    Mayor of Heanor in Derbyshire and Labour district councillor Sheila Oakes had responded to a Facebook post in a party group asking people to say a “little prayer” to Prime Minister Johnson who was admitted to the intensive care unit of St Thomas’ hospital in London on Monday after his condition had worsened. Miss Oakes had written on the social media platform: “Sorry, he completely deserves this, and he is one of the worst PMs we’ve ever had.” After backlash on social media, the Amber Valley Labour Group withdrew the party whip from Oakes, and she is no longer a...

    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...
  • Jeremy Corbyn says US killing of Qassem Soleimani was 'illegal' and refuses FOUR TIMES to call the Iranian general a terrorist

    Jeremy Corbyn last night refused four times to say Qassem Soleimani was a terrorist — and described his killing by the US as “illegal”. The Labour leader also criticized the killing in the House of Commons after previously writing a letter to Boris Johnson asking for an urgent Privy Council briefing about the US assassination of top Iranian General Soleimani last Friday. He asked for evidence and clarification that proved Soleimani was a threat — but the Prime Minister rejected his request yesterday. Speaking to Sky News last night, Mr. Corbyn was asked four times whether he believed Soleimani had...
  • Hard-left Labour leadership candidate Rebecca Long Bailey gives Jeremy Corbyn a '10 out of 10' for election campaign that saw party plunge to its worst defeat EVER

    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.

    "Blowout" was how one UK newspaper described the decisive victory of Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party in last week's election. How decisive was it? Not only did conservatives win an 80-seat majority in Parliament, a constituency in Blythe Valley in Northeast England elected a conservative member for the first time since its creation 40 years ago. Pundits leading up to the election were wrong, as usual. They predicted a very tight race. What is it about pundits that they are so often wrong, including in the U.S., but they get to keep prognosticating anyway? The election was viewed as...

    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...

    Ken Livingstone said tonight's brutal election result is "the end" for Jeremy Corbyn - and appeared to blame "the Jewish vote" for contributing to the losses. The former Labour MP and Mayor of London, said his friend and ally Jeremy Corbyn had paid the price for several aspects of his campaign, including not taking more action against anti-semitism. "The Jewish vote wasn't very helpful," Mr Livingstone said "Jeremy should have tackled that issue far earlier than he did. "It looks like the end for Jeremy, which is disappointing for me since I'm a close ally. I'm sure he'll have to...

    Back when Donald Trump was running for president — and Republicans were still capable of feeling politically ashamed — a conservative friend made what was, to my mind, the decisive case against voting for him. No, a ballot for Trump did not automatically mean that his voters shared his bigotries. Nor did it necessarily mean that they weren’t embarrassed by them. It just meant that those bigotries weren’t deal-breakers. If their candidate was a birther, they could live with it. If he thought celebrity was a license for sexual predation, they could live with it. If he wanted to impose...

    Jeremy Corbyn's top team asked some of Britain's best-known stars to send pro-Labour tweets to millions of social media followers to encourage their fans to vote for the party, a stand-up comedian revealed today. The alleged ploy emerged as millions voted today in Britain's most important election for a generation - with their decision expected to make-or-break Brexit. If turnout is confirmed as being high as queues suggested this morning, it could spell danger for Boris Johnson amid fears a 'youthquake' of young and first-time voters is boosting Labour's vote. But this is an election like no other in recent...

    BORIS Johnson has appeared to have achieved the impossible by taking back Labour heartlands as early general elections polls today revealed voting intentions for the north west of England have shifted to Tory paving the way for a landslide win thanks to support from the south and the Midlands. Pollster YouGov showed Labour support is collapsing in the north, with prominent industrial counties - some of which that have voted Labour for decades - Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside now jumping ship to Tory in a spectacular show of support for the Brexiteer Prime Minister.

    The Corbynization of the Democratic Party continues apace, as progressive superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter on Thursday to endorse UK Labour leader — and noted anti-Semite — Jeremy Corbyn for Prime Minister. They're a good fit, I suppose. Both AOC and Corbyn share socialist views of economic "justice," and both represent the far-left wings of political parties increasingly hostile to Jews. The young bartender-turned-congresscritter retweeted a Labour campaign video, and also added, "The hoarding of wealth by the few is coming at the cost of peoples’ lives. The only way we change is with a massive surge of *new*...

    Finally, after three and a half long, painful years of dithering and complete failure to enact the will of the British people expressed in the historic Referendum of June 2016 where they voted to LEAVE the European Union, Boris has won, and won big. “Get Brexit Done” was the Conservative leader’s campaign slogan and the public in many ways just wanted it put behind them so they could move on. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/12/466771/

    Boris Johnson is on course for an historic landslide victory in the 2019 general election after an exit poll predicted an 86-seat Conservative majority The Tories are predicted to win 368 seats – 50 up on 2017 – in their best result since 1987. On a catastrophic night for Labour, Jeremy Corbyn’s party was predicted to end the day with just 191 seats, down 71 on the last election in their worst result since 1935. If the prediction proves to be correct, it will mean the Prime Minister can forge ahead with his plan to get Britain out of the...

    Jeremy Corbyn has announced plans to resign as leader of the Labour Party following the party's crushing defeat in Thursday's general election. Speaking after his reelection as a member of Parliament for Islington North, he said he would remain in his post while the party "reflected" on the result but would not lead the party into another general election. "I will not lead the party in any future general-election campaign," he said. "I will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going...

    WASHINGTON — Always beware of drawing conclusions from one country’s election to another. But it’s also hard to ignore that the results in Britain last night were bad news for Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and America’s left — just 52 days before the Iowa caucuses. On Thursday, unpopular Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Conservative Party trounced even more unpopular socialist Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, with Labour having its worst general-election performance in three decades. Make no mistake: Neither Sanders nor Warren are as unpopular as Corbyn is in his country; in fact, Sanders and Warren have similar...

    Far-left British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn announced that he plans to resign as leader of the party after it was blown out by the Conservative Party in the U.K. General Election. Corbyn’s decision to step down comes after Conservatives dominated the election winning 368 seats, giving them an 86 seat majority, while the Labour Party only won 191 seats. “I want to also make it clear that I will not lead the party in any future general election campaign,” Corbyn said.
