Everything is Going to Be Alright

Across the political spectrum there seems to be a sense of pessimism. Left-wingers think the world is going to hell in a golf-cart because of Trump, centrists think the Labour Party is doomed because of Corbyn, or worse still because Corbyn might win. Centre-rightists are pessimistic because they fear Brexit will go very badly and the Conservative Party will be punished accordingly. Right-wingers fear May will mangle Brexit so badly Britain might as well stay in the EU. They are all worrying unnecessarily. Everything is going to be alright.In this age of fake news we exist in filter bubbles of our own making. Politically we are in a mass and social media created hyper-reality which ratchets reality to extremes. Algorithms reinforce hysterical reporting. Even supposedly evidence-based data journalists cherry pick data to make their point. Science reporting is bent towards uncontested axioms which are neither true nor in the spirit of scientific discovery. Nobody believes anything repor…

Latest Cadwalladr Conspiracy: Bots Behind Labour Anti-Semitism

Observer rent-a-conspiracy writer Carole Cadwalladr has stuck her foot in it yet again by incredibly suggesting that Anti-Semistism in the Labour Party is the product of paid Tory trolls and her favourite bogeymen Cambridge Analytica.She approvingly quote tweeted a conspiracy thread suggesting that Brandon Lewis has hired “a team of Tory trolls” and that recently suspended Labour members like Damien Enticott were just ‘hacked’.This thread was written by a Labour supporter who is backing Pete Willsman for Labour NEC, a figure even too toxic for the likes of Owen Jones and Matt Zarb-Cousin.Another brilliant piece of codswallop from Carole.The post Latest Cadwalladr Conspiracy: Bots Behind Labour Anti-Semitism appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

Two Questions For Labour to Answer on Pete Willsman

The Board of Deputies has two questions for Labour on the Pete Willsman scandal:Was Jeremy Corbyn there to hear Willsman? If so, what form did his professed ‘militant opposition’ to antisemitism take when he heard it?— Board of Deputies President (@BoDPres) July 31, 2018Was Jennie Formby there to hear what was said? If yes, why did she let Willsman off so lightly?— Board of Deputies President (@BoDPres) July 31, 2018Both Corbyn and Formby were present.The Jewish Labour Movement have resubmitted their complaint to the Labour Party, meaning Jennie Formby now has a second chance to get it right, get rid of Willsman and admit she screwed up. Not a great look at all ifCorbyn and Formby sat through Willsman’s rant about Jews, said and did nothing to oppose him, and then Formby failed to take any action…The post Two Questions For Labour to Answer on Pete Willsman appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

Momentum Purge More Councillors Amid Fresh Bullying Claims

Momentum have succeeded in deselecting three sitting councillors in Brighton and Hove, replacing them with Momentum candidates in time for next year’s local elections. Momentum has 2,000 local supporters in the area…Amongst those deselected was Anne Meadows, one of Brighton’s longest serving and most senior councillors, who responded to her deselection saying: “Momentum are operating within the Labour Party but have no real loyalty to the party and as you know I have suffered intimidation and abuse so they can deselect me and control the ward and the party.” Kinder, gentler…The post Momentum Purge More Councillors Amid Fresh Bullying Claims appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

JOHN McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, is said to be leading a Labour cabinet rebellion over Jeremy Corbyn’s handling of the party’s anti-Semitism crisis.

Morduant’s Tory Association Preparing for Leadership Contest

Penny Mordaunt’s Portsmouth North Conservative Association held their AGM last night. Even in the slow news days of recess this is not something that would usually be the subject of a report from Guido. However, the AGM minutes repay reading. The membership was advised that “we are preparing for a party leadership contest sometime in the next 12-18 months and we anticipate a General Election to follow.” Yikes!
Now it is an old trick to galvanise the membership into activity by making dire warnings of forthcoming elections – if it is a real fear you will see candidate selections being accelerated. Guido is not so sure that is happening much. On the other hand it seems nailed on speaking to Tories from all factions and from all corners of the country that there will be a leadership election next summer at the latest. Tory activists can read polls, that is why it is being officially minuted in constituency planning. May’s early retirement, possibly on health grounds, could come early…The …
