Corbyn’s Project Claims He Was Subject to “The Most Intense Political Assassination in Modern British History”

While we’re waiting on Jezza to pull his finger out and finally decide to reconstitute his ‘Peace & Justice Project’ into a new political party, he’s been busy still not getting over the 2019 election result. Yesterday yet another sore-loser interview was published, with the independent MP once again refusing any blame for Labour’s decimation, and accusing outlets like The Guardian and the BBC of outrageously focusing on his antisemitism crisis:

“I have absolutely no illusions in the Guardian, none whatsoever,” Corbyn tells me. “My mum brought me up to read the Guardian. She said, ‘It’s a good paper you can trust’. You can’t. After their treatment of me, I do not trust the Guardian.”

“He continues: “So was I surprised? No. And I’ve had to live with the behaviour of the Guardian ever since. But the Guardian is in a unique position because it is the paper most read by Labour Party members, is the most important in forming opinion on the centre and left in British politics. And they are very well aware of that, which is why I think an analysis of the Guardian’s treatment of the time that I was leader of the party needs to be made because they and the BBC had more unsourced reporting of anti-semitic criticisms surrounding me than any other paper, including the Mail, The Telegraph and the Sun.””

Off the back of this, the publisher, Declassified UK, makes the following incredibly misjudged assessment:

“The media assault on Corbyn during his tenure as Labour leader from 2015-20 will be recorded as perhaps the most intense political assassination in modern British history.”

An assessment Corbyn’s Peace & Justice Project clearly agrees with, actively picking the quote out when sharing the interview:

Guido suspects the families of Jo Cox and Sir David Amess would disagree with the self-pitying hyperbole…

Claudia Webbe Back in Court Today

Claudia Webbe is back in court today to “clear her name” by appealing her harassment conviction and sentence following the trial last November. Webbe was whacked with a 10-week jail term, suspended for two years, for threatening to throw acid over her partner’s friend and share naked pictures of her. Labour eventually suspended her from the party after the verdict, although Webbe has still been swanning around Parliament as an independent MP for the last six months… 

This morning her lawyer released a statement:

“Ms Webbe continues to maintain her innocence and is looking forward to the opportunity to clear her name. Her priority is to continue to serve the people of Leicester East. She will not be answering any further questions at this stage, and asks that her privacy be respected. ”

Why should her privacy be respected? She was convicted of a crime in an open court – there is no reason why her privacy should be respected in this matter. The Labour Party has previously said they’ll push for a recall petition and a by-election if Webbe doesn’t resign if her appeal doesn’t overturn the judgement. The hearing is expected to last two days. It’s all or nothing…

Corbyn Backed Kremlin Propagandist

Self-proclaimed “independent journalist” Graham Phillips is having a rough ride in the press at the moment. The former civil servant – who now spends his days spreading Russian propaganda, calling support for Ukraine “virtue signalling“, and goading Ukrainian prisoners of war into denouncing their country – is being hammered in the British newspapers for his alleged ties to the Kremlin. Fortunately, he may have a parliamentary ally on his side during these tough times…

After being released from Ukrainian detention in 2014, caused by his coverage of the Crimean War for Russia Today, it was none other than Jeremy Corbyn who publicly celebrated the news as a “happy outcome“:

Yesterday Jeremy could barely even bring himself to admit he admires Zelensky’s leadership…

Corbyn Claims He “Doesn’t Know” If He Admires Zelensky, Refuses to Rule Out Starting New Party

Another standout interview from the independent MP for Islington North this afternoon, with Jeremy performing all his greatest hits in the space of just a few minutes. Everything from disbanding NATO, to dismissing antisemitism under his leadership, to his plans for starting a new party – a real crowdpleaser of a show from the absolute boy…

Asked if he plans to start a new party to challenge Labour at the next election (since the odds of Starmer restoring the whip are basically 0), Corbyn said:

“I don’t know what the future is going to bring… I am focused on representing my constituency, being a member of Parliament and on saying to the Labour Party, to win the next election you have to appeal to people.”

Of course, if there’s one person who could give Keir Starmer advice on winning elections, it’s Jeremy Corbyn…

When asked if he admires Zelensky as a leader, Corbyn claimed he “doesn’t know” because he’s “never met him.” Presumably he spent plenty of time with Mary Wollstonecraft then, because he’s previously insisted she’s his “political hero”…

Then on disbanding NATO, Jeremy once again insisted it would be a good idea:

I would want to see a world where we start to ultimately disband all military alliances. The issue has to be what’s the best way of bringing about peace in the future? Is it by more alliances? Is it by more military build up? Or is it by stopping the war in Ukraine and the other wars, which you haven’t mentioned at all in this discussion that are going on at the present time, which are also killing a very large number of people? And ask yourself the question, do military alliances bring peace? Or do they actually encourage each other and build up to a greater danger?

All in all, another great showing. A real mystery why Sir Keir wants nothing to do with him…

NHS Cult Now Want to Know Tory MPs’ Private Medical Details

Forget committing the cardinal sin of questioning the NHS’s budget, it now seems followers of the UK’s largest religion are intent on prying into Tory MPs’ medical affairs. Browsing WhatDoTheyKnow – a database of public FoI requests and answers – Guido spots ‘Save Our NHS in Kent’ have developed a concern that Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay might be daring to not use our National Health Service. Surely a resigning matter…

Mackinlay says he is more than aware of the Carly Jeffrey in question, who was the agent for his Labour opponent in 2019, and whose local party branch have become obsessed with this conspiracy. The Thanet MP tells Guido that he’s surprised by Jeffrey’s claims of his medical arrangements given she’d only know with access to the records of the accountancy firm in question; he is willing to “save her the trouble” of any further investigating into the theory, specifying “this is categorically not the case”. God forbid any Tories dare have private health arrangements outside the scope of our beloved NHS…

Rayner Claims Pacifist Corbyn Would Have Sent Missiles to Ukraine

Angela Rayner’s appearance on Marr’s LBC show last night was one for the ages. As if no one else remembers the last five years, Rayner suggested without a hint of irony that a Corbyn government “would have given” missiles to Ukraine, and that Jeremy was very clear on his condemnation of Putin, long before it was popular to do that”It’s amazing she kept a straight face.

Never mind the fact that Corbyn insisted the UK government send Novichock samples back to Russia for their own “testing” after Salisbury. Just ten days before the invasion of Ukraine last month, Corbyn signed this statement from the Stop the War coalition:

“…the British government has sent arms to Ukraine and deployed further troops to Eastern Europe, moves which serve no purpose other than inflaming tensions and indicating disdain for Russian concerns. It has also declared that Ukraine has a “sovereign right” to join NATO, when no such right exists to join it or any other military alliance.”

“We refute the idea that NATO is a defensive alliance, and believe its record in Afghanistan, Yugoslavia and Libya over the last generation, not to mention the US-British attack on Iraq, clearly proves otherwise.”

Russian concerns? Which way would Jeremy’s missiles have been firing?

UPDATE: Readers have also pointed out that elsewhere in the same interview Rayner also accused Putin of using nuclear weapons on British soil.
