Labour Friends of Venezuela Endorse Tyrant Maduro
Praises Violent Regime as “Progressive”, Dismisses Protesters

Labour Friends of Venezuela, a group backed by Labour MPs Diane Abbott and Grahame Morris, has today come out in support of the country’s violent President Nicolas Maduro. Despite the arrest of Venezuela’s opposition leader, the killing of protesters and expulsion of foreign journalists, the group’s loony chair and former Labour MP Colin Burgon spins:

“This ongoing majority support for Venezuela’s progressive, elected government that has driven this current wave of anti-democratic, right-wing violence in the country. This has been initiated by an element of Venezuela’s right-wing opposition that has grown frustrated with its own repeated electoral failings.

The current violence from elements of the right-wing stems from the announcement in January of a strategy of opposition protest leaders for the La Salida (The Ousting) of the government of President Maduro before his constitutional mandate ends in 2019… In contrast, the government has repeatedly condemned all violence and called for peace and talks with the opposition.”

An analysis completely rejected by numerous human rights organisations in the past few weeks. That “progressive” socialist government which he says has “condemned all violence” is in truth killing protesters in the street. Does Labour support the position of this vile affiliated group?

Free Speech Campaigners Slam Labour’s Venezuela Hypocrisy

The likes of Diane Abbott, Owen Jones, Grahame Morris et al are the first to speak up about human rights abuses committed by allies of western governments. Freedom of speech campaign group Index on Censorship has condemned those same Labour loonies for their double standards of refusing to condemn the state sponsored violence in socialist Venezuela:

“The point of universal rights is that they are universal. It’s not a credible position to condemn the violence and rights violations of regimes you dislike and then to stay silent on the same actions carried out by people whose politics you support.”

For shame…

Labour MP Uses McAlpine to Gag Venezuela Critics

Loony pro-Chavez Labour MP Grahame Morris (above centre) is getting very tetchy this afternoon, threatening to sue anyone criticising him for his stance on the country and comparing himself to Lord McAlpine:

Go back to March last year, before Maduro ordered the arrest of the opposition leader and Venezuela descended into state sponsored violence, and Morris was full of praise for the tyrant responsible:

Still the likes of Morris, Owen Jones and Diane Abbott refuse to condemn the violence…

Labour’s Venezuelan Ally Seeks Arrest of Opposition Leader
Blocks Twitter, Locks Up Protesters, Three Killed

Guido’s international coverage brings you the latest from Venezuela. Socialist President Maduro, lauded by Labour MPs as proof “a better way is possible” when he came to power, is embroiled in crisis as thousands of anti-government protesters demand his resignation. In his latest subversion of democracy, Maduro last week issued a warrant for the arrest of the country’s opposition leader, ordering a huge police manhunt and raiding his house and the home of his parents. 100 student protesters were arrested by government forces in Caracas and three people were shot dead, with eyewitness reports blaming government sponsored armed motorcycle gangs. Twitter has confirmed that the Venezuelan government is blocking accounts and images posted of the protests.

Back in Britain, the Labour MPs who shilled for Maduro refuse to condemn him…

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…

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
