Tories Embarrass Themselves Again: Demanding Corbyn Apologise For Something He Didn’t Say

The establishment’s latest smear-job on Corbyn shows just how desperate they are getting—litterally inventing fake news and then demanding Corbyn apologize over said fake news —in order to try and kill Corbyn’s popularity with young people.

You really couldn’t make this shit up, could you?

The Tories are in a state and it’s frankly embarrassing and pathetic to watch them endlessly slap themselves in the face.

For weeks now the mainstream media (MSM)—from “left” to right has parroted the Tory line that Corbyn lied to young people about abolishing student debt during the general election (GE).

Framing the issue as a sort of “bribe” based on Corbyn “lies” to get young people to go out and vote for him in the GE.

As anybody who has been paying the slightest bit of attention to Labour’s manifesto would know, the proposal to abolish student debt wasn’t in the manifesto.

Corbyn did, however, say that he was planning to deal with the massive problem of burgeoning student debt in an interview with NME during the GE.

However, the Tories and MSM in their endless desperation have decided that this means he lied to young people. Apparently, we are all too stupid to understand the difference between what is in a manifesto (concrete pledges) and issues that Corbyn’s Labour is committed to dealing with in ways yet to be announced.

Yesterday, during an interview on Marr, Corbyn clarified the issue for the sake of the mainstream media dimwits who can’t seem to understand these simple points.

WATCH: The BBC triumphantly declares what we already knew with their headline here.

The Daily Mail then reacted as if something major had happened with this ridiculous headline today.

The headline may as well read: Corbyn Reminds Dimwits What He Actually Said About Student Debt.

The lunatics at the Sun called this a U-turn—although, at least, they had the decency to keep thier lie to a single column away from the front page, or maybe they were just too embarased to headline this? Whatever the case, it’s still pathetic and desperate.

Clearly, The Sun has lost all touch with reality at this point. How exactly is this a U-turn? Corbyn said he wants to deal with student debt before the GE, he said the same on Marr yesterday, so where is this fucking U-turn? Litterally creating a smear story out of nowhere based on pure lies.

Not content with this utter nonsense and Tory manufactured controversy—Tory HQ are now demanding that Corbyn apologise for breaking promises that he never made.

The Tories smack of desperation—it is frankly sad to see them try this.

As Corbyn pointed out yesterday on Marr the student debt bubble will burst at some point soon anyway—as many financial experts have also pointed out over the years.

Many student loans have been sold off on the cheap by the Tories to private companies, meaning that when the bubble does burst the whole thing will be underwritten by the taxpayer, just like the billion pound taxpayer bank bailouts of 2008.

Bailouts which we are still paying for, from a crash that we didn’t cause, for which austerity was imposed us leading to a 14% real-terms decline in wages.

The absolute nerve of the Tories here is truly shocking: they are the ones who literally hate young people, especially young people who want to go into higher education. One of the first things the Tory-Lib-Dem coalition done when they came into power in 2010 was to triple tuition fees from £3,000 to £9,000 a year and the figure just keeps rising…

Young people are now leaving uni with a debt of around £50,000, essentially imposing us in a life of debt bondage for the crime of wanting to learn.

This to me is the most shocking aspect of all this hatred thrown at Corbyn and young people about the student debt crisis: we are mocked and derided for fighting for an education, something that the whole country should agree is an important and vital part of any civilized country.

Why would you not want people to be highly educated? Why would you not want your children, grand children, yourself—whoever to not be able to receive an education?

It’s a form of insanity to fight against free higher education as it is something we all benefit from as a country.

The Tories who push this anti-education agenda would never, in a million years, apply the same standards to their own children.

They all send their kids to the best universities and schools that money can buy: they know it’s important, they just don’t want anybody else to have the opportunity.

Comparable countries such as Germany and even Scotland have what are essentially free universities—even countries in the third world do—places such as Mexico and Ecuador.

So essentially we are all sitting here waiting for this £100 billion student debt bubble to burst so that the banks can get yet another huge payday from the taxpayer, and until that point, we all have to pretend that nothing can be done about this debt. And then smear the one politician who is taking the issue seriously: absolutely absurd.

Student debt is the one form of debt it’s basically impossible to declare bankruptcy on: for many of us it will hang around our necks for our entire lives and probably follow us to the grave.

The Corbyn student-debt-Tory-lie is a clear and blatant attempt to kill Corbyn’s main support base of young people.

The Tories, of course, completely ignored and dismissed young people as voters: learning their lesson after the general election when we essentially en masse called their bluff.

Now, rather than actually coming up with any policies to appeal to young people the Tories are attempting to smear Corbyn’s policies aimed at helping them.

It is sad, it is desperate, it is pathetic, it is transparently stupid, it won’t work.

Yet, the Tories have nothing else, the MSM has nothing else—this just shows they have literally run out of ideas and have to resort to spending weeks inventing controversy, and then demand that Corbyn apologizes for said controversy.

Let me just end by demanding that the Tories apologize for their many lies: here’s just a few of them.

CCHQ, we’re waiting…..

NO, BBC! This is How To REALLY SPOT Fake News! The DEFINITIVE Must READ Guide To The BIGGEST, MOST DAMAGING PLAGUE Of Our Time!!!!!!!!

NO, BBC! This is How To REALLY SPOT Fake News! The DEFINITIVE Must READ Guide To The BIGGEST, MOST DAMAGING PLAGUE Of Our Time!!!!!!!!

Yesterday (9 May 2017) on BBC One snooze-athon The One (brain cell) Show our fearless leader Theresa May finally spoke — addressing her adoring populous (the BBC One Show Producers and Hosts) — alongside a man who she claimed was her husband.

 

The Show also contained a well-placed guide to spotting fake news — it is in this spirit that I would like to offer my own definitive guide to spotting fake news — thus doing my public duty to rid this plague from our otherwise perfectly, fully functioning democratic country.

May’s appearance was a sad and desperate attempt by her to appear as if she’s an ACTUAL HUMAN BEING.

Of course, the appearance was designed to appeal to middle-aged/middle-England and her raving fanbase of elderly people and Daily Mail fundamentalists — you know — people who CAN ACTUALLY bare to sit through the mind-numbing blandness of the One Show without shooting themselves in the head, or reaching for the “Osborne Special” — gram of extra strong cocaine — just to get through the experience.

 

May One Show
May and May on One Show: SCREENSHOT OF THE PM Wrinkling her face up. I don’t want to go full on Daily Mail here — but I feel this pose is quite Symbolic, none the less.

Sitting next to her was her husband — a man. Watching the happy couple pretend to be in love was certainly a sight for sore eyes — especially for me as I was sticking forks into mine just to stay awake.

 

May has generally kept away from the public — for good reason — she has the Hillary Clinton factor (the more people hear, see, or know about her the less they like her.)

 

This is precisely why she refuses to talk to the public — apart from a select “lucky” few at carefully, stage-managed events.

 

She has previously run away from the public on the campaign trail — and is notoriously fearful of ever talking to the people she demands/scares into voting for her.

 

May is about as likable as smallpox — if it was a choice between the two at the ballot box — it would still be a rough decision.

All she can offer is “strong and stable” a phrase which normally would only be used to describe an antique wooden table. And yet still the table would be preferable, as at least it really is “strong and stable”, making it about a gazillion times more truthful than the notorious bare-faced liar known as May.

 

In between this extended fluff-piece (fluffers being extras that give blowjobs between takes to porn stars to keep them going), we were treated to an enlightened segment about the peril of “fake news”.

The BBC  has decided that fake news is a huge problem — especially with young people. Although, no real evidence could be provided for this claim — as usual the BBC — took it upon themselves to teach the gullible children how to spot fake news.

Could you have more of a trick question? Trump is one of the most incomprehensible people in the world — telling fake Trump from real Trump is almost impossible. I wouldn’t be surprised if real Trump Retweeted fake Trump — unable to tell the difference himself.
sPOT FAKE NEWS — 2
The children learned a lot — mainly what they learned was to trust the BBC. And some cynics say the education system is just brainwashing children into conformity….

Turns out the answer according to the BBC was to trust the establishment media, ie: The BBC.

 

It is in the spirit that I would like to present my own definitive guide to spotting fake news (one of the biggest threats of our time.)

Let’s begin…..it’s complex stuff….so please pay attention.

Step:

  1. Open your internet browser.

  2. Type in the following: WWW.BBC.CO.UK/NEWS

  3. Choose an article (don’t worry it doesn’t matter which one).

  4. Read it carefully.

  5. CONGRATUALTIONS! You’ve now become an expert at spotting fake news!

Whether they be lying about WMD’s in Iraq and sending us into never-ending wars that cause the deaths 100,000’s of innocent people or making up stories about how everyone HATES Jeremy Corbyn or lying about Labour’s financial policy through their corporately funded spokesperson from the IFS — the BBC is the primary place to get your full dose of fake news (even better than this you’re forced to pay for this shit!)

In fact, it would be more surprising to read something actually truthful on the BBC.

You know, with ALL the relevant facts. Not just some that help supports the case they are trying to make — with a tiny amount of counter fact and opinion to give it the illusion of not being bias. But ALL THE FACTS.

It seems like every election the BBC are going to wheel out this fucking fake news BS. They jumped in at the deep end after Trump won the election blaming fake news — which as I said at the time was actually a ruse to try and censor and kill websites like this, or The Canary, or Evolve Politics.

 

A study after the election by Stanford University showed that fake news is unlikely to have been the reason for Trump’s election.

stanford Study Fake News 1stanford Study Fake News 2

Yet, the mainstream media cannot seem to make up its mind about this: on the one hand we have commentariats like Owen Jones saying that social media alone is not enough to get Corbyn elected. Then we have the BBC claiming that fake news (mainly spread through social media) is the reason Trump got elected.

 

Surely then, internet news cannot be both powerful enough to get the president of the US elected, and also so useless that it isn’t enough to get Corbyn elected?

My head hurts from this insane “logic”.

 

The BBC should actually be embarrassed by the fact that they leave so much information out of the “news” they broadcast — yet, they aren’t and won’t ever be.

 

The fact this segment was nestled nicely into the May’s “interview” makes it all the more ironic.

The Tories endless lies — calling Corbyn a “national security threat” and “terrorist sympathizer” and all the other stupid fake news shite they come out with — parroted, endlessly, gleefully in the echo chamber of the BBC and MSM.

Yes, the irony is painful.

The One Show — The Tories — The BBC — all the same thing in the end: propaganda.

Can’t wait until they have Corbyn on.

First question:

Now, Jeremy why do you hate the country, our freedoms, and national security so much?

Followed by:

 

We hear that you have plans to make every single child in the country read Marx’s communist manifesto 8 times EVERY SINGLE day — in the completely impossible event of you (ahahahahahahahahah!) winning on June 8 *sniggers* and beating the most POPULAR BELOVED POLITICIAN on the face of our planet! And her wonderful, caring, loving, husband.

Followed by:

Was it your love for the IRA’s well-known terrorist praiser Gerry Adams that inspired you to grow your Osama bin Laden like beard?

ETC…….

There you have it kids: how to REALLY spot fake news…..

 

WATCH: Corbyn SLAMS Murdoch As Labour Officially Launches GE Campaign

WATCH: Corbyn SLAMS Murdoch As Labour Officially Launches GE Campaign

Labour kicked off their official general election (GE) campaign in Manchester today (9th May 2017).

During his speech at the event, Jeremy Corbyn slammed the “rigged system” of Tory rule — which has seen grotesque levels of wealth inequality rise in this country since they got into power in 2010.

Corbyn directly attacked billionaire media mogul and Mr Burns look alike (and act alike) Rupert Murdoch.

mr-burns-murdoch

After slamming the Tories for “ holding back” the potential of our country through austerity and privatization, Corbyn said:

Britain is a rich country – the sixth richest in the world.

We caught a glimpse of that wealth only two days ago when Rupert Murdoch’s Sunday Times published its Rich List.

In the last year, Britain’s 1,000 richest people have seen their wealth rise by 14 per cent to £658 billion – that’s nearly six times the budget of our NHS.

Imagine the outcry if public sector workers put in for a 14 per cent pay rise.

But it’s no surprise that the richest have got even richer after the tens of billions the Tories have handed them in tax cuts.

That’s what we mean when we say the system is rigged for the rich.

So thanks for making that clear, Mr Murdoch – though I imagine it’s the only help you will give us in this campaign.

In fact, we expect hostility. Our challenge to a rigged system is bound to meet hostility.

WATCH:

And warned that:

there is a real danger that the Tories’ fearmongering and spin machine will make some people settle for less than they should. Resign themselves to things the way they are – underestimating just how many more burdens the Tories could impose if their mission to rig the system for the rich isn’t halted.

We now have 30 days in which to save the country. As Corbyn said today at the speech:

We can transform Britain into a country that – instead of being run for the rich – is a one where everyone can lead richer lives.

So — let’s do it! The stakes couldn’t be higher — this really is our chance to end the neo-liberal hell inflicted on us through Tory brutality.
