Labour’s Free Speech Clampdown on Constituency Parties

As Guido reported yesterday, constituency Labour branches are currently up in arms over an edict from HQ banning motions in support of Jeremy Corbyn. Despite the new rule, many hard-left cranks are ignoring General Secretary David Evans and pressing on regardless, with some 36 CLPs backing Corbyn with the result that at least half-a-dozen local officials have been suspended. The hard left aren’t happy and are going on about Starmer’s suppression of debate and free speech.

Some digging through the Labour history archives reveals that it’s not the first time in recent living memory a Labour General Secretary has banned motions regarding individual disciplinary cases of hard-left figures. Under whose leadership did a General Secretary clamp down on such free speech? Miliband? Blair? Kinnock? It’s……… Jeremy Corbyn, banning local parties from voicing support for Chris Williamson:

“Please note that individual disciplinary cases that are being dealt with through the NEC disputes processes are confidential. Motions on individual cases are therefore not competent business for discussion at CLPs and will not be discussed by the NEC or any associated bodies.”

– Jennie Formby, 2019

Guido can’t recall many of the TrotsApp rent-a-gob crowd now whinging accusing Corbyn of suppressing debate and free speech at that time. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

Chris Williamson’s New National, Socialist Party

Voldemort lookalike and disgraced former Labour MP Chris Williamson has decreed that “Jeremy Corbyn’s suspension by the Starmer regime has been the final straw”, and that the Labour Party can no longer be considered a true “vehicle for socialism“. Through building alliances with other left-wing groups, Williamson plans his new outfit to have far greater reach than his former Derby North constituency. Truly building a new national, socialist party…

In a rambling Twitter thread, the former MP declares that his future socialist party “shouldn’t be purely committed to electoral politics” calling that “a well-trodden and misguided path“. A national, socialist party with a strong extra-parliamentary wing, all founded by a man who has been mired in what many consider to be rampant antisemitism. It’s a bit on the nose isn’t it…

Chris Williamson Begs for More Cash as EHRC Case Falters

Back in July, Chris Williamson launched a crowdfunding attempt to fight the “so-called” Equality and Human Rights Commission and, naturally, the “Israel lobby”. A new video published today asks for an extra £10,000 on top of all the money he raised over the summer. The short video leaves out a lot of information. Williamson claimed on Twitter that he was able to “surpass my initial crowdfunding target in a matter of hours”. So why is he begging for a further £10,000 now?

Guido understands that in recent weeks both Ken Livingstone and Chris Williamson commenced a judicial review over the EHRC report’s publication. Now the rumour going around is that the Judge is set to dismiss their case. If that were true then Williamson would need some more cash to pay for a hefty court bill to pay that he can’t afford…

Chris Williamson Crowdfunding against EHRC and the “Israel Lobby”

Disgraced former Labour MP Chris Williamson has today launched a crowdfunding appeal to take on a fierce enemy of the left – the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Williamson, who stood as an Independent in the last election, losing the seat and his deposit, has resorted to appealing for donations after learning he has been named in the EHRC’s Draft Report into the Labour Party’s handling of antisemitism. He wants to take legal action “about this and other matters”…

In a bizarre appeal video, Williamson promises to fight the EHRC which, he alleges, “appears determined to smear our movement”. Any leftover money from the fundraiser will be put into a ‘fighting fund’, with Williamson explaining in interesting language…

“The fighting fund’s already supported activists with legal costs and defended people who’ve been smeared by the Israel Lobby.”

He’s already raised over £5,000. Pales in comparison to Jeremy Corbyn’s £300,000

Cooking with Chris

This month, Corbynista professional Jew-baiter Chris Williamson appeared in The World – the self-professed “Radical Newspaper that is not afraid to say what the MSM are afraid of”. 

What was this month’s radical offering that would have the mainstream media shaking? A vegan carrot bolognese recipe from the former Derby MP who even got dressed up for the occasion. Guido’s checked the ingredient list and it looks like a fully kosher meal – though you may want to check with your own Rabbi before trying – bon appétit…

Chris Williamson’s Epilogue

While Chris Williamson may have lost his seat, it isn’t stopping him campaigning. He’s released a video blaming Corbyn’s defeat on a “hostile foreign government“. Can you guess which one?

No prizes for guessing it was Israel. Invokes memories of when the Canary had to downsize after their ad revenue collapsed and blamed it on political Zionists

He’s still on the loony left-wing circuit with his “Democracy Roadshow“, campaigning to defend Corbynism and “stop the witch-hunt“. He lost his Derby North seat to the Amanda Solloway, a Tory. He lost his deposit. Guido can’t recall any sitting MP ever losing their deposit before…
