Labour Councillors Turn On Sadiq Khan’s Two Car Hypocrisy

Labour councillors turned on Sadiq Khan last night while discussing the Mayor’s latest plans to move City Hall from the centre of London to the East End’s Royal Docks. Despite Khan’s own planning policy saying new developments should be car-free, plans for the new London Assembly building include two dedicated mayoral car parking spaces, a hypocrisy one Labour councillor branded “outrageous” during a Zoom meeting last night. “Two Car Sadiq” – echos “Two Jags Prescott”…

While the mayor’s team claim the hypocritical plans are due to security reasons, the Labour councillor chairing the meeting, Daniel Blaney, said the excuse was “completely baffling” and suggested Khan follows the approach of previous mayors Ken Livingston and Boris Johnson who managed to travel by public transport and bike.

The Labour councillors were so outraged they “couldn’t let this go” and called a vote on a motion that would scrap the mayor’s parking spots, which lost by one vote. Guido expects Extinction Rebellion will already be preparing a protest at the glass gonad…

Foreign Aid Funds Chinese Rice Advice

As the world’s second-biggest economy lands a third moon landing to bring back lunar rocks to China, the Department of Business Enterprise and Industrial Strategy is sending the Chinese £478,906 to help them grow more rice. What next, sending sand management consultants to Saudi Arabia?

The half-a-million in spending was uncovered by the Taxpayers’ Alliance, Guido doesn’t see why Britain’s taxpayers should be sending foreign aid to nations that are nuclear powers with space programmes. If a country wants to prioritise nuclear weapons, British taxpayers should not be effectively subsidising that. In the event of emergencies and natural disasters – like famine, flooding and earthquakes – we can make an exception.

If the government is going to amend legislation to make the 0.5% aid budget permanent, it would be a good opportunity to add a clause preventing aid being sent, as a matter of course, to nations with nuclear weapons. So China would not normally be a recipient of foreign aid. This would also exclude nations such as the three unofficial nuclear powers which have not ratified the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty – India, Israel, Pakistan. The Foreign Secretary would have to certify that the aid being sent to such a country is for an urgent emergency.

Labour Candidate: If Covid Vaccine Isn’t Vegan It Breaches My Human Rights

The rollout of the vaccine next year is increasingly looking like Manchester’s only route out of Tier 3, though one Mancunian Labour politician has much more pressing Covid concerns; a Facebook comment unearthed by Guido shows leftie Labour candidate Thomas Pilkington fretting over whether the Coronavirus vaccine will be “totally vegan?”

Pilkington loves the animal world so much he’s become a proponent of Darwinism…

5 Labour Councillors Quit to Form “Eco-Socialists” Over Corbyn’s Suspension… As He Was Readmitted

There were red faces all round in Lancaster last night as five formerly Labour councillors – including the deputy leader of Lancaster Council – announced that “with deep sadness and rage” they have quit the Labour group and will instead sit as the “Eco-Socialist Independents“. Citing Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension from the party as the catalyst for the split, the group issued a statement decrying Starmer’s leadership:

“For a brief time, a ‘moment’, the Labour Party offered hope to millions, to the many not the few. Today under Starmer, it is offering a return to ‘business as usual’.”

They will have been disappointed, therefore, to learn that as they released their defection statement yesterday afternoon, Jeremy Corbyn was being readmitted to the party by a panel of NEC members. Oops.

One of the defectors, Kevin Frea, has now been in the Greens, Labour, and the Eco Socialists – with Corbyn’s re-admission he could now hop back to Labour too. Local MP David Morris tells Guido that “If Kevin Frea has any more parties in 2020 he’s going to get a ten grand fine”…

Extinction Rebellion Damage More Environment

A handful of lunatic Extinction Rebellion activists have busied themselves making a non-essential mess in the City of London today, pouring paint over the International Chamber Of Shipping building. Because we must remember it’s not just planes, trains, and cars that are bad, boats are too. Anything that enables people to travel or trade beyond their local village is obviously antithetical to the regressive Green agenda…

And obviously, despite breaking lockdown and vandalism laws, they walked away scot-free…
