LABOUR’s policy chief Andrew Fisher has sensationally quit overnight.
Fisher denounced the leader’s team for their “lack of professionalism, competence and human decency” and said he was sick of their “blizzard of lies and excuses”.
He also claimed “class war” has gripped the upper echelons of the party.
However, he apparently does intend to stay around for a snap election. Go figure.
TBG thinks Labour are now engaged in a game of damage limitation and that what is happening in Brighton [READ TBG's Labour news feed] underlines the real reason why Labour were opposed to the U.K. Parliament prorogue.
So now we know why Labour were so opposed to Boris proroguing the U.K. Parliament in order to bring on the government’s post Brexit agenda.
First, they can’t make up their own minds as to the direction of the party.
Second, civil war is rife everywhere with Momentum gunning for Tom Watson and trying to scrap Labour Students.
And third, they are completely clueless on Brexit.
So here’s my prediction.
Such is the civil war in Labour that many of their MPs will now back a Boris Deal and what Theresa May failed to do in two years, Boris Johnson will do in two months.
It’s called “bold leadership!”
TBG has learned this morning that Tony Blair’s old flat mate from his uni days, Lord Charlie Falconer, is saying that the scrapping of Labour Students could have been done illegally, is invalid, and breaks party rules.
The peer has now written to the party’s General Secretary, Jennie Fornby, to say that the motion to shut it down was “based upon false information.”
The move to scrap Labour Students was another Act by multi millionaire Momentum founder Jon Lansman who also tried to get Deputy Leader Tom Watson sacked.
Watson himself is a former chair of the centrist Labour Students.
In a letter to Labour’s General Secretary, Lord Falconer says - “That motion is invalid and of no effect because it is based explicitly on a series of false factual premises, and fails to pay any regard to the current rules of the Labour party.”
“The legal position is Labour Students remain an affiliate and the motion has no effect.”

HOURS after Jeremy Corbyn bottled out of sacking Tom Watson, Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry has Tonight dared the party leader to sack her.
Thornberry was at the forefront of a march in the centre of Brighton calling for a People’s Vote earlier and a rally on the beach alongside Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer.
Tonight Thornberry has suggested Labour could agree to back a Brexit deal negotiated by Boris Johnson and the Tories on the condition that a second referendum is held.
Thornberry Tells tomorrow’s Sunday Express - “I think it’s something we would have to consider.”
“We would have to consider it seriously.”
“It’s a really, really big decision that the country has to make.”
“I think it wouldn’t be right for Labour to have no opinion on such a big decision.”
And in direct opposition to Corbyn, Thornberry said, "I will pledge to carry out whatever the people decide, as a Labour prime minister."
Earlier, Keir Starmer told the People’s Vote rally "It’s very important members are heard on this."
“This weekend we are having an intense discussion about this, so that we can see if we can agree a position everyone can get behind.”
“Any polling of members and any engagement with members demonstrates that the majority back remain, and therefore we have to listen to their views on this, but we do have to agree a position that everyone is comfortable with.”
If ever there was an opposition leader that lacked bottle it has to be Jeremy Corbyn.
I thought Theresa May was the ace midfielder in the pack when it came to kicking the ball into the long grass but now even Jeremy Corbyn easily beats her.
Instead of standing up to lefties like the Momentum rag, all Jeremy Corbyn did as regards Tom Watson, was shift the issue off the agenda ready for another fight on another day.
As a result, the man who wants to be Prime Minister of the U.K. has less power than even his own deputy.
Instead of standing by his manifesto promise and getting us out of the EU like Boris Johnson is now trying to do, all Jeremy Corbyn wants is yet another negotiation, except this time Leave isn’t even on the ballot paper.
The choice at the next election is now clear:
Either stay out of the EU once we have left on October 31st or elect a Prime Minister who now plans to renegotiate returning to an Empire that is now begging on it’s knees to do business now they know that thanks to proroguing the traitors at Westminster, we are finally leaving.
THE Labour Party have been busy revoking clearance passes to attend their conference that starts this weekend.
First a journalist for fear he will cause trouble regards antisemitism and now Labour Students have apparently had their passes void too, TBG can sensationally reveal.
A tweet by former Labour insider and former party adviser Ayesha Hazarika says - "Just heard that Labour Students had their delegate passes revoked without any prior warning."
One former Labour Students member, who has since joined the Lib Dem's told TBG - "Labour students who supported Remain gave Labour their support in good faith."
"In return Labour have closed them down and revoked their voting rights."
The news comes as Momentum boss is to motion abolishing the Labour Students Group, as well as gunning for Deputy Leader Tom Watson.
