Lansman Was at Unite HQ Two Weeks Ago

Unite have responded to the Jon Lansman – Tom Watson row by issuing a bold statement claiming there is no Momentum plot and that Lansman and Len McCluskey have never met:

“Tom Watson has made claims about Unite and its general secretary Len McCluskey which are entirely inaccurate. As Unite has made it clear it is exclusively for our executive council to determine which organisations we affiliate to. There are no plans for Unite to affiliate to Momentum. For the record, Len McCluskey has never met Jon Lansman to discuss this or any other matter.”

Hmm…

We know from reports at the time that Lansman attended a summit at Unite’s training centre at Esher Place last year. It was hosted by – you guessed it – Len McCluskey. Unlikely the pair wouldn’t have met there…

Guido can also reveal that Lansman was at Unite HQ on Monday, 6 March. Indeed, we caught him on video entering their building in Holborn. Guido understands a meeting of the Unite executive council – a key body that must be consulted before any affiliation – was held there that day. No plot, no plans, no meeting ever with Len? Oh really…

Momentum Chief: “I Am a Moderate”

Momentum’s Christine Shawcroft is the subject of much micky-tacking from Labour Blairites this morning after telling the Today programme she considers herself a moderate. To be fair to Christine, it’s true that she is on the moderate wing of Momentum. She only wants Lutfur Rahman to control Tower Hamlets and thinks British soldiers should invite ISIS fighters round for tea. That snap election looks more tempting with every Corbynista broadcast interview…

Tom Watson v Jon Lansman

Sit back, grab the popcorn and enjoy: Labour’s civil war is boiling over in public following the leaked tape of Momentum boss Jon Lansman discussing his plot to take over the party. Tom Watson says Lansman “will destroy the Labour Party” and must “be stopped”.

Lansman hits back:

Lansman has waited decades in the wilderness for the hard-left to be back in charge of Labour. He ain’t gonna give it up without a fight…

Owen Jones Driven Off Twitter by Left-Wing Haters

Owen Jones today announces he is “taking a break” from social media because he is finding it “a) totally unproductive and b) frankly just completely and utterly depressing.” In an extraordinary Facebook post aimed at the hard left, Jones wrote this morning:

“On a daily basis I have angry strangers yelling at me, on the one hand, that I’m responsible for the destruction of the Labour Party, and on the other, I’m a right-wing sellout careerist who’s allied to Tony Blair and possibly in the pay of the Israeli government (and that I’m a Blairite c*** who needs to go fuck myself, and so on and so forth)…

“Both my parents are staunch supporters of Jeremy Corbyn; they’re leading members of their local Momentum branch. They don’t agree with lots of what I’ve said. Unlike the increasingly frothing keyboard warriors, neither doubts for a second that what I says comes from the heart…

“I’m just wasting my life. I wouldn’t choose to walk every day into a room full of total strangers screaming mindless abuse and making up what I think and what my motives are, but in a sense that’s what I’m currently doing.”

Labour is tearing itself apart in cyberspace…

Momentum Activists Awarding the “Order of Lansman”

Pro-Corbyn activists are aping infamous Soviet decoration the Order of Lenin to recognise each other’s campaigning achievements. Young Momentum activists have instituted the “Order of Lansman” to present to their comrades. The ‘medal’ is a plastic badge bearing a modified image of a triumphant Christ overlaid with Momentum chief Jon Lansman’s face. Infamous recipients of the real-world Order of Lenin include the likes of Stalin, General Tito and traitorous British double agent Kim Philby. A Facebook post reveals:

“The Order of Lansman (est.2017) is the highest civilian award on the Labour Left and awarded only to those in #thecorrectposition”

More on those involved with the “Order of Lansman” to follow…

Top Corbynista: Ditch “Kinder, Gentler Politics”, We Want “Heads on Sticks”

Momentum’s former treasurer Michael Chessum, who sat on the Corbynista campaign group’s steering committee, has called for an end to the mantra of a “kinder, gentler politics” and argued Labour should seek “heads on sticks”. Chessum, who was on the hard-left of the Momentum and is an ally of Trots like Jill Mountford, writes:

“The problem is that what Corbyn had to do to win Labour is almost antithetical to what can win the country. “Kinder, gentler politics” is motherhood and apple pie to many Labour members, who disdain infighting and aggression. But in an era of hardship, resentment and populism, what the public wants is not “kinder, gentler politics” but “heads on sticks”. Labour is losing by-elections and sitting 16 points behind in the polls because it is failing to present a clear narrative for whose heads should go on which sticks.”

Remember this is the same Michael Chessum who failed to condemn the student violence back in 2010:

Chessum was on the completely mental wing of Momentum, rather than the merely dangerously deluded wing.

Momentum: ‘We Proved Them Wrong… This Shows We Can Win Across the Country’

Hilarious email sent by Momentum to their supporters this morning under the subject line: “We proved them wrong”.

“The sceptics wrote us off in Stoke but we proved them wrong. We beat them with our energy, passion and determination.

The Tories may have taken Copeland, but I’ve seen everything we need to win across the country right here in Stoke these last few weeks.

If we build on the momentum from this win, we can beat UKIP and the Tories across the country.”

What are they smoking?

Top Momentum Fixer: Give Up On Parliamentary Socialism

A fascinating insight into the minds of the hard-left from Momentum fixer Max Shanly, protégé of Jon Lansman. Asked why Corbyn should remain as leader if he cannot win an election, Shanly opined:

“You’ve fallen into the trap of Parliamentary Socialism. We were never going to win in 2020 regardless of leader. Anyone with more than two brain cells should have drawn that conclusion from the exit poll in 2015. The democratic road to socialism is not the same as the parliamentary road.”

There you have it from an avowed Corbynista. Labour aren’t going to win a general election under Corbyn so they shouldn’t bother going down the parliamentary road…

McDonnell and Diane Abbott Want to “Take Back Control” of UKIP Areas

John McDonnell and Diane Abbott are to head to Sunderland and Barnsley as part of a new series of Labour events aiming to “Take Back Control” of “UKIP areas”. Momentum’s “The World Transformed” hipster Corbynistas will be travelling up to Sunderland in April to dispel the idea, in their words, that “every remain voter is part of a croissant munching metropolitan elite”. Subsequent events will be held in Barnsley, Bradford and Dagenham. Guido has checked and this is not a joke:

“John McDonnell, Clive Lewis, Rachael Maskell and Diane Abbott to speak at ‘Take Back Control’ events in UKIP areas. Take Back Control’ is a series of events about Brexit, the establishment and bringing power back to communities that will take place in marginal constituencies and those under threat from UKIP.”

They are really going to send John McDonnell and Diane Abbott to Sunderland to convince them they’re not “croissant munching” London elitists…

Revenge Porn Momentum Candidate Quits

A candidate in the Momentum elections has quit after Guido discovered he used to run a ‘revenge porn’ site posting leaked Snapchat photos. Yesterday Guido contacted Joshua Brandwood asking him if he still stood by his decision in 2013 to publish a series of private photos which had been screenshotted by users of the Snapchat app. Facebook closed Brandwood’s page finding it breached their guidelines on bullying and harassment. At the time he told the BBC: “It’s just for a laugh”. After being contacted by Guido, Brandwood tweeted a statement:

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I have withdrawn from Momentum’s Coordinator election.”

He remains a Labour councillor in Morecambe where he campaigns against “inequality and hate crimes”…

Momentum Candidate Glamour Photographer’s Sexy Snaps Masterclass

A top Corbynista standing for election as a regional chair of Momentum is a former glamour photographer who took thousands of sexy snaps and recommended models with “perfect body statistics“. An hour-long video shows Southend Labour spokesman Mike Fieldhouse posing-up sultry models clad in stockings, corsets and thigh-high leather boots. During his instructional film Glamour Photography Masterclass With Mike Fieldhouse, the Corbyn cheerleader has a blonde woman pose suggestively across a motorbike, describing the scene as “good stuff“. Later he advises: “If you want top models you have pay top prices. What you’re paying for is sheer professionalism and perfect body statistics.” Fieldhouse describes himself on his website as “your local Labour Party spokesman” and states:

“By 2015 I had all but given up hope of seeing a fair and just society in the UK during my lifetime. That was until Jeremy Corbyn’s brilliant leadership campaign reignited my enthusiasm and belief that a party with truly socialist policies.”

He also claims to work “part-time for a charity, providing counselling to survivors of childhood sexual abuse and rape“. No doubt this revelation will go down brilliantly with his feminist comrades…

All Male Shortlist For Momentum Elections

Over on the Momentum website members are voting to elect their new regional chairs. There are 17 candidates. All 17 are men. They are: Lee Jasper (yes, that Lee Jasper), Sam Smith-Warren, Adrie Van Der Meer, Jamie Green, Mark Dale, Gary Wareing, Mike Fieldhouse, Phil Pope, Ian Pope, Andy Ives, Davey Ivens, Geoff Littlefield, John Talbut, John Taylor, Al Gonzalez, Alex Scott-Samuel and Joshua Brandwood. Brocialism in action…

H/T Exposing Momentum

New Momentum Chief on Copeland Selection Panel

The latest from Momentum: Jon Lansman has resigned as director of Momentum Campaign Services Ltd. He is certainly under pressure, last night he lost a vote on his purge of Trotskyists in his own local Momentum branch. Notable that he also dissolved New Hope for Labour Ltd, his data company, before Christmas. Labour sources doubt Lansman is taking a step back given he has waited 30 years to get to this position. His opponents claim he is freeing himself up to run for election to the new Momentum steering group. As one puts it, “About as meaningful as when Putin swapped the president’s role with the prime minister so he could stay in power.”

Lansman’s replacement as director of Momentum Campaign Services Ltd is his ally Christine Shawcroft, a mad lefty who was suspended by Labour for backing Lutfur Rahman and famously said British soldiers should invite ISIS round for cups of tea. Shawcroft is one of the four members of Labour’s selection panel for the Copeland by-election. The new head of Momentum will have a major say in their by-election candidate…

Momentum Trots Rush to Secure Data Before Purge

Far-left Facebook forums are a highly entertaining read this morning following the news of Jon Lansman’s plan to purge Trotskyists from Momentum. Josie Runswick, a Jill Mountford ally in the anti-Lansman faction, has ordered those likely to be expelled to secure their data and mailing lists before they lose access:

Sacha Ismail from the Alliance of Workers Liberty, a Trotskyist group which had been plotting against Lansman, says the purge is: “Unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything quite like this in my time on the left”. Nick Wrack from Left Unity, another entryist group facing expulsion, says: “I am staggered. It has to rank as one of the most undemocratic manoeuvres in the history of the British left – and that is saying something”. Jackie Walker has taken time out from sharing Al-Jazeera’s Israel conspiracies to declare that Momentum is now “a leftie version of Progress that will drift to the right”. Top entertainment. Once again the Stalinists plunge an ice pick into the Trots…

Momentum Spent Thousands to Gain 0.4% Votes

Momentum have spent thousands on Facebook advertising to recruit supporters to Unite to vote for Len McCluskey in the union’s forthcoming election. People in the know estimate well over £10,000 was spent…

The Guardian reports that just an

“extra 659 people joined as community members in December compared with the previous month, part or all of which may be the result of the campaign group asking its supporters to join Unite to vote to keep McCluskey, a key ally of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Owen Jones’ Trotskyist Journey

In August Owen Jones blasted Tom Watson for saying Momentum is ridden with Trots:

“The political significance of British Trotskyism is minimal… in the grand scheme of things, they are just irrelevant… There are too few Trotskyist activists to have any decisive impact on a party as big as Labour now is.”

Then in September Owen attacked Channel 4 for their exposé on Momentum Trots, saying the group have been:

“demonised by the media as a sinister rabble of Trotskyist infiltrators… Rather than being led by revolutionary disciples of Leon Trotsky, most of Momentum’s leaders aren’t really ideologues of any sort”

Today Owen says – wait for it – Momentum is ridden with Trotskyist entryists![…] Read the rest

Top Momentum Fixer’s Steven Woolfe Slur

Max Shanly, the top Momentum fixer who was made famous by Dispatches, said yesterday that he hoped Steven Woolfe didn’t recover from his injuries. Shanly wrote the above post on a private group of young Labour members, calling Woolfe a “fascist” and blasting others for sending him messages of goodwill.[…] Read the rest
