Couldn't make it up - Unless you work for the Guardian!

George Monbiot agreed to charity work over McAlpine libel

In apologising for the libel he wrote “I felt a powerful compulsion to do what I have done throughout my career: to help the voiceless be heard. But in this case I did so without any of the care I usually take when assessing and reporting an issue. I allowed myself to be carried away by a sense of moral outrage. As a result, far from addressing an awful injustice, I contributed to one.”

He has allowed himself to be carried away again in the Guardian article. Among other nonsense he described rents as a private tax, whipping his supporters into a sense of moral outrage, and fuelling their hatred of landlords - the very people whom he admits are needed for the foreseeable future.

So if they are driven to sell up by his nonsensical rhetoric and clamour for lifetime tenancies and rent controls, and more poor people are made homeless as a result, Monbiot can look down on them and see that, “ far from addressing an awful injustice, I contributed to one.”... Read More

Noisy tenants known to be loud by letting agent

Reply to the comment left by Old Mrs Landlord at 09/07/2019 - 20:46

Was it because FL claimed that her agent let a her property to a woman who “was on the higher rate of both care and mobility Disability Living Allowance” but had to “climb the three flights of stairs to the property”, according to the original Reader’s question.

Or was it the extraordinary length of the replies? Or the depth of claimed knowledge of the law? Or the Shelter propaganda? Read More

Don't forget Landlords Boris?

The question is will Corbyn be leader at the next general election? He was replying to claims by civil servants that “he doesn’t seem all there”.

The Times says he will be replaced by Rebecca Long-Bailey.

It had another article about him “Jeremy Corbyn: Bullying, plots and paranoia . . . inside his chaotic bunker”
It said “Although the Labour leader boasts of creating a mass political movement, in fact power in his party resides with a tiny clique of leftwingers. Karie Murphy, his chief of staff, and Seumas Milne, his director of strategy, run his office with an iron fist. Together with Len McCluskey, general secretary of the Labour-backing Unite union, and his adviser Andrew Murray they are known as the “4Ms”.

“One former senior aide adds: “Lots of people were given hush money. Karie is a bully. She’s very aggressive and undermining of staff. Around the office she’s a shouter and screamer.”
According to an MP: “There’s a really bullying culture which helps to create this sense of ‘you’re in or out’. ”
Insiders report an increasingly “toxic atmosphere” at the top. At least eight former members of staff have signed non-disclosure agreements forbidding them to discuss their experiences working for the Labour Party. A recent visitor to Mr Corbyn’s office describes being jabbed in the chest by Ms Murphy as she shouted at him.”

Karie Murphy sounds like Malcolm Tucker, but working for New Communism instead of New Labour.

Andrew Murray and Seumas Milne have turned their backs on their privileged backgrounds.

“Born into an aristocratic Scottish family, Murray has been a senior official for several trade unions over a couple of decades. After forty years in the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) and then the Communist Party of Britain, he joined the Labour Party towards the end of 2016.  Murray was seconded from Unite to Labour headquarters for the 2017 general election.”
Milne is an apologist for communism.
“After graduating from Oxford University, Milne became the business manager of Straight Left, a monthly publication commencing in 1979, which, according to Standpoint magazine, was produced by a pro-Soviet faction in the Communist Party of Great Britain, and included several left-wing Labour MPs with pro-Soviet bloc sympathies on its editorial board.[15][16] During his time at Straight Left Milne became friends with Andrew Murray, who much later again became a colleague of Milne in the Labour Party. Milne himself was not a Communist Party member.”

Len McCluskey is General Secretary of Unite the Union, the largest affiliate and a major donor to the Labour Party. He was a a friend of Derek Hatton and supported Militant.

He had an illegitimate child with Jennie Formby, now General Secretary of the Labour Party, in 1991 when she was 30 or 31.

“Since late 2011, Jennie Formby has been a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Labour Party on which she was considered to represent the thinking of Unite general secretary Len McCluskey.”
“Jennie Formby (Unite)

Formby, now regional secretary of Unite, was political director prior to being moved out to the regions to lay the groundwork for Len McCluskey’s re-election bid. Referred to as “Len’s representative on Earth”, Formby is a vocal advocate for McCluskey’s way of thinking on the NEC.”

Rebecca Long-Bailey is the daughter of a docker trade unionist called Long. She has given herself a double-barrelled name.

“When Hazel Blears decided to stand down at the 2015 election, Long-Bailey stood as a candidate for Salford and Eccles, and received the backing of Unite Union when the Labour Party decided to have a woman-only shortlist.
Long-Bailey was one of 36 Labour MPs to nominate Jeremy Corbyn as a candidate in the Labour leadership election of 2015.  After winning the leadership of the party, Corbyn replaced Hilary Benn on Labour's NEC with Long-Bailey.”

So McCluskey is not just influencing Corbyn through the power of the Unite union vote, he is influencing him through the Gen Sec and the NEC, and Long-Bailey. Is he the de facto leader of the Labour Party?.... Read More

Corbyn was on TV today demanding that civil servants be non-political - and he managed to keep a straight face.
"The civil service has to be independent," he said, adding: "It has to be non-political and has to be non-judgemental of the politicians they have a duty to serve.
"I would make that very clear if we were elected to government.
The civil servants’ union is consulting on what its members should do to help get him elected .... Read More
