Presumably part of a Zionist conspiracy.

“I am delighted to announce that the CWU will be backing Jeremy Corbyn MP to be the next leader of the Labour Party.
There are no quick fixes for the Labour party, but there are some easy decisions and choosing Jeremy as its leader should be one of them.
We think that it is time for a change for Labour. The grip of the Blairites and individuals like Peter Mandelson must now be loosened once and for all. There is a virus within the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn is the antidote.
We reject the notion that Labour needs to move to the centre ground of British politics. The Centre ground has moved significantly to the right in recent years. We do not see arguing for fairer wealth distribution, decent jobs with good pay, terms and conditions and a substantial increase in affordable housing for the next generation as a left wing agenda.
Jeremy agrees with the vast amount of CWU policy, ranging from opposing the selling off of Royal Mail, to offering a real alternative to austerity, and repealing anti-trade union laws.”
At Sunday’s ‘Stand Up For Jeremy Corbyn’ rally in Covent Garden, one of the speakers claimed that Britain “isn’t a country that is worth defending”:
Full context for the loony left defenders here:
The crowd of Corbynistas erupted into cheers. So, what does their leader make of that?
Corbyn refuses to distance himself from the comments:
“It was a fundraising event with a number of comedy slots, and that was one of them! If I didn’t think standing up for people and their standards of living and their basic, real securities was worthwhile then I wouldn’t be standing for leader of the Labour Party.”
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 in the last month. As food shortages engulf the socialist paradise, producers of milk, pasta, oil, rice, sugar and flour have been ordered to hand over as much as 100% of their produce to nationalised supermarkets. How is Maduro trying to boost his popularity? By making thinly veiled military threats to neighbouring Guyana.
Not that you’ll find any of that on Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign website. “Success for radical policies in Venezuela is being achieved by providing for the poorest, liberating resources, but above all by popular education and involvement,” Jezza writes among his pitch for the leadership. Only last month he attended a rally calling for “solidarity” with the Maduro regime. Hala Jez!
The London Assembly’s crack “Economy Committee” have today released their hotly anticipated report “Weathering the Storm: The Impact of Climate Change on London’s Economy” and it makes for a cracking read. Stunning revelations in the report include:
According to the Committee, this means London’s economy will be devastated by the coming “flooding, drought, heatwaves“. Unless of course companies kneecap themselves by buying in advise from the “adaptation sector“. This kind of hyperbolic eco-alarmism and scaremongering from the likes of the Green Party’s Jenny Jones is why London needs a mayor who will stand up to the anti-capitalists who use the cover of environmentalism to advance their extremist agenda…
Cooper says that last night’s poll proves that only she can beat Corbyn, when it fact it says the complete opposite:
“This doesn’t reflect our internal data and significantly understates the huge number of members and supporters giving Yvette their first preference. However, what it does show is that Yvette is now the only candidate who can win the leadership election and then reach out to the wider electorate to win the general election in 2020. We won’t do that by shifting a narrow party further to the left or by returning to the dismal days of the 1980s, with internal party warfare and almost two decades of Opposition. Party members know that to change the country, we need to deliver a Labour government. Yvette is the only candidate who can both win support across the Party but take the fight to the Tories as a credible Labour Prime Minister.”
Burnham supporters also suggest that their own canvass data shows Corbyn is ‘doing well, but not that well’. This piece of spin is lamentable though:
So if you change the rules, their boy will win. Riiiight…
Entries in the comments…
Burnham’s online ‘Fandies‘ are deserting the Labour ‘frontrunner’ for Jeremy Corbyn after last night’s cynical, opportunistic welfare vote positioning:
He’s lost the battle, will he lose the war?
UPDATE: Corbyn’s odds have improved overnight:
