Labour MP’s Evening Pity Plea Spectacularly Backfires

Labour MP and former leadership candidate Mary Creagh has been branded “painfully out of touch” after whinging about a late night at work on Twitter. She tweeted to complain that she was still waiting to speak at 10:45pm. The MP, who earns £77,379 plus expenses, was inundated by exasperated replies from hard-working nurses, police officers and others for whom waiting in the plush and warm surroundings of the Palace of Westminster to speak in a debate isn’t exactly the most pity-inducing thing in the world…

“The party of working people”…

UKIP Endorse Labour’s Ultra-Remain Creagh Over Tories

It’s unusual to see UKIP backing a Labour candidate, especially so when that Labour candidate is an arch-Remainer who voted against triggering Article 50. UKIP are not running in Wakefield and the party’s candidate in the neighbouring seat is instead urging voters to choose Mary Creagh over the Brexit-backing Tory. UKIP’s candidate in Normanton Lewis Thompson says:

“I’m urging the people of Wakefield to vote Labour. We can’t let the Tories get a huge majority.” 

Wakefield is a winnable Tory target seat: the Labour majority is 2,613. Creagh is a huge Remainer, she said in February that she could no more vote against EU membership than she could vote against her “own DNA”. The Tory candidate Antony Calvert is an avowed Brexiter and the constituency voted 66% to Leave. UKIP’s councillors in Wakefield are backing Calvert, so why is their parliamentary candidate in Normanton backing Labour?

Creagh: Vote Remain For Dolphins in the Thames

Creagh River

Mary Creagh has come up with a brilliant environmental justification for staying in the EU. Apparently we have Brussels to thank for “seals and even dolphins making regular appearances down river… where once it was dangerous to swim or swallow the water, it is now safe for humans and wildlife”. Righto…

Does Creagh’s argument that “the EU played a huge part in these environmental improvements” stack up? Well, the EU’s $100 billion-a-year Emissions Trade Scheme infamously bankrolled a scam allowing Chinese and Indian firms to generate a harmful greenhouse gas called HFC-23, then claim money from European taxpayers to destroy it. The Environmental Investigation Agency called it the “biggest environmental scandal in history”. Even if EU membership means we can drink from the Thames, not sure that makes up for the millions of taxpayer cash blown on a greenhouse gas scam…

Mary Creagh Doesn’t Like Rubik’s Politics

Mary Creagh’s coded attack on Ed Miliband…

‘I want the country to be united behind a single vision, we aren’t going to do it by sort of having a Rubik’s Cube approach to politics’. 

Labour MPs’ Public Declarations of Support

lab-dec-guages

These are the latest numbers for Labour MPs who have openly declared who they will be supporting. Despite rumours of a 100 or more MPs being willing to nominate Burnham, only 24 have backed the openly socialist candidate. Leadership candidates need 35 nominations to go through to Labour’s first one person, one vote leadership election…

All of the Labour Party leadership candidates are scions of privilege:

PPE, Balliol College, Oxford.

Mary Creagh:
Languages, Pembroke College, Oxford.

Liz Kendall:
History, Queens’ College, Cambridge.

Doctor the Honourable Tristram Julian William Hunt:
History, Trinity College, Cambridge.

All white, all Oxbridge and all bar one even have the same haircut!

That Sh*t Creagh!

Fifty-four minutes. That’s how long you last in the Labour Party if you break the line.

Like fellow right-winger Jim Murphy before her, Mary Creagh is said to be absolutely seething about her brutal demotion to the political wilderness of shadow International Development. ‘Fuming’ was how one shadow ministerial ally put it to Guido at the weekend.

Cynical sources point to Creagh’s claim in the transport debate on Wednesday that: “I have nothing against privatisation”.

Fifty-four minutes after saying those words in the Commons, she was sacked.

Welcome to Miliband’s “new politics”.

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.”
