Keir Starmer: day 101 to 150
Keir Starmer celebrates his 150th day as the leader of the Labour party today. Let’s have a look at his last 50 days (a link to days 1 to 100 are in the thread below).

The first 100 days of Starmer’s leadership are here:
Right then, day 101 to 150. Let’s start with the Russian interference report. It was pretty damning. Basically we have no idea if the Russians are meddling in our affairs because the Gov’t and security services have deliberately looked the other way.
Keir was more interested
in why the Gov’t delayed the report. Missing the point is a bit of a theme of Starmer’s.
During PMQ’s, Johnson cites “legal reasons” as the cause of the delay. The hack pack and social media Keirleaders then go wild with delight when he reminds Johnson he was once a legal Wiz

This is something of a dystopian nightmare....the Tories may well be the trigger men however who are the architects? The sporadic way these changes have been brought about makes it obvious that this is being fed into them in piecemeal fashion.....
Jim Butler-Daulby
Regor Steeps, the architects are multinational corporations, their leaders and their 'investors'. We've created, (or allowed the creation of), an economic system which places profit above everything else. Milton Friedman, Thatcher's favourite economist,
once said that; "if the law prevents you from making a profit then change the law!" With obscene wealth comes obscene power.
Historically, our empire was actually built in very similar fashion. It wasn't our "mighty kings and queens" who went out, sword in hand,

Much to the chagrin of @jeremycorbyn, the @UKLabour Party has agreed to pay ‘substantial damages’ to seven #whistleblowers over ‘defamatory and false allegations’ regarding a @BBCPanorama investigation into the party under his leadership.
Propagating the false allegation that ‘#Jewish wealth and power’ are somehow the source of social injustice is nothing new. The #Nazis employed it, figuring that there were enough fools in pre-war #Germany to be taken in by the lie.
Sadly, (and at the cost of 6 million innocent #Jewish lives), they were right. Joseph #Stalin then adopted the idea, on the basis that ‘socialism of fools’ was a good thing, because fools are common.

It's hard to get the tone right on this, but let's remind ourselves of why #Corbyn is having to go: he was a complete disgrace from start to finish. /THREAD
First and foremost, he made #Labour a frightening and unsafe place for Jews. He was so arrogant he invented a new meaning for the word 'Zionist' and then divided Jews into good and bad. Sinister and frightening.
He turned Labour into a site of hatred, threats and misogyny. His staff covered up and lied, and then covered up and lied some more.

As the #Corbyn era comes to an end, it's important to pause for a minute and remember how intolerable he made Jewish life in this country. It's impossible to list all his repulsive views and extremist friends, but here's a selection:
1. Corbyn accepted a free trip to meet the butcher of Damascus, Bashar al Assad, paid for by a Palestinian group which blames Jews for the Holocaust.
2. Corbyn called Ewa Jasiewicz "a very good friend", the activist who desecrated the last remaining walls of the Warsaw ghetto – where an estimated 92,000 Jews died – with pro-Palestinian graffiti.…

Is @UKLabour's current leader @jeremycorbyn also a closet homophobe as strange as it may first appear? Thread on what his preferred people to align with are all on board with, why he has never condemned them over this human rights issue & no this time it's not #Antisemitism. 1/7
We all know @UKLabour is institutionally antisemitic, but is its' current leader also something else too, now what do all of his "heroes" from Che Guevara who wanted gays sent to re-education camps or dead right through to the modern day Iranian regime all have in common? 2/7
#Corbyn supported the IRA - which targeted two pubs in Birmingham that were well known for their gay community and he never once condemned this atrocity even though the IRA held very strong anti-gay views and many members of Sein Fein still do. 3/7

#BernieSanders is now the front-runner to be the US #Democratic challenger to #Trump. He is popular because, like #JeremyCorbyn, he is serious about social democratic reforms #ForTheMany at the expense of the billionaire class... /1
...serious action to address the #ClimateEmergency & reigning-in US military adventures. For the same reasons the US ruling class are out to destroy him politically, either in favour of one of his #Democrat rivals or, if that fails, if favour of #Trump. /2
Like the campaign against #Corbyn they are using every smear & dirty trick available to them. However #Sanders has shown he has learned from Corbyn's mistakes in capitulating to his dishonest critics:
"His campaign has also been rather sure-footed in the..." /3

This LIE destroyed Jeremy #Corbyn, Labour's chances of winning the recent General Election ... and handed power, and control over your lives,
to the ultra-right wing Tories.

#Britain's democracy and your democratic rights, in other words, were stolen by the undemocratic, unrepresentative, ultra-right-wing 'Jewish' Board of Deputies.

- - - -

It will shock you to discover that in a country with a population of more than SIXTY SIX MILLION PEOPLE, there are ONLY 260,000 JEWS!

"The Jewish Labour Movement believes antisemitism is a serious problem in the Labour Party." The Jewish Labour Movement is an organisation that allows anyone from any political party to join (Think about that) it members do not have to be Jewish.
So anyone with an agenda against #Corbyn or genuine ethical socialism can join. April 2019 Mike Katz JLMs Chairperson made it clear the group would be selective in supporting candidates at the General Election who supported Corbyn. So in whose interests do they serve?

If you voted via post using the freedom of information act you can request what happened to your postal vote. Searching for the 'freedom of information act'

Too many things about this election don't make sense! Numbers make sense don't they?
Let's talk numbers then..

1. All polls online I saw suggested #corbyn was more popular with the public as a future PM.
Not just ones in left wing groups. (60-70% roughly)

2. All public rallies #corbyn held were utterly rammed to the barriers. Thousands.
The only room Boris filled in the run up to an election was a fridge. I'm not sure about these numbers. It would be nice to know, anyone know for certain?

3. Boris hired people to use bots to do much of his online dirty work and mis informing.

Nasty things hydras, cut off one head, it grows back. Soon you're overwhelmed.

The most insidious thing. The beast will distract you putting a head in harm's way to be sacrificed and as you take your swing, so another eats you from behind.

McCluskey and the Dump on #Corbyn plan
It is the case in my experience that those in power rarely attribute failure to themselves. But once they can no longer deny it, they then grasp for others to blame.

Before you know it, they're talking themselves into making all the same mistakes again because they weren't wrong
Catastrophes aren't one man. Delusion and stubborn adherence to a plan need a hydra.

Keep them, the hydra will grow back.

Our country deserves modern solutions to social justice. Not old fashioned socialism sold by old fashioned men still solving old problems from 50 years ago

For what it's worth, as wounds from #Brexit and #GE2019 are licked, this is what I think needs to happen (and not happen) next (THREAD).
1. It's crystal clear that you can't win an election in modern Britain if you're to the left of where Blair & Brown were. The argument #Corbyn wasn't Brexity or left wing enough is barely worth dignifying with a retort. Look at history post 1979, and the new electoral map.
2. It's also clear that the #LibDems will only ever, at best, be in a position to hold the balance of power, like a DUP. Our flawed electoral system means they will never break through beyond that.

One of key reasons why #Labour & #Corbyn got hammered is because many voters swallowed the propaganda campaign of Corbyn being an 'antisemite' & 'IRA sympthiser' w/much of lies coming from benches of Labour itself. Jeremy then topped himself by pivoting on #Brexit because...
2) ... he was weak and beaten into a corner and at the mercy of the traitors & establishment operatives embedded in his own party. By dithering on #Brexit he was a goner, and his adversaries knew that full well. Blairites handed Tories a mandate in order to slay #JeremyCorbyn...
3).... it's a simple as that. It was a NeoLiberal coup for sure, but to be honest if half the #Labour voters were not smart enough to see what was happening in front of them, then they deserve to lose big - many were too easily led by deceivers at The Guardian etc, still aloof...

If Jeremy #Corbyn becomes PM on Friday 13th, here's my rundown of 13 of #Labour’s worst policies which will hurt many, not just the few.

PS. I could have chosen a completely different 13, and these are in no particular order… (thread)

1. Expropriating up to 10% of the value of corporate equity. Employee share ownership is usually a good thing, but dictating the terms would deter job creation and investment, and encourage firms to relocate overseas. More explanation here...…
2. Rent controls. Almost all economists agree that these are a bad idea and, like many of Labour’s policies, would actually end up hurting the very people they are supposed to help. And before replying ‘well, it works in Germany', read this……

@JohnDomokos I have to shift gears to some considerable extent to even begin to understand the thinking of people who don't or can't or won't understand that a country with its own currency can make money when needed or required for state interventions - the "magic money tree" exists. ->
@JohnDomokos Therefore #Corbyn's plans no matter how broad or comprehensive can be fulfilled. Further I grew up in the 1970s when most of what he's promising existed and the history of that is clearly written if people care to look. ->
@JohnDomokos The idea that the more you promise the less you'll be believed is again based on an unwillingness to look at the past and what was, and how much we've lost between then (70s) and now in 2019, and how much can be regained given the political will. ->

Ok, apparently, it is wrong for me to put antisemitism and the myriad other issues I have with #Corbyn #NeverCorbyn above voting for Labour and I am just enabling the Tories (and therefore am a Tory). Here is a list of things Labour would rather have than getting the Tories out
Getting rid of Tom Watson is more important than getting the Tories out
Getting rid of Luciana Berger is more important than getting the Tories out

@Peston @jeremycorbyn @Schofe @hollywills Rabbi made a malicious and vicious attack timed & designed to help #BorisJohnson win. Why is there no mention of rabid & explicit Islamophobia from Johnson & #ToryRacism or he doesn't care about all hatred & racism? It's about the election & #Corbyn criticism of Israel. See pics:
@Peston @jeremycorbyn @Schofe @hollywills Here are #JohnsonTheCoward's vile Islamophobic and anti-Muslim comments. Any word from the #ToryRabbi?

And how many more times should Jeremy Corbyn apologise?

Last night after an incident in London in which members of the public were killed #FrancesBarber took the opportunity to link #JeremyCorbyn to the act of terror! In her eagerness to smear #Corbyn with the charge of #Antisemitism she herself made antisemitic comments
You may perhaps think that this is just a one off Jibe but it is not.
#Antisemitism & #Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it raises its head. Unfortunately #FrancesBarber is not really concerned about #Antisemitism rather she likes to focus her hate on #JC4PM Corbyn's actions would suggest not! @threadreaderapp "Unroll"

#TacticalVoting. A thread.

I ‘m not sure people ‘get’ tactical voting. In principle we understand the idea of not voting for our first choice in order to influence the parliamentary maths.
But we are still drawn, magnetically, emotionally or tribally, to the person or party we would like to win without objectively assessing whether that person actually has a chance.
This is not a #referendum. If the person you vote for does not win, you are left with nothing. (3)

So, this 'debate' then. God, did you really watch those two? I had a lovely soothing evening - and, by the sounds of things, I made the right call. Anyway, on the *face of it*, a split decision and a slight BoJo win. /THREAD
However, consider these appalling #Corbyn leader ratings from the last time these pollsters reported. He came on and made a cogent case. He held his own. Yeah, he lied through his teeth a bit, but who doesn't? His next set of numbers will be better, perhaps by quite a bit.
Viewers' expectations will have been confounded. If we consult Lord Ashcroft's latest polling dashboard, we find that among all voters, 36% expected Johnson to win, against only 18% thinking Corbz would shade it.

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

02 - #Tories Boris #Johnson gets booed out of Addenbrooke Hospital by staff and patients alike, unmentioned by #BBC, who were right there.

A vote for the #Tories in this election is a surrender vote, a vote to stay under #EU control. #Johnson’s insistence on pushing his #FakeBrexit shows he has no intention of delivering independence. He won’t even try. The #BrexitParty is the only vote if we want #Brexit delivered.
#Johnson has broken trust with the people. He could have been a national hero, but has stayed loyal to his own tribe. He’s hoping we’re so worn out by 3 years of lies and obstruction we’ll settle for anything. His #FakeBrexit is an establishment trap to keep us under #EU control.
#BorisJohnson has a large majority in the palm of his hand if he makes a ‘no deal’ pact with #Farage and the #BrexitParty, but he refuses to do it because, like most #Tories, he doesn’t want the #UK to be independent.
