Crispin Blunt Comes Out For Brexit Live on Daily Politics

Crispin Blunt, chair of the Foreign Affairs select committee, comes out for Brexit live on the Daily Politics:

“My conclusion is I want a positive story and a positive role for the United Kingdom, and I think Brexit offers that option.”

By Guido’s count there are now 143 Tory MPs backing Brexit…

Cameron Willing to Risk World War 3 Over Migrant Benefit Changes

In February, Dave told the Commons that Britain would be just fine post-Brexit. He said if he didn’t get minor changes to migrant benefits he would consider leaving:

“I will never argue that Britain couldn’t survive outside the European Union… Let me say again, if we can’t secure these changes, I rule nothing out.”

Today he tells us Brexit could mean World War 3:

“The serried rows of white headstones in lovingly tended Commonwealth war cemeteries stand as silent testament to the price this country has paid to help restore peace and order in Europe. Can we be so sure that peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking? I would never be so rash as to make that assumption.”

If Cameron genuinely believes leaving risks war, why would he consider backing Brexit over some tiny changes to the benefit system? If the PM is telling the truth today, why would he have even offered this referendum? You can’t fool anyone with this tosh.

Tory For Corbyn Elected in Nuneaton

Last year Nuneaton resident Clare Golby was interviewed by the BBC as a “Labour supporter” who “voted for Jeremy Corbyn”. Since then she decided to run for the local council and today she has been elected… as a Tory! Even worse, she won her seat off Labour. #ToriesForCorbyn used to be a mischievous hashtag, now it is a route to elected office…

Top Tory Copper in MILF Porn Shocker

Paul Robinson PORN STASH

‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello, what’s going on here then? Humberside’s Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Paul Robinson used to be a Tory councillor before he landed the £45,000-a-year top cop job. At the time, fellow Tory and PCC Matthew Grove justified appointing his mate because he needed “someone who I have total trust and confidence in and who can fit this profile.” Jobs for the boys-in-blue…

As you can see above, Deputy Robinson’s Twitter ‘likes’ are bluer than a siren. The dirty perpetrator appears to have a penchant for MILF-themed porn, publicly ‘liking’ several photos of very x-rated pics. He also appears to be a fan of a dominatrix called Lady Sonia. Cuff him, boys…

Robinson has presumably committed a heterosexual version of Jack Dromey’s infamous error and forgotten his “likes” are there for all to see. Brings a new meaning to ‘roughing up the suspect’…

Gove Tops ConHome Poll Again

Gove extends his lead as ConHome readers’ favourite for next Tory leader, rising another five points this month. May also had a good month, though Boris slipped a couple of points and Osborne dropped another percentage point to just 8%. Will certainly add fuel to those Gove for deputy PM rumours…

Tory MPs Demand Labour Sacks Naz Shah

Labour are under pressure to remove the whip from Naz Shah and John McDonnell is facing calls to sack her as his PPS. This morning eight Tory MPs demanded Labour take action over her call for mass “transportation” of Israelis out of the Middle East. They tell Guido:

Mike Freer:

“She is another example of the poison that is coursing through the Labour Party. She should have the whip withdrawn and she should recuse herself from the Home Affairs inquiry into Ant-Semitism.”

David Morris:

“These posts are simply disgraceful and will upset people in all parties. Labour can’t just brush this under carpet – Naz Shah should have the whip removed immediately.”

James Cleverly:

“There is no place for anti-Semitism in politics, Jeremy Corbyn must now show he’s willing to deal with it in his party. Why has the Labour whip not been withdrawn from Naz Shah?”

Andrew Bridgen:

“If Jeremy Corbyn was serious about tackling anti-Semitism, he would put his money where his mouth is and remove the whip her from Naz Shah immediately.”

Sir Eric Pickles:

“These harmful words echo the acts of hate and intolerance we as a country have always stood against and for them to come from a Member of Parliament about to conduct an inquiry into the rise of anti-Semitism is outrageous. I would urge Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to take immediate action.”

Michael Fabricant:

“Naz Shah has appeared to have out done George Galloway in sheer spite and loathing.  Her sitting on a Home Office inquiry into antisemitism means she will bring her own personal expertise to the Committee. If it weren’t so tragic, it would be laughable.”

Oliver Dowden:

“It is completely unacceptable for anyone to use phrases like “transportation” and “solution” when it comes to Israel. Labour’s Naz Shah must know the dark historic significance they have for Jewish people. The Home Affairs Select Committee on which she sits is to conduct an inquiry into the rise of anti-Semitism; this raises serious questions about her fitness for it.”

Suella Fernandes:

“In light of these comments, it is entirely inappropriate for Naz Shah to remain on the Home Affairs Select Committee. How can an inquiry into anti-Semitism be taken seriously if it is conducted by someone who has expressed these disgusting views.”

Labour MPs are comparing her to Eichmann. So far McDonnell and Labour have said nothing…

T-May Blasts “Nonsense” Remain Scaremongering

Theresa May has blasted Remain campaign scaremongering as “nonsense“, admitting “of course” Britain could cope outside the EU:

“I want to deal with several arguments that should not count. The first is that in the 21st century Britain is too small a country to cope outside the European Union. That’s nonsense. We’re the fifth biggest economy in the world, we’re growing faster than any economy in the G7, we attract nearly a fifth of all foreign investment in the EU, we have a military capable of projecting its power around the world, intelligence services that are second to none, and friendships and alliances that go far beyond Europe. We have the greatest soft power in the world, we sit in exactly the right timezone for global trade and our language is the world’s language. Of course Britain could cope outside the European Union.”

And here is the killer line on what remaining in the EU means for immigration:

“Free movement rules mean it’s harder to control the volume of European immigration, and that is clearly no good thing.”

A more honest approach from T-May compared with some of her Remain colleagues…

Boris is Right: White House Did Return Churchill Bust

Boris is coming in for heavy criticism for writing that a bust of Winston Churchill was removed from the White House and returned to the British embassy when Obama took office. Sky News’ Faisal Islam reports that Boris’ claim is “not true”, the Guardian say it has been “debunked”. They point to this White House statement and photo from 2012 showing Obama and Cameron inspecting a Churchill bust in the private residence of the White House, outside the Treaty room:

Yet that statement was pure spin…

As the Telegraph revealed four years ago, there were originally two matching busts of Churchill by Jacob Epstein in the White House. The one referred to in the White House statement does indeed remain in place. Yet when Obama took over from Bush, the second bust was moved to the residence of Sir Peter Westmacott, who was then Britain’s ambassador to the US. The White House were forced to admit that they had indeed returned the bust. Boris is proven right…

UPDATE: The British Embassy claim it was Obama’s decision:

“It was lent for the first term of office of President Bush. When the President was elected for his second and final term, the loan was extended until January 2009. The new President has decided not to continue this loan.”

UPDATE II: Obama just confirmed at the joint press conference with Camaeron that it was his decision to remove the Oval Office Churchill bust and replace it with one of Martin Luther King. Yet in 2012 White House comms director Dan Pfieffer insisted:

“The bust that was returned as a matter of course with all the other artwork that had been loaned to President Bush for display in his Oval Office and not something that President Obama or his Administration chose to do”

Obama has just exposed his spinner telling a straight lie…
