Owen Jones Mobbed By Silly Yellow Vests

Wannabe Yellow Vest protesters in Westminster seemed to confuse Lexit sympathising Owen Jones for a second referendum proponent. One asked him “how many people attended the [anti]-Brexit march”… that Jones did not attend or endorse. The half-dozen protesters really don’t do themselves any favours here…

Owen Jones Mass Deletes Thousands of Old Tweets

A handy feature of the ‘Deleted By MPs’ Twitter account is that it also notifies followers when a tweet retweeted by an MP disappears – meaning if someone who is regularly retweeted by MPs deletes a whole load of their old tweets, it’s easy to spot. This evening, it’s very easy to spot Owen Jones’ mass deleting spree. What is he trying to hide?

Owen Jones’ Reality Check for Remainers

Owen Jones had a reality check for the Remainers getting overexcited after Arron Banks was referred to the NCA yesterday. As hard as it is for SW1 to grasp, the vast majority of people don’t have lives which revolve entirely around Twitter…

Owen Jones Called for Fascists To Be “Punished With Death”

Fascism is a word that Owen Jones is usually very careful with. He has repeatedly stated that authoritarian leaders like General Pinochet could not be classified as fascists. Recently though Owen has been using the word with aplomb, saying that the Prime Minister of India, and President of the US are “sympathetic to” fascists, calling Italy’s Governing Lega Nord “semi-fascist”, and calling Brazil’s new President-elect, Jair Bolsonaro, an “overt fascist”. He has tweeted the word seventeen times this week alone.

In Owen’s eyes there is a global crisis of fascism and fascists around every corner. Fascists who can only be stopped by the hard-left. A handy global bogeyman…

Not to worry, young Owen has a solution (the internet never forgets) to dealing with the not-at-all-exaggerated threat of fascism and fascist tendencies once and for all!

Readers will remember that this isn’t the first time that young Owen’s message board days have resurfaced. Owen Jones called for fascists to be put to death, and those with illusions in fascism to be sent to corrective facilities. Just a taste of the foundational beliefs of those behind the Corbyn movement…

Owen Jones Cancels Building a New Britain

“Due to unforseen circumstances” Owen Jones has cancelled his one man show in Leeds. Guido’s man with the ticket stubs highlights “the poor ticket sales at Newcastle online – seating plan showed less than a hundred sold when the event disappeared from the website.” Owen’s tour with tickets at £20 seems to have stalled.

The Newcastle Box Office responded to a query saying “Unfortunately we have recently found out that the whole of Owen Jones’ tour has been cancelled.” Can this be true?

UPDATE: Owen responds:

“They got cancelled weeks ago for family reasons, along with campaigning events. Why would I cancel events months in advance over tickets.”

Fortunately he’s managed to make it to Birmingham for the Conservative Party conference…

Clause for Owen Jones Moment

Guardian journalists have today been emailed by the editor, Kath Viner, a detailed set of company “social media guidelines.” “This document explains how we expect Guardian News & Media (GNM) employees and contributors to behave on social media”. Guido – an occasional contributor to the Guardian – the word rate means it is not worth abiding by the rules at the cost of lost banter. Buried inside the document there is specific clause that was apparently included as a result of complaints about Guardian journalists baiting Owen Jones on Twitter in an uncomradely way.

The ‘Owen Jones Clause’ appears under the subheading of “Tone”.

“Do not use social media to air internal disputes with colleagues or contributors, or with the Guardian”

Traditionally a drunken punch up outside the Coach & Horses in Clerkenwell was the accepted way to resolve internal disputes between Guardian hacks. Bloody tweeting snowflakes…
