Labour is becoming a pit of lies. No wonder everybody is walking away

Sadiq Khan: the train is probably empty because no RMT driver would want to get on one with him in it.

Wasn’t this a desperately disappointing development from Sadiq Khan, just when Tube drivers need support from the London Mayor who belongs to the Party of the Workers?

Tube drivers are striking because Transport for London has ripped up existing agreements and working arrangements for the Night Tube, demanding extra night and weekend working.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch explains: “This strike is about the ripping apart of popular and family friendly agreements that helped make the original Night Tube such a success. Instead the company want to cut costs and lump all drivers into a pool where they can be kicked from pillar to post at the behest of the management.

“We have made every effort in ACAS and direct talks since the off to resolve this dispute but it is clear that LU bosses are driven solely by the bottom line and have no interest whatsoever in the well being of their staff or the service to passengers.

“This strike action, and its serious consequences in the run up to Christmas, was avoidable if the Tube management hadn’t axed dedicated Night Tube staff and perfectly workable arrangements in order to cut staffing numbers and costs.

“We warned months ago that slashing two hundred Night Tube Train Driver positions would create a staffing nightmare and LU need to start facing up to that reality and soon. The union remains available for further talks even at this late stage.“

Contrast that with what Sadiq Khan, Labour’s London Mayor, has said about it, and you’ll understand why Unite’s Sharon Graham has tweeted what she did:

Here’s where Khan crossed the line:

It seems the claim was not true:

The letter to Khan states: “Our Lead Organiser for TfL wrote an email to London Underground senior managers… which ended with the words “We are happy to attend ACAS to resolve the dispute. And are available to do so.” We never received a reply to this email.

“Our reps and members have seen the email in which RMT offers to meet at ACAS and are justifiably furious at the complete misrepresentation of our position in the public domain. It is having an incendiary effect. It’s hard for us to understand why you’ve done this and all I can think is that you have been fed an inaccurate line by hawks within TfL.”

The explanation kindly suggested by Mr Lynch in the letter, even if true, wouldn’t let Khan off the hook because he should have checked the facts with the RMT Union.

It’s a terrible position for a Labour politician, in an elected position of authority, to choose. Here’s the better choice:

And here’s what all Labour politicians should be saying about it:

Sadly, the damage has already been done:

And we have identified the heart of the problem:

That’s exactly it. The rot is at the heart of the Labour Party because it is spreading from the leader himself.

Yesterday morning, This Writer’s Twitter feed was full of comments like these:

There are lots of good points in those comments. Probably the most pertinent are those stating that people who want a better country – for everyone rather than just the very rich – don’t owe Labour anything now that it clearly does not have the principles on which it was founded.

Nobody is obliged to vote for Labour. It is Starmer’s – and Khan’s – responsibility to show, by example, that they are worthy of our support.

Starmer’s record since April 2020 – and Khan’s shocking performance over the Night Tube – tell us they aren’t even interested in it.

Critics of Labour are being wrongly labelled ‘Tory enablers’. Let’s put the record straight

It’s incredibly how deeply tribal Labour voters are willing to delude themselves in order to prevent themselves from having to think about their political decisions.

They’re currently waging an underhand battle against those of us who do think before voting, on the grounds that any opposition to their sexist, racist and right-wing leader Keir Starmer is “enabling the Conservatives”.

They’re saying that the only possible choice of government is between the Conservative Party and what has now become a pale imitation of the Conservative Party.

And they’re vilifying those of us who are telling them that’s no choice at all and we’ll find a different way, thank you very much.

Worse still are the attacks on those of us who rightly point out Starmers racist and sexist attacks on Jewish Labour Party members who disagree with the violent Zionism he supports – many of whom happen to be women.

Greg Herriett sums up the opposing viewpoint:

Correct. Starmer’s “Labour In Name Only” (LINO) Party does not represent any of the democratic socialist principles on which the party was originally formed – as far as This Writer can tell – and the words on the back of the membership card justify reporting the organisation to the Advertising Standards Authority.

Instead of following the intention of those words… well:

The leadership is a huge part of the problem. Keir Starmer is, quite simply, not worthy of anybody’s support:

And he has surrounded himself with treacherous Red Tories of a similar ilk, so:

It’s something that was predicted long ago. Some of us (not This Writer; I was too young) saw it happening as far back as Neil Kinnock’s term as leader.

It happened exactly as Tony Benn said. Those who tried to fight it – like This Writer – were accused of bringing the party into disrepute and expelled. In fact, it is Starmer and his cronies who are dragging Labour’s name through the dirt.

I didn’t ask Max, below, to write the following:

Max came to that conclusion on the basis of the evidence.

And while StarmerLabour believes it is fine to expel thousands of members on false grounds, he and his goons see no hypocrisy in the following:

Add it all together and it doesn’t matter what the bullies say, because a fast-multiplying number of thinking people are responding with this:

What’s your side of it? Do you agree that nobody in their right mind would vote for Starmer’s creepy fascists as an alternative to Johnson’s? Or do you think that a red Tory is better than a blue Tory? Or what?

Labour pains: someone tell Rachel Reeves that her party was ALWAYS pro-business

Rachel Reeves: she looks like Morticia Addams and represents the death of hope for working-class people across the UK.

How pathetic can Labour’s shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer be?

She’s being feted by The Times, of all rags, for saying Labour is now a “pro-business party”.

I’ve got news for this dimwit: Labour always was.

The clue is in the name “Labour” – the party of working, and working-class people.

It was intended to represent these people, to make sure that honest workers receive an honest wage for their contribution to – guess what? – business.

And such a political organisation is needed now more than ever. Sadly, that party won’t be the one Rachel Reeves represents.

Labour also recognises the fact that some industries are best run by the state in the national interest – like the rail and water industries. These run on a national infrastructure of rail and sewer systems that remain the same, no matter which (these days) private firm is being paid for the service. When they were sold off, we were promised that part of the profits these firms would make would be invested in improvements to those systems – but that hasn’t happened. The money has gone to those utilities’ new owners – in Europe, mainly – instead.

So yesterday This Writer saw an accurate description of the UK’s rail system on Twitter, that said it consisted of 19th-century tracks, on which run 20th-century trains for which we are charged 21st-century fares.

Any fool can see that is not equitable. The utilities should be brought back into state ownership because the private profit-grubbers have reneged on the deal. We need to improve our aging infrastructure before it falls apart completely – and then we need to keep it public.

But the utilities aren’t anything like a majority of UK businesses. A properly-functioning Labour representation party would legislate to ensure that workers are represented on the boards of all private businesses – indeed, they should all have equal shares in those firms, to ensure that every honest worker receives an honest wage, rather than being ripped off by fat-cat investors, as is, far too often (but not always) the situation today. Also, worker representation would minimise the health risks that put far too many people onto sickness and disability benefits.

Anybody standing for a party that claims to be for labour representation should hold these to be self-evident necessities.

But Rachel Reeves doesn’t even want to talk about nationalisation, and when she says Labour is now “pro-business”, she means it is now wholeheartedly in bed with the fat-cat rip-off merchants.

Her attitude stinks. “Pro-business”? The only business she wants to do is her own – on you (and yes, for the hard-of-thinking, that is a reference to lavatorial functions).

Jo Bird: another Jewish woman is expelled from Labour – and the timing is suspicious

Jo Bird: Bigoted witch-hunters in the Labour Party have finally succeeded in their campaign to have her kicked out of the party under false pretences – and just in time to influence her demand for enforcement action against the newspaper that smeared her (and me).

The Labour Party has expelled Cllr Jo Bird – and while she says she is delighted to be out of its “hostile environment”, the timing is extremely suspicious.

Cllr Bird was originally suspended by the Labour Party – for just nine days – after making a self-deprecating remark that their should be “Jew process” when considering allegations of anti-Semitism against party members.

She was suspended again when she was running for election to Labour’s ruling body, the NEC, early last year.

Much was made of this at the time, including by the Jewish Chronicle. Ms Bird complained to press regulator IPSO about inaccuracies in its article, and the eventual finding came back in her favour.

The decision is one of more than 30 IPSO decisions and court libel verdicts against that newspaper. Ms Bird and a group of other people – including This Writer – have formally requested that IPSO launch a “standards investigation” examining whether measures should be taken to compel the Jewish Chronicle to conform to the Editors’ Code, rather than publishing falsehoods.

IPSO;s board is now set to discuss the matter on December 8. It is against this background that Labour has, finally, expelled Cllr Bird – retrospectively, for actions involving proscribed organisations that were considered entirely respectable at the time she was involved with them:

The expulsion is the usual nonsense from Labour’s leadership – which, let’s not forget, is riddled with racism, of which this is just another example.

The party claims to oppose discrimination against Jews, yet here it is, discriminating against a Jewish member over something she could not have known would ever be considered unacceptable.

And the expulsion has happened in advance of the IPSO meeting on December 8, meaning board members may form a false impression that the principle figure responsible for the request against the Jewish Chronicle is an anti-Semite.

As it is, the board seems to be in opposition to any enforcement action against that rag, despite its long history of what could at best be described as inaccuracies.

See this article by Brian Cathcart for Byline Times for the details.

Apparently the “toughest regulator in the Western world” is so toothless that it meekly hopes a bit of training for the JC‘s editor, Stephen Pollard, will fix the problem.

Now Labour’s racist leadership has given this toothless regulator an opportunity to avoid doing its job, on a false pretext that the request comes from a dodgy source.

Let’s remember that, by publishing a stream of articles containing falsehoods about Labour members who have been accused of anti-Semitism, the JC has been helping Labour to expel innocent party members under false pretences.

Labour has an interest in defeating Ms Bird’s (and my) demand for a standards investigation into this unethical rag.

In other words: it’s corruption. The Tories don’t have a monopoly on foul play, you know.

At last, it’s out! Independent documentary debunks Panorama over Labour anti-Semitism

It’s taken years but at last a group of independent media outlets – and yes, This Site had a hand in it – have released a documentary debunking claims by the BBC’s Panorama that the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn was anti-Semitic.

And it is still topical, three years after the Panorama attack piece was aired.

In the Panorama programme, interviewees alleged that The Labour Party is institutionally antisemitic. After Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, strenuously denied the claims, these people sued – and new leader Keir Starmer paid them a six-figure sum, despite having been told the party could win if it mounted a defence.

If you watch the new documentary, Reaching Over The Noise: Is Labour Really Antisemitic, you may easily come to the conclusion that Starmer’s advisers were right – and Starmer was wrong.

This Site covered the Panorama attack piece in depth at the time it was released – in a series of six articles:

This one…

This…

This…

This…

And this.

The new documentary takes a hard look at the allegations in Panorama, examines whether they were really justified, and comes up with an honest answer.

It balances the Panorama piece by interviewing British Jews who approved of Jeremy Corbyn and his leadership of the Labour Party – and revealing the abuse they have suffered as a result.

It examines the individuals whose testimony formed the backbone of Panorama – were they entirely honest or did they have a shared interest in putting forward a particular interpretation of events?

And it asks whether the narrative put forward by the BBC documentary was the whole story – or missed out vital information.

The verdict? Well…

Watch the documentary and you’ll find out.

Latest electoral opinion poll gives huge boost – to the GREEN PARTY

This was a surprise:

But don’t get any grand ideas – this commentator has it right:

And Another Angry Voice adds more context:

So there you have it:

The Conservatives have lost their poll lead to Labour – momentarily. It’s not because of anything Labour has done, therefore Labour is not likely to maintain it.

The beneficiary of the votes the Tories lost is the Green Party – possibly because of the backlash against the Tories for allowing the wholesale pollution of our rivers with untreated sewage.

But the Greens are no threat to anybody for the reason AAV describes: it would translate to just one Commons seat, as usual.

Unless the First Past The Post system is scrapped in favour of proportional representation, no smaller party will ever gain influence.

And neither Labour nor the Tories will have that!

Which means that, even with a (temporary) poll lead, Labour is propping up the Conservatives.

Starmer u-turns over Brexit after he used it to stab Corbyn in the back

Turn again, Keir Starmer, many times a traitor to Labour!

On yesterday’s (November 7) Andrew Marr Show he announced that a Starmer-led Labour government would not try to take the UK back into the European Union but would “make Brexit work”.

It’s a far cry from the policy he forced onto former leader Jeremy Corbyn, who had wanted to do exactly that.

Instead, at Starmer’s insistence, Mr Corbyn had to try to sell the idea of a second EU membership referendum to a UK population that was sick of the whole business (although not nearly as sick of it as they will be when the Tory Brexit incompetence really starts to bite).

As a result, he lost the Brexit-supporting so-called ‘Red Wall’ constituencies, the election, and the Labour leadership – which subsequently went to Starmer.

And now Starmer has announced that his Brexit strategy has changed – to what Mr Corbyn wanted in the first place.

Doesn’t that seem not just a little, but entirely treacherous?

It seems that Starmer deliberately pushed an unworkable Brexit policy onto Mr Corbyn, knowing that it would sink his chances of election?

To This Writer, it also seems that this means Starmer deliberately sabotaged Labour’s chance of winning the 2019 general election.

And to This Writer, it suggests that Starmer should be relieved of his duties as party leader, and his membership terminated; Labour Party members who actively work to stop the party from winning elections are expelled, unless my memory cheats me.

Ah, but he’s the leader and a member of the party elite. He’s the equivalent of nobility – which, in the Labour Party, is a contradiction in terms, isn’t it? They’re all supposed to be equal!

Still, there it is. He’s an elite and is therefore above the rules that govern the rank and file – in just the same way that corrupt Boris Johnson is above the rules and can therefore escape investigation, no matter how shocking his transgressions.

Honest Labour Party members must be cringing with embarrassment at the fact that such a crook is in charge.

CWU joins Unite in withdrawing donations to Westminster Labour Party

Labour’s worst leader: Starmer keeps screwing up so This Site will keep using this image.

The Communications Workers Union (CWU) has withdrawn its support from Keir Starmer.

A special conference of the union voted to provide only its affiliation fee to the national Labour Party from now on:

The union’s general secretary, Dave Ward, said the union would focus on individual Labour members who support its own aims: “In focusing our political resources on those in Labour who are really up for delivering for our members we are looking beyond the factional war being waged by an out-of-touch Westminster politics.

“This is a positive step for our union and a real offer to those in Labour who want to change things on the ground.”

It’s another defeat for Keir Starmer, who must now take the financial hit implied by the loss of the union’s funding. Coming on top of the #LabourDataBreach this puts his further-right-wing-than-the-Tories party in financial danger.

Too bad:

Spot the hypocrisy in the Labour Party’s latest messaging

Can you really believe Labour will reform anything when Keir Starmer is being worked like a ventriloquist’s dummy by Tony Blair and other New Labour gits?

Try to hold back your mirth as you read the following genuine social media post from the Labour Party. Jackie Walker’s response nails it:

Of course it is – as we’ve all seen this week with the revelation that Labour – Starmer’s Labour, let’s not forget – passed information about thousands of members and ex-members to a “third party” that officials are refusing to name, only for those recipients to lose the information, apparently to a ransomware criminal.

It is corrupt of Labour to have kept information about those of us who have left the party.

It is corrupt of Labour to have passed that information to anybody else without our knowledge and consent.

And now it is corrupt of Labour to refuse to name the “third party” concerned or tell us what restitution it will provide to the thousands of people it has wronged.

On a week when Labour has betrayed its members so badly, it is in no position to lecture anybody about corruption.

It’s time for people hit by the #LabourDataBreach to unite and demand answers

For the many? HOW many Labour Party members, ex-members, and even non-members have been affected by the massive data breach that happened at the end of October, of which the party only informed us a week later?

The (verbal) backlash against the loss of data affecting thousands of Labour Party members has been huge – but it is action that is needed.

This Writer has already suggested that a lawsuit is required – and some victims are suggesting that we (This Writer is among those affected) may each claim thousands of pounds in compensation.

But the question is: how do we take this forward?

Some have suggested that a Subject Access Request under General Data Protection Regulations should be made to the Labour Party, along the lines described by Philip Proudfoot:

If you want to go that way, then feel free. But I have already been down this route with the Labour Party and, even after calling in the Information Commissioner’s Office – the regulator overseeing data protection in the UK – it took two years to get a reply, and even then it was only partial.

The ICO was toothless because it then told me that if I wanted to take any matter forward, I should do it myself, through the courts, as has also happened to Simon Vessey, here:

So This Writer’s preference is that a large number of those affected should unite and launch legal action within the civil courts.

Already, people are coming up with ideas about how this can be done. I like this:

And of course the Left Legal Fighting Fund exists, if I recall correctly, to help people with cases like this. If everybody affected got together via this new Labour Data Breach website, and then donated towards a single court action via https://www.fightingfund.org, we might all gain access to a simple – and cheap – way of achieving justice.

It’s also – I believe – the only way we’ll force Labour to explain exactly what has happened.

ADDITIONAL: Another friend has contacted a different law firm for advice and will report back on what they are told:

And apparently the law firm mentioned in the tweet below is interested in representing people affected by the data breach – among many others, it seems. I would have thought it would be more cost-effective to hire a single firm, collectively.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
