Salma Yaqoob Deletes all ‘Anti-Zionist’ Tweets

The hard left’s choice for Labour’s West Midland mayoral candidate, Salma Yaqoob, has been caught deleting hoards of Tweets, all of which contain the word Zionist. Yaqoob’s move to cover-up her past comments comes after it was revealed earlier this week she pushed a Rothschild conspiracy – a Tweet she has also since deleted. At some point, Owen Jones and others will surely have to retract their endorsements

The selection of tweets – which were preemptively archived in the name of politically transparency – include Yaqoob saying Zionists are active in promoting imperial wars; spoke of “Zionist crimes”; said “Zionist supporters can’t win moral argument”; called ‘Zionists’ heartless; and in a tweet to Theresa May’s former Chief of Staff, Gavin Barwell, used the phrase “O go away u Zionist troll”. 

Based on other Tweets from Yaqoob’s account that still exist, it is clear she and her team have deliberately targetted the word Zionist in the deleting spree. Did anyone think George Galloway’s former party leader wouldn’t come with this baggage?

Williamson Anticipates Readmission into Labour

Speaking to Chris Williamson in Brighton, Guido has learnt his court case against his former party will be ruled on this week, in which he anticipates a victorious result. He said he would then expect readmission into the Labour Party days after…

The MP’s case – whose ruling will undoubtedly be overshadowed by the Supreme Court’s ruling on Boris’s prorogation this Monday – was launched against the Labour Party in August, following his second suspension for comments about Labour’s antisemitism crisis in June 2019. Guido is looking forward to him speaking alongside fellow expellee Jackie Walker this evening

The news comes alongside a fractious day at Labour conference, following multiple attacks of the Labour Against the Witchhunt stall, a knife attack of the LAW poster and a retaliatory punching of one of their opponents. Williamson’s readmission is hardly likely to cool down tensions…

UPDATE: Looks like some top Corbynista’s aren’t waiting for Williamson’s readmission before getting friendly. Laura Pidcock has just been spotted having a catch up…

Labour’s Anti-Semitic Conference Line-Up

A party’s conference is their opportunity to allow members to debate policy, market their party to donors, and show the public the best of what their party has to offer. The Labour party are ensuring they tick this last box this year with a number of very questionable fringe events this year, featuring Jackie Walker and Chris Williamson.

Labour conference-goers can also look forward to a “Labour Against the Witchhunt” meeting with Ken Livingstone and Jackie Walker. The problem for Labour is surely within their party these views are no longer fringe…

Labour’s Finchley Candidate Apologises for Saying Antisemitism was ‘Weaponised’

Labour’s Finchley and Golders Green candidate has had to apologise for saying Labour’s Antisemitism crisis had been “weaponised”. Definitely not a great election strategy in any constituency, let alone one that is overwhelmingly Jewish…

Sara Conway told Jewish News that the argument over Labour’s successive Antisemitism scandals have been “whipped up”, however she has now climbed down, saying:

Another stellar candidate choice from the Labour Party…

UPDATE: Labour’s candidate has announced she is standing down “with immediate effect.”
