Corbyn: Foreign Policy a “Cause” of Manchester Attack

Jeremy Corbyn will use a speech on Friday to argue that British foreign policy was one of the “causes” of the Manchester attack. Jez is in his element – he’s going to give the same speech he has delivered on demos and in campaign meetings dozens of times before:

“The responsibility of government is to ensure… that our foreign policy reduces rather than increases the threat to this country… Many experts, including professionals in our intelligence and security services, have pointed to the connections between wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home. 

That assessment in no way reduces the guilt of those who attack our children. Those terrorists will forever be reviled and held to account for their actions. But an informed understanding of the causes of terrorism is an essential part of an effective response that will protect the security of our people that fights rather than fuels terrorism.

We must be brave enough to admit the ‘war on terror’ is simply not working. We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism.”

The speech is a toned down version of the infamous Seumas Milne articles which blamed the West for 9/11 and the Woolwich attack. It uses the classic “but” technique preferred by Stop the War types: condemn the terrorists, say they are responsible, then add a “but” and talk about the West. He just couldn’t help himself. Campaigning well and truly back underway…

Canary’s “Batsh*t” Conspiracy Theory About Sun’s Front Page

Here’s the pro-Corbyn Canary claiming that “This was what The Sun chose to put on its front page in the aftermath” of the Manchester Arena attack. As Dominic Ponsford, the editor of the Press Gazette, put it, this is “Batsh*t reporting”.

Anyone who had the slightest understanding would realise that this was put out before the tragic news from Manchester broke. The actual front page splash in The Sun’s second edition was

At best the Canary is batsh*t crazy or more likely deliberately misleading readers out of left-wing malice towards The Sun. One reader is the Labour MP Barry Sheerman:

In reality News UK gave £100,000 to a fund for Manchester victims and Sun readers have so far donated £60,000 to the fund. Barry Sheerman is an idiot.

Corbynista Site Skwawkbox Blames May for Attack

Skwawkbox is one of the preferred online news outlets of Jeremy Corbyn’s office. It has close, regular contact with Corbyn’s team – Barry Gardiner even gave them an interview two weeks ago. Today Skwawkbox blames Theresa May for the Manchester attack, claiming she has “called in troops” to “hide her weakness and blame“. The site says May has announced she is suspending campaigning until Sunday – this is fake news, she has not said that – and that this “was never anything more than cover” that “allowed her to monopolise soundbites of Cobra meetings and threat levels to shore up her crumbling image”. Skwawkbox describes the “decision to call in the army” as a “blatant” attempt “to cover her own culpability”, directly blaming May for the attack: “it is her actions, inaction and cuts that endanger us”. Remember, Skwawkbox is closely read, briefed and aided by Corbyn’s office.

Meanwhile, the son of Jeremy Corbyn’s communist election chief Andrew Murray has said the attack came at an “unbelievably ideal time for those in power”. Jack Murray wrote that the bombing was being used as a “campaign tool” for the Tories. It’s what the Corbynistas are really thinking…

Shami Warns Corbynista Conspiracy Theorists

Twitter and Facebook are full of hundreds of crackers Corbynistas claiming the JTAC decision to raise the threat level is part of some conspiracy to hurt Jez’s election chances. Here is Sam Kriss, a prominent pro-Corbyn journalist for Vice:

As anyone other than the tin foil hatters knows, the decision was made by JTAC not CCHQ. Shami Chakrabarti was forced to shut the nutters down on Newsnight…

Len Tries to Stitch Up Liverpool Walton For His Bag-Carrier

A Labour HQ source says Len McCuskey’s bag-carrier Dan Carden is trying to secure the selection in Steve Rotheram’s soon to be vacated seat of Liverpool Walton. Unite are trying to use their sway on Labour’s NEC to have Carden imposed as the candidate – remember all Labour selections are dictated centrally by the NEC. Other Labour candidates battling Carden for the seat include Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson and Angela Eagle’s former aide Dan Hughes, who somewhat bizarrely also worked on Corbyn’s leadership campaign. Carden is a true believer, on the loony wing of the loony left…

Tory Students Targeted in Campus Free Speech Clampdown

Lincoln University students’ union has taken away control of its Conservative Society’s social media pages in the latest challenge to campus free speech. Tory students were accused of bringing their university into disrepute for tweeting about its woeful record on free expression. The heavy-handed student union responded and now the Tory group’s Facebook page has disappeared and the group has announced a two month Twitter hiatus. Lincoln MP Karl McCartney said:

“This intolerant, illiberal and totalitarian response is akin to something out of the Soviet Union or North Korea rather than a place for learning and debate. The loony-left has certainly taken over it seems at the University of Lincoln Students’ Union and this is another chapter in their knee-jerk desire to stifle debate which revealed itself as they began ‘no platforming’ people they don’t like including those who are democratically elected… the Students’ Union ‘snowflakes’ are so self-obsessed they forget Lincoln is the home to one of the original Magna Cartas, the foundation stone of freedom the world over.”

Guido couldn’t have put it better…

London Labour is Corbynista Epicentre

Corbyn’s spinners are working overtime to stress their Shadow Cabinet’s northern roots. The truth of course is London Labour is the epicentre of the loony left – the Leader, Shadow Foreign Secretary, Shadow Brexit Secretary and Shadow Home Secretary occupy four neighbouring constituencies in North London. Add McDonnell and all of Jez’s top team is based within dinner party distance…

More Than A Freudian Slip

freudianslip

And so we’re back, but from where? Well Theresa May chose to spend the Summer recess hiking with her husband Philip in the Swiss Alps: an interesting choice for a holiday jaunt and a million miles away from her predecessor’s Cornish jollies. Such Alpine treks are rare amongst today’s political and intellectual elite, but were a mainstay of the nineteenth century intelligentsia, favoured by all from Shelley and Byron, to Freud, and of course Freiderich Nietzche.

It was to their snow capped peaks that the philosopher turned following a particularly hurtful separation from a once close companion to walk and ponder, returning in 1882 with the revolutionary proclamation that “God is Dead”. For her efforts pondering a rather more significant separation the PM has brought back the similarly pithy declaration that “Brexit means Brexit”. We can only hope that the similarities end there as a few years later Freiderich wound up in a loony bin with neurosyphilitic brain damage after going a bit heavy on the prostitutes. Such a fate is of course quite unlikely to befall modern politicians… Continue reading

Paul Mason’s “Corbyn’s Not Rubbish” Rant Against “Torture & Rendition Ultra-Blairites”

Paul Mason laid out his loony left vision for the Labour party in a series of bizarre rants targeting Blairites:

“For the Blairites, for the twenty or thirty ultra Blairites, you know, the torture, rendition and Iraq war brigade, they might feel happier in a centrist party.”

He also manages to throw the Greek Syriza party in for good measure. How’s that going for them?

NUS Chief Executive Paid Five Times Average Graduate

simon blake nus

The increasingly unpopular NUS faces its sixth disaffiliation vote this month, with the University of Cambridge holding a referendum as part of the national NUSceptic campaign to leave the loony-left union. With each member union paying sums as high as £50,000 into the NUS every year, the organisation’s focus on far-left policies rather than issues that matter to students could leave it with a massive financial black holeSo how are they trying to get back in touch…

In the 2015 financial year the NUS employed a new chief executive – Simon Blake – on a bumper £100,000 salary – nearly five times the estimated £22,057 average for graduates that same year. In total, the NUS employs 69 of its 237 staff – roughly one third – on £30,000 a year or more. With the top degree in terms of average earning being dentistry (at £30,348), Guido is sure struggling students will be happy that the fat cats in the NUS are safely earning more than they could ever hope to while facilitating riotous protests and debates over not commemorating holocaust memorial day. Guido calculates that, with an average students’ union bar price of £2.40, the costs of staffing the NUS could buy 3,856,835 pints – or roughly four pints per student. What would you rather have? Paid-up fun police or four pints…

Hard Left Silent Over Venezuela Chaos

venezuela chaos

The pro-Chavez cabal at the heart of the British left threw their full support behind President Maduro’s socialist tyranny when he took over Venezuela in 2013. Owen Jones, Seumus Milne, Diane Abbott and even Jeremy Corbyn all piled in to support the regime, with Corbyn’s spin doctor Seamus Milne declaring “Venezuela and its progressive allies in Latin America matter to the rest of the world… because they have demonstrated that there are multiple social and economic alternatives to the failed neoliberal system that still has the west and its allies in its grip.” So where do they stand on Maduro now…

Neither Jones nor Milne have mentioned Venezuela on Twitter in a year, while Abbott and Corbyn have remained silent now for three. The failed Maduro regime, now falling apart, was always going to be the tyrannical logical conclusion of Chavez’s policies that these left-wingers ardently advocated at home and abroad. Shortages, hyper-inflation, riots, the regime’s continued crackdown on opposing voices and recent threats to nationalise private industries as a way to radicalise the revolution show all the hallmarks of a desperate regime on the verge of collapse. The Corbynista “economic alternative” model has failed spectacularly in Venezeula…

NUSceptics: National Disaffiliation Campaign From Loony Left Union

NUS quit

Students across the country reacted with disgust yesterday at the election of Malia “Zionist led media” Bouattia to the Presidency of the NUS. Coupled with an applauded attempt to stop the NUS specifically commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day, the far-left union involved in mass rioting and banning anti-racist campaigners for being racist truly jumped the shark.

It’s no surprise that a group of prominent student leaders from all over the UK are set to launch a national mass-disaffiliation campaign later today. While smaller successful campaigns have cropped up on individual campuses before, a national campaign incorporating a wide range of student groups has never been successful. Currently seven universities are set to launch the campaign, with the hope that more will join as news of the NUS’ latest barmy decisions spreads. The disaffiliations are expected to take form via campus-wide referendums, to take the decision away from far left unionists. Even students have caught referendum fever…

Anti-Racism Campaigner Dubbed Racist By NUS

nus

Hot on the heels of the no platforming of Peter Tatchell by right-on students, a group of NUS activists have decided to go one better and bar Hope Not Hate coordinator Nick Lowles from speaking at an event. Lowles, a left-wing anti-racism campaigner, is apparently too racist for the students, who have accused him of Islamophobia.

The loony student far-left eats itself…

UPDATE:

Corbynistas Split Over “Leaks to Right-Wing Bloggers”

‘Red Labour’ is one of the many groups of far-left agitators which campaigned to elect Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader. It boasts some 30,000 followers and grandly describes itself as “undoubtedly one of the big untold success stories of political social media campaigns in Britain”. Like all true loony lefty activist groups, it has now split.

A statement on the Red Labour Facebook page makes claims of bullying and intimidation by some members:

“the secrecy and anonymity surrounding this tight-knit group led to a culture of bullying and intimidation on the part of an self-selected and unaccountable elite”

The statement claims Alliance for Workers’ Liberty entryists have betrayed the Dear Leader:

“Significant numbers of members of a tiny far-left cult called the Alliance for Workers’ Liberty were invited into the fold. The intention here is transparently obvious. From a pro-Corbyn, pro-Momentum stance, the group then began openly attacking Jeremy Corbyn’s policies and Momentum. Members of this group explicitly expressed that they wanted to replace Momentum as the “voice of the Corbynites” and sought to work subversively in this broad movement to orchestrate a split to bolster their own ranks.”

They make claims of financial irregularities:

“Certain individuals wasted no time in exploiting these lucrative opportunities – even going so far as to demand an annual salary of £50, 000 from trade unions to continue Red Labour’s work, as well as their other salary working within a Labour-related organisation. A nice little earner, you say?”

The long whinge continues:

“several documents were leaked to right-wing bloggers to smear a leading Labour left winger”

You can read Guido’s story about the Leninist Momentum fixer who wiped his social media amid bullying claims here.

So what next for Red Labour? They are setting up a new group, of course: “Welcome to Red Labour v 2.0.” The Judean People’s Front are becoming the People’s Front of Judea…

Corbyn’s Crazy Commie Conference Crowdpleaser

Corbyn’s stand-out policy announcement at the Fabian conference this afternoon will be a preposterous ban on businesses distributing dividends unless they agree to act against inequality. The Labour leader will say:

“Another proposal would be to bar or restrict companies from distributing dividends until they pay all their workers the living wage. Only profitable employers will be paying dividends, if they depend on cheap labour for those profits then I think there is a question over whether that is a business model to which we should be turning a blind eye. Too much of the proceeds of growth have accumulated to those at the top.”

Attempting to “bar or restrict companies from distributing dividends” until they do what the state wants is particularly communist even for Jezza. It is also completely impractical. This is what you get when your policy chief is a loony lefty glorified Twitter troll.

Corbyn will also attack the Tories for “balancing the books”, describing attempts to reduce the deficit as a “fake concern”.

“Their concept of fairness is of a very different order to ours. Fairness for only a few is not fairness, but privilege. Hidden among the fake concern for ‘balancing the books’, is the same hoary old Tory ideology – to shrink the state, to shrink fairness.”

Labour could go after Osborne for missing his deficit targets and completely failing to balance the books. Instead, Corbyn tells voters Osborne is balancing the books, and that this is a bad thing. Onwards comrades!

Onto the Labour leadership race. Here in all its glory is Diane Abbott dismissing Jeremy Corbyn’s hopes of winning…

Of course Jezza did win, leading to a very different Labour party conference. Some expert lip-reading unearthed this gem: “Give ’em a wave, John…”

In the autumn, the meeting of the always hilarious Youth Parliament brought the rise and fall of an ambitious frontbencher:

Labour MP Warns of “World War Between Christians and Muslims”

Official Green Party Spokesman: ISIS Funded By Rothschilds

A stunning intervention into the realm of geopolitics from the Green Party, whose conspiracy theorist foreign affairs spokesman has told the BBC that ISIS are funded by the Rothschilds. Loony ex-Labour MP Tony Clarke told 5Live:

“There are British oil companies such as Genel Energy, run by Nathaniel Rothschild, one of George Osborne’s friends, who are making money, who are buying oil from ISIS, who are putting money into the pot, allowing ISIS therefore to fuel their evil across the world.”

That’s right, apparently it was “the Jews” all along.[…] Read the rest
