Five questions for new Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer about his UK and US national security establishment links

(June 5, 2020)

The public deserves answers about the UK’s new opposition leader and his relationship with the British national security establishment, including the MI5 and the Times newspaper, his former role in the Julian Assange case and his membership in the intelligence-linked Trilateral Commission.

Labour can never coexist while these centrist bastards remain, we need a new party and leave them to it. And something to remember. If there’s a party on the left threatening success, Tory voters will cling to the Tory Party even more, Starmer will never attract them

Defence secretary Ben Wallace makes statement in the Commons on Iran – watch live

Defence secretary Ben Wallace updates MPs – returning to the House of Commons after their Christmas break – on the latest in the Middle East, following the assassination of Iran military leader Qassem Suleimani last week. He makes the statement in place of Boris Johnson, who is chairing a meeting of the UK national security council to discuss the crisis.

It’s going to be a tense few days for the UK’s political class.

Corbyn and the rest will be praying that the temptation to say something controversial is too great for the President — don’t be surprised if they bait him. And Nigel Farage will probably be sitting around waiting for his brief audience with Trump, reminding everyone — including Johnson — that he has the President’s ear.

The tragedy of Jeremy Corbyn: He has betrayed left Euroscepticism. And for Remainers it’s still not enough.

If Labour wins the next election, it will hold a second referendum. The choice would be between staying in the EU and ‘leaving’ via a tweaked version of Theresa May’s withdrawal deal – that is, between Remain and Remain By Another Name. Whoever wins that rigged referendum, Brexit would lose. This internal spat is over which flavour of betrayal to recommend to the electorate, and when might be best to announce that preference.

Backing A Second Referendum Could Finish Labour At The Ballot Box

On the biggest issue in British politics, Labour promised one thing before the election and then did the complete opposite afterwards. The last party that performed such an outrageous U-turn was the Liberal Democrats over tuition fees, and they were rightly destroyed in the following election.

Labour is now possibly facing that same oblivion.

As of this morning, just under five million Labour Leave voters are homeless. I’m sure The Brexit Party will be delighted.

10.07.2019 - 20:55 [ Spectator ]

Why the Labour party deserves to be destroyed

Already Labour are below 20 per cent in some general election polls and it is hard to see how they will survive a four-way squeeze in any snap election.

The only thing that might avoid this doomsday scenario is if the Tories manage to take the UK out of the EU by 31st October. Given that the dreadful withdrawal agreement is now dead in the water, that means, somewhat ironically, only a ‘no deal’ Brexit can save Labour.

Are both May and Corbyn prepared to risk splitting their parties?

The irony of the stalemate in the cross-party Brexit talks is that Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn are not that far apart on the issue, as I say in The Sun this morning. They might use different language, but what they want is really quite similar.

But while they may not be that far apart, their parties are. A deal would require not one of them, but both of them to be prepared to split their parties.

(2.4.2019) When Theresa May stood in 10 Downing Street earlier this evening and announced that she would try and break the Brexit logjam by liaising with Jeremy Corbyn, she gave the impression of speaking with Cabinet backing. However, the full story is now emerging. In a stormy seven-hour meeting, minister after minister protested at her proposal to use Labour votes for a softer Brexit ( potentially a customs union) in order to pass a deal. As many as 14 ministers said they’d rather keep no deal on the table. It seems that only about ten supported her final plan.

The Labour Party is at the Rubicon. The first agenda item at the inaugural Labour Party conference of February 28, 1900, was “Object of conference: a resolution in favour of working-class opinion being represented in the House of Commons.”

Even in that first debate, the new leaders made clear that the appeal would need to be beyond the traditional working classes and should not be to encompass the concept of “class war”.

But it set up a political party whose reason for existence was entirely centred on giving voice and vote to working-class opinion.

Sparks fly at Parliamentary Labour Party meeting on second referendum

According to Owen Smith, Corbyn was asked 23 times if in a future referendum he would want Remain to be an option on the ballot paper. Corbyn declined to answer. Matters weren’t helped by a late night vote which meant the meeting came to an abrupt end. However, a briefing note has since been circulated among Labour MPs suggesting Remain would be on the ballot paper in the event of a second referendum.

Backing a second referendum could definitively end Jeremy Corbyn’s chances of becoming PM

If Jeremy Corbyn is about to win lots of new friends as a result of his announcement that he could, after all, back another referendum on Brexit, he also risks making a lot of his core voters very unhappy indeed.

Emily Thornberry Says Second Referendum Should Be Between PM’s Deal Or Remain

The shadow foreign secretary said Labour’s second referendum bid should be a choice between Theresa May’s Brexit deal or remaining in the EU.

Emily Thornberry added that in the event there was another vote, she would campaign for Remain.

Labour is a dead party walking

Backing a second referendum is one betrayal too many.

In day of U-turns, Theresa May considers delaying Brexit while Labour’s Corbyn backs second referendum

Theresa May is considering a plan to delay Brexit and stop the U.K. leaving the European Union with no deal next month, according to people familiar with the situation.

The prime minister is expected to allow her Cabinet to discuss extending the deadline beyond March 29 at a crunch meeting on Tuesday, one of the people said.

5 million @UKLabour voters voted to Leave what a total fucking betrayal of Labour voters like myself who have voted @UKLabour at every election incl local elections for 36yrs, NEVER AGAIN Labour only now exist for middle classes & no longer represent their core working class vote

It would be a terrible mistake if the Labour Party campaigned to stop #Brexit. Imagine having to confront working class voters afterwards. #LeftBrexitTour

The lengths the British political establishment will go to in order not to implement the electorate’s democratic decision is staggering: – challenging govt in courts – tabling wrecking amendments – breaking up their parties – telling people to vote again

25.02.2019 - 20:58 [ peter jackson ‏/ Twitter ]

Corbyn is a traitor to the labour voters.

Labour, once the party of the patriotic working class, siding with those that say we got it wrong. That we were duped. That we were ‘tricked, lied to, and conned’, that say we cant make up our own minds about Britain’s political future. How bloody sad.

The Labour party are a farce, and a this decision is a disgrace for @jeremycorbyn and @UKLabour For the few not the many.

25.02.2019 - 20:25 [ @ThomasEvansSDP / Twitter ]

The Labour Party have now completed their betrayal of their Leave vote in a desperate attempt to win back support from the Independent Group by endorsing a second referendum. Considering how many Leave constituencies hold Labour MPs, this is an absolute disgrace!

Labour announce backing for a second Brexit referendum

Labour have announced they will back a second referendum on Britain’s EU exit to prevent a „damaging Tory Brexit being forced on the country“.

25.02.2019 - 20:13 [ POLITICO Europe/ Twitter ]

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will tell MPs that the party will back a second Brexit referendum „to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit“

25.02.2019 - 13:30 [ Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party / Twitter ]

Theresa May is putting the country at risk by recklessly running down the clock to force MPs to choose between her bad deal and a disastrous No Deal. Labour will work with MPs across the Commons to prevent No Deal, break the deadlock and build support for our alternative plan.

Corbyn: „The EU is very worried about the consequences of no deal. That’s why we are determined to take it off the table.“ Erm, does anyone in Labour understand how negotiations actually work?

Well guys, looks like there;s to be a full frontal attack on Labour party members and supporters, and on @jeremycorbyn from all sides today @Conservatives, The Tinge group, the Labour right/centrists in the guise of Tom Watson, AND the @BBCPolitics and @AndrewMarr9 himself

Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour is a crucial ally in the fight against antisemitism .. Over 200 Jewish members and supporters of the Labour party sign a letter urging that anyone seeking an end to bigotry and racism should back Labour and Corbyn

The future of Venezuela is a matter for Venezuelans. @Jeremy_Hunt’s call for more sanctions on Venezuela is wrong. We oppose outside interference in Venezuela, whether from the US or anywhere else. There needs to be dialogue and a negotiated settlement to overcome the crisis.

The Independent Group can’t survive just on anti-Corbyn hatred

The clue is in the name. Only their acquired independence from Corbyn truly unites them — otherwise, what is there? It is true that all seven are, to greater or lesser degrees, pro-Remain and in favour of a second referendum. But that disposition scarcely distinguishes them in a House of Commons already sizeably (by about two-thirds) pro-Remain: it is therefore a scant selling point. Why not join the Lib Dems, if that is your chief opposition to Corbyn?

Millions are facing the misery of poverty wages, a housing crisis and insecure work. They don’t need splits, divisions or Chuka’s coalition with the Lib Dems and Tories. They need a radical Labour government. With Jeremy Corbyn they will get one.

Jeremy, stay true to your principles

Consensus is emerging within the Parliamentary Labour Party, however, around Jeremy’s proposal for an EU-wide customs union. This would include a customs-union code and a common external tariff. But this proposal needs closer scrutiny.

If this position were to be adopted, the UK would not be able to develop an independent trade policy after Brexit, as doing so would be illegal under the Treaty of Rome. The UK would not have taken back control of its trade. Our capacity to trade would be regulated and controlled by an authority over which we would have no control, influence or rights.

13.02.2019 - 10:55 [ spiked / Twitter ]

Jeremy Corbyn is right to block a second referendum. But his Soft Brexit stance would still betray Brexit voters by keeping us in the EU in all but name. He should stand up for Labour’s great tradition of Euroscepticism, writes @BrendanChilton

Theresa May agrees to hold fresh talks with Jeremy Corbyn over his plans for a soft Brexit

In a letter to the Labour leader, the Prime Minister did not rule out Mr Corbyn’s demand for a „permanent“ customs union although she said it would present a „negotiating challenge“.

She also agreed to talks on Mr Corbyn’s call for „close alignment“ with the Single Market, as well as committing to asking Parliament if it wishes to follow EU rules on workers‘ rights and environment standards​.​
