Labour Clear “Holocaust-Mongers” Candidate

Labour’s parliamentary candidate in the marginal seat of North Swindon Kate Linnegar has reportedly been let off, after an internal investigation concluded saying no further action will be taken.

Linnegar (who ran the Swindon People’s Assembly) had previously been forced to distance herself from a Swindon People’s Assembly Twitter account bearing her face which posted about the Rothschilds, Zion “scum” and “fake Jews”. Her own personal facebook account also defended suspended Labour activist Jackie Walker, and Hitler obsessive Ken Livingstone. She’s welcome back in Corbyn’s Labour Party…

Labour Parliamentary Candidate Posted About “Holocaust-Mongers”, Defended Jackie Walker

Earlier this week Labour’s parliamentary candidate in the marginal seat of North Swindon was forced to distance herself from a Twitter account which sent a string of shocking anti-Semitic tweets. Kate Linnegar denied all responsibility for the posts from a Swindon People’s Assembly account which used her face as the profile picture. Well, Guido has found some more posts on her personal Facebook page, which she definitely did post herself. The first link to an interview with Norman Finkelstein accuses moderate Labour MPs who criticised Naz Shah over her anti-Semitism scandal of being “Holocaust-mongers”, and defends Shah and Ken Livingstone.

The second link defends Jackie Walker, who was twice suspended by Labour for anti-Semitism:

Are Labour going to do anything about this clearly awful candidate in a key marginal?

Labour Parliamentary Candidate Distances Herself From Rothschilds, ‘Zion Scum’ and ‘Fake Jews’ Tweets

Labour’s newly selected parliamentary candidate in the marginal seat of North Swindon has been forced to distance herself from a Twitter account which posted about the Rothschilds, Zion “scum” and “fake Jews”. In April, Kate Linnegar was selected to fight the next election in a seat that is seen as a must-win if Labour is to have any chance of forming a government. Linnegar, a Corbynista who has been involved in local left-wing activism for years, ran the Swindon People’s Assembly. Her face is the profile picture for the group’s Twitter account. Though she denies any involvement with the following tweets…

The account bearing Linnegar’s face has ranted about the Rothschilds:

It posted about “fake Jews”:

It described pop star Zayn Malik as “another Zion slave”:

Some other pleasantries:

A South West Labour party spokesperson said: “Kate Linnegar has no involvement with these tweets or the running of this twitter account. Her image has been used in the profile picture without her consent.” Seems a very serious case of identity fraud, hope they catch the culprit…

Labour Drop Punchy Parliamentary Candidate

Last month Guido revealed the interesting social media activity of Labour’s parliamentary candidate in Welwyn Hatfield, Tara Mary Lyons. Tara had tweeted about punching Prince William, “dumb bitches” and “swinging a f**king punch”, among other things. Following Guido’s story, she has now been dropped as the candidate. The Sunday Times also has another story saying she owes nearly half a million quid to HMRC. When she isn’t turning the air blue on Twitter and talking about punching people, Tara spends her time tweeting about public services suffering from “Tory cuts”. Half a million quid would help a few services in Welwyn Hatfield…

Lewisham Labour Frontrunner Compared Palestine to Holocaust

The frontrunner to be Labour’s candidate in Lewisham East compared the Israel-Palestine conflict to the Holocaust, Guido can reveal. Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, who is the bookies’ favourite and is being backed by Team Corbyn, equated Israel to the Nazis and claimed Palestinians were victims of a “genocide”. She wrote on her Facebook page on Holocaust Memorial Day last year: “Today is the day when we remember all those affected by the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur – I’m adding Palestinian to the list”. A very stupid comment, to say the least. Will the Corbynistas still stitch up the selection for her anyway?

  • Miqdad Al-Nuaimi was suspended as a councillor for anti-Semitism but then reinstated
  • Andrew Slack was suspended as a councillor but then reinstated

On this evidence, it’s hard not to conclude that the parties have a very different approach to dealing with dodgy candidates…

Labour Candidate Ranted About “Jew Propaganda”

Another day, another anti-Semitic Labour candidate. Irfan Javed is Labour’s council candidate in Woodfield in Stevenage on Thursday. He has ranted on Facebook about “Jew propaganda” and commented: “I am just suspicious. This is what Jewish dominated western media usually does.” He has also compared Zionism to Nazism:

Labour Ditch Mad Mandy as Worcester Candidate

Labour tell Guido they are dropping Mandy Richards as their candidate in Worcester. A spokesman says: “The NEC has not endorsed Mandy Richards as the Labour Party candidate for Worcester”.
