Williamson Attacks MSM for ‘Ignoring’ Prize He Didn’t Know About

Corbynistas have been in meltdown over the past week claiming that mainstream media outlets conspired to ignore a peace prize won by Jeremy Corbyn in September. Top Corbynista Chris Williamson today claimed there was a “blackout” on the news. Williamson was forced to admit that he didn’t actually know Corbyn had won the obscure award until last week – Labour and Corbyn’s team hadn’t publicised it.

Williamson also admitted he didn’t publicise news of the award himself despite his substantial social media presence. The prize, which is named for a former IRA commander, is so left-field it isn’t regularly reported anyway (UK papers have mentioned it twice since 1992). Corbynistas really need to choose their battles…

Labour’s “Easy Movement” Muddle

Unlucky Dawn Butler was tasked with explaining what Keir Starmer’s proposals for “easy movement” of people means this afternoon, and she did not rule out it could entail unlimited number of EU migrants coming to the UK after Brexit. Speaking on the Daily Politics, the Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities seemed unsure what Labour’s position on free movement would mean for migration:

“It means that… there has to be movement… well, that is something that he will then develop in terms of detail… we will need movement in people… we will need movement of people but it won’t look exactly as it looks now…”

Butler went on to say: “we never talk about caps on numbers.” Asked whether Labour’s proposals could mean an unlimited number of EU migrants coming to the UK, Butler said:

“I think to be honest that’s part of the negotiations… if we were round the negotiating table we could come back with more detail”

Meanwhile, the Labour manifesto opposes continued free movement. “Easy” movement not quite so easy…

Labour Won’t Rule Out Second Referendum, More Payments, “Easy If Not Free” Movement

Keir Starmer didn’t deny that Britain would become a “vassal state” of the EU under his proposals in a revealing interview that showed his party’s true colours on Brexit. Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary repeatedly refused to rule out his party backing a second referendum, saying only: “we haven’t called for a second referendum”. Under Labour’s proposed ‘Norway style’ treaty, Starmer accepted that there would be:

  • Continuing payments to the EU (“Norway pays money in, there may have to be payments”);
  • Close to free cross-border movement of labour, described as “easy movement if not free” (“the end of free movement does not mean no movement… of course we would want people to come from the EU to work here”);
  • Continued mapping of EU regulations and standards with a copy and paste approach – but with no say over them.

Starmer also didn’t deny that he would rather Britain stayed in the single market outright. This was a significant interview where Starmer showed his true hand. Labour has nothing to offer Brexit voters…

‘May Not Bringing Brexiteers With Her’

Pretty damning analysis from the Telegraph’s Juliet Samuel about the situation between Brexiteers and Number 10. Let’s hope this can all be resolved amicably when the Cabinet meets to discuss the end state later this month…

Pompous Benn Too Busy for Brexit Questions

The always pompous and unfailingly officious Hilary Benn was just too busy for any more questions on Brexit this morning, cutting off his Sky News interview after only a few minutes. No great loss…

Greatest NUS Election Video Ever

Tom Harwood is running the most honest NUS election campaign you will see, and he certainly has the best campaign video. He has already won the endorsement of Nick Boles, who says “Put this man in charge of Conservatives digital campaigning!” Speaking truth to the pious self-serving NUS lefties…

Why Do Corbyn and May Make Random Rambling Ranty Statements at PMQs?

Interesting theory from the BBC’s Joey D’Urso – are Jeremy Corbyn’s random ranty rambling non-questions at PMQs deliberately off topic because when clipped up into short videos and pumped out on social media they go viral with his followers? Every week Labour clip his statements and they get hundreds of thousands of views. They seem irrelevant to the small number who watch PMQs live, but look much better as stand alone Facebook videos.

The same theory could explain why Theresa May’s pre-scripted attacks on Corbyn often seem entirely irrelevant to the question:

Though perhaps we are giving them too much credit and they’re both just dire at PMQs.

Hammond: We’ll Pay Divorce Bill Even If There’s No Deal

Well done Phil, great negotiating tactic.

Hammond: We Don’t Know What We Want From Brexit End State

Philip Hammond has confirmed to the Treasury select committee that the Cabinet still hasn’t discussed what the Brexit end state will look like, i.e. whether it will be the convergence non-Brexit preferred by him, Jeremy Heywood and Olly Robbins, or a real Brexit in which we properly diverge from the EU. It has been 18 months since the referendum, it’s mad the Cabinet has not even discussed what Brexit Britain will look like. If the government has no idea on the end state, are they even ready to move onto the next stage of talks?

Davis: Economic Models Always Prove Wrong

Davis admitting the government has carried out no Brexit impact assessments is not going to go down well.

He’s got a point about economic models though… 

Starmer: UK Should Remain in Single Market and Customs Union

Sir Keir Starmer says the UK should leave open the option of staying in the single market and customs union. 18 months have passed since we voted to Leave and still Labour haven’t progressed from here. Labour’s position means continuing freedom of movement. It is not Brexit. What do their voters think of this?

Stanley Steals Nation’s Heart With Wife’s I’m A Celeb Poem

Stanley Johnson is proving quite the star on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. Last night’s episode featured a moving poem penned by his wife, to whom Stanley winningly declared his love. He’s going down very well with the fans…

Stanley is providing almost all of the show’s laughs. Here he is rallying the troops before Toff’s bushtucker trial and singing a song about driving an Audi to an Aldi.

King of the jungle?

DUP: Northern Ireland Must Leave EU on Same Terms As Rest of UK

As of 2pm it looks like the UK has agreed to “regulatory alignment” on both sides of the Irish border, a compromise which is not the same as no divergence between Northern Ireland and the EU. The DUP are clear Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the UK and they will not accept being separated economically from the rest of the UK. Lot of noise from Sturgeon and Remainers today. But all eyes are on the DUP and Cabinet Brexiteers when the formal statement comes later…

Steve Hilton to Donald Trump: Give Britain “Big, Beautiful Trade Deal”

Steve Hilton,  Cameron’s former barefoot guru, is dishing out strategy advice on Fox News these days, and this isn’t a bad idea for the President to consider. As recompense for his terrible tweeting last week he should get the UK-USA trade deal done. If the Trump does railroad a good trail deal through, Guido will be waving the US flag on the Mall when he visits…

McDonnell Skewered Over Labour’s Slippery Sums

John McDonnell was again unable to put a figure on the cost of nationalisation or on lifting the public sector pay cap this morning during a masterful skewering of Labour’s economic fantasies. Interviewed on Sunday With Paterson, McDonnell was first confronted on Labour’s slippery sums and their tendency to change. Then the Shadow Chancellor repeated his mantra that nationalisation “will pay for itself”. He claimed it would be “cost free”…

Finally, McDonnell was unable to give a figure for lifting the public sector pay cap. He said: “we’ve costed it within the thing”…

Not a good interview, especially since the Shadow Chancellor has been asked the very same questions on his last few broadcast appearances. Must stop forgetting that iPad…

Top Corbyn Ally Last Night: “Cops Can F**k Off”, Abolish Prisons, Stella is “Sh*t”

A top Corbynista who claims to advise Jeremy Corbyn’s team told a panel event last night that prisons should be abolished and “the cops can f**k off”, Guido can reveal. Lefty campaigner Mika Minio-Paluello told an event hosted by pro-Corbyn website Novara Media yesterday: “I’m the chair of my local branch and I’ve also been doing various advice for Corbyn’s team and for Labour centre”.[…] Read the rest

Former public schoolboy Chuka Umunna told the  ‘Exit From Brexit Dinner’…

“Remainians, Remoaners, I don’t care what the label is, I’m proud. It’s fashionable to label everyone in this room as the liberal metropolitan elite . . . This caricature is promoted by a bunch of former public schoolboys!”
