Corbynistas were approached this week with anti-Semitic quotes to see if they think the person who said them is fit for office. But there’s a twist! When the Labour activists were told the quotes were said by Boris they said he was unfit for office. Upon being told the truth their squirming is excruciating…
Corbyn has engulfed himself in another firey row which is over the origins of his new customised suit – pin-striped with the phrase “For the many” – he was spotted wearing this weekend in Whitby. It’s a real blazer…
The (Saville) row has been sparked over the origins of his suit and whether the Bradford-based tailors it came from and whether they are avoiding tax.
What do we know about this firm?
- From Bradford-based IK Collections, owned by Imran Khan
- Khan’s company is listed as dormant on Companies House, despite Khan claiming his firm is “massively busy“
- Dormant companies don’t have to pay tax
- Khan also claimed to have established his own events management company, Elite Events and Elite Models in 2009 – which doesn’t exist on the companies register
- Khan also launched the charity Khan Can People’s Charity – this similarly doesn’t exist on the Charities Commission register
Unfortunately Corbyn is yet to listen to Cameron’s advice and put on a proper suit…
As the leaders of the free world come to London today for NATO’s 70th birthday summit, Guido has compiled a short message of support from the Leader of the Labour Party. As always, on the side of the West and its allies…
As Guido reported yesterday, Corbyn has a history of appearing on the Islam Channel – who have been censured twice by Ofcom, and fined over £30,000, for supporting marital rape and violence against women. During one interview, Corbyn said two men convicted for raising funds for terrorism ‘haven’t done anything wrong’…
It has now emerged Corbyn’s links to the channel continued well into his time as Labour leader – and after he will have been aware of the channel’s number of Ofcom censures. In 2018, the channel was once again disciplined for hate speech, including “expressions of hatred based on intolerance of Jewish people”, warning that the channel’s broadcast “had the potential to promote, encourage and incite such intolerance among viewers” after it labelled Jewish people as “tyrannical”.
In June this year, Corbyn was then billed as the “Keynote Speaker” for the Islam Channel‘s Eid Gala Dinner, which he attended and thanked the channel for “the contribution [they] make to our society”.
Corbyn wasn’t alone at the dinner, however, and was joined by such luminaries as Sir Iqbal Sacranie – who likened Hamas suicide bombers to Mandela and Gandhi – and ‘comedian’ Tez Ilyas, who has appeared at multiple events for organisations connected to Hamas.
You’ll never guess which TV channel was also invited to ask a question at Labour’s ‘race and faith’ manifesto this month…
With a chorus from Nigel Farage this is something completely different form the usual political rap. Some bare knuckle imagery in the video…
In news that sounds more like a Daily Mash article, a Labour MP who previously posed for a photoshoot with Hamas has spoken out against Labour’s inability to deal with its Antisemitism article. No, it isn’t Jeremy Corbyn – he would never admit such a problem…
Andy Slaughter has told Hammersmith Today that his party was “complacent” on tackling Antisemitism. A fair point, but not one Slaughter is totally unconnected to, given just last year it was revealed he and Corbyn travelled to Israel in 2010 to meet senior Hamas officials. Hamas, of course, a group that wants to wipe Israel off the map and murder Jewish people worldwide…
It has been uncovered that between 2013 and 2015 Corbyn made several appearances on Islam Channel, years after it had been censured by Ofcom for encouraging violence against women and advocating marital rape.
The broadcasting regulator also ruled the channel broke broadcasting code after describing women who wear perfume outside the home as “prostitutes”. All these cases happened well before Corbyn made his multiple appearances…
The Channel was also fined £30,000 in 2007 for similar breaches, which were described by a Quilliam Foundation report as “reactionary, intolerant messages”.
According to his register of interests, unlike his multiple appearances on Iran’s State TV, Corbyn didn’t take a fee for his interviews. So keen was he to appear on the channel…
Talking about people going from Britain to fight with ISIS in Syria, Corbyn criticised the Government’s hard-line approach, calling the decision to deny Jihadis who fight for ISIS a right of return “strange”.
“The British Government’s response has been to try to make it impossible for them to travel, to restrict their ability to travel, to take upon themselves the ability to remove passports, and strangely to deny people the right of return, which is legally a very questionable decision by the British Government”
This is of course the same Jeremy Corbyn who was “not happy” with shoot to kill policy, and said ISIS leader should have been put on trial instead of killed. No wonder he doesn’t want to talk about counter-terrorism policy…
Under the IHRA definition of Antisemitism – which was accepted by the Labour Party in full – this video from Iran’s state broadcaster Press TV shows Jeremy Corbyn implicitly questioning Israel’s right to exist, is anti-Semitic. No wonder Corbyn resisted adopting the IHRA definitions. Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry has said there is “no place in Labour for people who deny Israel’s right to exist”. Will he face any disciplinary measures..?
This is on top of:
- Inviting a pro-Hamas group to Downing Street this week.
- Laying a wreath for Munich Massacre terrorists then trying to cover it up.
- Saying an anti-Semitic mural should stay up.
- Calling Hamas and Hezbollah his friends.
- Refusing to apologise to the Jewish community worried by his leadership of the Labour Party.
Jeremy Corbyn has more than fulfilled the criteria to be booted out his own party for anti-Semitism…
And, of course, Corbyn’s ‘Stop the War Coalition‘ being against wars with every country and regime, no matter how barbaric, other than the Jewish State. Corbyn didn’t step down as Chair of the
Start Stop the War Coalition until after he became Labour leader…

Labour has spent this election campaign claiming the NHS isn’t safe under the Tories. They always do and they always will; As the infamous Private Eye graphic makes clear…
Can voters trust Corbyn and McDonnell with the NHS – a would-be PM who in 1999 outed himself as an anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist when signing an EDM linking vaccinations and autism. It went as far as calling on the Government to “set up and monitor a register of autistic children“. Corbyn at least didn’t blame this on the Jews…
The conspiracy was based on a paper by ex-physician Andrew Wakefield who was later completely discredited and struck off by the General Medical Council in 2010 for serious professional conduct. This absurd conspiracy is far from the only one pushed by crackpot Corbyn, who has also:
- Suspected the “hand of Israel” in the destabilisation of the Middle East
- Backed Russia’s view in the Salisbury Poisoning
- Defended that conspiratorial antisemitic mural
- Blamed a think tank staffed predominantly by Jewish Americans, ‘The Project for a New American Century’ for wars in Afghanistan and Iraq
There are still two weeks before the election for Corbyn to claim Elvis is still alive or that the moon is made of cheese…
Guido thought he’d factcheck Corbyn’s claims on what the unredacted documents say – and it turns out there was quite a lot of contortion on Corbyn’s part to interpret the documents as menacingly as he presented them. There’s already a lot of push back from the Department for Trade pointing out the documents were not from trade discussions where things were agreed, rather they were from the working groups in which both the UK and US set out their starting positions for any future trade talks.
Corbyn: “The US and the UK have already finished the discussion on lengthening patents for medicines, longer patents can mean only one thing: more expensive drugs”
Document references to patent law:
Corbyn also specifically pointed to page 51 of the second document, claiming it says “patent issues… [around] NHS access to generic drugs will be a key consideration. Deliberately missing key words and changing the meaning of what was discussed. The paragraph says the UK is in difficult territory here because of disagreements over this area.
The NHS Being ‘On the Table’
“Labour has been warning that NHS services will also be on the table in trade talks for a sellout deal with Trump… the documents show Trump was right.” “These documents make clear that for the US – to quote page 41 of the third meeting report – “everything is included unless something is specifically excluded”. They want “total market access as the baseline assumption of a trade negotiation”
“But surely you can’t believe that British officials would demand the NHS be excluded. Apparently not. In fact, on behalf of the Conservative Government officials reassured their counterparts that the US should expect the UK to be a liberalising influence, and that together they could fly the green flag for service liberalisation.”
Page 41 of the third meeting report – a 77 page report that mentions the NHS once – does include the phrase “everything is included unless something is specifically excluded”, in the context of the US explaining their approach to free trade
It certainly wasn’t a concession from the UK negotiating team. As the Department for Trade makes clear, no agreements could have been made as these meetings were working groups to set out each others’ stalls – not negotiations.
For working groups discussing trade, the NHS is barely mentioned in these documents. Including all 451 pages, the NHS is mentioned 4 times, once regarding defending the NHS’s access to cheaper drugs for patients (to spell it out – that’s a good thing). One sentence even spells out the US were “Sensitive to the particular sensitivities with the health sector in the UK”:
Within an hour, the key facets of Corbyn’s big announcement have fallen flat…
UPDATE: The Conservatives have come out with a response that doesn’t mince its words:
“Jeremy Corbyn is getting desperate and is out-and-out lying to the public about what these documents contain. He has always believed in conspiracy theories – which is why he has failed to crack down on the scourge of antisemitism in his party. This is the man that has caused huge offence by blaming an imaginary ‘Zionist lobby’ for society’s ills and now he has decided to smear UK officials too.
“People should not believe a word that he says – this stunt is simply a smokescreen for the fact that he has no plan for Brexit and that he has been forced to admit that he wants to increase taxes for millions of families.
“As we have consistently made clear: the NHS will not be on the table in any future trade deal and the price that the NHS pays for drugs will not be on the table. This sort of conspiracy theory fuelled nonsense is not befitting of the leader of a major political party
The Mirror’s splash today is expected to be the basis for Corbyn’s NHS speech alleging that the UK somehow wants to raise drug prices as a result of a US trade deal. The opposite of what trade deals do… nobody does a trade deal to raise prices.
The FOI research for the Labour/Mirror story was carried out by the Global Justice campaign group. They’re run by Nick Dearden, who is a cranky anti-Israel obsessive with some pretty nutty views…
Dearden is an anti-Israel obsessive whose main objective to a trade deal with the US seems to be that the US would want us to discourage people from boycotting Israeli products – something that is already in the Tory manifesto.
His other views include having:
- Claimed that former chief rabbi Jonathan Sacks accusing Corbyn of being an antisemite was ‘an attempt to silence those speaking up for Palestine’.
- Said jihadist groups like ISIS shouldn’t be banned from the UK
- Said antisemitism was used to ‘silence any MP who dares criticise Israel’
- Singled out George Soros as an ‘extremist’ that caused the Greek financial crisis
- Praised corrupt Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman, claiming that he ‘speaks for me’
- Dismissed Hamas’ opposition to a Jewish state
- Defended anti-semite Lib Dem peer Jenny Tonge, claiming she was ‘sacked for telling it like it is on Israel’
- In 2016, Dearden wrote an article praising Venezuela’s ‘foundation for a truly democratic food system’, and that it has ‘lit a beacon of hope’. In the three years since Venezuela has seen widespread famine, starvation and malnutrition…
Dearden’s main objection to a trade deal with the US seems to be that it will make it harder to boycott Israel. He has also said that criticism of Corbyn over antisemitism by former chief rabbi Jonathan Sacks was ‘an attempt to silence those speaking up for Palestine’.
Other highlights include praise for Venezuela’s ‘democratic food system’, defending Hamas, calling George Soros an ‘extremist’ who caused the Greek financial crisis, and opposing banning ISIS from the UK. Dearden has said he is attending the Corbyn event…
Jeremy Corbyn announced today that he would invite the Muslim Association of Britain to Downing Street if elected, specifically name-checking a group that published the anti-semitic, blood libel, and was until recently led by Azzam Tamimi, a man with close links to Hamas in Gaza, who repeatedly declared that “we are all Hamas”.[…] Read the rest
Lobby hacks report that the Labour press office sent out an op note to journalists yesterday inviting them to accredit for the launch of the party’s race and faith manifesto this morning with Jeremy Corbyn, Dawn Butler and Diane Abbott. They have told there won’t be any questions.[…] Read the rest
John McDonnell said this morning “We’re a democratic party, which means our members decide our policies.” Jeremy Corbyn not so long ago declared too that he is “a servant of the people and the party”, saying “if Conference comes to a decision, whatever it is, I’m there with my party.” He spent years decrying New Labour for disrespecting conference – the sovereign decision-making body of the Labour Party.[…] Read the rest
Just take a second to note the difference in tone from today when Corbyn was electioneering in Birmingham and in the past when he was asked to condemn what the IRA did to Brummies. Corbyn’s friends in the IRA unleashed carnage by bombing two Birmingham pubs on this day, 45 years…[…] Read the rest
