Five years ago today, Theresa May announced she was making a statement in Downing Street ...

... despite repeated assurances that "I'm not going to be calling a snap election", she called a snap election 🧵
The subject of the statement was not announced, speculation swirled: Had a Royal died? Was she resigning? Was she calling a snap election?

May wanted a bigger majority to deliver Brexit, and said the election was about two issues: Brexit & leadership

The press was enthused
The pollsters at the time confirmed the confidence of the Tory press:

ComRes put the Conservatives on 50% and Labour on 25%.

YouGov had the Tories on 49% and Labour on 24%

🧵 1) Our fourth episode examines the controversial Labour Party Regional Director for the South East, Teddy Ryan.

See our #BehindLabour reports every Wednesday, 1pm til 2pm every week, only on @Standup4Labour's show #NOTPMQs.

#Corruption #UKLabour
2) Behind Labour received many requests to look at Teddy Ryan, because of his central role in the #ItWasAScam hostile takeover of the Labour Party. Actioned with cash, logistical support, direction and encouragement from the right wing of the U.S. Democrat Party... shocking!
3) Ryan works as the South East Regional Director, out of their London-based office (yes we thought that was sad as well), after working underneath his partner Hollie Ridley in the East Of England Region. He makes MANY lofty claims about his achievements on his public profile.

No amount of whataboutery, legislation around personal data nor focus on context; will erase the vile toxicity of those exposed by the #LabourLeaks report.
If you joked that a member would burn in a fire, that you would not 'piss' on them to put it out & wished for a petrol emoji; no data breach will take away from the fact that you are a disgusting individual. There is no context that would make it anything other than abhorrent.
If you laughed at the fact that one of the most abused black politicians had been reduced to tears & then decided to tip a 'journalist' as to her location; no data breach will absolve you from being vile & probably a racist.

2/4. During the 1980's a ‘triumvirate’ of Trevor Chinn, Gerald Ronson and Michael Levy played a part in the rightward shift of the Labour Party under Tony Blair – and perhaps some role in the party’s rapprochement with Israel. Blair and Levy👇.#StarmerOut Image

2/5. Taming The Media: Peter Mandelson praised Thatcher's intolerance towards the siege of Murdoch's union-busting Wapping plant by protesting printers. In the past Mandelson has appeared at pro-Israel rallies with the far-right former Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. #StarmerOut Image
3/5. Lord Mandelson also happens to be a close friend of Elisabeth Murdoch - Rupert Murdoch's daughter, and given Murdoch's own investments in Israel and his close friendship with Ariel Sharon, the orientation of Murdoch's newspapers is predictably pro-Israel. #StarmerOut Image

When antisemitism smears kicked in after 2015, it took most of us by surprise & we didn't call it out

By time we learned enough about the smearers & their tactics they already had a grip on the narrative & most ppl were afraid to challenge

But #ItWasAScam

Say. It. Loud.
I remember being attacked by Jeremy D*ns as an 'antisemite' for supporting Corbyn, really vile and vicious, quite scary. To be honest, these days I'd tell him to fuck off but when it was new to me it was disconcerting and I actually tried reasoning with him #ItWasAScam
And back then there were lots of memes & stuff about bankers etc, which many people hadn't realised were antisemitic tropes. Think we've been on a journey since then. But we ended up where you can't even use facts to criticise Israel without being called antisemitic from some

"Evidence contained in two detailed reports now suggests that the Labour Party’s failings in handling antisemitism complaints were, in large measure, not the fault of Corbyn. On the contrary, it seems that it is some of his fiercest critics who have a case to answer. Yet they
are in receipt of considerable quantities of Labour Party funds, while it is Corbyn who has had the whip withdrawn.

The choice facing Martin Forde QC is a simple one. Does he obfuscate and distort - trusting that, as with the EHRC report, a complicit and
inept media will fail to probe and scrutinise his findings?

Or does he honestly investigate the reality of what happened within the Labour Party between 2015 and 2019 - no matter how embarrassing it is for Keir Starmer?" Peter Oborne

The Labour Party smears me again. And thousands of other former members and members who were accused falsely of antisemitism for supporting the human rights of others. Pretty soon they won’t have any members at all!…
Like hundreds of thousands of others I joined the Labour Party in 2015 because I heard @jeremycorbyn speak. He was the first politician I had ever heard who was honest and respectful and answered every question asked sincerely. An intelligent, well read man.
A year later it suddenly became apparent that in spite of the smiles and applause at the time, Labour MPs weren’t going to stand for an honest leader. They resigned from his cabinet, one every hour, in a coordinated attempt to force him to resign.

It is now a year since the Forde Report was first meant to be published.

Corrupt factional Labour Right!

Why has justice still not been delivered in regards to racism, bullying and internal sabotage that was revealed in the #LabourLeak, @Keir_Starmer?

It's such a Tory tactic for Keir Starmer to point to a dodgily indefinitely delayed report for the reason he has still, a year on, not taken action against those who when working in Party HQ not only sabotaged from within but behaved in bullying and racist ways. #Newsnight
⬆️ Justice delayed is justice denied according to Keir Starmer's original profession.

So where the hell is the Forde Report @Keir_Starmer?

We know the excuse for its INDEFINITE DELAY is bollocks!
