Corbyn blows away the Blair/Brown minions

There are high hopes that Corbyn, who is a patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, vice-chair of CND and national chairman of the Stop the War Coalition, will eventually break Britain out of the cycle of servitude to US neo-con and Zionist diktats.

Jeremy Corbyn waves on stage after he is announced as the new leader of The Labour Party during the Labour Party Leadership Conference in London, Saturday.

New Labour leader is smeared by panic-stricken Tories

by Stuart Littlewood

This email went out to hundreds of thousands of people on the Conservatives’ mailing list within hours of Corbyn winning the Labour leadership election on Saturday. It’s all part of the Tories’ attempt to portray Corbyn as a risky choice who poses a threat to the security of ordinary Britain.
This email went out to hundreds of thousands of people on the Conservatives’ mailing list within hours of Corbyn winning the Labour leadership election on Saturday. It’s all part of the Tories’ attempt to portray Corbyn as a risky choice who poses a threat to the security of ordinary Britain.

As expected, the Tory Dirty Tricks Department were ready and waiting to put the boot in. No sooner had news of Jeremy Corbyn’s amazing leadership victory, with nearly 60% of first-choice votes, trickled through than Conservative Central Office began emailing all and sundry with their ludicrous smears.

Tories opening attack on Jeremy Corbyn. It highlights multiple quotes designed to discredit Corbyn in the eyes of the general public.

Corbyn is a serious threat to all the cosy privileges and advantages they hold dear. Michael Fallon, Secretary of State for Defence, led the charge. He declared: “Labour are now a serious risk to our nation’s security, our economy’s security and your family’s security.

“Whether it’s weakening our defences, raising taxes on jobs and earnings, racking up more debt and welfare or driving up the cost of living by printing money – Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party will hurt working people.”

Outside of politics Fallon was CEO of a chain of childrens’ nurseries, so he obviously knows all there is to know about national security and the awful realities of war.

Fallon has already cast himself as an idiot lacking in manners. A few months ago, during the general election campaign, he wrote in The Times (referring to Ed Miliband’s opposition to Trident and claiming he would trade Britain’s national security in a deal with the SNP to get his hands on the keys to Downing Street): “Ed Miliband stabbed his own brother in the back to become Labour leader. Now he is willing to stab the United Kingdom in the back to become prime minister.” This nasty ad hominem attack brought criticism from all sides for demeaning himself and his office.

Among the Tories’ dafter accusations is the old chestnut that Corbyn is a threat to national security because he describes terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas as “friends”.

Since the political wings of Hezbollah and Hamas are not proscribed in the UK, it ought to be possible to welcome them and have a civilized conversation even in Cameron’s warped Britain. Those organizations were set up to resist armed aggression by Israel, a state founded on terror, brutal dispossession and ethnic cleansing – policies it practises to this day. In spite of Israel’s continuing war crimes David Cameron and most of the parliamentary Conservative Party are signed-up Friends of Israel. What’s even more worrying, they repeatedly proclaim undying loyalty and support (including arms supplies) for this rogue foreign power and its crazed leaders, not to mention their nuclear arsenal which they refuse to place under international safeguards.

So who is the real threat to national security? This is an open goal for Labour if it can find the courage under Corbyn’s leadership to expose the Tories’ breathtaking hypocrisy and the shameful influence they have placed themselves under. Ending the paralysis that perpetuates Israel’s exceptionalism and impunity, is long overdue and there are high hopes that Corbyn, who is a patron of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, vice-chair of CND and national chairman of the Stop the War Coalition, will eventually break Britain out of the cycle of servitude to US neo-con and Zionist diktats.

I watched Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Justice, being interviewed on TV this morning. He claimed that Corbyn’s “friends” (referring to Hamas and Hezbollah) didn’t want peace. He would say that, wouldn’t he?

According to Wiki, the Financial Times describes Gove as having “strong neoconservative convictions”. He proposed that the invasion of Iraq would bring peace and democracy both to Iraq and the wider Middle East, and in 2008 claimed that the liberation of Iraq was a foreign policy success. The Jewish Chronicle reported Gove telling 700 supporters at a Jewish fund-raising dinner: “I’m proud to be a friend of Israel…. I was born, will live and die proud to be a Zionist.” So Gove knows all there is to know about being friends with war criminals who are contemptuous of peace.

On the claim that Corbyn regards Bin Laden’s death as “a tragedy”, what he actually said on PressTV was that there had been no attempt to arrest Bin Laden and put him on trial.”This was an assassination attempt, and is yet another tragedy, upon a tragedy, upon a tragedy.” He is not alone in his concern that the US deliberately carried out an extra-judicial execution rather than bring Bin Laden back alive for due process.

Corbyn went on:

“The World Trade Centre was a tragedy, the attack on Afghanistan was a tragedy, the war in Iraq was a tragedy. Tens of thousands of people have died. Torture has come back on to the world stage…. Can’t we learn some lessons from this? Are we just going to sink deeper and deeper?”

As for the accusation that he wants to print money to fund more spending, many of Corbyn’s policies have found favour with prominent economists and commentators. The policies of the Tories on the other hand – and especially quantitative easing for the banks – have hardly been a success for the wider economy.

Corbyn’s nearest rival mustered only 19% of the leadership vote so he has sufficient mandate to silence the plotters who previously threatened to stage a coup if he won.

“Things can and they will change,” he promised in his acceptance speech. His immediate message to supporters, after becoming leader, was this: “What do you want to ask David Cameron? Tell me now and I will put your questions to him in parliament. My questions will be your questions. Let’s hold this government to account together with straight-talking, honest politics.”

Good move, Jeremy. Let me think……..

  1. So far, so good, but it is crucial to expose the “powers behind the throne” (yes, including, of course “the Throne”) The country needs to wake up, but there is little point in dwelling on the nastiest Tories, the DailyMailite core and the “quality” in the Torygraph and the Murdoch empire. Such are irredeemable.

    What just might push a substantial proportion of sympathisers for”LibDems” “Greens” etc to back Corbyn could be a piece by piece analysis of how to break the power of the Establishment.

    Rail nationalisiation is one area; the NHS, and, I believe ,although it has gone far, schools; energy companies etc.

    In short, several “socialist” policies are very likely vote-winners, but need to be pressed tirelessly. It is sad that the Blairites will do all they can to sabotage Corbyn, even if not transparently, Boldness is the only way to progress, so that increasingly, people will see that the Tories have no clothes.

  2. Hehe
    Even in Norway, the land of the mountain monkeys they are in fistel already, and the dooms day senariois plentifull, and of course all asumptions, as mutch as I just asume.
    Not that I am against this person nor The Trump, but reality have smeared my balls up against the wall so many times I gett cynicall.

    I dont belive jackshit before I see it, period,
    Syriza anyone.
    A sham and a shame.

    Hezb and Hamas are to orgs whom havent done anything wrong, abolutelly nothing, all their fights is and have been fully legitimate, by all standards.
    What the MSM makes them to we all know about, and no matter how mutch we are been spoonfeed their perseptions, we all know they lie all the time.

    Infact Both are orgs whom have despite the odds against them, the rethoric and al the lies, have been rock steady.

    Taxes, well, the City of Londons massive amount of hughe corps dont pay tax at all dont they, so what is it then, pay or leave, the Brits will not notise any difference exept the white collar jobbs, the parasittic entety called Banks and Financial casion corps, dont pay taxes them either.
    This lesser tax for the ritch have been and is one massive f…. ilution.
    The inflation is fully managable, just wipe the large one away, diversify the powergridd and start the Coal mines.

    But I dont think this will ever happend, because the pwers that rules never gives away their powers, unless its taken out of their could dead hands.

    Time will tell, right now, the sun is coming thrue and I dont waist a minute more on what The politicians say, what comes we dont know, but the truth will eventually manifest it self.

    peace

    • The Controversy of Zion By: Douglas Reed is significant of the powers of Zionism that Douglas Reed was destroyed by their attacks and his career as a journalist was brought to an end because of the things he wrote; and it took twenty years before a publisher would touch this book. But, as a minimum, one should read the Preface By Ivor Benson, scan some of the text and, definitely, read the Epilogue!

      It still does not get wide distribution, is not well known, and Googling Douglas Reed does not show up much more than diatribe and condemnation of him as an avid anti-Semite, the usual and most effective Zionist counterattack! I would say he was literally tried in a kangaroo court, hung, quartered, and left hanging out to dry!

      Personally, I find no fault in his work. He seems to have called it like it was, and provided sufficient reference and attribution to back his words. You will note that the attacks which took him down, and disenfranchised him, did not respond to his work, but only attacked the person, by innuendo and name-calling. The same tactic used most recently on Jimmy Carter. ( Former President of the United States: James Earl Carter) and other Noble Peace laureates that dare defend the Palestinian peoples struggle for Freedom in their Homeland.
