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. May is on the opposite trajectory, improving from -14 to the slightly less terrible -6 in the same period.

On who would make the best Prime Minister, Corbyn is down -5 (26%) from where he was at Christmas. Jezza is getting back to where he was pre-election…

Khan Knife Crime Car Crash: Mayor Admits He Hasn’t Met Bereaved Families

Sadiq Khan has finally broken his silence on London’s knife crime crisis, telling LBC’s Theo Usherwood he hasn’t met any bereaved families. Khan did a broadcast interview today after days of silence as London’s 2018 murder toll reached 50 this week: there have been seven suspected murders since last Friday. As Guido reported earlier, Khan’s office had previously claimed he couldn’t speak out because of purdah rules. Sources said the mayor had been working from home this week. Bad look…

City Hall: Khan At Work But Can’t Comment on Knife Crime

As London knife crime tops the media agenda City Hall watchers are wondering: where is Sadiq Khan? The mayor is under intense and increasing media pressure over London’s knife crime crisis as the total number of suspected murders in 2018 rose this week to 50. Rumours were swirling last night that Sadiq was uncontactable; some City Hall staff presumed he was on holiday as he had not been seen in the office. City Hall told Guido this morning:

“He’s been in London all week and is in City Hall today.”

If he’s at work, why hasn’t he spoken out? His office told journalists last night that the mayor could not comment on the knife crime crisis because of the ‘purdah‘ period ahead of the upcoming council elections on May 4th. That’s curious, because deputy mayor Sophie Linden – bound by the same rules – has been all over broadcast, sitting down on the GMB sofa yesterday morning. Khan himself has previously criticised the government for hiding behind the purdah rules. When will Sadiq do something?

Momentum Officer Resigns: ‘I Felt Unsafe as a Jewish Member’

A Momentum officer has resigned in protest at Labour’s anti-semitism scandal saying he felt “sometimes unsafe and most certainly untrusted” as a Jewish member of one of its London Steering Groups. Joshua Garfield posted about his resignation from Newham Momentum’s governing body on social media, writing:

“This past week, the Labour Party has been mired in a series of accusations of antisemitism, both individual and institutionalised; I can say from first hand experience that these accusations are not without foundation. As a Jewish member, I have witnessed more antisemitism in the past week than I ever have in my 8 years of Labour Party membership.

“I have seen discussions on social media, both publicly and privately, between members of Newham Momentum and elected representatives of its Steering Group, which leave me unable to serve on that body in good conscience. In the past week, I have felt sometimes unsafe, and most certainly untrusted as a Jewish member of the Steering Group, hence I’ve decided to step down. While I believe political education and antisemitism training may help members of the group, in all honesty I don’t believe it would be sufficient to combat some of the deep-seated prejudices I saw being aired confidently, and which went unchallenged. I cannot work alongside individuals who seek to silence the legitimate concerns of Jewish Labour members, or who remain silent in the face of blatant racism.”

A Momentum Spokesperson said:

“As made clear in our recent statement, Momentum is committed to stamping out antisemitism across the Labour movement. Any complaints we receive will be investigated fully in line with our code of ethics, and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.”

A local officer with more backbone than Labour moderates…

Shawcroft Resigns After Defending Anti-Semitic Council Candidate

A huge development breaking in the Labour anti-Semitism scandal tonight: Momentum’s Christine Shawcroft has resigned as head of the party’s disputes panel (after just weeks in post) over her defence of an activist who posted a Holocaust denial article on social media. As the Daily Mail reports, top Corbynista Shawcroft sent an email on Sunday in support of Labour council candidate Alan Bull, who posted this on Facebook:

Shawcroft said in a statement:

“I sent this email before being aware of the full information about this case and I had not been shown the image of his abhorrent Facebook post. Had I seen this image, I would not have requested that the decision to suspend him be re-considered. I am deeply sorry for having done so.

”This week we have seen a clear expression of the pain and hurt that has been caused to Jewish members of our party and the wider Jewish community by anti-Semitic abuse and language, and by the reality of antisemitism being denied and downplayed by others.

“In light of this, I have decided to stand down as Chair of the Disputes Panel to ensure my wrong and misguided questions on this case do not cause doubt or anxiety about our processes. We must eliminate antisemitism from our Party and wider society. To do this we must make sure our process are as robust as possible and have the faith and confidence of our members.”

Shawcroft ousted Ann Black as disputes panel chair in January. She is still on the NEC. Shawcroft is a key ally of Jezza, this revelation will heap even more pressure on Corbyn…

Guy News Special: “Ooohhh, Jeremy’s Racist” Chants at Jewish Groups’ Corbyn Protest

A Guy News special report from last night’s rally against Jeremy Corbyn in Parliament Square. Thousands of protesters gathered to demonstrate, with verbal clashes between Jewish groups, Labour moderates and a small but vociferous counter-protest convened by Corbynistas. An unprecedented protest of Jewish groups against a leader of a mainstream political party…

Shadow Cabinet Minister: ‘Corbyn is Steeped in Anti-Semitism, We Are an Anti-Semitic Party’

Shadow Leader of the House Valerie Vaz was wheeled out to defend Corbyn amid Labour’s anti-Semitism crisis on Radio 4’s Westminster Hour last night. Hapless Vaz didn’t seem to know the meaning of the word anti-Semitism, as she repeatedly gaffed:

“[Jeremy Corbyn]’s been steeped in anti-Semitism… we must make sure we continue to show people we are an anti-Semitic party”

Helpful…

Board of Deputies: Corbyn ‘Swims in a Sewer of Anti-Semitism’

As Corbyn maintains his silence this morning, President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews Jonathan Arkush ramped up the condemnation on GMB:

“[Jeremy Corbyn]’s fostered a culture in which people feel free to come out with rank anti-Semitism… the political sea, or perhaps I should call it a sewer, in which he swims, is totally polluted by anti-Semitism.”

Labour MP Louise Ellman, former chair of Jewish Labour Movement, says the party is in crisis:

“Jeremy Corbyn has failed to take the correct action… it’s taken us to get to this crisis situation where you can hear the voices of the Jewish community in absolute fury and great distress… Jeremy has failed to act… we’re in a very bad place.”

Her colleague John Mann says he doesn’t know if Corbyn is an anti-Semite:

What are they going to do if he misses PLP tonight?

Watson Wrongly Claims Corbyn Apologised for Anti-Semitic Mural Comments

Tom Watson was wrong to claim Jeremy Corbyn has apologised for his anti-Semitic mural comments. Confronted with the image on Marr this morning, an uncomfortable Watson claimed Jezza has apologised for defending the mural in a Facebook post:

“That is why Jeremy has expressed deep regret and apologised for that and actually said it was right the mural was taken down.”

Actually Corbyn refused to apologise for his comment, saying he only regreted not “looking more closely” at the mural – that statement caused outrage in the PLP this weekend precisely because it stopped short of an apology. Watson clearly wishes Corbyn would just say sorry…

Chuka’s Champagne Donor Toasts Brexit

A Remain-backing wine and champagne wholesaler that gave a £45,000 donation to Chuka Umunna is boasting about how its global business has been boosted by Brexit. Chuka flaunted his champagne socialist credentials by accepting the huge wedge from Farr Vintners this month. The company’s latest accounts boast:

“The fall in the value of Sterling against the US $ has resulted in a substantial increase in demand from both the Far East and the United States, which we believe will continue into the current year. Our sales to the Far East which are handled by our Hong Kong office continue to be strong.”

Cheers!

LabourLists to the Left

LabourList, the hitherto dull and worthy rival to ConservativeHome that was launched by Peter Mandelson, was for years non-factional and tried to balance the views of the Labour family. It appears to be responding to market forces and moving to the left…
