When Johnson smeared Starmer in the House of Commons he said that Starmer had prosecuted journalists but not Jimmy Saville. One newspaper report of the incident yesterday when a jeering mob surrounded Starmer said that there were shouts of “Assange”. Does anybody know if, when he was Director of Public Prosecutions, Starmer prosecuted Assange? Is that what Johnson was referring to?February 8, 2022 at 3:38 pm #226233
ALB – I think this link to Craig Murray’s recent post will answer your question:February 8, 2022 at 7:07 pm #226235
Thanks. There could be something in it as this is being spread by the Labour left and not just Johnson and the far-right.
According to this when the mob was shouting “traitor” they meant “traitor to the working class”.
“Traitor to the working calss
Men could be heard bellowing “traitor to the working class” before police stepped in to rescue Starmer and walked him to the safety of a police car.”
And here’s Ken Loach on the subject.
Labour Heartlands seem to be a leftwing Corbynista blog? I think they are still in the Labour Party. Can anyone confirm this?February 9, 2022 at 12:37 am #226236Bijou DrainsParticipant
Should we consider asking Murray to have an interview in the Standard, we have done before, Tony Benn and Im pretty sure we had an interview in the early days with Paul Lafargue. It doesn’t mean that we agree, but I’m sure it would add a few copies to the Standard.February 9, 2022 at 8:20 am #226242
You’re right – it doesn’t mean that we/they agree on everything, but truth tellers are few and far it seems. So much of our daily news is contaminated by journalists answering the demands of their masters. A breath of fresh air is good for all.February 9, 2022 at 8:55 am #226243
Just read another one worthy of a read on this subject:

Today’s Times says that the person who shouted about “what about the working man”.
“One man approaching Starmer was Eillism Coleshill, a former Tory councillor who is co-editor-in-chief of the anti-lockdown YouTube channel Resistance GB, which made a recording of the incident. Coleshill, who was suspended from the party making racist remarks, shouted at Starmer : ‘Why aren’t you standing up for our constitution? Why aren’t you standing up for Labour, for the working-class man?”
Doesn’t sound like a Corbynista, at least not a Jeremy one.March 14, 2022 at 8:20 pm #227724
Assange has moved a step closer to a US trial on espionage charges after the UK’s highest court refused to hear his appeal against extradition.

Given the current war hysteria he doesn’t stand a chance, quite apart from Priti Patel being keen to kick one more foreigner.March 15, 2022 at 12:56 am #227736
The hypocrisy of highlighting the censorship and jailing of journalists by Russia and treatment of Assange for his reporting is astounding.
It is due to WikiLeaks that we know of the foreign interference in Ukraine’s internal politics during the 2014 coup.April 23, 2022 at 3:43 am #228944
