“Non Partisan” More United Is Lib Dem Front Group
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.
