“Save Jez” Supporters Demand “100 New MPs”

Corbyn supporters have besieged Labour MPs in Parliament, with an ongoing protest in Parliament Square attempting to save Jez. Speaking at the event was a particularly fuming Paul Mason, formerly of Channel 4 News:

“We need 100 potential new MPs from all these young people, all these women, all these members of ethnic minority groups, disabled people, gay people. Get some people in there who suffer the hardships of working class life, not the hardship of having your career blighted by not being able to do your job properly.”

Save Jeremy – get down to Parliament Square now!

IPSO: Coke Probably Was Snorted at Momentum Party

Back in December the Sun sent a bearded undercover reporter to a People’s Momentum Christmas party in Brixton, armed with specialist detection wipes and a handful of swabs. The science didn’t lie – traces of gak were found in the loos and the story made its way into the paper. Well, someone from Momentum decided to complain to the press regulator IPSO. The judgement is in, and they’ve ruled a Momentum reveller probably did consult the member for Tooting…

“The committee acknowledged that the test used by the newspaper could not conclusively show that drugs were taken by an attendee at the party that night. However, the manager of the pub had said that the toilets had been cleaned before the party, the only attendees present in the venue that night were attending the Momentum event, and traces of drugs had been detected. This was a reasonable basis to infer that drugs had been used by an attendee. In these circumstances, the committee was satisfied that the newspaper had not failed to take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information. There was no breach of Clause 1. The complaint was not upheld.”

Momentum Prioritise Controlling Labour Over Campaigning For Labour

A survey sent out by Momentum today asked supporters to choose three issues the Corbynista group should campaign on over the next three months. Among the options are the euphemistic concept of “democratising Labour”“promoting candidates within Labour who support Momentum’s objectives”, and the slightly sinister “providing political and economic education”. Not on the list at all: campaigning for Labour in upcoming elections or campaigning on the EU referendum. Revealing priorities, comrades…

Jez and John Strained Over “Succession Plan”

Allies of Jeremy Corbyn note that John McDonnell has been cosying up to Momentum, cultivating suspicions that the Shadow Chancellor is working on a secret “succession plan”. The “People’s Momentum” is the grassroots Corbyn campaign base, though McDonnell’s involvement with the group has ramped up in recent weeks. It has not gone unnoticed that McDonnell has begun travelling to Momentum meetings across the country, with increasing regularity. He attended Momentum’s East Midlands conference at the beginning of March, hugely impressing the 400-strong audience in Corbyn’s absence. He attended another Momentum event at Labour’s Llandudno conference last month. And he has also taken a keen interest in Thurrock Momentum, where they are currently pressuring the Labour-controlled council to pass an illegal budget. Corbyn does not want this to happen, yet McDonnell has been urging them on.

While the two men remain close, multiple Labour sources say the relationship has strained over speculation that McDonnell covets the leadership. Momentum’s supporters will be a crucial demographic in any future leadership contest, so it isn’t a coincidence that McDonnell is trying to boost his personal standing with them. Corbyn however has absolutely no intention of agreeing to any form of coronation whereby McDonnell takes over to fight the election. Jezza fully expects to still be leader in 2020. Momentum sources insist there is no evidence of any split or attempt to build a separate base. They suggest they are seeing more of John simply because he has more spare time than Jez. A Labour leader and his chancellor falling out over a succession plan, who’d have thought it…

Momentum Campaigning Hard For Khan

Sadiq has spent the last few months publicly distancing himself from Team Corbyn for electoral reasons, yet the actual evidence shows the opposite is true. Last weekend the far-left Corbynista group People’s Momentum held a “Khanpaigning” event in the capital, followed by a ‘Jez We Khan’ party hosted by Owen Jones and top Corbynista MP Clive Lewis. Tonight Momentum are hitting the phones for Sadiq at his Westminster HQ:

This all comes as Momentum are hit by new allegations of targeting moderate Labour MPs, and they’ve even been embroiled in a race row with Chuka Umunna this afternoon. Remember all this when Sadiq next says he’s not that close to Jezza…

Through The Keyhole: Lansman’s £1.5 Million Pad

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:

“Moderate” Eddie Izzard v Momentum For Labour’s NEC

Eddie Izzard Edit

Not content with giving the lipstick kiss of death to the euro, Ken, Gordon, Yes to AV, Miliband and Burnham, Eddie Izzard is running for Labour’s NEC. They’re a bunch of comedians…

The Staggers reports Eddie will be the moderate candidate fighting the far-left Momentum slate:

The entry of Izzard into the race will come as a blow to the Grassroots Alliance, the left slate backed by Momentum… [Izzard] describes himself as a “radical moderate. I do radical things with a  moderate message”.

Like the Iran-Iraq war, it’s a pity they can’t both lose.

Momentum Chief Doesn’t Rule Out “Violent Revolution”

Michael Chessum is one of the eight members of Momentum’s steering committee, so he is a key figure in the Corbynista campaign group. A leader of the 2010 student protests, Chessum infamously said “I don’t think I’m going to wade in and condemn violence from protesters”. Guido has come across this video of him speaking two years later, where he tells a room of left-wing activists:

“Do I believe in violent revolution? The answer is very simply, I don’t know.”

When the voters reject Corbyn, one top Momentum figure doesn’t rule out tooling up…

LEAK: Lansman Emails Mock “Clueless” Unite Chief

On Saturday Momentum’s 52 person National Committee convened for the first time, telling supporters that the purpose of the meeting was to elect a Steering Committee of 14 senior figures who will run the organisation.

Momentum Members Target Chuka

THREAT

A must-read undercover account of a Momentum meeting in Lambeth by Conservative Home’s Mark Wallace this afternoon. Momentum members shared leaflets calling for “a vote of no confidence in Chuka Umunna”, activists sought signatures for a petiton “against Chuka” and one member demanded to know from the chief Momentum organiser: “What are you going to do about Umunna?” “That’s a very good question,” she replied.[…]
