How does Jeremy do this?

The former Labour Cabinet minister, Yvette Cooper, has revealed how she has been subjected to death threats online, with one abuser telling her she should be “beheaded”.

Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, Ms Cooper said it was an example of the increasingly vicious internet abuse that Labour MPs suffer and demanded that Jeremy Corbyn act to stamp it out.

Right, OK, so he’s out of power and Twitter is in the US anyway.

Although from not a Labour party member, the beheading threat against Ms Cooper illustrates the growing problem of online abuse, which she says Mr Corbyn must now address.

To be honest here, what the fuck has this to do with Corbyn?

  1. Deselect her? Why any MP who screwed the tax payer to the extent Pixie and Ed did are still allowed to take our shilling is beyond me.
    Any public servant should be given the bums rush immediately and stripped of pension for such an abuse of trust and position.

  2. Twitter is not for grownups so why should she pay the adolescent fantascists using it any attention? Unless her development is similarly retarded?

  3. I think it is suggested that Corbyn has quietly authorised aides to encourage viciousness and abuse among his rank and file supporters.

    I have no idea what is the evidence for this suggestion but, if it has any merit then I imagine that’s what La Cooper is getting at. If so, I don’t know why she needs me to explain it for her. Apparently.

  4. Because the scum of the Earth –mainly socialist but all state-sucking slime–want control over the Internet.

    Look how that vile cunt Killery is failing because the state’s mainstream media stooges are no longer believed.

    Abuse is just the excuse.

    And who –in the world at this present time –is the grouping fondest of beheading?

    Cooper can piss up her leg and play with the steam.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    The aim is to shame. If Corbyn tries to do anything, if he even shows any regret at all, he is smeared by association. It is the first step towards insisting that Corbyn accept that the Balls have the moral high ground.

    He should tell them to f**k off.

  6. Simples.

    Yvette is a weak and feeble female

    Jermy is a man.

    Ok, perhaps not much of one, but he qualifies and therefore must protect the female. Those are the established gender roles.

    He needs to step up.

  7. What Edward Lud said. It’s not about general Twitter abuse, it’s about this Corbyn personality cult that exists on Twitter. Corbyn could just tell these people to pack it in, and they’d probably lay off. But he won’t.

    What Corbyn and his people are doing is quite simple, but quite clever. The front man is this rather harmless looking old man who makes jam and rides a bike around, but behind him are a group of people who are going to force out the electable end of the Labour party.

  8. Bloke in Wiltsire – “The front man is this rather harmless looking old man who makes jam and rides a bike around, but behind him are a group of people who are going to force out the electable end of the Labour party.”

    I don’t think that is Corbyn’s doing though. The radicals often hide behind a front man. A Neguib to a Nasser for instance. A Bani Sabr to a Khomeini.

  9. “To be honest here, what the fuck has this to do with Corbyn?”

    Never let an opportunity go unexploited.

    Corbyn’s mob are vile, but don’t let that obscure the fact that the Blairites are the most cynical bunch of cunts in British history.

  10. Pardon me if I’m mistaken or even bigoted here, but wasn’t Yvette Cooper a senior member of the government which actively imported lots of foreign gentlemen for whom beheading is what the internet now calls “a thing”?

    And pardon me again if I use forbidden or at best antediluvian words such as “consequences” and “responsibility”.

  11. Jermy is a man.

    But such a gangly and dessicated specimen that he looks like a daddy-long-legs that’s landed on an aga.

  12. It’s not Corbyn’s fault, but he commands the respect of his followers. If he orders them to stop trolling party members, they’ll probably obey.

    It’s all rather mild though. In countries like South Africa, supporters get away with far worse.

  13. Concerned–leftist shite like you will be the first to know.

    Cos that slogan-shouting “mental illness” is everywhere you know.

    Unless you’re white and favour Brexit of course.

  14. SMFS,

    Yes, you’re right. I doubt Corbyn is orchestrating it – he’s too pathetic to do that. But he’s also too pathetic to stand up to the people who are.

  15. It appears though that Yvette was demanding Corbyn go after Labour members participating in online threats and use party discipline against them. Something he could agree to. He won’t because its part of the plan.

    I think she would have made a decent (and electable) Labour party leader. Fortunately they got Corbyn instead.

    @Machiavelli – at the time of the expenses scandal, I dug into the Balls-Cooper claims and they were clean. They claimed a lot, but all legal as far as I could see.

  16. Cooper and the NuLab lot didn’t mind abuse when it was delivered on their behalf by scum like Campbell.

    As Ecks points out, this crybully nonsense is all about power. Just like when the Graun decided to conflate 3 nutters (allegedly) threatening to rape their female columnists with 3,000 people pointing out how utterly wrong and stupid they are.

  17. In countries like South Africa, supporters get away with far worse.

    If they think the viewing figures for the Olympics or Bake Off are good, wait until they start televising the necklacing of the rump Blairites.

  18. The Inimitable Steve

    But such a gangly and dessicated specimen that he looks like a daddy-long-legs that’s landed on an aga.

    Magnifique!

    Actually the heart of the old NuLab darkness was not Campbell or Mandelson (unpleasant and evil though they are), it was in the Brownite operation, the likes of Damien Mcbride, who did go out of their way to smear their colleagues. Tom Watson is another Brownite specialising in unpleasantness. Of course, their leader also took care to keep his hands clean.

    Yvette has form on this point, it was one of her supporters who put up the tories for Liz Kendall site.

    Labour really are the nasty party.

  20. @ken

    Many of the claims by MPs were, like those of Balls and Copper, we’re indeed legal.

    Like many of the claims made in company tax returns.

    Funny how MPs used the former as a justification and still howled in moral outrage about the latter.

    Hypocritical cunts.

  21. ken,

    “I think she would have made a decent (and electable) Labour party leader. Fortunately they got Corbyn instead.”

    I’d say she was the best of the bunch.

    But I think, deep down, Labour have been dying for decades. It was dead when Neil Kinnock lost to John Major.
