Greens Swerve Livingstone’s Membership Application

Today’s Guardian carries an eyebrow-raising report that Ken Livingston plans on applying to join the Green Party. Livingstone has been unaffiliated from any party after resigning his Labour membership in 2018 in the wake of his Hitler Zionism scandal. Despite the major controversy that would follow an admission into the party, the Greens’ press office were willing to only offer the following comment:

“We welcome everybody who shares our political aims and values to join the Green party.”

When pressed by Guido whether his comments on Hitler and Zionism align with the party’s values, he was merely told cases like Livingstone’s would have to go through a consultation process…

Livingstone now tells the party, “have me in!”, something Green peer Jenny Jones would be happy with, claiming that as his deputy mayor in City Hall she never saw any evidence of antisemitism. Livingston points out his record in City Hall is entirely congruent with Green Party values, not least introducing the congestion charge. I’ll tell you who else liked curbing air pollution

MP Compares Scrutiny over Historic Defence of Ken Livingstone to Murder of George Floyd

Former Ken Livingstone adviser Claudia Webbe MP has launched an extraordinary attack on those pointing out she wrote a letter in support of Livingstone, comparing them to the policeman who knelt on the neck of George Floyd. Twitter users pointing out the MP’s differing responses to alleged anti-black vs anti-Jewish racism were accused of “racist victimisation”…

In a remarkable Twitter exchange, those who shared an article by the Campaign Against Antisemitism on Webbe’s historic defence of Livingstone were themselves deemed “racist” by the hard-left MP. When reminded of her historic defence of Livingstone, Webbe stated

“Dear racist, I have a name – I am not an object you can so easily dismiss. I am Black, female and proud. I do not tolerate Antisemitism or racism of any kind…”

Webbe went on to claim that bringing up her past defence of Livingstone wasn’t scrutiny, likening those doing it to the killing of George Floyd by a US policeman, quoting his final words:

What scrutiny? This has been ongoing for many years now – get your knee off my neck”

She’s been comprehensively condemned from all sides of the political spectrum…

Claudia later commented, “To think this all started because I had the courage to call out the victimisation & pile-on I was experiencing simply for daring to call out the potential for institutional racism on the part of the Tory government; shame on you all; that’s why we say get your knee off our necks”. Doubling down…

Ken Livingstone Sticks His Foot In It

Ken Livingstone has been filmed sticking his foot in a tube door, attempting to get in the carriage despite closing doors. He consequently got stuck and held up the entire train…

One Twitter user who was at the scene commented on the situation saying:

“Ken Livingstone decided to hold up our train because he purposely stuck his foot in when the door was blatantly closing. Now I’m going to be late for work”

“He absolutely should know better there was a train literally behind waiting at a halt because of his fuckry.”

You know who got the trains to run on time?

Labour’s Anti-Semitic Conference Line-Up

A party’s conference is their opportunity to allow members to debate policy, market their party to donors, and show the public the best of what their party has to offer. The Labour party are ensuring they tick this last box this year with a number of very questionable fringe events this year, featuring Jackie Walker and Chris Williamson.

Labour conference-goers can also look forward to a “Labour Against the Witchhunt” meeting with Ken Livingstone and Jackie Walker. The problem for Labour is surely within their party these views are no longer fringe…

Labour Mayoral Candidate Said Zionism is as “Foul” as Nazism

Mansfield Labour are having a hard time with their local Mayoral campaign for the May elections. Their initial candidate, Paul Bradshaw, quit in January, having been forced out by the hard left of the party. A new significantly less moderate candidate, Sean McCallum, was selected on Wednesday evening…

Guido can reveal that McCallum is the author of deeply anti-Semitic posts on his personal Facebook account. In a bizarre rant defending the comments that got Ken Livingstone suspended from the Labour Party, he equated the genocidal evil of the Nazi regime with the existence of Israel as a country “nazism & zionism are equally foul.” This is going even further than Ken Livingstone did…

He also declared that he “can’t see anything even vaguely anti-Semitic” about Naz Shah’s infamous Facebook post that got her suspended from the Labour Party. Shah herself later acknowledged that “the language I used was anti-Semitic, it was offensive… What I did was I hurt people and the language that was the clear anti-Semitic language.”

At the time Jeremy Corbyn said “What Naz Shah did was offensive and unacceptable. I have spoken to her and made this clear.” When even Jeremy Corbyn describes what you’re sharing as offensive you know you’re in trouble…

UPDATE: Guido understands that the Labour Party has suspended Sean McCallum pending investigation. A party spokesperson said:

“The Labour Party takes all complaints of antisemitism extremely seriously and we are committed to challenging and campaigning against it in all its forms. All complaints about antisemitism are fully investigated in line with our rules and procedures and any appropriate disciplinary action is taken.”
