Corbynista Rulebook Saves Lansman’s NEC Dream

The battle to secure Constituency Labour Party nominations for three new positions on the party’s powerful National Executive Committee is underway. The Corbynista slate is headlined by Momentum supremo and veteran hard leftist Jon Lansman. His moderate opposition comes in the shape of serial loser Eddie Izzard…

Last night Lansman’s own CLP, Bermondsey and Old Southwark, rejected him. Lansman lost the CLP’s nomination to Izzard and two other candidates seen as anti-Corbyn. Previously, this local difficulty would have ended Lansman’s candidacy, as under the old Labour rules all NEC candidates had to be nominated by their home CLP. But Momentum forced through rule changes at conference meaning he is saved from disqualification…

Lansman – and his Corbynista ticket – aren’t doing badly, though. So-far he’s secured nominations from 109 CLPs. Eddie Izzard’s on 53. Lansman still expected to win…

Coincidence? O’Mara was once described as “Momentum’s first MP”Meanwhile Corbyn’s outriders Matt Zarb-Cousin and Paul Mason have turned on him…

Eddie Izzard Kiss of Death (NEC Edition)

Jon Lansman and the Momentum slate for Labour’s NEC election will be thrilled to hear their competition comes in the form of serial loser Eddie Izzard. ‘Experienced’ candidate Izzard is notorious for his electoral kiss-of-death. His campaign record in full…

  • Join the Euro;
  • Elect Ken Livingstone;
  • Win 2010 General Election for Gordon Brown;
  • Vote Yes in the AV referendum;
  • Win 2015 General Election for Ed Miliband;
  • Elect Andy Burnham as Labour leader;
  • Remain in the EU.

You could say Lansman’s got the momentum in this race…

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…

Momentum Soft Smut Snapper Rejected as Labour Candidate

A top Momentum activist Guido revealed as a soft smut glamour snapper has been turned down for selection as a Labour candidate because of his saucy extracurricular activities. Mike Fieldhouse, who boasted of working with“top price models” with “perfect body statistics”, applied to stand as a local election candidate in Southend. He was rejected after a video emerged of him posing-up sultry seductresses in stockings and suspenders. A letter to Fieldhouse from the assessment panel read:

“The decision not to approve your candidature this time was taken in respect of the potential for your profession as a glamour photographer and the work your produce in that role to cause embarrassment to the party and/or be used as a a political weapon by our opponents given the public coverage it has received thus far. It was further felt that your disclosure of this was insufficiently detailed and that you considered this a trivial matter.”

The smut-merchant got the hump and took to social media to bewail the decision:

Prudes…

Momentum Chair: “I’d Rather Have Solidarity With North Korea Than USA”

A Labour Party and Momentum official sports the flag of North Korea in her Twitter bio and says she has “solidarity” with the communist pariah state:

Sarah Cundy, who is the Canterbury CLP Youth Officer and Canterbury Momentum Chair, reckons the DPRK is “willing to stand up to imperialism” and “has weapons to keep themselves and their population safe”, concluding “I’d rather have solidarity with DPRK than the USA”:

She is pictured above with Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry and Canterbury Labour MP Rosie Duffield. Are they going to have a word?

Momentum’s Naff Plan to Photobomb Lunchtime News

Remember Momentum’s Michael Chessum? He’s the top Corbynista agitator who has talked ofviolent revolution”, “heads on sticks” and urged his comrades to “hold the streets”. What does Chessum’s big talk amount to in reality? Today he’s dressing up in a Tudor costume to make some point about Henry VIII powers and “photobomb the lunchtime news”. All mouth and no breeches…

Labour Expels Loon Who Threatened Jess Phillips

Mouthy Momentum nut Nadeem Ahmed, who threatened to run a deselection campaign against Jess Phillips, has been expelled from the Labour Party. Ahmed had been falsely claiming that Phillips “is racist”, demanding she apologise or he would “start deselection process” and boasting “Momentum is powerful force”. Unfortunately for him he also backed George Galloway ahead of the Labour candidate in Gorton, in obvious breach of party rules. Turns out the Labour compliance unit is also a powerful force…

Momentum’s John McTernan

Arch-Blairite John McTernan, February 2016: “The idiots in Momentum will destroy themselves before they destroy Labour… It’s war. Well it was always a war, really… Trying to sneak enemies of the Labour Party in through the back door as Momentum plan is the surest way to find out that the “the broad mainstream of Labour Party grassroots” do not welcome collusion with their electoral enemies. It is indeed a golden rule of politics – never underestimate the stupidity of your opponents.”

Top Corbynista John McTernan, August 2017: “Momentum is within the Labour Party, it’s made up of members of the Labour Party… there’s lots of energy amongst Momentum members… They’re adding something, some richness to the Labour Party that’s not in any other political party in Britain or even in Europe at the moment so it’s a very interesting initiative… I’m a member of Momentum myself, I joined it because of the energy around that movement.”

“The struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother…”

Seb Corbyn Embarrassed By Momentum Video Mocking Nepotism

Momentum have released a new video parodying a middle class garden lunch where the capitalist classes sneer at young Corbyn voters over glasses of white wine. The film mocks one posh character who says “People think they deserve a job without doing the necessary work to get it. Nobody ever helped me out” – the caption then goes on to say that this character “Got his job through his father”. A very brave line for Momentum to be taking given the Corbynistas’ own penchant for nepotism…

Seb Corbyn, son of Jez, is employed by John McDonnell. He “got his job through his father”, to coin a phrase. Then there is Laura Murray, a Shadow Cabinet adviser who is the daughter of Labour’s communist campaign chief Andrew Murray. John Prescott’s son David obviously got his job in the Leader’s Office on merit. And don’t get us started on how many of Jezza’s top team went to the same Winchester private school. Well done Momentum, slow clap.

Momentum Use Vote Leave Actress in Student Debt Video

Momentum last night posted a rushed rebuttal video attempting to limit the damage of Corbyn’s student debt u-turn. An eagle-eyed co-conspirator has noticed they employed the services of the same actress who starred in Vote Leave’s famous campaign video on the NHS back in May 2016. Sources confirmed the curly-haired blonde is indeed one and the same person. Does this mean Labour will be promising £350 million a week for the NHS?

Momentum Activists Threaten and Jeer Councillors Over Antisemitism Motion

This is the moment hard left activists backed by a London Momentum branch threatened, heckled and jeered Haringey councillors as they voted to adopt a standard definition of antisemitism. The agitators disturbed a full council meeting last night during a cross-party motion to adopt the Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition, which is officially recognised by the government and widespread in the public sector. The Jewish Chronicle reports that a Haringey Momentum Facebook group encouraged its activists to attend the meeting. Reportedly the group said:

“The campaign for councils to adopt these guidelines – which is not Labour Party national policy – has been ramped up in the context of the denigration of Corbyn’s leadership of the Labour Party.”

After the meeting, Labour Councillor Joe Goldberg tweeted how he had been “threatened” and “shouted down” by “momentum people“, and squarely blamed the Corbynista group for “hosting a lobby” against the motion:

The entire incident was recorded on video; one heckler is heard to shout: “We’ll see you in your constituency Labour Party”Menacing…

End of the RoadTrip Cost Tories This Time Round

Since the election there has been much talk of the need for a “Tory Momentum”, a grassroots, youth-based movement to hit the streets and take the fight to the Corbynista hordes. The problems with this are numerous. The Tories are not in vogue. There is no young, modern leader and the boring old grey hairs are in charge. Labour has the marketing advantage: it is much easier to capture youthful imagination with idealistic fantasies about writing off student debts, than honest and uninspiring messages pointing out the other lot would ruin the country. And there is also another issue which Tory MPs have identified…

There was a Tory Momentum in 2015. It was called RoadTrip, organised by Tatler Tory Mark Clarke. With the promise of free booze and getting laid, it inspired hundreds of young Tories to sign up. Like Momentum it aroused media attention and controversy: bullying, factionalism, rule-breaking, lines crossed, wrong ‘uns misbehaving. Yet it was punchy, aggressive, ideologically committed, hugely successful and played a significant role in the 2015 election victory, managing to get large numbers of activists to travel across the country and help Tory candidates. It then became mired in scandal – battle bus expenses and the death of Elliot Johnson – so was shut down and not replaced at the 2017 election. 

A number of MPs believe the RoadTrip scandals and ensuing collapse of a pugnacious Tory youth movement cost them the election. MPs felt outnumbered and outgunned by Labour’s highly organised young activists, yet there was no Tory equivalent because replicating RoadTrip had become politically impossible. Flashy Twitter graphics and videos produced centrally from CCHQ are one thing, they don’t compare to an organic, genuine youth movement which can push the boundaries with a degree of plausible deniability for HQ. If RoadTrip 2015 hadn’t ended in disgrace, RoadTrip 2017 might just have tipped the Tories towards a majority…

New Labour Spinner Boasted of “Bullying” Angela Eagle

Labour has hired a new spinner from Momentum who once boasted of “bullying” Angela Eagle. Sophie Nazemi has been sending press releases on behalf of the party this morning. Last year, she was caught in the Mail on Sunday’s undercover sting on Momentum, where she was a volunteer at the time. Nazemi was recorded talking about how Momentum would expose former leadership candidate Angela Eagle’s voting record, boasting: “What we are doing is low-key bullying for Eagle to resign”. Remember at the time Eagle was the victim of aggression and intimidation from hard-left thugs. Nazemi also talked up the alt-left news outlet Novara Media, calling them Momentum’s “militant wing”. Corbyn’s office has long wanted to ditch the current HQ press team and replace them with true believers, is this a sign they’re finally getting their way? 

Corbynistas Must “Hold the Streets” If There’s a Coup Against PM Corbyn

Remember top Momentum agitator Michael Chessum? Earlier this year he said Labour should ditch the “kinder, gentler politics” in favour of “heads on sticks” – and given goings on in Liverpool it looks like he’s getting his way. But now Chessum is worried. In a message to fellow Corbynistas he has warned that, should Corbyn become Prime Minister, his supporters must prepare for a “coup” and be ready to “hold the streets” and “bleed for the cause“.

The Greek left was splintered and argumentative, but extremely organised and ideologically serious. It would bleed for the cause… How will the people who’ve gone doorstepping for us react if international markets sabotage the British economy for years? Have we prepared the people who chanted for Jeremy at Glastonbury for the fact that, at some stage, they may only be able to withdraw 50 quid a day if the credit runs dry? If there is a very British coup, will they hold the streets?”

Chessum previously failed to rule out the possibility of a violent revolution. Now he is getting Momentum ready to man the barricades in Downing Street…

Momentum Glamour Snapper Seeks CLP Chairmanship

Britain’s top Corbynista ‘glamour photographer’ Mike Fieldhouse remains set on climbing the greasy pole of Labour politics. The soft smut snapper lost out in his bid to become South East regional chair of Momentum; he was busted when a video emerged showing him posing-up sultry models clad in stockings, corsets and thigh-high leather boots. He was also running a website called ‘MAFWorld: Life through the lens of a glamour photographer’, which has now been taken offline. Can’t have done his feminist credentials any good…

Now Fieldhouse is seeking to become chair of Rochford & Southend East CLP. Guido hears local Momentum members are turning a blind eye to his day job in order to cement a Corbynista foothold. Socialism isn’t sexy…

Corbynistas Trying to Use Data Protection Laws to Reinstate Suspended Members

Mandatory re-selection and a purge at HQ are just the beginning of the Corbynista consolidation plan. The next step is to reinstate those nutty members suspended for various offences last year. Hundreds of Corbyn supporters were censured by the party’s Compliance Unit for tweets and Facebook statuses that breached Labour rules, either on grounds of anti-Semitism or supporting another political party.

Now Corbynistas are launching legal challenges to prevent the Compliance Unit from using evidence gleaned from their social media accounts. They have complained to the Information Commissioner, claiming it is a breach of the Data Protection Act for screengrabs from their Facebook and Twitter accounts to be used against them. Corbynistas have been writing to General Secretary Iain McNicol stating they do not consent to their “private” data being used by Labour HQ. At least one suspended member claims to have had their complaint upheld.

This is bonkers. In the vast majority of cases the social media posts are publicly available broadcasts from foolish members. Would be laughable if Labour reinstates these anti-Semites and Trotskyist entryists on a technicality… 

Momentum Move to Deselect Cancer Survivor MP

Momentum organisers are laying the groundwork to deselect Thangam Debbonaire, the Bristol West MP and cancer survivor who won the second highest number of Labour votes in Britain. An amendment to Labour’s constitution – intended to make it easier to challenge and deselect sitting MPs – was backed by local Momentum members last night. That move is expected to be repeated across the country, meaning the deselection amendment will likely be debated at conference in September. A Labour source told the Bristol Post:

It’s scandalous that a clique of Jeremy Corbyn supporters refuse to accept the huge mandate that Thangam received at the general election.

Debbonaire managed to increase her majority to 37,336 – the fourth biggest in the UK as a whole – up from 5,673 in 2015. That despite battling cancer during the last parliament. Peak Momentum…

Tory MP Reveals Hard-Left Intimidation

Tory MP Sheryll Murray says that during the election campaign swastikas were carved into her posters, social media posts called for her to be stabbed and people urinated on her office door. Notable that Labour MPs heckled as Murray revealed the extent of hard-left intimidation… 

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“.[…] Read the rest

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
