Blairites have started another Corbyn coup


Labour First has appointed its first full-time organiser as it steps up its push for a “mainstream and electable” party.


The centre-left group recruited London activist Matt Pound after a strong response to its pre-Christmas fundraising appeal.
It comes after Labour First set out plans to “counteract” Momentum in constituency Labour parties (CLPS) around the country. Labour First and other groups opposed to Jeremy Corbyn are concerned about proposals for a controversial rule change which would make it easier for MPs to get on the ballot for a future leadership election with only a handful of supporters.
Now Labour First has said it is within £3,000 of its £40,000 fundraising target.
“Over 450 people donated! This will hugely increase our capacity as we have previously relied entirely on volunteers – though of course me and other voluntary campaigners intend to work just as hard as before, but with the benefit of professional support,” wrote secretary Luke Akehurst in a message to supporters at the start of the week.
The group has appointed Pound, a member in Streatham in south London, who has worked for MP Toby Perkins and previously John Spellar.
Pound, a politics graduate from the University of Liverpool, is due to start work on Monday.
One of the first internal battles of the year will be when differing wings of the party seek to have their supporters elected as delegates for party conference.
Centre-left Labour members are opposing a rule change which allow any candidate to run for the leadership with the support of just five per cent – 13 signatures – of MPs and MEPs, It has been described by Corbynsceptic activists as the “McDonnell amendment”, amid suggestions John McDonnell could one day stand after Corbyn steps down, but the shadow chancellor has repeatedly denied that he wishes to do so.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
