Amber Rudd: Gizza Job Bozza

Big shift from outspoken Remainer and Hunt supporter Amber Rudd who told TalkRADIO this morning she accepted that No Deal is “part of the armoury” in trying to get a better deal with the EU. Rudd still insists to JHB that a deal would be “so much better” but it’s a far cry from when she was adamant no deal would be a “disaster”.

Surely nothing to do with the fact that Boris has said that his cabinet will all have to be on board with his policy to leave the EU by 31st October, deal or no deal. It seems as Nick Boles says: “So she will let Boris Johnson drive her home after all – so long as it’s in a ministerial limo…”

Toi-Late Batten Misses Start of Radio Interview

UKIP leader Gerard Batten was flushed with embarrassment after he missed the start of his eve-of-conference talkRADIO interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer this morning for “personal reasons”. Her producer had already got him on the line when he disappeared. The prospect of Julia’s fearsomely tough questions clearly loosened his bowels. For a moment the producer thought they had been dumped. The subject matter of Julia’s cheeky question pushed the interview into a sticky situation. After passing that initial conversational blockage, the sit-down interview was back on a roll…

Julia Hartley-Brewer: Corbyn is Anti-Semitic and a Racist. Sue Me.

Julia Hartley-Brewer set out an explosive challenge to Jeremy Corbyn live on air today, when interviewing a ‘Jewish Voice For Labour’ spokesman.

“Come on Jezza, sue me. I think you’re anti-Semitic. I think everything you do and say suggests you are anti-Semitic. I think you’re an anti-Semite, just like Margaret Hodge, prominent Jewish Labour MP. If that’s not true, prove to me that it’s not true. Take me to court, sue me for libel, and let’s get this out in the open.”

Julia-Hartley Brewer has drawn a pretty big line in the sand and dared Jezza. Corbyn can sue her and Murdoch owned TalkRadio. Will he take her up on her offer?

Julia Hartley-Brewer Skewers BBC Over Gender Quota

A very pleasing dig at the BBC’s new gender quota for TV guests from Julia Hartley-Brewer on Marr this morning. Julia, who was discussing the gender pay gap story on the sofa alongside Polly Toynbee, said:

“I know obviously that we are making up the gender quota for expert commentators for the BBC today. Nice to be invited for that and not for actually our views but there we are…”

No comeback from Marr…

BBC Question Time Panels Dominated by Remainers

Julia Hartley-Brewer joked with David Dimbleby on Question Time a couple of weeks ago that she was used to being the only Brexiteer on a panel. And she was right.

Lefties used to complain that Nigel Farage was forever on the programme, he has only appeared once in the 42 Question Time shows there have been since the referendum. According to research done by a co-conspirator*, Remain panelists have outnumbered Leavers by 137-72, nearly twice as many. 86% of the time the panel was dominated by Remainers…

  • Leavers have only outnumbered Remainers in 3 episodes. Remainers dominated in 36.
  • In 16 editions there was only a single Leaver.
  • Prominent anti-Brexiteers dominate the repeat appearances with Emily Thornberry and Richard Burgon on 5 times, Alex Salmond and Leanne Wood on 3 times.
  • Jacob Rees-Mogg was the only Brexiteer to appear 3 times.

Given the majority of the country backed Leave is it really too hard for the producers to have more balanced panels? Admittedly most of the political establishment they have to choose from is pro-Remain…

*Researched by co-conspirator and journalist Ken Andrew. He excluded the non-partisan edition immediately after the Manchester bombing and the Leaders’ Debates.

Julia Hartley-Brewer: MPs Got Pay Rise Despite Pay Cap

Julia Hartley-Brewer challenged MPs over the £1,000 pay rise they received despite the public sector pay cap. During a discussion about the cap on BBC Question Time, Julia said:

“Interestingly, earlier this year, three of the people on this panel, all MPs, took a £1,000 pay rise to £76,000 a year… I happen to know a brain surgeon who earns half that. Being an MP, with all due respect, isn’t brain surgery, and yet you guys think you are worth so much more than people doing front line jobs.”

She ain’t wrong…

Ken: Failure to “Kill All The Oligarchs” Caused Venezuela Crisis

Red Ken has doubled down on his theory that Venezuela would be just fine if only Chavez and Maduro had succeeded in “killing all the oligarchs”. Interviewed by Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRadio, Livingstone peddled anti-American conspiracy theories and suggested videos of opposition leaders being arrested at gunpoint under the cover of night were “propaganda”. The former London mayor – with whom Jeremy Corbyn has shared platforms at pro-Chavez rallies – said:

“One of the things that Chavez did when he came to power, he didn’t kill all the oligarchs, he allowed them to live, to carry on… a lot of them are using their power and control…to make it difficult and to undermine Maduro.”

Ken also complained that the country’s economics minister did not listen to his advice, and said of Venezuela’s new constituent assembly: “I’d like to see us do that here in Britain”. On the plus side, got through it without mentioning Hitler…

‘Day of Rage’ Leader Refuses To Disavow Violence

The leader of the group behind today’s ‘Day of Rage’ has refused three times to disassociate the protest from violence. Julia Hartley-Brewer interviewed Karen Doyle from the Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary for Talk Radio; Doyle refused point blank three times to distance the rally from violence to people or property. John McDonnell’s chums clearly didn’t get his last-minute message to keep things peaceful…

Ken Avoids Mentioning “Hitler” in Interview – Refers Only to “Mr H”

 

Julia Hartley-Brewer challenged Ken not to mention Hitler during 12 minute interview on talkRadio. He managed to – by referring to a “Mr H”.

Is this the first step to recovery?

Sarah Olney Walks Out of Interview, Spin Doctor Forced to Take Over

Sarah Olney has walked out of a car crash interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRadio after a spin doctor intervened and said she “had to go”. The new LibDem MP was unable to answer simple questions about Brexit and the single market. Steep learning curve.

Julia Hartley-Brewer v George Galloway

George Galloway, currently polling at zero percent in the London mayoral race, decided it would be a good idea to precede a TalkRadio interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer by tweeting:

“I have no wish to charm you. I despise you, and always have… malice runs through [your] veins. And drips out.”

Lovely.

Hours later Gorgeous George turned up at the studio, chummily greeting JHB with a friendly “hello” and attempting to shake her hand. Unsurprisingly Julia refused to take it, then gave Galloway an on air machine-gunning. Enjoy watching a defeated George slump out of the studio…

Totty Watch Poll

totty

Debate swirls in Westminster about Tory MP Col Bob Stewart’s use of the word “totty” to describe the Speccie’s Isabel Hardman…

Isabel Oakeshott says: “Strong women don’t need to whine about sexists calling us ‘totty’”

Isabel Hardman says: “that is NOT on and lobby women shouldn’t have to put up with it. So I have passed the MP’s name on to a whip.”

Cathy Newman says: “I’m with Isabel on this… Isabel Hardman.”

Julia Hartley-Brewer says: “Many years ago I was at a dinner at a Conservative Party conference with a couple of MPs. One of those MPs kept putting his hand on my knee. The third time I removed his hand and said it is very simple, either you don’t put my hand on my knee again or I am going to punch you in the face.”

Who are you backing? Take Guido’s poll…

Generation Snow-Faking Victimhood

boo-hoo

Julia Hartley-Brewer has justifiably got angry about being accused of bullying by a teenage Guardian writer who came off worse in a public debate with her. Julia wrote about the debate in The Telegraph, deriding her opponent’s views without naming her. The Guardian writer then started claiming she was, as a result, being bullied. This set Louise Mensch off:

That in turn set off a load of fellow-travelling snowflakers, culminating in the Sainted Stella Creasy getting involved and berating Julia. (They have previous.)

No one tweeted anything to her until SHE herself tweeted out the link. She has since accused me of “bullying” her, that I “misrepresented” her and claimed she has received “abuse” as a result. She insists on .@ ing all her tweets to Louise Mensch and me so everyone can see them. She hasn’t received a single abusive tweet that I can find. She is a fame-hungry fantasist and the poster girl for the feminista victimhood.

This is another example of that smartphone immersed “snowflake generation” of victimhood-seeking, privilege-checking whiners getting far too much unwarranted attention*…

*Not naming the teenage Guardianista because we’re determined not to give her the SEO-enhancing satisfaction of being able in the manner of Laurie Penny to claim Guido bullied her as well.

Julia Hartley-Brewer Slaps Down Class War Nut

The Class War representative on the Daily Politics took his life into his own hands when he bravely decided to call Julia-Hartley Brewer “sweetheart“. Apparently he said something much ruder to her off air too. And then claimed he supported the Suffragettes.[…] Read the rest
