Chris Williamson labelled by Twitter as “Iran state-affiliated media.”

Former UK MP and Host of Press TV’s Palestine Declassified Chris Williamson.

For the last few years Chris Williamson has posed a champion of the left. He even set up his own micro-party,  RESISTMovement for a People’s Party (trademarked no less, “based on Festival of Resistance Ltd, the RESIST: Movement for a People’s Party trademark is used in the following business: Political advice; Political advisory services; Political information services; Political lobbying services; Political research and analysis; Political services; Organisation of political meetings. .”). Little has been heard of this movement, whose main attempt at “political meetings” was a venture into a national festival as sad and sparse as a plate of the celebrated Vegan’s left-overs.

Yet all is not going too badly.

The anti-Labour alt-news site Skwawkbox carried a puff piece for the alliance Williamson is involved in.

Rebuilding socialism outside of Labour Phil Bevin (described as former ‘Corbyn LOTO Staffer’: Note: Phil Bevin was a 2022 Workers Party of Britain candidate in Brandwood & King’s Heath in the Birmingham local election. They received 111 votes.)

Now this type has written this:

new shoots of change are growing. An informal coalition is building around the RMT Union via the Trade Union and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) and collaborating groups. TUSC links together the RMT, Socialist Party and Resist. In recent weeks, the Workers’ Party of Britain (aka: George Galloway’s red-brown front with the CPGB (Marxist-Leninist)) has also gained observer status with TUSC. This grouping may presently represent the best hope of a political movement that may one day rival Labour. 

The comrade of small businessman Steve Walker gives vent to this interesting speculation,

through informal relationships, initially tentative ties between a Peace and Justice Party, TUSC and other groups may grow into a powerful electoral alliance.

The Grayzone’s revelation of Paul Mason’s alleged email correspondence with an MI6 agent appears to show the former journalist and would-be Labour MP raising fears about the emergence of an anti-imperialist left outside of Labour. The establishment should be worried, because it is from a loose alliance of anti-imperialist groups, as described in this article, that a meaningful challenge to the status quo will emerge.  

Bevin has, to put it mildly, a ‘thing’ about some issues, “the 2018 “antisemitism crisis”, when the left capitulated to the right’s demands that the party adopt the deeply flawed IHRA definition of antisemitism, leading to a campaign, which activists justifiably describe as “the witch hunt”.”

He has a lot of other ‘theories’,

Just this week, the Grayzone published a report alleging “a plot by pro-Leave elites to sabotage Theresa May’s Brexit deal, infiltrate government, spy on campaign groups, and replace May with Boris Johnson”, which was in play as early as 2018. Former MI6 chief Richard Dearlove, whom emails revealed to have been involved, apparently believed Johnson represented the best chance of “seeing off” Corbyn and “accommodating the Farage Threat.”

The forces working behind the scenes in the pro-Leave camp apparently saw ousting May and a hard Brexit delivered by a Johnson premiership as key to defeating Corbyn. 

It looks as if another chap with lots of theories in this vein is in the line of fire:

This is the duo worrying the ‘Establishment’….

Chris Williamson on ‘Zionist Stranglehold’ on the Music Industry.

with 7 comments

Brown-Red Chris Williamson.

Now on the Iranian clerical fascist regime’s telly.

There were days when Williamson had supporters:

It is no secret that some on the Labour left defended Williamson, actively, they invited him to speak at meetings. 2019:

The Labour MP, Chris Williamson, faces a dressing-down from party officials after he helped to arrange a screening in parliament of a film defending Jackie Walker, the activist suspended from the party over comments about antisemitism.

Labour spokeswoman said it was “completely inappropriate” for the Derby North MP to have booked a room in parliament next Monday for a screening of the film, entitled Witch Hunt.

Labour’s chief whip, Nick Brown, and the party’s general secretary, Jennie Formby, are to contact Williamson to stress their displeasure at his actions and ensure he cancels the booking.

Tony Greenstein’s ‘Crowd Funder’ Closed. He Alleges ‘Zionist Pressure’ At Work.

with 4 comments

Bankrupt Crowd-Funding to Publish “a Very Special Book”.

The Zionist Bookburners Get to Work as My Crowdfunder Gets Taken Down

The Sprucest Man on the Brighton Promenade has a little teaser for us to solve:

“First a riddle. What is the difference between Joseph Goebbels and the Zionist Lobby? Answer: Goebbels burnt books after they were printed.  The Zionists try to burn the books before they are printed.”

He continues,

“The decision by Crowdfunder on Tuesday to cancel my appeal was not only predictable but I predicted it.

Hello Tony,

Your project on Crowdfunder has been flagged as breaching our guidelines. Upon review our team has confirmed that based on the information available the project is in contravention of Crowdfunder’s terms of use.

Unfortunately this means we must now close this project, refunding any pledges back to the supporters. We hope you understand that we have a duty to uphold our Terms of Use and guidelines, in the best interest of the Crowdfunder community.

Greenstein notes,

As George Orwell observed:

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”

The exact same thing happened to Hannah Arendt, the greatest political scientist of the last century, when she published her book Eichmann in Jerusalem

“If you want to help defeat the Zionist Censorship Machine please donate in any one of the following ways”:

1.              You can send a cheque made out to XXXXXXX (redacted) to me at PO Box 173, Brighton BN51 9EZ

2.              You can send a donation to (Reducated).

3. Put Used Notes in a Paper Bag and Give to ‘Honest Arthur’ @ Hole in the Wall. Brighton.

Whether or not this is all true, who knows. It does seem odd that a man who has been declared bankrupt by the Courts only a few months ago is asking for money for a new project…..

One awaits support from Chris Williamson (who has yet to tweet on this) and comment from Greenstein’s one-time prime outlet, the Weekly Worker.

This is only the latest hiccup in Greenstein’s career.

Only a few days ago.

Breaking, Exclusive to the Weekly Worker:

“Joseph Goebbels: has LPM really adopted the same tactic as the chief Nazi propagandist?” (Caption in the Weekly Worker above the article below)

Not a liquidation?

“Abandoning any pretence of class politics, Tony Greenstein defends what he calls the ‘merger’ of LAW and LIEN and advocates yet another ‘transitional’ halfway-house broad front.” (Headline, perhaps not the one of Greenstein’s choice).

The successor to Hannah Arendt and George Orwell, Tony Greenstein, writes:

“Goebbels is reputed to have said that, the bigger the lie and the more often it is repeated, the greater the chance that it will be believed.1 It seems that those who have taken up arms against the merger of Labour Against the Witchhunt and the Labour In Exile Network have adopted the same tactics.”
