The Corbyn experiment results in civil war inside Labour

By selecting an utter fool and complete anti-West commie as leader, Labour has set themselves up for failure.

Open civil war has erupted inside Labour after Jeremy Corbyn’s latest gaffe over Syria.

Labour is at war today after Jeremy Corbyn’s own shadow cabinet threatened to resign en masse unless he backs the Prime Minister’s plans to bomb ISIS in Syria.

Frontbenchers accused their leader of being ‘fundamentally dishonest’ and treating them ‘with contempt’ after he refused to agree to more airstrikes – despite saying the party would take a ‘collective decision’.

Mr Corbyn, a former chairman of the Stop The War Coalition, may now face a mass walkout – or a coup – by refusing a free vote and trying to force Labour MPs to back his anti-war stance.

As two former ministers called on Mr Corbyn to resign after just two months in charge, shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn said today there is a ‘compelling case’ for war but would not resign in protest.

If Mr Benn voted for military action against a whip imposed by Mr Corbyn, the Labour leader would have little choice but to sack him and anyone else who did the same.

The row stems from an angry shadow cabinet meeting last night where the majority of the frontbench team backed the Prime Minister.    Read more »

Corbyn forced into u-turn on terrorism by his own party

Jeremy Corbyn is a terrorist enabler and friend to them as well. He is on record as complaining that it was wrong to kill Jihadi John and the UK should have arrested him for a fair trial.

Just two days ago he was declaring that the Police must not shoot to kill suspected terrorists, claiming shoot to kill is ‘dangerous, counter-productive’.

Now his front bench have defied him forcing a u-turn.

Jeremy Corbyn was humiliated in the Commons today as his own MPs lined up to condemn him and his supporters as apologists for terrorists.

The Labour leader was left isolated on the frontbench as MPs rushed to praise David Cameron’s response to the Paris attacks.

Senior Labour backbenchers including Chuka Umunna, Emma Reynolds and Ian Austin took swipes at their leader over an interview in which he opposed police shooting to kill terrorists and his links to a group which said western intervention in the Middle East was to blame for the atrocity in the French capital.

The Labour leader sparked a furious row last night after saying he was ‘not happy’ about armed officers and special forces having an order to kill fanatics to bring an atrocity to an end.

He also suggested that part of the responsibility for the Paris attacks lies with Britain’s military interventions in the Middle East.

‘We have created a situation where some of these forces have grown,’ he told the BBC yesterday.

It comes amid a growing row over plans for the Labour leader to be the star turn at a Christmas fundraiser for the Stop The War coalition which claimed on Saturday that Paris ‘reaps the whirlwind of western support for extremist violence in Middle East’.

Corbyn says Jihadi John should have been arrested not bombed

Jeremy Corbyn is such a womble. He reckons that a constable should have gone along and asked Mr Jihadi John to come down to the station for some questioning instead of copping a drone strike.

David Cameron of course says otherwise.

Jeremy Corbyn has been ridiculed by one of his own MPs after saying it would have been ‘far better’ to capture Jihadi John alive – as David Cameron insisted killing him was the ‘right thing to do’.

The Labour leader said Mohammed Emwazi – who Pentagon officials are ’99 per cent’ sure was ‘evaporated’ in a US drone attack – should have been arrested and held to account in a court of law.

But he was mocked almost immediately by Labour MP Ian Austin, a former aide to Gordon Brown, who tweeted ‘I’m sure he’d have come quietly’.

In contrast to Mr Corbyn’s stance, news of Emwazi’s reported demise was welcomed by the Prime Minister.

Mr Cameron branded the world’s most wanted man a ‘barbaric murderer’ and called the targeted strike an ‘act of self defence’ because he remained a threat to innocent people, including Britons.

He also went on to say that Emwazi had ‘killed many, many, Muslims’ and ‘was intent on murdering many more people.’

The militant executioner is believed to be responsible for the deaths of several ISIS hostages, including Britons Alan Henning and David Haines.    Read more »

UK Labour broke, but Corbyn thinks a few sausage sizzles will raise millions

UK Labour is broke, despite their union backed hard left election of Jeremy Corbyn.

They are head scratching as to how they can raise millions for the coming election.

Senior Labour figures had their heads in their hands when they met Jeremy Corbyn to discuss how to raise the millions of pounds needed to fight the next Election. 

‘How about raffles?’ asked Jezza. ‘Come again?’ his gobsmacked guests replied en masse. 

‘In my constituency we have raised up to £900 at raffles.’ 

One Labour official muttered to his neighbour: ‘Did I dream that or did he just say raffles?’ 

Neighbour: ‘You weren’t dreaming. It’s a nightmare – and it’s true.’

Not at all like our Labour

Here in New Zealand Labour mounted a campaign on housing attacking people with chinky sounding names. They were rightly attacked for it.

In the UK though, Labour are the opposite, calling on the government to halt a bill where landlords would be able to discriminate against people with woggy sounding names.

New checks on the immigration status of tenants risk becoming the modern equivalent of infamous “no dogs, no blacks, no Irish” signs. Research shows that some landlords are reluctant to let to people with foreign-sounding names or accents, shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham has warned.

Mr Burnham is calling on Home Secretary Theresa May to drop a key measure in the Immigration Bill, which returns to the Commons this week, for landlords to carry out rigorous checks on the status of their tenants, known as the Right to Rent scheme. It follows a survey carried out by the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) which found that 42 per cent of landlords said Right to Rent made them less likely to let a property to someone who does not have a British passport, while 27 per cent said they were even reluctant to engage with people who had foreign-sounding names or accents.

In an article for The Independent on Sunday, the shadow Home Secretary said the scheme flies in the face of David Cameron’s “compassionate Conservatism” speech to his conference last week, in which he raised the problem of job applicants with “white-sounding names” who were nearly twice as likely to get call backs for jobs than people with “ethnic-sounding names”, even if they had the same qualifications.     Read more »

How Twitter has wrecked the left wing

One of these days Labour will get it and who knows maybe even the Media Party might figure it out too.

Twitter has turned left-wing Labour supporters into a ‘digital mob’ out of touch with the rest of the country, the party’s Tristram Hunt will warn today.

In a major speech, the former shadow education secretary will say Labour has ‘marched decisively away from the views of the voters’ since losing in 2010 – driven in large part by social media.

Mr Hunt’s warning comes after David Cameron used his party conference speech on Wednesday to ridicule Labour MPs for failing to understand the public mood because they spent so much time talking to each other on social media.

The Prime Minister said: ‘The vast majority of people aren’t obsessives, arguing at the extremes of the debate. Let me put it as simply as I can: Britain and Twitter are not the same thing.’

Mr Hunt, a Blairite MP who has refused to serve under Jeremy Corbyn, will today warn that left’s use of Twitter and Facebook meant it was losing touch with ordinary voters.

In a damning passage Mr Hunt warns left-wing activists that if social media was ‘significantly growing the number of people engaged in politics… rather than confirming pre-held bias, then Ed Miliband might now be sitting in 10 Downing Street’.

Mr Hunt is expected to say: ‘What people say to each other on the internet – and social media in particular – rewards strong, polarising opinions and primary coloured politics.

‘Far from broadening the mind through access to the greatest library human beings have ever created, people’s experience of the internet is increasingly a narrow online world where anyone who puts their heads above the parapet can be the target of an anonymised digital mob.’    Read more »

‘I didn’t get into Parliament to be a bit of f***ing arm candy’

Now this is interesting, and I’ll tell you why after you’ve read this

Female Tory MPs are apparently outraged at being lined up as ‘arm candy’ to walk alongside Prime Minister David Cameron at this year’s party conference.

According to The Spectator, there are a number of predominantly new female MPs who have been told to stand and walk alongside the Prime Minister as he makes his way between events at this year’s Tory conference in Manchester.

Some of the women are said to be unhappy with the arrangement, which is said to have become apparent when the special rota on who will accompany Mr Cameron on his visits was published among the team.

Mr Cameron has long tried to shake off the Conservative party’s ‘pale, male and stale’ image.

He has also long suffered from a problem connecting with female voters, not helped by his own crass behaviour at times.

Gaffes such as publicly dismissing the Tory MP Nadine Dorries as ‘frustrated’, and telling a Labour shadow minister to ‘Calm down, dear’ during PMQs have hardly boosted his appeal. Read more »

Sanctimonious hypocrite finally admits he was wrong

Paul David Hewson aka Bono Vox has been a sanctimonious hypocrite almost his entire life, certainly since he got fame and wealth and decided to lecture us all.

Well he has finally got a hold of senses and woken up.

He has spent years haranguing governments to increase public spending on aid, claiming it would end world poverty.

But Bono has finally changed his tune, admitting that the way to solving extreme poverty is through trade rather than aid.

In a remarkable turnaround, the rock star has told business leaders it is the private sector that holds the key.

The U2 singer, whose real name is Paul Hewson, was instrumental in persuading politicians including David Cameron to pledge to spend 0.7 per cent of the country’s income on aid.

But speaking at a UN aid conference in New York, Bono acknowledged that the private sector has a bigger role to play in development than governments.

Addressing business leaders, he said: ‘I’m late to realising that it’s you guys, it’s the private sector, it’s commerce that’s going to take the majority of people out of extreme poverty. And, as an activist, I almost found that hard to say.’   Read more »


Just answer the question John, Have you ever shagged a pig?

It is a question I’ve always wanted to ask a politician. Have you ever shagged a pig?

Quickly followed by, and if yes, did the pig enjoy it?

Following allegations British Prime Minister David Cameron put “a private part of his anatomy” in a dead pig’s mouth while he was at uni, many leaders have their student days on the mind.

Asked if there were any stories from his University of Canterbury days he wouldn’t like to get out, our own John Key had a response at the ready.

“I was in the Chunder Mile once, but nothing there you would really want to show footage of,” he said.

“It wasn’t my finest moment.”    Read more »

Delingpole on Cameron

It wasn’t just pig shagging that David Cameron got up to at university, according to James Delingpole they consumed quite a bit of weed too.

Thirty years on I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I remember that the charming, likeable, not very political bloke called Dave I used to smoke dope with is now the leader of one of the world’s most powerful nations.

But what I find even more surprising is that anyone should find it remotely odd that the Prime Minister of Great Britain should have dabbled in drugs in his youth.

Personally, I’d find it a lot more worrying if we had a Prime Minister of his generation who hadn’t smoked the odd spliff in his time. Politicians are so tame and career-safe, nowadays. We could do with a few with a bit of hinterland.

Noel Gallagher of Oasis was quite right a few years later when he said that taking drugs “like getting up and having a cup of tea in the morning.”

It certainly was for at least some of us at Oxford in the mid-Eighties.

Not all of us though, it must be said. If Dave and I had gone up to Oxford just a couple of years later, we would have found a university awash with class A drugs. By then Rave Culture had exploded and suddenly everyone was doing Ecstasy and Cocaine. But when we were there, drug-taking was still a minority pursuit.    Read more »
