Tory Videos on Labour’s Student Debt U-Turn Hit 1.3 Million Views in 3 Days

Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner is under heavy fire in the Commons over Labour’s student debt u-turn. Sarah Champion threw Corbyn under the bus on the Daily Politics earlier rather than defend the broken promise. Over on Facebook, Tory videos on Jezza’s fantasy policy shambles have now been viewed 1.3 million times in three days, and shared over 50,000 times – more than the vast majority (possibly all) of anti-Labour posts during the election. This is hurting, and deservedly so…

Corbyn-IRA Attack Video Hits Million Views

Those wondering about the Facebook digital advertising battlefield should note that the Tories have broken the million views barrier for this attack advert. Labour’s top video has by comparison been seen 324,000 times, just ahead of the top LibDem video which has had 308,000 views. Corbynistas who think the Corbyn / IRA alliance is not a charged third rail issue are deluding themselves…

UPDATE: Has now had 2 million views. Gone properly viral…

New Tory Attack Ad Hits Corbyn on Defence

Guido brings you the first Tory attack advert on Corbyn on defence this election. Short and sweet, it hits Jez hard on Nato, Trident, shoot-to-kill and his call to abolish the army. Turns out 23 seconds of footage is all you need to show he isn’t fit to lead. A taste of things to come…

Red on Red McCluskey Attack Video Focuses on Murky Finances

This anti-McCluskey attack video aims to go viral online. It lists a number of the financial shenanigans that Len McCluskey has got up to. Will it reach voters? Unite’s last leadership election had only a 15% turnout with two-thirds of the votes going to Red Len. This time he has an even more left-wing opponent taking votes off him as well as a moderate rival. The battle for control of the Labour Party’s paymaster has important long-term ramifications for British politics…

Tories: Corbyn “Collaborating With Russia”

The Tories are starting to go big on Corbyn’s call to decommission nuclear power plants, releasing this attack ad tonight. Meanwhile the MoD goes in hard after Corbyn’s spokesman criticises Nato for “escalations of tensions” with Russia. Armed forces minister Mike Penning says:

“the Labour Leader would rather collaborate with Russian aggression than mutually support Britain’s NATO allies”

Copeland by-election campaign under way…

Brutal Tory Attack Ad Says Labour Soft on ISIS

Owen Smith’s disastrous day yesterday has inspired the Tories to produce this attack advert repeating their line that Labour is a threat to national security. Whoever wins…

BBC Admits Running Remain Adverts In “Error”

bbc ads

Yesterday, Guido reported that the BBC was running official Remain campaign adverts on its website abroad – targeting expat voters. This is despite the fact it has consistently denied taking pro-EU cash…

A Beeb spokesman gets in touch to confirm they did indeed run the adverts, in “error”:

“This advert appeared outside the UK as the result of a third party error and was blocked as soon as we were alerted to it. We are investigating how this happened and we are taking steps to prevent this happening in the future.”

“Third party” adverts can be filtered to avoid marketing content that is inappropriate for your organisation. Something the BBC clearly didn’t do…

Brexit: the Animated Movie

Ahead of the Brexit: The Movie premiere next week here is Brexit: The Animation. It is pretty good and was created by Piffle.

Guido would go as far as to say it is the best animation of the campaign, from either side, so far…

Here Come the Attack Ads

Clinton’s first attack ad since Trump all but secured the nomination uses his Republican rivals’ words against him. You gonna take that, Donald?

Trump’s Barking New Attack Ad

The Donald unleashes his attack dogs on Hillary…

Trump On Women

Notable that this killer attack ad was funded by the Republican Our Principles PAC…

Ted Cruz Rap Ad “Damn It Feels Good To Be A Clinton”

Don’tcha just love American attack ads…

Cruz Attack Ad “Trump Action Figure”

Ken Pushes New Zac Attack on Sadiq

This is the new Tory attack poster on Sadiq Khan released this morning, ramming home the line that Labour’s mayoral candidate is “Corbyn’s man in City Hall”. Sadiq nominated Corbyn for leader and has since been attempting an unconvincing differentiation strategy. So he won’t be thrilled to see Ken Livingstone has just helpfully parroted the very same Tory attack line in the Standard.

In an article headlined “London needs to vote for Jeremy Corbyn’s vision of a better city”, Ken tells voters that “Corbyn has the right economic policy” and “he is the last chance we’ve got to create a fairer world”. The former London mayor agrees with Zac – Sadiq is Corbyn’s man in City Hall. Good news for Khan is at least Ken isn’t backing his old mate George Galloway…

Tories Launch Corbyn Attack Video

As Corbyn refuses to speak to the media, the Tories let his words speak for themselves… 

George Osborne v George Osborne

Labour have helpfully dug out this video of Osborne critcising unfunded spending commitments just 12 weeks ago:

“making spending committments is the easiest thing in the world. Spending commitments are superficially attractive. They get ready applause from lobby groups. They get you headlines. But unfunded spending commitments are made with borrowed money and the price is paid by future taxpayers”.

A few weeks later and Osborne pledged £8 billion in unfunded NHS spending commitments…

Inheritance Tax Highlights Millionaire Miliband’s Hypocrisy

The Tories are going to make it a manifesto commitment (again) to raise the inheritance tax threshold so that only millionaires pay it. David Cameron is giving a speech today highlighting the issue. This morning Harman was less than convincing on Marr about the Milibands’ own efforts to avoid the inheritance tax threshold. Why would the Milibands – as Harman claims – pay expensive lawyers to produce a Deed of Variation to not avoid tax?*

CCHQ’s promotion for their manifesto commitment looks like this:

ihtgraphic

Guido’s version would look like this:

IHT-MILIBAND

Not positive enough?

*Guido’s informed guess is that they entirely avoided paying inheritance tax at the time. Later Ed Miliband and David Miliband probably had to pay some lesser amount of capital gains tax when they realised their profits on the difference in the value they had inherited tax free and the price they received for their shares of what was the family home when it was eventually sold.

New LibDem Attack Ad: “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” For Ed

The LibDems try to outdo the Greens with a musical attack ad of their own. Guido preferred “I’m sorry”…

Miliband v Murdoch

The Tories have hit back with a fresh attack ad from last night:

Ed Miliband thinks he's tough, but Labour MPs think he's just not up to it.SHARE this to let friends decide for themselves.

Quote of the Day

Alan Sugar on Jeremy Corbyn:

“It’s clear you alluded to students refunds to get votes from young impressionable people. You are a cheat and should resign.”
