Trickett Tweets Fake News

Labour Shadow Cabinet member and top Corbynista Jon Trickett excelled himself this morning by retweeting a patently fake BBC News graphic which falsely claimed Theresa May sought to release Ian Brady. Goes without saying the graphic is not a real BBC story. Sad…

Team Corbyn Face Tristram Backlash

Labour MPs are privately flipping out following Tristram Hunt’s resignation. Guido has got hold of an email sent by Core Group Negative MP Neil Coyle this lunchtime to his party’s campaign co-ordinator, the Corbyn ally Jon Trickett, giving him both barrels under the subject line “No clear plan. Poor leadership”:

From: COYLE, Neil
Sent: 13 January 2017 12:09
To: TRICKETT, Jon
Subject: No clear plan. Poor leadership.

Jon,

Just a quick question given your role as our campaign lead: how do you and the leadership team aim to turn around Labour’s woes given the terrible ‘relaunch’, general polling, local election losses (including the shocking result in Sunderland yesterday), as well as the further by-election we now face.

Your tweet below appears to be dangerously close to coming back to bite your backside – only this time you have a direct say over the lack of clear plan and poor leadership.

Neil

Say what you really think…

Labour MPs Make Complete Ankaras of Themselves

Responding to the coup in Turkey, in which 90 died, protesters were gunned down and over 1,000 were injured, top Corbynista Shadow Cabinet member Jon Trickett said:

It’s now been deleted.

Chris Bryant for some reason decided it was all about Brexit:

Labour MPs, step away from the keyboard…

Labour Demand Snap Election

trick

Corbynista Jon Trickett says:

“It is crucial,  given the instability caused by the Brexit vote,  that the country has a democratically elected Prime Minister. I am now putting the whole of the party on a General Election footing. It is time for the Labour Party to unite and ensure the millions of people in the country left behind by the Tories’ failed economic policies, have the opportunity to elect a Labour government.”

Farron has made the same call. May has previously ruled it out but she’ll be tempted to bury Labour in the autumn…

UPDATE: Angela Eagle has the nominations and a Labour leadership contest is on, Iain McNicol has just confirmed. Six minutes apart, Labour have sent out press releases demanding a snap general election and announcing their own leadership contest…

Ex-Miliband Aide Backs ‘Caracas Corbyn’ For Leader

Guido might have to rethink his support for Andy Burnham: Jeremy Corbyn is standing for the Labour leadership on an “anti-austerity platform”. It tells you a lot that one of his first supporters is Ed Miliband’s former political adviser:

Corbyn has plenty of experience with the full and fair democratic process from his role as a Venezuelan election ‘monitor‘, where the tyrannical, human rights abusing Chavez-Maduro regime he supports was returned to power.

Among his heroes: Fidel Castro.

Among his pet hates: “the pro-Israel Lobby“.

He wants Britain to go down the route of Greek commies Syriza and says Britain should give the Falklands back to the Argies:

What will the unions now do? They have everything they want in Corbyn….

Ed’s Senior Adviser Begs For Unity

Ken is riding to Ed’s rescue on the airwaves, meanwhile the Labour leader’s new “senior political adviser” Jon Trickett has taken to the Staggers to plead with plotters:

“We’re the Labour Party and we are the Labour movement and one of our founding principles is that an attack on anyone of us, by the forces of darkness, our political foes, is an attack on all of us. If one of us is attacked then all of us are attacked.

The truth is that Ed Miliband has been subject to the most sustained level of attack and critique by the forces of reaction, our political foes, that I’ve ever seen and I was first elected 30 years ago this year. I’ve never seen anything like it.

I think there’s an absolute duty on us, when anyone of us is under attack, particularly somebody we’ve elected to lead us, not to allow that and not to feed the flames.

My own judgement, for what it’s worth, is that I will stand by anyone who is under attack.”

If there is no plot, why is Ed’s new point man begging for unity? And where is Andy Burnham?

UPDATE: A Labour insider gets in touch: “Trickett is verging on being educationally sub-normal.”

UPDATE II:

Please retweet to save our leader!

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
