The Blairites are turning the Labour party into a NASTY PARTY

Lies about homophobia, lying about windows in a Labour office being broken and Alastair Campbell's PR team spewing out lies and smearing campaign.

Angela Eagle homophobia claims ‘completely untrue’

Corbyn News reports: 

Speaking on Daily Politics, Baroness Tessa Jowell said members of Labour’s Parliamentary Party had been subjected to “intimidation, abuse and fear” in the wake of a recent vote of no confidence in Mr Corbyn.

She also claimed that Ms Eagle had suffered anti-gay abuse from members of the pro-Corbyn group Momentum at a constituency meeting in Wallasey.
“I spoke to Angela about her meeting,” Baroness Jowell said. “She faced homophobic abuse at that meeting.”

However, several of those who attended the meeting have refuted the accusation – claiming that Ms Eagle was not even at the meeting in question.

Kathy Runswick – Chair of the Wallasey Constituency – told PinkNews that the allegation was “completely untrue”.
“Angela Eagle was not at the Wallasey Labour Party AGM and thus could not have ‘faced homophobic abuse’,” she added.

“There is zero tolerance of homophobia in Wallasey Labour Party, and the Constituency Labour Party will now fully investigate these new allegations.

Ms Runswick also claimed that “when the meeting took place, Angela was still in the Shadow Cabinet, and was apparently fully supportive of Jeremy Corbyn.

Kathy Miller – Wallasey CLP Secretary – told PinkNews that the accusations were “extremely upsetting”.

“The discussion at the meeting was very supportive of Angela and asked her to continue with that position,” she said.

“On a personal basis I was also at the Wallasey CLP AGM meeting, and witnessed no such homophobic behaviour – if I had of witnessed it I would have challenged it immediately.
“I’ve been an active campaigner for gay rights all of my life, my son is gay, we as a family have had to deal with homophobic abuse and I find these allegations extremely upsetting.”

PinkNews has reached out to Ms Eagle’s office regarding Baroness Jowell’s claims but is yet to receive a response.

Private Eye reminds us of Angela Eagle’s highly dubious origins

Wirral in it together reports: 
On learning about this prospect a couple of weeks back, some locals found it surprising, and much more found it astonishing, given that she’d scraped a very poor 4th in the poll for deputy leader, conducted in the summer of 2015.  Jeremy Corbyn, the current leader, and the man she’s challenging for that leadership breezed home superbly well with a virtual 60% mandate from members – a new record.  This was followed by solid by-election successes and a huge rise in membership which continues to this day.

A small crumb of comfort for Angela was that her own Wallasey branch of the local Constituency Labour Party had graciously nominated her for deputy (a nomination that still stands) and selected Corbyn, whom she seemed supportive of at the time, to be a leader.

But how did Angela repay her local members’ and Corbyn’s loyalty and backing?

By throwing it back in their faces, going against her own recent approval of Corbyn and by claiming that he lacked the leadership to win an election. 

So what’s changed in the meantime? What’s behind this amazing transformation from Corbyn backing deputy leader no-hoper to burgeoning leadership candidate and potential Prime Minister – who all of a sudden despises Corbyn?

Very little from our vantage point.

And after failing with the deputy bid, how ironic to set it out under a banner screaming “Real Leadership”, with the predictable backing of the BBC and mainstream media?

We have very long memories and can still recall the time in 1992 when Bridlington-born Angela first set a tentative toe in Wallasey.

Firstly, we need to set the scene by briefly describing what had been going on politically in this town, a stalwart Tory seat under Ernest Marples and later Lynda Chalker.  Following a spirited campaign, the iron grip of the Tories had been loosened and virtually broken by Lol Duffy and team in the run-up to the 1987 general election, against all the odds.  And when we say odds … what was very odd was the behaviour of a very panicky Frank Field in neighbouring Birkenhead.

Upon hearing that the May election in Wallasey was getting too close to call, he went public, encouraging the town’s electorate not to vote Labour – to vote Tory – anything to prevent the popular people’s choice winning it.  This was at a time when Neil Kinnock and Roy Hattersley were conducting a national witch hunt to purge the party of persons they regarded as ‘too left wing’.  So forget about Lol and his campaigners achieving a 40 % rise in Labour’s fortunes.  At Walworth Road, the Labour Party’s HQ, paranoia swept all before it.

It seemed the dirty deed done by Field had the desired result.  If 280 more people had voted for Lol Duffy, he would have unseated Tory Lynda Chalker.

Over to a 1992 article in Private Eye for a concise summary of the 1992 Wallasey candidacy, where the rulebook was frantically torn up by Kinnock.  Lol Duffy was excluded, previously unheard of Angela Eagle was secretly slotted in and put in a position where she could profit from Lol and his team’s achievements five years earlier, all against the local public’s wishes:

 lol duffy excluded private eye

lol Duffy excluded private eye

And here we are now in 2016, with Blair supporting Angela Eagle’s dubious origins long forgotten, and with the slotted in Wallasey MP perhaps on the brink of gaining the Labour Party leadership.

But how curiously reticent she is about the details of what happened in 1992 – if her write up on http://www.angela4leader.org* is anything to go by:

As readers can now appreciate, in Wallasey we are very poorly served.  And please be warned. Let’s not make the mistake of extending that poor service to the whole country.

Hilary Benn lies about Corbyn MP's bulling Blairite MP's 

Labour coup plotters protected by media giant tied to Blairite PR firm, linked to coup

A Sky News report identifying three senior Labour Party whips as the Blairite “choreographers” of Labour opposition to Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership was inexplicably self-censored on Monday. But the censorship comes as little surprise given Sky News’ longstanding connections to a powerful PR firm tied to former Prime Minister Tony Blair. The firm, Portland Communications, is not only directly connected to the Labour coup plotters but had anticipated a Shadow Cabinet “mass resignation” contingency plan to oust Corbyn at least six months ago – long before the EU referendum results.
The Canary reports:
Five paragraphs identifying the Blairite ringleaders of the coup were deleted from a Sky News report minutes after being quoted in an investigation by The Canary.
The Canary reported that the individuals identified were part of a wider network of Blairite elites affiliated with the Fabian Society, who have seen Jeremy Corbyn’s landslide victory in Labour leadership elections as a direct threat to the New Labour ‘old guard’ in the party.
On Tuesday afternoon, Labour Party MPs passed a 172-40 vote of no confidence against Corbyn’s leadership of the party. Corbyn refused to resign on grounds that doing so would be unconstitutional and that he would “not betray” the Labour members who voted for him.
While many of the MPs who have risen against Corbyn’s leadership are not themselves Blairite, The Canary’sinvestigation on Monday revealed that the core instigators of the mutiny are part of a pro-Blair ‘old guard’, who have carefully orchestrated the party’s uprising against Corbyn.
Yet shortly after the publication of our story, including passages quoted from Sky News identifying core instigators of the mass resignations, Sky News updated its report with a new version of the article, in which those passages were removed.
The earlier version of the Sky News report, which has now been completely scrubbed from all published versions available online, suggested that the sudden uprising was not spontaneous, but carefully planned.
The report quoted Sky News political correspondent Sophy Ridge accusing one of Corbyn’s own whips, Conor McGinn MP, of coordinating the resignations to “try to cause maximum impact”:
Meanwhile, the party’s leaders in the Lords – Baroness Smith of Basildon, Labour leader in the Lords, and Lord Bassam, the chief whip – are likely to boycott shadow cabinet meetings while Mr Corbyn remains, a spokesman for the House of Lords said.
Former shadow education secretary Lucy Powell, who resigned on Sunday, insisted the resignations were not a ‘planned coup’ against Mr Corbyn, but a reaction to the ‘seismic’ events which have shaken Westminster in recent days.
But Sky’s Senior Political Correspondent Sophy Ridge said she understood that the man choreographing the resignations is Conor McGinn, Labour MP for St Helens North.
She said: ‘He’s ringing shadow cabinet members and ministers, organising the timings and co-ordinating the resignations to try to cause maximum impact.
‘This is significant because he’s one of Jeremy Corbyn’s Whips – tasked with ensuring party discipline.’
