There are only a few days to go until the Chilcot Report is published, so we can expect attacks on Jeremy Corbyn to intensify.
(It is widely believed that Mr Corbyn will call for Tony Blair to be investigated for war crimes after the report is published, and Blairites will do anything – it seems – to prevent that from happening.)
One of the more successful such attacks last week involved the photo above – and commentators are still talking about it as if it was Mr Corbyn’s fault that a person wearing such an offensive T-shirt attended the rally in support of him in Parliament Square on Monday.
In fact, it was the fault of the 172 mutineers who had been supporting the vote of ‘no confidence’ against him that day.
With the details, here’s Craig Murray. Do not trust anything you see or hear if it denigrates Jeremy Corbyn – it was probably dreamed up by a Blairite PR goon.
On the face of it, the old gentleman has a message on a T shirt which, while we might understand it is calling for the deselection of Blairite MPs, uses intemperate language which can be interpreted as an incitement to violence.
But look again at that photo. The body language of everybody involved is somewhat strange.
That is because the lady on the right is Anna Phillips, full time employee of the Blairite pressure group Progress.
While the gentleman on the left is Lewis Parker, a professional “creative strategist and social media Guru”. Now if you wanted someone to think up a stunt like this and then get millions of people on social media to see it via J K Rowling etc, ask yourself this question. Of all the thousands of professions in this world, which profession is the precise profession whose major task is to invent and set up stunts like this one? Why, a “social media professional”. Is it not an amazing coincidence that one just happened to be going past, as Ms Anna Phillips has explained it, on the way to the pub?
And this only the day after every mainstream media outlet ran as headline news that Jeremy Corbyn was heckled at the Pride rally by a man who happened to see him, who amazingly happened to be another professional PR man, Tom Mauchline, who happens to work for the Blair/Alastair Campbell PR firm Portland Communications.
