    Attends indoor event surrounded by thousands of maskless people.. An MP who claimed she felt “unsafe” around people who don’t wear masks proudly posted maskless photos of herself to Twitter enjoying a party surrounded by people not wearing masks. Whoops. “I feel incredibly unsafe in the chamber,” when Tories don’t wear masks Labour MP Zarah Sultana stated during a recent BBC News interview. ... Those fears were apparently absent when Sultana visited the MOBO awards in Coventry, during which she was photographed in close proximity to others at an indoor event attended by thousands. “The @MOBOAwards came to Coventry last...

  • (UK) Too many white men putting their hands up to speak, Labour delegates told

    During a debate on housing and transport, the chairman of the session noted the people putting their hands up to contribute did “not reflect the diversity” of those in the hall. Mark Ferguson, a member of Labour’s National Executive Committee, told delegates in Brighton: “I am afraid, and I am not speaking from a position of particular strength here, there are too many white men putting their hands up.” To laughter, he added: “I am not anti-white men, some of my favourite people are – my dad’s a white man. “But I do not want white men to exclusively dominate...

    A charity named after Winston Churchill has provoked fury by rebranding itself amid concerns over his views on race. The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has removed pictures of the wartime leader from its website and is changing its name to the Churchill Fellowship. Volunteers at the trust said it was 'rewriting history'. One told The Sun: 'He was voted, by the people, as the Greatest Briton in a BBC poll in 2002 but is now erased from his own charity by the woke brigade. ... ...Controversies surrounding his rule include whether he could have acted more decisively to prevent the...

    As the situation of the migrants on hunger strike in Brussels worsens, French-speaking socialist party PS and green party Ecolo have threatened to quit the federal government if any one of the activists dies, which would result in the current government falling. Both parties have informed Prime Minister Alexander De Croo that the ministers and secretaries of state will resign, which would see the government De Croo I losing its majority as part of the Vivaldi coalition. During the core cabinet meeting on Monday morning, federal Economy and Labour minister Pierre-Yves Dermagne warned that the PS ministers and secretaries of...

    Labour’s Shadow Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary David Lammy listed heavyweight boxing legend Joe Frazier alongside Judas Iscariot and the KKK in a bizarre Good Friday message. “Good Friday so thinking about Judas who sold out his brother for 30 pieces of silver.” “Sure many of us can think a Judas amidst us,” he continued. “Keep the faith: ‘There is no Jesus without Judas, no Martin Luther King without the Klan; no Ali without Joe Frazier; no freedom without tyranny'”. The decision to list the late Frazier, a heavyweight world champion who brought an Olympic gold medal back to the...

    FRANK BRUNO once set out an ambitious bid to become an MP, just four years after reportedly promising to "leave the UK" if Labour was voted in.The former heavyweight boxer said he wanted to contest the traditionally safe Conservative seat of Brentwood and Ongar. Currently held by Trudy Harrison, Bruno was ready to go toe-to-toe against independent MP Martin Bell in the 2001 general election. He later stated that he would be standing as a Tory against Mr Bell, telling the public: "Don't be a plank, vote for Frank." EU citizens rush to NORTHERN Ireland as vaccine standoff escalates The...

    Sadiq Khan has conceded that, under his now almost five-year-long mayoralty, the streets of London are “not safe” for women and girls. Mayor Khan, who under the terms of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 fulfils the role of Police and Crime Commissioner in the British capital — excluding, somewhat confusingly for outsiders, the City of London, or Square Mile, which has its own police force — made the comments in an appearance on LBC radio. “London’s streets are not safe for women, are they?” the presenter asked the Labour politician, following news that a serving Metropolitan Police...

    Fruity cargo cult Apple has been hit by another child labour scandal, this time involving its Pegatron supplier. The Financial Times discovered that Pegatron used thousands of student interns working overtime to assemble iPhones in breach of Chinese law. The Tame Apple Press has been doing its best to make Apple appear the good guy in the scandal saying that Jobs’ Mob had “reprimanded” Pegatron. After being contacted by the FT, Apple said it had stopped giving "new business" to Pegatron, its second-largest iPhone assembler after Foxconn. Strangely though, Pegatron does not appear to have received the memo and workers...
  • UK's Labour Party suspends former leader Jeremy Corbyn after anti-Semitism report

    CNN ^ | Luke McGee and Jack Guy,
    Britain's main opposition Labour party has suspended its former leader Jeremy Corbyn, in a stunning development that followed the release of a damning report by the UK's human rights watchdog. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) on Thursday identified "serious failings" with how Labour dealt with anti-Semitism in the party during Corbyn's time as leader. Corbyn responded to the report by saying that while he condemned anti-Semites, the scale of the problem under his leadership had been "dramatically overstated for political reasons." Those comments drew a swift and dramatic response from the party. "In light of (Corbyn's) comments made...

    Labour's deputy leader has apologised for branding a Conservative MP 'scum' during a heated debate in the Commons on the Covid-19 crisis today, but stopped short of retracting the jibe. Tory backbencher Chris Clarkson demanded an apology from Angela Rayner in a public letter after he suggested that the Labour frontbench was viewing the pandemic as a 'good crisis' to be exploited. However, the hard-Left Corbynite then heckled Mr Clarkson, who asked: 'Excuse me, did the honourable lady just call me scum?'

    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...

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...
