Oh, Jeremy Corbyn: The Big Lie

This afternoon, I saw the wonderful Oh, Jeremy Corbyn: The Big Lie, which does not shy away from Corbyn's own failure to defend himself and his supporters, and which points out that the anti-Semitism scam was only the one that happened to stick of half a dozen smears.

It reminds us of the open threat of a military coup if Corbyn had won, and it posits the likelihood of an assassination. It argues convincingly that Keir Starmer has always been a spycop planted as a saboteur, and it sets out the fact that his unilateral change to Brexit policy deliberately caused both the 2019 General Election and its result.

And it names the original failing of the Corbyn Project, the failure to sack the Labour Party's entire staff on day one and start again from scratch. What a revolting lot those staff were. Their purported workplace was swearier than prison, and I mean that seriously, but full of people who would not have lasted 48 hours in there, likewise.

In the discussion afterwards, I explained that their racism was not news to me, since the one who had used the Angry Black Woman trope against Diane Abbott had been calling me a "Mulatto" online for 20 years, having been imposed as a council candidate over my head because his employer, Hilary Armstrong, had been, as he was, a racist. Peter Kyle is another of her former staffers, so of course he thinks that all brown men are called Muhammad. Ignore Starmer on Dominic Raab unless he expels the people named in the Forde Report.

All of this took place in the belly of the right-wing Labour beast, Stanley Civic Hall. I have no idea how they booked that venue. It was hardly as if the Labour members of Stanley Town Council did not know who they were. But Lanchester will be moving into North Durham, so I would like to thank the Labour Party members who organised this event for such a successful start to my Independent candidacy.

When I tell you that there is going to be a hung Parliament, then you can take that to the bank. I spent the 2005 Parliament saying that it was psephologically impossible for the Heir to Blair's Conservative Party to win an overall majority. I predicted a hung Parliament on the day that the 2017 General Election was called, and I stuck to that, entirely alone, all the way up to the publication of the exit poll eight long weeks later. And on the day that Rishi Sunak became Prime Minister, I predicted that a General Election between him and Starmer would result in a hung Parliament.

To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.


  1. The whole world notices the Labour Files and the Forde Report apart from Britain.

    1. The same goes for Peter Kyle's little racism, a story that Sky News itself has largely suppressed.

  2. You came dressed as a Member of Parliament.

    1. Never let down one's public, darling. Never let down one's public.
