Labour HQ Trolls Corbyn

Labour have sent out a press release with a quote from Jeremy Corbyn calling on Theresa May to “come out of hiding and face the public”. The author of the press release is very naughty:

Speaking at Labour’s HQ this morning, Jeremy Corbyn said: 

“Theresa May is hiding from the public…”

See what they did there. More proof for the Corbynistas that HQ is not exactly onside in this election…

Corbyn Not Sure If Assad Regime Carried Out Chemical Attack

Jeremy Corbyn tells the BBC that inspectors need “space” to “make sure we know who did that terrible chemical weapons attack” in Syria. Britain, America and France all say there is no doubt the Assad regime carried out the attack. Corbyn doesn’t seem so sure…

Corbyn Is For Turning

A quick thinking aide ducks and dives to tell Jez to give his speech facing the television cameras…

BBC’s ‘Community Nurse’ is Prolific Corbynista Campaigner

Yesterday evening the BBC News Channel interviewed nurse Danielle Tiplady live in her NHS uniform. The on-screen caption described her only as a “community nurse“. Tiplady was highly critical of the government on NHS workers’ pay: “I know one friend for example who’s being forced to sell her flat because she cannot survive on a nurses’s salary.” The implication was that this is an ordinary nurse speaking on behalf of her colleagues…

Tiplady’s appearance was subsequently clipped and shared on Jeremy Corbyn’s official social media channels. The optics of an ordinary, uniformed nurse criticising the government would, of course, be irresistible for Labour. But neither the BBC nor Team Jez mentioned that Tiplady is far from your average nurse. While softly spoken on the news, Tiplady is, in fact, a vociferous hard-left campaigner…

  • Until recently Tiladay’s Twitter account used the name “Danielle vote Labour”.
  • Her bio still contains a heart emoji for the Labour Party.
  • She has addressed dozens of protest rallies where her favourite chant is “Tories out!”.
  • Addressed a CND rally alongside Corbyn while a student nurse at Kings College London.
  • Writes for “revolutionary socialist website” Counterfire.
  • Writes for the communist Morning Star.
  • She is a leader of the “sack Jeremy Hunt” Bursary or Bust campaign.

And here she is with the man himself:

The Corbynistas forever claim the Beeb are biased against them, yet Auntie didn’t mention any of this on the news last night…

May to Corbyn: “You Are Not Up to the Job”

Starmer on Corbyn: Then and Now

This morning was the first time Guido has watched Sir Keir Starmer give a speech. Hopefully it will be the last. His drab, dreary performance does not bode well for his #Starmer2017 leadership bid, it is remarkable that this bore is the second favourite to be the next Labour leader. Today he asked voters to believe that only a Labour government with Jeremy Corbyn as PM can get Britain a good Brexit deal:

“The only way to stop [a hard Brexit] and to build a fairer Britain is to elect a Labour Government. A Labour Government who will reset our approach to Brexit, rebuild relations with the EU and make sure that jobs, the economy and rights come first.”

Really? Starmer should listen to the words of a Shadow minister who resigned in June 2016, in the days following the referendum, because he did not believe Corbyn could negotiate a decent deal:

“It is clear that [Labour] needs a much louder voice on the critical issues of renegotiating the UK’s place in the world and mitigating the damaging impact of our exit from the EU. It is simple untenable now to suggest that we can offer an effective opposition without a change of leader.”

Who wrote those words? Keir Starmer…

New Tory Attack Ad Hits Corbyn on Defence

Guido brings you the first Tory attack advert on Corbyn on defence this election. Short and sweet, it hits Jez hard on Nato, Trident, shoot-to-kill and his call to abolish the army. Turns out 23 seconds of footage is all you need to show he isn’t fit to lead. A taste of things to come…

Nuclear Fallout: Corbyn Slapped Down By Shadow Defence Sec

Jeremy Corbyn has been slapped down by his Shadow Defence Secretary after he suggested he would never use the nuclear deterrent. Add this to the Communist Party endorsing Labour and that’s the day won for the Tories without Theresa May having to lift a finger…

Corbyn and Sturgeon at Same Event Today

The Tories’ main, barely believable attack line this election is that if you vote Labour you’ll get a “coalition of chaos” with the SNP. So, naturally, Jeremy Corbyn is heading up to Scotland to address the Scottish TUC conference this afternoon, when Nicola Sturgeon will be there giving her own speech. The SNP say there are “no plans” for Jez and Nicola to meet, but imagine the reaction in CCHQ if there was a chance corridor brush by. Incidentally, while Jez is up there the Scottish TUC congress will be voting on a motion to “reiterate its opposition to Trident renewal”…

An aside, senior puerile Tories have taken to using an acronym for their election attack line. They have been privately joking, “If you vote Labour, you’ll get Corbyn’s CoC”…

Corbyn Won’t Say If He’d Kill ISIS Leader

Here’s the headline from Marr: Corbyn won’t say if he would sanction a drone strike to kill the leader of ISIS if permission was sought by military chiefs. Jez did however clarify: “I am not a defender or supporter of ISIS in any way…”

Corbyn Suggests Labour Could Scrap Trident

Corbyn reopens the old Trident wounds, suggesting a Labour government would look again at its renewal and refusing to say if it will be in his manifesto. Paging Nia Griffith…

Corbyn on ISIS:

Jeremy Corbyn:

“I’m not a defender or supporter of ISIS.”

Tulip Flip Flop

Kilburn MP Tulip Siddiq’s flip flopping on Jeremy Corbyn really does stretch the realms of credibility. First Tulip nominated him for leader. Then she slagged him off in her local paper and voted for Owen Smith. Then she accepted a job on Corbyn’s frontbench and posed smiling in pictures with her new boss. Then she resigned. Now she is sharing tweets about “What should you do if you support Labour but can’t stand Jeremy Corbyn”. Make your mind up Tulip… 

Momentum: ‘Put a Tenner on Corbyn to Shorten the Odds’

Signs of an advanced strategy in play on campaign day three from Corbynistas at Momentum:

“The odds are against Labour, but if enough of us bet a tenner on Labour to get the most seats or Corbyn to be the next PM, the odds will shorten and the narrative will begin to change.”

The remarkable plan was formulated by a clueless London Momentum group. More money in the market to lay against…

Fallon on Corbyn and Putin

Michael Fallon deployed early on:

“Russia will be watching Labour’s feebleness that Jeremy Corbyn has not supported this deployment… Putin would certainly welcome feebler British defence.”

Corbyn’s Trump Playbook Speech in 30 Seconds

Attacking the media, “failing elites” and the “rigged system” – Corbyn’s campaign launch this morning was straight out of the Trump playbook. Jez had clearly had his Weetabix, he was energetic, punchy, pumped up and even Dan Hodges reckons he did alright. It was better than a Miliband speech…

Corbyn Crowd Boos and Shouts Down ITV Question

The first Corbynista media boos of the campaign, for ITV’s Libby Weiner who asked Jez if he was part of an “Islington elite”. Corbyn’s response: “I am very proud to represent Islington and it’s true, there are many people who drink cappuccino every day…”

Labour NEC Swerves Motion for Corbyn ‘Loyalty Pledge’

A motion to require every Labour candidate to pledge allegiance to Jeremy Corbyn was ignored yesterday at Labour’s NEC, Guido can reveal. Corbynista NEC member Pete Willsman proposed that every Labour candidate should sign a formal pledge of allegiance to Jeremy Corbyn during the selection process. A source tells Guido:

“Votes were not taken at the NEC meeting. It kept the Corbynistas down. There will be no requirement for candidates to sign a formal Corbyn pledge of allegiance to Jeremy. The sense is that the left is losing the internal battle for control.”

Can you imagine Wes Streeting and John Woodcock pledging that? They would have refused and made it even more politically embarrassing. Self-defeating mindless Corbynista amateurism…

Will Tories Drop MOAB on Corbyn?

It has long been assumed that the Tories have a ton of dirt of Jeremy Corbyn that they were holding back for the election. That somewhere in the archives at the bottom of a filing cabinet in CCHQ sits a dossier of new revelations about Corbyn’s links to various terrorists, extremists and all round wrong ‘uns. There has even been talk that the Tories would drop a “MOAB” – Mother of All Bombs – on Corbyn with weeks to go. Guido understands the MOAB isn’t quite as big as has been hyped, and that the Tories believe most of Corbyn’s IRA / Hamas links have already been factored in. There are however two or three front page newspaper stories ready to go over the next 50 days. Not so much a MOAB to wipe Jez out, more a couple of well-timed mortars to cause damage tactically during the campaign…

Corbyn Gets Beers In Early: Son Plans Jezza Ale

It may only be the first week of a gruelling election campaign but Jeremy Corbyn’s son Tommy is getting the beers in early. He is in discussions with a friend to brew a special ‘Corbyn’s Courage’ India Pale Ale, which will feature a picture of his father on the bottle.[…] Read the rest

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
