Public Think Politics Would Be ‘More Chaotic’ Under Labour

Sky Data have found that the public think by a large margin that a Labour government would make politics more chaotic, not more stable. Just one third of voters (33%) thought electing Labour would stabilise politics, compared to 45% who said it would do precisely the exact opposite. The public thinks things are not so bad that they couldn’t get worse.

Despite the events of the last three weeks, Theresa May leads Jeremy Corbyn by 20 points (42%-22%) in terms of who the public thinks would be more competent to lead the country through Brexit. A massive 36% responded with ‘don’t know’…

Welsh Assembly Member Suspended Over Anti-Semitism

Guido understands that Corbynista Member of the Welsh Assembly Jenny Rathbone has been suspended by the Labour group for comments regarded as potentially antisemitic. This comes after a recording surfaced where Rathbone suggested Israel ‘drives people to be hostile to British Jews’ and suggested Jewish people’s security fears could be ‘in their own heads.’

The matter has been referred to the national party…

Revealed: Labour’s Manifesto Would Have Cost £1 Trillion

A few eyebrows were being raised yesterday as Theresa May claimed again at PMQs that Labour had admitted that their manifesto would have cost £1 trillion to implement. The author of the book which is the source of May’s claim, Philip Cowley, says May’s interpretation is not quite right. We’ve crunched the numbers with some top wonks…

Guido’s bean-counting co-conspirators confirmed that Labour’s 2017 manifesto would indeed have cost £1 trillion over a decade to implement. Forget £350 million a week – that’s £350 million every thirty hours…

Over ten years, the cost would be:

  • £486 billion of extra spending
    • Labour’s own costings document put the cost of their spending plans at an extra £48.6 billion a year
  • £206.5 billion of additional day-to-day spending not covered by Labour’s costings document, including:
    • £150 billion to build a million homes which previous Labour policy papers estimated would require £15 billion extra borrowing a year
    • £27 billion extra on early years childcare which was undercosted in their manifesto
    • £23 billion on an unfunded mass home insulation progamme
  • £304.5 billion of one-off capital spending, including

All of that adds up to £997 billion over ten years – almost bang on the trillion pound mark. This would amount to a staggering £35,200 of extra borrowing for every household in the UK. More new debt for every household than an average household’s disposable income for a year…

Labour Party Whistle-Blower Reveals Party’s ‘Precariat’ Employees

A brave Labour Party staffer has blown the whistle on the hypocritical employment practices within the Labour Party, revealing how some Labour Party staff are forced to turn to payday lenders and even food banks because of their insecure employment. Labour has been campaigning on the in-work poverty of theprecariat

Writing anonymously for LabourList, the whistle-blower lifted the lid on how some Labour Party staffers are “employed as on as little as 12 hours a week and don’t know how many hours they will work next week.” Others have “contracts lasting as little as two months.” For a party which is flush with cash and endlessly bangs on about the ‘gig economy’ working conditions, this hypocrisy is quite something. Do as we say not as we do…

Corbyn ‘Death Trap’ Cab’s MOT Mystery

After Guido reported that Labour’s ‘Corbyn Cab’ was campaigning earlier this year without an MOT, the car quickly passed a new one. Strangely, just a month later the car had a highly unusual second MOT, eleven months before it was required to. The Corbyn Cab spectacularly failed this second MOT, with fourteen major defects. According to Guido’s man in the blue-overalls it was a ‘Death Trap’. How did the Corbyn Cab pass its MOT test right after Guido’s story when it had fourteen major defects which were identified only a month later?


Taxi for Corbyn…

Corbyn’s Chief Of Staff Spoke of Cutting PM’s Throat

Jeremy Corbyn’s Chief of Staff, Karie Murphy, posted “are u considering your defence mitigation if u cut his throat?” as a comment on a photograph of David Cameron speaking with journalist Steve Zacharanda a reception at Downing Street in 2013.

The violent comment was made just months after Lee Rigby was murdered in a similar way. How does Corbyn’s Chief of Staff think this is in any way acceptable?

McDonnell: Labour Will Lead Anti-Semitism

 

John McDonnell went on the Today Programme this morning to try to cool down the Labour Party anti-Semitism row. Instead he has joined a line of Shadow Cabinet members getting in an embarrassing muddle over the issue.

“Let’s talk about how we tackle that now as a community as a whole and the Labour Party will play its full role in leading that anti-Semitism.”

Last month John McDonnell told the Today Programme:

Let me put this message out to anyone. We are a party that is anti-racist and anti-Semitic.

One Freudian slip is unfortunate, two is more like a confession. Or a taunt.

Latest Cadwalladr Conspiracy: Bots Behind Labour Anti-Semitism

Observer rent-a-conspiracy writer Carole Cadwalladr has stuck her foot in it yet again by incredibly suggesting that Anti-Semistism in the Labour Party is the product of paid Tory trolls and her favourite bogeymen Cambridge Analytica.

She approvingly quote tweeted a conspiracy thread suggesting that Brandon Lewis has hired “a team of Tory trolls” and that recently suspended Labour members like Damien Enticott were just ‘hacked’.

This thread was written by a Labour supporter who is backing Pete Willsman for Labour NEC, a figure even too toxic for the likes of Owen Jones and Matt Zarb-Cousin.

Another brilliant piece of codswallop from Carole.

UPDATE: Carole has deleted her tweet and posted this apology…

“Man. What times. I’ve deleted this tweet asking if there was disinfo afoot…because there’s been a pile-on saying the tweet about disinfo is itself disinfo. Which it may be? I honestly don’t know. Yikes. Sorry. I’m keeping out of this one…”

Labour Suspends Yet Another Councillor Over Anti-Semitism

Labour today suspended councillor Damien Enticott over social media posts claiming Jewish people “drink blood and suck baby’s dick”, that Jewish people are “murdering bastards” who “should be gassed”, and that “Hitler would have a solution to the Israel problem”. Enticott’s defence is that he was hacked. Repeatedly. Over the course of several years. And he didn’t notice until now.

Enticott’s Facebook profile is littered with revolting posts. None of his Labour colleagues he was friends with spoke out. Days since last Labour anti-Semitic incident? Zero.

Labour vs Millwall

The Lewisham East by-election is so dominated by factional Labour politicking that sources in the constituency fear vital local issues are being overlooked. None more so than the fate of Millwall FC’s ground, The Den, which is under threat from a controversial regeneration project backed by a string of Labour town hall chiefs. The club is living under threat of a Compulsory Purchase Order – which means Labour-controlled Lewisham Council (Millwall’s landlord) could seize and sell land around the stadium. Club bosses warned this could push the team out of London, an enormous loss to the community and the capital’s football heritage… 

During the parliamentary selection process the club’s chairman wrote to each of the Labour candidates asking them to outline their position on the issue, pledging to publish their response. Guido understands no responses were received…

Janet Daby, the moderate candidate who ultimately secured the selection, was on the council cabinet which backed many of the regeneration proposals. There is no record of her dissenting against them (unlike Lewisham’s new Labour mayor, and fellow moderate, Damien Egan). Labour representation now appears split on the issue. Meanwhile, the LibDems, who previously came third in strongly remain borough, are on the front foot. Voting Labour in June could prove an own goal for football fans in Lewisham…

Now Vaz Reports Bridgen to Standards Commissioner (Again)

Keith Vaz has reported Tory MP Andrew Bridgen to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards – again. Bridgen first complained to the Commissioner about Vaz’s conduct in September 2016 after the Labour grandee was the subject of an infamous newspaper expose. The Commissioner opened an inquiry which was suspended for months due to ‘health reasons’. Almost two years after the coke and rent boys shenanigans, Vaz is in the House the Commissioner’s probe is back on

At the time Vaz retaliated, complaining about Bridgen to the same watchdog, arguing that any investigation into his conduct was outside the Commissioner’s scope. The Commissioner rejected Vaz’s complaint…

Now Vaz has complained yet again, this time on the grounds that Bridgen has commented on Vaz’s case to the media. Bridgen tells Guido:

“Mr Vaz is clearly somewhat rattled.”

How long will it take the Commissioner to dismiss this one…

Three Billboards Protest Against Labour Anti-Semitism

A ‘three billboards’ style protest is underway against Labour anti-semitism. The convoy of billboards just passed Labour’s Southside HQ and can be seen around London today. The three boards read:

“Holocaust deniers harboured by Labour, failure to act on antisemitism, institutional antisemitism in Corbyn’s Labour.”

The protest is timed to coincide with Sajid Javid’s parliamentary debate on anti-Semitism later today. The idea for the protest comes from Oscar-winning film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MissouriA protest you won’t catch Jezza on…

Jewdas Lose £45,000 After eBay Restarts Anti-Capitalist Beetroot Auction

The auction price of the Jewdas anti-capitalist beetroot has plummeted after Ebay ruled the sale infringed its terms and conditions. The price had topped £50,000 when the auction site removed the listing. It was re-listed and now stands at a meagre £5,000. Capitalism gets its own back on Jewdas…

Shami: You Can’t Just Punish Assad For Using Chemical Weapons

Shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarti has made clear Labour would not act against the Assad regime even if OPCW inspectors found evidence of chemical weapons use in Douma. Appearing on the Today programme, Shami was asked what a Labour government would do if UN inspectors confirmed the position of Western governments. She refused to address the question before saying:

“You can’t use force under international law just to punish Syria for bad behaviour.”

John Woodcock weighed in:

Labour backbenchers will be worth watching this afternoon…

Corbyn: “You’d Better Make F*cking Sure I Don’t Get Elected”

Jon Lansman reveals what Jeremy Corbyn said when he first learned he was on the ballot for the Labour leadership:

“You’d better make f*cking sure I don’t get elected”

Unusually sound for Jezza…

Chris Williamson Erased from Corbyn’s Derby Visit

Jeremy Corbyn was in Derby today to launch Labour’s under-25’s free bus travel policy. The launch was held at Littleover Community School, which is in top Corbynista Chris Williamson’s constituency. For Williamson this is like a visit from the messiah, he should have been all over it like a rash…

So why is he curiously absent from Labour’s coverage of the event? Shadow Transport Secretary Andy McDonald is in shot in the pictures and mentioned in tweets posted by East Midlands Labour – but there’s no sign of Chris anywhere on any of Labour’s social media channels. He’s not even in Jezza’s extensive Instagram story. Nor is he in the Labour press release which advertised the event, which does mention McDonald. He hasn’t even promoted the event on his usually very active Twitter account. Labour sources confirmed Williamson was indeed at the launch, but he’s not in any of the official pictures…

An almost Stalinist erasure of a non-desirable…

Morning Star Suggests Douma Attack Was Set-Up

The sickos who write Corbyn’s favourite paper have plumbed new depths by suggesting the Douma chemical attack was a set-up. The paper’s editorial calls Assad the “legitimate” ruler of Syria and suggests the children in the harrowing images from the scene were not really gassed. Remember they previously backed the slaughter in Aleppo.

“Today, the pretext for escalating Britain’s military involvement in Syria is that the Assad regime — the internationally recognised, legitimate and elected government in Damascus — is guilty of a poison gas attack on the citizens of Douma. Film of the aftermath, broadcast across the world in recent days, shows a troupe of very camera-conscious young men washing down the victims, all of whom are children, most of them looking more bewildered than wounded or incapacitated, and without a distressed parent or relative in sight.”

This is the paper Corbyn chooses to have delivered to his office. Does he agree?

Piers Corbyn Tweets Infowars Video and Claims Syria Gas Attack Was “Fake”

Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers has tweeted an Alex Jones Show Infowars video featuring Paul Joseph Watson which suggests the chemical attack on Douma was not carried out by the Assad regime. He tagged his brother Jeremy in the tweet. Piers also tweeted:

“HAHA the #Syria #ChemicalWeaponsAttack was #FAKE.”

PJW should really get Piers on his show…

Corbyn Tells Maureen Lipman to “Reflect” On Her Words

Yesterday Maureen Lipman said Jeremy Corbyn had “made her a Tory” over his response to Labour’s anti-semitism scandal. Today Corbyn told her to “reflect” on that statement. Speaking to LBC’s Political Editor Theo Ushwerood, the Labour leader said:

“I think she’s a great actress, a great comic and I hope she reflects on what she said.”

Jezza’s not a bad comic either…

Corbyn’s Personal Poll Ratings Plummet in Last Three Months

Jeremy Corbyn’s personal poll ratings have plummeted in the first quarter of 2018. Asked ‘do you think Corbyn is doing well or badly as Labour leader’, public approval has tanked from +8 in December to -25 this week, according to YouGov.[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
