STALBURY TRUSTEES: THE GHOST OF THATCHER HAUNTS THE RED WALL

Hamlet and Ghost. George Cruikshank c.1825.

“What may this mean, that thou, dead corse, again in complete steel, revisits thus the glimpses of the moon, making night hideous, and we fools of nature so horridly to shake our disposition with thoughts beyond the reaches of our soul?”

So speaks Hamlet when confronted by the Ghost of his father on the desolate battlements of Elsinore.

Today the vengeful spectre of another former ruler haunts the ramparts of another desolate Wall, closer to home. It is a ghost arrayed not in steel but in iron, and a wall the colour of blood. It is the ghost of Margaret Thatcher, and it is the Red Wall upon which her sulphurous spirit stalks.

Complaint to the BBC on Laura Kuenssberg

We write to complain about a piece BBC political editor Laura Kuennsberg delivered on BBC News at Ten on 17/11/2020. The subject of the piece was Keir Starmer’s decision to deny the parliamentary whip to Jeremy Corbyn and also appeared on the BBC website in article form – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-54996354

We believe Ms Kuennsberg’s piece was heavily skewed and violated impartiality guidelines.

LABOUR: A HOUSE DIVIDED?

Will the house stand?

“A house divided against itself cannot stand…” wrote Abraham Lincoln. “I do not expect the Union to be dissolved-I do not expect the house to fall-but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.”

After the moribund post-Blairite years, Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour Party in 2015. Since then Labour, and the wider labour movement, has been ravaged by repeated schisms, along ideological fault-lines, for control of the party.

Now, with the new leadership team of Kier Starmer, a newly elected NEC and the prospect of three influential General Secretaries of Trade Unions stepping down in the coming months, the debate about the future of the Party has been reignited with a renewed sense of urgency.

MARGARET BECKETT AND THE TRIBUNE GROUP: STARMER’S FIFTH COLUMN?

Starmer’s Fifth Column?

As we were conducting research into individuals registered as donors to Keir Starmer, we encountered an intriguing anomaly. A donor to Starmer named Helen Rowe, on whom we have been unable to corroborate further details, had also donated £10,000 to an entity called The Labour Tribune MP’s Group.

The Complete Catalogue of Corporate Media Hypocrisy Concerning Jeremy Corbyn

We have previously documented the extraordinary campaign by Blairite elements of the Labour party and the corporate media to tar Jeremy Corbyn with the stigma of anti-Semitism (in spite of his lengthy record as an anti-racist campaigner including 50 occasions where he has stood with the Jewish community).

The double-standards employed to do so have been so shameless and Orwellian we feel compelled to document them.

30 Years of Night: Priti Patel and Brexit

Conservatives drain your vital interests to feed their own. (Image courtesy Spitting Image.)

In the under-watched and underappreciated 2007 film 30 Days of Night, a coven of vampires invade a remote Alaskan outpost during the perpetual night of the Arctic winter. They methodically and ruthlessly cut-off all communication and connection to the outside world, trapping all those that Remain.

Unlike classical vampires, this incarnation manufacture their own hostile environment, where they can prey and feed upon an insular, isolated population without outside interference. In a week where legal bodies have issued stark warning of a looming Brexit dictatorship, the parallels do not need to be laboured.

Serco Scandal! The Corporate Media’s Inability to Trace the Truth

At Prime Minister’s Questions on the 9th September 2020 Keir Starmer grilled Boris Johnson about problems with the coronavirus testing system, which had become so dysfunctional members of the public were being offered their “nearest test” hundreds of miles away.

Johnson used the phrase “NHS Test and Trace” no less than ten times in his responses and accused Starmer of “attacks on NHS test and trace”.

The Establishment media were apparently convinced by the PM’s bombast:
