Jeremy “Doesn’t Do Dinners”

“Jeremy doesn’t do dinners”, says Emily Thornberry, defending the Labour leader’s snub of the Balfour centenary dinner, a decision praised by Hamas. When Lady Nugee was asked why Corbyn didn’t show, she explained:

“He doesn’t turn up for dinners. When there was a dinner for the king of Spain — I turned up. The president of Colombia, who is a longstanding friend — I turned up. He got ‘Politician of the Year’ from the Spectator magazine — he sent [Shadow Home Secretary] Diane [Abbott]. He doesn’t do dinners.”

Yeah, right. Let’s take a look at Jez’s dinner diary…

  • Pizza with pro-Assad Srebrenica genocide denier Marcus Papadopoulos;
  • Lamb kofte with terror-apologists at the Stop The War Coalition, where Corbyn was guest of honour;
  • Dined with Jackie Walker’s partner Graham Bash at the height of the anti-semitism scandal surrounding her;
  • Dinner with Sinn Fein, alongside Gerry Adams and IRA bomber Gerry Kelly

But he “doesn’t do dinners”…

Royal Mail’s Tweets Deliver Truth About Nationalisation

Corbyn tweeted a call to people to “rise up” against privatised Royal Mail’s shareholders, claiming it was suffering under-investment as a result of privatisation. The revolutionary rhetoric shows Corbyn is ideologically blind to free enterprise – profits are a bad thing in his socialist mindset. “Shareholders are top-hatted baddies, workers are downtrodden goodies.”

Something great happened yesterday: unlike many firms under political attack, Royal Mail didn’t shy away with a boring press release to the FT, they hit back with facts on social media, tweeting truth bullets:

We are proud to be one of the most widely held stocks in the UK. 20% of our business is owned by our employees and small investors.

Royal Mail is one of very few companies to pay more in pension contributions than dividends.

Corbyn plans to renationalise firms with compensation, if any, decided by John McDonnell. Firms owned by everyone who has a pension, firms that thrive in the private sector, firms like Royal Mail that are owned in large part by the firm’s workers. The reality is many firms have just had a near-death experience at the snap election. It is time they started fighting back instead of gawping from the sidelines, because be in no doubt, Marxist McDonnell will nationalise them. Shareholders should be demanding action from their boards to defend shareholders’ interests. Corbyn and McDonnell want to turn Britain into Venezuela without the sunshine, it will be a dark day for pensioners and investors if they do.

Salmond: If Russia Today Is Good Enough For Corbyn, It’s Good Enough For Me

Alex Salmond has defended his new show on Russia Today by noting that Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Diane Abbott have all appeared on and supported the Putin propaganda channel. Remember when Jezza told his followers to “try Russia Today”

First guest on Salmond’s show is Tory MP Crispin Blunt, which makes sense given his dubious foreign policy views…

PMQs Sketch: Were Her Strepsils Swapped for Performance Enhancers?

At Prime Minister’s Questions, at six minutes past midday, Theresa May almost began to dance. Jeremy Bernard Corbyn had just tried to catch her off-guard – rather like a mugger – by leading on London’s crime wave. That is, the plague of midnight stabbing and acid-ing unleashed by New Labour’s lost children. Cue Theresa: “He might not have noticed but the Police and Crime Commissioner in London is the Mayor…”

As soon as she said “mayor”, Theresa May started to flick her wrist back and forth, finger outstretched, pointing between the government and opposition benches. This is a new action in a limited repertoire of gestures, a far cry from the ‘nothing has changed maniacal double-hand wave’. Turning side on, she paused, then said: “is he one of ours or one of yours?”

Unusually, her backbenchers roared with glee. Damian Green raised a smile wider than a pornstar’s legs. And then it really started to happen.  Riding the crest of the wave, as stand-up comics call it, Theresa May herself smiled and said: “perhaps the leader of the Labour Party thinks the mayor’s not Labour enough for him.”

Had her Strepsils been swapped for some banned performance enhancing drug? How long could this near-symphonic high last for the Prime Minister? She had succeed in delighting the House more with this attacking first answer than she has at any parliamentary appearance since the election. Put more of this in her Benylin!

Corbyn’s Record on Iran

Jeremy Corbyn says on the front page of the Observer that Boris is “shaming our nation” over Iran. Is this a wind up? Let’s take a look at Jezza’s record on Iran:

  • Accepted £20,000 for appearing on the Iranian state TV channel Press TV, even after the channel had filmed and broadcast a torture victim’s confession
  • Agreed with a Press TV caller that Britain’s national broadcaster were “Zionist liars”
  • Attended a Press TV / Khomeinist event just 11 months ago, while he was leader of the opposition, posing for photos with an extremist author
  • Attended the Iranian regime’s Al-Quds Day event calling for the destruction of Israel
  • Attended event during which the Iranian regime’s British representatives called for a boycott of Marks and Spencer and others in attendance chanted about gassing Tel Aviv
  • Dismissed western criticism of the Iranian regime as American desire for oil: “It does not take a late night conspiracy theorist to look at the map of the region and see where oil lies, where pipelines go, where the US bases are and which countries they do not have any influence over. That alone should make anyone very wary of the attacks on Iran”
  • Claimed Iran didn’t want nukes: “Iran has a civil nuclear power programme, which in law it is entitled to. This has been transformed into a nuclear weapon threat by the very power that has its own massive capacity to destroy, the USA”

Please, Jezza, tell us more about “shaming our nation”…

Jezza’s Favourite Magazine Attacks Nationalisation

Completely unsurprisingly, Jezza is “a borderline trainspotter” with a self-confessed “zany”  passion for Britain’s railways. When he’s not trying to make a political point by sitting on the train floor he’s he’s getting abuse hurled at him by a carriage full of travelling football fans…

But here’s news sure to make the Labour leader run out of steam: Jezza’s favourite trainspotting magazine Rail carries a long read ripping his headline rail nationalisation policy to shreds. The piece, ‘Nationalisation – a dead end argument’, signals Labour policy is just not the ticket:

“Governments are not very good at delivering public services themselves -there is a tendency to meddling, short-termism, starvation of funding, and nakedly politicised decisions every time things get difficult. Much better to set out the framework of what you want to achieve over a period of time, and then contract with a focused and properly incentivised company to deliver your requirements.”

In fact, the article lists so many objections to Corbyn’s rail plan that it’s difficult to keep track. All put forward by an author of considerable station: a former top railway executive who oversaw a government-run line. With critics like this, how can Jezza just carriage on regardless with the policy?

MEND Boss Hints At Corbyn’s Hidden Views

When he wasn’t busy suspending the whip from sex pest MPs, Jeremy Corbyn found time to attend a MEND event in Parliament last week. MEND brands itself as an ‘anti-Islamophobia think tank’, but has been described as a group of “Islamists posing as civil libertarians”. The evidence for this? The litany of hate spewed by senior MEND figures, who have praised Al-Qaeda, attended speeches by al-Qaeda hate preachers, and attempted to justify the murder of British troops. Despite this, and notwithstanding the fact that other MPs pulled out of the event, Corbyn turned up and gave the keynote speech. How deep are the connections between Corbyn and MEND?

Meet Azad Ali, formerly a director of MEND and now the group’s Head of Community Engagement. Ali denied the Westminster Bridge attack was an act of terror, calling it a “lone wolf” event. He has written of his love of Al-Qaeda operative Anwar Al-Awlaki (a terrorist connected to a string of plots and attacks including 9/11, the Fort Hood shooting, the underwear bomb plot). He was suspended from his civil service job at the Treasury after he attempted to justify the murder of British troops. He has also admitted attending speeches by Al-Qaeda hate preacher Abu Qatada (spiritual guide to 9/11 hijack leader Mohamed Atta). Quite a CV, and the sort of person you’d think a party leader would run a mile from…

But check out this speech Ali gave in praise of Jeremy Corbyn just this summer. Ali hints that Corbyn’s own views are more extreme than the Labour leader owns up to in public:

“I actually applaud Jeremy Corbyn for giving a break to the Muslim community, you know he took a lot of the blame and flack. You know when he got called a ‘terrorist sympathiser’ and all of this kind of stuff I was thinking, you know, I’ve known Jeremy from before he became leader and I was thinking you know what, wait until they find other things about him.

“And they tried to smear him day in, day out… but not only that, recently after Manchester, what did he say? ‘We need to talk about foreign policy’. So the opening is there for us.”

“Wait until they find other things about him”…

Will Corbyn Sign Motion Condemning Communist Murders?

Andrew Rosindell has tabled an extremely sound Early Day Motion countering the hard-left’s celebration of the Russian revolution centenary. The motion will remind the House – and the Labour front bench in particular – of the murderous consequences of that fateful ‘revolution’ which ushered in decades of oppression and misery for millions. It reads:

“That this House notes, with great regret, that 7 November 2017 marks 100 years since Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution which subsequently demonstrated, time and again, that Communism is a murderous political ideology, incompatible with liberty, self-government and the dignity of human beings, and injurious to the national, ethnic and religious traditions of the world’s peoples; further notes that Communism subjected millions to theft, surveillance, terror and ultimate destruction; acknowledges that the cultural, political and economic legacy of Soviet Communism still negatively affects vast numbers of people today; and accordingly believes that the crimes of Communism, together with those of its mirror image, National Socialism, must forever serve as a warning to humanity of the terrible consequences of totalitarianism in all its forms.”

Will Corbyn put his name to this? Will any moderate Labour MPs dare to?

Top Corbynista Bragged: ‘Being Mates With Corbyn Gets You Closer to Women’

Yesterday the Observer reported:

“The Observer has been told by several sources that another Corbyn ally bragged about how his friendship with the Labour leader allowed him to get closer to women. There were also multiple claims that he asked a senior female party figure whether she would “twerk against him”. However no official complaint has been made to the party.”

Guido has been told several stories about a senior Corbyn ally who is accused of sexually harassing women. Staff are too scared to complain. He bragged last year that he uses his relationship with Jezza to get close to young women – and was reprimanded by a senior party figure for making the comment at the time. Sources say he keeps asking young female Labour members to go clubbing with him. The NEC is writing a harassment policy in an effort to clamp down on this…

Corbyn Suggests Queen Should Apologise

Hang on a minute, does this mean Corbyn thinks McDonnell should apologise for his pension investments being managed offshore?

Corbyn Promoted Hopkins AFTER Sexual Harassment Complaints

December 2015: 24 year old Ava Etemadzadeh contacts the Labour whips office to make sexual harassment allegations against Kelvin Hopkins.

January 2016: Jeremy Corbyn’s office receives a written complaint from a regional Labour representative detailing the allegations against Hopkins.

June 2016: Corbyn promotes Kelvin Hopkins to the Shadow Cabinet.

November 2017: Labour suspends Hopkins.

This looks pretty bad for Labour and Jez…

Corbyn and Labour MPs Host MEND in Parliament

In all the Fallon excitement, Corbyn should not be allowed to get away with his attendance at the MEND event in parliament last night. There’s no two ways about it, MEND is an extremist-linked group whose senior figures have praised Al-Qaeda, attended speeches by al-Qaeda hate preachers, and justified the murder of British troops. Last week the respected Henry Jackson Society think tank dubbed MEND “Islamists posing as civil libertarians”. Tory MPs pulled out of last night’s event when details of MEND’s extremist links were published in the media over the weekend. Yet still Corbyn agreed to be the keynote speaker. Labour MPs Wes Streeting, Stephen Kinnock, Naz Shah, Kate Green and Afzal Khan all attended. Corbyn’s face is now proudly splashed across MEND’s Twitter page.

MEND is a seriously nasty group. Jez and the Labour MPs who attended will have seen the reports about them over the weekend. And they still turned up. It’ll be missed as sleaze takes centre stage, but this is grim stuff from Labour…

Red Robbo Dead

Infamous trade unionist Derek ‘Red Robbo’ Robinson died yesterday, aged 90. Red Robbo was one of the best-known trade unionists of the 70s, and was involved in around 500 disputes at British Leyland’s Longbridge works. Guido would have said that after Thatcher we’d never see his like again. If Corbyn gets in however…

Top Corbynistas Celebrate “Inspirational” Russian Revolution

One of Jeremy Corbyn’s closest advisers will headline a hard-left celebration of the “inspirational” Russian Revolution this weekend. Andrew Murray, Unite’s Chief of Staff, who worked in the Labour leader’s office during the election, will deliver a speech at a London conference convened by the “Russian Revolution Centenary Committee”. Other figures close to Corbyn set to speak include ASLEF hardliner Tosh McDonald, who shared a platform with the Labour leader at last year’s Durham Miners’ Gala. Richard Leonard, MSP, Labour’s spokesperson on the economy in the Scottish Parliament, will also speak.

The “Russian Revolution Centenary Committee” said:

“A range of bodies have come together to commemorate this historic event which continues to be an inspiration to millions of people today.”

Meanwhile, Labour clubs up and down the country have been gripped by an outbreak of red fever. Whitstable Labour called the Russian Revolution “a watershed event in the struggle”:

A Carlisle Labour event, “commemorating 100 years of the Russian Revolution”, was publicised online by Momentum:

Top Corbynista Paul Mason this week called the Russian Revolution a “beacon to the rest of humanity”. Mason wrote:

“Though I reject Bolshevism, and date the degeneration of the revolution to the early 20s, I will be among those celebrating… Estonia earlier this year demanded the leftwing Greek government admit that “communism was as bad as fascism” (it refused).”

The Russian Revolution of course opened the door to a brutal regime which culminated in more than 20 million deaths under Stalin. A Twitter backlash against the hard left is making the facts clear…

Corbyn Comes Round on Free Schools

Is Jezza finally coming round on the most successful education policy in years? Earlier this week he attended the opening of a new free school in North London, lavishing the City of London Academy Highgate Hill with praise for its focus on arts and music. Highgate Hill is the fourth free school to be opened by the City of London Academy Trust. A welcome shift from Labour now free schools are out-performing all other types of school with 5-7-year-olds and 16-18-year-olds and are joint best on progress between 11 and 16. Back in 2015 Jez was going round implying he wanted to abolish them. He likes free schools when they’re helping kids in his back yard…

Venezuelan Opposition Wins EU Human Rights Award

Since 1988 the European Parliament has awarded an annual Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.  The prize is awarded to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the fight for human rights across the globe, drawing attention to human rights violations as well as supporting the laureates and their cause.

Today it has been awarded to the Democratic Opposition in Venezuela: National Assembly (Julio Borges) and all political prisoners as listed by Foro Penal Venezolano represented by Leopoldo López, Antonio Ledezma, Daniel Ceballos, Yon Goicoechea, Lorent Saleh, Alfredo Ramos and Andrea González.

Jeremy Corbyn is a friend and supporter of the corrupt Maduro dictatorship in Caracas. This award will only increase Jeremy’s latent euroscepticism…

Quote of the Day

Noel Gallagher on Brexit:

“In England, the Brexit thing, it’s like, I can’t believe there’s so much noise about it… It was put to the people as a vote, the people voted. That’s democracy. F***ing get over it.”
