Labour Member Leading Berger Deselection Attempt is Israel Conspiracist Who Called Her “Disruptive Zionist”

Labour’s anti-Semitism problem has risen to the fore again with Labour members in Luciana Berger’s Liverpool Wavertree constituency tabling a motion of no confidence against her. Incredibly, John McDonnell has responded by pointing the finger of blame at Berger herself, eliciting disbelief from other senior Labour figures. Chuka branded it “totally unacceptable” and Shadow Cabinet Minister Angela Rayner has given Berger her “full support”. Labour’s official responses so far have been woeful…

It now emerges that the local Labour member who proposed one of the (two) no confidence motions, Kenneth Campbell, goes on regular rants about “traitorous Blairites” on Facebook, saying it is “about time [Berger] was exposed for the disruptive Zionist she is” and even claiming that Israel supports ISIS. In another rant he menacingly said that Laura Kuenssberg’s days are “nearing there [sic] end”:

When is Labour going to get serious about rooting out the rot of anti-Semitism that has infested the party?

UPDATE: Both motions of no-confidence have been withdrawn by the local Labour Party and the extraordinary meeting has been cancelled…

Rayner: “Politicians Have Failed the Public” if We End Up With Second Referendum

Shadow Education Secretary and Corbyn ally Angela Rayner with a pretty robust takedown of holding a second referendum or extending Article 50. “Us as politicians have failed the public”…

DJ Rayner Cuts Shapes to Stormzy

Shadow Education Secretary and touted Deputy Leadership candidate Angela Rayner was seen cutting some shapes at the CWU’s Monday night party at Labour Conference. She was on the decks playing Stormzy’s ‘Never Too Big For Your Boots.’

Sadly no sign of part-time DJ part-time MP Jared O’Mara…

Labour’s Shameless Scaremongering on Free School Meals

The House of Commons last night voted through reforms to Universal Credit (which Labour opposes in principle). As is now normal with a crucial vote, Labour instigated a co-ordinated outrage storm when their statutory instrument failed…

Rayner told the House:

“1 million children growing up in poverty will lose out on free school meals that they would have been entitled to. “

Earlier in his response to the Spring Statement, John McDonnell had claimed:

“Today the Government are even trying to deprive 1 million children of a decent school dinner.”

Awkwardly for Labour, fact checking organisations have probed that one million claim and found it wanting. A Channel 4 investigation found:

“No one who is currently eligible for free school meals under Universal Credit will lose their entitlement. In fact, under Universal Credit, 50,000 more children will receive school meals by 2022 than would have done under the previous benefits system.

This is not a case of the government taking free school meals from a million children who are currently receiving them: it’s about comparing two future, hypothetical scenarios. Both of them are more generous than the old benefits system.”

That didn’t stop ‘get on your knees, b*tch’ Clive Lewis calling Esther McVey:

“Meaner even than the master in Oliver Twist’s workhouse… [she] seeks not just to stop the second helping, but to stop any meal at all.”

This is why people hate politicians, because they are industrial scale liars. Labour again willing to weaponise the anxiety of poor families…

Rayner Laughed As McDonnell Talked About Killing Thatcher

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW7AgGnSRMg

Angela Rayner and Dawn Butler were outraged about some old Toby Young Twitter jokes, yet either stayed silent or actively defended Labour MPs guilty of real-life violent misogyny. Rayner said she was “happy to sit alongside” Jared O’Mara and Dawn Butler supported his “journey”, despite him calling a woman an “ugly bitch” in a nightclub just a few months ago. Neither Rayner nor Butler had anything to say about Clive Lewis shouting “get on your knees bitch”. They have had nothing to say about Labour’s whitewashing of the Kelvin Hopkins’ sexual harassment allegations. They had nothing to say about John McDonnell calling Esther McVey a “bitch” and calling for her to be lynched. And they had nothing to say about McDonnell talking about killing Britain’s first female Prime Minister. Worse than that, Rayner was sitting next to him at the time and burst out laughing – watch above. Almost as if she doesn’t really care about the sisterhood and is happy to let the brocialists get away with actual nailed on sexism…

Rayner: Toby Has to Go, Jared Can Stay

Toby Young has resigned from the Office for Students board following the furore over his tweets. Angela Rayner is being credited with the scalp, so it’s worth remembering her double standards and faux outrage over the last few days. Rayner led the calls for Toby to go, claiming his tweets were evidence of a “history of homophobia and misogyny”. Yet what was her view of Labour’s Jared O’Mara, whose social media postings were in a different league and who actually hurled sexist abuse at a woman in person just last year? Rayner said “I am happy to sit alongside him” in the Commons. You don’t get double standards more blatant than that – this was political, pure and simple…

Rayner on Labour’s Economic Policy

Corbynistas Turn on Rayner and Thornberry

Angela Rayner’s odds to be the next Labour leader are moving out after the Corbynistas turned on her over the weekend. Rayner publicly slapped down Momentum’s purge of centrist councillors and refused to sign the Corbyn loyalty test. She had been tipped as the potential left candidate to succeed Corbyn, now prominent Corbynistas Max Shanly, Aaron Bastani and Skwawkbox, often outriders for the Leader’s office, are throwing her under a bus:

Meanwhile Emily Thornberry, the current favourite to succeed Jezza, is also getting it in the neck from lefty Twitter trolls after she defended Israel and said anyone who questions its right to exist should be kicked out of Labour (bad news for Seumas et al). Almost as if the ambitious Rayner and Thornberry winning some positive coverage in the press has seen the Corbynistas want to take them down a peg…

Mr Rayner’s Alternative to Badger Cull

Since badger killing is in the news at the moment, worth taking a look at the Corbynista view of the cull. Angela Rayner’s husband Mark, a top trade union official, suggests an alternative plan on his Facebook page, posting this charming “Cull the Tories” graphic. Kinder, gentler…

Rayner’s Porkies on Working Class Student Numbers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclUuQJgDfU&feature=youtu.be

Angela Rayner was caught out telling a straight untruth on working class student numbers last night. Rayner claimed:

“More people are going to university but percentage wise there’s less coming from working class backgrounds if you take it as a proportion of the percentage of those that are in.”

Dimbleby slapped her down:

“The UCAS figures showed that the gap between the most and least advantage has fallen… So when you say the opposite is happening you seem to be saying the opposite of what the facts suggest.”

This is the fib Corbyn was caught telling in July. They know it is untrue and they keep repeating it.

https://youtu.be/a581RgmMAUk

It didn’t go much better for Rayner on Labour’s student debt u-turn. Judging by the laughter from the audience it has cut through…

Rayner on Student Debt

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner:

“We have no plans to write off existing student debt.”

Rayner: Pledge to Cancel Student Debt ‘Not a Promise’

“I don’t see why those that had the historical misfortune to be at university during the £9,000 period should be burdened excessively compared to those that went before or those that come after. I will deal with it.” That was Jeremy Corbyn’s crystal clear pledge to students at the election: “I will deal with” your student debt. It was written up by all media outlets as a pledge to write off debts. Not once during the election did Labour contest that interpretation of Corbyn’s words. Thousands of young people will have voted Labour believing this to be a cast iron guarantee.

Last week Angela Rayner confirmed the policy would cost £100 billion but defended it on Marr: I like a challenge, Andrew, but we’ve got to start dealing with this debt crisis that we’re foisting on our young people. It’s not acceptable”. Last night Rayner confirmed the pledge had been downgraded to an “ambition” and not a “promise“. Take note students, they were having you on…

Rayner: Corbyn Wrong About Student Numbers

Corbyn slapped down by his own Shadow Education Secretary over his repeated porkies about working class student numbers. He knows the truth…

“Arlene Foster the Most Expensive Right-Winger Since Cristiano Ronaldo”

He plays more on the left these days…

Rayner on May

Expect to see Angela Rayner’s line on Theresa May used in tonight’s debate:

“This Prime Minister is for turning but not for turning up.”

Angela Rayner Does a Diane: Can’t Remember Class Size Numbers

Here we go again. Angela Rayner, the Shadow Education Secretary and some say Labour leadership hopeful, could not tell LBC’s Nick Ferrari how many children would be affected by her class size policy. At least she admitted she was clueless rather than make it up like Diane…

Why are these failures to have any idea about numbers important? It is because if she has no idea how many kids are over the threshold how can Labour possibly place a cost on changing the situation in government? It is all imaginary magic money with no thought as to budgets…

Rayner Slams “Totally Untrue” Rumours Peddled By Labour Election Chief

Top Corbynista Angela Rayner is upset with irresponsible politicians who have been peddling “rumours” that Tameside hospital in her constituency faces downgrade. Rayner has reassured her constituents the stories are “totally untrue”. 

What kind of person would peddle such false speculation?

Much of the furore seems to have emanated from a press release fired off last week by Labour’s new national elections organiser Andrew Gwynne:

Speculation is rising Tameside Hospital’s Accident and Emergency Unit could join 23 other A&E units across the country that have been identified for a possible downgrade or closure… I am extremely concerned… I’ll be speaking to the Chief Executive of Tameside Hospital”

Was Rayner’s tweet was aimed at her party’s election chief? When telling the truth to your constituents gets in the way of your colleagues’ shameless electioneering…

Shadow Education Secretary Schooled By Laura K

Last night Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner, who some amusingly tip as a future Labour leader, fired off a press release welcoming the government’s decision to drop grammar schools. Rayner claimed grammars have been “abandoned as a result of the huge pressure Labour has put the Government under”. Except they haven’t dropped grammars at all – Rayner’s press release was completely, 100%, wrong.

Rayner then doubled down, claiming the government were refusing to allow a vote on grammars. BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg had to explain that she was wrong on this too, and that the legislation will go ahead:

Laura then had to politely explain to Angela how parliament works:

For the avoidance of doubt, the government have confirmed there will be a vote on grammars. High level scrutiny from our opposition…

New Footage of McDonnell on “Assassinating Thatcher”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW7AgGnSRMg

In 2010 John McDonnell insisted he was “sorry” for saying he would like to go back in time and assassinate Thatcher. Readers will be stunned to learn his apology might not have been genuine. New YouTube footage, which has only been viewed 45 times, shows McDonnell speaking in 2014.[…] Read the rest
