Alan Johnson has been dragged out to support Yvette Cooper who is now deemed the only one capable of stopping Jeremy Corbyn. Shot in the arm, if you believe ultra-right-wing Tory Norman Smith. Kiss of death is my assessment.
The Blairites are right about one thing: Andy Burnham’s campaign has been a car crash from beginning to end. Andy has disgusted those to his left and right in equal measure. No one trusts someone who can’t make his mind up from one minute to the next if he’ll give Jeremy Corbyn a job or not, whether he told a joke or not, whether it is or is not right to vote against robbing the poor to pay bail out George Osborne’s drug abusing, prostitute abusing class of out-of-control bankers who wrecked the economy.
Not only will Andy Burnham now find it hard to secure any second-preference votes from anyone; he’s highly likely to find most of those pretending to be in his camp actually vote for Yvette Cooper in the secret, although some would clearly like to shift directly to Liz Kendall, an out-and-out Tory.
Ultra-Blairite Rachel Reeves has clearly been a Liz Kendall spy in Andy Burnham’s camp from the very beginning, while Tony Blair’s pal Lord Falconer is more likely to have been spying for Yvette Cooper or possibly sharing secrets with both of these Blairites, keeping his options open simply because he couldn’t tell in advance just how badly the Blairites would get on.
Alan Johnson is a rat of the highest order. Alan Johnson is one of half a dozen Labour Home Secretaries who have enthusiastically covered up, for example, the child sex abuse at Kincora for half a century. He has done this while smearing supporters of MI5 whistle-blower Colin Wallace.
Colin Wallace was the Edward Snowden of many years ago. Alas, his attempts to expose the crimes of British Intelligence vis-a-vis child rape at Kincora were unsuccessful, partly due to creeps like Alan Johnson.
Colin Wallace also attempted to expose by rogue elements in British Intelligence out to overthrow Harold Wilson’s government. MI5-friendly so-called journalists smeared this as the fantasties of a mentally-ill Walter Mitty fantasist. Nevertheless, it strikes me as very likely. Don’t forget that Margaret Thatcher’s chum overthrew Salvador Allende’s democratically-elected socialist government. And MI5 told Tony Benn they’d overthrow his if they couldn’t defeat him at the ballot box.
Alan Johnson has pinned his colors to the mast. He will do whatever it takes to stop Tony Benn’s favorite MP (and mine as well, by the way) – Jeremy Corbyn – being able to shine a light on the dark heart of MI5’s threats to assassinate British Prime Ministers. And he will simultaneously expose MI5’s use of blackmailed pedophiles at the heart of the Thatcher government and British Establishment, including MI5 and MI6 themselves.
And Jeremy Corbyn will also expose industrial scale state rape, perjury and psychological torture of women (and male?) victims of Special Branch state rapists like Bob Lambert and god knows how many others, all paid by our taxes, diverted by Alan Johnson and Theresa May into infiltrating the socialist and trade union movement. And all to stop Britain having a genuinely democratic debate and freedom from blackmailers and child rapists.
