Predictably bankrupt Javid attacks Corbyn over Syria. Opens mouth, inserts foot

A predictable and ludicrous pattern has emerged in recent months, as the fear of the trouncing they expect in next month’s local elections looms in Tory minds.

Every domestic, or even international, controversy, disaster or atrocity is followed immediately by attempts by the Establishment to link Jeremy Corbyn to it.

When a Russian defector was attacked in Salisbury, Corbyn was labelled a ‘Kremlin stooge’ for insisting on an evidence-based approach to the UK’s response. The fact that these accusations are made by the Tory party, which has received huge donations from Russian oligarchs and by media that often have financial ties to Russia, is not allowed to dampen the nonsensical claims.

When a hateful Facebook comment is made, among tens of thousands in a group with no official connection to the Labour Party, right-wing media and politicians ask what Corbyn will do about it and demand that he shut down whichever group-that-doesn’t-belong-to-the-Labour-Party is in the ‘MSM’ crosshairs at that moment.

And when a chemical attack is alleged in Syria, Sajid Javid – simultaneously managing the trifecta of bankruptcy: moral, intellectual and political – tries ridiculously to exploit it to attack Corbyn’s Labour:

And the ‘Kremlin press release‘- what does that say to so appal Javid?

Labour condemns the attack; calls for a full investigation; for anyone responsible to be brought to justice; for civilians to be protected; for humanitarian aid to be allowed in – and for peace.

Soviet bastards, eh?

But Mr Javid only exposed his own party’s soft, hypocritical underbelly on the topic of Syria – as on so much else.

In 2013, Jeremy Corbyn was co-sponsor of Early Day Motion 503, which called on the government to end the promotion and export of arms to authoritarian regimes – and particularly condemns Russia and Syria:

EDM 503 is just one of many times Corbyn has intervened in Parliament to censure Syria.

Javid, by contrast, appears never to have signed any early day motion – on any topic at all – in his entire parliamentary career, even as a back-bencher (front-benchers do not normally sign them).

In fact, his meaningful parliamentary contributions on the topic appear to be limited to asking a question once about the whereabouts of a wounded British journalist.

The government ignored EDM 503 and took no steps to curb the promotion or export of arms.

On the contrary, the following year it was revealed that it had allowed UK firms to sell the components required to produce the nerve-agent Sarin to the Syrian government.

The nerve-agent that was used to kill eighty Syrian civilians just over a year ago.

 

Comment:

Could there be a clearer indicator of the Tories’ absolute bankruptcy of ideas and political ideas than their pavlovian enslavement to trying to use every bad thing that happens in the world to smear Corbyn by association – no matter what depths of hypocrisy they have to sink to?

  2. Has Sadiq addressed the disgusting Islamophobic comments posted on the official Tory Facebook page yet?
    What are the Tories doing to address the problem they have with these openly racist members and/or supporters?

  3. All very well sponsoring early day motions & all that shizzle

    But javid’s father arrived here with just £1 in his pocket, you know?

    Just try & beat THAT, Corbyn…

    • So what the heck has Javid’s father only have £1 on arrival in this country got anything to do with Killing in Syria. Has his father put that £1 to increasing his personal wealth or to preventing the sale of arms to terrorist countries. On the other point did he receive benefits which not only allowed him to stay in this country but to support him in creating wealth? If so then Javid should be supporting all those on benefit to help them to achieve a similar level of wealth.

      • The irony is that javid snr came here at a time when the toerags wanted immigrants (Islamics and hindus from the sub-continent, as well as afro-caribbeans) out.

        …Except they still do.

        And yet javid snr has probly worked harder than javid jnr – who has become ‘the acceptable face of immigration’ to the toerags.

        How did he do that? Well javid jnr was once a banker…and a landlord…Still is, IIRC. Produces nothing but rakes it in off those who do…

        So – what’s javid jnr got to say about belonging to a party that has shown anti-islamic sentiment time & again over a period of decades?

        Not a lot. But he’ll happily call other people anti-semitic

        javid, like the rest of them – should go away & shut up.

      • Should read:

        ‘But he’ll happily call other people anti-semitic, russian stooges, terrorist sympathisers and the rest of the usual bollocks, without an sense of irony or shame.

  4. Javid is a truly nasty piece of work. Not only is he vile about a Labour party that actually represents poor people, and has a huge membership, to which the Tory Party could never aspire, and which he has never thought ‘great’, the disingenuous prick, he is also vile to his own Tory Party Councillors . He lambasted them in the most vile terms in 2016 for complaining about such massive cuts that many Tory Councils predicted bankruptcy (Northampton has already gone belly up), while care for vulnerable elderly in homes has reached such a state due to Council budget cuts, old people are dying earlier- sometimes on trolleys in NHS hospitals where they have been left for 8 hours after being collected in an ambulance four hours after being called, because of NHS cuts.

  5. JUMP-IN SAJID JAVID
    FOR THE TORIES TRIES TO DO HIS WORST!
    AND INSTEAD OF CALM, CONSIERED AND RATIONAL.
    SENDS IN HIS RIGHT WING GOB FIRST!

    • Everytime that he shaves he consults the shiny crystal ball in the mirror and is able to foretell the future.

  6. TO THE NEO-LIBERAL CAPITALISTS WHO KILL THE PLANET FOR PROFIT AND PURSUE WAR FOR PROFIT TOO – YOU ARE THE BARBARIANS OF OF HUMANITY!
    Oh evidence light our human soul.
    ‘Just Give Us Some Truth’ please do.
    As fake news comes from the powerful.
    Sows divisions amongst the many, not the few.
    Poor Veritas weeps at grotesque lies.
    And in the legal capitalist thieves’ name.
    Time oh Left Wing Democratic Socialist Stars..
    To light the peaceful, democratic flame!
    X & JC4PM!

  7. Sajid Javid, if brains were dynamite, he wouldn’t have enough to blow his cap off!
    He should, if he only could, think twice, before opening his Tory Trap. Spilling out his lies, about something he knows nothing about, only what he’s been told by the other lying Tory that told him!
    Javid, why don’t you tell us all, about all your Tory Party dealings with the Russian Oligarchs?
    You talk of complicity, with the very same Russian Money that’s being used to backup your Party, along with a huge sum of that same money being paid too the likes of Johnson for tennis lessons!
    “YOU ARE A BLOODY HYPOCRITE JAVID”!
    ALONG WITH ALL YOUR LIKE MINDED FELLOW TORIES!
    The sooner you all get your arses kicked out of politics, “the EFFIN BETTER”!
