Corbyn Supporters Want to Nationalise and Expropriate Pensioners Without Compensation


Corbynista Cat Hobbs, founder and director of We Own It, a left-wing group which campaigns for state ownership, has revealed how Labour could enact its plan to nationalise utilities if Corbyn took office. Hobbs told Stephanie Flanders on the Today Programme that expropriation of shareholders in utility and transport firms was necessary in order to redress perceived historical wrongs on the part of firms. Hobbs said:

“Do these shareholders really deserve the market value… you’d compensate the shareholders for the money that they’ve put in, but the market value of the shares is much higher… so you’d compensate them for the money that they’ve put in and that’s fair, but what you wouldn’t do is compensate them for the full market value.”

Cat Hobbs called Labour’s manifesto commitment to nationalisation “fantastic”. Corbynistas are so dogmatically hell-bent on nationalisation they will happily rob pensioners in ordinary retirement schemes…

“A Rabbit is Not a Cute Pet” Venezuelan Government Tells Starving Citizens

Over the summer disturbing reports out of Venezuela told how starving citizens were being forced to steal animals from the country’s zoos to survive. Boars, buffalo and tapirs were pillaged by desperate victims of Corbyn’s socialist paradise, leaving concerned animal lovers worldwide wondering whether it would be pandas, meerkats, koalas or giraffes next on the menu. To stave off the bout of critter kidnappings Venezuela’s agriculture minister has now unveiled the government’s new “Rabbit Plan”, ordering the nation to breed hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting bunnies – and then eat them. During a televised broadcast alongside Jezza’s comrade Nicolas Maduro, minister Freddy Bernal told Venezuelans they should not see the big-eared burrowing creatures as “cute pets”.

“There is a cultural problem because we have been taught that rabbits are cute pets. A rabbit is not a pet; it’s two and a half kilos of meat that is high in protein, with no cholesterol.”

As a committed vegetarian, will this slaughter of Venezuela’s furry friends be the final straw that sees Corbyn at last condemn the Maduro regime?

PMQs Sketch: First Dates

PMQs: every Wednesday lunchtime it feels like watching an action replay of the worst first date you have ever been on in your life. Like a cocky sixth-former with horrendously bad chat, Jez always over-plans his opening gambit: this time it was disability rights. Hapless and out of fashion, his first lines hit so far off base that they force May to rely on stock phrases she had mentally planned out for different scenarios. Like an under-confident teenage girl trying to recall what she said to herself in the mirror the night before, May hesitates before every response. Will they ever get anywhere near the hot verbal intercourse we all crave?

The main course seldom goes better. Jez’s material was again worthy and stale; he overcooked public sector pay with statistics. Meanwhile, the bloody difficult date sat opposite might as well have been in a different restaurant. May is a clock-watching woman, she has no desire to be there: the kind of girl who might just vanish from the table while you’ve gone to the gents. This week, the last PMQs before conferences, it was especially clear she could not wait to get the taxi home. She regards every question as an attempt to dishonour her, yet she is dealing with a man who essentially cannot perform. It is painful to watch her act so defensively against Jez who, when it comes to debate, cannot keep it up…

Corbyn’s Reassurance

Jeremy Corbyn tells the BBC:

“There’s a great deal of coherence in our position on Brexit.”

Corbyn’s Single Market Shambles

Corbyn has been on The World at One where he has suggested we could stay in the single market permanently, contradicting what he said in July:

Jeremy Corbyn, July 23: “The single market is dependent on membership of the EU. The two things are inextricably linked.”

Jeremy Corbyn, September 11: “There has to be a trade relationship with Europe, whether that’s formally in the single market or whether that’s an agreement to trade within the single market. That’s open to discussion or negotiation.”

Then 30 seconds later Corbyn then went on to repeat his July position that you can’t be in the single market unless you’re in the EU. A complete shambles. Almost as if he doesn’t have a clue what he is on about…

UPDATE: Once again Seumas has to clarify something Corbyn has got confused about:

CAC Handed To Corbyn

Big Labour news: Corbynistas are a step closer to consolidating their power within the party after seizing control of the crucial Conference Arrangements Committee. Corbyn-backed candidates Billy Hayes, a former CWU general secretary, and Seema Chandwani, from Tottenham CLP, have been elected to the body which dictates the agenda for Labour conference. The result is a significant defeat for moderates; the Progress and Labour First backed Gloria De Piero and Labour peer Lord Cashman were defeated. Progress had previously put it like this:

“The CAC is the thin red line stopping Momentum making conference a free-for-all where every fantasy politics piece of ‘resolutionary socialism’ gets debated…”

Control of the CAC will allow the left to prioritise debates on party rulebook changes. That means mandatory reselection could be coming…

UPDATE: Chris Williamson already on the case:

“MPs should be subject to a routine process like every other elected position in a membership organisation is.”

McPMQs

What do a McDonald’s worker and Jeremy Corbyn have in common? Two E’s at A-Level. But more than that, in fact: as the hot potatoes of Brexit and immigration policy sizzled unattended in the frying pan of politics, Jez chose to begin PMQs with an ardent defence of Britain’s burger flippers. Why?

Because Jeremy Corbyn feels a natural affinity with the fast food operative; he is no less than the patron saint of sausage shufflers. Jez is deeply aware that nothing more should have become of him in this life, he should have been that unwillingly-uniformed delinquent stood behind the McDonald’s counter, red-hatted and forever destined to fill paper cartons full of soggy fries. In fact, Jez single-handedly undermines the message of McStrike. Jeremy Corbyn is exactly what happens when you pay a McDonald’s one-star worker more than £100,000 a year: you get a woefully over-promoted half-wit unable to correctly follow orders, their salary entirely out of step with their abilities and performance. Then again Vegan Jez wouldn’t fit in at McDonald’s…

Tom Watson would be on the burger station, wouldn’t he? Slipping one out of every two beef patties slyly into his capacious gob, chucking the odd one into the mouth of Emily Thornberry, poised on the other side of the grill. It’d be like feeding one of those plastic bins made to look like an animal. Don’t put Laura Pidcock on the tills for God’s sake; she won’t talk to any of the customers. Come to think of it, could any of these jokers make an even half-arsed attempt at running an average fast food outlet? Extrapolate further and you see the whole thing is little more than McPMQs: the same old diet of junk is still constantly served up, the quality improves not a bit. At least a McDonald’s is over quickly…

And like turning a burger, Jez flips from the private to public sector: for him they are two sides of the same steak, both equally deserving to be thrown on the fire. “Warm words don’t pay food bills. Pay rises will help to do that. She must end the pay cap.” Almost immediately, the PM drops the entire dinner on the floor, saying he wants “money for this, that and the other”. Like a group of hoodlums gathered at midnight in the upstairs of a Maccy D’s in the rough part of town, Labour MPs whooped and hollered. She was doing passably well, but as usual impaled herself with one of her own attack lines, coming out like a kebab on a skewer.

No mention of Jacob Rees-Mogg; well, you wouldn’t catch him dead under the Golden Arches. The only actual news to come out of PMQs was a plea for an ancient driving law to be changed. It’s the first PMQs of the new parliamentary year, and that’s the top line. It’s almost like “nothing has changed”: every week, the menu is entirely the same, and, just like a McDonald’s, it literally ends up down the toilet…

Corbyn Hands GQ Award to “Paigon May” Bashing Stormzy

Jeremy Corbyn was the star turn at the GQ Man of the Year awards last night, where he handed the Solo Artist of the Year award to rapper Stormzy. Jez praised Stormzy’s album Gang Signs and Prayer, after which Stormzy blasted Theresa May as a “paigon“. For those not up-to-date with street culture, “paigon” means “liar“, “witch“, “snake“, “snitch” or “enemy“. Alastair Campbell thought he called her a “pig“. Not sure which is better…

What is it with Jez and sharing platforms….

Corbyn: I’m Becoming a Vegan

Jeremy Corbyn has announced he is “going through the process” of becoming a vegan. Speaking at an event with the Lush handmade cosmetics brand this afternoon, Corbyn told the audience “I eat more and more vegan food”, declaring that “vegan food has got a lot better” and explaining he was won round after a vegan dinner with a “close relative”. He’s been spending too much time with Chris Williamson…

Leftie Train-Segregator Chris Williamson’s 10 Looniest Moments

Corbyn yes-man Chris Williamson is one of Jez’s most dependable fools, reliably popping up to defend the indefensible in the papers and on TV. He’s in the headlines again today, dragging up Jez’s much-criticised women only train carriages idea. It’s another example of Chris putting his name to anything he thinks will further his leader’s loony line. Guido brings you Chris’s 10 looniest moments of late…

  1. Refused to deny his politics are closer to murderous Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro and predecessor Hugo Chavez than his own party’s most successful leader, Tony Blair. Relive that moment above…
  2. Blamed the Grenfell disaster on the “violent ideology of neoliberalism”, suggesting Thatcher and Blair were “complicit” in the tragedy. There are no fires under socialist governments, obviously…
  3. Appeared on TV to back Clive Lewis’s infamous “burn neoliberalism” Grenfell Tower comment. Probably gutted he didn’t think of it himself...
  4. Trolled much-loved newsreader Alastair Stewart over the violent death of his chickens, posting a bizarre series of tweets attacking the journalist during the small hours of the morning. Odd…
  5. Called for mandatory re-selection of Labour MPs to “concentrate minds”. Williamson said: “MPs need to reflect the political programme… if people aren’t prepared to do that then it will be up to members in their local constituencies to find someone else who will.” Loves a purge…
  6. Declared victory on behalf of the hard left, branding Labour moderates “malcontents” who had been planted inside the party thirty years ago as “sleeper” agents by the Tories. Tin foil hat time…
  7. Backed Momentum threats to deselect Luciana Berger, whilst she was on maternity leave. Williamson threw his weight behind a hard left intimidation campaign, saying: “individual MPs in this party think it’s their God-given right to rule… I think critics of mandatory re-selection are mistaken…” Nasty…
  8. Blamed the government for the 2011 London riots, tweeting: “Why is it the Tories never take responsibility for the consequences of their party’s disastrous policies”. Less than helpful as London burned
  9. Suggested all MPs should live in student-style digs next to parliament, but the idea was slammed as there is no such accommodation in cramped Westminster and it would have to be built at vast cost to the taxpayer. Doh…
  10. Just today appalled his Labour colleagues by reviving Jez’s widely-condemned call for women’s only train carriages, an idea panned by feminists and women’s advocates as normalising abuse.

And what is it with Corbynistas and trains?

UPDATE: His ideas are gaining traction in parliament:

Corbyn: Wrong to Say There is a British-Pakistani Grooming Problem

Jeremy Corbyn has asked been by the BBC if he thinks there is a particular problem with British-Pakistani men grooming girls:

BBC: “Do you not think there’s a particular problem with Pakistani men, because we’ve seen in Rochdale, we’ve seen in Rotherham, in Newcastle and Oxford, that’s been the problem.”

Corbyn: “The problem is the crime that’s committed against women from any community. Much crime is committed by white people, crime is committed by people of other communities as well. I think it is wrong to designate an entire community as a problem.”

He should listen to the words of Muslim Labour candidate Amina LoneYou’d have thought Labour would have learned about shutting down this debate…

May: Big Ben Bong Ban Wrong

Theresa May says the ban on Big Ben bonging is wrong. Jeremy Corbyn on the other hand sides with health and safety:

“If we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”

Big Ben is still bonging but it’s a quiet day in Westminster…

Loony Labour Update

Should come as no surprise that John McDonnell’s PPS, the new Labour MP Karen Lee, is a fan of a mass-murdering dictator who put homosexuals in concentration camps. Meanwhile, after Corbynistas spent the last two weeks trying in vain to distance Jez from the thugs in Venezuela, the geniuses at the Morning Star write “Corbyn is our Chavez”.

Morning Star gets it right shock…

Corbyn’s Visit to ‘Local GPs’ Staged by Labour Spin Doctor

Jeremy Corbyn has posted a Twitter video which shows him visiting a doctor’s surgery, in his words, to “talk to a group of local GPs about the work that they have”. The clip shows him meeting staff and he concludes:

“The stress levels are getting higher and higher… the stress is visited upon the GPs practice. And so, what happens here, is often a symptom of the malaise in society that austerity has brought about.”

The video is presented as if Jez is on a visit to an ordinary surgery, apparently chosen at random so he can take the pulse of NHS staff. In fact, the entire production is a set-up: the Somerset Family Health Practice in Southall is run by Dr Onkar Sahota, who is not only a Labour member and activist, but is Chair of the Labour Group on the London Assembly. Corbyn introduces Sahota: “I’m visiting this excellent GP’s practice and Dr Sahota has shown me around”. The fact that the good doctor is a Labour London Assembly Member isn’t mentioned. Nor is it explained in any of the other tweets about the visit sent by Corbyn’s account. Spin doctor…

Sahota, who last year congratulated Corbyn when he won the Labour leadership, is listed on the surgery’s website as the practice director. So the surgery staff met the Labour leader only under the watchful eye of their pro-Labour boss, who was never far away:

No wonder Corbyn got exactly the answers he came looking for…

Also, how much NHS time was wasted facilitating this Corbynista propaganda?

Corbyn Doubles Down on Venezuela

Jez is back from his cycling holiday in Croatia; asked specifically whether he condemns President Maduro’s actions, he says:

“What I condemn is the violence that’s been done by any side and all sides in this.”

As expected…

UPDATE: “Both Sides”

UPDATE: Labour NEC member Jasmin Beckett says Corbyn’s position on Venezuela “isn’t good enough”.

Rich Kids Winners Under Corbyn’s Student Plans

Jeremy Corbyn’s plan to abolish university tuition fees would force society’s lowest earners to massively subsidise the free education of a wealthy elite. A Centre for Policy Studies report out today says Labour’s plans “would effectively act as a subsidy from comparatively less wealthy non-graduates to graduates”. […] Read the rest
