Corbynista MP Refers Himself For Deselection

Wacky Labour Corbynista Lloyd Russell-Moyle has today submitted himself to face a vote of confidence amongst his local members. In an email obtained by LabourList, Russell-Moyle wrote to local members saying that as he was imposed on the local party in 2017 by Labour’s NEC, he will only re-stand with the support of the local membership.

“In 2017 in the snap general election I was imposed by the NEC as your candidate in the election with grassroots members not having a say in my selection. I pledged that I would not re-stand unless I had the confidence of the members.

“Using an anonymous third party voting organisation, members will be emailed with a poll asking if they support me staying on as the Labour candidate with the results being given to the CLP executive directly.”

Russel-Moyle, who supports mandatory re-selection of Labour MPs, should be congratulated for standing by his principles. Labour MPs under the ‘trigger ballot system’ will not face an automatic vote of their membership unless more than one third of local party branches or affiliated branches oppose their candidacy. Labour MPs have until July 8 to indicate if they would like to continue their candidacy or not…

Corbynista MP Invites “Curse the Jews” Movement Spokesman to Parliament

Nutty ginger Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle has only been in Parliament two years but he’s got his tribute act to his heroes Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell up and running with impressive speed. His latest stunt is inviting the international spokesman for the Iran-backed Houthi rebel group in Yemen, Ahmed Alshami, to Parliament. Their slogan includes “death to the US, death to Israel, curse the Jews”. He’ll fit right in with the Corbynistas…

Russell-Moyle has already called fellow Labour MP Graham Jones a “tit” and “illegal arms sales apologist” for criticising his decision to invite Alshami. Meanwhile there’s not been a peep from the Labour Party or Corbyn himself so far. Best not to upset his old friends at Press TV after all…

UPDATE: Russell-Moyle has finally backed down. Old Comrade Corbyn would never have caved in so easily…

Diane Abbott Launched Report by Notorious Conspiracist who Defended Ken Livingstone’s Zionist Hitler Theories

Labour’s Diane Abbott and Lloyd Russell-Moyle were busy on Tuesday night speaking at the launch of a new report from ‘Spinwatch’ in Parliament. Spinwatch is one of the many projects of Bristol University Professor David Miller, a prolific conspiracy theorist who recently condemned Ken Livingstone’s treatment by the Labour Party as “absurd” and a “disgrace”, said there was nothing “historically inaccurate” about Livingstone’s comments about Hitler and Zionism and dismissed the fears of Jewish students on campus as “propaganda”. Miller himself was suspended from the Labour Party over anti-Semitism before being swiftly reinstated

Miller has a range of different Wikipedia-style ‘watch’-sites profiling tens of thousands of people supposedly involved in “corporate capture, political spin and lies”, including Powerbase and the now defunct SpinProfiles. Miller’s websites seem to take a particular interest in the racial origins of people they profile. If they happen to be Jewish

One of Miller’s other sites, Neocon Europe, published extensive writings from notoriously racist academic Kevin MacDonald, presented as an impartial analysis of “Jewish influence”. Spinwatch itself is funded by Islamist-linked organisations including MEND, Interpal and the Cordoba Foundation, which David Cameron described as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. What on earth is the Shadow Home Secretary doing associating with an organisation like this?

Labour MP’s Shameless LGBT Hypocrisy Over Andrea Leadsom

At PMQs this afternoon, mace-wielding prat Lloyd Russell-Moyle accused Andrea Leadsom of having said that “parents should decide when they are exposed to LGBT education,” whipping out the accusation that this was “Conservative Party dog-whistle politics.” The only problem is that Andrea Leadsom didn’t say that at all…

What Leadsom actually said was that she supports LGBT relationship education:

“It’s absolutely vital that children do grow up understanding the society they live in and they grow up tolerant, seeking equality and respecting differences… I think it is the case that you have to allow parents to choose to withdraw their children up to a certain age, but at the same time in order to have an equal society there comes a point where children do need to understand the social norms around them.”

Curiously, Russell-Moyle hasn’t said anything about the Labour MP Shabana Mahmood who has been directly supporting the parents in Birmingham who are campaigning against LGBT-inclusive education, in effect supporting a new Section 28. Even Owen Jones condemned her, but somehow Russell-Moyle hasn’t said a word on it. Somehow Russell-Moyle forgot to jump on board the outrage bus when its destination wasn’t a partisan attack on a Tory…

Labour MP Grabs Mace

Heseltine wannabe MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle attempted to steal the show this evening by flouncing down the chamber of the House of Commons and grabbing the Ceremonial Mace to suspend the Commons sitting in protest at the Government postponing the meaningful vote on Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement. Famously Michael Heseltine performed the same stunt in protest of Labour’s nationalisations in 1976. The last Member to seize the mace was John McDonnell in 2009 over Heathrow expansion…

Thirty Two year old Russel-Moyle was first elected in 2017. He has now been named by the Speaker and ordered to withdraw from the house for the remainder of the sitting. After grabbing the mace, Russel-Moyle sheepishly gave it back, not even taking the opportunity to brandish it above his head like Hezza. Embarrassing… 

Corbynista Calls for State to Confiscate His Company

Carrot-topped Corbynista Lloyd Russell-Moyle gave a taster of things to come under a future Labour government when he told a pro-Corbyn rally that Labour would order mass compulsory purchases of former council houses sold off under Thatcher’s immensely successful Right-to-Buy scheme. This wasn’t far enough for Russell-Moyle, who also told the rally: “Let’s not just talk about council houses – let’s get those bloody private houses back into our hands.” The hard left just can’t resist the allure of confiscating private property…

Russell-Moyle will be hoping that Corbyn’s commissars don’t start off their mass confiscations in his own constituency of Brighton Kemptown, where a certain Mr Lloyd Russell-Moyle happens to be a significant shareholder, Director and Company Secretary of Arlington Mews Management Company, which according to his declared financial interests owns the freehold of a residential block. Arlington Mews consists of 5 properties with total estimated value of £1.8 million, while Russell-Moyle himself pockets over £10,000 a year from lodgers in the property. Expropriation of homes should start with taking his private property back into public hands…

FCO and MoD Fury at “Utterly Reckless” Labour Syria Trip

The Foreign Office and Ministry of Defence have expressed fury after a Labour MP and peer travelled to Syria earlier this month in defiance of government travel advice. Lloyd Russell-Moyle and Maurice Glasman travelled to Kobani on 4 April, with the Corbynista MP extraordinarily live-tweeting his location as the delegation moved through Syria. The first the FCO and MoD knew about the trip was when they received intelligence that a British MP and peer were in Syria. This sparked panic across the two departments, with officials furious that the lives of British armed forces would be put at risk if they had to be sent in should something go wrong.

The FCO clearly advises “against all travel to Syria” and warns “there is a very high threat of kidnapping throughout Syria”. A serving MP’s decision to defy this advice and then live-tweet his location has led some Whitehall officials to lobby for an investigation into the trip. Officials at the Ministry of Justice and Home Office are worried that the visit could legitimise others considering travelling to Syria, and have expressed concerns about the impact the trip could have on ongoing court cases involving other Britons who have returned from the country.

A government source said: “This was an utterly reckless act that could have led to our armed forces being put in danger had they been kidnapped. It is mind-numbingly stupid given the political climate and could have severe consequences in terms of ongoing court cases over here.”

A second government source said: “Travel advice is very clear – by going to a dangerous region you are not only putting yourself at risk but also the individuals who would have to take part in a rescue operation. It’s incredibly stupid of an MP to do this and shows a real lack of judgement.”

Russell-Moyle wrote up his experience in Syria for the far-left website Evolve Politics and spoke about it at the Stop the War rally last night. Taking the Corbynista delusion on Syria to new stupid extremes…

UPDATE: Statement from Russell-Moyle:

“I did inform the FCO before I departed, informing them of our movements. I met with UK Ambassador in Iraq, the UK Consul-General in Erbil before & with him on the day we returned to debrief. We received security protection form Gov. of Kurdish Iraq and Northern Syrian Government.”

Yet the first the FCO and MoD heard about the trip was while he was there…

Top Corbynista MPs Attend Pro-Assad Rally

Labour MPs tonight joined a pro-Assad rally alongside protesters with flags, hats and scarves bearing the face of the Syrian tyrant. Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon, Chris Williamson, Emma Dent Coad and Lloyd Russell-Moyle were among those present at this evening’s Stop the War demo at Parliament Square. Williamson told an audience waving pro-Corbyn placards and communist flags that there was no evidence for the Douma chemical attack and that Assad had no motive to carry it out. Echoing Kremlin talking points, Williamson said:

“Why would the Assad regime at this stage of the appalling conflict in Syria, where he’s virtually won the battle for Eastern Ghouta, launch a chemical weapons attack when it would be bound to bring on the wrath of the West? … The motive is questionable, the evidence – where is the evidence? It just isn’t there. And it’s no coincidence, it seems to me, that on the day before the OPCW inspectors were due to start their inspection, these air strikes took place. What is going on? There are very serious questions, it seems to me, that need to be answered.”

One Assad supporter told Guido said the Syrian leader had not done anything illegal and that it was the UK parliament that was acting illegally. He added his message to Jeremy Corbyn was “well done”.

Corbyn’s Labour…

New Labour MP Mocked Thatcher’s Death and Called Tories “Scum”

The election result has left Labour’s compliance unit with quite a few new MPs who they weren’t expecting to make it to the Commons. Guido is only too happy to welcome them to Westminster, starting with new Brighton Kemptown MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle. The carrot top Corbynista is a Momentum fan, hardcore socialist and self-proclaimed “Trot” who once tweeted a link to the “IsThatcherDeadYet.co.uk” website, telling his followers he was “Keeping track of when Maggie Thatcher finally cops it”. He also liked “Yes, Margaret Thatcher is dead” on Facebook. What a charmer.

Other words of wisdom from Russell-Moyle include calling Cameron and Osborne “scum” and declaring “I’d rather be a Trot than a Tory any day”. What lucky constituents he has…

Momentum Man Takes Over Brighton Labour

Three months ago Nancy Platts, the chairman of Brighton Labour, left to work for Jeremy Corbyn. This weekend she was replaced by another Corbynista, the splendidly-named Lloyd Russell-Moyle. His politics are as red as his carrot top.

CND supporter Russell-Moyle features prominently on the Facebook page of Brighton Momentum, the local branch of the far-left campaign group. Here he is handing out leaflets with Momentum activists:

The first question for Russell-Moyle is what he thinks about Corbyn’s reported plan not to run a Labour candidate against the Greens in Brighton Pavilion, so he can protect his old friend Caroline Lucas. Will the Momentum-backing chair of Brighton CLP stand up for Brighton Labour, or give in to the Greens?
