“Non Partisan” More United Is Lib Dem Front Group

July 26, 2016

By Paul Homewood 




Latest post from Guido, who, to those not familiar with him, is the scourge of the Establishment in the UK:


This weekend saw the launch of More United, “a tech-driven political startup” which wants a closer relationship with the EU, more immigration and action on climate change. It is as dreary as it sounds – basically all the worst people from the referendum teaming up to virtue signal and cry about losing. Celeb backers include the most frightful bores like Dan Snow and Caroline Criado-Perez. But who is working at More United behind the scenes?

Well, top LibDem Paddy Ashdown is a director. As is Elizabeth Mayhew, Nick Clegg’s former correspondence secretary. Then there is LibDem peer Rumi Verjee. And former LibDem press officers Debbie Gore and Autin Rathe. As well as former LibDem candidate Maajid Nawaz and one time LibDem supporter Sunny Hundal. What a surprise that this collection of metropolitan losers masquerading as a non-partisan political movement is just a front group for tired old LibDems. Why not get former Clegg and BSE spokesman James McGrory in to do the comms? It’s guff like this that lost them the referendum… 


Many of my generation will remember Private Eye magazine, which similarly held the establishment to account in the 1960s. It is extremely sad to report that the Eye, under the editorship of the BBC enthralled (and paid) Ian Hislop, has long lost that soubriquet. Indeed Hislop and co are now more part of that establishment than the Archbishop of Canterbury was fifty years ago.

    Not putting any candidates up for election doesn’t seem like a winning formula somehow. I suppose that it does avoid the bad publicity they would get by putting up candidates and then having hardly anyone vote for them. Or is our democracy now so screwed that these people can gain more power and influence without having to bother?

      The Lefty-Greens have realised that they are splitting their vote and are beginning to do something about it, this organisation will seek to promote common policies across parties, such as worship of the EU and of the so-called Battle against Climate Change.

      The centre-right needs to do likewise, promoting common policies such as getting electricity companies to generate low-cost electricity, and getting farms to grow food, rather than being wildlife-friendly carbon storage areas.

    Here’s a copy of an email I sent to PE in 2012. Given that Ingrams left to found Oldie should Hislop go off and found ancient.
    Ingrams – 49, when he resigned as being to old!
    Ian Hislop – 52, over the hill and far away or should be by now.

    What we need is for comedians to take the piss out of these people mercilessly. The don’t deserve any more serious consideration. They are now beyond a joke, highlighted by the fact that they still think themselves as relevant.

    Just remember even if we all live another 50 years these statements will be no truer then than now.

    There is no such thing as a greenhouse gas.
    CO2 has NO influence over our climate
    Anthropogenic Global warming is non existent and by extension are all its offshoots.
    The whole thing has been a scam to extra more of our money from us for the élite’s to spend on themselves.

    “An open and tolerant society where diversity is celebrated in all its forms”

    “Policy example: Strengthen anti-hate laws.”

    So not so diverse and tolerant that you don’t impose what can and cannot be said then.

    Do they actually know what “tolerant” and “diversity” mean I wonder?

    Unfair. After forty years of subscribing I still get a decent amount of “inside” info from Hislop and his merry men. I think the fear of litigation is ever present though and I have to admit that some of the edge has gone. I shall not be “cancelling my subscription”.
