Momentum Chief Compares Company Bosses to “Child Molesters”

Gavin Barwell is not the only one deleting embarrassing tweets. Momentum supremo Jon Lansman last night deleted a tweet comparing company bosses to “child molesters”. The hard left big-hitter posted this quote from Marxist economist Chris Dillow:

“On Neoliberalism: Chris Dillow suggests “neoliberal bosses have something in common with child molesters. Both lack restraint in the pursuit of their own self-gratification in situations where they think they can get away with it.”

Seeing the millions of Brits who work at all levels of management as akin to child abusers. This is a glimpse of what hard-left “class-warriors” really think…

Dead-Eyed Williamson’s Chilling Denial of Momentum Bullying

Confronted with Claire Kober and Nora Mulready’s testimony of bullying at the hands of the hard left, Chris Williamson dismissed the claims: “It’s certainly not my experience.” Women’s experiences don’t count for Labour brocialists…

Momentum Force Out Another Council Leader

Bullying Momentum activists have forced out another council leader as their purge continues. Moderate Jon Clempner has resigned as leader of Harlow Council and today reveals he was forced out by the hard left. He also resigned as a councillor and from the Labour Party after being called a “neo-Nazi” by Corbynistas. He said in a statement today:

“There has been a lot of speculation about why I resigned as Leader of Harlow Council, as a Councillor, and subsequently as a member of the Labour Party… Those who follow my personal social media will know I did not react well to an active campaign against my leadership by a local Momentum organiser (which this individual denies, despite several independent witnesses), being called a neo-Nazi by some Corbyn t-shirt wearing person outside the Labour Party Conference, and events at a national level targeting Labour Councillors and Labour Councils that do not conform to the particular form of ideological purity that seems to have taken a grip of the party, and that will shortly culminate in the output of a party ‘democracy review’ to make Councillors more accountable to a small group of party members (and less to the actual electorate presumably). Councillors, unless formally endorsed by the privately owned company Momentum, seem to have replaced the Parliamentary Labour Party as the focus of the hard left’s ire…

He went on: “the Labour Party was becoming a deeply unpleasant place, I resigned from the Labour Party shortly after”.

A classic stitch-up by the hard left. Earlier this week Haringey Council leader Labour moderate Claire Kober quit over Momentum bullying. Two down, many more to go, comrades…

Momentum Claims Only a Tiny Fraction of the Hundreds of Thousands it Raised for the Election Were Spent on the Election

The first task facing Electoral Commission investigators probing Momentum will be to unravel the organisation’s complex structure. Guido has taken a look…

Momentum is an unincorporated association – it doesn’t own assets and doesn’t employ anyone, but has an estimated 30,000 paying supporters. It raised £580,000 in membership subs last year alone – and that’s not counting other donations. It’s this unincorporated association that was officially registered with the Electoral Commission as a non-party campaigner for the 2017 General Election (in electoral law these are called ‘third parties’). The address registered for Momentum with the Electoral Commission is the TSSA Union building in Euston. Despite having hundreds of thousands in income, this is the ‘Momentum’ that reported a total spend of just £38,742.54 across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland during the general election’s restricted spending period. That’s a tight £257.46 below the £39,000 limit for non-party campaigners, meaning an average spend of just £60 per constituency.

Momentum says it uses two limited companies to carry on its operations: Momentum Campaign (Services) Ltd (MCS) and Jeremy for Labour Ltd (JFL). JFL is controlled entirely by its sole director, Momentum supremo and founder Jon Lansman, and is registered to his luxury Shad Thames flat. JFL is where the asset value in Momentum really lies: it is the ‘data controller’ which legally owns a huge database of supporter contact details collected during “both of Jeremy’s leadership campaigns, through Momentum’s website and during its campaigns.” It also operates the Momentum website. It must control data used – and collected – during the General Election…

Meanwhile, MCS employs about 15 staff on behalf of the unincorporated association and is registered to yet another office in East London. These must be the paid staff who directly influenced and directed Momentum’s general election campaign activity. 

During the election campaign, Momentum boasted about both how much money it was making and how much money it was spending. Check out this fundraising pitch from Paul Mason (“we need money, a lot of it”), attached to a tweet on May 13, claiming Momentum had nearly raised £40,000 in an online crowdfunder:

Momentum raised £120,000 from the Crowdpac drive alone. Momentum is asking us to believe only a fraction of the hundreds of thousands it raised during the regulated period was spent on general election activities. Either it is lying to supporters about what they were going to do with their donations or it is lying to the Electoral Commission about how the donations were spent…

Momentum Claim They Only Spent £38,743 on Election

The Electoral Commission has today launched an investigation into Corbynista shock-troops Momentum to establish whether the group “breached campaign finance rules in relation to spending.” The questions the probe:

“Whether or not Momentum spent in excess of the spending limits for an unauthorised non-party campaigner in the UK Parliamentary general  election;
whether or not Momentum submitted a return that did not include accurate donation information and/or the required declaration stating that the donation return was complete and accurate; whether or not Momentum submitted a return that was not a complete statement of payments made in respect of controlled expenditure; whether or not Momentum submitted a return that did not include all invoices for payments of more than £200.”

Bob Posner, the Electoral Commission’s Director of Political Finance and Regulation and Legal Counsel, said:

“Momentum are a high profile active campaigning body. Questions over their compliance with the campaign finance rules at June’s general election risks causing harm to voters’ confidence in elections. There is significant public interest in us investigating Momentum to establish the facts in this matter and whether there have been any offences. Once complete, the Commission will decide whether any breaches have occurred and, if so, what further action may be appropriate, in line with its enforcement policy.” 

Momentum reported expenditure of £38,743. Guido said it back in November, that sounds impossibly low…

Momentum Plot to Treble Council Tax For 15,000 Households in Bristol

What does Corbynism mean in reality? Momentum supporters on Bristol council are plotting to treble council tax for over 15,000 households. The Bristol Post reports the Labour council there has a projected deficit of £108 million, and Momentum’s plan to balance the books is a 200% council tax rise for the most valuable 8% of properties. The remaining 92% of households would see an inflation-busting council tax increase of up to 5%.

Guido is told that this would be illegal under local government finance rules. With the return of loony lefty councils you can be sure of one thing: “Vote Labour, get higher taxes…”

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…

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.[…] Read the rest
