Desperate British Conservative anti-Corbyn ‘spy’ smears own goal

20 February 2018

Several outlets have covered a story accusing Jeremy Corbyn of spying in yet another ridiculously bogus story. The man who accuses Corbyn also takes credit for founding Live Aid! Moreover, what were the Tories up to in the 1980’s?

A filthy anti-communist campaign has been mounted by Rupert Murdoch’s the Sun and the Times—along with the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph—claiming that Jeremy Corbyn was a paid informer for the Czech secret service in the 1980s: here.

Rupert Murdoch and British Conservatives are watching so many James Bond movies that they have forgotten all differences between fantasy and reality.

The extreme right American John Birch Society and Republican politician and Mormon church leader Benson also used to say that Republican President of the USA General Eisenhower was a Russian spy.

Jeremy Corbyn was in Derbyshire when ex-Czech spy claims they met in London, leader’s records show. The Labour leader ‘s spokesman branded the former agent’s claims ‘utterly ridiculous’: here.

Jeremy Corbyn demands apology and donation to charity from Tory MP who said he ‘sold British secrets to spies’: here.

Satire: Jeremy ‘Stalin’ Corbyn really does have some explaining to do now it’s clear he gave Czech spies information about Margaret Thatcher’s breakfast. The Conservative strategy for winning back support is to try to convince people the Labour leader supports a regime which he always opposed and which no longer exists, which I for one think is admirable: here.


Murdoch’s ‘spy’ smearing of British Labour, parody song

This 19 February parody music video from Britain is called Theme song from Greenfingers, a Jeremy Corbyn spy movie.

It is a parody of the theme song Goldfinger of the James Bond film of that name, sung by Shirley Bassey.

It is about the Rupert Murdoch media smearing Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn as supposedly involved in spying.

The lyrics are:

He’s the man, the man with an allotment
An informant
Such green fingers
Beckons you to enter his rented plot
The sneaky Trot

A disgruntled opposition backbench MP
He will sell you state secrets over tea
An Eastern Bloc spy can bring down the nation
With a little help from Agent Greenfingers
Steals the heart of darling Diane Abbott
The sneaky Trot

Jeremy Corbyn urged to sue Tory MP who accused him of selling “British secrets to communist spies”: here.

Anti-Corbyn ‘spying’ smears are a sign of Tory desperation: here.

Team Corbyn laughs off ‘ridiculous’ cold war spy smear

ALLIES of Jeremy Corbyn responded with bewilderment to today’s front page story in the Sun accusing the Labour leader of a 1980s spy novel-style plot involving Czech security services.

The story alleges that Mr Corbyn was placed on a Czech list of foreign sources.

But those around Mr Corbyn pointed out that a junior back-bench MP would not hold any privileged information to leak.

His spokesman flatly denied that Mr Corbyn had provided intelligence, adding: “In the 1980s he met a Czech diplomat for a cup of tea.

“During the cold war, intelligence officers notoriously claimed to superiors to have recruited people they had merely met. The existence of these bogus claims does not make them true.”

The 1980s Czech files on Mr Corbyn revealed by the Sun provide no new information. They do confirm that Mr Corbyn was “negative toward the current politics of the Conservative government.”

A Labour source said: “The Sun should stick to its normal brand of cheap fiction and avoid trying to channel John le Carré.”

Hidden camera footage, secretly recorded at an Ontario turkey breeding farm, is raising troubling questions about the lack of government oversight of animal welfare standards. Erica Johnson investigates turkey and reveals the darker side of white meat. Undercover footage shows what one activist calls “the worst abuse I’ve ever seen inflicted on an animal”, raising troubling questions about animal welfare on Canadian farms.

Animal Welfare: Labour outlines radical proposals for animal rights

LABOUR will launch a set of radical proposals today on animal welfare that include introducing a ban on the export of live animals for slaughter, strengthening the Hunting Act and implementing a review of testing on animals.

The party is also proposing the appointment of a new animal welfare commissioner to ensure government policy is informed by the latest scientific evidence on animal sentience and to safeguard animal welfare standards in new legislation and post-Brexit trade deals.

The draft policy document, Animal Welfare for the Many, Not the Few, suggests enshrining the principle of animal sentience in law, ending the government’s culling of badgers and introducing mandatory CCTV in all slaughterhouses.

The proposals, which will be put to a public consultation, also include the mandatory labelling of method of production and slaughter for all domestic and imported meat, the creation of post-Brexit farm subsidies to discourage factory farming and a total ban on imports of foie gras, which comes from force-fed ducks and geese.

Labour shadow environment secretary Sue Hayman said: “Labour is the party of animal welfare. From bringing in the ban on fox hunting to tightening the rules on the transport of live animals, Labour has always been consistent in our leadership on matters of animal welfare.

“Today we’re making proposals for real long-term progress. Our vision is one where no animal is made to suffer unnecessary pain and we continue to drive up standards and practice in line with the most recent advances and understanding.

“With new trade deals on the horizon and the UK no longer subject to EU-wide rules on animal welfare, we want to ensure there is a comprehensive legislative agenda in place so that the UK becomes a world leader on animal rights.”

Compassion in World Farming’s campaigns director Emma Slawinski said the draft could signal “the beginning of the end of cruel factory farming.”

She added: “We are thrilled by this announcement from the Labour Party, which would revolutionise conditions for British farm animals.”

Cruelty Free International’s Michelle Thew said: “We wholeheartedly welcome the proposals in the animal-welfare strategy announced today by Labour.

“We believe this is the very start of a journey that will finally put a stop to needless animal experiments in the UK.”
