Caroline Lucas Quits Stop the War

This morning Guido was alerted that Caroline Lucas’ name had been removed from the Stop the War Coalition’s website. She had been Stop the War’s vice-president and was seen as the acceptable face of the west-hating group. Guido put the call in to her spokesman, who initially refused to answer whether she had quit. It is now confirmed.

Her office say in a statement to Guido:

“Caroline stepped back from the Stop the War Coalition a few weeks ago. Her busy parliamentary and constituency schedule means that she doesn’t have time to fully engage with the role of a Patron and, in light of some recent StWC positions that she didn’t support, she felt standing down was the responsible thing to do. Like the Stop the War Coalition, Caroline is opposed to British bombing in Syria because it will neither keep Britain safe nor help bring about a lasting peace in Syria.”

Body blow for STW, which will now up the pressure on Corbyn to distance himself too…

Marc Almond on Emma Thompson…

“Emma Thompson has arrived in her gas guzzling carbon footprint stomping jet to serve Vegan food from the boat parked on Oxford Circus while the Yoga classes are taking place on Waterloo Bridge! Haha really? Couldn’t make this stuff up.”
