Lammy Backs Churchill, Statue Vandals were “Idiots”

There seems to be a split in the Labour leadership this morning over the Churchill statue threat level. David Lammy rejects claims that anyone seriously wants to see the statue fall, however Sir Keir last night signed the Mail on Sunday’s petition calling on Boris to “Save Sir Winston”. If Guido readers take Starmer’s side on this they can sign the petition here

Lammy: You Can’t Condemn Cummings then Go on Public Protests

In a not-so-subtle dig at his colleague Barry Gardiner, David Lammy told Question Time viewers last night that he isn’t participating in the Black Lives Matter protests, as you can’t “one week condemn Dominic Cummings for travelling up the country and the next go out” and protest.  If left-wingers who criticised Cummings’ actions shouldn’t go out and protest, Guido imagines the movement may snuff out pretty quickly…

Lammy also said he won’t be protesting as he’s in a position of responsibility, implying those who do go out are irresponsible, whilst saying he applauds those who “have taken to the streets in our country” A record number of flip flops in record time…

Lammy Accidentally Realises the Benn Act Surrenders Sovereignty

Taking to his usual high-quality, intellectual Tweeting this morning, David Lammy moaned:

The very same David Lammy who voted for the Benn Act forcing Boris to ask for any extension the EU grants; who voted for the Letwin Amendment that closed a loophole of the Benn Act; and who eight days ago actively travelled to Brussels to beg the EU for a delay beyond October 31, is now claiming it’s Brexit’s fault that Britain has failed to take back control. Next he’ll be calling the bill an act of surrender…

Guardian’s Chicken Shop ‘Racism’ Hypocrisy

Lefties led by Twitter rent-a-gob David Lammy are have all gone clucking mad at the news the Home Office are using takeaway chicken shop boxes to advertise anti-knife crime messages. The insinuation is that the Department is somehow making a offensive connection between knife crime, black people and the racist trope of liking fried chicken. Of course a brief look at the actual hard facts behind the move completes undermines the hysteria…

Inevitably both the Guardian and Independent have jumped on the bandwagon, which is funny because just three days ago both publications covered a report uncovering how children are being “lured into crime by ‘chicken shop gangs’ offering free food“. Funny how Lammy didn’t accuse them of being racist then.

Either the Guardian and Indy editors have very short memories, or they’re just cynically stirring up outrage…

Clegg: ‘Absolutely No Evidence’ Russia Influenced Brexit

Carole Cadwalladr and David Lammy have been spluttering furiously into their cornflakes all morning after Nick Clegg told the Today Programme that there was “absolutely no evidence” that Russia or Cambridge Analytica influenced Brexit. Clegg said “we have a duty to explain fact from some of the allegations that have been made”. Clearly not a duty that Carole has ever felt bound by herself

“Much though I understand why people want to reduce that eruption in British politics to some kind of plot or conspiracy, some use of new social media through opaque means, I’m afraid the roots to British euroscepticism go very, very deep…”

Never mind the fact that the official report from the Information Commissioner’s Office already crushed all of Carole’s grand conspiracies about Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and Brexit, raising questions about her pet whistleblower Chris Wylie instead. Clegg hasn’t triggered anyone this badly since tuition fees…

If she wants to start addressing disinformation on social media she could start with her own Observer ‘scoop’ over the weekend in which she deliberately mistranscribes a video of Steve Bannon talking about Boris. Bannon says “we went back and forth over text”, instead Carole transcribes this as “back and forth over the text” which then forms the crux of her story. The same people who’d be the first to say Bannon is a pathological liar are now taking an entirely unsubstantiated boast from him as the gospel truth before distorting it even further themselves…
