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?

Weapons-Grade Clusterf**k

Got to hand it to this government, who true to form have managed to turn the one positive narrative they’ve had in months into a total omnishambles. This incorrect FCO tweet from two weeks ago claiming Porton Down experts had determined the Novichok was made in Russia has been deleted. Whichever FCO mandarin who tried to disappear this tweet to cover up their incompetence has properly landed everyone else in it.

Russia was clearly responsible for the attack on the Skripals – as the Porton Down scientist said yesterday it had to be a state actor – and the intelligence obviously points to Russia. Yet Gary Aitkenhead’s interview was a total PR disaster, giving out the misleading top line that the government can’t be sure it was Russia. Why did the MoD let this broadcast novice in front of the cameras?

Just when May had succeeded in getting the international community on board – one of her best achievements to date – they have conjured doubt where there should be none. Russia is already taking full advantage, gleefully tweeting out the deleted FCO screengrab and making out the British government lied. Corbynistas are echoing the conspiratorial Kremlin line and claiming this proves Seumas and Corbyn were right all along. All the grown ups in Whitehall are on holiday as the UK’s position internationally becomes needlessly undermined. What a mess.

US and 14 EU Member States Agree to Expel Russian Diplomats

This has to be one of the most major foreign policy coups in years:

  • Trump has ordered the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the US
  • Germany and France to deport four Russian diplomats each
  • Total of 14 EU Member States agree to expel Russian diplomats
  • Ukraine is expelling 13 Russian diplomats
  • Czech Republic – 3
  • Lithuania – 3
  • Latvia – 1
  • Poland – 4

One of the biggest wins of the May premiership. And makes a mockery of those claims the UK would be isolated internationally if we voted to Leave the EU. What will all those Boris-haters in the media have to say about this huge FCO diplomatic success?

Corbyn: I Would Do Business With Putin and Send Russia Novichok Samples

Jeremy Corbyn has told Wato: “Would I do business with Putin? Sure.” and repeated his call to give Russia a sample of the Novichok used on the Skripals. He again stopped short of blaming the Kremlin. When Russia say it isn’t their Novichok, is Corbyn going to believe them?

Ex-Kremlin Adviser: Corbyn Was Right

Former Kremlin adviser and all-round nutjob Alexander Nekrassov tells Good Morning Britain “Jeremy Corbyn was right”. He even says there is no evidence the Skripals were even attacked. As if further proof were needed that Jezza and Seumas are Russia’s not-very useful idiots…
