Labour Should Lead by Example & Test Staff

Over the weekend Labour continued to blatantly take their lead from the Tony Blair playbook – though not quite as Skwawkbox believed. Their latest policy, from shadow justice secretary Steve Reed, is an attack on the limpwristed years under Corbyn during which Labour “cared more about criminals than victims”. To counteract this, their latest policy proposal involves “naming and shaming” recreational drug users…

Guido’s old enough to remember Shaun Bailey announcing a similar policy during his mayoral run, albeit less invasive without naming individuals. At the time Guido suggested Shaun should lead the way, testing all the boys and girls at Tory HQ first from Ben Elliot down to the interns – then publish the results. Labour is no different.

Labour Say Offshore Freeholds ‘Disgraceful’, Rent Their Own HQ From Offshore Trust

Labour have today gone hard on freeholds owned in offshore tax havens today, press releasing that 50,000 across the UK are under such arrangements. They neglect however to mention that among those 50,000 is their own Victoria Street HQ

Labour are thought to pay half a million pounds a year to rent their London headquarters. The money goes to a tax exempt property unit trust fund based offshore in Jersey. John McDonnell today said that “It’s disgraceful that so much control is being exercised over UK property by offshore companies based in tax havens.” When will he be making good on his 2017 pledge to ‘end dealings’ with Labour’s current landlord..?
