Blair Doesn’t Rule Out THIRD Referendum

Asked by John Humphrys if he’d call for a third referendum should Leave win a second time round, Tony Blair declined to rule it out. Blair’s delusional performance on Today shows why the ultra Remainers are failing to change any minds:

How many referendums do Remainers want until people vote their way?

Parliament Full of Parasites

Parliament is infested… with bed bugs. They are being spread outside the parliamentary estate by MPs and staff who are taking the little critters back home. A probe by pest controllers found numerous cases of infestation could be traced back to the Palace of Westminster. We warned you…

UPDATE: A Parliamentary spokesman said:

“An occurrence of bed bugs was reported in July 2017 in a limited number of areas of the Parliamentary Estate. Investigations revealed that the outbreak was brought in from outside and did not originate in Parliament. Appropriate action took place to resolve the issue successfully.”

Novara Media Dissolved By Companies House

Novara Media Ltd, the company which controls pro-Corbyn website Novara Media, has been dissolved via compulsory strike-off by Companies House. Aaron Bastani’s company had failed to file its confirmation statement or act when issued with a notice for compulsory strike-off back in October. The Corbynista site’s assets will be passed to the Crown. Guido knows Aaron and co are in favour of nationalisation but this is taking it a bit far…

UPDATE: Novara Media Ltd was incorporated in August 2016, so its accounts would have been due imminently. Are they planning on paying any tax? All assets including their bank accounts should theoretically be frozen…

Sore Ed Backs Press Freedom Hating Cranks

When two jobs Ed Miliband isn’t coining it on tour he’s giving interviews to music magazines bashing the free press. The former Labour leader backed press freedom-hating Stop Funding Hate in a totally-not-really bitter interview with NME:

“Look at the Mail’s campaign against Stop Funding Hate, which is people saying to advertisers that they should stop advertising with the Mail and The Sun. They’re worried, because they’re worried about the power of the consumer to go elsewhere. They’re worried about non-traditional media. I think that is a good thing. But don’t underestimate these people. Never underestimate them. These are grim, grim people. They are absolutely ruthless in pursuing their agenda. They will try to monster their opponents, whoever they are. And they have no ethics. Jeremy was able to say in his conference speech, ‘They had 14 pages about me being a terrorist – they’ll have to have 28 next time.’ In a way, that called their bluff. But they do seep into the bloodstream. Their power is waning, but it hasn’t ended.”

Because Ed never courted the press.

It clearly still hurts…

BBC Fail to Mention “Staff Nurse” is Top Corbynista

The BBC allowed a staff nurse to repeatedly attack the government over the so-called “NHS crisis” this morning, without mentioning that she is a top Corbynista, star of a Labour Party Political Broadcast and hardline left-wing activist. 5Live introduced Danielle Tiplady by saying “Let’s bring in Danielle who is a staff nurse”, before she went on to reel off Labour attack lines on the NHS. What the BBC didn’t tell listeners is that until recently Tiplday’s Twitter account used the name “Danielle vote Labour”, she has addressed dozens of protest rallies where her favourite chant is “Tories out!”, writes for “revolutionary socialist website” Counterfire and the communist Morning Star, and is a leader of the “sack Jeremy Hunt” Bursary or Bust campaign. The above video shows Corbyn talking about how “lovely” Danielle recorded a clip for a Labour Party Political Broadcast. Here she is with the man himself:

The Beeb know Danielle is a Corbynista but keep using her without informing listeners…

UPDATE: The BBC admit they got it wrong, again: “We should’ve established and made clear on air this contributor was a political activist.”

No, Andrea Jenkyns and Jack Lopresti Have Not Called Their Baby Brexit

Classic clickbait from the Sun online team this morning, claiming Tory MPs Andrea Jenkyns and Jack Lopresti have named their baby ‘Brexit Clifford’. Click on the link and you see he is actually just called Clifford. Not that that’s stopping Remainers take the mickey.

Politically Correct Advertising Standards Authority Threaten to Censor Teabagging Elf

The censorious bunch of self-appointed bureaucrats at the Advertising Standards Authority have targeted anti-gay marriage advertsanti-environmentalist advertsFathers4Justice adverts, pro-hanging adverts and women in bikinis in their insidious campaign against politically incorrect causes. Their latest investigation is into Poundland’s teabagging elf, who caused a storm in a teacup over Christmas. Literally several vastly overpaid men will be sitting in a room discussing whether an image of an elf holding a teabag over a plastic doll is against their code. The investigation is going to last months. And all because some lefties moaned on Twitter. Free the teabagging elf!

Corbyn Sells Out on Not Nominating Peers

When he stood for leader arch opponent of the House of Lords Jeremy Corbyn vowed that he wouldn’t nominate any more Labour peers. Post-Shami, Michael Crick reports that Jezza has formally sold out on his principled stance and is now in the process of choosing which comrades he wants to ennoble. What about Lord Mason of Lambeth, since he never did run for parliament? Surely Lord Loach for services to filmmaking. Lord Lansman of Shad Thames could be a good shout. There has been talk of a senior Stop the War figure being nominated – not Lord Murray? Unfortunately Lord Livingstone of Caracas wouldn’t be able to take the Labour whip. Though Lord Galloway may be able to soon. Alas Lord Jones of Islington may be overlooked for disloyalty… 

Sadiq Breaks Fares Freeze Pledge (Again)

Remember Sadiq Khan promised in his manifesto that Londoners “won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today”. He famously said unequivocally on the campaign trail:

I want to be crystal clear – no ifs, no buts – what you’ll pay if I’m elected Mayor in May 2016 is what you’ll pay at the end of my 4 years in office.”

This morning, Transport for London admitted: “On average, Travelcards and caps increased by 3.4%”. The same happened last year. Sadiq’s broken promises keep mounting up… 

Knife Crime Up 31.3% Year-On-Year Under Khan

Knife crime rose by 31.3% in London year-on-year between 2015/16 and 2016/17 according to figures from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime. Data disclosed in a December report authored by Sadiq Khan’s own Deputy Mayor Sophie Linden showed ‘knife crime’ as categorised by City Hall was up 31.3% (from 10,724 in 2015/16 to 14,076 in 2016/17). ‘Knife crime with injury’ was up 20.7%. Four more were killed in stabbings on New Year’s Eve.

Meanwhile according to a Met Police FOI disclosure, data to the latest available month (October 2017) also shows that knife crime is up. Total knife crime across the MPS’s major crime categories of violence against the person, sexual offences and robbery were up to 12,119 offences in 2016/17 from 9,745 in 2015/16. That’s a rise of 24%.

In the years before Khan became mayor the numbers had fallen significantly – the Tories had got the numbers down to between 10 and 15 deaths of young people per year from over 30. Why isn’t Sadiq facing more pressure on this? It should really be a much bigger story…

Split Among Loony Labour Anti-Semites

Hat-tip to Dave Rich for this tale about a farcical split on Labour’s loony left:

Labour Against the Witchhunt is a group set up with the support of Labour Party Marxists to defend Labour members accused of anti-Semitism. They are meeting at the Calthorpe Arms on Gray’s Inn Road at midday Saturday to call for “the immediate lifting of all suspensions and expulsions from Labour Party membership which were… connected to the ‘anti-Semitism’ smear campaign”. Cuckoo.

However, Labour Against the Witchhunt also want to expel some of their own members who they deem to be really anti-Semitic, including the infamous Gerry Downing, who ranted about the “Jewish question”. In response, Downing has set up his own rival group called Reject Bogus Left Antisemitism. Splitter!

Downing and Reject Bogus Left Antisemitism are holding their first meeting on Saturday. Also at midday. Also at the Calthorpe Arms on Gray’s Inn Road. This poor pub will be hosting at the same time one group of Labour cranks who want to keep anti-Semites in Labour, and a second rival group deemed beyond the pale by the first. You couldn’t make it up…

Two Jobs Ed

2015: Labour leader Ed Miliband pledges to ban MPs from having second jobs: “We’ve got to remove any suspicion that MPs are working not for their constituents’ interests but for someone else’s interests.

2018: Backbencher Ed Miliband announces a national live tour of his Reasons to be Cheerful podcast in various cities across the country, selling out London’s 400 seat Leicester Square Theatre later this month with tickets at £15 a pop.

What changed his mind? Ed certainly has a few thousand reasons to be cheerful…

Corbynistas Board Outrage Bus Over Toby Young Appointment

It seems the way to virtue signal that you are a Tory-hating lefty in 2018 is to jump on the outrage bus about Toby Young’s appointment to the Office for Students board. Some of the abuse and whinging from Corbynistas upset that someone with right-of-centre views has got the job is just unhinged. Paul Mason for example is claiming Toby “despises working class kids”. Not a great attack line given he has helped set up four state schools educating 2,000 children, with more than a third at his secondary school eligible for the pupil premium. What has Paul Mason done to help working class kids?

The next moan is that Toby isn’t qualified for the job and that he is unsuitable because he is of the right. Danny Blanchflower, the economist who always gets everything wrong, has even suggested universities should refuse to have anything to do with the Office for Students until he is fired. Guido supposes he is entirely unqualified apart from having worked at Harvard and Cambridge, being a visiting fellow of the University of Buckingham, a Fulbright Commissioner, co-founder of four free schools and director of the New Schools Network.

And as for being political, lefty tweeters don’t seem to have a problem with the chair of the Office for Students Michael Barber being a former adviser to the last Labour government. Quangos are stuffed with lefties and Labour supporters across the board, it is just hypocritical for them to oppose a mainstream centre-right educationalist taking a position. Philip Blond makes a sensible point:


Almost as if it’s all faux outrage just so Owen Jones, Paul Mason et al can get some retweets…

IPSO Throws Out Another Skwawkbox Complaint

Press regulator IPSO has thrown out another complaint from the Corbynista fake news merchants at Skwawkbox. A MailOnline report had revealed the loony site is run by corporate CEO Steven Walker, whose company sells private services to NHS. In 2015 Walker invested £400,000 in mailing equipment which he used to make money from the health service. Skwawkbox simultaneously campaigns against NHS privatisation. No wonder they were upset when that came out…

IPSO has ruled that the MailOnline report that Skwawkbox is run by a man who sells private services to the NHS was fair and accurate. Remember Walker’s notoriously unreliable site falsely claimed there was a D-Notice on the Grenfell Tower death toll and IPSO had already previously ruled it is accurate to call Skwawkbox fake news. Embarrassing… 

Labour Silent on Iran As Top Corbynistas Back Regime

Day six of the protests in Iran and still no comment from Jeremy Corbyn or Emily Thornberry. So far 450 protesters have been arrested and the death toll has exceeded 20. Boris has been defending the protesters’ right to demonstrate so why the silence from Labour? Surely nothing to do with Jezza publicly backing the country’s Khomeinist rulers on dozens of occasions, taking more than £20,000 of their cash for appearing on its fake news station Press TV, rubbing shoulders with Iranian propagandists even after he became leader, or attending the notorious Al-Quds day march backed by Iran. Read Corbyn’s record on Iran in full here.

Fortunately Jezza’s Twitter outriders can give us an idea of his thinking. Here’s Aaron Bastani from pro-Corbyn website Novara Media:


And the infamous Harry Leslie Smith account is blaming the West and arguing Iran doesn’t need to be a democracy:

Unlike Corbynistas not to enjoy a protest…

UPDATE: Thornberry finally issues a statement.

Priti Asks Electoral Commission to Investigate Remain Campaign

Priti Patel has written to the Electoral Commission asking them to launch an investigation following Guido’s stories on how the Remain campaign flouted spending rules during the referendum. As we revealed last week, Remainers shared data, suppliers and campaign materials, coordinated spending, funnelled £1 million to new campaigns set up in the month before the vote, and potentially spent double the legal limit. Priti says:

“There needs to be a thorough investigation into the actions, expenditure and financial probity of Remain campaigners, who appear to have flouted the rules and the spirit of the law to advance their cause in concert with each other.

It cannot be right that remain campaigners can so blatantly flout the rules to feed the British people their propaganda. As well as coordinating campaigning and spending they used every organ of the British state to try to bully people into staying in the EU. They even spent £9m of taxpayers’ money on a campaign leaflet breaking the normal rules of fair play of our democratic system.

‘Despite this wall of fear and fury the British people held their nerve and bravely voted to take back control. Brexit will be a great liberation for this country – but the leadership of the remain campaign must still be held to account for their actions.”

Read her letter in full below:

The Electoral Commission have told the BBC they are looking into Guido’s stories, but have yet to launch a formal probe. A lot of evidence landing on their desk this morning…

2017: The Year ‘Experts’ Were Completely Confounded

Among all the predictions of doom and recession the remainers and economists got wrong they were right about one in 2016 – the pound did fall 15% after the vote. This was not unexpected, Leave backing donors like hedge fund manager Crispin Odey figured that out and traded accordingly. The pound was widely seen as over-valued.

The pessimism on the pound continued into 2017, HSBC predicted it would hit parity with the €uro, Remain backing investment bank Morgan Stanley toppped that with a prediction that the € would surge past parity to be worth £1.02. Brexit-backing economist Roger Bootle’s firm Capital Economics stuck their neck out at the same time and said the £ would finish at €1.13. The pound ended the year at €1.12…

Goldman Sachs’ CEO Lloyd Blankfein has been outspoken against Brexit, his firm forecast sterling would fall from $1.25 to $1.14 in 2017. In fact, it has risen to $1.35. Goldmans also forecast  that the 10-year gilt yields that determine government borrowing costs would rise from 1.28% to 1.65%. They fell to 1.19%…

We were told that banks would leave the City last year, there has been no such exodus, London still has more international banks than any other financial centre in the world. We were told that foreign investors would shuna UK poised to Brexit, yet inward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) hit a record high in 2017, dwarfing all other EU countries. The experts were absolutely wrong.

These same Remain supporting investment banks and international institutions are now predicting that Britain’s GDP will plummet outside the EU. Ironically official figures have just been revised up putting UK GDP growth up with Germany. UK and French GDP has been neck and neck for years, France is actually ahead currently. Guido will wager that in a decade the UK’s GDP will actually be greater than that of France. Any takers among economic experts? 

Record-Breaking Traffic Year #DespiteBrexit

2017 was another record-breaking traffic year for Guido, with nearly 50 million visits to the site. The top ten stories in order of popularity over the last 12 months were:

  1. Khan Hosting Party With 11 Nations Who Ban Israelis
  2. Tory Aides’ Spreadsheet Names 36 Sex Pest MPs
  3. Corbyn Refuses to Bow to the Queen
  4. Corbyn Self-Destructs on Woman’s Hour
  5. Viral Animal Sentience Fake News Story Seen By 2 Million People
  6. Young Tories Joke About ‘Gassing Chavs’ in Activate WhatsApp Group
  7. Diane Abbott Police Numbers Car Crash
  8. Labour Repeatedly Tried to Do Deals With the DUP
  9. Owen Jones Gets Owned Over Venezuela
  10. Labour Candidate: ‘What Good Have the Jews Done?’

And here’s a few of our favourites from the political rollercoaster ride that was 2017…

Who can forget Jared O’Mara? Our revelations of the sexist and homophobic tirades of this wannabe-rockstar MP stunned Labour, ended his career and brought the party’s candidate selections into question. With the news cycle dominated by Brexit this year, our O’Mara stories offered some blessed relief.O’Mara was just one in our series of revelations about Labour’s new intake, including scoops on outspoken MPs such as Emma Dent Coad and Laura Pidcock. It fell to Guido to do much of the vetting which evidently fell by the wayside in the rush of the snap election. Still no thank-you from Labour HQ…Perhaps more predictably, there was no thanks from the leader’s office either for revealing Seumas Milne’s more comradely side this July. And on Brexit? As ever it was left to Guido to provide the counter-narrative to our remain-dominated press. Our long-running #DespiteBrexit series is set to continue into 2018. What else will the New Year bring? Whatever happens, Guido will bring it to you, first, fast and fun…

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
