Berger’s Climate Change Whopper

“David Cameron hasn’t spoken about climate change for three years” screeches the headline of Luciana Berger’s particularly weak piece for the Staggers today. Just the one problem: she is talking complete rubbish. Obviously a quick Google of “David Cameron climate change” was beyond poor old Luciana, so Guido thought he would help her out. According to They Work For You it turns out Dave has mentioned climate change 32 times in Hansard over the last three years. Hopefully Luciana will learn the lesson of getting your headline right. Rather than chasing headlines and forgetting facts…

Labour Suspend Dissident Councillor

20 year-old Jake Morrison’s last ditch plea to Miliband to save his position in the party has fallen on deaf ears. Luciana Berger’s attempt to purge him yesterday has been successful:

It does seem particularly unfair that a young councillor just beginning his career in politics, who has given his life to the party, should be knifed merely because he had the temerity to stand up for himself rather than toe the party line. Even more so considering he was forced out by Berger, when surely a councillor should be accountable to his voters rather than his local MP. Dissenters have been warned…

Berger Boots Out Arnie Graf Rebel

berger

Liverpool’s youngest ever councillor Jake Morrison claims Luciana Berger has forced him out after he failed to attend a training session with Miliband’s new American campaigning guru Arnie Graf and collect a copy of “a very comprehensive agreed script” of the party line. He says in a letter to Ed“Luciana, a privately educated MP from London, who has came to Liverpool and made my life unbearable. At every opportunity Luciana has undermined me, rather than supported”. You can see why:

Dear Jake

I understand from your tweets that you have been knocking on members’ doors. As you will be aware from the many emails that Sheila has sent you, and which you have sadly ignored, we have had a training session with Arnie Graf from which the Wavertree CLP Members’ ID scheme was launched, and we now have a very comprehensive agreed script and process. Indeed we went out on Tuesday with an Old Swan councillor to start the activity off, and which was very successful.

You have not replied to any of the emails confirming your availability for the summer campaign which includes member engagement. You have not visited the office to collect a copy of the script, which includes a list of all the forthcoming CLP events which we are inviting members to. You have not engaged with the constituency in some time and have chosen not to discuss your facebook/twitter resignation announcement with either the officers of the CLP, branch, your co councillor or indeed myself. 

Of the 14 Labour councillors in the Wavertree Constituency you are the only one who chooses not to engage with my office, or get involved with our constituency activities. I have also had a number of complaints raised with me about your behaviour and action with regard to the Heygreen school going into special measures and the MANWEB field.

I am copying in Joe and Alan Dean by way of a formal complaint about your behaviour and your complete lack of team work and respect for other members.

I would appreciate a response

Luciana Berger

One man standing up to Arnie Graf’s wishy washy rhetoric knifed by the party machine. Save the Liverpool Wavertree one…

Overnight News

In these austere times we can always rely on Derek Draper to show solidarity with the workers:

His close friend Gloria was showing a bit of leg:

Love is in the air according to a co-conspirator propping up the conference bar in the Jury’s Inn Hotel.

“Luciana and Chuka arrived hand in hand at the bar at Jury’s very late last night and were all over each other. It maybe back on.”

The beautiful people back together, Guido loves a happy ending…

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
