PMQs. Just what more does Jeremy Corbyn have to do?


From the man who calls Hamas and Hezbollah his friends………..

“President Trump has torn up international agreements on refugees, threatened to dump international agreements on climate change. He’s praised the use of torture. He’s incited hatred against Muslims, he’s directly attacked women’s rights.Just what more does the President Trump have to do before the PM will listen to the 1.8m people who’ve already called for the state visit invitation to be withdrawn.”


………………and invited hate preacher Raed Salah to tea at the HoC.




Jeremy Corbyn has befriended ‘internationally deemed terrorist organisations’ who deny women’s rights; he has incited hatred against Israel /Jews, praised Muslim hate preacher Raed Salah and invited him to tea at the House of Commons.

Just what more does Jeremy Corbyn have to do before the BBC devotes even half the resources it uses attacking President Trump, to expose the utter hypocrisy of the Labour leader?

  1. Er Jez, I know you're quite relaxed about postal ballot fiddling, but this online petition business... just how many of those signed up were a) geographically valid b) not bot generated ?

  2. I saw PMQs today and I thought the panel on Daily Politics would turn their attention to this issue. But they didn't. Laughter was the order of the day. The use of jokey content is clearly designed to divert attention away from Corbyn's below-par performance.

    1. Merry japes in the EU parliament too. I wonder if the BBC will be homing in on what is true and what is lie according to Labour MEP Sebby the Signer, or will professional courtesy and their always flexible #editorialintegrity again see the memory hole applied?

  3. The people that have supposedly petitioned in Brighton, for and against, is more than 10% of the constituents thus far. Quite frankly, that's fantastical beyond belief.

  4. Takes real talent to make Emily Thornbury cringe with embarrassment

    1. Our impartial state broadcaster has been reminding us several times a day of the existence of the petition to block President Trump's state visit - have you noticed the way the Beeboid's faces light up as they tell us the latest tally? Just what will it take for them to admit to the existence of a counter-petition being signed by those who wish the visit to go ahead. At the moment it has 230,000+ signatures - this without any free advertising from the BBC! It has to be said that the petition could be better worded, but at least it is there.

  6. Sorry, sue, but the Beeboids will have to come to terms with their own hypocrisy on these same issues first before they'll notice Corbyn's.

  7. See the BBC website for the "he's lying to you" poster / note. This is clear bias surely.

  8. And Jeremiad seems to have no problem with his London Mayor and party college meeting up with 11 countries that ban Jews from entering them and one that is now using medical screening to stop Gay people at the border ? odd little man

    1. I am not in any way trying to justify Labour's hypocrisy, which is plain to see, but I do think it is important to be accurate. The ban applies specifically to Israeli jews. The acquiescence to Islamic anti-Semitism by the left is a disgrace, as is the ban itself, but we can’t accuse the BBC of lying by omission if we are not scrupulous about our own statements.

    2. Agreed. It's worth pointing out, too, that of the seven countries on Trump's list, only Somalia does not refuse entry to Israelis. Of the remaining six countries, five refuse entry to passport holders of ANY country if the passport has an Israeli visa.

    3. The BBC has no problem with a boycott against Israel. The moral equivalency is practically part of their editorial policy now. The BDS movement is very strong among BBC staff, so they will not be able to see a problem with Corbyn cozying up to Muslim countries that ban Jews.

      Remember, it's wrong to associate all Muslims everywhere with Islamic terrorism, but it's correct to associate all Jews with Israel's acts. That's what underlies all of this.

  9. The difference between Trump and Corbyn: 1) Trump is the President of the United States. His absurd/inflammatory ideas, comments and affiliations now matter. Not to mention his cartoon persona. All of which makes him ripe for the news media, which is no less part of the entertainment industry than is Coronation Street. Not to mention a welcome (for who?) distraction from domestic issues such as Brexit and the NHS. 2) Corbyn is the leader of the opposition Labour Party. He has succeeded in rendering said Party an unpopular, divided and altogether impotent opposition. With his personality having all the appeal of a stale Weetabix doused in urine, there is no news value in attacking a man who has no chance of being relevant.

    1. I would tend to agree, but the hysteria over Trump that has been fanned, in no small part by the BBC, renders any objective critique of his Presidency invalid.

    2. BBC Newsbeat has become a parody.

      My boys, their target audience , think they are deranged.

      Still, ever on the pulse, Samira is going after an editor about Nigel obsession. again. Ironically.
