Bridgen tells Dan Hodges after Brady reveals Rishi is the new PM:
“I’m off to get that letter in”.
Political activist and author Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, who mentored Sky employees on “allyship and psychological safety” just last month, has declared that those “offended” by taking the knee are “subhuman“, and that the Mail on Sunday’s Dan Hodges “is a Racist Apologist epitomising the inferiority complex of white supremacy”. No doubt her contributions to Sky’s “Unity Programme” were greatly appreciated…
This isn’t the first time Mos-Shogbamimu’s pushed the boundaries of what it means to promote psychological safety. A quick browse through her Twitter profile shows that she’s called Priti Patel a “Racial Gatekeeper Extraordinaire”, suggested that “exempting the Queen & Household from race discrimination laws is an atrocity”, and even warned her own followers that “for your own mental health, don’t try my patience.” Always be kind and tolerant of others, unless they disagree with you.
In Dan Hodges’s Mail on Sunday column a senior Labour Party source suggested Labour was “haemorrhaging votes among Muslim voters” because of what “Keir has been doing on antisemitism”. Now, however, Guido suspects that’s not the only reason some voters don’t like Labour’s Batley & Spen candidate. Messages which have been circulated on local community WhatsApp groups warn that some have “shamelessly brought the Labour Candidate (who is openly Lesbian) to the Masjids’ (the house of Allah) for votes.”
The message further condemns people who have been “promoting an MP that could potentially harm the Imaan of our children” and might “cost the corruption of our future generations”. Guido wonders who is spreading these anti-lesbian messages and cultivating such a toxic campaign…
Guido sources have also said Batley & Spen constituents have expressed concern over Keir Starmer’s Jewish wife. It is not clear who is spreading this information round the community…
Keir Starmer has already pre-emptively distanced himself from this nasty by-election campaign, clearly worried that Leadbeater isn’t cutting through. Perhaps if she focused on local issues instead of Israel and Palestine, she’d have more success…

Some absolute classics from Fleet Street’s finest over the weekend. The usually sagacious John Rentoul’s Saturday column for the Indy declared Amber Rudd to be in a “surprisingly strong position”:
Dan Hodges at 5:13pm yesterday evening was almost onto something with his view that the latest Guardian story “supports Rudd”:
Top prize however goes to Paul Mason, who confidently tweeted at 9.56pm: “It’s become easier to imagine the end of the world than a Tory minister resigning for probably lying.”
News of Rudd’s departure broke just minutes later. Mason immediately fired off another 20 tweets to bury the take and cover his modesty. Peak neoliberalism? Peak punditry…
