By Owen Jones for Uxbridge & South Ruislip Labour Party on CrowdPAC: Boris Johnson is one of the most cynical and damaging people in politics — and one of the frontrunners for the Tory leadership. But Johnson’s majority was more than halved this election — with a massive local campaign powered by your donations, we can beat him next time!
The case to unseat Boris Johnson is overwhelming – and together we can make it happen. Even before his performance in the referendum, Johnson had been sacked twice for lying (by both his newspaper editor and his party leader). He once called black people “piccaninnies” with “watermelon smiles”.
Johnson, who opportunistically backed Brexit because he hoped it would put him in Downing Street. Johnson, who after the election had a radio interview so calamitous that if he was – say – a black woman, his career would be over. Johnson, the Foreign Secretary who regularly reduces this great country to an international laughing stock.
This year we cut Boris Johnson’s majority by more than half without a big campaign — it’s down to only 5,034 votes. If we can persuade just 2517 people, we can beat him. And a general election could be called at any point. We have to campaign now if we want to make sure he’s defeated.

By Owen Jones for Chingford & Woodford Green Labour Party on CrowdPAC: Iain Duncan Smith is the architect of some of the Tories’ cruellest policies. He helped design cuts which devastated the lives of disabled people. Humiliating and distressing work capability assessments. The bedroom tax. Attacks on the low-paid.
In 2015, IDS had a majority of over 8,300. It’s now less than 2,500. With a big push, Iain Duncan Smith will lose his seat. Chingford and Woodford Green: LABOUR GAIN – imagine those words flashing up on your TV screen. And it will be down to you.
A general election could happen at any moment. It could be this year. Jeremy Corbyn has asked us to be on a permanent general election footing. We can only defeat Iain Duncan Smith if we get out there and campaign now.

By Owen Jones on CrowdPAC for Shipley Labour Party: Tory MP Philip Davies is a sexist bigot and a national disgrace. He has repeatedly used his position to undermine legislation tackling domestic and sexual violence against women. He’s demanded the very word “women” is stripped from the women and and equalities committee. In 2016, he spoke at a conference launched by the Justice for Men and Boys party, which publishes disgusting online articles like ’13 reasons women lie about being raped’.
He consistently voted against equal rights for LGBT people, including equal marriage. As you’d expect, he’s also consistently voted for legislation that has caused huge human misery, like the bedroom tax, slashing in-work benefits for the working poor, and lower benefits for disabled people.
This man is not fit to be an MP. In 2015, his majority was 9,642. This year, it more than halved to 4,681. We can defeat Davies. Labour has an inspiring vision – of investment not cuts, of tax justice, of ending tuition fees, a genuine living wage, and public ownership. We also have a grassroots army.

From The Guardian: A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to raise funds for a potential legal challenge to Theresa May’s parliamentary deal with the Democratic Unionist party, on the grounds that it breaches the Good Friday agreement.
Lawyers acting for Ciaran McClean, a Green Party politician in Northern Ireland, allege that the pact between the minority Conservative government and the DUP is in breach of both the landmark 1998 Northern Ireland peace deal and the Bribery Act.
