Whether it was smearing Mil The Younger over Greville Janner - the Sun article is believed to be the one for which he was paid £2,000 an hour, just for his “contribution” - or his regular Mail On Sunday gig which nets an estimated £1,000 an hour, and is packed every week with clumsy and poorly researched attacks on his own party leadership, Danczuk is doing an awful lot of pissing. And now he seems to be manufacturing smears.
While Sue Helliwell observed of Danczuk “yesterday he and his lady sat in front of us #labnw2015 they giggled and text[ed] whilst Jeremy spoke”, and Joe Public added “And tweeted” - Danczuk claimed in his Tweet to have been listening to the speech he was most likely not listening to - he and “his lady” got ready to pull their smear.
“Reports of bullying by far left at NW Labour Youth Conference reinforces what I've said here” Tweeted Danczuk, referring to his latest MoS article. And Claire Hamilton said more or less the same thing: “Amid reports hard left bullying young members at #LabNW15 this @SimonDanczuk article is well worth a read”. Ms Hamilton is Danczuk’s replacement for now-estranged wife Karen. What a coincidence!
Then a Tweeter called Chris Harms agreed: “there’s just SO MUCH bullying going on”. Ms Hamilton Retweeted it. But he was only taking the piss: “OK you retweeted me but I haven’t actually seen any bullying.... I was being facetious. Sorry!” Ms Hamilton’s disappointment was palpable: “The bullying and the victims of it is [sic] serious. Disappointed you can make such a joke of it. Sad reflection on Party”.
Chris Harms had to put her straight: “I thought we were joking about you RTing my facetious comment? I'm confused … also I’m not a Labour member”. Not doing much homework on that, then, Claire. But eventually a Tweeter called emeraldtime arrived to back the Danczuk view: “It's the truth. Labour Youth candidates who didnt vote Corbyn were punished and conspired against. Intimidation”.
However, and here we encounter a significantly sized however, that account had only been created a few hours earlier, although that did not stop both Danczuk and Ms Hamilton Retweeting the comment, such was their clear desperation. But in the meantime, Joe Public reported “Just had a witness tell me there is no evidence of bullying at Labour Youth Conference”. The name of that witness is known, and is credible.
