Tories Lead Labour in North

YouGov’s headline figure of a 42% – 25% Tory lead over Labour in this morning’s is bad enough for Corbyn. Even worse is the Tory lead in the North and among working class voters. Perhaps Jez will say the polls are rigged too…

Corbyn to Quote Trump in Speech Tomorrow

In April last year, Donald Trump famously said this:

“If you think about it, the economy is rigged. The banking system is rigged. There’s a lot of things that are rigged in this world of ours… and we’re going to change it. You know, the system, folks, is rigged. It’s a rigged system.”

Tomorrow, in a speech at the Fabian Society, Jeremy Corbyn will quote one of the President-Elect’s most memorable soundbites during the US election campaign. The Labour leader will say:

“The people who run Britain have been taking our country for a ride. They’ve stitched up our political system to protect the powerful… They’ve rigged the economy and business rules to line the pockets of their friends… Labour under my leadership stands for a complete break with this rigged system.”

The Trumpian rebrand’s gonna be great, folks, it’s gonna be tremendous…

Corbyn: Labour Isn’t Out of Control

Corbyn says “I’m not expecting any other MPs to resign” but “if they come they come”, adding: “I haven’t lost control of the party. The party isn’t out of control.” If you have to say it…

Corbyn’s PMQs Inspiration

Guido might have detected David Prescott’s turn of phrase from Corbyn today – the Labour leader now has Prezza Jnr working on his PMQs prep team and hit the PM with the archetypal Labour attack line: “Our NHS is in crisis but the Prime Minister is in denial”. A better Corbyn line was his mockery of Theresa May’s “shared society”: “More people sharing hospital corridors on trolleys”. Inspired by Morten Morland’s cartoon in today’s Times?

The BBC had a similar line on the News at Ten on Monday as well. Neither May nor Corbyn is a strong PMQs peformer, the best lines are borrowed from elsewhere. Becoming a challenge for sketch writers…

Maguire Demands £230,000 Salary From Mirror

The Mirror’s associate editor Kevin Maguire has backed Corbyn’s salary cap, writing: “the maximum wage is an idea whose time has come… I’ve advocated a maximum for years and personally favour a 10-to-1 limit within companies”. Well, last year Trinity Mirror chief executive Simon Fox earned £2.3 million, so if the company was to implement the Maguire Doctrine it means the Mirror’s minimum wage would be £230,000.[…] Read the rest
