Labour Cultists

Phil Wilson speaks truth to cultists

“The print media has always held an anti-Labour bent, but has never stopped the election of Labour governments in the past. The lesson is: if you believe the press is not your natural ally, don’t make it easy for them. If you don’t want the press to write you are a terrorist sympathiser, don’t lay a wreath at the grave of a terrorist. If you don’t want the press to write you are a friend of Hamas or Hezbollah, don’t call them your friends. If you don’t want the press to write you associate with the IRA, don’t associate with the IRA. If you don’t want the press to doubt your patriotism, don’t give Russia the benefit of the doubt over the Salisbury poisonings or take money from Iranian state media. If you want the press to highlight your aversion to antisemitism, don’t share a platform with known anti-Semites and defend antisemitic murals.”

Pidcock Tries to Weasel Out of Latest Anti-Semitism Row

Laura Pidcock last night launched into a tirade against Twitter users, including some of her fellow Labour MPs, who were critical of the fact that her adviser was caught calling telling journalists that it was “really unfair” for them to be asking questions on Labour’s anti-Semitism crisis. How dare they ask a Labour shadow minister to comment on the biggest story surrounding her party?

Instead of addressing the issue, her explanation tries to sneakily move the goalposts, accusing Labour MPs of retweeting the footage to “suggest that I had avoided these questions”. That was never the issue, nobody claimed she refused to answer, the issue was the hostility towards the media over the issue…

Now Wes Streeting and Phil Wilson have both called Pidcock out for trying to weasel out of it like this, making clear that they weren’t accusing her of not answering the questions but that they disagreed with the way she answered them. Pidcock following the classic Corbyn playbook of deflect, distract and attack…

People’s Vote Now Claim No Deal Will Kill People

The People’s Vote campaign are ramping Project Fear back up to 2016 levels in a desperate bid for attention. Now they’ve put out a massively over-the-top quote from Sedgefield Labour MP Phil Wilson literally claiming that No Deal will kill people. Specifically Northerners:

“We know the North will be hit first and worst through a destructive No Deal Brexit but this analysis is still shocking. The real tragedy is in stories of communities affected: people will be made poorer, lives will be made shorter, opportunities will get pushed further away.”

Donald Tusk hasn’t got long left as European Council President, People’s Vote better get on to him quickly to get another quote about the end of Western Civilisation…
