Tories and ‘centrist’ hypocrites call for closure of fund to help Jeremy Corbyn fight legal battle

‘New’ Labour and old news: Ian Austin and John Mann

Fantasists who have spent years pretending Jeremy Corbyn was an anti-Semite are wailing in protest after a fund was set up to help him fight a legal battle.

The broadcaster John Ware, who was responsible for last year’s risible Panorama ‘documentary’, Is Labour Antisemitic, is suing Corbyn over comments made by the former Labour leader and the official party line on the film at the time.

In response – and after current Labour leader Keir Starmer went against legal advice provided to the party in order to reward former Labour apparatchiks who appeared in the film, Corbyn supporter Carole Morgan has set up a GoFundMe crowdfunding web page that has raised around a quarter of a million pounds at the time of writing.

Starmer has spent around £600,000 of Labour members’ subscription money on court costs and the payout to a group of so-called “whistleblowers” who said they were libelled by the party over their part in the Panorama show. We are told legal advice to the party was that their case would not stand up in court.

Ms Morgan’s hugely-popular crowdfunder has attracted attacks from the usual suspects.

Former Labour Party cuckoo Ian Austin has attacked the initiative, saying that Corbyn should give some of the money back because some of the contributors left anti-Semitic comments.

But this is childish nonsense; it would be poetic justice to use an anti-Semite’s money to protect an anti-racist.

And did Austin complain when £250,000 was raised to help right-wing Labour MPs (as he was at the time) to remove Corbyn from his position as Labour leader?

No he did not.

The hypocrisy is strong in this one…

… as it is in the “news” paper that ran the story:

In a related event, Lord John Mann – who used to be a Labour MP but joined the Tories in exchange for a peerage and unlimited opportunities to have a pop at Corbyn – has been attacking the former Labour leader over anti-Semitic tweets by a ‘grime’ performer called Wiley:

Anti-Corbyn camp followers took up the cry, attacking Corbyn’s supporters for being silent about it. Most of us had never heard of the person in question:

I tweeted about this myself:

It seems I sparked a round of agreement, as others chimed in to admit that they hadn’t heard of this Wiley fellow either:

And here’s the icing on the cake:

So it seems even Corbyn’s reply wasn’t real and Mann was getting het up over nothing.

Will he apologise?

      It’s a shame our two party system with it’s undemocratic first past the post voting would consign any new party to the dustbin. Until we get proportional representation I will stay in the Labour Party and fight to get it back.

        Good job the founders of the Labour Party (as opposed to today’s ‘Labour’ Party) didn’t think that way when they founded the aforementioned Labour Party in 1900. The ‘Labour’ Party is well past its sell-by date.

      SNP. No thanks we are in a totalitarian state as it is, why add more undemocratic PC idiocy to our present situation? Thanks for the offer though. Regards ☮️

    I posted a link to this article, ‘Tories and ‘centrist’ hypocrites call for closure of fund to help Jeremy Corbyn fight legal battle’, to another website a couple of days ago. This comment was added there (very slightly edited for clarity):

    Some of the less than desirable people who are behind John Ware, the independent broadcaster now suing Jeremy Corbyn.

    In April 2020, The Jewish Chronicle was acquired from the liquidators by a private consortium of political insiders, broadcasters and bankers, including John Woodcock, John Ware and Jonathan Kandel.

    (Note: John Woodcock former Blairite Labour MP who hated Corbyn and all his supporting members.)

    In a very recent article in the Financial Times, it is stated that consortium was led by Sir Robbie Gibb, the former Downing Street head of communications to Theresa May:

    The rival consortium is being fronted by former Downing Street head of communications Robbie Gibb, biographer William Shawcross, former Labour MP John Woodcock, Rabbi Jonathan Hughes of Radlett United Synagogue, and prominent broadcasters John Ware and Jonathan Sacerdoti. Also involved are Robert Swerling, corporate and institutional banking chief operating officer of Investec; Jonathan Kandel, a partner at Kirkland and Ellis; Tom Boltman, head of strategic initiatives at Kovrr; and Mark Joseph, the managing partner at EMK Capital.

      Good work. Joining all the dots and the picture can be seen. It’s very ugly. Thanks for the time and effort. ☮️
