Hitler Row Labour Candidate: British Government Did 7/7 Bombings

Remarkably Labour still won’t comment on Guido’s story about their candidate Naz Khan defending Hitler and asking “what good have the Jews done?”. Even more extraordinarily they are keeping her as a candidate. Will they when they see this?

Above is a Facebook post which claimed the “government plotted 7/7 attacks to boost Iraq war support”, pushing conspiracy theories that “the four British Muslims involved were tricked by the authorities into taking part”. Naz Khan then commented below: “Thought provoking… an eye opener, not to believe everything in the news”. Not only is this person clearly anti-Semitic, she seems to believe it is possible the government carried out the 7/7 bombings. The sort of person Labour want as a candidate in Bradford…

Marxist Medicine: The Lancet Editor Praises Karl

Check out this bizarre piece praising Karl Marx in one of Britain’s leading peer-reviewed medical journals, The Lancet, this month. The article isn’t just a junior leftie medic’s fantasy: it’s by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief Dr Richard Horton. He writes:

“Marxism is a call to engage, an invitation to join the struggle to protect the values we share. You don’t have to be a Marxist to appreciate Marx. As the centenary* of his birth approaches, we might agree that medicine has a great deal to learn from Marx.”

Marx you feel sick!

*He means bi-centenary.

Crackpot Chris Williamson Smears Laura K

Nutjob Corbynista frontbencher Chris Williamson plumbs new depths by promoting a mad Skwawkbox conspiracy theory smearing Laura Kuenssberg. The Skwawkbox piece is proper tin foil hat stuff, going through Laura K’s reporting line by line trying to find anti-Labour bias. They even have to ask their readers not to resort to “violence or abuse” at the end of the post. And Williamson is delighting in riling his followers up by promoting this guff. What a shower.

Mr Rayner’s Alternative to Badger Cull

Since badger killing is in the news at the moment, worth taking a look at the Corbynista view of the cull. Angela Rayner’s husband Mark, a top trade union official, suggests an alternative plan on his Facebook page, posting this charming “Cull the Tories” graphic. Kinder, gentler…

Young Labour: Leave NATO, Abolish the City and Reject Two-State Solution

Young Labour’s weekend conference gave us a taste of what things will be like in the People’s Republic of England in 2048. The cream of the party’s future gathered in Warwick to call for the introduction of capital controls, a ban on NATO and an end to the commitment to a two state solution in Israel-Palestine. Insiders say the group is still split between Corbynistas and moderates. No doubt who is winning judging by the motions that passed…

On the other hand, a motion calling for the mutual recognition of Israel and Palestine and committing to a two-state solution was rejected. And check out the text of this motion on shutting down the City brought by Oxford University’s top Corbynista Michael Muir:

“The operational effectiveness of our Greek comrades’ decision to impose capital controls was hamstrung by the European Central Bank’s political decisions and its lack of control over its own currency…

The City of London, broadly understood, is a reactionary special interest… Capital controls are not a neutral policy instrument but a reflection of the balance of class forces… The City of London Corporation must be abolished and its functions transferred into democratic control… That the operational independence of the Bank of England should be ended.”

Finally, Jez turned up and failed to rule out nationalising Greggs. Votes at 16?

Momentum Splitters Oppose Lansman Stitch Up

Much to the dismay of Labour moderates, conference created three new places on the party’s powerful NEC. Each is expected to be filled by hard-left candidates, but the vacancies have sparked a power struggle at the top of Momentum to secure the Corbynista group’s official nominations. Momentum this morning announced a list of four names it is backing for the NEC: its founder and chair Jon Lansman, Yasmine Dar, a Manchester councillor, Rachel Garnham, a National Policy Forum member, and Cecile Wright, Momentum Vice Chair. Lansman’s place seems certain…

Lansman’s shoo-in is resented by Trot Momentum factions who see his selection as comparable to nepotism under New Labour. Guido hears heads on sticks” student protest leader Michael Chessum, who expressed concerns that young Corbynistas weren’t ready to “bleed for the cause”, stood for the Momentum nomination and made the shortlist, but not the final four. Chessum took to social media to complain: “would have been much better if the process was an open election.” Meanwhile, Jackie Walker has blasted Lansman’s preferment as “very imperial”. The Trots think Lansman’s advocacy for party democratisation makes his easy ride onto the NEC all the more ironic. One Labour member said: “they’re still in favour of one member one vote, it’s just that that one member is Jon Lansman”Splitters…

Police Investigating “Hang the Tories” Effigies

After our story on the “Hang the Tories” banner and effigies hanging from a bridge in Manchester went viral, GMP Salford tell Guido it is being investigated as a public order crime.

Manchester mayor Andy Burnham: “This is just wrong. We will always protect the right to protest but never to threaten, abuse or incite violence. It should come down”.

Local MP Lucy Powell: “On behalf of our city and my constituency, we’re sorry about this. We disagree with, and are angry with your policies, but we wish you no harm”.

Good to know…

Hard-Left Threats Force Tories to Cancel Conference Events

Tory activists have been forced to cancel events in Manchester next week after anti-austerity, anti-Brexit and anti-badger cull animal rights extremists declared plans to “lay siege” to Conservative party conference. Banners calling on people to “hunt Tories” have appeared on bridges around Manchester this week. Plans seen by Guido include:

  • A “F**k the Tories” party at a venue called the “Partisan Collective”
  • A 200-strong “flash mob” to meet Tory delegates at Manchester Piccadilly station
  • A “Theresa May: Human Catastrophe” protest timed to coincide with the Prime Minister’s speech
  • One activist declared: “Bollocks to being civil” 

Tameside Conservatives had planned to hold a gin tasting event in central Manchester on Saturday night but the soiree has been scrapped after “intimidation from left-wing activists”. A member of the Tory group said:

“Unfortunately, we have to cancel this event due to intimidation from left-wing activists. In the interest of the security of our guests and the venue, we have no option but to cancel. This is the first time I have had to cancel an event and it is sad to do so under the given circumstances.”

Hard-left paper Counterfire reported on a meeting where activists plotted to go “into battle” against Conservatives:

“The Tories’ mistake was to return to Manchester. This produced a cheer…. Events would begin on Friday the 29th of September and go through to Wednesday the 3rd: these will include a club night; film screenings and comedy. Mike Leigh, who is currently making a film about the Peterloo massacre, will be involved. There is a possibility of Jeremy Corbyn coming to speak.”

Team Corbyn say he is not likely to attend but don’t rule it out. Greater Manchester Police will want to make sure there is not a repeat of their shambolic performance last time…

Ken: Anti-Semitism is Fake News

Ken was on TV talking about Hitler again this morning. Corbynistas keep saying they swiftly deal with anti-Semitism, and yet they won’t expel their old comrade…

A lesson for young voters that freedom-hating Corbynistas would take away their cheap holidays and travel. Socialism isn’t cool kids…

Journalists Heckled and Questions Banned at Labour Venezuela Event

Labour conference heard a message of solidarity from the Venezuelan ambassador last night before top Corbynista Chris Williamson went full shouty crackers. Williamson awkwardly singled out Nick Cohen and Michael Crick, calling out their names at least fifteen times and wildly demanding to know why they weren’t “celebrating” Venezuela. As wide-eyed Williamson went Caracas, Cohen asked if the journalists under attack could ask questions. John McDonnell’s PPS Karen Lee shouted “No”. Cohen asked again: “We can’t ask questions?”, to which Lee replied: “Absolutely not”. All a bit odd and embarrassing for Williamson really, journalists were left wondering if he’s all there…

Stop the War Side With North Korea

The Stop the War fringe event at Labour conference is always a laugh. Last night Corbyn aide Andrew Murray, who has previously expressed open support for North Korea, gave this absolutely textbook example of the “Stop the War but”:

“Now North Korea’s own conduct is often provocative and belligerent, I don’t defend its rhetoric, but this is a country which perhaps has learned the lesson from the Iraq War, that Iraq got invaded when it did not have weapons of mass destruction. So being threatened continually by the Americans you go out and you get them.”

Stop the War veteran Lindsey German then argued North Korea gets unfair treatment compared with other countries:

“I don’t agree with what Kim Jong Un is doing but let’s face it, the North Koreans are testing some missiles most weeks, the Americans test something like a thousand missiles a year, the Indians and Pakistanis test nuclear weapons, nobody puts sanctions on them, nobody threatens them with war… The war in Korea which went on for three years was devastating for the people of North Korea. They had absolutely no targets left to hit because they destroyed every single town in that part of the country. They deliberately targeted dams so that they would flood the rice fields and they would therefore starve the population. This is the record of America in Korea, and they wonder why people might be a little bit suspicious.”

“I don’t agree with Kim Jong Un, but…”

Labour Enlist Communist to Prepare For Run on Pound If Corbyn Wins

John McDonnell admitted last night that there could be a run on the pound if Labour wins the next general election and Jeremy Corbyn becomes Prime Minister:

“What happens if there is a run on the pound? I don’t think there will, but you never know, so we’ve got the scenario plan for that… people will want to know we are ready and they want to know we’ve got a response to everything that could happen.”

Labour are war gaming what to do if there is a run on the pound – the plans are being undertaken by the Corbynista digital guru Richard Barbrook, who readers will remember supported the IRA’s armed struggle. He calls himself a “cybernetic communist” and wrote the book on “Cyber-Communism”. Sure that’ll calm anyone’s worries…

Saint Jeremy

Definitely not a cult…

Chris Williamson Defends “Jews Financed Slave Trade” Jackie Walker

Readers will remember Jackie Walker, who was suspended from the Labour Party not once but twice for claiming “Jews” financed the slave trade and attacking Holocaust Memorial Day. She’s being supported by top Corbynistas at conference…

Jackie has been speaking at fringe events… Have they let her back in again?

Labour Fringe: Expel Jewish Group From Party, Israel Like Nazis

A fringe event at Labour conference has heard calls to expel Jewish activists from the party, while a speaker compared Israel to Nazis and the audience was banned from tweeting in an attempt to silence “hostile” coverage. The room echoed its agreement as a speaker protested that the Jewish Labour Movement was given a campaigning awarded yesterday, instead calling for the group and Labour Friends of Israel to be “kicked out” of the party. A speaker, Miko Peled, said Israel and Israelis should not be treated differently to white South Africans during Apartheid or Nazis. He claimed Israel was committing “genocide” in Gaza. He said those present should stop calling Israel by its name, a view taken up by other speakers who then referred to it only as “the Zionist state”. The notorious Tony Greenstein, who was suspended by Labour for ranting about “Zionist scum” was applauded, and there were cheers for Ken Livingstone.

The fringe event was titled “Free Speech on Israel” – the chair Naomi Wimborne ordered the audience not to tweet, take pictures, film or record the event because there may be “hostile” people present. Guido recorded the entire event. Wimborne interrupted proceedings halfway through to order a young man to stop tweeting. Not sure the “Free Speech” campaigners got the irony…

UPDATE: Jeremy Newmark, Chair of the Jewish Labour Movement responds:

“This is a thinly veiled call to purge Jews from the Labour Party. It is a stark example of why Party Conference must vote decidedly tomorrow to pass JLM’s Rule Change on antisemitism. The group whose meeting provided an arena for this hate speech was allowed to advertise it official Party literature. That is far from the zero tolerance on antisemtism that the leadership have promised.”

UPDATE II: Jennifer Gerber, LFI Director said:

“It’s beyond disgraceful that today at Labour Party Conference there have been calls to expel Labour Friends of Israel and the Jewish Labour Movement from the party. Supporting the world’s only Jewish state is a mainstream and long-standing Labour position. We hope the Labour Party leadership acts swiftly to condemn those who seek to bully pro-Israel and Jewish members out of the party.”

Labour Reckon Civil Service Think Their Disarmament Plan is “Brilliant”

How’s this for a conference laugh. Labour’s “Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament” Fabian Hamilton has recounted the tale of what happened when Emily Thornberry met the Foreign Office permanent under-secretary Sir Simon McDonald during the election to discuss the event of a Labour win. The plan for day one: appoint a Cabinet minister with responsibility to disarm the UK…

“Just before the General Election on June 8th, Emily Thornberry and Jennifer Larbie, Head of International Policy for Jeremy’s Office, they went to see Sir Simon McDonald who is the Under-Secretary at the Foreign Office, that means by the way that he is the boss, he’s the senior United Kingdom Diplomat… When Emily and Jennifer put to Sir Simon that the idea that if we won on Thursday and if we win in the future – when we win in the future – we will create, because it’s in the manifesto, a Minister, a Secretary of State, a Cabinet role, for Peace and Disarmament, and that would include the Ministry of Defence and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. And McDonald’s reply was: ‘Brilliant, that’s a really good idea.'”

Oh to have seen Sir Simon’s face…

Speaking at a Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament fringe meeting, Hamilton also recounted a phone call with Corbyn during which he said the Labour leader reiterated his opposition to nuclear weapons:

“He [Jeremy Corbyn] said: ‘You and I have been active in Parliamentary CND and I have always taken the view that our independent nuclear deterrent is a waste of money and worse.'”

A member of Labour’s National Policy Forum outlined plans to bring forward motions at next year’s conference to make nuclear disarmament official party policy. George Downs said scrapping nukes was “Jeremy’s vision” and the left’s capture of the party’s Conference Arrangements Committee could be used to bring it about:

“Fingers crossed this time next year we will be debating the National Policy Forum Report which includes nuclear disarmament, but if not a contemporary motion which isn’t ruled out of order by this new Conference Arrangements Committee, and we can get Labour Party policy which is in line with Jeremy’s vision.”

Could unilateral disarmament become official Labour policy this time next year?

“Brexit is Racist” March Kicks Off Labour Conference

Labour conference rolled into Brighton today and the town came to a standstill for an anti-Brexit, open-borders march convened by hard left group Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary. Protesters chanted “Brexit is racist” outside the conference venue, speakers denounced the Home Office and immigration detention centers as “racist” and shouted: “open the borders”One banner read: “Communism not Corbynism, Abolish the Police, Smash the Borders”…

Anti-fascist and anarchist flags were also on display:

Welcome to Brighton…
