For The Female Of The Species Is More Deadly Than The Male

This report in the Telegraph is entitled Labour supporters boo and hiss at BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg during Jeremy Corbyn’s EU speech. This is an extract.

Labour supporters booed and hissed when the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg was called for a question during a Jeremy Corbyn’s speech on the EU. 

Earlier this week it emerged Mr Corbyn had criticised the Corporation’s coverage of his leadership during a behind-the-scenes documentary by Vice News.

Perhaps because I’m sometimes a man of manners, booing somebody just because they’re reporting the news, isn’t on.

But today ths report by Laura has appeared on the BBC web site, which is entitled Corbyn office ‘sabotaged’ EU Remain campaign – sources.

This is an extract.

And documents passed to the BBC suggest Jeremy Corbyn’s office sought to delay and water down the Labour Remain campaign. Sources suggest that they are evidence of “deliberate sabotage”.

One email from the leader’s office suggests that Mr Corbyn’s director of strategy and communications, Seumas Milne, was behind Mr Corbyn’s reluctance to take a prominent role in Labour’s campaign to keep the UK in the EU. One email, discussing one of the leader’s speeches, said it was because of the “hand of Seumas. If he can’t kill it, he will water it down so much to hope nobody notices it”.

A series of messages dating back to December seen by the BBC shows correspondence between the party leader’s office, the Labour Remain campaign and Labour HQ, discussing the European campaign. It shows how a sentence talking about immigration was removed on one occasion and how Mr Milne refused to sign off a letter signed by 200 MPs after it had already been approved.

Read the whole article and see how Laura knows how to get her own back!

As if that wasn’t enough Margaret Hodge and Ann Coffey have called for a vote of confidence in the Labour Leader.

|Does Jeremy Corbyn have a problem with the female of the species?

At least we now know a couple of idiots, who were partly responsible for the Brexit vote! A bit of support for Labour Remain supporters, might just have swung the vote.

It was like fighting Muhammed Ali, with one hand tied behind your back!

  1. […] sabotage the Labour party’s support for Remain, as I detailed in For The Female Of The Species Is More Deadly Than The Male, seems to me a very strange thing for Seamus Milne and Jeremy Corbyn to […]

  2. Ann Coffey is my MP, and I have met her several times. As MPs go she is ok, and she done some excellent work on issues relating to Safeguarding after some of the recent scandals relating to child abuse and exploitation.

    She is strongly anti-Corbyn as this article shows.

    I am not a Labour voter, and I wasn’t enamoured of Jeremy Corbyn when he was first elected. However, I have come to have a lot of respect for him because he has integrity and sticks to his principles, which is rare in a politician at any level. IMO the local Labour party here is as corrupt has heck, but I am talking at local level, not MP level.
