Lefties Duped By “Why Socialism Works” Guide on Amazon

Spare a thought for any socialists searching on Amazon for their summer reading. On the face of it, ‘Why Socialism Works‘ by Harrison Lievesley seems a sensible purchase for wannabe Jez fans. Most reviews are very positive, indeed the vast majority give five-star ratings. One calls it “a proper left wing economic primer”, another says “Absolutely gripping, I couldn’t put it down”.

Enough to convince budding lefties to order the £7.99 paperback. Cue disappointment when, upon taking delivery of ‘Why Socialism Works’, readers found every one of its 169 pages reads: “It doesn’t”.

Jane Collins was not impressed:

Truth hurts…

Labour MPs Condemn McDonnell’s Grenfell Remarks

Shadow housing minister John Healey and veteran Labour MP Margaret Hodge have condemned John McDonnell’s remarks on the Grenfell tragedy, which he described as “murder” caused by “political decisions. Hodge said on the Daily Politics: “that is language of the hard left which is not done in my name”Still, good to rile up the nutters online.

McDonnell: Grenfell Victims Were “Murdered”

Guido has got hold of the video of Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell telling a Glastonbury crowd that the Grenfell victims were “murdered“. In fact he says it twice. Worth watching for the awkward audience reaction when he repeatedly drops the M-word.

“Is democracy working? It didn’t work if you were a family living on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower. Those families, those individuals, 79 so far and there will be more, were murdered by political decisions taken over recent decades. The decision not to build homes and to view housing as only for financial speculation rather than meeting a basic human need murdered those families. The decision to close fire stations and to cut 10,000 fire fighters and then to freeze their pay for over a decade . They were political decisions.”

So does McDonnell think the many, many Labour councils who also approved unsafe cladding are attempted murderers?

Michael Eavis Says Corbyn Told Him He’ll Get Rid of Trident

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has said Jeremy Corbyn told him he will get rid of Trident “as soon as I can“. Quotes via Somerset Live:

When asked about the Labour leader’s appearance, Michael Eavis said: “Wasn’t he fantastic?”

“I said to when are you going to be prime minister? He said: ‘In six months’.”

Eavis said he asked Corbyn: “When are you going to get rid of Trident?”

“He said: ‘as soon as I can’.”

And Jezza’s Glasto appearance was going so well. Penny for Nia Griffith’s thoughts…

New Labour MP Mocked Thatcher’s Death and Called Tories “Scum”

The election result has left Labour’s compliance unit with quite a few new MPs who they weren’t expecting to make it to the Commons. Guido is only too happy to welcome them to Westminster, starting with new Brighton Kemptown MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle. The carrot top Corbynista is a Momentum fan, hardcore socialist and self-proclaimed “Trot” who once tweeted a link to the “IsThatcherDeadYet.co.uk” website, telling his followers he was “Keeping track of when Maggie Thatcher finally cops it”. He also liked “Yes, Margaret Thatcher is dead” on Facebook. What a charmer.

Other words of wisdom from Russell-Moyle include calling Cameron and Osborne “scum” and declaring “I’d rather be a Trot than a Tory any day”. What lucky constituents he has…

Dimbleby Ejects Corbynista #BBCQT Heckler

This shouty crackers Corbynista in the flowery shirt got to ask his question defending Jez and attacking Blairites – but he wouldn’t shut up for the rest of the programme. Dimbers sorted him…

Crazy Corbynistas Claim Corbyn is Really the Prime Minister

As a sign of the ever-widening Corbynista detachment from reality, Jezza’s activist/journalist supporters are spreading the meme that he is in fact the Prime Minister. Guardian writer Abi Wilkinson says:

Abi’s mate Sam Kriss, the Vice journalist slash nutty far-left conspiracy theorist, reckons:

Liam Young, the New Statesman and Independent blogger and original Jez fanboy-cum-student-activist-journalist, thinks Corbyn is “certainly in power”:

Perhaps most hilariously of all, Red Pepper, the hard-left Corbyn supporting magazine, says Jez is the “People’s Prime Minister”:

Guys, Corbyn lost. By a distance. He came 64 seats short of winning. You know how Theresa May has just held a government reshuffle with appointments approved by the Queen? It’s because she is the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister who forms a government after an election is by definition the “People’s Prime Minister”. That is how it works. More people voted for the Conservative Party than the Labour Party. Jezza’s fanboys and fangirls are living in an alternate reality…

Arrests as Masked ‘Day of Rage’ Protesters Scuffle With Police

Scuffles have taken place between protesters and police outside parliament as the Corbynista ‘Day of Rage’ protests turn unsavoury. Masked demonstrators staged a sit in on the road at Parliament Square, and at least one man who was involved in a physical altercation with a policeman was arrested. The officer was knocked to the ground.

Other protesters hurled abuse at bystanders and sang Corbyn chants and called Theresa May a “terrorist“.

There are only a few hundred protesters at most so far. Sad. If McDonnell and Corbyn really cared about policemen on the front line they’d call off their nutty cheerleaders…

‘Day of Rage’ Leader Refuses To Disavow Violence

The leader of the group behind today’s ‘Day of Rage’ has refused three times to disassociate the protest from violence. Julia Hartley-Brewer interviewed Karen Doyle from the Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary for Talk Radio; Doyle refused point blank three times to distance the rally from violence to people or property. John McDonnell’s chums clearly didn’t get his last-minute message to keep things peaceful…

McDonnell Talks Up Day of Rage: “People Have Right to Be Angry”

John McDonnell has told the Day of Rage protesters they have a “right to be angry” and insisted he was right to say “I don’t think this government is a legitimate government”. As Nick Robinson says in the interview above, McDonnell is trying to have it both ways: telling Radio 4 he opposes violence and yet riling up the protesters in the Morning Star. Remember, this is the same John McDonnell who described the student rioters “kicking the sh*t out of Millbank” as “the best of our movement“.

We know what he really thinks…

New Labour MP Compared Amber Rudd to Hitler

New Labour MP Ruth George has tried to distance herself from her own Twitter account after the BBC dug up old posts comparing Amber Rudd to Hitler. The new High Peak MP claims the tweets were sent without her knowledge; her ‘spokesman’ says they were sent by “a very passionate campaign volunteer“. Such charming views expressed include calling Amber Rudd “Mein Fuhrer”. Contrary to the denials, the account profile says tweets were sent by George herself. Calibre of new Labour MPs depressingly uninspiring so far…

Corbyn Praised at London Hezbollah Rally

The annual Al Quds day rally took place in central London yesterday afternoon. The Khomeinist march – in support of the destruction of the State of Israel – openly supports Hezbollah, whose military wing is a proscribed organisation in the UK. Jeremy Corbyn was photographed in front of a Hezbollah flag when he spoke at the march in 2012. This year he sensibly chose not to attend…

As the march snaked to the US Embassy in Grovsenor Square, anti-Israel chants rang out under dozens of yellow AK-47 emblazoned Hezbollah flags. Addressing the rally, Mick Napier from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign accused “Zionists” of trying to depose Corbyn:

“This is a dramatic moment… Jeremy Corbyn has stood by the Palestinian people for 30 years, the Zionists hate him, they tried to get him prevented from becoming leader, they’re trying to get him removed.”

Meanwhile a speaker from Stop the War suggested Labour Friends of Israel are also trying to undermine Jez. “Zionists” were blamed for the Grenfell tower fire by a speaker at the rally, underlining the level of blatant lunacy displayed at the event. This is a terror-linked rally that lavished praise on Jeremy Corbyn and which he formerly backed…

Corbynista of the Week

A wide-eyed Corbynista calls for the Prime Minister, “a jumped up vicar’s daughter”, to be beheaded. The well has been poisoned since June 8…

Corbynistas Share Fake Mail Front Page

This photoshopped Daily Mail front page is so obviously a fake no self-respecting journalist could possibly fall for it, right? Wrong…

Wrong typeface, a photo the Mail have used on a splash before, a tone they would never use, and a message they would be very unlikely to endorse.

You’d expect Galloway to be dense enough to fall for it, Owen really should know better…

Clive Lewis: Burn Neoliberalism

Translation: “Please, Corbynistas of Twitter, forgive me for betraying Jez.” What a piece of work.

Corbynista Ultras Involved in Storming of Kensington Council

Corbynista ultra and veteran left-wing activist Tina Buckley is on the ground in Kensington tonight riling up protesters. Buckley was spotted outside Kensington Town Hall leading chants as the building was stormed by protesters.

Readers will remember her as the mad woman filmed wearing the same Jeremy Corbyn backpack just three weeks ago outside Downing Street, when she called Theresa May a “terrorist“. In the past Buckley has been pictured with Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Clive Lewis. Meanwhile, the Sun reports Momentum are involved in the Kensington trouble tonight:

Raises the question: how many of these protesters are genuine locals, and how many are political opportunists…

UPDATE: Socialist Worker banners have now been spotted at the protest. One reads: “Socialist Worker. Tories have blood on their Hands. Justice for Grenfell.

Corbynistas Peddle Grenfell D-Notice Fake News

Prominent Corbynistas have been peddling false claims this afternoon that the government has issued a D-Notice preventing the reporting of the death toll from Grenfell. The lie was reported by the prominent Corbynista site Skwawkbox, which claimed “multiple sources told the Skwawkbox that the government has placed a ‘D-notice’ on the real number of deaths in the blaze”. The ‘story’ was also promoted on Twitter by journalists from two other viral Corbynista sites, Evolve Politics and Novara Media.

A spokesman for the Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee, the body which issues D-Notices, told Guido this afternoon:

“The Secretary of the Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee has not issued any D-Notice in relation to Grenfell.”

These Corbynistas, who work closely with Jeremy Corbyn’s office, are lying to their readers. They are deliberately peddling knowingly false conspiracies to suggest some government plot about Grenfell, and getting thousands of hits off the back of it. Astonishingly low stuff.

UPDATE: Evolve Politics strenuously deny they promoted the story “anywhere on its pages”. We do not contest that.

Labour Calls For Properties Owned By Rich to Be “Requisitioned”

The latest policy from populist Jez is for the state to seize control of Kensington properties left empty by rich owners and use them to house the Grenfell victims. Corbyn says:

“Properties must be found, requisitioned if necessary, in order to make sure those residents get re-housed locally. It is hardly acceptable that in London you have luxury buildings and luxury flats kept empty while the homeless and poor look for somewhere to live.”

This would almost certainly be illegal and it is unnecessary – student accommodation management companies have already offered up their vacated properties. Almost as if this is left-wing populist virtue signalling. A reminder that cuddly Corbyn is a heavy-handed, freedom-hating authoritarian…

McDonnell to Celebrate Election at Castro Cuba Solidarity Party

John McDonnell and Ian Lavery are to celebrate Labour’s better-than-expected election defeat at a Cuba Solidarity Campaign party next week. McDonnell and Lavery will enjoy Cuban acid house and salsa music, as well as a tribute to Fidel Castro, before giving speeches in praise of the communist Cuban regime. For voters, a look at what you could have won. Of course Fidel never gave himself the opportunity to lose an election…

Clive Lewis: Chris Leslie is a “Sad, Lonely, Bitter Man”

Clive Lewis has some front. First he quit Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, then he spent months telling Labour MPs how he should replace Jez, then he formed a nascent leadership team with humble-pie-eating turncoat lefty journalists Owen Jones, Paul Mason, Abi Wilkinson and Ellie Mae O’Hagan.[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
