The “gutter level” accusations of alleged “abuse” by Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters “in his name” have all but disappeared from the mainstream media! The other day John McDonnell was being “interrogated” on this issue by the BBC in one of their studios when he asked which camera he was on. He then took the “argument” right out of the hands and control of the host by directly speaking to the public, pointing towards the audience and stating “This has to stop, now!”. He went on to say that people were welcome to “come after” Jeremy or himself, but “leave those alone who cannot defend themselves”, and that abusers will be expelled from the party! Basically, that has shut everybody up! (Well done John!)
Not only is it a £400,000 donor who wanted to take the NEC decision to allow Jeremy on the ballot (without a backing of 51 MPs) to court, but another, £500,000 “donor”, the owner of Hull City football club, tried to convince Parliamentary Labour MPs (the usual suspects now) to split the party and form a new party, right after Jeremy’s election as Leader last year. He met with at least four of them at the time, but THEY said they “wanted to wait for a year”, so he has brought the issue up again now, saying that he won’t even get behind Jeremy’s “challenger”, Owen Smith. THIS WAS NOT REPORTED BY THE BBC by the way!
Hmmmm! A RICH “Labour Party member” initiated the “vote of no confidence” previously; a RICH “Labour donor” has initiated a court case to get Jeremy off the ballot; and now another RICH “Labour donor” wants to split the party to form a “new” Labour group (sound familiar? = Blair!). And WHAT is it being used to try to control these events? – MONEY! And from ONLY 3 INDIVIDUALS (that we know of anyway)! “Democracy” anyone?
While in contrast, the Labour movement, under Jeremy Corbyn, has increased in registered membership to over a half a million , THE LARGEST POLITICAL PARTY IN ALL EUROPE, and it is expected to DOUBLE that after the Labour Leadership election if Jeremy wins! (Are you beginning to understand WHY the elites consider him such A THREAT, especially when he has contacts throughout ALL of the socialist movements throughout Europe, and the World)???
The “Tories” have ALWAYS been backed and supported by money, big business and the banks (and actually have the smallest party membership, as well as the slimmest of a “majority”, INHERITED by the PM (who was NOT elected by “the people”, only 199 people were responsible for THAT) from the former PM who “won” it in a non-representative electoral system called “first past the post”, AND in which they CHEATED by spending more than is legally allowed in their campaign in the marginal seats). In contrast the Labour Party has always been supported BY ITS MEMBERS and the unions, THE PEOPLE themselves (the ones who formed the Party at its conception – as a means to fight for “the rights of the people”, against their “bosses”!).
So, if RICH people are backing and were donating (and dictating) to the Blairite Labour Party and MPs, what should THAT tell you? And, which do YOU think would be fairer, as well as more open, honest and accountable to its following – “Bottom-up” TRUE democracy, or “top-down” elitist, tyrannical, “for profit” dictatorship??? The lines are clearly drawn don’t you think? They were “blurred” by Bliar, but “they are no longer methinks!”
Just in case it’s NOT clear, THIS “should clear it up”… 😀
AAANNNDDD… THIS, only briefy, appeared under a “minor headline” on the BBC’s website yesterday…
Labour leadership: MP ‘unresigns’ from Corbyn team
25 July 2016
Sarah Champion has not given any reasons for rejoining Mr Corbyn’s shadow ministerial team.
An MP who quit Labour’s front bench during a revolt against Jeremy Corbyn has been reinstated after asking for her old job back.
Sarah Champion, the MP for Rotherham, has retracted her resignation as shadow minister for preventing child abuse and domestic violence.
Ms Champion is on an overseas trip but her office confirmed that she had “retaken” her old job.
The BBC’s Norman Smith said it was an “extraordinary development”.
Ms Champion has not given any reason for wishing to return to Mr Corbyn’s team, shadowing the Home Office.
When she resigned from the front bench last month, Ms Champion insisted she was not taking part in an organised coup or “siding with anyone”, but she believed that his leadership had become untenable.
The BBC’s assistant political editor said Mr Corbyn’s advisers were “overjoyed” and said it raised the prospect of whether the MP was a one-off or whether others who had walked out of the Labour leader’s top team were now having second thoughts.
A source close to the Labour leader responded by saying: “You saw what happened when the first miners went back to work so let’s see what happens.”
Mr Corbyn is facing a leadership challenge from former work and pensions spokesman Owen Smith, having suffered a mass walkout from the shadow cabinet and lost a vote of confidence among his MPs by a massive margin.
Although Mr Corbyn filled the gaps in the shadow cabinet by appointing replacements, several politicians have had to double up by taking on two portfolios, while many middle-ranking and junior positions remain unfilled.
Owen Smith told BBC Newsnight Ms Champion was a friend of his and he understood why some colleagues felt they should be taking the fight to the Conservatives since most believed the government was “getting an easy ride” at present.
But he said her return was “neither here nor there”, and suggested that “one or two people” returning to the fold did not “really change the basic facts” that the party was torn down the middle, adding that 150 MPs “suddenly recovering confidence” in Mr Corbyn was unlikely.
😀 😀 😀
The only other predominant commentary I see on the net at the moment is Jeremy, Jeremy, Jeremy, – going everywhere and speaking on everything to everyone, personally!!!
Hmmmm! “Not a leader!” “Unelectable!” – Either his enemies are completely deluded, OR, more likely, they hope that that term will wear a groove in peoples’ brains and affect their judgment, eventually! So far however, the stronger their attacks, the stronger the support for Jeremy, and the stronger the resolve of the people to throw off the same old, same old BS! The people want CHANGE, REAL change! And with Jeremy they sense something more – HOPE!!!
