    The obscure British group that nearly forced Google to drop ads on The Federalist is continuing its efforts to demonetize American conservative media outlets it accuses of publishing inflammatory or racist content. The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), founded in 2019 by Labour party organizers, put out a call for donations Tuesday after NBC News reported that Google was poised to ban The Federalist and Zero Hedge, a libertarian-leaning website, from making money off of Google Ads. CCDH’s affiliate, “Stop Funding Fake News,” claimed on Wednesday that it had pressured Ford, the auto maker, to consider dropping ads on...

    British Labour candidate Keir Starmer, 57, has promised to work to end anti-Semitism within his party, if he is elected its leader. Speaking on BBC One, Starmer said his party "should have done more on anti-Semitism." "If you are anti-Semitic you shouldn’t be in the Labour party. What I would do is lead from the top and say it's my responsibility to deal with it. I wouldn’t say it's for somebody else. I want the files, I want to know the numbers on my desk so that I can monitor this." Starmer also said he argued for automatic expulsion. "It...

    Hard-left Labour contender Rebecca Long Bailey was ridiculed last night after giving Jeremy Corbyn ‘10 out of 10’ for his leadership. The party’s business spokesman lavished praise on the outgoing leader during her campaign launch despite him overseeing Labour’s worst election defeat since 1935. She refused to distance herself from his failed manifesto and insisted the party needed a ‘proud socialist’ to take over.

    So there we have it. It turns out that the British working-class was not, in the end, willing to throw its weight behind a London-centric, youth-obsessed, middle-class party that preached the gospels of liberal cosmopolitanism and class war. Who’d have thought it? Well, me for a start. And plenty of others who had been loyal to the party over many years and desperately wanted to see a Labour government, only to be dismissed as ‘reactionaries’ who held a ‘nostalgic’ view of the working-class. It barely needs saying that these election results are an utter catastrophe for Labour. Labour’s meltdown in...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 13, 2019
    As much as Britain’s election Thursday was a victory to Boris Johnson, the vote also dealt a humiliating defeat to Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Not since 1935 has a Labour candidate fallen so flat with voters, and the reasons are a warning to America’s Democrats. The collapse of Labour’s working-class vote is the main explanation for Mr. Johnson’s win, and the main story of the election. Labour’s “red wall” of districts across the north of England collapsed, with the Tories winning seats so staunchly Labour that the Tories barely campaigned. Some of these areas have voted Labour since before...

    Jeremy Corbyn today vowed to stay on as Labour leader for months as his hard-Left faction fights to keep control of the party despite the disastrous election rout. The veteran MP dismissed calls to step down immediately after overseeing the most catastrophic Labour showing in a poll since 1935. Extraordinarily Mr Corbyn - who will have to face Boris Johnson in what promises to be an humiliating PMQs session next Wednesday - he also rejected the idea his appalling personal ratings and extreme policies were to blame. Labour's tally of MPs was slashed by 59 to just 203 in a...

    Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party is on course for a huge majority in Parliament, according to an exit poll from the UK’s three main broadcasters.

Here’s the exact seat numbers from the exit poll, which predicts a huge Conservative win. 326 seats are needed for a majority. Conservatives: 368 Labour: 191 SNP: 55...

    If Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn wins Britain’s general election on Thursday, he’s promising a remix of British society, with a strong emphasis on raising the lot of Britain’s disenfranchised and forcing tax-dodging corporations and wealthy individuals to pick up part of the tab. Corbyn’s key theme is that decades of unbridled free market capitalism in Britain has created a capitalist elite at the expense of working people, who have seen public services slashed and aspirations dampened. […] While Johnson has taken his party to the right, Corbyn has tacked to the left and endured the departure of some prominent...

    Whoever wins this week's UK election, there's more at stake for businesses and investors than at any time since the 1970s — and it's not all about Brexit. The future of Britain's plan to leave the European Union, which would reverse 46 years of trade and economic integration, could be decided on Thursday. Huge domestic policy change also looms large. Britain's two main political parties both want to increase government spending after a decade of painful austerity under Conservative-led administrations. But opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has pledged to dramatically expand the role of the state and boost public...

    The British election takes place on December 12th and most polls show the Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn trailing Boris Johnson’s Tories. In fact, the most recent poll shows the Tories with an 18 point lead. But things could change dramatically over the next few hours as Johnson and Corbyn debate each other on television. CNN reports that going into the debate with the lead means the pressure will be on Johnson: For the Prime Minister, who enjoys a lead in opinion polls and is preparing to hammer home his well-worn Brexit message, tonight’s debate represents both a...
