Corbynista Coup Thwarted on Venezuela APPG

There were dramatic scenes in parliament last night at the Venezuela APPG as a group of Corbynista MPs, including Chris Williamson and shadow minister Karen Lee, attempted to stage a takeover of the committee. Amid confusion about when and where the meeting was taking place, the Corbynistas attempted to eject the public from the AGM and force an early vote on the committee while they were in the majority. A classic Chavista-style manoeuvre…

However, the plan was foiled when quick-thinking MPs including Andrew Lewer activated their WhatsApp networks and rallied moderate colleagues, who promptly turned up in large numbers to outnumber the Corbynistas. After APPG Chair and Labour moderate Graham Jones refused to clear the room as the Corbynistas were demanding, Williamson realising he was in the minority got up and stormed out with his comrades. The Venezuela APPG – which is leading the way in exposing the plight of Venezuelan victims of the regime – was within a whisker of becoming a cheerleader for the murderous Maduro regime. As one counter-revolutionary Tory MP quipped afterwards, “Thank God for WhatsApp”…

Chris Williamson Facing Deselection Battle

Fresh from his ‘democracy roadshow’, which as far as Guido can make out consists solely of Williamson travelling to the constituencies of colleagues he dislikes and agitating for their deselection, our favourite nutty purer-than-pure Corbynista is now facing a deselection threat of his own. HuffPo’s Paul Waugh has heard that Williamson will “definitely be challenged” by the Unions, who see his mandatory re-selection campaign as one to undermine the power of the unions. Getting a taste of his own medicine…

Corbynistas Launch Boycott of “Deplorable” Guardian

The rest of the political world looked on in absolute bafflement last night as the hard left took aim at that notorious bastion of incorrigible right wing thoughtcrime… the Guardian.

It truly was the Judean People’s Front vs the People’s Front of Judea as The Canary organised a #BoycottTheGuardian Twitter pile-on, ostensibly “to hold the Guardian to account for its coverage of Jeremy Corbyn”. Seriously…

The specific charges were that the Guardian had been “dedicated” to spreading “spurious charges of antisemitism” against Corbyn:

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson also backed the boycott, despite having written for the “deplorable” paper himself little over a year ago:

In fact the likely real trigger for The Canary choosing the Guardian for the hard left’s latest Two Minutes of Hate was the negative reaction from Guardian journalists to Canary editor-in-chief Kerry-Anne Mendoza being invited to the Guardian offices to give the NUJ’s Claudia Jones Memorial Lecture. Guido has a lot of sympathy with Kerry-Anne in her fight against the establishment media. Really can’t understand why Guardian hacks want to “no platform” her. If they think she is wrong they should take the opportunity to challenge her. Play nicely, comrades…

UPDATE: Guardian journalists will be having an emergency NUJ chapel meeting at 2pm today to talk about Mendoza’s invite…

Williamson Avoids Question NINE Times on Newsnight

In his interview with Evan Davis last night, over the course of nine questions Chris Williamson failed to answer why or whether Corbyn laid a wreath on the graves of Black September terrorists who died in 1991/1992, instead trying to pivot, obfuscate, confuse, and bewilder, repeating the line that Corbyn was there to commemorate those killed in an Israeli air attack in 1985, deliberately avoiding the actual questions being asked.

Chris Williamson Tries to Stop Jewish Labour MPs’ Anti-Semitism Motion

At last night’s PLP meeting, Labour MPs passed a motion calling on the party to adopt the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. Before the vote, Chris Williamson raised a point of order attempting to stop two Jewish Labour MPs from moving their motion, to the fury of his colleagues. Peak Chris Williamson.

Meanwhile away from the meeting, 68 rabbis took the unprecedented step of signing a letter calling on Labour to adopt the full IHRA definition. In an extraordinary intervention from a broad spectrum across the Jewish community, they wrote:

“antisemitism within sections of the Labour party has become so severe and widespread that we must speak out with one Jewish voice. The Labour party’s leadership has chosen to ignore those who understand antisemitism the best, the Jewish community. By claiming to know what’s good for our community, the Labour party’s leadership have chosen to act in the most insulting and arrogant way.”

Still Labour moderates do nothing about this other than send a few tweets. Once again the Tory shambles letting Labour get away with this…

Red on Red: Leslie vs Williamson

Labour wars on the Daily Politics today as Chris Leslie and Chris Williamson clashed over compulsory re-selections and anti-semitism. Leslie challenged top Corbynista Williamson:

“You shouldn’t really be sharing platforms with the likes of Jackie Walker… you have a big role to play in standing up against anti-semitism.”

Williamson dodged that point. Corbyn has told his outriders not to call anti-semitism a smear, what is he going to do about Williamson and McCluskey? Nothing…

Williamson at Smeeth Hearing in Support of Her Abuser

Grim scenes ahead of the Labour HQ hearing on Marc Wadsworth, the Momentum activist who abused Jewish MP Ruth Smeeth in 2016. Smeeth had to be escorted to Southside by Labour colleagues and was told to enter her own party headquarters through the back door to avoid pro-Wadsworth protesters. Chris Williamson has turned up to support Wadsworth…

… Alongside other Corbynistas claiming anti-Semitism is a smear:

The infamous Tony Greenstein, who was expelled from Labour for using the term “Zio”, is outside Labour HQ telling journalists that Israel “should go”:

What is Corbyn going to do about this? Will he even say anything about Williamson?

Top Corbynista MPs Attend Pro-Assad Rally

Labour MPs tonight joined a pro-Assad rally alongside protesters with flags, hats and scarves bearing the face of the Syrian tyrant. Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon, Chris Williamson, Emma Dent Coad and Lloyd Russell-Moyle were among those present at this evening’s Stop the War demo at Parliament Square. Williamson told an audience waving pro-Corbyn placards and communist flags that there was no evidence for the Douma chemical attack and that Assad had no motive to carry it out. Echoing Kremlin talking points, Williamson said:

“Why would the Assad regime at this stage of the appalling conflict in Syria, where he’s virtually won the battle for Eastern Ghouta, launch a chemical weapons attack when it would be bound to bring on the wrath of the West? … The motive is questionable, the evidence – where is the evidence? It just isn’t there. And it’s no coincidence, it seems to me, that on the day before the OPCW inspectors were due to start their inspection, these air strikes took place. What is going on? There are very serious questions, it seems to me, that need to be answered.”

One Assad supporter told Guido said the Syrian leader had not done anything illegal and that it was the UK parliament that was acting illegally. He added his message to Jeremy Corbyn was “well done”.

Corbyn’s Labour…

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…

Kremlin’s Useful Idiot Backs Notorious Anti-Semite

Chris Williamson has taken some time out from spouting Kremlin talking points on Russian TV to defend a notorious anti-Semite on Twitter. First Williamson denied Scott Nelson had ever sent these infamous tweets about the “Jewish connections” and “Jewish blood” of Tesco and Marks & Spencer. Nelson was very publicly booted out of the Labour Party…

Then, confronted with the tweets, Williamson decided to still back Nelson:

And he’s been retweeting Nelson’s Twitter account:

Christine Shawcroft resigned for less. No action from Labour…

Woodcock on Williamson

John Woodcock:

“Last week Chris Williamson told me I belonged to the wrong party. He appears to believe he belongs to the wrong country.”

Kremlin’s Corbynista Useful Idiots

Chris Williamson’s Russia Today interview is being broadcast on the Russian state news agency TASS this evening, complete with Russian subtitles. He argues the UK government is using the Skripal attack to distract from Brexit, which is literally a Kremlin line to take. Meanwhile Corbyn Twitter outrider Aaron Bastani says it could have been done by Israel:

Is it a full moon?

Woodcock v Corbyn and Williamson

As John Woodcock lays into Jeremy Corbyn in the Commons, Chris Williamson tells him to go and join the Tories. Keep an eye out for Woodcock cupping his ear…

Chris Williamson Puts Morning Star in PMQs Shot

Chris Williamson is sitting behind Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs with communist paper the Morning Star deliberately left in camera shot on his lap. Presumably it will stay there for Jezza’s response to the Russia statement too…

Chris Williamson Takes Murdoch Shilling

Chris Williamson is now in the pay of Rupert Murdoch’s News UK. The latest Register of Members Interests reveals the top socialist pocketed a tidy £300 for seven hours hard work promoting his Corbynista views on TalkRadio. Williamson, who regularly tweets “don’t buy The Sun”, is a vocal critic of the British media and has previously singled-out Murdoch titles for scathing criticism.

Surely Chris will be donating the proceeds to charity, how about Help For Heroes?

Chris Williamson: ‘I’m Damned If I’ll Sing the National Anthem’

A throwback from the archive of more Corbyn-than-Corbyn former shadow minister Chris Williamson, proudly boasting that he won’t sing the national anthem. Addressing a Momentum conference alongside John McDonnell, Williamson said:

“My dad was an ardent republican and I’m an ardent republican too so I’m damned if I’m going to be singing the national anthem.”

For his ‘Christmas broadcast’ this year Williamson green-screened himself inside the state rooms at Buckingham Palace. Make your mind up…

Corbyn Shares Platform With Malia Bouattia as Williamson Vows: ‘We’ll Paint Number 10’s Door Red’

Jeremy Corbyn tonight reignited the anti-Semitism scandal in the Labour Party by sharing a platform with ousted former NUS President Malia Bouattia at a hard left event in Parliament. Guido can reveal Jezza dropped-by unannounced and spoke alongside Bouattia at a Corbynista book launch which was quietly billed as a ‘Manifesto Discussion’ in Portcullis House. Jezza’s attendance was presumably kept a secret as it would have been too controversial to advertise…

Controversial Bouattia – whose tenure as NUS was marred by accusations of anti-Semitism – addressed the gathering of ardent Corbynistas after Corbyn spoke. In her speech Bouattia praised Corbyn, attacked the government’s Prevent anti-terror programme and accused Labour of “structural racism” – but did not mention the party’s anti-Semitism scandal. Corbyn applauded her speech and posed for photos with Bouattia as they left the event.

Previously, Bouattia:

  • Received an open letter from Jewish societies in 48 universities, demanding she explain the numerous allegations of anti-Semitism levelled at her;
  • Suggested the government’s anti-terror Prevent programme is backed by a “Zionist lobby“;
  • Spoke at an event alongside Leila Khaled, a terrorist hijacker; Bouattia used her platform to defend armed struggle. She also lashed out against the “mainstream Zionist led media outlets”;
  • Spearheaded the scrapping of an NUS motion that proposed the organisation should condemn ISIS, on the grounds that it was “islamophobic”;
  • Was celebrated by Jihadi John apologist group CAGE;
  • Called her own university, Birmingham, “something of a Zionist outpost”;
  • Claimed the EU’s definition of anti-semitism is “ominous”.

Other top Corbynistas in attendance included John McDonnell, who left early, and Chris Williamson, recently fired from the Shadow Cabinet. Williamson gave a speech which opened:

“The first thing I want Jeremy to do when we carry him across the threshold of Downing Street is to order a diktat, and that is to paint Number 10’s door red… the important thing is not just to get into power, but to sustain power once we get there.”

The room cheered and applauded as Corbyn laughed along. Other speakers included Cambridge prof Glen Rangwala, who revealed he had helped write the foreign policy section of Labour’s manifesto. He criticised the manifesto’s continuing support for Trident. Corbyn applauded his speech…

The real Jezza among friends…

Dead-Eyed Williamson’s Chilling Denial of Momentum Bullying

Confronted with Claire Kober and Nora Mulready’s testimony of bullying at the hands of the hard left, Chris Williamson dismissed the claims: “It’s certainly not my experience.” Women’s experiences don’t count for Labour brocialists…

Williamson Booed As He Repeats: “Jezza Will Be Britain’s Greatest PM”

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson was booed as repeated his favourite new line on Question Time last night:

“Jeremy Corbyn is the best leader that the Labour Party has ever produced and will be the greatest Prime Minister this country has ever seen”

“Moron”

Chris Williamson Admits He is A “Moron”

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson has a lot of time on his hands since he lost his frontbench job. The firebrand socialist has gone “undercover” (in his Fire Bridages Union beanie) to find out what his constituents really think of their local Labour MPs – including the Derby North representative himself.[…] Read the rest
