It’s Almost Time Up For The Nomination Of Candidates in the 2020 Labour Leadership Election & Will Clive Lewis Make It Through To Keep Rebecca Long-Bailey True

Time is nearly up for the nomination of candidates in the 2020 Labour Party leadership election, those who have announced their candidacy have until 230pm tomorrow January 13th to get the requisite number of 22 MPs to nominate them (10% of the Parliamentary Labour Party) to then move onto the second round of nominations from Constituency Labour Parties & affiliates. As I predicted in a previous article I wrote about this Labour Party leadership election, both Clive Lewis & Emily Thornberry currently look as if they’re going to possibly come up short with the requisite number of nominations amongst the Parliamentary Labour Party, Thornberry currently has the backing of 10 MPs & Lewis the backing of only 4, I think it would particularly sad for the lefty left of Labour if Lewis isn’t able to continue contesting the Labour Party leadership election as over the past week in various media appearances he’s proven himself to have the x as in x-factor with being combatively articulate to be leader me thinks, however remember back in 2015 Jeremy Corbyn only just got over the line with the required number of nominations in that Labour leadership election & did so with minutes to spare before the nomination of candidates officially closed, so who knows what will happen tomorrow.

Ever since Emily Thornberry announced her candidacy to stand in the 2020 Labour Party leadership election, she’s just seemed to use it as an opportunity to bash & rubbish Jeremy Corbyn for everything he’s done, yeah well Jess Phillips has kind of beaten Emily to the punch on that one as she’s been continuously bashing & kicking Corbyn ever since she was elected to parliament in 2015. I’ve heard some political pundits speculate though Jess might’ve gotten the required number of nominations from parliamentary colleagues to move onto the second round of the Labour Party leadership election her leadership bid is already over as in various mainstream news media interviews she’s shown she’s all bluster not at all construction, yeah Jess is something of a gobshite that’s for damn sure but she’s kind of painting herself as something of an outsider to the rest of the candidates & remember Jeremy Corbyn did likewise in 2015, however I’ll be interested to see if she can gain the required 5% of Constituency Labour Parties (33 CLPs) to nominate her in the second round to get her name on the final leadership ballot put forward to the entire Labour membership considering all the shite she has said about Jeremy Corbyn over the past few years.

I certainly don’t want Jess Philips’s name to be on final leadership ballot even if Jess potentially being elected Labour leader would fuck Carl from Swindon (aka creepy rapey tweet man) off no end, Jess Phillips is a transphobic bigot & I’m a trans woman so definitely not in best interests if she ever comes close to being Labour leader & neither is it in best interests of Labour to also have any candidate proposing Labour becomes the ‘rejoin the EU’ party as that would definitely be committing electoral fucking suicide. Lisa Nandy might smack of being something of a red Tory & I worry just as much if she became Labour leader how much that might affect Labour’s social policy becoming a great deal more conservative, however at least she’s one Labour leadership candidate who’s a MP for a constituency in Northern England & grasps why Labour’s approach on Brexit was disastrous, unfortunately the architect of Labour’s nonsensical bullshit of a policy on Brexit presented to the electorate at GE2019 has nearly treble the nominations from MPs which Nandy or any other Labour leadership candidate has received.

Clive Lewis, Lisa Nandy, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Keir Starmer, Jess Phillips, Emily Thornberry, the current Labour leadership candidates

I really hope at the leadership hustings there’ll be over the next couple of months that a Labour Party member gets to challenge Keir Starmer from the floor about having pushed the Labour leadership into supporting a second referendum which fucked things up for Labour in its traditional heartlands or that Keir Starmer has hired Blairite Matt Pound to help run his leadership campaign somebody who has been the head of the Corbynsceptic group Labour First who’ve done nothing other then undermine the Labour leadership over the past few years. More of importance there are still questions surrounding actions Starmer took in defending various police shootings during his tenure as the head of the Crown Prosecution Service, but I doubt anything that pertinent will be permitted to be asked of Starmer during any Labour Party leadership election hustings.

One reason I kind of want Clive Lewis to remain contesting the 2020 Labour Party leadership election is to keep Rebecca Long-Bailey to the lefty left, but one has to ask again where the heck is Rebecca Long-Bailey because despite Unite & Momentum putting their weight behind her being the candidate of the lefty left, the continuity Corbynism candidate, her media profile has so far been negligible in regards to the Labour leadership election, I mean from what I’ve seen she doesn’t even have a campaign website unlike all the other candidates including those who won’t be getting through tomorrow’s first round of nominations, for fucks sake it feels as if her leadership hasn’t even gotten off the staring blocks & its all very worrying & foreboding for any of us redder then red socialists. I didn’t expect Rebecca Long-Bailey’s Labour leadership campaign to catch fire in the same way as there was with Corbynmania during the 2015 Labour leadership election, but it does need some kind of spark because right now there feels to be no razzle-dazzle to her leadership bid what-so-ever to help activists fired up in getting behind Rebecca & carry her onwards to the Labour leadership throne, somebody in her campaign team really ought to be seeing to igniting that spark & do so pronto.

How About Seeing Some Counter-Recruiting On Television?

The military yesterday launched a new recruitment campaign aimed at social-media addicts, to which my response is hey I’d prefer plebs spent their lives on Facebook then be a hired killer for the Military Industrial Complex. I’m so fucking fed up with these flashy military recruitment television advertisements spinning the lie that serving in the army or navy or whatever other fucking branch of the military is awesomely cool, when in fact those who sign up to be grunts in the military are merely cannon fodder in the next war for oil which will get gammon racists or stiff with excited as it will dressed as war against the threat of them brown people who eat halal pose to western civilisation blahdy bullshit blah, just as pretty much every war involving the British military which has happened in my own lifetime.

If the military are allowed to have recruitment adverts airing on commercial television, then why aren’t the Quakers or some other pacifist group allowed to have counter-recruitment adverts air on the same commercial television channels? Oh right the reason pacifist & anti-war groups aren’t allowed to run counter-recruitment adverts on commercial television is it’s deemed to be ‘political advertising’ & political advertising is prohibited on commercial television etc, yeah because running adverts attempting to recruit those who know no better to go kill brown people for their oil isn’t at all political.

British troops posing for a photos with their mate Tommy king of the racist gammon

Oh fuck off to those who say the military is about politics or that the military is politically neutral, yeah because British troops posing for photos with convicted fraudster & king of racist gammon Tommy Robinson isn’t at all political, troops using photos of Jeremy Corbyn for target practice after a prominent military chief ostensibly threatened a military coup if Jeremy Corbyn had been elected Prime Minister of course none of that is at all political, nor was it political that from military chiefs on down through the military ranks were happy to fight a war in Iraq despite in breaking international law. So yeah Fuck off with the bullshit notion ‘the military is above politics’ because everything is fucking political, learn to grasp this fact & while you’re at it stop coming out with illogical bullshit like you support the troops not the war because there’d not be a fucking war if the troops weren’t fucking fight it!

I’m no anarchist peacenik who thinks all conflicts can be resolved with a chat over a cup of herbal tea, we definitely need a military to defend this country, but that’s defend country not pursue the interests of greed of billionaire motherfuckers who only ever profit from death & destruction which is more often then not is dressed up as defending the interests of this country.

Oh & before anybody accuses me for ‘disrespecting the troops’ as they’re prepared to die protecting my freedom, hey I don’t deny their aren’t troops currently serving as there have been military personnel throughout history prepared to put down their lives to defend the freedoms we enjoy & I salute those who have made that sacrifice, but Iraq & Afghanistan & the first Gulf War that wasn’t about ‘defending our freedom’ & it’s not those who sign up to serve in the military I ultimately knock it’s the lie pun to recruit them & those who spin that lie.

#OhJeremyCorbyn

I saw earlier today #OhJeremyCorbyn was trending on Twitter, I think this might have been in reaction to the chant of ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ having been distinctly audible amongst the crowds watching the 2020 New Year fireworks display in London last night, bit fucking late isn’t it to be chanting ‘oh Jeremy Corbyn’, people had an opportunity to radically change this country by electing Jeremy Corbyn to be Prime Minister but turned their nose up at seizing that opportunity, hmm wonder if some people might now be suffering from a severe case of buyer’s remorse from having voted Tory.

Over the past week we’ve witnessed two antisemitic attacks, a knife attack in New York where at least 5 people attending Hanukkah celebrations at those of a rabbi were stabbed & in London where Jewish businesses as well as synagogue were targeted with antisemitic graffiti, despite this obviously being a consequence of the rise of far-right hate particularly going by some the antisemitic shite the suspect in New York knife attack is supposedly meant have blurted on social media & elsewhere, I’m still surprised the likes of Rachel Riley & the Israel Advocacy Movement & other Zionist trolls haven’t tried to blame Jeremy Corbyn for this, fuck it why not blame Jeremy Corbyn for the antisemitic attacks in London & New York as they’ve helped to smear Jeremy with everything else over the past few years which has had a hint of being motivated by antisemitism, oh no need for them to do so as the election is over & Jeremy lost.

The government’s ‘antisemitism czar’ John Mann has announced he’s going to launch some kind of hate probe into The Canary & other ‘far-left’ websites, rrrright you mean websites which campaign against racism including the racist policies of the Israeli government against the Palestinian people, hey John if you want probe anybody about antisemitism why aren’t you probing Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson our current Prime Minister who has a history of spouting antisemitic garbage. I think Boris bollocking on about Jews controlling the banks & the media & fiddling elections is more then a tad antisemitic, this is the kind of antisemitic conspiracy theory bullshit ripped straight from the pages of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an infamous antisemitic diatribe written 120 odd years which I know John Mann like myself is familiar with particularly as it notoriously inspired the likes of Hitler.

I’m surprised Zionists haven’t tried to twist it that it’s in fact Jeremy Corbyn not Adolf Hitler who’s to blame for the Holocaust, hey why the fuck not as Zionist trolls have been trying to distort & twist everything Jeremy Corbyn has said & done to make out he’s an uber antisemitic bigot when he’s nothing of the sort, so yeah why not attempt to rewrite history & associate him with every egregious crime committed against us Jews.

Oh you think I’m being ridiculous & offensive, I’ll tell you what I think is fucking offensive it’s having a honourable & decent man continuously smeared as an antisemite by the mainstream news media & Zionist trolls when he has spent a lifetime campaigning against racism & hate, what I find fucking offensive is Jeremy Corbyn & Labour weren’t elected to government largely due to that smear campaign & now a hard-right Tory government having been elected means tens of thousands more disabled people will now be murdered possibly including myself so fuck you! Of course Jews being stabbed is unacceptable, of course Jewish businesses & synagogues being attacked is unacceptable, because any kind violence & vandalism which is motivated by racism is fucking unacceptable & the authorities should come down on the culprits like a shit ton of bricks, but smearing a decent & honourable man who could have saved thousands of lives is also fucking unacceptable!

What A Fucking Dismal Decade For Those Of Us On The Political Left

So it’s the last few days, of the last month, of the last year, of this decade without a name, a time when people will reflect upon their favourite films or favourite TV series or favourite videogames of the past decade, Snowpiercer was my favourite film of the decade, my favourite videogame was Cities Skylines, as for my favourite TV series well I hate to be unoriginal as it’s likely the same as anybody else’s which of course is Game Of Thrones, but hey I’m not known for being a pop culture commentator or critic, I’m known as an uber sweary political commentator, so enough with bollocking on about how frigging awesome Snowpiercer & Game Of Thrones were & lets reflect in around about meandering style how dismal this decade has been for anybody who’s politically to the left.   

Your truly with Alys the love of my life

Though my conclusion is it’s been a dismal decade for those of us on the left of politics, for me personally it’s actually been better than an okay decade, the two major highlights for me personally were successfully coming out as trans in 2010 & then meeting the love of my life Alys (aka Kim Justice) in 2017. There have definitely been more positive than negative highlights for me personally this past decade, from giving up smoking in 2011, to finally managing to move into a decent home in 2016, to surviving a heart attack in 2018 (yes surviving a heart attack is a positive), there was also going to the Houses of Parliament for the first time in 2013 to lobby MPs on the issue of trans rights & subsequently doing so several times, then there was finally getting to talk to my trans hero Caroline Cossey though it’s a shame she turned out to be an utter truscum bigoted cunt well they do say don’t they that you should never meet your heroes they’ll only ever disappoint you.

This has certainly been the decade when trans people became far more prevalent in the public eye, yeah this isn’t just the decade where I came out as trans but just about the entirety of the trans community has seemed to have come out from hiding rejoicing in trans being far more about liberation then it being a stigma. Sure as a consequence of trans people having been far more prevalent in the public eye & thus there being far more interest from the mainstream media in trans people, it’s given rise to the cult of the professional tranny celebrity which I don’t think is helpful in the long term for trans people, however I do acknowledge that trans people appearing in the mainstream media has helped push justice & equality for trans people further up the political agenda which is no bad thing. Yes with trans rights becoming far more of a hot topic politically it’s created a transphobic backlash this however was always going to be inevitable as it’s happened previously when the issue of justice & equality have come to the forefront of the political zeitgeist in regards to other sections of society, but when looking back overall at the past decade regards to the plight of trans people I do think its been mostly positive & one of the few things non transphobic progressive lefties can smile about.

Richard Garner a friend who I lost near the beginning of this decade but still miss

For me personally & for me as a trans woman yes this decade has been generally positive, however it’s not as if I didn’t lose people close to me along the way, in particularly I think of my friend Richard Garner who died of a drugs overdose in 2011, after all these years I still find myself in floods of tears thinking about Rick, yes our politics were different he a libertarian-anarchist & me a socialist but we often found common ground politically whether it was opposition to the war in Iraq or legalizing pot, he was also a massive supporter of the LGBTQ community & supported me when I came out as trans when many others round me didn’t, but what I miss most of all about Richard was he was just as Punk Rock as me liking all the same movies & music & definitely having the same fuck you attitude. The death of trans activist Lily Summers in 2016 is another bereavement I find myself getting moist eyes about, me & Lily were on different sides of the Labour Party but a great deal of what she warned about in regards Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party has come true. I was recently reminded of a photo of me taken in a pub on New Year’s Eve 1999 along with 5 other drinking buddies, 20 years later I’m now the only one still alive, let us just say the deaths of those 5 chums weren’t due to natural causes, I don’t know sometimes I think I suffer from survivors guilt because I do often think how comes I’m still alive despite all the hard liquor I’ve drunk & all the illicit substances I’ve ingested.

Lemmy the world is duller place without him

This of course was the decade we lost Lemmy, he truly was the last of the troubadours who didn’t give a fuck, he just lived sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll to the fucking max. Lemmy was the very embodiment of sex, drugs & rock ‘n’ roll, definitely one of my ultimate rock & roll heroes & this world is a far duller place without him. Politically this was the decade we lost Charles Kennedy who I ironically once met in a bar sometime around 1998, he was a thoroughly decent man & in my opinion the last great leader of the Liberal Democrats, I remember back in 2003 he took a principled stance as Lib Dem leader in opposing Tony Blair’s ordering the involvement of the British military in the illegal invasion of Iraq, no other leader of a major parliamentary party did so & there were other prominent members of the Lib Dems such as former party leader Paddy Ashdown (who died last year) who supported the invasion of Iraq, so it was a brave stance he took & the right stance he took, he spoke for me & millions of people in opposition to Blair disgracing this country with the military misadventure in Iraq, Charles Kennedy might no longer be with us but I still applaud him for the stance he took.

I remember Lemmy died right at the end of 2015 & considering what a rock icon he was his death seems to have been a precursor to 2016 the year of the celebrity death what with the passing of David Bowie, Prince & George Michael etc. When historians look back upon this decade, 2016 will be seen as the pivotal year of this decade & not because it was the year Alan Rickman & Carrie Fisher died, but because it was the year of Brexit & Trump.

Back in 2009 I wrote an article for a news site which no longer exists, in which I essentially predicted the rise of the far-right during this decade, well both Brexit & Trump were a consequence of the rise of the far-right with all the hate & intolerance which comes with the far-right. You telling me that Brexit & Trump weren’t motivated by racism, Jesus fucking Christ don’t you recall the rhetoric which plumbed the depths of racist intolerance during both the EU referendum & the Trump presidential campaign?!?! Actually the truth as to what caused both Brexit & the election of Trump is the lack of investment by successive governments (including left of centre governments) in communities which had already spiralled ever downwards into being shitholes, people being constantly fucked in being denied any decent opportunity of bettering themselves & in waltzes the narcissistic egomaniac likes of Donald Trump & Nigel Farage telling the ill-educated poor & desperate living in those communities that its immigrants or people merely being different to them who are to blame for them being constantly fucked!

Brexit & Trump were a product of far-right opportunism, but that opportunism was given to them by the failure of the left, oh it’s definitely not been a good decade for political left that’s both the radical & mainstream left. Wonder whatever happened to the Occupy Movement, oh yeah they went the same way which Extinction Rebellion will be going, as in into historical obscurity having accomplished fuck all, I’m not saying street protests never accomplish anything because the Poll Taxes riots (& yes I was there) of nearly 30yrs ago were the beginning of the end for Margret Thatcher, but ultimately it will always be electoral politics which effects real change & how the mainstream left has failed spectacularly on that score this decade. Labour have lost 4 General Elections in a row this decade, sure the 2010 defeat was deserved as whole Blairite project had run its course & people wanted a change, the 2015 defeat well all Ed Miliband as Labour leader was offering was regurgitated Blairite shite which amounted to Tory lite & people just thought fuck it why not just have full fat Tory, some might want to somehow spin the 2017 defeat as some kind of victory yeah sure Labour did better then any pundit was expecting but it didn’t prevent the Tories in continuing to kill thousands more disabled people did it, as for the 2019 oh fuck we are all still reeling from that one being its one of the worse General Election defeats for Labour despite the Tories having been government for practically a decade.

Me with Jeremy Corbyn back in 2015

It seems a lifetime ago when upon that second Saturday in September of 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader by a landslide & all us redder then red socialists got drunk as fuck thinking here starts the revolution, but here we less than 5yrs later & well the revolution is down the fucking shitter & on the brink of entering the 2020s I’ve never been as scared as I’m right now about my future as a consequence of being a disabled people. It’s disabled people who Labour have ultimately failed, I’m not saying disabled people should from now on never vote Labour again because of course they should continue voting Labour, what I’m saying is that Labour have failed disabled by not winning elections & thus not being in government & so not putting an end to the Tory genocide against disabled people.

The Official Tory policy when it comes to caring for the disabled

The most dismal thing of this dismal decade has been the scale of the Tory genocide against disabled people, yes I knew when the Tories were elected to government in 2010 they were going to make disabled people pay for the reckless behaviour of their banker chums which the decade previous had caused a global financial crisis. But I never thought it would result in the murder of a 100,000 plus disabled people nor the architect of the government program which has resulted in genocidal levels of disabled people being killed would be receiving a fucking knighthood in the 2020 New Year Honours!

I actually hate writing this kind of ‘year in review’ or ‘decade in review’ type article, not because often end up to be lengthy pieces, but there’s always stuff you forget to mention no matter how many notes you make. Dale Farm, the war in Libya, the riots across Britain in the summer of 2011, Chelsea Manning & Julian Assange, all important stuff which hasn’t gotten mentioned in depth with this review, I guess to sum up this review of the past decade would be to describe it as the stuff which had the biggest impact on me or just that I can’t write about everyfuckingthing which has happened this decade.

Lizzy Once Again Tells Us What HER Government Is Going To Be Doing

Royalists always tell you that Queen Lizzy does a damn difficult job, yeah because living in palaces with butlers & servants waiting on her hand & foot, travelling about in golden horse drawn carriages or (as was the case today) chauffer driven luxury cars, sitting on thrones pronouncing what HER government is going to be doing is a really difficult fucking job isn’t it. Oh what a chore it must have been for Lizzy have visited HER parliament for the second time in two months to tell us all what HER shitty poxy Tory government is going to do to further fuck up the lives of the masses now it has a thumping parliamentary majority.

Queen Lizzy at the State Opening Of Parliament

Oh there was you thinking it was the people’s parliament & it was the people’s government, no it’s all Lizzy’s because she happened to be squeezed out of the correct muff, at the correct time, with the correct silver shoved up her arse. I remember years ago Terry the Tory Troll who use to cyberstalk me in the comment sections of blogs I’ve previously written for, getting upset when I referred to Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II as Queen Lizzy & getting annoyed at me being pedantic about Lizzy using the phrase “my government will…”, bitching that I knew exactly what that meant, yeah of course I know what that phrase really means but its an outmoded phrase from an outdated institution. There’s much I love about this country, rolling green hills & the White Cliffs of Dover, The Rolling Stones, fish & chips, Dr Who, the Jaguar E-Type, but I will NEVER grasp nor respect the concept of unaccountable hierarchical political power, I will FOREVER be a rabid republican so long as this country has a hereditary head-of-state not a head-of-state elected by the people.

There were more then 30 bills announced in the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening Of Parliament, unsurprisingly the Tory government’s program of legislation was dominated by Brexit, yeah because for fucks sake all we heard from Boris Johnson during the GE2019 campaign was ‘get Brexit done’ ad fucking nauseam, well if that wasn’t enough to have racist Brexiter gammon drowning in their own jiz then the news the Tories are to institute an Australian points-based immigration system definitely will have racist gammon choking on their own jiz whilst lounging about in mom’s basement as an Australian points-based immigration system has long been a wet dream of xenophobes & racists.

It was announced in Queen’s Speech that there was to be increased investment in the NHS, how good that might happen to sound the truth is even with the Tories proposed increase to the NHS budget, the NHS budget will still be lower in real terms then it was under the last Labour government in 2010.

Queen Lizzy also announced whilst upon her throne that the Tories were going to bring about tougher prison sentences for various offences, hmm I wonder if that includes tougher sentences for domestic abuse because if so Boris could find himself behind bars as rumour has it he’s in the habit of physically assaulting his girlfriend.

Despite Jeremy Corbyn being on his way out as Labour leader, he actually gave one of his best ever parliamentary performances as Labour leader ripping into the Queen’s speech & ripping apart the Tories horrific record in government over the past decade.

There was no mention in the Queen’s Speech of tackling poverty but hey that’s because the poor are easy fodder for the Tories to exploit so of course the Tories will do nothing to tackle poverty, neither was there any mention of tackling the homeless epidemic but hey shocked I’m not as its been well established the Tories seriously don’t give a shit about that issue.

Remember during the GE2019 campaign the Tories when not bollocking on about getting Brexit done made a big play about how they actually cared about environmentalism & were serious about tackling climate-change, well now the election is done & dusted they’re back to not giving a shit as there was fuck all mention in the Queen’s Speech about tackling climate-change by moving us to a zero-carbon economy.

So whole load more Tory bullshit causing further anguish & pain amongst the most vulnerable in society is essentially what was laid out today in the Queen’s Speech, oh more pain & suffering what a lovely prospect NOT!

It Pains Me Much To Say This About Jeremy Corbyn (But It Needs To Be Said!)

In reaction to the General Election results Jeremy Corbyn said “it was a disappointing night of results for Labour”, no Jeremy the 2019 General Elections results weren’t ‘a bit disappointing’ for Labour, the General election results were fucking disastrous (then some) for Labour.

Jeremy Corbyn has now said he wants to stay on as Labour leader to oversee a ‘period of reflection’ as to why Labour lost the election, hey Jeremy you want to reflect upon why Labour have so devastatingly lost this election then go stand in front of the bathroom mirror, because time & time again Labour activists were met on the doorstep with “I would vote Labour if it wasn’t for Jeremy Corbyn being leader”.

Corbyn & McDonnell & co are saying the reason Labour lost this election was because of Brexit, I don’t deny that people wanting to get Brexit done wasn’t a factor with this election, but Labour’s policy on Brexit didn’t help any, to say Labour were going to renegotiate a Brexit deal with the EU but then tell people to vote against it in a referendum is a nonsensical bullshit mess of a policy & people saw it for the mess what it was.

If it ain’t Brexit which the current Labour leadership is blaming for this General Election defeat then it’s the mainstream news media, yes most definitely the mainstream news media have continuously vilified & smeared & egregiously demonised Jeremy Corbyn since was elected leader of the Labour Party, but it doesn’t matter how much I or any other Labour support might bitch about how much the mainstream news media have been utter evil cunts in continuously demonising Jeremy Corbyn, whining about doesn’t get us anywhere.

it pains me to say but Jeremy is part of problem for Labour not its solution

The harsh reality is the accusations of antisemitism have hang over Jeremy like a bad cloud & it’s toxic to the Labour Party, I certainly do not believe Jeremy Corbyn to be antisemitic nor an IRA sympathiser or anything else the mainstream news media have smeared him as & I’ve written countless articles defending Jeremy from the mainstream-news-media’s bullshit smears spun against him, but it doesn’t matter how much I think Jeremy has been a courageously compassionate & principled man because ultimately it’s what the voters think of Jeremy Corbyn & Labour which is of importance & the GE2019 result speak for themselves on that matter.

Jeremy Corbyn should have resigned already, he should have gone this morning, the 1983 General Election result under the leadership of Michael Foot is often considered as an utter fucking disaster for Labour, well Jeremy Corbyn has surpassed Michael Foot when it comes to leading Labour to a mitigating fucking electoral disaster, at least Michael Foot had the courtesy to take responsible for the ’83 result & fucked off pronto.

I know some will accuse me of being too quick to throw Jeremy under the bus for the defeat of Labour at this General Election or make out that I’m just in shock regards the GE2019 election result & should give myself a few days before I write anything meaningful or some other bullshit to dismiss what I’m saying here. Hey do you know who I truly blame for the GE2019 result? I blame myself as I twice voted for Jeremy Corbyn to be party leader & was one of his most ferocious cheerleaders, but here we are in the cold light of day & I’ve not only just helped to inflict further misery upon my life but on the lives of millions. The people of places such as Darlington & Workington & numerous other northern towns which were devastated by Thatcherism back in the 1980s, have just given a Thatcherite government a hefty parliamentary majority & many living in in such places will seriously come to regret it, but I as well as the Labour Party need to take responsibility for the regret they will come to feel in time.

I was once one of Jeremy’s most ferocious cheerleaders

I know some Corbyn supporters will no doubt point to the 2017 General Election where Labour gained seats under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn, well with the gift of hindsight me thinks that had more to do with Theresa May’s woeful performance as Tory leader then anything else, oh & Labour’s 2017 General Election manifesto was radical but not so radical it frightened people into thinking if they voted Labour they’ll be next be living under the rule of Marxist doctrine, you see before anybody accuses me of suddenly becoming some sell out watered down piss weak social-democrat that’s not in fact what I’m advocating at all, Jeremy Corbyn ostensibly won the argument on austerity, there were a lot of great ideas proposed by Labour with Jeremy as leader which have a great deal of public support such as axing tuition fees & renationalising the railways but the bottom line is Jeremy Corbyn was unable to sell those great ideas because of his past associations being toxic as fuck.

Even If Jeremy Corbyn Doesn’t Win The Election He’s Won The Argument

Today is the 39th anniversary of the murder of the man who composed what’s long become my own personal anthem, however when I think of Jeremy Corbyn & John Lennon songs it’s not Working Class Hero which comes to mind but the song Imagine, with lyrics such as “No need for greed or hunger” & “Imagine all the people sharing all the world” Imagine really does seem to reflect Corbyn’s vision for the world & yes you might think him a dreamer but he’s certainly not the only one.

Anytime I’ve heard Imagine over the past couple of years, I’ve immediately thought all of which Jeremy Corbyn has spent a lifetime campaigning for, so much so it I pretty much started thinking it was Jeremy Corbyn who composed & sung Imagine & forgetting that it was in fact John Lennon who did. I obviously can’t say for sure if John Lennon was alive today he’d have been supportive of Jeremy Corbyn but knowing all I know about John Lennon & considering the radical politics he was involved with in the 60s/70s there’s good chance might have, what I can say with absolute certainty is even Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t win the General Election this coming Thursday he’s won the argument.

Oh sure we all know it’s utter bullshit that the Tories will follow through when it comes to investing billions in public services if they win GE2019, but just the fact the Tories are pledging to invest billions in health & education & policing, that alone is an admission by the Tories they’ve lost the argument when it comes to austerity & it’s been Jeremy Corbyn who’s spearheaded the argument against austerity.

Though Jeremy Corbyn & Labour might have won the argument when comes to austerity, the issue might now be if the Tories do win this coming Thursday & do shake the magic money tree when it will only be in an effort to placate the middle-classes, in other words money won’t be invested where it’s most desperately needed, we’ll still have more foodbanks then branches of McDonalds, we’ll still have record numbers sleeping rough on the streets of Britain, we’ll still have Universal Credit contributing to killing off the most vulnerable. The only way to ensure money is invested where it ought to be invested to prevent people from going hungry & homelessness is to get Labour elected to government this coming Thursday, but everybody already seems way busy writing Labour’s GE2019 obituary.

Remember GE2017 when pretty much universally all self-important political pundits in the mainstream news media were all with their arrogant smugness writing off Labour, busying themselves compiling obituaries & autopsies about Labour’s inevitable battering at the ballot box long before election day, yeah & come election day they weren’t expecting Labour to increase it’s number of seats & in doing so winning parliamentary seats in places where Labour hadn’t previously won parliamentary seats. Right now we are pretty much at the same point we were with GE2017 & again all the self-important Westminster-bubble dwelling political pundits in the mainstream news media with their smug arrogance are already busying themselves penning obituaries & autopsies regards Labour’s hefty defeat this Thursday, despite the fact that Labour have closed the gap on the Tories in opinion polls published over the past few days & if the reflection of things tightening electorally in those opinion polls is at all accurate then we are in hung parliamentary territory thus it’s likely GE2019 could still result in there being some kind of Labour/SNP coalition government.

yes its still possible Jeremy Corbyn could be PM

All I’ve heard from political pundits in the mainstream news media over the past few days is will Jeremy Corbyn resign as Labour leader immediately after Labour’s crushing defeat on Thursday & how will a John McDonnell leadership be different & will he be grooming Rebecca Long-Bailey to take over as leader if he’s only to be an interim leader, it’s not as if I think John McDonnell wouldn’t make a good Labour leader but hey the election ain’t happened yet & you’re a fool to seriously predict with certainty it’s outcome, you’d have thought political pundits in the mainstream news media would have learnt this from GE2017.

If sadly Labour do lose the General Election on Thursday then at least Jeremy Corbyn can step down from the leadership of the party knowing he’s forever changed the party for the better. Yet another argument Corbyn won was with the Labour Party itself, seems a lifetime ago the party was mired by the dogma of Blairite Toryism, but Corbyn won the argument with his election as party leader & from that moment on with the direction in which he has steered Labour, jettisoning mediocrity of Blairite Toryism & reigniting Labour’s socialist fire, ensuring the party no longer attempts to mimic the Tories & run scared from any association with the term socialism in attempting to win power but instead with fanfare proudly heralding Labour is a socialist party offering upfront honest socialist solutions. I somehow can’t see in defeat Labour will once again be resorting back to thinking the only way they’ll ever win power is to mimic the Tories no matter how much the party might hiss & whine about doing so, because Labour is definitely no longer their party & the majority of the party don’t want Labour to be that party, the majority of the party membership are now those who’ve been inspired by Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist vision is possible & will want Labour to continue in offering an alternative to the Tories which is steadfastly socialist.

Tory Lies & Lack Of Responsibility In The Aftermath Of The London Bridge Terrorist Attack

In the hours that followed Friday’s terrorist attack on London Bridge in which the terrorist responsible Usman Khan was shot dead by armed police, far-right gammon were circulating on social-media a fake Jeremy Corbyn tweet which implied Corbyn was critical of the police shooting dead Usman Khan. Though it might have been gullible gammon who were circulating a fake Jeremy Corbyn tweet implying he was critical of the police shooting dead Usman Khan, I strongly suspect the fake tweet originated from whatever dark propaganda department there is within the Tory election campaign apparatus, it’s not as it would be the first time during the GE2019 that the Tories had been spreading fake news.

Corbyn in the past has been critical of the police’s shoot to kill policy & I’m glad he has been particularly when thinking of cases such as Jean Charles de Menezes & Mark Duggan, but in regards to the police shooting dead Usman Khan, well if anybody had bothered to tune in this morning to Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday program they’d of seen an interview with Jeremy Corbyn where he said the police were perfectly justified in shooting dead Usman Khan. The police were indeed perfectly justified in shooting Usman Khan as he had already killed two people & looked as if he was going to try to kill more by triggering what looked very much like a suicide vest, there are however serious questions surrounding why the security services weren’t keeping closer tabs on an individual who’d already been convicted of terrorist offences & in fact had been sentenced to indeterminate prison sentence, so yeah why the fuck was this loon allowed out of prison as early as he had been? Well you’re not going to get any credible answers from Boris Johnson as his only answer for the London Bridge terrorist attack is to blame Labour.

Boris Johnson on this morning’s edition of The Andrew Marr Show

Whilst Jeremy Corbyn was being interviewed this morning on Sky News’s Sophy Ridge On Sunday, Boris Johnson was being interviewed on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show & oh fuck me it was a car crash interview, some people might remember Piers Morgan’s interview on CNN with far-right shock Alex Jones from a few years back, well Marr’s interview with Boris was reminiscent as Boris essentially loudly waffled on regardless of any questions Marr was asking him refusing to take any responsibility for Tory government possibly having been able to prevent the London Bridge terrorist attack rather he did what the Tories always seem to do which of course is to blame Labour, this is despite the fact Labour haven’t been in government for almost a decade. Hey it wasn’t Labour who drastically cut policing numbers, it wasn’t Labour who have been trying to privatise the Probation Service, it’s not been Labour who’ve had a decade to bring tougher terrorist prevention & yet haven’t, all of which we can now see is putting lives at risk, I mean what nutty brown crazed capitalist bullshit is outsourcing the probation service what next out sourcing GCHQ to a Chinese telecoms corporation.

Boris Johnson is using the London Bridge terrorist attack to propose tougher prison sentences for terrorists which I doubt many would disagree with, oh wait you thought that Boris & the Tories weren’t going to use the London Bridge terrorist attack to electioneer, hey never be foolish enough to hold the Tories in high esteem nor foolish enough to think the Tories wouldn’t go as far as killing people to win an election, don’t you find it suspiciously coincidental & convenient that during both the 2017 & 2019 General Election campaigns when the Tories are starting to coming under pressure & are starting to sag in the polls there are suddenly terrorist attacks for them to take advantage of on the election trail. Even if the London Bridge terrorist attack wasn’t a false flag & I’m definitely not saying it was just posing the question it could be, at the very least the Tory government with Boris Johnson at the helm have failed to in the first duty of any government which is keeping its citizens safe because they’ve wanted to do policing & security on the cheap.

The Reason I Bitch As Much As I Do About The Antisemitic Smears Against Corbyn In The Mainstream Media

Funny how when there’s an election campaign to be fought that the antisemitic smears against Jeremy Corbyn & Labour in the mainstream media seem to inextricably increase, the most ridiculous bullshit smear I’ve heard this election campaign was due to Jeremy (possibly) incorrectly pronouncing ‘Epstein’ as in Jeffrey Epstein during his first television debate with Boris Johnson, yeah I know what the fucking fuck?!?!?

The Chief Rabbi over the past days has been attempting to once more smear Jeremy Corbyn as well as the entirety of the Labour Party as antisemitic, yes well Ephraim Mirvis is a homophobic bigot hiding behind religious doctrine & Jeremy Corbyn has been steadfastly fighting racism before this middle aged Jewish woman writing this article was born as well as just as steadfastly supporting LGBTQ equality since the days when one was viciously lambasted for doing so. Ephraim Mirvis & I are both in fact Jews originally from South Africa, but whereas I campaigned against Apartheid in South Africa & now campaign against apartheid in Israel, Mirvis is more then happy to continue supporting apartheid in Israel. Ephraim Mirvis as Chief Rabbi claims ‘the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety’ & that the ‘soul of nation is at stake’ if Labour wins the upcoming General Election, oh I’m definitely anxious alright, I’m anxious as fuck if GE2019 results in the Tories getting a majority in parliament because as a disabled person I know my life will definitely be at stake.

The Chief Rabbi ain’t the Chief Rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis is now the Tory Rabbi & should have to wear a Kippah with the Tory insignia embodied on it to show who he’s really speaking on behalf of, he’s certainly not speaking for me as Jewish person living in Britain, but it really doesn’t matter how much I scream THE CHIEF RABBI DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALL JEWS.

Jeremy Corbyn holds a press conference where he reveals 400 pages plus of documented evidence that the Tories are in secret negotiations to give Donald Trump & his vampirical capitalist cronies full market access to the NHS, in other words plans to privatise the NHS, now this revelation should be a devastating blow against the Tories which the mainstream news media should lap up, but no the journalists in attendance including the BBC’s Chief Tory correspondent Laura Kuenssberg ask Jeremy about yep you guessed it whatever fresh accusations of antisemitism there’s been.

Where have been the representatives in the mainstream news media from Jewish Voice for Labour the antizionist Jewish group within Labour who support Corbyn, yes where have the JVL representatives been to respond in the news media to the Chief Rabbi, oh shit I forgot the mainstream news media doesn’t want to give a platform to anybody who goes against the narrative they’re pushing that Jeremy Corbyn is antisemitic because the narrative that Corbyn is antisemitic is working just fine. The reason I’ve bitched as much as I fucking have about antisemitic smears against Jeremy Corbyn & Labour is that I know no matter how bogus or bullshit the antisemitic smears against Jeremy & Labour might be I know full well from personal experience they work on the minds of the ignorant, I also know from personal experience that the meaning of antisemitism is being distorted in the minds of many.

This tweet was posted at me recently accusing me of being antisemitic for simply supporting Labour.

When I responded to tell them I’m Jewish & no turkey voting for Christmas, they then responded with the following tweet….

It’s a bullshit conspiracy theory that George Soros collaborated with the Nazis propagated by Alex Jones & Infowars, its also as any Jew can tell you dog-whistle antisemitism, yeah kind of ironic that somebody accusing me of antisemitism is them being antisemitic but I can’t say I’m really that surprised, this isn’t the first time somebody has accused me of being antisemitic for supporting Labour then started bollocking on about how I’m in the pay of George Soros having had their head fed by likes of David Icke or Alex Jones not realising they’re fucking rabid antisemites, the whole New World Order conspiracy bullshit Icke & Jones push derives from the infamous antisemitic diatribe The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The other day a friend of mine started bollocking on about how the Rothchilds & the illuminati control the world economy, it turned out they’d bought into the bullshit being propagated by David Icke not realising it was antisemitism & I had to spend an hour having to explain why it was antisemitic, the bottom line is if the Jews do control the world economy then being a Jew why is it I’m continuously financially broke!

The Chief Rabbi Does Not Speak For All Jews

Do you know what Tommy Robinson & the Chief Rabbi have in common? They’re both uber Zionists who seem to have no moral qualms when it comes to the Israeli government committing ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people & they’ve both one way or another endorsed Boris Johnson to be re-elected Prime Minister.

Ephraim Mirvis

The Chief Rabbi has launched what the mainstream news media are describing as a scathing attack upon Jeremy Corbyn & Labour in an article published by Times newspaper, it’s obvious to me by writing ‘a new poison sanctioned from the very top has taken root in the party the Chief Rabbi is attempting to once more smear Jeremy Corbyn as antisemitic & to write ‘the overwhelming majority of British Jews are gripped by anxiety’ is an attempt to stoke fear amongst Jews against Labour. Okay none of what the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis wrote is a ringing endorsement of Boris Johnson, however it’s clear he doesn’t want Jews voting Labour & in the not too distant past he’s had some very nice things to say about Boris Johnson.

Ephraim Mirvis as Chief Rabbi seems oh so friendly & supportive of Boris Johnson a man who’s a known racist & who’s supported by known racists such as Tommy Robinson, he seems to be okay with being supportive of the Tories who whilst in government have killed tens of thousands of disabled people yet when anybody criticises the Israeli Defence Force killing innocent Palestinians he will immediately accuse them of being antisemitic.

I’m a Jew who weirdly doesn’t feel at all anxious about Jeremy Corbyn possibly being elected Prime Minister in just over two weeks, geez I must be a turkey voting for Christmas, a seriously fucked up Jew voting to be sent to the gas chambers, oh no wait the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis doesn’t actually speak for me as a Jew because the CHIEF RABBI DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ALL JEWS!

The mainstream news media this morning were all over The Times article penned by Ephraim Mirvis & there was a whole parade of politicians & Jewish pundits willing to lambast Jeremy Corbyn as an antisemite, err where were the Jewish voices who support Jeremy Corbyn in the mainstream media this morning to defend Jeremy because you know there are actually quite few of us, ah right the mainstream news only wants to push the narrative that Corbyn & Labour are antisemitic & fuck you to anybody who might disrupt that narrative because the mainstream news media no longer do serious journalism they now only ever push propaganda. For fucks sake Mirvis’s article in The Times was a fucking hatchet job, I mean the Times is a paper which is known to have a reputation for rabid Tory bias particularly as its part of the evil empire which we know as the Murdoch media empire & of course we are amidst a General Election campaign, yeah more then coincidence that Mirvis’s article was published in The Times the same day as Labour are due to launch the party’s race & faith manifesto.
