Guido’s Guide to the New Loony Left

With babyfaced Socialist Campaign Group member Dan Carden resigning today, it can be hard to keep track of all the young loony left Labour MPs. As they make more headlines becoming increasingly assertive against Sir Keir, Guido today brings you a comprehensive guide to keeping track of the loony left’s 2019 intake. Some have already made quite a name for themselves…

  • Nadia Whittome, MP for Nottingham East. Majority: 17,393. 24-year-old Baby of the House and former private school girl, Whittome made headlines by accidentally falling off the shadow ministerial ladder on live TV after voting against the Veterans Bill. Before being elected she worked as a Parliamentary intern for Pat Glass MP.
  • Zarah Sultana, MP for Coventry South. Majority: 401. 26-year-old Zarah almost didn’t win her West Midlands seat in 2019, with Labour’s majority collapsing from 7,947 to just 401. Former NUS hack. Has begun to style herself as the Honourable Member for Twitter with often viral pithy yet platitudinous socialist tweets. Pays her staff what she calls ‘poverty wages‘…
  • Claudia Webbe, MP for Leicester East and still a sitting Councillor in Islington. Majority: 6,019. Currently suspended as a Labour MP after being charged with harassment against a woman. Formerly Labour NEC member and head of disputes for the party. Formerly advisor to Ken Livingstone. Questionable judgement.
  • Bell Ribeiro-Addy, MP for Streatham. Majority: 17,690. Another former NUS hack. As Black Students Officer at the NUS, she once shut down a debate at Durham University with threats of violence because a controversial speaker was invited. Spoke at a “salute” to the Second Intifada, which killed 1,000 Israelis. Keeps attending Zoom calls with former Labour members expelled for antisemitism…
  • Charlotte Nichols, MP for Warrington North. Majority: 1,509. Daughter of the President of the TUC. Worked for a trade union for five years before becoming an MP. PPS to Emily Thornberry and Louise Haigh. Confused over lockdown communication. Not a fan of gay Tories.
  • Apsana Begum, MP for Poplar and Limehouse. Majority: 28,904. In 2014 accused Tony Blair of “spreading Zionist propaganda”. Questions remain how she managed to leap to the top of her local council’s 18,000-strong housing list, securing a riverside apartment in months despite having no dependents.
  • Sam Tarry, MP for Ilford South. Majority: 24,101. Mouthy director of Jeremy Corbyn’s 2016 Labour Party leadership campaign. Very friendly with Angela Rayner. Failed to be properly parachuted into Hull West in 2017. In Ilford South in 2019, his opponent was abruptly suspended over an allegation of sexual harassment. With his rival ineligible due to his suspension, Tarry was selected. Known locally as ‘Stitch up Sam‘…
  • Olivia Blake, MP for Sheffield Hallam. Majority: 712. Daughter of the leader of Leeds City Council. Failed to be elected onto Labour NEC in 2013. Successfully elected with the backing of Momentum Labour’s National Policy Forum in 2018. Hard left Sheffield Councillor for six years. Supports a “National Food Service”. Resigned as a PPS in September after voting against the Veterans Bill.
  • Tahir Ali, MP for Birmingham Hall Green. Majority: 28,508. Former trade union political officer. Ali was handed a formal warning by police after he broke government restrictions by attending a funeral with up to 100 mourners at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Beth Winter, MP for Cynon Valley. Majority: 8,822. Former Trade Union official. Resigned as a PPS in September after voting against the Veterans Bill. Shouted at tea.
  • Nav Mishra, MP for Stockport. Majority: 10,039. Former trade union organiser and one of the founders of Stockport Momentum. A Labour NEC member on the JC9, then JC8 slate, who has supported Pete Willsman, Mishra sits on the NEC disputes panel.
  • Ian Byrne, MP for Liverpool West Derby. Majority: 29,984. Former Trade Union organiser. Walks around with neighbouring Liverpool socialist MPs Paula Barker and Kim Johnson. Once shared abusive comments about female politicians…
  • Paula Barker, MP for Liverpool Wavertree. Majority: 31,310. Former Trade Union convenor. Yet to speak out on the abuse that drove Luciana Berger out of the party which led to her getting the seat. In January pretended to go to a Holocaust Educational Trust event.
  • Kim Johnson, MP for Liverpool Riverside. Majority: 37,043. Yet to speak out about the abuse that drove Louise Ellman out the party. In January pretended to go to a Holocaust Educational Trust event.

All are members of the Socialist Campaign Group – now boasting 34 MPs, along with stalwarts John McDonnell, Diane Abbott, and Jeremy Corbyn. It is striking how many replaced former centrist Labour MPs from Chuka Umunna and Mike Gapes to Luciana Berger, Ann Coffey, and Chris Leslie. Now hard left cranks sit in their former seats – many cushioned by massive majorities. What a stunning success ChangeUK was…

Claudia Webbe: Britain is as Bad as Iran

Remarkable scenes in the Foreign Office Select Committee hearing yesterday afternoon when recently-sacked Labour MP Claudia Webbe suggested the UK is no worse than Iran. Asking the Foreign Secretary what he means by “Iran’s destabilising activities”, Raab pointed out the obvious:

“Supporting militia and terrorist groups around the world to either attack their host countries or Western interests, including the United Kingdom’s.”

To which Claudia jaw-droppingly responded,

In that sense, I mean, would it be argued that the UK in a sense equally has difficulties? It’s bit like… I think there’s a quaint English term called calling the kettle black. I mean, would it not be argued that we’re a bit duplicitous in that?”

Raab suggested Corbynista Claudia should take a “real long, hard look in the mirror if you’re thinking that the United Kingdom is in any way replicating, mirroring or somehow engaged in the kind of behaviour that Iran is in terms of its support for terrorism”Watch the incredible exchange in full above…

Corbynista MP Claudia Webbe Charged with Harassment Against a Woman

New intake MP and top Corbynista Claudia Webbe (Keith Vaz’s replacement in Leicester East) has been charged with harassing a woman, the Crown Prosecution Service has revealed today. The CPS revealed the news in a statement:

“The CPS has today decided that Claudia Webbe, MP for Leicester East, should be charged with an offence of harassment against one female. The CPS made the decision after receiving a file of evidence from the Metropolitan Police.

Criminal proceedings against Ms Webbe are now active and she has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”

Webbe says

“I am innocent of any wrongdoing and look forward to proving this in court. I will be vigorously defending myself against these claims.”

She will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 11 November.

UPDATE: Labour have removed the whip from Webbe, sacking her from the Labour Party

MP Compares Scrutiny over Historic Defence of Ken Livingstone to Murder of George Floyd

Former Ken Livingstone adviser Claudia Webbe MP has launched an extraordinary attack on those pointing out she wrote a letter in support of Livingstone, comparing them to the policeman who knelt on the neck of George Floyd. Twitter users pointing out the MP’s differing responses to alleged anti-black vs anti-Jewish racism were accused of “racist victimisation”…

In a remarkable Twitter exchange, those who shared an article by the Campaign Against Antisemitism on Webbe’s historic defence of Livingstone were themselves deemed “racist” by the hard-left MP. When reminded of her historic defence of Livingstone, Webbe stated

“Dear racist, I have a name – I am not an object you can so easily dismiss. I am Black, female and proud. I do not tolerate Antisemitism or racism of any kind…”

Webbe went on to claim that bringing up her past defence of Livingstone wasn’t scrutiny, likening those doing it to the killing of George Floyd by a US policeman, quoting his final words:

What scrutiny? This has been ongoing for many years now – get your knee off my neck”

She’s been comprehensively condemned from all sides of the political spectrum…

Claudia later commented, “To think this all started because I had the courage to call out the victimisation & pile-on I was experiencing simply for daring to call out the potential for institutional racism on the part of the Tory government; shame on you all; that’s why we say get your knee off our necks”. Doubling down…

Comrade Claudia Calls for Coronavirus Ceasefire

Claudia Webbe may only have been an MP for four months, it doesn’t stop her dreaming big; whilst some of her contemporaries are helping out foodbanks are asking about PPE provision, the new MP for Leicester East has her dreams set on something grander: world peace…

She’s currently asking MPs to back calls for “the urgent need for a global ceasefire in order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic” and said while it welcomed that the UK government has endorsed a call from the UN’s Secretary-General for peace, “there is no evidence of any action being taken on the ground with the RAF continuing to fly troops around the world”. The RAF actually took action against Daesh today. This is the same ‘anti-conflict’ Claudia Webbe who once delivered a speech under the pictures of Fidel Castro and Lenin

Webbe calls on the government to “use this moment to end the intolerable suffering caused by global conflicts“. Even John Lennon would have said this is a bit farfetched…

Labour MP Struggles to Defend Claim her Manifesto was ‘Popular’

In an excruciating interview on the Today Programme this morning new Labour MP, former Ken Livingstone advisor, and friend of this site Claudia Webbe repeatedly refused to back up her claim that Labour’s policies were popular. When repeatedly pressed on her claim that Labour’s 2019 manifesto was well received, despite contributing to the party’s worst electoral defeat since 1935, Webbe started talking about “mass media and newspaper corporations.” Zero lessons being learned…
