    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...

    There was a huge development in the world of politics this week. And it wasn't impeachment. Boris Johnson, a clone of President Donald Trump, and his Conservative Party, the Republicans of Britain, won in a landslide of epic proportions. This is our canary in the coal mine. It's a surefire preview of what's to come in America next November. I've been busy predicting a Johnson landslide in the United Kingdom on my national radio and TV shows for weeks. How did I know? Because U.K. liberals are clones of the loony, radical, America-hating socialists dominating the Democratic Party in...

    NBC News deserves some credit for publishing this story despite the fact that I’m certain it will make a lot of Bernie Bros angry. Looking at last night’s wipe out of the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn, the piece concludes there might be a lesson there for the American left about the limits of socialism’s appeal: 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    NY Times ^ | December 12, 2019 | Bret Stephens
    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 poll shows...

    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*...

    This is the extraordinary moment an ashen-faced Hugh Grant learned that the Tories were on course for a landslide general election win despite his personal campaign to stop Boris Johnson and scupper Brexit. The outspoken actor, 59, looked crestfallen when the exit poll landed at 10pm last night as he enjoyed wine and food at the Tendido Cero tapas restaurant in Kensington last night. As he saw the woeful performance by Labour and the Lib Dems on polling day, the Love Actually star looked down-trodden with his wife Anna Eberstein. A witness told MailOnline: 'He was constantly staring at his...

    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 Conservatives hold a 15-point lead over Labour just days before polling day, according to the last Opinium poll for the Observer before the election. The Tories appear to have maxed out the number of pro-Leave voters who will support them. However, the poll suggests that Labour is not winning Remain voters over at the speed required to close the gap. Boris Johnson’s party is on 46% of the vote, while Labour remains on 31%. The Lib Dems remain on 13%. The poll suggests that Labour is slowly reclaiming some of the Remain voters who drifted to the Lib Dems....

    The Church of England has become embroiled in a row over whether it should publicly oppose Labour and Liberal Democrat plans to liberalize abortion laws. More than 400 members of the clergy wrote an open letter to senior figures complaining that the political shift would see fetuses classed as “no longer human beings” worthy of legal protection. The letter criticized bishops for not standing up for the church’s official teaching on abortion — that terminating pregnancies in most cases is wrong as the unborn child has the potential to “develop relationships, think, pray, choose and love”. It said members had...

    Boris Johnson has revealed plans to bring back pounds and ounces once Brexit is done as he attacks Jeremy Corbyn as “the most extreme Left-wing candidate produced by the Labour Party in a century” entering Number 10. In a wide-ranging interview with the Daily Mail, the Prime Minister laid out his post-election blueprint to lift the EU ban on imperial measurements and hark back to the old system. He said: “We will bring back that ancient liberty. I see no reason why people should be prosecuted.” The Conservative leader added: “I think the reality is a lot of people are...

    Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is continuing his long-standing feud with President of the United States Donald Trump, claiming the U.S. leader only cares about “White America”. Indulging in the identity politics which have become a staple of the modern Labour Party, Khan accused President Trump of being racist by suggesting that his campaign slogan “America First” really meant “White America First”.

The poll of polls conducted by Electoral Calculus and published in The Telegraph has Mr Johnson’s party polling at 42.8 per cent, giving him 357 seats in the 650-seat lower house while Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party is polling at 30 per cent and is currently predicted to lose 55 seats.

    Nigel Farage’s Brexit election dream was at risk of being dashed on day one of his election campaign yesterday after three candidates quit and he lost support from a major financial backer. The Brexit Party leader came out all guns blazing on Monday claiming he would be unleashing 600 election candidates across the UK. But he was warned by senior Tories that he risked ‘splitting the Leave vote’ before two candidates withdrew over fears the Brexit Party could prevent Boris Johnson getting a majority. A third dropped out for personal reasons. Paul Brothwood stood aside in the marginal Dudley South...
