barbarous, savage state that calls itself Israel. And you have to do the same.”

Not exactly going to be thousands of Israelis making last minute changes to their summer holiday plans, but still…

Loony Left Coming For Evil Thomas the Tank Engine

Well this is just about the best thing that Comment is Free have ever published. For reasons such as ‘classism, sexism, anti-environmentalism bordering on racism’, kids must be weaned off of the evil that is Thomas the Tank Engine:

“For one, these trains perform tasks dictated by their imperious, little white boss, Sir Topham Hatt (also known as The Fat Controller), whose attire of a top hat, tuxedo and big round belly is just a little too obvious. Basically, he’s the Monopoly dictator of their funky little island.”

“For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they areall pumping out smoke – it’s not hard to make the leap into the race territory.”

It’s not white smoke you numpty, it’s steam. They are steam engines. Little racist steam engines. Give me strength…

Loony Labour MP Compares Israel-Palestine to Genocide, Again

Earlier this year loony Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi was forced to apologise, albeit very begrudgingly, for comparing Israeli policy to the Holocaust. Today Qureshi has shown just how much she learned her lesson by again comparing Israeli actions with a genocide. She says in a blog on her website:

“It is ironic that on the very day we are reflecting on lessons from Srebrenica we are overwhelmed by scenes of carnage in Gaza as the Humanitarian crisis continues to deepen.”

On the 19th anniversary of the massacre of 8,000 people at Srebrenica, that’s a pretty offensive comparison even by Qureshi’s standards…

Greens Sack Councillor Who Called War Heroes “Hired Killers”

Two weeks ago Green councillor Ben Duncan put in his application to be consigned to the dustbin of loony tunes who have thrown their careers away on the internet. Today, his party has finally obliged and booted him out. Lisa Murray, chairwoman of Brighton and Hove Green Party, says:

“The panel of inquiry has concluded that Councillor Ben Duncan should no longer serve as a member of the Green Group of Councillors on Brighton and Hove City Council.

This follows his recent statement on Twitter concerning the armed forces which understandably offended many both within and outside the party.

The panel concluded that since this recent incident follows a history of making comments in social media that many would view as inappropriate for someone in such a position, taken as a whole, Councillor Duncan’s actions amount to a breach of standards and judgement expected of a Green councillor, bringing himself and colleagues into disrepute.

Councillor Duncan’s removal from the Green Group is for the remaining council term.

From this point Councillor Duncan will not participate in votes or discussions in the Green Group or be involved in any decisions of the Group and will sit as an independent councillor and not be counted as a part of the Group.”

Bye!

Stay CLASS-y: Wife-Beater Tells Labour to Put Up Taxes

The Unite front group CLASS, despite their own gender failings, is devoted to furthering equal rights and women’s causes. So Guido was surprised to see them happily embrace such a controversial figure this afternoon.

Funnily enough the very left wing, but not right on, ‘think tank’ failed to ask Thomas Piketty about the time he assaulted his girlfriend:

‘After the charges were dropped, the French news agency AFP quoted a source close to Ms Filippetti as saying: “Mr Piketty has acknowledged the facts of the violence against Ms Filippetti and has apologised, so in the interests of the families and children, she did not proceed.” When the allegations re-surfaced in the media at the weekend, Mr Piketty confirmed that he had been arrested but contested the claims.’

Instead MPs and activists lapped up the discredited Frenchman’s thoughts on why the 50% rate of tax is not high enough. That’s right, Labour are spending one of their precious few days before the next election discussing putting taxes up with an economist who beat up his ex-girlfriend.

Loony Labour MP’s Trojan Horse Tweet Mystery

Yasmin Qureshi, the Labour MP who earlier this year was forced to make a grovelling apology for comparing the Israel-Palestine conflict to the Holocaust, is in trouble for her extreme views once again. Yesterday, as the damning Ofsted evidence of Islamic extremism in Birmingham schools was starting to become clear, Qureshi tweeted that the story was a “witch hunt”. Today, the following tweet about Oldknow Academy’s school trips to Saudi Arabia, on which the Ofsted report found that non-Muslim pupils were banned from going, has mysteriously disappeared from her timeline:

Curiouser and curiouser…

Oxfam Reported to Charity Commission

Tory MP Conor Burns is off on one over the latest tedious Oxfam campaign, reporting the international poverty charity to the Charity Commission for their nakedly political, domestic trolling today:

To be honest, this is probably what they wanted – going down the shock PR route so loved by Save the Children and the green lobby. Who cares what the statistics show when you’ve got photoshop?

When Oxfam is not swanning around Davos, pouring charitable giving down the drain, they are resorting to cheap electioneering. Whatever happened to actual poverty?

Pity to see such a once respected charitable brand sell out.
