Dromey Repeatedly Swears During Abuse Debate

Completely inexplicable from Jack Dromey, who repeatedly swore during a Daily Politics discussion on abusive language in politics, before being told to pack it in by Andrew Neil. What was he thinking? Did he have a bet on?

Freedom-Hating Socialism is Back: Using Uber “Not Morally Acceptable”

This morning Guido was driven in an Uber by a student who liked the work because he could log on whenever he had spare time and whenever he liked. Choice, convenient for buyer and seller. Corbyn’s authoritarian Labour would run them off the road…

Tory MP Anne Marie Morris N-Word Shocker

Anne Marie Morris has an 17,000 majority should this end up with a by-election. The LibDems almost won the seat in 2010. Uh oh…

Full story on HuffPost.

UPDATE: Tory spokesman: “We are aware of these reports. This kind of language is completely unacceptable and we are urgently investigating.”

UPDATE II: Anne Marie Morris: “The comment was totally unintentional. I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused.”

UPDATE III: Theresa May: “I think it is beholden on us all that we use appropriate language at all times.”

UPDATE IV: Labour’s Andrew Gwynne:

“Anne Marie Morris’ comments are outrageous and totally unacceptable. Theresa May once spoke about changing the Tories’ ‘Nasty Party’ tag. If she’s serious about that, she will admit it’s not enough for the Tories to ‘investigate’ and will apologise and act immediately. If that means withdrawing the whip, that’s what they should do.”

Bungling Burgon’s Question Time Shocker

Terminally awkward Richard Burgon had a shocker on last night’s Question Time. First he was heckled by an audience member who accused Labour of putting the public sector ahead of job-creating employers. Then he was laughed into silence when he attempted to argue that Labour campaigned “passionately” in the EU referendum. Classic Burgon moments. Even Rebecca Long-Bailey would have done better…

May’s Defiant Defence of Austerity

With the focus on the economy, sound money and Labour’s record, Theresa May delivered one of her best ever PMQs performances. She doubled down on her support for austerity and slapped down the Boris / Hunt / Greening Torbynistas – Tory backbenchers loved it. Almost as if the Tories should have mentioned the economy occasionally during the election…

THE BREXORCIST: Paranormal Expert is New Tory MEP

Readers may remember how back in 2011 CCHQ tried their utmost to stop Rupert Matthews from becoming an MEP. Six years later Matthews has made it, he was the next on the list to fill the MEP slot vacated by new MP Andrew Lewer. Matthews is an interesting chap: “I’ve been investigating the paranormal for the past 20 years. I’ve researched ghosts… but don’t just take my word for it”. Enjoy his video “Paranormal Studies: Our Paranormal Universe Class” above…

Anne Waters Mitty: Strike-Backing Socialist and Self-Proclaimed “Left-Winger”

UKIP’s anti-Islam leadership candidate Anne Marie Waters can be revealed as a strike-supporting socialist and trade unionist who played an active role in the Labour Party for a decade and described her political views as “standard left-wing”. Waters is the supposedly hard-right, Tommy Robinson-endorsed candidate in the UKIP leadership race. UKIP figures are concerned she is a Walter Mitty character, self-publicist and entryist who has taken a less than credible political journey. A 2011 video obtained by Guido shows Waters, then a prospective Labour candidate in Thurrock, talking up her socialist credentials:

Most of what I believe would be standard left-wing… I believe in what I believe in. I believe in a strong public sector, I believe in the NHS. If there was a traditional left-wing, yes… that’s what I believe in…

I definitely endorse the right to strike and I think the Labour Party needs to stand up for the right to strike more often… I always support the trade unionists, I’m naturally inclined to support the trade unionists and I think Labour needs to reconnect with the trade unions… Generally I support strikers and certainly I support the right to strike…

The first issue and the one I am most concerned about is the NHS. I think we’ve lost sight of why we had an NHS. We’ve lost sight of why the Labour Party created the NHS and we need to return to those principles. And it’s under very sustained attack now by the Tories. They’re gonna try and do now what Thatcher couldn’t do, which was entirely privatise the NHS.”

Words which will rule her out as an option for traditional UKIP members.

Guido can reveal Waters was a Labour Party member for ten years. She was a Labour council candidate in London and ran to be Labour’s parliamentary candidate in Brighton Pavilion. In her 2013 resignation letter – deleted from the internet but obtained by Guido – Waters says she “spent endless hours canvassing, door-knocking, minute-taking (as constituency secretary) and I held several posts at branch, constituency, and borough level”.

There is of course a long tradition of left-wing nationalists, from Oswald Mosley to Marine Le Pen. Though Waters’ political journey from Milibandite to the female Tommy Robinson suggests she is not so principled. UKIP supporters have taken to calling her “Anne Waters Mitty”…

Shadow Minister: Rebel Labour MPs Will Be Deselected

Venezuela-loving, Momentum-backed retread MP and new Corbynista shadow minister Chris Williamson has threatened Labour MPs with deselection if they rebel against the dear leader:

“MPs need to reflect the political programme that is overwhelmingly supported by Labour members and Labour supporters and if people aren’t prepared to do that then it will be up to Labour members in their constituencies to find someone else who will.”

If Corbyn critics think they are going to be forgiven they are naive in the extreme…

Vid va ITV.

Bungling Burgon Inflates Protest Numbers Tenfold

Labour’s Richard Burgon was questioned on Guido’s story about the disturbing placards at yesterday’s Corbynista rally on the Sunday Politics. In response Burgon claimed there were 150,000 people at the demo. The Mirror says 10,000 attended, the Times says 10,000 attended, the BBC reports 15,000 attended. Definitely not 150,000. Straight out of the Trump playbook of making up crowd numbers. Or was Diane doing the counting?
