Brexit ‘Whistleblower’ Shahmir Sanni Appears on Putin’s State Propaganda Channel

Hapless Brexit ‘whistleblower’ Shahmir Sanni has been having a hard time getting anyone to listen to him for the last few months years outside of the tinfoil Cadwalladr-Jukes-Byline Twittersphere. After the BBC declined to run his comments about Dominic Cummings a couple of weeks ago, he’s now found a new outlet to vent on. Russia Today.

RT is the repeatedly sanctioned English-language propaganda channel of the person Carole believes is behind the whole of Brexit, Vladimir Putin. Carole has repeatedly pointed the finger of blame at RT itself, Guido wonders what she’ll have to say about it now her pet whistleblower is appearing on it. Her spider diagram is going to need to turn 4-dimensional to explain all of this…

Zoolander is appearing on the channel’s ‘Going Underground’ show at 11.30am to tell his story to Putin’s faithful, now that no-one else is paying him any attention. Funny how he doesn’t seem so concerned about Russia “infiltrating our democracy” now…

Just four days ago the confused Remain campaigner tweeted that he “will never support a Russian state-funded broadcaster”. What changed?

Taking money from the Kremlin to appear on Putin’s propaganda outlet is a funny way to get Russia to “leave me alone”. To coin a phrase, “the hypocrisy is unbelievable”. When the only place still taking your desperate attention seeking seriously is Putin’s state propaganda channel it’s probably time to find a new hobby…

UPDATE: The presenter has now tweeted that Shahmir wasn’t paid for his interview. Shilling for free! Vlad will be delighted…

Putin’s Fracking Green Puppets

Kremlin-backed Russia Today have been busy pushing Putin’s line on fracking, promoting green useful idiots to ensure that Europe remains reliant on Russian gas. The strategic interests of Russia make Putin and the Greens allies:

Natural gas has made fuel in America cheaper and greener, and more energy independent. Putin fears that if the UK were to follow the same path, energy prices would fall and his stranglehold on European supply would weaken,,,

Corbyn-Backed Candidate in Lewisham East is Russia Today and Press TV Pundit

Claudia Webbe, who is the new Corbyn and Unite-backed candidate in Lewisham East, is a regular pundit for the Russian and Iranian state television channels. Webbe, a former adviser to Ken Livingstone who defended him when he compared a Jewish journalist to a concentration camp guard, appeared on Russia Today as recently as last week. She has appeared on the infamous Kremlin propagandist Afshin Rattansi’s programme at least twice.

Guido has also found at least six appearances by Webbe on Press TV. She tells Guido she never accepted any money for the appearances, but says “I wish I’d known” she could claim a fee. Can’t think why she’s the choice of Corbyn’s office…

The previous Corbyn-backed candidate in Lewisham East was Phyll Opoku-Gymiah, who pulled out from the race after Guido revealed she compared Israel to the Nazis. Guido also revealed the Momentum-backed candidate, Sakina Sheikh, last week shared a platform with the extremist imam Shakeel Begg. Labour having real problems with their selection for Lewisham East…

Kremlin’s Corbynista Useful Idiots

Chris Williamson’s Russia Today interview is being broadcast on the Russian state news agency TASS this evening, complete with Russian subtitles. He argues the UK government is using the Skripal attack to distract from Brexit, which is literally a Kremlin line to take. Meanwhile Corbyn Twitter outrider Aaron Bastani says it could have been done by Israel:

Is it a full moon?

Ofcom Probing Salmond For Peddling Fake News

Ofcom has launched a probe into Alex Salmond’s new Russia Today show. The regulator will look into a series of tweets Salmond read out on his programme which were presented as comments from the public but turned out to be from fabricated or planted sources, as Guido reported at the time. One was sent from an account owned by an RT producer. An Ofcom spokeswoman said:

“We are investigating whether this programme breached our rules on due accuracy.”

Inevitable…
