Jez Dances as Corbynistas Chant “Vamos Corbyn!”

Footage has emerged of feelgood Jeremy Corbyn cutting shapes in a London nightclub, pumping his fist in the air in a Chavez-style ‘people power’ salute, as a Latin American guitarist leads a chorus of “Vamos Corbyn! Vamos Corbyn!” to the tune of the Gypsy Kings’ Bambeleo.

The senstational video was filmed on Saturday night, at the Latinos for Corbyn fundraiser at El Vergel:

He also played the bongos:

And had a bloomin’ good time:

Viva la fiesta! Viva Corbynista!

Team Corbyn Blast BBC “Character Assassination”

Last night’s particularly punchy Panorama special asked if Corbyn believed Iraqis had the right to kill British troops:

Corbyn refuses to answer the question…

It wasn’t just tin-foil hat wearing Corbynista trolls crying establishment stitch up. His top team are furious:

Look forward to the Panorama specials on Yvette Cooper’s links to Brownite thugs and Liz Kendall’s Progress shame… or not…

Dave Blasts Corbyn’s “Friends” Hamas and Hezbollah

Corbyn caught the Speaker’s eye after Cameron’s statement, but ignored the RAF drone strike and instead asked a question welcoming our “new relationship” with the brutal terror-sponsoring regime in Iran. Dave couldn’t resist a dig at some of Jezza’s “friends“:

“Iran is a still a supporter of terrorist organisations like Hamas and Hezbollah, which I know he describes as friends but I see very much as enemies…”

If you listen carefully, at the end of Jezza’s question you can hear Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke sarcastically heckle: “he’s good“. Will their next exchange be across the despatch box?

Sadiq and Diane Set For Corbyn’s Cabinet

As Guido revealed in yesterday’s Sun on Sunday, super-confident Jeremy Corbyn has prematurely decided who he wants in his Shadow Cabinet. Sources close to the campaign say Corbyn asked his leadership election agent, fellow hard-left MP John McDonnell, to draw up a list of names a few weeks ago. There is a physical list in existence, one Labour source who has seen it claims Sadiq Khan and Diane Abbott’s names are down: “Jeremy said he would form a broad church and consider a wide range of views, but this list is far from that. Instead, it’s just all the usual suspects.” Jezza rewarding them with frontbench jobs in return for their nominations…

Hamas Endorse Corbyn

It’s the endorsement everyone wanted. Hamas’ deputy foreign minister Ghazi Hamad tells the Telegraph:

“I find that [Corbyn] has very good sympathy and support for the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian struggle and he is frankly against the occupation, against the racist policy of Israel… According to his statements, I feel that he could be very close to the Palestinians, the Arabs and to the Muslims. He supports all the right things in the world regarding freedom, justice, dignity, the right of people under occupation to get their national rights… If he really became the head of the Labour party, he can make a big change to the image of Britain because people here in Palestine feel that Britain has a historical responsibility, in giving Israel the golden chance of establishing their state on the account of the Palestinian people.”

He then called on a future Prime Minister Corbyn to delist Hamas as a terror organisation. Anything for a “friend”…

Cooper Finally Savages Corbynomics

It has taken until this late in the contest, but finally someone went for Corbyn. Hard.

The audience roared wildly… for Corbyn’s response…

Cooper’s Cross-Party Migrant Message to MPs: “Take a Selfie”

Yvette Cooper has responded to Andy Burnham weaponising the refugee crisis by writing to every single MP, telling them the situation “transcends party politics and the Labour Party leadership election”. See what she did there…

Yvette’s bold cross-party pitch?

“We are writing to you now to encourage you to… Take a selfie with a #refugeeswelcome banner and put it on Twitter and Facebook, encouraging others to do the same.”

Such leadership.

Cooper and Burnham might be trying to make a stand on migrants now, but they weren’t always so noble. The Telegraph points out the pair’s voting record on asylum issues:

Only Jezza’s voting record has been consistently migrant-friendly…

Burnham Weaponises Refugee Crisis

Andy Burnham just couldn’t resist using the refugee crisis to get one over on Yvette Cooper this morning. Asked about Cooper’s call for the country to take more refugees, Burnham somewhat tastelessly boasted: “I called the day before for Britain to take our fair share”.

Even the lefty Twitterati are clutching their pearls. Stay classy…

UPDATE: He’s doubling down:

Probably best to stop now.

Guardian Writer’s Vile Slur Against Falklands Hero

Earlier this week Falklands hero Simon Weston, whose suffered 46% burns and whose face was left unrecognisable after RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by the Argentinians, said that Jeremy Corbyn’s policy on the Falklands was tantamount to “surrender“. This is how regular Guardian writer and editor of the ‘Lenin’s Tomb’ blog, Richard Seymour, responded to the story:

Seymour tells his critics he only had a freelance contract with the Guardian for three years, but he wrote on average at least fortnightly for the paper’s website during 2014. What a charmer…

Anti-UKIP Burnham v Patriotic ‘Purple’ Andy

Internationalist lefty Andy Burnham has UKIP in his sights this morning, vowing to “fight nationalism wherever I find it“:

“Across Europe, we have seen the rise of nationalist parties… And established parties have begun to follow suit. Here in this country, the governing party spent an election playing to English nationalism… As Labour leader, I will fight nationalism – an ugly brand of politics that seeks to divide people one from another – wherever I find it. It is a dead-end towards division, separation and conflict… Labour has been too weak in standing up to nationalism.”

Yet, after Labour lost in May, patriotic ‘purple’ Andy Burnham claimed “every single place that I went to” was concerned about immigrants. “Standing up to nationalism” meant he invited local ‘kippers to a meeting to try and win them over, saying they are “not xenophobic or racist“. His speeches echoed Farage’s “divisive” rhetoric on the train, sympathetically recounting the concerns of one anti-foreigner voter:

“When you’re at work and you have a tea break, you go into the tea room and have a chat with people. When I’m at work I have my tea break on my own because I’m the only one who speaks English”

What was that about “an ugly brand of politics”?

Burnham “raided” UKIP’s manifesto for his leadership pitch. He copied UKIP’s lines and said that “MPs all live in posher areas, don’t see what they go through and hence don’t help them“. He lifted Farage’s “metropolitan elite” buzzword. “Labour has been too weak in standing up to nationalism…”

Corbyn: Quoting Things I Have Said is “Cynical” Journalism

Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn has had a good old whinge about nasty journalists having the gall to point out things he has said in the past. Asked by ITV about those bin Laden comments, covered by all papers, Jez fired back:

“They were quite cynically and deliberately mis-reported… the point I made was it was a culmination of awful events all across the region and I said if they were capable of getting to Osama bin Laden then put him on trial.”

Awwww.

Was he cynically misrepresented? Is that really the only point he was making? Here is the quote in full context:

“I can’t answer the question of why [Obama will not release evidence of bin Laden’s death]. We can only guess that there is something fishy here; that Bin Laden wasn’t there, therefore, there has to be a story. Or, the pictures are very gory, or they show something else, such as he was unarmed and was shot – as may well, on this, there was no attempt that I can see to arrest him, to put him on trial, to go through that process. This was an assassination attempt and is yet another tragedy upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy. The World Trade Center attack was a tragedy, the war in Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy.”

So, we have a) a nutty conspiracy theory about “something fishy” going on, b) Corbyn describing bin Laden’s assassination as a “tragedy“, and c) Corbyn equating bin Laden’s death with 9/11. Apparently directly quoting his own words is a smear…

ITV report Corbyn then moaned that “an awful lot of journalists were spending a lot of time trawling the archives for anything he has said”. Well, yes, the man does supposedly want to be Prime Minister…

Owen Jones Wouldn’t Serve Under Corbyn

Liz Kendall turned the tables on Owen Jones in his latest video, asking the baby faced Guardian columnist if he would serve under Jeremy Corbyn.

Liz “Would you take a job in Jeremy Corbyn’s office?”

Owen “No. No.”

Owen also confirmed to Liz Kendall Guido’s revelation that he was asked to stand to be a Labour MP in the last election. Guido understood that Tom Watson asked him to stand against Nick Clegg in Sheffield. Instead Owen led a throng of left-wingers to knock on doors in the constituency, ensuring that the Tory voters took fright and voted for Nick Clegg in droves to keep Labour out… 

In any event, Owen understandably wouldn’t want to take the pay-cut

Burnham: Corbyn Making Excuses For Putin

Jeremy “Can I finish?” Corbyn’s famous temper frayed at this afternoon’s Channel 4 hustings when Andy Burnham accused him of “making excuses for Putin“:

“No I’m not Andy that is ridiculous, that is ridiculous. Andy, Andy, that is ridiculous.”

Burnham has previously threatened to quit Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet if he pushes ahead with his policy on leaving Nato. You’ll never be Shadow Chancellor if you criticise the dear leader like that, Andy…

Corbynistas Plan to ‘Drink Blood of Thatcher’

Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters will be partying like it’s 1983 at the Speakeasy Bar in Epping tomorrow night. The Corbyn campaign is sponsoring an official ‘Cocktails for Corbyn‘ bash, offering drinks such as “Dianne Abbotts” [sic], described as “Champagne Socialist Martinis”, and “Kier Hardie” Old Fashioneds. Also on the menu are “Bloody Margarets“, a rather tasteless reference to the late Lady Thatcher. Only 11 people have RSVP’d so far, seems Essex isn’t a Corbynista heartland. Bloodthirsty Reds…

“Security” No. 10’s Corbyn Attack Line of Choice

Jeremy-Corbyn-11_3328948b

There is one word we will be hearing a lot from Downing Street if and when Corbyn becomes leader. David Cameron mentions “security” six times in an article attacking Jezza for the Times today:

[Economic stability] is what makes it possible to deliver the security we all yearn for. At the heart of our election manifesto was that simple goal: to give people securitySecurity is formed of many things… getting the training you need to secure a worthwhile career… The most important source of security is a well-paid job… It’s that combination of recovery and reform that will enable us to help those who often have the least security

Got the message?

If that wasn’t subtle enough, George Osborne used No. 10’s new buzzword a total of eight times in a very repetitive op-ed for the Sun over the weekend, including three times in the first line:

“This is a Government that puts security first – our national security and our economic security… that consensus, which is so important for our security and reliability as an ally, risks being shattered…The UK’s future security is threatened… the return of the unilateralists to British politics threatens our nation’s future security… For the new unilateralists of British politics are a threat to our future national security and to our economic security”

That’s 14 times in 48 hours…

“My concern is that we do everything we can to protect and enhance the security of the United Kingdom” was Cameron’s only previous comment on Corbyn, made two weeks ago. The Tories were masters of thematic campaigning in May, and their new mot du jour has the benefit of ringing true…

Corbyn Equates Bin Laden Death “Tragedy” With 9/11

Peak Corbyn on Iranian state television:

“We can only guess that there is something fishy here. Either Bin Laden wasn’t there, therefore there has to be a story. Or, the pictures … show something else… This was an assassination attempt and is yet another tragedy upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy.
