Chris Williamson’s Epilogue

While Chris Williamson may have lost his seat, it isn’t stopping him campaigning. He’s released a video blaming Corbyn’s defeat on a “hostile foreign government“. Can you guess which one?

No prizes for guessing it was Israel. Invokes memories of when the Canary had to downsize after their ad revenue collapsed and blamed it on political Zionists

He’s still on the loony left-wing circuit with his “Democracy Roadshow“, campaigning to defend Corbynism and “stop the witch-hunt“. He lost his Derby North seat to the Amanda Solloway, a Tory. He lost his deposit. Guido can’t recall any sitting MP ever losing their deposit before…

Labour Suffers Because Literal Communists Get Too Much Airtime

As much as it amuses Guido and generates television producer pleasing social media buzz, hasn’t the rise of the TrotsApp generation of talking heads on our screens undermined the Labour Party more effectively than the “billionaire-owned media” could ever do? In the postmortems the effect of the continuous platforming by broadcasters of far-left types – just because they are extremely active on Twitter – by current affairs shows should be reflected on. It normalised people who would in the past have only been selling Trotskyite papers outside train stations.

The negative effect is two-fold, firstly the zealous Labour activist base become ever more radicalised as the self-defined Trotskyites and communists normalise policies that are far away from the views and values of traditional Labour voters. As we found out last week.

Secondly, it just encourages polarisation, pitting Katie Hopkins against a silly luxuriating communist might make a noisy and watchable bunfight, does it really inform the viewers much? Policy development is made in think tanks of the left, right and centre. It is made by single-issue campaigns with deep knowledge of their subjects. It is not made by people who scream about billionaires and want “to kick the Tories out of Labour” whilst describing the Prime Minister as a fascist and “alt-right”. Shouting slogans and their well rehearsed soundbites doesn’t add to the sum of political knowledge in any meaningful way.

This is not to say they should be no-platformed. When Paul Mason or Owen Jones has a book out, let’s hear from them. They are articulate voices of the left, that articulacy alone does not warrant giving them almost continuous airtime. Do we really need them on our screens every day? That hasn’t done the Labour Party any good. Producers and bookers may want to reflect and seek out more representative left-of-centre voices.

Corbynistas Call for Ashworth to be Sacked

Corbynistas don’t seem to be buying Ashworth’s story that he was only joking in the leaked recording Guido revealed this morning. The Labour leader’s army of online followers are clearly not at all happy with the behind closed doors disloyalty of the Shadow Health Secretary. The post-election bloodletting with be brutal…

Churchill-Hating MSP is Self-Described Communist and Kim Jong-Un Fan

Ross Greer was elected to the Scottish Parliament in 2016, as one of six Green Party MSPs. He rose to UK wide attention this week, attracting the ire of Piers Morgan, by calling Winston Churchill a “white supremacist” and a “mass murderer” on Twitter. People shouldn’t have been surprised. Greer has a long and distinguished history of writing stupid things on Twitter…

Guido has compiled some of the sillier and more sinister things he has tweeted over the years. These include…

  • Wanting the Scottish Youth Parliament to congratulate Kim Jong Un
  • Calling for “FULL COMMUNISM”
  • Calling on the Greens to oppose “NATO imperialism”
  • Wanting to sing the Internationale
  • Resenting being called a “former” communist
  • Stating that the only war was “class war”
  • Calling himself a “watermelon” (green outside, red inside)
  • Admitting to chanting “we’re selling the Falklands when Thatcher dies” at Tories

What a lovely chap. Read a curated selection of his tweets below…

On Bastani Being Bastani

Guido has an editorial policy of trying to ignore the ever attention-seeking Aaron Bastani. Currently he has however managed to attract widespread tabloid attention by soiling himself on the subject of the Poppy Appeal; arguing “Close down the British Legion”, “It’s racist, it’s white supremacist”, “F**k off the Invictus Games” and apparently “Mocking people who live on housing estates”. He’s entitled to hold his stupid views in a free society.

He’s on the BBC’s Any Questions tonight. Note there are no calls from conservative leaning politicians or media for him to be no-platformed. That is a left-wing tactic of closed minds. Suspect the infantile leftist will enjoy the all attention, the Devon crowd’s questions however will be less than enjoyable for him…

Morning Star: “Bogus” Anti-Semitism Exploited By “Wealthy and Powerful Circles”

Not so much a dog whistle in this Morning Star editorial, and more of a foghorn. Apparently “wealthy and powerful circles” are traducing the Palestinian cause and exploiting “the bogus anti-semitism furore” surrounding Jeremy Corbyn. The editorial then goes on to attack the Munich widows. Who could they possibly mean by “wealthy and powerful circles”?
