Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week: Andrew Pierce v Owen Jones

Two MediaGuido Twitter bitch fight regulars are reaching for their saucers of milk this afternoon.

Andrew Pierce and Owen Jones have fallen out again, this time over Nigel Evans.

Andrew Pierce accuses Owen Jones of lying.

Who to believe?

Is what one of them says in public is not quite the same as what he says in private. Is one of them lying? They can’t both be telling the truth. Who?

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…

Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week: Mensch v Jones

Owen Jones reckons there has been a “Hopkinsisation” of political discourse, as he struggles to come to terms with people being closer to Katie Hopkins on welfare reform than him. Actually, the Guidoisation of politics has been taking place for ten years now.

On that subject, scourge of lefty twitterati Louise Mensch has come up with the most offensive thing anyone can say to get under Owen’s skin:

1-0 Mensch. 

You win some you lose though, judging by this earlier discussion on MPs’ deselections:

Easy mistake to make…

Last Person to Leave Venezuela Please Turn Out the Lights

Over in free and prosperous Venezuela last night, moderate and reasonable President Maduro addressed the nation on television. As he laid out his socialist vision of glorious revolution and the bright red future, large swathes of the country were plunged into darkness as crippling power cuts took out its oil refineries.

No doubt Owen Jones is standing by to observe how everything is fine.

Price caps work then, do they?

Loony Lefties Silent on Venezuelan Tyranny

Readers will remember how Hugo Chavez fanboy Owen Jones flew to Venezuela with Diane Abbott to oversee his re-election, all paid for by the socialist regime of course. Impartial observer Owen was just the man to make sure the elections were free and fair:

“Hugo Chavez was a democrat, not a dictator, and showed a progressive alternative to neo-liberalism is both possible and popular.”

Now the serial human rights abuser is dead, Nicolas Maduro, his chosen successor, is in charge and Diane is a big fan:

Well this week Maduro passed an Enabling Act permitting him to govern by decree, then announced that “we have more than 100 of the bourgeoisie behind bars at the moment”, as part of an “economic war”. As socialist Venezuela descends into tyranny, Owen Jones and Diane Abbott have gone rather quiet.

When Owen Jones Met Red Len

Of course Owen Jones is definitely not a union lobbyist. He’s far too busy writing his book to get involved in that unfortunate business any more. After all it was only a bit of “public policy work” that he used to do for the union-funded CLASS think tank anyway. Yet now he doesn’t have the time for all that. Who should Owen be spotted with in Portcullis House this afternoon? One Len McCluskey…

What Owen Jones and Len McCluskey Don’t Tell You:
Unite Don’t Represent Majority of their Members Politically

Unite’s leaked May 2013 internal political report to the union’s powerful Executive Council written by the union’s political director emphasises that Unite’s priority is to get a majority of its membership in marginal constituencies to vote Labour. Unite’s own research (see page 5) reveals that only a minority of around 37.5% of the membership vote Labour. A figure in line with national polling…

unite-represent

So when Owen Jones and Len McCluskey claim that Unite represents a political voice for “millions” of its members, it is not completely true. Unite gives political support to the Labour Party whereas most Unite members – according to Unite’s own research – don’t support the Labour Party. McCluskey and his media-friendly paid lobbyist Owen Jones are a small left-wing clique who have got control of the union because most members are apathetic. As evidenced by the fact McCluskey won Unite’s leadership having received only 144,570 votes yet claims to have a “two million strong” union. That if true would make Red Len supported by a mere 7.3% of his members.

owenx480In reality most people join a union to obtain organised represention for themselves in the workplace and primarily in order to have someone to negotiate on bread and butter issues like pay and conditions. They vote on national issues. They certainly don’t join the union to bring about the Marxist wet-dreams of Owen Jones…

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
