EXCLUSIVE Conservative activist Jennifer Powers insisted she spent money on Facebook and Instagram ads attacking Labour's housing policies because she had an "amateur interest" mirror.co.uk/news/politics/…
A lobbyist with close links to the Conservative Party spent almost £65,000 on anti-Jeremy Corbyn and anti-Labour attack ads from a third party campaign group during the 2019 election campaign, new figures have revealed. #LabourLeaks #ChickenCoup
Former Tory intern Jennifer Powers told the Mirror she had partly funded the Facebook and Instagram ads herself, and raised money through “donations” - but refused to name the sources of her funding. #LabourLeaks #ChickenCoup
Ms Powers, whose WhatsApp profile picture shows her standing outside 10 Downing Street, told the Mirror she has volunteered for the Tories “from time to time” - but denied there had been any co-ordination with the party, or any other campaign group on the ads. #LabourLeaks
“They don't ask my opinion on electoral strategy,” she said, adding that it was a “kitchen table operation.” Asked if she thought £65,000 was a lot of money to raise and spend within two months, Ms Powers said: “That’s an absolutely subjective view. Who can say?. #LabourLeaks
Willie Sullivan, Senior Director of the Electoral Reform Society said: Once again we see questions raised about the murky world of online campaigning and just who is behind the ads that target voters during election time. #LabourLeaks

Wow, Morgan McSweeney again, Rachel Riley, SFFN, Center for Countering Digital Hate, Imran Ahmed, JLM, BoD, Angela Eagle, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Lisa Nandy, Steve Reed, Jon Cruddas, Trevor Chinn, Martin Taylor, Lord Ian Austin and Mark Lewis. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut 24 tweet🧵
Morgan McSweeney, Keir Starmer’s chief of staff, launched the organisation that now runs SFFN.
The CEO Imran Ahmed worked closely with a number of Labour figures involved in the campaign to remove Jeremy as leader.

Rachel Riley is listed as patron. thecanary.co/investigation/…
SFFN claims that it has been “a project of the Center For Countering Digital Hate” since 4 May 2020. The relationship between the two organisations, however, appears to date back far longer. And crucially, CCDH is linked to a number of figures on the Labour right. #LabourLeaks

Recall is used to describe a process where the electorate in an area can trigger a special election to remove an elected representative before the end of their term. A recall procedure was introduced in the UK in 2015. #LabourLeaks #ChickenCoup #LFI commonslibrary.parliament.uk/research-brief…
A recall procedure was introduced in the UK in 2015. It only applies to Members of Parliament and was a response to the MPs’ expenses scandal that occurred in the run up to the 2010 General Election. #LabourLeaks #ChickenCoup
MPs can be recalled only under certain circumstances:

1. If they are convicted in the UK of an offence and sentenced or ordered to be imprisoned or detained and all appeals have been exhausted (and the sentence does not lead to automatic disqualification from being an MP)

#ChickenCoup There are plenty of confessions including one from a Labour front bencher, an ex Labour MP, a Labor Israel MP, an executive of JLM, spies etc, including video, audio and transcripts plus the 851 page #LabourLeaks report, just waiting for the Forde Inquiry Report.🧵👇
Front bencher Jon Ashworth “No because we f***ed it up; we f***ed it up in 2016 when we went too early. People like me were internally saying ‘this isn’t the right moment’ but I got kind of ignored, we went too early.” #LabourLeaks #ChickenCoup #StarmerOut

They want war, death = profit to them. Israel has stolen the Golan Heights from Syria and given the only oil drilling license to Murdoch's Genie Energy, an international crime but easily forgotten if you overthrow Syria's leader and install a puppet regime atomicinsights.com/why-havent-maj…
Why haven’t major U.S. and UK news outlets discussed the implications of Genie Energy’s potentially huge oil discovery in the Golan Heights?. The discovery might contain enough OIL and GAS to supply Israel’s annual demand for many decades. #StarmerOut
Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney had served as an adviser to Genie. In a profile published by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Genie CEO Jonas was described as one of the primary campaign supporters and U.S. allies of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. #StarmerOut
