Kate Hoey to Vote DUP

Speaking to LBC’s Iain Dale last night, the former Vauxhall MP and Labour Leaver declared that she will be voting in Northern Ireland – for the DUP…

This ends speculation that Kate might have been about to become the fourth former Labour MP to announce she’ll be voting for Boris – after this supportive Tweet:

Significant that she has chosen to not vote for the Labour Remainer successor in Vauxhall…

Kate Hoey’s Emotional Goodbye: ‘My Country Still Comes Before My Party’

A touching curtain call…

Diane Purges Kate Hoey Live on Air

Diane Abbott purged Labour MP Kate Hoey live on air this morning, claiming the Vauxhall MP is not a Labour MP. That’ll come as news to Kate…

Kate Hoey Calls for Electoral Commission to be Disbanded

Labour MP Kate Hoey has called for the Electoral Commission to be disbanded after the “travesty of justice” over the way they handled the Darren Grimes case. Incredibly, the Commission are still considering an appeal against the judge’s decision despite their case being comprehensively dismantled. Blowing hundreds of thousands more of taxpayers’ cash in vindictive pursuit of one campaigner…

As Hoey says, clearly there does need to be a body that oversees elections. The highly partisan members of the current Commission and the asymmetric way they have dealt with the two sides in the referendum since means there is no confidence left in its abilities. Time to start again from the ground up…

UPDATE: Tory MP Craig Mackinlay has backed Hoey’s call to disband the Electoral Commission:

“Couldn’t agree more with @KateHoeyMP. The @ElectoralCommUK has made too many mistakes, hounded too many innocent people (I should know), given too much incorrect advice, changed its mind repeatedly, made interpretations of the law ‘on the hoof’. It has no further worth.”

Kate Hoey Stepping Down as Labour MP

Labour Brexit hero Kate Hoey MP has announced that she will be stepping down as an MP at the next election after 30 years representing Vauxhall. Sadly it will mean an end to FBPE Corbynistas in heavily pro-Remain Vauxhall getting spectacularly triggered by their local MP. Opens up a plum safe Labour seat in the heart of London, Sadiq Khan will have half an eye on it as he mulls his options for a return to Parliament to fight for the Labour leadership…

Hoey put out a statement on Twitter confirming her decision not to seek re-election as a Labour candidate, although nothing in her statement rules out her potentially defecting to the Brexit Party before then. The Labour Remainer meltdown if she did would be something to behold…

Hoey: EU and Ireland have “connived” together

Northern Irish Labour MP Kate Hoey has accused the EU and Ireland of “conniving” together to undermine Brexit and trap the UK as close as possible to the EU. As Tony Connelly’s RTE exposé revealed last year, she may have a point…

Boundary Review Expected Next Month

Guido hears that the Boundary Commission will be publishing their ‘Final Recommendations’ on September 5, now that the DUP have seemingly dropped their major objections, accepting that downsizing the Northern Irish contingent of constituencies was probably worth it to help keep Corbyn away from Number 10. The boundary review began in 2011…

Guido reckons that the Commission’s aim of equalising the size of seats to within 5% of a target number will boost the Tories by some 20 seats by removing anomalies that favour Labour. Guido thinks it cost even more incumbent Labour MPs their seats. Corbynistas won’t be able to resist the temptation to push for sweeping deselections, justified by even very small adjustments to boundaries. Momentum have already scented first blood with the threatened removal of Kate Hoey and Frank Field…

Hoey: Labour Are Betraying the Will of the British People

Labour MP Kate Hoey says her party voting against the Brexit bill is “betraying the will of the British people”…

Kate Hoey Challenges Benn For Brexit Select Committee

hoey

The Remain stitch up to get Hilary Benn in charge of the Brexit select committee has a challenger – Labour Leaver Kate Hoey is putting her name forward for the role. She is backed by other prominent Labour Brexiters including Gisela Stuart and John Mann, as well as Tories like Theresa Villiers, the SNP’s Alex Salmond and DUP’s Nigel Dodds. Tory MPs’ votes are crucial – do you really want a Remainer who wants to stay in the single market in charge of scrutiny of Brexit? Or a Leaver who will properly hold Theresa May to account…

Remain Leaflet Blames Leave: “Jo Cox’s Murder is Only the Start”

remain2

This pro-Remain literature personally targeting Leave campaigner Kate Hoey has landed on doormats in Brixton, Vauxhall and Kennington the last 24 hours. They have clearly taken a leaf-let out of Will Straw’s book, directly blaming “the Leave campaign” for Jo Cox’s death:

“The Leave campaign’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has stoked the British public’s fears to the point that we now find ourselves in a country riven by hate. History tells us that scapegoating those we think are not like us always has terrible consequences. Jo Cox’s tragic murder is possibly only the start.”

The new reasoned, respectful debate lasted not even 48 hours…

READ: Labour MPs’ Email Chain Mocking Corbyn

Try-hard Corbynista MP Clive Lewis emailed Labour colleagues this morning soliciting their support for a ‘Labour In’ statement on the referendum:

Unfortunately for Clive, warm responses were not forthcoming. Partly because he unwisely cc’d known Outers like Kate Hoey into the email chain. This was Kate’s reply:

Best response however came from sarky moderate Ian Austin:

Zing!

EU Order of the OTT: Super Soub’s Souped Up Spin

The level of outlandish hyperbole flying around during the referendum campaign has inspired Guido to institute a new EU subdivision of the Order of the OTT. The first recipient is Anna ‘super’ Soubry for her brilliantly bonkers claim that trade with the EU will reduce to “absolutely zero” post-Brexit:

Jonathan Dimbleby: “Can you both agree on a matter of fact, what proportion of this market is in Europe and what proportion is outside?”

Anna Soubry: “44% of our exports which is £290 billion goes into the EU.”

Kate Hoey: “That has gone down by 10% in the last 8 years.”

Anna Soubry: “But Kate it will go down to almost absolutely zero if we come out of the EU.”

According to Soubs there will be a virtual trade embargo with the EU following Brexit, despite the fact that the UK’s trade deficit with the EU has just hit an all time high. Righto.

Hoey Goes Escargotey: Ate Snails With Britain’s Hardest Man and Ronnie O’Sullivan

Guido has unearthed some rather surreal 90s footage of prominent Grassroots Out advocate Kate Hoey eating snails with Lenny McLean and a young Ronnie O’Sullivan. McLean was a champion bareknuckle fighter once dubbed Britain’s hardest man, and O’Sullivan would go on to be one of the greatest snooker players of all time. It looks to Guido like Hoey knows how to pick a winner: a good omen for the referendum…

Labour Leave to Meet Corbyn Today

labour+leave+panel

Guido has been down to the launch of Labour Leave, where Kate Hoey reminded the room that Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell have walked through the Commons voting lobby with the party’s Eurosceptics for decades. Asked if Corbyn wanted to Leave “in his heart of hearts”, Hoey replied:

“Well, I can’t speak for Jeremy.

Quote of the Day

Responding to Corbyn’s statement that the US should have arrested ISIS leader, al-Baghdadi, John Mann bluntly tweeted:

Baghdadi blew himself up with a suicide belt. An arrest might have been slightly difficult in these circumstances.”
