Was protester who egged Margaret Thatcher statue just the first of many?

Hanged in effigy: how many people wished the statue’s head would snap off after a rope was strung around its neck in order to allow a crane to place it on its plinth?

We now know that the man who threw eggs at Grantham’s new statue of Margaret Thatcher was an arts centre deputy director who lives on the street where she was born.

According to Metro, Jeremy Webster proclaimed that he was “the first egg thrower” on social media shortly after doing it.

But the paper’s claim that the 59-year-old made a “call to arms” may have been exaggerated. He had tweeted, “Grantham unveils Thatcher statue, so guess where we are going?” That could have referred simply to himself and his partner, who filmed the egging.

The Telegraph also claimed that he put up a now-deleted post on Instagram which said: “South Wales miners are heading up to Grantham to remove her head.”

It is certainly known that the statue is a target for vandals:

After a large-scale £100,000 unveiling ceremony was approved by South Kesteven District Council in 2020, a Facebook group proposed an ‘egg-throwing contest’ at the event.

More than 2,400 people confirmed they would take part in ‘egg throwing’ and ‘potentially graffiti art’.

As a result of the warning, the council installed a CCTV camera directly opposite the statue.

Call it a hunch, but This Writer doesn’t think CCTV is going to stop anybody from expressing themselves.

Starmer is trying to change history by blaming Corbyn for Labour cash crisis

Lie: Keir Starmer wants you to think previous Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn ruined Labour’s finances when he did it himself. Is the look on his face, here, his version of “duper’s delight”?

Keir Starmer is resorting to Nazi propaganda tactics to blacken the name of his immediate forerunner as Labour leader – but it won’t work.

Starmer’s chosen ploy is known as “The Big Lie” – repeating a known falsehood time and again until a majority of people come to believe it. The lie in this case is that Jeremy Corbyn caused Labour’s funding crisis.

When Mr Corbyn’s term as party leader ended, Labour had £13 million in the bank – and that was after running an expensive general election campaign in 2019.

Starmer squandered this money – most prominently on silly legal battles connected with his fabrications of anti-Semitism among party members.

We know this, but it seems the current Labour leader is hoping that if he keeps reviving his lie, people will start to believe him.

To boost his lie, it seems Starmer is now saying Corbyn torpedoed Labour’s finances by turning away rich donors.

But he should know that a lie won’t be strengthened with another lie – and the new claim isn’t true either:

Lies like this make Labour unelectable.

We already have a government headed by a man who is on the record saying he lies – and blunders – so often because he hopes people will forget the last one when the next one happens.

We don’t need to replace it with a government headed by another liar, which is what Starmer is.

The UK needs a government of integrity, led by individuals who genuinely want to build prosperity for the majority of citizens.

We won’t get it under Keir Starmer.

Wes Streeting admits he didn’t support Jeremy Corbyn

Wes Streeting: did he betray the Labour Party by failing to support Jeremy Corbyn in the 2019 UK general election? And if so, why hasn’t he been expelled from the Labour Party?

“That’s news to Jeremy Corbyn!” says Wes Streeting on being told he supported the former Labour leader in the UK’s 2019 general election.

But aren’t ALL Labour members required to support the party and its leader in elections?

Haven’t members been expelled for failing to do so, or for speaking out that they would not/did not?

Shouldn’t Streeting receive the same treatment?

Tom Watson: what an absolute, reality-bending t*t

Tom Watson: his latest outburst suggests he is out of touch with reality.

Does anybody remember the deputy leader of the Labour Party when it was led by Jeremy Corbyn? His name was Tom Watson and he was a right-wing obstacle.

Like many of the people who tried to get in Mr Corbyn’s way, he pretended he was on-side (sometimes). In hindsight, we could say that he said whatever he thought was to his advantage.

So it may come as no surprise to you that Watson is continuing in similar vein, now he is out of the spotlight. Maybe he thinks this will bring him some attention again.

In his newsletter (yes, I was surprised too), he has written some reality-bending tripe, as spotted by Kevin Schofield, below:

For clarity: Jeremy Corbyn never embraced factionalism; he wanted Labour to present a united front but right wing factionalists like Watson wouldn’t have it. They did everything they could to split the party because, contrary to the description of Labour on the back of their membership cards, they were – and remain – neither socialist nor democratic.

For clarity: Jeremy Corbyn has never “given succour” to Vladimir Putin. So supporters of Mr Corbyn – people we might describe as “true Labour” – don’t have to go “contorting themselves” in any way. Indeed, it is Watson who is trying to take us through contortions in order to present this twisted impression of his former leader.

Let’s have a quick look at Mr Corbyn’s record:

@thejeremycorbyn

Some of us have never supported Putin.

♬ original sound – Jeremy Corbyn

Here’s some further evidence of Mr Corbyn’s historical (and current) opposition to Putin:

For those who can’t read images very well:

2008: Mr Corbyn asserted that Putin was rigging elections.

2010: Mr Corbyn called for Putin’s UK assets to be frozen.

2012: Mr Corbyn called for a “Magnitsky” Act against Putin’s Russia. It would have sanctioned those it sees as human rights offenders, frozen their assets, and banned them from entering the UK.

2012: Mr Corbyn called for the Russian Arms Corps to be banned.

2016: Mr Corbyn accused Putin of war crimes in Syria.

2022: Mr Corbyn demanded that Putin withdraw Russian troops from Ukraine and end the humanitarian catastrophe there.

Oh, and he had a few things to say about the attempted murder by nerve agent of Sergei and Julia Skripal in 2018, too:

On Putin, Mr Corbyn’s conscience – and that of those of us who support him – should be clear.

And for clarity: there were occasions when Watson certainly appeared to support Jeremy Corbyn’s bid to lead our country:

If he is now saying Mr Corbyn was “never” fit to do so, then it casts (more?) doubt on his behaviour as Labour’s deputy leader.

A few years ago, a leaked Labour report (allegedly?) showed right-wingers in the party conspiring to prevent it from winning a general election by giving the impression that it was full of anti-Semites (among other things). The findings of the inquiry into the veracity of that report – promised in mid-2020 – have yet to be released.

Do you think this makes the revelations in that report less plausible – or more so?

#KeirStarmer wrong about #JeremyCorbyn AGAIN in #StopTheWar squabble

Facepalm: Jeremy Corbyn would be right to be embarrassed by the warmongering stupidity of his Labour leadership successor.

If Keir Starmer had any self-awareness at all, he’d die of embarrassment.

It’s only 12 days since he reportedly attacked Jeremy Corbyn over his membership of the Stop the War Coalition:

Keir Starmer has lashed out at Jeremy Corbyn insisting he was “wrong” on Nato.

Mr Starmer … launched a fierce attack on the Stop the War coalition, in which Mr Corbyn is a leading figure, accusing it of siding with Russia against Nato.

In an opinion article for the Guardian, he described the group as “naive” at best before adding Putin’s regime would see the group as “virtue signallers” who were “providing a smokescreen so it can go on beating up and jailing those brave individuals that dare to stand up to its despotism on the streets of Russia”.

This is the same Keir Starmer who stood up in Parliament to bang the jingo drum against Russia, demanding stronger action than Boris Johnson had proposed in a speech that all-but-egged the prime minister on to push the nuclear button (that he can’t do anyway without Joe Biden’s permission).

I’ve got the video somewhere; I’ll try to post it. It’s a thing to see.

But now consider the response to Russia’s incursion into Ukraine by the very same Stop the War Coalition, which makes more sense than he did in his entire speech:

Stop the War condemns the movement of Russian forces into eastern Ukraine and urges that they immediately withdraw, alongside the resumption of diplomatic negotiations to resolve the crisis.

This dispute could and should be resolved peacefully, and that remains the only basis for a lasting settlement, rather than the imposition of military solutions.  That it has not been resolved is not, however, the responsibility of the Russian or Ukrainian governments alone.

The conflict is the product of thirty years of failed policies, including the expansion of NATO and US hegemony at the expense of other countries as well as major wars of aggression by the USA, Britain and other NATO powers which have undermined international law and the United Nations.

The British government has played a provocative role in the present crisis, talking up war, decrying diplomacy as appeasement and escalating arms supplies and military deployments to Eastern Europe.

If there is to be a return to diplomacy, as there should be, the British government should pledge to oppose any further eastward expansion of NATO and should encourage a return to the Minsk-2 agreement, already signed by both sides, by all parties as a basis for ending the crisis in relations between Ukraine and Russia.

Beyond that, there now needs to be a unified effort to develop pan-European security arrangements which meet the needs of all states, something that should have been done when the Warsaw Pact was wound up at the end of the Cold War.  The alternative is endless great power conflict with all the attendant waste of resources and danger of bloodshed and destruction.

We send our solidarity to all those campaigning for an end to the war, often under very difficult conditions, in Russia and Ukraine.  Stop the War can best support them by demanding a change in Britain’s own policy, which can be seen to have failed.

If police say Johnson attended #DowningStreetParties he must quit, says government’s former top lawyer

Boris Johnson: “Drunk? At a party? Me? How would anybody know the difference?”

Should we be grateful to former Tory attorney-general Jeremy Wright for reminding us that, if Boris Johnson is found to have attended or known about rule-breaking No 10 parties, he’ll have to resign?

This Writer reckons so; it’s important to keep the facts in mind because otherwise, one of Johnson’s cronies will slither in and pretend they’re different – which is what they’re trying to do.

Mr Wright’s reminder is that Johnson will have no escape route, because he will have misled Parliament when he said no rules were broken.

Meanwhile, here comes Johnson’s personal lawyer to claim – desperately – that – even if he attended gatherings found to be illegal parties – he broke no rules if he went back to work immediately afterwards and did not drink excessively.

The biggest problem with this argument is that it is clearly nonsense. If he drank anything at all, or came into contact with anyone at all in a social setting, then he broke the rules.

Mr Wright’s test of culpability is much simpler – and therefore, far more believable. In a letter to his own constituents, he states:

“If the prime minister has attended events he knew broke the rules, or was aware of events he knew broke the rules, he should not have advised the House of Commons, on several occasions, that as far as he was aware, no rules were broken there.

“Doing so in those circumstances would be misleading the House and must in my view lead to his resignation or removal from office.”

That’s good to know, at a time when Johnson is expected to receive a fixed-penalty notice from the Metropolitan Police – for attending rule-breaking parties at 10 Downing Street.

#Corbyn smears: Don’t be fooled by this poisonous fake of a website

As figures in the Labour Party move to smear former leader Jeremy Corbyn and push him out, supporters need to be aware of more subtle attackers.

For example: the “Project for Peace and Justice” website at https://projectforpeaceandjustice.com that attempts to satirise Mr Corbyn’s new organisation with smears that are neither accurate nor amusing.

The current version of this page offers a foul-mouthed tribute (if you can call it that) to the late Peter Newbon, a leading light of the pressure group Labour Against Anti-Semitism who brought it into disrepute by publishing a doctored image showing Mr Corbyn apparently reading anti-Semitic hate book The Protocols of the Elders of Zion to schoolchildren. In fact he was reading Michael Rosen’s We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. Rosen’s entirely justified response to this abuse appears on the page, where he is described using a four-letter word beginning with ‘C’. Accurate? No. Amusing? No.

Another page attacks two campaigners who have demonstrated repeatedly that the current hysteria over anti-Semitism in the Labour Party is nothing more than a witch-hunt. It describes a fictional “Greenstein” award (named after Tony Greenstein) for services to anti-Semitism on social media being given to Simon Maginn for his #ItWasAScam campaign? Accurate? No. Amusing? No.

The indicia at the bottom of every page includes the message: “The Project for Peace and Justice does not adhere to the IHRA definition of antisemitism. I didn’t want to do this Laura made me” – an apparent claim that the site is operated by Mr Corbyn himself after his wife Laura demanded it. Accurate? No. Amusing? No.

Possibly the worst aspect of this is the call for donations that appears immediately whenever anybody visits the site. It doesn’t work – clicking to donate says it can’t be done – and this may put people who genuinely want to donate to the Corbyn Peace and Justice Project off doing so.

You can see this travesty yourself – if you’ve got the stomach for it – by visiting the website at the link above. But your time would be far better-used by visiting the genuine Peace and Justice Project site at https://thecorbynproject.com where you can learn about the four main projects: climate justice, economic security, democratic society and international justice – and may donate by using the proper system for doing so. This one does work.

Considering the hatred for Mr Corbyn and the concentration on fake accusations of anti-Semitism against people who have done nothing more than campaign for accuracy, This Writer wonders whether the fake site was set up by the former Labour leader’s critics on the right wing of that party.

It would seem reasonable, considering the fact that right-wingers like Steve Reed are now admitting their involvement in the creation of pressure groups like the Centre for Countering Digital Hate, that has been found also to be involved in spreading such hate against figures like Mr Corbyn, to question whether right-wing Labour members are also behind the fake “Peace and Justice” website.

If so, it makes a mockery of their claim to be crusading against fake news.

But while it is important to be aware of these fakers and their lies, the best thing to do is simply to ignore them.

StarmerLabour launches new smear campaign against Jeremy Corbyn – and it is VERY shady

Backstabbers? Steve Reed attacked Jeremy Corbyn in the Mirror, as The Times suggested Keir Starmer would try to push Corbyn out of the Labour Party by whatever means necessary.

News moves fast. When This Writer published an article speculating on Keir Starmer possibly planning to dishonestly push Jeremy Corbyn out of Labour, it seems the party leader had already put this into action.

In a Mirror interview, new shadow justice secretary Steve Reed put out a claim that Labour “cared more about criminals than their victims” under Jeremy Corbyn. He said:

“Given the period that Labour’s gone through over the last 10 years, but particularly under the last leadership – the days when Labour cared more about the criminals than about their victims are well and truly over.”

Mr Reed said rehabilitation and tackling the causes of crime are essential. But he added: “I think when Jeremy Corbyn was the leader, we gave the impression that we were more concerned about the criminals than about their victims.

Let’s put the record straight: Jeremy Corbyn saw the Conservatives as being the party that was soft on crime – as has every Labour leadership since Tony Blair. Consider Skwawkbox‘s reaction to Reed’s smear:

Leaving aside the obvious, that rehabilitating criminals makes us all safer, the claims are an outright falsehood. Labour’s 2019 manifesto was clear on the need for a strong justice system, promising to:

• end short prison sentences
• recruit and fund 5,000 more prison officers
• recruit and fund 10,000 more police officers
• recruit and fund 1,000 more border guards

It does seem strange that Reed tries to say Mr Corbyn’s plan to do that means he “cared more about criminals”, while at the same time saying rehabilitation of criminals is useful.

A bit hypocritical, perhaps?

But then, Reed himself says – and seems proud of it – that he helped set up the Centre for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) which (while it has successfully campaigned for the removal of some genuinely poisonous individuals from the social media) is best-known as a highly-politicised pressure group that targets left-wing websites with vicious campaigns.

We’ve known of CCDH’s behaviour – and its origin as a creation of right-wing Labour to smear the left – for more than a year.

The organisation lists as its “ambassador” – and she has been described as its only patron in the past – Rachel Riley. This backfired badly against it when she announced she was supporting its “Don’t Feed The Trolls” campaign in 2019.

My CrowdJustice site, raising money to defend me against libel claims by Riley, suddenly enjoyed an unexpected windfall from people reacting against what they saw as the TV host’s hypocrisy.

Just read some of the comments in the article linked above and you’ll see clear evidence.

So not only is Reed smearing Corbyn with a false claim about his attitude to crime, but he is associated with an organisation whose patron has habitually smeared Corbyn with unsupported accusations.

If this is how Keir Starmer hopes to undermine support for his immediate forerunner as Labour leader, he’ll deserve the massive backlash that I expect to see him suffer.

Is Starmer dishonestly planning to push Jeremy Corbyn out of Labour?

Starmer and Corbyn: one of them is constantly accused of acting inappropriately as leader of the Labour Party – the other IS Labour leader and ACTUALLY acts inappropriately. That is why this story has the ring of truth.

Interesting lines in The Sunday Times:

The claim is clear: despite the fact that there is no mechanism to remove Jeremy Corbyn from his position as Labour MP – and candidate – for Islington North, Keir Starmer intends to find a way to remove him before the next general election.

Mr Corbyn has done nothing wrong. He has no reason to apologise for his conduct.

So any attempt to remove him will be contrary to party rules and therefore an act of corruption.

This won’t necessarily stop Starmer, as there have been plenty of other corruptions of the rules in Labour’s recent history.

Some will say this is a good reason for Mr Corbyn to quit Labour before he is pushed.

This Writer disagrees.

If Mr Corbyn says right where he is, then anything Starmer does to remove him will receive close public scrutiny.

Considering the options open to him, it seems likely that Starmer will bring about his own downfall by being seen to do wrong.

Apology for #KeirStarmer over #JimmySavile slur? Where’s HIS apology to #JeremyCorbyn?

Johnson and Starmer: Johnson’s jibe about Jimmy Savile was wrong – but Starmer would be a hypocrite to demand an apology while he continues to make false accusations against Jeremy Corbyn.

Boris Johnson was under pressure today to apologise to Keir Starmer for claiming that the Labour leader refused to prosecute child abuser Jimmy Savile when he was Director of Public Prosecutions.

It would be absolutely right for Johnson to do so; there is no evidence that Starmer had anything to do with that wrong decision, as those who were present at the time acknowledge:

However, some are saying it is poetic justice that Starmer is getting some of his own medicine after he has spent more than a year lying about former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

They say – rightly, in This Writer’s opinion – that Starmer should only receive any apology from Johnson after he has apologised for the years of false accusations of anti-Semitism and support for terrorism that have been wrongly heaped on Mr Corbyn by himself and others within Labour.

It would be hypocrisy for him – and his supporters – to demand amends for an offence that they themselves merrily continue to commit against someone else.
