Disingenuous Left Dog-Whistled Chuka Rumours

Last Sunday Chuka thrust his hitherto secret girlfriend into the public eye, at best it was naive, at worst it was a cynical ploy. While Chuka is blaming the evil press for being mean, he might want to have a look at what the lefties have been up to. Namely their pushing of rumours about his sexuality…

On Wednesday the union funded propaganda blog Political Scrapbook amplified a minor mention of Chuka on a niche Tory website, making sure it was seen by Labour leadership watchers:

They even added the words: ‘nudge nudge, wink wink’. In criticising a ‘dog whistle attack’ they made sure it was seen by many, many more people…

And the disingenuous left have not stopped there. Today there was a very, very clunky tweet from Owen Jones:

See what he did there? Chuka is from exactly the wing of the Labour Party that Owen wants to kill off. A kind word here, a double entendre there…

Stewart ‘Truth Bullets’ Jackson’s Acceptance Speech

You probably missed this at the time, but Tory MP Stewart Jackson’s acceptance speech in Peterborough is well worth a watch. Even after they lost a very dirty campaign, the Labour activists at the count were booing:

‘It’s hard to be gracious’ after what they put me through he later told the BBC.

Smear Test: Labour Trident Wriggle Room

Outraged! They are outraged! It’s all a smear! Someone mentioned the fact that Ed Miliband knifed his brother and broke his mother’s heart and Labour are feigning outrage – you hear far worse from Blairites. Leaving the hysteria aside, Labour have actually left themselves some considerable wriggle room on Trident. In between their cries of anguish…

This morning the soon-to-be peer Douglas Alexander denied that Trident was on the table for any future SNP negotiation, but then left the door open to just that:

‘Now the experts say that requires 4 submarines, we’ll review that’

Presumably they will be able to find some more “independent experts” to support their chosen view, just as they did during yesterday’s NonDominishambles, where they managed to produce just one name. A Labour member who admitted he wasn’t an economist, and then borked his own numbers. 

Of course there is a compelling post-Cold War case for scrapping Trident.

But Guido would not recommend Labour citing this particular expert

Smear and Loathing in SW7

A colleague of Victoria Borwick, the current favourite to be the next Tory MP for Kensington, denies being behind an attempt to smear a rival candidate. The rumour was put about to the media yesterday – in writing – that “George Osborne’s private office” was calling up Kensington members to pressurise them to back No. 10 Special Adviser Laura Trott. N0. 11 sources deny outright that any such calls were made.

Apparently: “The call was pretty high pressure, and when I said I wanted a local candidate not some advisor I’d never heard of I was told quite clearly that “the Chancellor needs Laura in parliament.” It’s bad form, and I don’t think many members in Kensington are going to put up with it.”

It was said to have been a woman: “she said she’s from ‘the Chancellor’s office’. I felt very pressured and like I wasn’t allowed to disagree with her.”

When Guido put it to Borwick’s people, they simply said “Victoria doesn’t want to comment.”

We report, you decide.
