Former MI6 Chief “Troubled” by Corbyn

Former chief of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove says he is “troubled” by Jeremy Corbyn’s past associations:

“I think someone coming from my background is troubled by Jeremy Corbyn’s past associations, some of which I find surprising and worrying… He has enthusiastically associated himself with groups and interests which I would not say were the friends of the British nation…

“I’m expressing concerns about him and his political past which I think are pretty extensively shared by a lot of people.”

He’s not the only one to have concerns about Agent COB…

Marr’s Brutal Interview

 

Full credit to Andrew Marr who, after last week asking Jeremy Corbyn to his face if he was an anti-semite, just accused Theresa May of personal responsibility for the death of a 67 year-old Windrush scandal victim. It was a tough interview from the start where she noticeably failed to rule out further compromises beyond Chequers – five times. Watch the fade out at the end, no small talk.

Ruth Davidson Firmly Rejects Second EU Referendum

Leading Remainer Ruth Davidson has firmly rejected the possibility of a second EU referendum, saying she would be an “enormous hypocrite” for supporting one:

“When it comes to the possibility of re-running referendums, I would be an enormous hypocrite if I said ‘just because there was one that I had lost as a Remainer we should immediately re-run it’ when I’ve spent four years in Scotland saying that Nicola Sturgeon shouldn’t get another one on independence because that’s one that I won…”

Tory Remainers agitating for a second referendum could take a lesson from Ruth on what political principles look like…
