This is rather excellent.

CyberNats went through a similar trajectory shouting at Tunnock’s Tea Cakes. Not that Sturgeon parrots such nonsense. Jez however warns about #starmerdarkmoney
Ms Long-Bailey and the third candidate Lisa Nandy have both published their lists of campaign donations exceeding £1,500. But Sir Keir, who YouGov predicted will win the leadership contest in the first round, hasn't yet done so, prompting Young Labour to urge him to release the list in full.

Asked if the shadow Brexit secretary and Holborn and St Pancras MP should oblige, Mr Corbyn said: "Yes. I think there always has to be openness in all respects, and when you receive financial support for a political campaign it's very important to know where it comes from, all of it should be published. I published everything in my leadership campaigns. The number of high-level, big ticket donors we had was very small, I leave that to others."
Which will probably explain why Jez won’t get shadow foreign secretary which he richly deserves (according to him).
Asked what shadow cabinet position he'd take if offered his pick, Mr Corbyn said: "I think foreign policy actually because I have spent my life on human rights justice and environmental justice issues. But that's not up to me, that's up to the next leader. I will be working on human rights, environmental and social justice whatever position I hold or don't hold." https://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/news ... -1-6537740

Surely with his peace prize winning profile and proven administrative skills, a big international humanitarian job is coming his way soon? I bet David Miliband gets sacked and replaced by Jez.

Nah. Northern Nigeria or Darfur/Somalia/Malawi. With his history of cosying up with Islamic terrorists he'll feel right at home taking tea and discussing jam making with the likes of al-Shabab or Boko Haram.

FFS. The PLP initiated the vote of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn in 2016 not because they were worried about him being so bloody useless that he could never lead the Labour Party back into government, but specifically *because* Corbyn was on the brink of leading Labour back to government, and the PLP - the *PLP* - actively wanted to *prevent* a Labour government led by Corbyn from being elected. According to a right fucking wing nut on the Labour Leadership Conversation and Debate forum. I mean, what do you do in the face of such insane paranoia?

I've heard similar claims elsewhere. It all goes back to their worldview anyone against Jeremy can't be opposed to Jeremy because of faults with Jeremy it has to be becasue they're motivated by opposistion to Jeremy and the socialist nirvana that he will bring.
