Corbyn: “You’d Better Make F*cking Sure I Don’t Get Elected”

Jon Lansman reveals what Jeremy Corbyn said when he first learned he was on the ballot for the Labour leadership:

“You’d better make f*cking sure I don’t get elected”

Unusually sound for Jezza…

Siri on Syria

While discussing Syria on Question Time last night, the Siri voice assistant on Jo Johnson’s phone accidentally activated while it was in his pocket. Some mad Corbynistas are using the coincidence to claim Johnson was wired up taking instructions from MI5. ‘Hey Syria’ activates Siri…

Labour Drop Ken Loach as Their Election Broadcast Producer

Guido understands Labour will no longer use Ken Loach as the producer of their election broadcasts following his comments on anti-Semitism this week. Labour sources say they have plans for two more PPBs in the current round and confirm Loach will not be doing them. Inevitable after this recording emerged this morning. That’s one Ken dealt with…

Ken Loach: ‘Why Aren’t the Board of Deputies Protesting Outside Tory HQ? We Know Why’

Ken Loach was condemned by Owen Jones for his call to deselect Labour MPs who protested against anti-Semitism earlier this week. Is he sorry? LBC have audio of him speaking in Canterbury yesterday in which he doubles down and asks:

“Why aren’t the Board of Deputies demonstrating outside of Tory Party Headquarters? We know why. The Chairman of the Board of Deputies, as I understand it, I may be wrong, but was among the first to send a congratulations to Trump and this is not a Labour organisation. This is an organisation that is I read, largely hostile to Labour. Now why aren’t they demonstrating against the other parties?”

Loach went on to warn that media anti-Semitism stories would only become more frequent as:

“it will get worse because if the Labour Party gets into power and if they stick with the manifesto and do go further you have the full range of international capital against us”

Is Corbyn going to do anything about his official election broadcast producer spouting this stuff around the country? Will he still be hired to do Labour PPBs? What is it with Labour Kens?

Ken Tells Momentum Candidate: Waitrose Shoppers Aren’t Scum

Ken Livingstone has sprung to the defence of Waitrose shoppers this morning after Guido revealed a Momentum-backed Labour parliamentary candidate branded the supermarket’s customers “scum”. Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO Red Ken was asked if he approved of Jane Aitchison, who also called Prince Charles “benefit scrounging scum”, labelled the Royal Family “lazy scroungers”, and said 115,000 McDonald’s employees in Britain have “sh*t jobs” selling “sh*t food”. He replied:

“No… if I bump into her while I’m shopping I’ll tell her she was wrong to say that… The justification for Waitrose is the quality of their food is much better than other supermarkets, you’re much less likely if you buy chicken in Waitrose to find it has bacteria all over it… I avoid Tesco because the owner of Tesco helped fund the campaign to abolish the GLC.”

Not exactly surprising Waitrose is the London hard-left’s supermarket of choice. When Ken says you’ve gone too far…

‘Osamoron’ Attacks Media For Accurately Quoting Her Words

Times Red Box reports Labour colleagues have dubbed Kate Osamor “Osamoron” after she posted a late night “clarification” to her interview with House magazine in which they accurately quoted her saying “intervention must take place” and “he needs to be removed” if Assad is proven to be behind the Douma gas attack. She went on to say Corbyn would be “better off” leaving statements on foreign policy to other Labour spokesmen and that he did not “need to speak” as it would not go well for him because of the “relationship he’s had with those countries”. Harsh but fair from a Shadow Cabinet minister…

In an 11pm attempt to save her job, Osamor tweeted that her quotes had been “used selectively”. This is patently untrue, if you read the interview it is clear she said all those words in context. She might be critical of Corbyn but she is happy to use his tactic of complaining when the media quote his words. Owen Smith will be wondering how Osamor and Barry Gardiner have kept their jobs this week…

Business Confidence Returns to Positive

An Institute of Directors poll of 700 company directors has found that business confidence has returned to positive for the first time since Article 50 was triggered. The IoD say the transition deal “has brought some much needed reassurance” and that Brexit is no longer even in the top three concerns of business leaders. IoD senior economist Tej Parikh said:

“It seems likely meaningful progress in Brexit negotiations since December has brought some much needed reassurance.”

Expect the remain press to lap this one up…

Diane Car Crash: WW2 Only Time We’d Back Military Action

Asked four times by Nick Robinson in what circumstances Labour would back military action, the only example Diane Abbott could come up with was the Second World War. Asked what Labour would do if Russia vetoed their proposal for a UN investigation, she had no answer other than to say “we would press on”. Asked what Labour’s policy on Syria was in place of military action, she summed it up as: “we can’t afford to give up hope”. It also took her three answers to concede that Russia is a greater threat to peace than the US. Textbook slow motion car crash…

You Wait Ages For a Free Bus Pass Policy, And Two Come Along At Once

Today:

Labour pledge to fund free bus travel for under 25s in England, at a cost of £1.4 billion.

The Tories say the policy is too expensive, will cost far more than Labour say and means “working people paying the price”.

October: 

Welsh Tories pledge to fund free bus travel for under 25s in Wales, at a cost of £25 million.

Welsh Labour say the policy is too expensive, will cost far more than the Tories say and dub it “fantasy economics”.

The wheels on the free bus pass policy go round and round…

Goldman Sachs CEO: I Was “Wrong” On Brexit

Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein has admitted he was wrong on Brexit. The arch-Remainer said at a Politico event earlier today:

“I am wrong because I would have thought there would have been a worse outcome by now… We are building a big building [in London] for more than £1 billion… I thought there would have been a more dramatic effect by now. As of now the effect hasn’t been dramatic, but you couldn’t tell from the way our building is going up – but three years from now – decisions are being made today that might result in less economic activity so there may be a lag – but at this point it hasn’t been as dramatic a fall off…  the UK should remain and be encouraged to remain not the exclusive financial centre but a dominant financial centre for Europe.”

The Goldman chief previously proposed a second referendum and infamously tweeted: “Just left Frankfurt. Great meetings, great weather, really enjoyed it. Good, because I’ll be spending a lot more time there. #Brexit”. Now it seems he’ll not be spending that much time in Frankfurt after all…

Chris Williamson Erased from Corbyn’s Derby Visit

Jeremy Corbyn was in Derby today to launch Labour’s under-25’s free bus travel policy. The launch was held at Littleover Community School, which is in top Corbynista Chris Williamson’s constituency. For Williamson this is like a visit from the messiah, he should have been all over it like a rash…

So why is he curiously absent from Labour’s coverage of the event? Shadow Transport Secretary Andy McDonald is in shot in the pictures and mentioned in tweets posted by East Midlands Labour – but there’s no sign of Chris anywhere on any of Labour’s social media channels. He’s not even in Jezza’s extensive Instagram story. Nor is he in the Labour press release which advertised the event, which does mention McDonald. He hasn’t even promoted the event on his usually very active Twitter account. Labour sources confirmed Williamson was indeed at the launch, but he’s not in any of the official pictures…

An almost Stalinist erasure of a non-desirable…

Momentum’s Wannabe MP on Waitrose “Scum”, “Sh*t Jobs”, Marxist “Class Fighters” and Royal “Scroungers”

Recess seems like as good a time as any for Guido to introduce you to some of Labour’s newly selected Corbynista parliamentary candidates. Meet Momentum-backed Jane Aitchison, who has been selected to fight Pudsey, where Tory MP Stuart Andrew has a majority of 331. The Yorkshire Post have already reported that Aitchison deleted a tweet in which she called Prince Charles “benefit scrounging scum”. Not yet deleted from her Twitter feed are posts calling Waitrose shoppers “scum“, a Labour donor “scum” (sensing a theme here), labelling the Royal Family “lazy scroungers”, enjoying a Russian TV programme calling the Royals Nazis, praising Marxists as “the best class fighters” and saying 115,000 McDonald’s employees in Britain have “sh*t jobs” selling “sh*t food”.

She seems nice. Like a poundshop Pudsey Pidcock…

Braverman For Brexit

Congratulations to Dexeu minister Suella Fernandes, who following her marriage has changed her ‘Commons name’ to Suella Braverman. Her parliamentary profile, Twitter and her personal website have all been updated accordingly, though unfortunately that means all the links are dead on the now deleted suellafernandes.co.uk. She’s also lost her blue verified tick on Twitter. It’d take a Braverman than Guido to point that out to her…

Morning Star Suggests Douma Attack Was Set-Up

The sickos who write Corbyn’s favourite paper have plumbed new depths by suggesting the Douma chemical attack was a set-up. The paper’s editorial calls Assad the “legitimate” ruler of Syria and suggests the children in the harrowing images from the scene were not really gassed. Remember they previously backed the slaughter in Aleppo.

“Today, the pretext for escalating Britain’s military involvement in Syria is that the Assad regime — the internationally recognised, legitimate and elected government in Damascus — is guilty of a poison gas attack on the citizens of Douma. Film of the aftermath, broadcast across the world in recent days, shows a troupe of very camera-conscious young men washing down the victims, all of whom are children, most of them looking more bewildered than wounded or incapacitated, and without a distressed parent or relative in sight.”

This is the paper Corbyn chooses to have delivered to his office. Does he agree?

British Manufacturers Report High Profitability and Confidence

Britain’s post-Brexit boom continues as UK manufacturers recorded their second-highest levels of profitability ever. According to the Office for National Statistics, net rates of return for manufacturing companies increased from 13.8% in the third quarter of 2017 to 15.8% in the final quarter, marking the second-highest value to date. On top of this, the latest UK Business Outlook from IHS Markit released this morning shows manufacturers are bullish on growth:

“Growth expectations in the manufacturing sector are the highest for more than two and a half years manufacturers cite the improving global economic backdrop and hopes of increased export sales.”

The net balance of UK manufacturers predicting a rise in output is at +58% in February, up on+54% in October 2017. And they said Brexit would crash Britain’s manufacturing sector…

Owen Jones Tries to Get Andrew Neil Sacked From BBC

Owen Jones has written a long whinge about Andrew Neil calling for him to be “freed” from the BBC. The last person to demand Brillo’s sacking was Andrew Adonis, which tells you everything you need to know about the state of Owen at the moment.[…] Read the rest

Diane Abbott on Amber Rudd:

Who can have confidence in Amber Rudd to make far-reaching changes to the Home Office if she doesn’t seem able to get basic facts right?”
