The Coup

All, or most, of what has been said about the failed Labour Coup on these pages

#ImWithCorbyn

 


21 September 2016

The Coup that Begat a Purge

Whatever the outcome in the Labour Leadership Election, that will almost certainly not be the end of the matter.

What exactly is a Marxist?

20 September 2016

David Dimbleby knowingly referred to John McDonnell as a "Marxist" on last week’s BBC Question Time.

And just what exactly is a Marxist?

Dimbleby was of course using "Marxist" as a toxic shorthand signal to his audience, his panel and Daily Mail readers everywhere who have no clue about what a Marxist might amount to. The panel of cronies duly took DimbleDon's lead and abused McDonnell accordingly, as they simultaneously accused McDonnell of abusing others.

We know that Margaret Thatcher was not a Marxist, because she believed there is no such thing as "society".  That was of course the kind of nonsense that set us all on a course of Tory and Blairite ideological "privatisation."

At least we now all know what "privatisation" is and that handle is now so toxic that even Daily Mail readers are likely to bulk at the prospect of any more of it. The Tories are obliged to lie about their continuing plans for ever more privatisation and the Blairites continue to claim that they are free of blame.

Yes, even the dumb arse Daily Mail readers are a little bit Marxist without even knowing it.

Shame on DimbleDon for playing semantic games to help the Tories.

The BBC headline clip from the Laura Kuenssberg interview with Owen Smith is notable for the question and not for the answer.

"Are you suggesting that he, (Jeremy Corbyn) is lying?"

Owen Smith, did not say, "No, of course I am not saying that, and by the way that is an outrageous question deigned to malign and undermine Jeremy Corbyn's reputation for honesty"

He did however equivocate and set about undermining Labour election prospects as if that were in the interest of the Labour Party.

Tories for Corbyn?

Blairites & Trotskys

War & Peace

Shorthand for BS #ImWithCorbyn #ShiftySmithy

Sadiq Khan has written to me and says I should take advice from the polls.

Owen Smith has also written to me unconvincingly. Shifty.

I have to say that the Labour Leadership contest is becoming more interesting than the Olympics.

Because of The Mayor’s advice I am going to move on and assume Jeremy Corbyn will be elected leader of the Labour Party in due course as widely assumed and predicted by the polls. This does suggest that the leadership contest will be exposed as bizarrely unequal and unnecessary.

However, Sadiq Khan would have me and all other Labour Members change our preference of Labour leader, citing other "Polls". He was vague about that but this is his only reasoning and that buoys me up optimistically.

#ImWithCorbyn

I say, “Sadiq Khan, do not interfere with my free will. Polls determine what others might want and not what I might want. If you are a Blairite then say so openly, otherwise please butt out.”

Sadiq Khan also tells me I should vote for Owen Smith because he has achieved very much. But then we all gaped and wondered how this much achievement occurred without being noticed by anyone at all.

I am going to assume that the Murdoch, Blairite Main Stream Media and the Westminster Bubble are affronted by the notion of an old man with impeccable integrity would dare sweep away the cozy status quo they all so covet and adore.

I am left with the fantasy that Andrew Neil is posing in his mirror resplendent in his underpants contemplating his best looking TV reaction shot when this news breaks. He thinks he is cool but when this happens, he will break wind.

Today, the man with the overcrowded train set funded by the tax payer, got involved.

If only all politicians would refuse to travel “Upper Class.”

Owen Smith’s Lunchtime

#ImWithCorbyn

Owen would see his task as adopting Jeremy Corbyn's policies; a no-brainer since he needs to appeal to the Labour Party membership who, let’s face it, support Jeremy Corbyn's policies.

He therefore is obliged to undermine, if not smear Jeremy at the same time, but on what grounds?

Perhaps the references to Jeremy Corbyn's age is a clue to his thinking? Jeremy’s lifetime commitment to these policies compared to Owen Smith's lunchtime conversion to the very same policies is noted.

Age discrimination is of course illegal, and repugnant, lest we forget.

The only way Owen Smith can pull that off is to say what he does not mean and hope that nobody might notice. But we have noticed Owen.

Jermy Corbyn may be the leader and yo may sharpen his pencils.

Owen Smith more Blairite than Blair

#ImWithCorbyn

The Blairite wing of old New Labour does not like the term “Blairite” and find it a bullying term of abuse.

Jeremy Corbyn does not use the term “Blairite” because he also regards it a term of abuse, and he doesn’t do abuse.

Owen Smith had no vote but says he “would have voted against the Iraq War”.

How soon has that porky unraveled?

How Blairite is that?

Really! Is that what you think, Owen?

 The Big Horse Poo Coup

Dear  Insert Name Here

Ian Murray

 

The Daily Mirror says that you are "devastating."

They used that word to describe your TV resignation, the one that happened before you offered your written resignation for scrutiny.

Both suggest you had little or no care or attention or respect for the damage you were prepared to do to Jeremy Corbyn and yes, the Labour Party.

I read your resignation letter and I wondered what on earth you were saying when you wrote,

"I have always expressed my thoughts directly to you (Corbyn) as I think it is important to be honest and open with each other. However, I do not feel this has been reciprocated."

Clearly if you are saying Jeremy has not been honest with you then you are calling him a liar, with or without parliamentary privilege.

You told the TV nation pejoratively that Corbyn should look in the Mirror, but with banal irony your libel is published in full in the Daily Mirror.

You seem to be a self serving plonker when you quote John Smith to explain your actions. You are no John Smith.

I understand you failed to follow Jeremy’s lead and declined to vote against the 2015 Tory Welfare cuts bill, that disadvantaged poor and disabled recipients.

Are you proud of that?

Heidi Alexander

I have read all the resignation letters including yours.

You have clearly agreed to participate in the coup calculated to undermine Jeremy Corbyn and diminish his capacity to do what you say must be done to attack the Tories.

You have however insulted the Labour party membership in order to have it your way. 

I had no vote to elect Jeremy as leader but I did join the Labour Party when and because he became the leader replacing the Processed Peas.

I just don't like Processed Peas.

Horse Poo Coup

UPDATE

Finding a fault in Jeremy Corbyn means more to the Blairettes and Laura Kuensberg than finding the fault in the Tories. 

Jeremy certainly campaigned for REMAIN without lies, so why is so much Blairette ire directed at him and zero Blairette will to challenge the lies and the liars that created BREXIT.

 

Yes, we do need another Referendum and even Hesselitine is saying so.

The Blairette coup is clumsy, calculated, and more than a little pathetic.

Would like to have been a fly on the wall as they all discussed the plot.

"When should we do it?"

"Wont do unless you do first".

"Who goes first?".

"Hillary, you're a man, you go first".

"You tell him".

One of these ambitious young Blairetts would have us believe they came to this decision independently on the same day. This lie was of course a horse poo.

Corbyn has no mandate in the Parliamentary Labour Party and never had it. He does however have a glorious mandate of The Labour Party Membership, and one which is more convincing than any other political election of any leader of any party.

There is a pro Corbyn rally in Westminster tonight at 6 pm. Will LauraK be there to report on it? Doubtful.
