Corbyn Speech Text in Full

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, speaking at Labour Party Conference today, said:

Thank you for that welcome. I want to start by thanking the workers, the fantastic staff at the Conference Centre and hotels, the Labour Party staff who make this possible, and the people of Liverpool who have made us feel so welcome this week.

Corbyn Forgets All Six of Labour’s ‘Brexit Tests’

It appears that Corbyn may be closer to Barry “bollocks” Gardiner than Keir Starmer on the merits of Labour’s Brexit tests, as he got them completely wrong in a howler of an interview with the BBC last night. Jeremy’s best attempt to remember them all was:

  1. Access to the market
  2. A customs union
  3. Appropriate regulations that protect jobs, environment and consumer rights
  4. An end to the speculation of the danger of a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic

Errm, that was it. Of course, as Laura Kuenssberg reminded him, Labour’s six tests are actually:

  1. Fair migration
  2. Strong collaboration with the EU
  3. Protecting security
  4. Delivering for nations and regions
  5. Protecting workers’ rights
  6. Having the same benefits as the single market

As Laura understatedly put it, these were “not precisely” what Corbyn outlined instead. He didn’t “precisely” get a single one right and couldn’t even remember to give six. Everyone knows the tests are “bollocks” but if they’re your party’s main policy on the biggest issue of the day, you should at least remember how many there are…

Nor did Corbyn get the chance to redeem himself this morning after a bit of last minute revision as he shunned the traditional leader’s interview slot on Today. Perhaps he didn’t want to get accused of being tired by Starmer…

Jeremy seems to be forgetting an awful lot these days – his six Brexit tests, declaring foreign trips, whether he laid a wreath, whether he saw a mural, whether he met terrorists, when he was working for Press TV until (2012, not 2009 as he claimed yesterday)… What will he forget next?

Corbyn Out-Watted as Deputy Leader Plot Descends Into Farce

Team Corbyn’s feud with Tom Watson took a farcical turn at conference today as their attempts to undermine him backfired spectacularly. Allies of Corbyn had put forward a motion to install a second deputy leader – who was guaranteed to be female – in an attempt to dilute Watson’s influence. Just another day in the happy Labour family…

However, it was Watson who had the last laugh after he turned the row on its head by unexpectedly deciding to support the motion himself, making a “passionate” speech in favour of creating the post on the grounds of gender equality.

Now it was Team Corbyn who suddenly got cold feet at the prospect of a popular woman being given a powerful platform to challenge Corbyn from. The hard-left Campaign for Labour Party Democracy faction started campaigning vigorously against the motion this morning before it was abruptly withdrawn just hours before it was due to be voted on. Too much democracy for them?

A deadpan Watson told the BBC he was “very disappointed” and that it was a “great shame” that the CLPD had opposed a second deputy leader, saying that “they’ve got nothing to fear with more women at the top table…” Watson 1 Corbyn 0

Voters: Corbyn Incompetent on Brexit

Sky News has found that 71% of people think Jeremy Corbyn is not competent to negotiate Brexit, compared to just 22% thinking he is competent. Views of the Labour Party as a whole aren’t much better, with 68% of people thinking the party is not competent, and just 25% thinking it is.

How’s that “constructive ambiguity” working out for ya?

More Brits See Labour as Racist than Tories

YouGov have found that more people see the Labour Party as racist than the Tories. Despite his repeated claims to be an “anti-racist campaigner”, twice as many Brits think Jeremy Corbyn is racist (20%) than think the same for Theresa May (11%).

The same poll found that 30% of Brits think Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite, compared to just 5% who believe Theresa May to be. Intriguingly, the same number of Brits see Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn  as Islamophobic, at 9% each…

Rich’s Monday Morning View

Are You An Anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn?

“Anyone who is suffering racism is in a position to define it.”

“And I say to Rabbi Sacks, with all due respect that is beyond excessive, let’s park that one…”

Corbyn Refuses To Say If He Would Back Remain or Leave

AM: “If there was another referendum now, with one option being broadly speaking stay in the EU, and one option broadly speaking leave the EU, how would you vote?”

JC: “Well, that’s conjecture as to what the question would be.”

President Maduro Feasts as Venezuelans Flee Starvation

“Venezuela shows another way is possible” Jeremy Corbyn told us. That way was socialism, and it has turned out the same it always does, disastrously. More than 1.6 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2015, fleeing the economic and humanitarian disaster, streaming across the borders to neighbouring countries such that last month the UN warned that the situation is nearing a “crisis moment”. Socialist Venezuela’s biggest export is its people.

Whilst Venezuelans are reduced to searching through garbage for food and advised by government officials to eat pet rabbits, Nicolas Maduro, the man Jeremy Corbyn congratulates for countering capitalism on live TV call-ins to the dictator’s propaganda show, found a perfect place to be caught spending some of that $35 million bribe he pocketed with his wife, Cilia Flores. On a visit to the famous Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe, in his 5-Star restauarant in Istanbul.

Gökçe is known as ‘Salt Bae’ for his signature style of seasoning steaks and dramatically slicing meat at the table while gyrating his hips. In response to Maduro’s lavish meal, Venezuelans have posted images on social media purporting to show Gökçe sprinkling salt over starving children…

British Jews: Corbyn Is Anti-Semitic

A new poll by the Jewish Chronicle has found that a staggering 85.92% of British Jews think Jeremy Corbyn is anti-Semitic, compared to just 8.26% who do not. Conversely, just 1.72% believe Theresa May is anti-Semitic, a number that sits within the margin of error of the weighted poll.

Strikingly, the breakdown reveals that even over three quarters of Jews in Corbyn’s core demographic of 18-34 year olds believe the Labour leader is anti-Semitic.

How has the Labour Party come to this?

Another Top Corbyn Aide Working Without Security Clearance

Another top Corbyn adviser, Andrew Murray, has reportedly been working in the Labour Leader’s Commons office for eight months without the required security clearance. His application has been pending for over a year..

Andrew Murray was a member of the Communist Party of Great Britain until he joined Labour two years ago.

A quick glance at the parliamentary pass application form might explain why so many of Corbyn’s team have been having trouble. Question 30 asks if applicants have ever been associated with people or groups who have “intended to overthrow or undermine Parliamentary democracy by political, industrial, or violent means?” A number of Corbyn’s top team are probably going to need more than half a page to give full details on that one…

PMQs: Temporal Rift Edition

All across the House of Commons MPs looked around confused, almost concerned. What was that tremendous racket going on in the middle of the room? Had some devious backbenchers snuck up to the Despatch Box to play a noisy prank? Had the session been so soporific that they had fallen asleep and missed both parties deposing their leaders, holding leadership elections and installing charismatic replacements in their place? Had the combined wrath of the ERG and Momentum summoned up two demons from another dimension who were now engaged in a never-ending battle to the death, while opening up a temporal rift which had transported the entire building back in time to 2007? As the MPs were about to find out, sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction. May and Corbyn were actually having a decent battle at PMQs…

Corbyn’s Constituency Abolished

The Boundary Commission has released its final recommendations for cutting down the number of Parliamentary constituencies from 650 to 600 and it’s bad news for the Absolute Boy with his Islington North constituency getting the chop. Will Comrades Thornberry, Abbott or Starmer make way for the dear leader by letting him take one of their neighbouring seats?

UPDATE: Boris Johnson is another big hitter who will be feeling a little nervous with his Uxbridge and South Ruislip seat set to be redrawn to include the more Labour-leaning area of Northolt. Boris currently sits on a modest majority of 5,034, he will be sitting less comfortably after this…

Aside from MPs set to lose their seats, the change which seems to have caused the most consternation is the Bideford, Bude and Launceston seat which combines part of North Cornwall with Devon, creating a controversial “Devonwall” seat. St Austell MP Steve Double has already tweeted out his opposition to the change. Many more concerns like this and the Government will rapidly find itself short of a majority to push the changes through…

Khan: Corbyn Unacceptable

Sadiq Khan has condemned Corbyn’s remarks about British Zionists as “unacceptable”, issuing a warning that “some anti-Semites use the word Zionist to describe Jewish people”. Speaking on LBC this morning, he said Corbyn’s comments had been “perceived by many to be racist”:

SK: “That was unacceptable, and what I think we should welcome is that Jeremy Corbyn…”

JO’B: “So he’s not racist and he’s not anti-Semitic but he said something that’s unacceptable because it is racist and anti-Semitic?”

SK: “The words he said were unacceptable and that paragraph is perceived by many to be racist… the word ‘Zionist’ has been hijacked by anti-Semites.”

Khan is absolutely right to call out those using the word “Zionist” to try to cover up their anti-Semitic views. Will Corbyn follow his example?

Two In Five Jews Would “Seriously Consider” Emigrating If Corbyn Became PM

A Survation poll for the Jewish Chronicle has found that 38.5% of Jews living in Britain would “seriously consider” emigrating if Jeremy Corbyn became Prime Minister. Amongst women that figure rises to over 44%.

The Jewish population of the UK stands at almost 300,000, meaning that if the UK were to elect a Labour government, 115,000 British Jews would seriously consider starting a fresh life outside of Britain.

This is truly unprecedented in modern British history.

Corbyn: We Condemn The Police

“We condemn… we condemn the police and security services… commend the police and security services.”

Looks like a lifetime of saying the former made it harder to say the latter…

The Absolute Boyfriend

Liz Truss: “I do think MPs like Jess who do believe in those values need to stand up against Jeremy Corbyn and dump him.”

Jess Phillips: “You’re making him sound like my boyfriend…”

Corbyn Loses Temper With BBC Again

 

He’s looking very tired and irritable…

More Evidence of Thatcher’s Efforts To Free Mandela

A co-conspirator has got in touch with Guido to remind readers that there is plenty of documentary evidence highlighting Margaret Thatcher’s repeated attempts to free Nelson Mandela, working through diplomatic channels – rather than just protesting outside the embassy. The Anti-Apatheid Movement specifically expressed their gratitude to her for her efforts…

Many left-wingers, despite being told by people who were actually involved in the diplomacy, despite all the available historical documentary evidence and the clarity of statements by Nelson Mandela himself, still persist in claiming Margaret Thatcher supported apartheid. It goes beyond mere political propaganda.

It is not enough that they disagreed with her on the means to end apartheid, they have to demonise her and further justify their hatred of Maggie. It chimes with the truism that the right thinks that left-wingers are just wrong about human nature whereas the left think that right-wingers are wicked humans. They have an emotional need to believe this, for the left it is not a difference of political opinion, it is a clash between the righteous and the bad.

The belief that Maggie supported apartheid has nothing to do with reason or reality. They want to believe she and her allies supported the racist regime to galvanise their hatred. It is dishonest, the deception however is more about emotion than propaganda.

Corbyn’s Russian Cash Connection

New details from the Electoral Commission show that the Labour Party received Russian linked money.

Room One Limited, donated £12,500.00 to the Labour party in the second quarter of 2018. They own a 50% stake in a recently dissolved company Room One 360 Limited.[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

Emily Thornberry tells Labour activists some home truths…

“…we must all acknowledge, that there are sickening individuals on the fringes of our movement, who use our legitimate support for Palestine as a cloak and a cover for their despicable hatred of Jewish people, and their desire to see Israel destroyed.”
