British MEPs Hit Back at EU Parliament Stupidity

Today in the European Parliament the moderators of the session decided to pick the pettiest of fights with British MEPs. First they took issue with disillusioned Green MEP Magid Magid for wearing a hat, then they had a go at Scottish Brexit Party MEP Louis Stedman-Bryce for using the word “rubbish”. Seriously…

Neither of them were prepared to take it lying down, Magid laid into them and even had the Brexit Party MEPs applauding in support, before Stedman-Bryce pointed out the blatant hypocrisy of proscribing “rubbish” when the Lib Dems swanned around with “bollocks to Brexit” plastered all over themselves. Naturally they just cut his microphone off, EU democracy in action…

Theresa May uses last speech as Prime Minister to hit out at Boris Johnson and blasts ‘gutter’ populists

THERESA May today warned Boris Johnson a No Deal Brexit is unacceptable and called on the new PM to embrace “compromise”.

The outgoing Prime Minister used her final speech to hit out at her likely successor and his threat to leave the EU without a deal.

And she attacked populists such as Donald Trump, blaming them for “coarsening our public debate” and leaving politics “in the gutters”.

Speaking in Central London, Mrs May insisted it was vital to deliver Brexit but warned the next PM would fail if they took a hardline No Deal stance.

She said: “Whatever path we take must be sustainable for the long-term – so that delivering Brexit brings our country back together. That has to mean some kind of compromise.

“Some argue I should have taken the United Kingdom out of the European Union with No Deal on March 29. Some wanted a purer version of Brexit. Others to find a way of stopping it altogether.

“But most people across our country had a preference for getting it done with a deal.

“The problem was that when it came time for Parliament to ratify the deal, our politics retreated back into its binary pre-referendum positions – a winner-takes-all approach to leaving or remaining.”

LAST BLAST

Mrs May also slammed the senior Brexiteers who demanded that she quit in return for supporting her withdrawal agreement.

She blasted: “I put my own job on the line. I was told that if I said I would stand down then the votes would come behind the deal.

“I said I would stand down and I am doing so. The votes didn’t come. That’s politics.”

Her comments came in a speech warning about the dangers of populist politics, a week before her last day in office.

But asked by The Sun if she was taking a dig at Boris and Trump, Mrs May replied: “This is a general observation that I have.

“I’ve seen it in politics and across the world. It is important that we try and bring back in debate generally to a more reasonable area.”

Next Wednesday the outgoing PM is expected to say a few words outside 10 Downing Street as she finally steps down and hands over to Mr Johnson or Jeremy Hunt.

NHS Boss’s Mates Bunged Hundreds of Thousands

As Guido revealed yesterday, the three organisations which received funding from NHS England’s ‘Health as a Social Movement’ programme all just happened to be headed by senior New Labour SpAds. The NEF’s then CEO Marc Stears was Ed Miliband’s speechwriter, while the RSA and Nesta’s CEOs – Matthew Taylor and Geoff Mulgan – were both policy chiefs in Downing Street under Tony Blair. Guido is still investigating exactly how much they all got, unlike the NEF who’ve publicly documented their half-a-million pounds, Nesta and the RSA haven’t published detailed income breakdowns…

Of course there was another top Blair SpAd who was in Downing Street at the same time as Taylor and Mulgan – the “architect of Labour’s health service reforms” according to The Guardian Simon Stevens. The current chief executive of NHS England…

The ‘Health as a Social Movement’ programme itself was Stevens’ brainchild as part of his five-year plan for the NHS in 2014. Stevens has certainly maintained a good working relationship with his former colleagues in their new roles, he’s a regular fixture at speaking events for Nesta and gets frequent mentions on the RSA blog. Taylor is particularly fond of talking up “my former Downing Street colleague”.

Just after Stevens launched his five-year plan, Taylor was quick to praise it in a blog titled “Joining Up Is Hard To Do”, where none other than Geoff Mulgan gets name-dropped in the second paragraph for his work promoting “more integrated working”. A year later and they’d both won the contracts from Stevens’ new scheme. Looks like joining up wasn’t so hard to do after all!

Gizza Job Bozza (Harper Edition)

Gizza Job Bozza (Harper Edition)

As the leadership race draws to a close (less than a week to go now) MPs have started to follow in Amber Rudd’s footsteps and more openly pitch for Cabinet jobs. The most blatant of which being Mark Harper this morning…

After his brief leadership pitch, the former Chief Whip is clearly looking to get back into the Cabinet, clearly aiming for the low hanging fruit role of Northern Ireland Secretary. Few want it and the incumbent is sure to be one of the first out the door…

Harper is also following in the video footsteps of Liz Truss who made a slightly more subtle pitch at the start of the month focusing on business. She’s now widely tipped to lead a souped up Business department. #LizForBiz

We’ll start finding out if these pitches are successful in just a week’s time…

Penultimate Moonshot Session

Penultimate Moonshot Session

It’s not really the ‘Questions to the Prime Minister’ that are all that important, so much as the ‘Answers from the Prime Minister’. MPs on either benches can come up with any old rubbish. Only the PM’s fumbles, slips, or surprise admissions will make the bulletins. Or would have. This is Theresa May’s penultimate Wednesday session. The government she formed has a little over a week of life, and has stopped making news. It might be liberating for her instead. She could say anything she wants to her interrogators. An-y-thing. We are at the fin du regime. Power and patronage are slipping away from No. 10, even while there has been one trillion pounds of spending promises and a The Thick of It -style government department announced. But still Mrs May has her tabbed folder from which to refer.

It’s so unfair. She has to mug up all morning on current issues across Whitehall,, as well as memorise the hopefully witty and savage put-down for the final answer to the Leader of the Opposition. All Corbyn has to do is to be able to read out aloud what has been written for him. A grammar-school-educated 13-year-old could do that. Corbyn is not too interested in the actual responses. His over-long polemical questions will be chopped and shaped like a Bird’s Eye chicken burgers and fed to his supporters using the microchips of their internet devices. This multitude already believe JC walks on water. They do not witness Corbyn’s regular crucifixions at the Despatch Box.

There were mentions of England’s Cricket World Cup victory, plus also Lewis Hamilton’s record-breaking sixth successive victory at Silverstone. The reader might be forgiven for thinking that cricketing analogies might be exclusively appropriate for this session. After all, the PM is at the crease while the questions are bowled at her. Opposition MPs use ‘sledging’ tactic to disrupt her concentration.

Not so. John Gummer, or Lord Beefburger as older readers will know him, has described, in his capacity as one of the overnumerous High Priests of Global Warming, the government’s response to climate change as run ‘like a Dad’s Army’. And it was this quote that Jeremy Corbyn used as the basis for his questions. He could gone in like Hodges the Warden, or Yeatman the Verger. But no. He was Private Frazer. ???We’re doomed???, he was saying to the chamber, but not in a Scottish accent. It would be bad form to steal the SNP’s thunder in this way.

Mrs May refused to assume the role of Capt. Mainwaring. She also refused to make her answers just about the environment. In addition to batting off the question, she hit back with questions of her own. It wasn’t cricket after all. It had become tennis.

A normal Labour leader could have ignored these questions. By now everyone knows Corbyn is not a normal Labour leader. And these questions were about Labour’s newish unofficial culture of rather overt anti-Semitism that positively everyone is talking about as a form of relief from talking about Brexit. The Party of the People’s finger-wagging at its leader has gone up a notch. One-third of its peers paid (we can assume) for a full-page advertisement in The Guardian stating the bleedin’ obvious, a copy of which the PM helpfully brandished across the Despatch Box. Corbyn might have missed it, or a staffer might have cut it out the Party’s copy of the paper. Or Corbyn only reads the Morning Star over his beans on toast. But in this case he had to answer the PM. His response was worse than ignoring, merely spouting robotically a bland party line that even his own deputy no longer accepts.

The House did not listen in reverential silence during this exchange. There were shouts of ‘shame’ and ‘disgraceful’. It is to be hoped that none of these were directed at May as she took three points off Corbyn’s serve. But Corbyn has six questions and May stopped her own at three. So it was back to Dad’s Army and cricket for the rest, with one bowled statistic being batted back as another. It is perhaps the rule that members are not addressed by name in the chamber that prevented the PM from closing with ‘Who Do You Think You Are Kidding, Mr Corbyn’. She should have. Instead she compared him unfavourably to his ‘heroes’, Attlee, Bevan and Benn. She should have known better, as it is possible Corbyn’s heroes are actually Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, given the company he keeps.

It was Sir Peter Bottomley who assumed the role of the Reverend Timothy Farthing, vicar of Walmington-on-Sea, with a question about a criminal case or cases no-one has heard of. Is this about to blow up into a big scandal? Remember you read about it here first if it does. Lillian Greenwood alerted the Commons to the grave condition of Notts County Football Club, the one not managed by Brian Clough, which is the oldest soccer club in the world. We were told there is a medical robot called Rory doing good work somewhere in England. By coincidence that is also the name of a government minister, and there was such mirth at the coincidence.

Ian Blackford has the stature of Verger Yeatman and the accent of Private Frazer, but did not go on the environment. Or rather he did, sort of. He tried to get the PM to agree that Donald Trump was a racist, and then that Boris Johnson was a racist as well. He then tried to make out the PM was racist because of her ‘Go Home’ vans and the Home Office culture of a ‘hostile environment. It was therefore strange that he stopped ath the White House and the Government benches, given the previous exchanges. Instead Mr Blackford of the SNP accused the PM of appealing to nationalists. To respond to this, Mrs May did not need to refer to her folder.

A side-note here. From the Order Paper, there were three Conservative backbench questions, six Labour, but five for the SNP, excluding their leader’s. And the calibre of their questions were better, being more detailed than those of Labour’s. The SNP seem to have evolved over the years in essence the Labour Party minus the anti-Semitism. It must be a pity to some they do not field candidates in England. Brexit did not get much of a look-in at this session.

Two of the Conservative questions referenced the half-century since the first manned moon landings, and this raises and interesting question of its own. Does Jeremy Corbyn believe the USA sent men to the Moon half-a-century ago? Certainly a significant minority of his supporters seem to doubt it, as much as they doubt that six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. There always seems to be a preamble concerning an anniversary or news before the politicians get down the nitty-gritty, rather like Sumo wrestlers chucking salt into the ring before they grapple. Given that Corbyn does not seem to believe that God should Save Our Gracious Queen, this could have been a gotcha moment by Mrs May. While the USA sent men to the moon for all mankind, the flag Neil Armstrong planted was not the UN’s, it was the Stars and Stripes, the globally-recognised symbol of capitalism. Corbyn would have had to acknowledge the USA’s achievement over the USSR through gritted teeth.

The PM has one more PMQs to go, so there’s still time to refer to this anniversary. That is not the most important issue. Will Mrs May get the apparently standing ovation given PMs who quit in the middle of a Parliament? I am sure this is on everyone’s minds. Stay tuned.

Corbyn Meets With Jewish Anti-Gay Campaigner

Corbyn Meets With Jewish Anti-Gay Campaigner

This morning Jeremy Corbyn met with anti-sex education activist Shraga Stern, in an apparent misjudged attempt to appear to reach out to the Jewish community. Stern was told just last month by Stamford Hill rabbis to cease his homophobic campaigning. Shraga Stern drafted lawyers to write to the Education Secretary, calling education on LGBT+ relationships “morally unacceptable and unlawful.” He joined the Muslim sex education protests in Birmingham, and argues that schools should have no role in teaching relationships and sex education. A Jewish Labour Movement source told Guido:

“It’s a shame that the only representatives of any part of the Jewish community that Corbyn is prepared to listen to are those from its most reactionary sections. Shraga Stern has been an inveterate campaigner against children being taught that LGBT people exist. His views and tactics do not represent the vast bulk of the Jewish community.”

Why won’t Corbyn meet with mainstream members of the Jewish community..?
