When BoJo Went to Glasto

Seventeen years before Jeremy Corbyn addressed the masses at Glastonbury, Boris Johnson delighted crowds with a brief performance of the Iliad, as well as a walkabout tour with Billy Bragg. In his walkabout he met nudists, declaring “I fully support your right to be naked, I’m right behind it” and praised entrepreneurial attitude of attendees “I just saw someone selling mushrooms. This is capitalism, this is commerce, this is the triumph of right wing ideology!” Boris came away from the experience identifying attendees as natural Conservatives…

“I think these people represent a strong libertarian ideology. In fact I would say that there are a lot of natural Tories here. These people who have taken their lives into their own hands, they have arrived here under their own steam, they have paid £87, they have pitched their own tent! Isn’t that a metaphor for what conservatism is?”

Boris there, being party political Glasto on Friday 23rd June, 2000. Before it was cool…

Billy Bragg: Jews “Have Work to Do” to Rebuild Trust With Labour

Top Corbynista Billy Bragg has said British Jews “have work to do” to rebuild trust with the Labour Party, accusing Jews of “pouring petrol on the fire”, claiming “they make things difficult” and insisting “it takes two to tango”. The lefty relic sent a series of tweets late last night lambasting the joint front page from three Jewish newspapers, and British Jews generally. Bragg began by arguing Corbyn’s Labour isn’t as bad as Austria and accusing the Jewish newspapers of creating a “febrile atmosphere”.

When challenged, Bragg accused the Jewish community of “pouring petrol on the fire” and claiming that Jews “keep upping the ante”.

Asked if he thinks British Jews “have work to do here”, Bragg replied: “I do yeah. Instead they make things difficult.”

He concluded by apportioning blame to British Jews for Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal, telling his followers “it takes two to tango”.

If Bragg is a Labour member surely he’s gotta go?
