Through The Keyhole: Lansman’s £1.5 Million Pad

lansman flat exterior

Guido readers will remember that People’s Momentum chief Jon Lansman runs the grassroots Corbynista group from a million pound luxury riverside apartment at Shad Thames. But where did the Bennite previously reside? This is Lansman’s former four-storey property in Shoreditch, which sold for £1,525,000 in April last year. Making a profit of £800,000…

The veteran Corbyn campaigner’s pad, which went for nearly triple the average London house price, featured three bedrooms and two spacious reception rooms across nearly 1,800 square feet of prime Shoreditch real estate:

His impressive bookshelf includes books on Lenin, Stalin and almost an entire shelf devoted to Tony Benn:

The trendy magazine rack is stacked full with copies of the New Statesman and Tribune:

Pride of place in Lansman’s living room is a statue of Karl Marx, in Corbynista-red:

And of course there is well stocked wine cellar:

Gerry Downing Compares Labour Friends of Israel to Goebbels in Appeal to NEC

Expelled Labour mentalist Gerry Downing has written a 4,923 word appeal to Labour’s NEC asking them to reinstate him into the party, again. Some highlights include an attached photo of a book titled “The Jewish Question” and the claim that Labour Friends of Israel is “a prime example of a technique pioneered by the Nazis; Goebbels’ technique of the Big Lie”. Intriguingly, Downing also reveals that:

“Previously the appeal body (NEC Panel) decided that support for Socialist Fight, the Marxist publication and trend that I support, was compatible with membership of the Labour Party, since it has never stood in elections against Labour in the past and had no intention of doing so in the future… I openly stated my revolutionary socialist beliefs in the original Twitter profile that was the basis for my original expulsion, and did not in any way disavow those beliefs in making my original appeal – in fact I reiterated them. My revolutionary Trotskyist views were taken into account by those who granted the appeal and all my political positions were available to them.”

According to Downing, Labour’s NEC told him Trotskyists are welcome…

Labour PCC Candidate Calls Cops on Vicki Kirby

Race row Vicki Kirby has been referred to the police by Labour Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Kevin McKeever. He says:

Labour Members Cut Up Membership Cards

Labour MP Wes Streeting speaks to Iain Dale about the Vicki Kirby race row on LBC:

“Today I’ve had messages from party members who have cut up their membership cards… I’ve had constituents write to me asking: ‘what on Earth is going on? Is there still a place for Jews in the Labour party?’ I think Jeremy really does need to be proactive at this stage. I think he’s got to now stamp on it… I’m actually in Berlin at the moment at an international conference tackling antisemitism. It feels pretty embarrassing being a British Labour MP at this conference given what seems to be a pretty poor approach to tackling antisemitism ourselves.”

As of 7pm tonight Kirby is still a Labour members and still the vice chair of the Woking Labour Party…

New Evidence Emerges: “ISIS 100% CIA Operation”

Vicki Kirby’s boyfriend Barry Faulkner is the chair of Woking Labour. His Facebook posts give an insight into what the couple discuss over the dinner table. In one post, made after Kirby’s suspension from the Labour Party, Faulkner sends her a link to a video titled “ISIS exposed 100% as CIA operation”, commenting “worth a look at some of this Vicki Kirby”.

In another post to his girlfriend, who is also known as Vicky McCluskey, the chair of Woking Labour jokes that she shouldn’t comment on a news article about plans to tackle online anti-Semites:

Faulkner and Kirby – the chair and vice-chair of Woking Labour – have been publicly sharing content suggesting ISIS is a CIA conspiracy and joking about their own anti-Semitism. Crucially, this happened after Kirby was suspended by Labour, so can be seen as “new evidence”. Will they act against Faulkner, a CLP chair, and his girlfriend?

Full Extent of Vicki Kirby’s Rehabilitation Into Labour

One picture that shows the extent of Vicki Kirby’s rehabilitation into the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn. A Labour spokesman says:

“Vicky Kirby was suspended from the Labour Party following comments on social media in 2014. Following her resignation as a Parliamentary candidate she received a warning from the NEC on her future conduct and the suspension was then lifted. If new evidence comes to light, the Labour Party will review that evidence and make sure the rules of the Party are upheld.”

A statement which will provoke more outrage – Labour admit they were aware of these tweets and yet still welcomed Kirby back into the party…

Vicki Kirby on “Jews”

Two hours since Guido asked Labour’s press office what they were going to do about Vicki Kirby, they still haven’t got back to us. Above are the reinstated Woking Labour candidate’s views on Jews with “big noses”, and how “Jews… slaughter the oppressed”. Under Miliband’s leadership Kirby was kicked out within hours. Will Corbyn show similar zero tolerance?

Kinnock Blasts Miliband For Enabling Entryism

Stephen Kinnock has confided in colleagues in the Commons tea room his belief that Ed Miliband is responsible for destroying his father’s efforts to root out militant entryists. Kinnock Jnr is said to have bemoaned:

“All the work my father did in twenty years, Ed Miliband undid in one weekend.”

A reference to the special conference back in March 2014, where Miliband approved measures to implement a one man, one vote system for future leadership elections. The catalyst for a chain of events which ultimately allowed Corbyn to become leader, and militant Trots to come in from the cold…

UPDATE: Kinnock junior gets in touch.

Gerry Downing Re-Excluded From Labour Party

“Following further evidence that has come to light, Gerry Downing has now been excluded from the Labour Party by the NEC panel.”

Gerry Downing: ‘We Must Address the Jewish Question’

Jeremy Corbyn still hasn’t commented on the readmission to the Labour Party of 9/11 apologist Gerry Downing. Perhaps he will after he reads this.

McDonnell Pals With 9/11 Apologist

Why did Labour’s Corbynista-controlled NEC accept Gerry Downing’s appeal and let the 9/11 apologist back into the party? Surely nothing to do with the fact he is chums with John McDonnell. Watch as McDonnell and Downing laugh together and rant about “militant” strike action on a panel three years ago:

Downing has written extensively about his Trotskyite views and his justification for terrorism for years. […]

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
