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. The replies weren’t good:

“Never met them, never been round where I live anyway”

“They just get paid lots of money and don’t know what they’re doing”

“Morons”

Williamson confirmed it’s “probably a fair comment” to call him a “moron”. Looking forward to his turn on Question Time tonight…

10 Times Chris Williamson Wasn’t Sacked

The timing of top Corbynista Chris Williamson’s sacking was a little odd. The avowed hard leftist said he wanted to double council tax this week – but that’s nothing new from the former Shadow Fire Minister. Guido brings you ten times Chris Williamson wasn’t sacked, suspended or investigated, but should have been… 

  1. Refused to deny his politics are closer to murderous Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro and predecessor Hugo Chavez than his own party’s most successful leader, Tony Blair. Watch it here
  2. Blamed the Grenfell disaster on the “violent ideology of neoliberalism”, suggesting Thatcher and Blair were “complicit” in the Grenfell tragedy.
  3. Backed Momentum threats to deselect Luciana Berger whilst she was on maternity leave. Williamson threw his weight behind a hard left intimidation campaign, saying: “individual MPs in this party think it’s their God-given right to rule… I think critics of mandatory re-selection are mistaken…” 
  4. Defended Jackie Walker who was suspended from the Labour Party not once but twice for claiming “Jews” financed the slave trade and for attacking Holocaust Memorial Day.
  5. Denied Labour has an antisemitism problem, calling cases of antisemitic abuse “smears” and “dirty lowdown tricks” being used for “political ends”. Later claimed antisemitism had been “weaponised” in a “proxy war”.
  6. Smeared Laura K sharing a Skwawkbox piece accusing her of bias, which carried a reminder to readers not to resort to “violence or abuse” at the end of the post.
  7. Suggested hiking council tax contrary to Labour policy for the first time, back in November 2017.
  8. Constantly threatened his parliamentary colleagues with compulsory re-selection and deselection throughout his time on the front bench.
  9. Frustrated Jezza’s attempts to play-down Labour’s Venezuela crisis by publicly backing the brutal Maduro regime, describing coverage of Venezuela unrest as “hysterical media hyperbole”.
  10. Trolled much-loved broadcaster Alastair Stewart over the death of his chickens.

What changed yesterday? 

Chris Williamson Sacked from Labour Front Bench

Top Corbynista Chris Williamson has been sacked from the Labour frontbench. He was Shadow Fire Minister. Williamson claims he resigned because he wants to campaign more freely on issues that matter to him. Sources close to Corbyn insist Williamson’s return to the backbenches was a mutual decision, which isn’t quite the same as saying he wasn’t sacked…

UPDATE: Statements from Labour and Chris Williamson:

Chris Williamson said:

“I will be standing down from my role with immediate effect so that I can return to the backbenches, where I will be campaigning on a broader range of issues. I will continue to loyally support the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn from the backbenches and hope to be a voice for the party’s members.”

Jeremy Corbyn said:

“I am grateful for Chris’ work on the frontbench, particularly on fire safety following the appalling Grenfell Tower Fire. I know that on the backbenches, Chris will be a strong campaigner on a range of crucial issues as well as serving his constituents with dedication.”

This week Williamson reiterated his support for doubling council tax on some properties – though that is a long-held view which Williamson has previouly expressed in public. All is not well in the world of the top Corbynistas…

Williamson Attacks MSM for ‘Ignoring’ Prize He Didn’t Know About

Corbynistas have been in meltdown over the past week claiming that mainstream media outlets conspired to ignore a peace prize won by Jeremy Corbyn in September. Top Corbynista Chris Williamson today claimed there was a “blackout” on the news. Williamson was forced to admit that he didn’t actually know Corbyn had won the obscure award until last week – Labour and Corbyn’s team hadn’t publicised it.

Williamson also admitted he didn’t publicise news of the award himself despite his substantial social media presence. The prize, which is named for a former IRA commander, is so left-field it isn’t regularly reported anyway (UK papers have mentioned it twice since 1992). Corbynistas really need to choose their battles…

Loony Chris Williamson Still Loving Castro

Chris Williamson happy once again to lavish praise on the regime of Fidel Castro. No mention, of course, of the forced labour camps set-up by the Castro regime which saw thousands of homosexuals, Jehovah’s witnesses and others imprisoned in misery. No mention of Castro routinely referring to gay people as “faggots” and “worms”. No mention that HIV positive people in Cuba were forced into quarantine and that gay students were expelled from universities. Williamson, a shadow minister remember, wants “the legacy of Fidel to continue”…

Labour MPs Accept Thousands From Russia Today

Remember when Russia Today’s Afshin Rattansi fibbed that they don’t pay politicians to appear on their programmes? Labour MP Rosie Duffield has declared £500 “from Russia Today” on 12 October:

Loony Chris Williamson accepted £1,000 from the Russians for two appearances in October:

Labour MPs taking Moscow gold…

Crackpot Chris Williamson Smears Laura K

Nutjob Corbynista frontbencher Chris Williamson plumbs new depths by promoting a mad Skwawkbox conspiracy theory smearing Laura Kuenssberg. The Skwawkbox piece is proper tin foil hat stuff, going through Laura K’s reporting line by line trying to find anti-Labour bias. They even have to ask their readers not to resort to “violence or abuse” at the end of the post. And Williamson is delighting in riling his followers up by promoting this guff. What a shower.

Journalists Heckled and Questions Banned at Labour Venezuela Event

Labour conference heard a message of solidarity from the Venezuelan ambassador last night before top Corbynista Chris Williamson went full shouty crackers. Williamson awkwardly singled out Nick Cohen and Michael Crick, calling out their names at least fifteen times and wildly demanding to know why they weren’t “celebrating” Venezuela.[…] Read the rest
