This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-45193514 about the thirty men and one woman who have been charged with offences linked to child sexual exploitation in Huddersfield includes the names of those that the police have said can be named.
The BBC say that: 'The offences relate to five women when they were aged between 12 and 18, and are alleged to have taken place between 2005 and 2012.' I would say that if they were under 18 when the offences took place then they were children.
Twelve men, who cannot be named for legal reasons, have been charged with "numerous offences in connection with the same investigation", police said.
Here's the names of the individuals that West Yorkshire Police say can be named:
Banaras Hussain 37, of Shipley, charged with one count of rape of a female over 16
Banaris Hussain, 35, of Huddersfield, charged with one count of rape of a girl aged 13-15
Mohammed Suhail Arif, 30, of Huddersfield, charged with rape of girl aged 13-15
Iftikar Ali, 37, of Huddersfield, charged with attempted rape of girl aged 13-15 and three counts of rape of a girl aged 13-15
Mohammed Sajjad, 31, of Huddersfield, charged with four counts of rape of a female age 13-15, one rape of a girl under 13 and facilitating the commission of a child sex offence
Fehreen Rafiq, 38, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of facilitating the commission of a child sex offence
Umar Zaman, 30, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Basharat Hussain, 31, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Amin Ali Choli, 36, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of rape of a female over 16-years-old
Shaqeel Hussain, 35, of Dewsbury, charged with rape of a female aged 13-15 and two counts of trafficking
Mubasher Hussain, 35, of Huddersfield, charged with rape of a female aged 13-15 and sexual assault
Abdul Majid, 34, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of rape of female aged 13-15
Mohammed Dogar, 35, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of facilitating the commission of child sex offence
Usman Ali, 32, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Mohammed Waqas Anwar, 29, of Huddersfield, charged with five counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Gul Riaz, 42, of Huddersfield, charged with rape of a female aged 13-15
Mohammed Akram, 41, of Huddersfield, charged with two counts of trafficking with a view to sexual exploitation of a female and rape of a female aged 14-15
Manzoor Akhtar, 29, of Huddersfield, charged with trafficking and three counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Samuel Fikru, 30, of Camden, charged with two counts of rape of a female aged 13-15
Can you see any connection between those named above? Tricky isn't it?
Munich widows: Jeremy Corbyn 'has no place in politics or in decent humane society' per The Jewish Chronicle
'... in a Morning Star article Mr Corbyn wrote shortly after the event, he said said that wreaths had been laid "on the graves of those who died that day" in 1986, "and on the graves of others killed by Mossad agents in Paris in 1991."
There were no Palestinians killed in Paris by Mossad in 1991. However, there were in 1992 – members of the Black September terror group who had been responsible for the Munich attack, who are buried where Mr Corbyn was photographed placing the wreath.'
Maybe the BBC could press Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters as to why he openly stated that he was there when wreaths were placed including on the Black September members' graves in his Morning Star piece but denies it now. Was he lying then or is he lying now?

I don't recall lefty types up in arms at Emily Thornberry's comments re wearing the burqua.
"I wouldn't want my four year old looked after by somebody wearing a burka. I wouldn't want my elderly mum looked after by somebody wearing a burka. They need to be able to show their face," she told a BBC Question Time audience in 2013.
One might think that Boris Johnson was being attacked for other reasons.
Ambassador condemns Jeremy Corbyn's support for pair convicted over bombing of Jewish targets in UK per The Jewish Chronicle
This JC article https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/jeremy-corbyn-support-for-those-convicted-of-terror-attacks-on-jews-in-the-uk-1.468297 informs me about something that I didn't know about Jeremy Corbyn.
'Jeremy Corbyn's support for two people who were jailed for their part in the bombing of Israel's embassy in London was "clear and blatant support of terrorism" and as bad as his attendance at a ceremony that honoured Black September terrorists, the ambassador at the time of the attack has said.
Mr Corbyn was part of a campaign to free Samar Alami and Jawad Botmeh, who were convicted of conspiracy to cause explosions after two car bomb attacks in London on July 26, 1994.
The first bomb exploded at the Israeli embassy, injuring 14 people. Thirteen hours later, a second bomb exploded, injuring six more people, outside Balfour House in North Finchley, the headquarters of a number of Jewish charities, including the Joint Israel Appeal, the forerunner of the UJIA.
Moshe Raviv, who was ambassador from 1993 to 1998, was in Israel at the time of the bombing and was speaking to his assistant in London when the line went dead.'
What more can be reported about Jeremy Corbyn before his supporters see the light? Unless they like him because of his vile views.
Another day, another image linking Jeremy Corbyn to murderous, antisemitic Islamists.
'Jeremy Corbyn has been condemned for making the salute of an Islamist organisation which was described by a Government inquiry as "counter to British values and democracy".
The Labour leader was pictured making the four-fingered Rabbi'ah sign, a symbol of the Muslim Brotherhood, during a visit to Finsbury Park mosque in his Islington North constituency.
The Brotherhood has been accused of engaging in terrorist activities and is proscribed across much of the Middle East and in Russia.
A counter-extremism activist compared Mr Corbyn's behaviour to a right-wing politician showing support for the BNP.'
Read more here https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/08/14/jeremy-corbyn-condemned-image-emerges-making-muslim-brotherhood2/ in The Telegraph but obviously not on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.
Poor BBC having to report who has been named re the Westminster attack https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45193781
'The man being held on suspicion of terrorism after the Westminster car crash has been named as Salih Khater by government sources.
The 29-year-old British citizen, originally from Sudan, is being questioned in south London.'
Top Hamas terror chiefs who said Jews 'headed to annihilation' named at Corbyn conference in Tunisia per Daily Mail Online
The Mail reports http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6060337/Terror-chiefs-said-Jews-headed-annihilation-named-Corbyn-conference-Tunisia.html what Jeremy Corbyn has claimed happened at the 2014 Tunisian Conference.
'The Labour leader has tried to present the conference as an attempt to 'try and promote peace in the Middle East'.
He said: 'The only way we achieve peace is by bringing people together and talking to them. That was the whole point of the conference and, frankly, the whole point of my life.''
And that's as far as the BBC would go with reporting on Jeremy Corbyn's words. The Mail has more:
'But the list of delegates, unearthed by MailOnline, is littered with extremists, far-Left agitators, terror sympathisers and Islamists. In addition to the Hamas leaders, Sinn Feinn MP Francie Molloy, who taunted Britons as being 'best' at murder, was there.
They included Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar, who said killing Jewish children was 'legitimate'. In a TV interview, he added that Jews were 'hungry dogs and wild beasts', who had 'no future among the nations of the world' and were 'headed to annihilation'.
Also named was Mousa Marzook, the Hamas second-in-command who is designated as a terrorist by the United States and was found guilty of financing terror by an American court.
The pair appeared on a list of delegates due to appear at the conference in 2014, where another top Hamas member, Oussama Hamdan, praised violence as 'magnificent' and a Tunisian politician said that ISIS and Israel were 'the same thing'.
Yesterday, MailOnline revealed Hamas leader Oussama Hamda, who spoke at the conference, had just given an interview to Lebanese media in which he said that the anti-Semitic myth that Jews drank Christian blood was 'not a figment of imagination or something taken from a film. It is a fact.' '
Maybe someone could ask Jeremy Corbyn why he appears on platforms with people who spread the blood libel, people who say that killing Jewish children is legitimate and that Jews are dogs and beasts.

Why is no one asking about Jeremy Corbyn’s worrying connections? Per James Bloodworth in The Guardian in 2015
Don't say that you weren't warned. Read the whole piece, it's on the money apart from... "I genuinely believe that Corbyn does not have an antisemitic bone in his body" - that now seems wishful thinking or delusional.
'Then there is Corbyn's apparent proximity to antisemitism. While I genuinely believe that Corbyn does not have an antisemitic bone in his body, he does have a proclivity for sharing platforms with individuals who do; and his excuses for doing so do not stand up.
Take the fact that Corbyn once described it as his "honour and pleasure" to host "our friends" from Hamas and Hezbollah in parliament. According to Corbyn, he extended his invitation to the aforementioned groups – and spoke of them glowingly – because all sides need to be involved in the peace process.
So far, so reasonable. Yet negotiation is not on Hamas's agenda, as Corbyn ought to know. In its charter Hamas states: "Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement… There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through jihad."
It isn't a peaceful negotiated solution that Hamas wants; it's the destruction of the Jews. Here is a direct quote from Hamas's charter: "The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: 'The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!'" If this were not bad enough, Corbyn has also:
• Taken tea on the parliamentary terrace with Raed Salah, who he described as "a very honoured citizen" despite that fact that Salah was charged with inciting anti-Jewish racism and violence in January 2008 in Jerusalem and sentenced to eight months in prison. He was found by a British court judge to have used the "blood libel", the medieval antisemitic canard that Jews use gentile blood for ritual purposes;
• Written a letter defending Stephen Sizer, the vicar disciplined by the Church of England for linking to an article on social media entitled 9/11: Israel Did It;
• Presented a call-in programme on Press TV, a propaganda channel of the Iranian government which was banned by Ofcom and which regularly hosts Holocaust deniers;
• Been accused of donating money to self-proclaimed Holocaust denier Paul Eisen, whose Deir Yassin Remembered group has been shunned by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, in the name of refusing to "turn a blind eye to antisemitism". Corbyn has addressed that claim via his spokesman, who said that "Jeremy Corbyn's office" had had no contact with Eisen and that Corbyn disassociated himself from his extreme views – a denial that seems neither forceful nor convincing.
And there is more: on 22 August Corbyn is scheduled to share a platform with Carlos Latuff, a cartoonist who regularly uses antisemitic imagery in his cartoons but denies being antisemitic. Middle East Monitor, the group organising the event, has been accused by the Community Security Trust of promoting conspiracy theories and myths about Jews.'
Over and over again Corbyn is seen to associate with antisemites, those who want to destroy Israel and kill all Jews, and yet his followers and the BBC turn a blind eye.
What will it take to revolt the BBC enough? What will it take to get his followers to forsake him? Short of seeing video of him singing "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free" whilst burning an Israeli flag and pissing on a Sefer Torah I can't think of anything.*
*For the avoidance of doubt, I don't believe Jeremy Corbyn has ever pissed on a Sefer Torah. I doubt that he's ever set fire to an Israeli flag but it's highly possible that he's been at an event where Israeli flags were burned. As for singing "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free" that seems eminently believable. Why should that matter you may ask. Because that means supporting, not a two state solution to the Israel/Palestinian issue but a single state, another Muslim state. However I believe that that position is common to many of his supporters and a fair number at the institutionally anti Israel BBC.

Meanwhile rumours circulate of the big Jeremy Corbyn antisemitism reveal coming tomorrow, we will see...
Westminster car crash: Man arrested on suspicion of terror offences per BBC News, can you spot what they've omitted from the report?
This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45180120 on the incident in Westminster includes this description of the person arrested at the scene:
'Images posted to social media showed a man in handcuffs being led away from the car by officers after the crash.'
More information than that exists elsewhere, here's Breitbart https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/08/14/car-strikes-cyclists-houses-of-parliament-security-barrier-armed-police-response/
'Described as being a black male in his late twenties, the driver is reported to have been arrested for suspected terrorism offences and was seen being led away in handcuffs by officers.'
The Times report:
'A man has been arrested on suspicion of terrorism offences after a car ploughed into pedestrians outside the Houses of Parliament this morning.
Armed police dragged out the driver of the silver hatchback that careered into a barrier at about 40mph, hitting two people just after 7.30am. Witnesses described flames and smoke coming from the car. A black man in jeans and a puffa jacket was seen being held by about a dozen officers as emergency services rushed to the scene and police put in place a "terrorism act cordon" around Parliament Square, extending down Whitehall. '
The Guardian omits the same piece of information as the BBC:
' A man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences after a car crashed into a number of cyclists and pedestrians before hitting security barriers outside the Houses of Parliament in London, police have said.'
Interesting how the left mind works.
CAA complains to Parliamentary Commissioner after it emerges that Jeremy Corbyn’s trip to honour antisemitic Black September terrorists was not declared in parliamentary register per Campaign Against Antisemitism
Another piece at Antisemitism UK https://antisemitism.uk/caa-complains-to-parliamentary-commissioner-after-it-emerges-that-jeremy-corbyns-trip-to-honour-antisemitic-black-september-terrorists-was-not-declared-in-parliamentary-register/ that ratchets up the pressure on the Labour Party leader, and BBC darling, Jeremy Corbyn.
'Campaign Against Antisemitism has submitted a complaint to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards after receiving reports that Jeremy Corbyn's trip to Tunisia in 2014 was not declared in Parliament's Register of Interests.
Mr Corbyn said that the trip, during which he laid a wreath at the grave of antisemitic Black September terrorists and attended a conference at which a senior Hamas member outlined plans for "magnificent" violence, was at the invitation of a Tunisian politician.
Mr Corbyn has a long history of receiving donations from people with links to extremism, including some who appear to be aligned with Hamas.
In addition to our new complaint to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, we have also referred the Labour Party to the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
Stephen Silverman, Director of Investigations and Enforcement at Campaign Against Antisemitism, said: "The public needs to know who paid for Jeremy Corbyn's trip to honour the antisemitic Black September terrorists. He has a track record of receiving donations from people with close links to terrorist organisations and extremists, and if he received funds which he has not declared for this trip then that needs to be investigated. If he paid for such a trip himself, then that would be extremely disturbing, but if some other entity paid for the trip, the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards must tell the public who is pulling his strings."'
Not a word about this on the BBC who would lap up any accusations of Islamophobia from the likes of Tell Mama. The BBC are complicit in the rise of antisemitism in the UK and must be held to account.
The fact Jeremy Corbyn remains Labour Leader shows how rotten the Party has become, as he is caught in multiple lies over his honouring of antisemitic Black September terrorists per Campaign Against Antisemitism
Antisemitism UK have produced a piece https://antisemitism.uk/the-fact-jeremy-corbyn-remains-labour-leader-shows-how-rotten-the-party-has-become-as-he-is-caught-in-multiple-lies-over-his-honouring-of-antisemitic-black-september-terrorists/ that pulls no punches. It analyses Jeremy Corbyn's lies and comes to a conclusion.
Read the whole piece carefully and wonder why the BBC aren't giving this affair even 1% of the analysis that they've accorded Boris Johnson's remarks about wearing the burqua.
Here's a couple of extracts from this article, the first is about Jeremy Corbyn's second 'lie':
'Mr Corbyn's lie was compounded by a further lie. Having previously claimed that he was in Tunisia "to find peace", The Daily Mail revealed that he was in fact at a conference where a senior official from Hamas, the genocidal antisemitic terrorist organisation, outlined the group's strategy for violent attacks, which it called "magnificent".
The conference also heard from Othman Jerandi, a former Tunisian foreign minister, who appeared to support the conspiracy theory that ISIS is in fact an Israeli conspiracy, saying: "ISIS and Israel are the same thing".'
I've not seen anything at all about this piece of news on the BBC, which further shows how biased and complicit the BBC are.
The second summarises the accusations about Jeremy Corbyn in this regard:
'At this point the weight of the facts should speak loudly enough for themselves. His brazen lies about honouring the brutal antisemitic terrorists behind the Munich massacre show that he is not a decent man.'
The last extract is their conclusion that it seems hard not to come to:
'Jeremy Corbyn is a liar, a defender of terrorists, and an antisemite. Under his leadership the Labour party presents an existential threat to the British Jewish community, not least because he so clearly supports those who brutalise and murder Jews. The fact that he remains the Leader of the Opposition shows how rotten the Labour Party itself itself has become.'
Strong words that you won't see reported on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.
Monday, 13 August 2018
Jeremy Corbyn says he was "present but did not take part" in a wreath laying ceremony despite the existence of a photo showing him holding a wreath.
First question, at what point does one move from being merely "present" to "taking part"?
Second question, will the BBC ever cover this story with 1% of the forensic attention they've paid to Boris Johnson's burqua remarks? I think we know the answer to that.
The BBC have finally reported https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45170622 the wreath laying story but only by spinning it into an Israeli complaint. The BBC disgust me more every day but no more.
Jeremy Corbyn’s 2015 leadership campaign was partly financed by donations from pro-Hamas and pro-terrorism donors per Campaign Against Antisemitism
'Campaign Against Antisemitism has reviewed Electoral Commission documents, according to which Jeremy Corbyn's 2015 campaign to become leader of the Labour Party was partly funded by London GP Dr Ibrahim Hamami, who is alleged to be aligned with Hamas, the genocidal antisemitic terrorist organisation, and retired Professor Ted Honderich, who stated in 2011 that Palestinians had a "moral right" to engage in terrorism.
Dr Hamami gave £2,000, whilst Prof. Honderich gave £5,000. Mr Corbyn had three main individual donors to his leadership campaign, of which Dr Hamami and Prof. Honderich were two.
According to an investigation by The Telegraph in 2015, Dr Hamami is founder and director of the pro-Hamas Palestinian Affairs Centre and has been a columnist for the official Hamas newspaper, The Filastin. According to the Daily Mail, he praised violence against Jews in the West Bank on his Facebook page, describing the attacks as acts of "dignity, freedom and honour".
Professor Honderich wrote in The Guardian in 2011 that "Palestinians have a moral right to their terrorism within historic Palestine against neo-Zionism".
Mr Corbyn reported the donation from Dr Hamami as being from a "Dr Ibrahim Hamam", but Dr Hamami confirmed to The Telegraph that he was the donor. The donation was given in strange circumstances. Dr Hamami's donation was reportedly part of a £10,000 donation raised at a fundraising dinner by Friends of Al Aqsa, whose founder told a cheering crowd in 2009 during a war between Israel and Hamas: "Hamas is not a terrorist organisation. The reason that they hate Hamas is because they refuse to be subjugated to be occupied by the Israeli state and we salute Hamas for standing up to Israel." £8,000 of the £10,000 raised at the dinner was not declared because Mr Corbyn claimed that the donations had been made out to the wrong person.
According to Electoral Commission returns, previous donations to Mr Corbyn included a donation of £2,821 from Interpal, a British charity which was listed as a terrorist organisation by the United States due to its alleged ties to Hamas, and a donation of £1,300 from the Palestinian Return Centre, which has in past faced accusations of being "Hamas's organisational branch in Europe".'
Quoted at length from Antisemitism UK
Oddly I can't see any interest from the BBC in the antisemites and pro-terrorism individuals who donated money to to Jeremy Corbyn's leadership campaign.
The BBC have crossed a line with their ignoring of the latest revelations about Jeremy Corbyn and they will not get away with it. As a start all Jews should refuse to pay their TV license in protest at the BBC's support for antisemites like Jeremy Corbyn.
If Jeremy Corbyn really did lay a wreath for the Black September terrorists who took the Israeli athletes captive at the Munich Olympics of 1972 then he is scum if he knew of what they did:
'Mr. Romano, a champion weight lifter, was shot when he tried to overpower the terrorists early in the attack. He was then left to die in front of the other hostages and castrated. Other hostages were beaten and sustained serious injuries, including broken bones, '
Nice heroes you have Corbyn.
More here at the New York Timeshttps://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/02/sports/long-hidden-details-reveal-cruelty-of-1972-munich-attackers.html but not on the BBC who are desperately trying to protect Jeremy Corbyn by hiding the reality of what kind of a person he is.
Jeremy Corbyn 'not fit to be an MP' after 'despicable' Black September wreath laying, JLC chief says per The Jewish Chronicle
The allegations keep coming...
'Jeremy Corbyn has been branded "not fit to be a member of parliament, let alone a national leader" for his "despicable" laying of a wreath at a memorial to terrorists who carried out the Munich Massacre.
The Daily Mail revealed on Saturday that Mr Corbyn laid a wreath at thr graves of members of terror group the Black September, which infamously murdered a group of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games.
It triggered more outrage after a string of revelations about things Mr Corbyn said or did before he became party leader in 2015.
Jewish Leadership Council chair Jonathan Goldstein called Mr Corbyn's action "despicable".
Speaking on Sunday, he said: "It is reprehensible that the man who wishes to be our Prime Minister honoured ruthless terrorists who committed an act described by the late King Hussein of Jordan as 'a savage crime against humanity'.
"This man is not fit to be a member of parliament, let alone a national leader. He has spent his entire political career cavorting with conspiracy theorists, terrorists and revolutionaries who seek to undo all the good for which our ancestors have given their lives.
"In so many ways, 'Enough is Enough'."'
More here at the JChttps://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/jeremy-corbyn-not-fit-to-be-an-mp-despicable-black-september-wreath but not on the BBC who have given up trying to be impartial when reporting the news, instead acting as the Labour Party's propaganda arm.
I came to a decision this weekend and I'll be posting that decision before the end of the week, along with my reasoning.
National Union of Journalists investigates after board member tweets Jewish politicians don't have 'human blood' per The Jewish Chronicle
'The National Union of Journalists has confirmed it is investigating a member of its governing body, after she tweeted that a number of prominent Jewish politicians don't have "human blood".
Arjum Wajid, who describes herself on Twitter as believing "in equality of all human beings," tweeted about Ruth Smeeth and Louise Ellman, two Jewish Labour MPs, and Adam Langleben, a Jewish former Labour Barnet councillor.
In response to a tweet from Tony Greenstein, an anti-Zionist who was expelled from the Labour party last year, Ms Wajid tweeted "Do you really believe the likes of Adam Langeleben, Ruth Smeeth and Louise Ellman have a conscience?
"Don't know what runs through their veins, not human blood. Their hearts and brains totally devoid of humanity and eyes blind to truth. No creatures in Abraham's universe."
The tweet was later deleted.'
More at the JC but obviously not on the BBC who are desperately trying to keep the antisemitic spotlight off of Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party and the left in general.
Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable can't give a reason why Boris Johnson should apologise, Julia Hartley-Brewer kept asking for a reason but Vince Cable couldn't seem to think of one.
Jeremy Corbyn has changed his story over the wreath laying ceremony.
'Jeremy Corbyn has admitted he was present at a wreath-laying memorial for Palestinian activists thought to have been behind the murder of Israeli Olympic athletes in 1972.
The Labour leader revealed he was there but did not "think" he was involved in the wreath laying.
Speaking for the first time since photos emerged of him at the cemetery in Tunisia, Mr Corbyn said on Monday: "I was present when it was laid, I don't think I was actually involved in it.'
You can read more at Sky News https://news.sky.com/story/jeremy-corbyn-thinks-he-did-not-lay-wreath-to-palestinian-activists but still not a word of coverage of this story on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.

Kay Burley hang your head in shame for comparing wearing a burka to being disfigured in the service of your country
Kay Burley should hang her head in shame for comparing wearing a burka to being disfigured in the service of your country but somehow I doubt that she will.
I am disgusted.
One line from James Delingpole article https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/08/12/boris-vs-the-burqa-the-brexit-battle-begins/ struck me:
"the European Union is really just communism without the secret police, bread queues and gulags"
I think James Delingpole has forgotten to add the key word - YET.
Reading this Sunday Times article https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/treasury-shifts-cash-into-euros-ahead-of-brexit something struck me... If the Bank of England are buying Euros then aren't they so depressing the value of Sterling? If so, in whose interests is that? The remoaners and the establishment who really don't want Brexit to happen? Does Mark Carney fall into that category, both or neither? How about Theresa May?
Matthew Parris's recent articles have left me with a sinking heart as I have to read through more re-moaning rubbish, well-written but still moany rubbish. However Saturday's piece entitled 'The right to ridicule is essential to free speech' should be read by every BBC journalist who joyously jumps on the anti Johnson bandwagon as part of their opposition to Brexit and their determination to see a Labour Party victory at the next General Election.
The article begins thus:
'Boris Johnson is a flawed politician but we must defend to the hilt his use of invective and insult, wherever directed...'
Indeed we should, else free-speech suffer as '"hate-speech" become the successor to Orwell's "thought-crime"'.
Do read the whole article and understand that freedom of speech is important and must be protected.

Another day, another Jeremy Corbyn antisemitism claim.
This time this:
''It beggars belief that anyone would wish to honour the terrorists behind the brutal massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at Munich,' said Jennifer Gerber, director of Labour Friends of Israel.
'However, it is sadly utterly unsurprising that Jeremy Corbyn appears to have done so. Others will rightly regard it is as totally sickening.''
The whole story is here in The Mail
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6048807/Photos-Labour-leader-Corbyn-tribute-event-Palestine-martyrs-linked-Munich-massacre.html but in summary:
'Last night sources close to Mr Corbyn insisted he was at the service in 2014 to commemorate 47 Palestinians killed in an Israeli air strike on a Tunisian PLO base in 1985.
But on a visit to the cemetery this week, the Daily Mail discovered that the monument to the air strike victims is 15 yards from where Mr Corbyn is pictured – and in a different part of the complex.
Instead he was in front of a plaque that lies beside the graves of Black September members.
The plaque honours three dead men: Salah Khalaf, who founded Black September; his key aide Fakhri al-Omari; and Hayel Abdel-Hamid, PLO chief of security.
Adjacent to their graves is that of Bseiso.
Black September, the terror group which massacred 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics.
One picture places Mr Corbyn close to the grave of another terrorist, Atef Bseiso, intelligence chief of the Palestine Liberation Organisation.
Bseiso has also been linked to the Munich atrocity. Another image shows the Labour leader apparently joining in an Islamic prayer while by the graves.'
So once again there are options:
1. was Jeremy Corbyn mistakenly standing by the wrong graves having been mislead by his hosts
2. did Jeremy Corbyn know what he was doing at the time and is lying to cover up his true beliefs
If 1. above then he's either really unlucky (again) or really really stupid.
If 2. above then he's as nasty a piece of work as many believe.
Either way don't expect the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC, to report the story or raise the questions. The BBC would far rather attack Boris Johnson ostensibly for his remarks on burquas but really to destroy a leading Brexiteer than ask serious questions about the suitability for power of an antisemitic Marxist.
That communist link is also something that Jeremy Corbyn gets a free pass on and features only at the end of The Mail article:
'Mr Corbyn recorded his visit to the Tunisian cemetery – a year before he became Labour leader – in an article for the communist newspaper, the Morning Star.'
Corbyn and McDonnell seem to be leading the Labour Party further and further to the left, whilst the BBC all but ignore the issue and the type of regime that a Labour Party election victory would usher in.

Will Have I Got News For You have a go at Boris Johnson's Burqua comments or do Ian Hislop and Paul Merton understand the concept of shame
'You don't hear the outraged of Twitter going on about the BBC and the Guardian mocking the burka. Stephen Fry made the same joke as Boris on Have I Got News For You, before Ian Hislop and Paul Merton joined in:
Stephen Fry: "I just posted something in that."
Ian Hislop: "We must stop meeting like this, Camilla."
Paul Merton: "Prince Charles is surprised when a pint of Guinness looks at him in a funny way."'
More here at Guido Fawkes https://order-order.com/2018/08/10/bbc-guardian-also-mocked-burka/ but I doubt that historical comments of their own will prevent our moral guardians (sic) Hislop and Merton from ripping as much piss as possible from Boris Johnson.
The headline of this BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-45147682 quite shocked me, I wonder how long 'Muslim convert' will stay in the headline.
'A man has pleaded guilty to plotting a terror attack on London's Oxford Street and raising money for terrorism.
Lewis Ludlow, 26, planned to hire a van and hit pedestrians and also targeted Madame Tussauds and St Paul's Cathedral, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.
He pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey and is due to be sentenced on 2 November.
Ludlow, who also used the name Ali Hussain, had hoped to kill up to 100 people.'
How many more people are there who plan to kill as many people as they can?

'A 37-year-old man was the victim of a brutal attack Friday night in a Paris suburb when several people robbed him of his phone and ripped out four of his gold teeth.
The man, who was walking alone in the suburb of Aubervilliers, in the heavily migrant populated Seine-Saint-Denis area north of the French capital, when he was set upon by "several individuals" who targetted him after seeing his mobile phone, BFMTV reports.
According to investigators, while robbing the man, the thieves noted he had several gold teeth and proceeded to rip them from his mouth. Police said that the thieves did not use any sort of dental equipment during the attack.
"All that to get €50 [£44/$58]," a police source said. Following the brutal attack, the victim was transferred to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.'
I crossed Paris off my list of City Break locations a couple of years ago, it won't be getting back on that list anytime soon.

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45120580 comes under the category of read to the end...
Here's the beginning:
'A man arrested after 11 malnourished children were found in a remote desert compound was training them to commit school shootings, US media report.
According to prosecutors' documents, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was teaching some of the children, who are aged one to 15, how to use weapons.'
But here's the end:
'According to New York media, Mr Wahhaj's father, Imam Siriaj Wahhaj, is a prominent Muslim leader in Brooklyn, who has been called "one of the most admired Muslim leaders" in the US.
He reportedly testified as a character witness at the trial for Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was later convicted of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
In 1991, he became the first Muslim to lead an opening prayer before the US House of Representatives.'
No further comment necessary.
'Israel's Foreign Ministry on Thursday morning accused the BBC of deliberately lying about the recent violence in Gaza and southern Israel, demanding it change a headline that said Israel killed a pregnant woman and her child in Gaza, but omitting the Palestinian rocket fire at Israeli civilians that preceded Israel's retaliatory airstrikes.
Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon said he asked Israel's embassy in London to file a written complaint against the broadcaster.
Replying to a tweet linking to a BBC article entitled, "Israeli air strikes 'kill pregnant woman and baby,'" Nahshon replied by saying that this headline was "deliberately misleading!!! Israel reacted following the launching of over 100 rockets at Southern Israel, targeting and injuring civilians. Change it immediately!!!"'
More here at The Times Of Israel https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-to-lodge-formal-complaint-over-bbc-coverage-of-gaza-violence/ but obviously no coverage on the institutionally anti Israel BBC. Lots more vilifying of Israel all over the BBC.
Gaza air strikes ‘kill woman and child’ after rockets hit Israel per the institutionally anti Israel BBC
Now that Israel have retaliated against Hamas's provocation, the BBC can do a report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-45124357 on what's happening in Gaza.
Do read the whole report, but what struck me was the last few paragraphs, which I reprint below with my comments:
'The last four months have seen an upsurge in violence along the Gaza-Israel border.'
Caused by? Why did the BBC barely report the all but daily attacks on Israel until Israel retailiated?
'More than 160 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces - most during weekly protests at which thousands of Palestinians have expressed their support for the declared right of Palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral homes in what is now Israel.'
So unless Israel lose an equivalent number of people there's a problem? How many Palestinians would have been killed had they not been trying to infiltrate Israel with murderous intent? Whose "declared right to return to their ancestral homes"? What other people have such "declared right" or does such a right exist against the world's only Jewish majority state? Did such a right exist from 1948 to 1967 or only after 1967?
'Human rights groups have accused Israeli troops of using excessive force at the protests, but the military said they only opened fire in self-defence or on people trying to infiltrate its territory.'
Which "human rights groups"? Are these institutionally anti Israel? Anti Semitic?
'One Israeli soldier has been shot dead by a Palestinian sniper during the same period, while incendiary devices attached to balloons and kites launched by Palestinians have sparked hundreds of fires in southern Israel, burning some 3,000 hectares (7,400 acres) of forest and farmland.'
Could you point me to the BBC's reporting of these fire attacks on Israel over the last few months. Could you please point me to the condemnations of such attacks from human rights groups over the same period.
In addition, how much more anti Israel is the BBC now than it was found to have been by the, securely hidden away, Balen Report?

'Campaign Against Antisemitism has exposed a Labour councillor, Ifran Mohammed, who shared a Facebook post claiming that Jews were warned to stay home on 9/11.
Mr Mohammed is a councillor for the Ferndale Ward in Lambeth. According to Lambeth Council's website, Mr Mohammed sits on the Equality Impact Assessment Panel and is a member of Faiths Together in Lambeth.
In stark contrast with his supposed commitment to equality and interfaith togetherness, on 5th December 2015 he posted a video on Facebook claiming that Jews "received a text message before the incident 'Do not come to work in [sic] September 11'" and that there are "Israeli ties to the September 11 attacks".'
More here https://antisemitism.uk/caa-exposes-labour-councillor-irfan-mohammed-who-shared-facebook-post-claiming-jews-were-warned-to-stay-home-on-9-11/ but definitely not on the Labour Party's propaganda arm and borderline antisemitic organisation, the BBC.
'If you tell me that the burqa is oppressive, then I am with you. If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree
So I was a bit surprised to see that on August 1 the Danes joined several other European countries – France, Germany, Austria, Belgium – in imposing a ban on the niqab and the burka – those items of Muslim head-gear that obscure the female face. Already a fine of 1000 kroner – about £120 – has been imposed on a 28-year-old woman seen wearing a niqab in a shopping centre in the north eastern town of Horsholm. A scuffle broke out as someone tried to rip it off her head. There have been demonstrations, on both sides of the argument. What has happened, you may ask, to the Danish spirit of live and let live?
If you tell me that the burka is oppressive, then I am with you. If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree – and I would add that I can find no scriptural authority for the practice in the Koran. I would go further and say that it is absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes; and I thoroughly dislike any attempt by any – invariably male – government to encourage such demonstrations of "modesty", notably the extraordinary exhortations of President Ramzan Kadyrov of Chechnya, who has told the men of his country to splat their women with paintballs if they fail to cover their heads.
I am against a total ban because it is inevitably construed – rightly or wrongly – as being intended to make some point about Islam
If a constituent came to my MP's surgery with her face obscured, I should feel fully entitled – like Jack Straw – to ask her to remove it so that I could talk to her properly. If a female student turned up at school or at a university lecture looking like a bank robber then ditto: those in authority should be allowed to converse openly with those that they are being asked to instruct. As for individual businesses or branches of government – they should of course be able to enforce a dress code that enables their employees to interact with customers; and that means human beings must be able to see each other's faces and read their expressions. It's how we work.
All that seems to me to be sensible. But such restrictions are not quite the same as telling a free-born adult woman what she may or may not wear, in a public place, when she is simply minding her own business.'
That's the full text to give context, from herehttps://blog.sami-aldeeb.com/2018/08/06/denmark-has-got-it-wrong-yes-the-burka-is-oppressive-and-ridiculous-but-thats-still-no-reason-to-ban-it-boris-johnson/ but obviously not what the BBC want to let its viewers, listeners or readers know. There's a pogrom against Boris Johnson in full flow and stopping it may prove too much even for Boris.
The BBC's attacks on Boris Johnson continue and this report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45114368 contains this:
'Supporters of Mr Johnson say the row is politically-motivated and that other senior Tories have made similar remarks without such criticism.'
No mention of senior Labour MPs who've made similar comments but why would the BBC's propaganda arm mention anything that might reflect badly on the Labour Party? Thankfully Guido Fawkes has plenty of Labour Party examples on his site today https://order-order.com
The Labour Party antisemitism story continues to run, here's a new twist:
'The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance has warned Labour is "undermining" the fight against anti-Semitism as it emerged Jeremy Corbyn claimed the BBC was biased for saying Israel has a right to exist.
In its first intervention on the anti-Semitism row gripping the Labour party the IHRA said adding or removing sections of the widely accepted definition risks damaging the fight against racism because it creates division. '
More here https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/08/07/labour-undermining-fight-against-anti-semitism-corbyn-suggests/ but obviously not on the Labour Party's propaganda arm and ally in vilifying Israel and so increasing antisemitism, the BBC.
The Guardian report https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/aug/07/leaked-labour-papers-reveal-scale-of-challenge-to-tackle-antisemitism this:
'Leaked Labour papers reveal scale of challenge to tackle antisemitism
National executive committee only considered a minority of cases before disputes panel because of time constraints
Leaked Labour disciplinary papers have laid bare the scale of the challenge the party's governing body faces in tackling antisemitism.
The paperwork, seen by the Guardian, was sent to national executive committee (NEC) members on 3 July, ahead of a meeting of the governing body's disputes panel, which can refer members for expulsion.
The papers for the disputes panel, which all members of the ruling body can attend, lay out the party's case against suspended members, compiled by party officers who then recommend sanctions to take.
Around 70 cases are believed to be pending. However, the papers reveal only a minority were considered by the NEC because of time constraints. '
The BBC haven't seen fit to report such news. Being that they are more interested in getting a Labour government elected than the inconvenient persecution of British Jews.
Later in the Guardian report was this:
' Corbyn, who left the group in 2015, denied having seen any antisemitic content directly, saying he would have challenged it had he seen it.'
Is Jeremy Corbyn a liar, blind or stupid?
Two items on the BBC's main news page https://www.bbc.co.uk/news show that the BBC is in full destroy Brexit mode. There's the lead story designed to destroy Boris Johnson: ostensibly for insulting Muslims, something that the BBC do care hugely about, less about Jews obviously, but also for daring to be a supporter of Brexit.
Just a little bit further down the news is this piece https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-politics-45083840 triumphantly reporting on the possible recall election of Ian Paisley, his crime ostensible was not reporting some expenses but in reality he's guilty of being pro Brexit and being a DUP MP and so propping up a Conservative government.
The BBC want to destroy Boris Johnson, he has popularity outside of the Conservative Party, supports Brexit and has the recognition that leaders need. So any excuse to attack Boris Johnson.
The wonderful Craig at http://isthebbcbiased.blogspot.com/2018/08/compare-and-contrast.html has some analysis that shows the BBC bias, here's part of it:
'Structure of reports (by paragraphs)

I've now read several times the transcript from Jeremy Corbyn's interview with the Iranian state television channel Press TV in which he says the BBC is biased on Israel's right to exist:
"There seems to be a great deal pressure on the BBC... I think there is a bias towards saying that Israel is a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, that Israel has its security concerns."
I can see no other meaning other than that the BBC is biased in saying that Israel has a right to exist.
Does Jeremy Corbyn believe that Israel has no right to exist, rather like the Iranian regime do?
Does he agree with his 'friends' in Hamas and Hezbollah on the right of Israel to exist?
Is there any footage of Jeremy Corbyn chanting "From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be free"? How would Jeremy Corbyn wriggle out of that?
Transcript here https://order-order.com/2018/08/07/corbyn-bbc-biased-on-israels-right-to-exist/ along with the video, if you've got a strong enough stomach.
'Footage has emerged of Corbyn giving an interview to the Iranian state television channel Press TV in which he says the BBC is biased on Israel's right to exist.
"There seems to be a great deal pressure on the BBC from the Israeli government and the Israeli embassy and they are very assertive towards all journalists and to the BBC itself… I think there is a bias towards saying that Israel is a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, that Israel has its security concerns."'

If Jeremy Corbyn thinks that the BBC is in any way pro Israel then presumably he's on record calling for the BBC to make the Balen Report made public rather than kept hidden by the BBC. Did he ever make that call? Will he now?
Of course not, the BBC is institutionally anti Israel and we all know it.

Corbyn's office 'ignored advice' not to publish antisemitism article on Friday, claim Board and JLC per The Jewish Chronicle
'The Board and JLC suggest the Labour leader 'deliberately' picked time 'mainstream Jewish organisations were closed for our holy day' to release message
Jeremy Corbyn's office ignored advice from the two leading Jewish communal organisations not to release his article on antisemitism last Friday afternoon, it has been claimed.
In an article written jointly by Jewish Leadership Council chair Jonathan Goldstein and Board of Deputies president Marie van der Zyl on Sunday it was claimed the Labour leader's office "asked us whether it would be insensitive to release a statement on Friday afternoon, before the Jewish Sabbath. We said it would be an act of tremendous bad faith. He clearly ignored us."
The article for the New Statesman added:"He deliberately picked a time that he knew all the mainstream Jewish organisations were closed for our holy day.
"This tells you as much as you need to know about him and the contempt with which many of those around him regard the Jewish community."'
More here https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/corbyn-s-office-ignored-advice-not-to-publish-antisemitism-article-on-friday-claim-board-and-jlc-1.468015 but obviously not on the borderline antisemitic BBC.
The Labour Party are setting up a special day-long meeting so as to discuss the problem of anti-Semitism with Jews, both Labour Party members and others. They request that anyone who wants to attend should send their request to Jeremy Corbyn. The date set for the meeting is Wednesday 19th September... <\sarcasm>
Is John McDonnell an antisemite? I don't know whether he is or he isn't. However he happily appears at at least one march where banners of Stalin are waived, see photos here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4463006/John-McDonnell-speaks-Day-demo-London.html I see no evidence that John Mcdonell was disgusted or offended by banners being waved approvingly of a man whose left-wing ideology was responsible for the murder of many tens of millions of people. Indeed when Stalin wasn't starving people to death through his command economic policies, he deliberately starved to death millions of people as a sort of punishment. Ukrainians had to eat their own dead children to survive.
Is John McDonnell planning on instituting a Stalinist style 'command economy' in the UK? We certainly won't find out from the BBC because the BBC are cheerleaders for the Labour Party not impartial news reporters.
Labour antisemitism row: Yes again but that's what happens when a British political party is lead by an apparent antisemite
'Mr Corbyn has indicated that he is now ready to include in his party's code three of the four examples of antisemitism given by the alliance. He will continue to insist, however, that it is not necessarily antisemitic to say that the existence of the state of Israel is a "racist endeavour".'
That's from The Times
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/new-jeremy-corbyn-apology-fails-to-convince-britishjews-tdbvsbq37 and does raise the obvious questions:
1. Do you, Jeremy Corbyn, consider that the existence of the state of Israel is a "racist endeavour"?
2. Are the existence of any other countries a "racist endeavour"?
3. How about these two examples:
a) The Islamic state of Pakistan?
b) Saudi Arabia where no non Muslims are allowed to practice their religions?
An unbiased news reporting organisation would raise these questions with Jeremy Corbyn, so I doubt that they will be raised by the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.
Imagine the BBC's outcry if it was the world's only Jewish majority state mistreating women, rather than the Islamic Saudi Arabia
Towards the end of this BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-45079682 comes some context to the report:
'Saudi women's rights activists, including those who have been imprisoned for defying the ban, had celebrated the decision.
But they also vowed to continue campaigning for the end of other laws they consider discriminatory.
Women must adhere to a strict dress code, be separated from unrelated men, and be accompanied by or receive written permission from a male guardian - usually a father, husband or brother - if they want to travel, work or access healthcare.'
I doubt that the BBC would be so lacking in emotion if it was Israeli campaigners opposing 'laws they consider discriminatory'.
If Israel was accused of, or rather actually guilty of such discrimination as:
'Women must adhere to a strict dress code, be separated from unrelated men, and be accompanied by or receive written permission from a male guardian - usually a father, husband or brother - if they want to travel, work or access healthcare.' then the BBC would be campaigning against these restrictions daily and would be calling for action but as it's not a democracy such as Israel but the theocracy of Saudi Arabia, the BBC keep quiet.

Jeremy Corbyn apologises for hurt caused to Jewish people by anti-Semitism per BBC News, but Jews don't believe him per Jewish groups
This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45077647 does report the accusations made about Jeremy Corbyn but without the vitriol that the BBC would use were it a Conservative politician accused of racism.
This bit caught my eye:
'The timing of the article was condemned by the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews Marie Van Der Zyl and chair of the Jewish Leadership Council Jonathan Goldstein.
Writing for the New Statesman on Sunday, they said: "Jeremy Corbyn's office asked us whether it would be insensitive to release a statement on Friday afternoon, before the Jewish Sabbath. We said it would be an act of tremendous bad faith. He clearly ignored us.
"He deliberately picked a time that he knew all the mainstream Jewish organisations were closed for our holy day.
"This tells you as much as you need to know about him and the contempt with which many of those around him regard the Jewish community."'
To be fair, I feel nothing but contempt for Jeremy Corbyn, but then I've felt that way for years. Any person who calls Hamas and Hezbollah' friends ', appears on platforms with antisemites, chairs a meeting on Holocaust Memorial Day that seemingly was designed to upset Jews, goes to an anti Seder night and so on...
The man's an antisemite but he's by no means on his own kn that regard in the modern Labour Party.
As an aside has anyone asked Shami Chakrabarti if she'd like to reconsider her report into antisemitism in the Labour Party or did the antisemitism in the Labour Party only start after her report was published?
Karl Popper’s Paradox of Intolerance states: “if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant.”
Karl Popper's Paradox of Intolerance states: "if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant."
So he came to the conclusion that: "in order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance."
The BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-45077057 on the latest from the Socialist paradise of Venezuela:
'Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro says the perpetrators of what he says was an assassination attempt against him will face "maximum punishment".
He was speaking at a military event in Caracas when the alleged attack, involving explosive drones, occurred.
He has blamed Colombia for the incident but provided no evidence. Colombia said the accusation was "baseless".
The government has also pointed the finger at the opposition, prompting fears of a new crackdown.
Many opposition leaders have already left the country citing government harassment and there are reported to be more than 200 political prisoners in the country's jails.'
Be under no illusions that if a Labour government lead by the likes of Jeremy ' friends of Hamas and Hezbollah' Corbyn and John 'kneecaping' Mcdonnell came into being in the UK then opposition leaders will be in a little better position.
This Guardian piece https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/aug/04/fiona-miller-labour-membership-corbyn-brexit by Fiona Millar (note that The Guardian link spells Millar as Miller, nothing changes at The Grauniad) doesn't impress me with Ms Millar's fine words and delicate sensibilities, here's an extract:
'The shockingly badly handled antisemitism row has exposed yet again the nasty, cultish, sectarian, "with us or against us" streak in Corbyn's Labour that sits ill with the party's longstanding, comradely tolerance of difference, which included Corbyn's numerous Commons rebellions.
A short tweet on the subject of my membership dilemma early this week elicited the usual "piss off then" response from supporters of the current leadership. Labour MP Ben Bradshaw shot back: "Don't leave – that is what they want." But what have we come to, supporting a party that actively wants members to leave and appears happy to deter potential voters? Elections are usually won by winning over people who previously didn't agree with you, not by displacing those who did.
The turmoil of the past few weeks – much of which could easily have been avoided by a swift admission (or at least in Friday's Guardian article) that it was a mistake not to adopt the internationally recognised definition of antisemitism – has also exposed something many of us fear. That Corbyn is completely unsuited to being prime minister.
It is not just the people he surrounds himself with, several of whom were not even in the party when he became leader. It's that he appears to be unable to hear opposing arguments or seek compromise, and is so sanctimoniously sure of himself that he is prepared to countenance possible terminal damage to the party's fortunes. Why should his leadership of the country be any different?'
A leader she describes as 'nasty, cultish, sectarian', a party that's been partly taken over by entryists, a leader who she says 'appears to be unable to hear opposing arguments or seek compromise, and is so sanctimoniously sure of himself', a party that is so obsessed by anti-Israel that it can't recognise facts but bearing all that in mind Fiona Millar can't quite bring herself to leave the Labour Party, what does that say about her?
Three examples but not four?
'The Labour leader is also apparently ready to include among allegations that could be viewed as anti-Semitic comparisons between Israeli policy and Nazi Germany – despite suggestions from some campaigners that his own hosting of an event on Holocaust Memorial Day in 2010 could contravene it.'
As for the fourth that would be a step too far for a 'man' who's called the antisemitic genocidal Hamas and Hezbollah 'friends'.
More herehttps://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/corbyn-ready-to-include-three-missing-examples-of-anti-semitism-in-code/ but obviously not on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC where protecting Jeremy Corbyn from criticism is worth the pain caused to Jews.
'Editor of the Jewish Chronicle, Stephen Pollard vented his anger on Twitter, and called the piece "awful".
So keen is Corbyn to engage with Jews that he publishes this (awful) piece on a Friday night, for a Saturday paper. So not a single observant Jew can engage with it. (And he did the same thing with the Chakrabarti report, announcing it Friday night.) https://t.co/RMaAgLDTtg
— Stephen Pollard (@stephenpollard) August 3, 2018
Maajid Nawaz echoed some of the criticisms of Jeremy Corbyn on his LBC show.
He said: "How on earth did it not occur to Jeremy Corbyn, not occur to any of his inner circle advising him, that publishing a rebuttal to the allegations an hour before the beginning of the Sabbath, can only be perceived as anything but wilful ignorance?
"Those who don't want to give him the benefit of the doubt would believe this to be a form of deliberate belligerence.
"A form of attempt to deny observant Jews a response."'
One could fill a blog just with the antisemitic allegations that keep being made about Jeremy Corbyn. However the BBC continue to give the Labour Party leader the benefit of the doubt, not that I can see much doubt. Being little more than the propaganda arm of the BBC leaves the BBC with little choice.
I wonder if the Balen Report would have shown the BBC to be so biased against Israel as to fall foul of the IHRA antisemitism definition?

I wonder how many BBC 'journalists' would also fall foul of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism?

If this Breitbart article
https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/08/04/british-police-officer-asked-culturally-acceptable-iraqi-date-12-year-old/ is accurate then words all but fail me, British police have lost it:
'A British police officer called a charity to ask if it were acceptable for an Iraqi man to date a 12-year-old girl because he wanted to be "culturally sensitive" when dealing with a suspected paedophile.
An unnamed police detective called the charity Karma Nirvana, which tackles forced marriage and other forms of 'honour-based' abuse, after he had arrested a 26-year-old Iraqi man who said that in his culture, it was acceptable for him to be in a relationship with a child, according to the charity's call logs seen by The Times.
According to the call log, the policeman said "the accused is stating that it is 'completely acceptable in my culture to be with a 12-year-old'."
The record added that the officer "'just wished to know if it is accepted in Iraqi culture to be with a 12-year-old girl' as he wished to be 'culturally sensitive'".
The charity advised that he deal with the Iraqi in the same way they would deal with any other suspected child sex predator.'
BBC Radio 4's Today programme and 5 Live Breakfast lost listeners this spring, industry figures show.
'Today's audience dropped by 839,000 year-on-year, while 5 Live Breakfast was down 337,000, according to Rajar, which monitors UK radio listening.
The BBC said a quieter news agenda in the second quarter of this year was partly to blame.'
Well maybe, but more likely more and more Radio 4 listeners are fed up with the endless diet of Trump hatred, LBGTQ+ obsession, anti Brexit bias etc etc etc.
I was an every morning listener to the Today programme and had Radio 4 on whenever I could during the day. However about five years ago I got fed up with the bias and moved away from Radio 4. Maybe others are catching up with me!
'Analysis by the respected international think tank the Alliance for Securing Democracy has found that Jeremy Corbyn is being backed by an army of Russian linked Twitter accounts. The alliance, whose esteemed bipartisan advisory council includes former world leaders and cabinet secretaries from the Obama and Bush administrations, tracks Russian influence operations on twitter.

'How the Beeb fudged key facts and figures
What the BBC video said: The average Briton is only 36 per cent Anglo-Saxon.
What Migration Watch said: The average British person's DNA is at least 90 per cent European. The impact of modern inflows of hundreds of thousands a year is entirely different from the fusing of a comparatively small number from Northern European tribes in the centuries preceding Norman times.
BBC: Britain was 'multicultural long before curry and carnival'.
Migration Watch: Britain has never been a nation of immigrants. In 1951 less than 4 per cent of the population of England and Wales were foreign-born.
BBC: When Britain joined the EU, 'then we could move to Paris, Rome, Berlin and Barcelona and people from there could come here'.
Migration Watch: It is surely misleading to refer to four Western European cities and none in Eastern Europe, as it is from Eastern Europe that inflows have been so large, with over a million Poles now in the UK.
BBC: European migrants contribute 34 per cent more in tax than they receive in benefits.
Migration Watch: According to the same University College London research from which this figure was taken, immigrants of all nationalities did not benefit the taxpayer but cost £140billion between 1995 and 2011. '

Imagine the screams from the BBC and the Labour Party if a member of the BNP supported a leading UKIP or Conservative politician, there would be headlines for weeks and concerted efforts to destroy the UKIP or Conservative politician.
'A white supremacist and former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan praised the election of Jeremy Corbyn to the Labour leadership as a sign that people were recognising "Zionist power" and "Jewish establishment power".
David Duke, who led a branch of the KKK based in Louisiana in the 1970s, told listeners to his radio show in 2015: "It's a really good kind of evolutionary thing, isn't it, when people are beginning to recognise Zionist power and ultimately the Jewish establishment power in Britain and in the western world."'

'A British lawmaker suspended for sharing a post on Facebook that said it is a Jewish ritual to drink blood admitted to publishing the article after initially denying it.'
He was a local councillor so 'lawmaker' might be over egging the pudding, but yet another example

' Jeremy Corbyn
🔹He has never spoken out against Pakistan for their part in the slaughter of 25,000 Palestinians in September 1970...!!!

🔹He has never spoken out against the atrocities committed on Palestinians by Saddam Hussein and the theft of their money and property...!!!
🔹He has never spoken out against the atrocities committed by Iraqi and Iranian militias 2004 - 2007 when as many as 10000 Palestinians were killed and three times that number ethnically cleansed to refugee camps in Jordan...!!!
🔹He has never spoken out against those Arab countries forcing Palestinians into refugee camps when promising them freedom and citizenship...!!!

Why would you think this political lightweight was pro Palestinian
(From Peter Baum)'
Those seem fair points but if Jeremy Corbyn isn't simply pro-Palestinian then what motivates his verbal attacks on Israel?
Thursday, 2 August 2018
Don't believe the line that if Jeremy Corbyn is pushed out of the Labour Party leadership then John Mcdonnell is more moderate on Israel and antisemitism.
'Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell signed a Westminster early day motion to "welcome the launch" of an extreme anti-Zionist group whose founding charter called for destruction of the state of Israel – and alleged collaboration between Zionism and Nazi Germany.
The JC can reveal that Mr McDonnell signed EDM 2332 in October 2008 to "welcome the launch of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network and its founding Charter" and praised the organisation for speaking out to "discredit Israel's attempts to suppress criticism with false accusations of antisemitism".'
That's from the JC https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/john-mcdonnell-early-day-motion-1
The bit that really struck me was this piece of crap:
'A Labour Party spokesperson said: "John was welcoming the creation of an organisation that represented an important strand of radical Jewish political campaigning.
"Of course he didn't and doesn't endorse all of the language and views expressed in their charter."'
Very funny, in a really sick way.
So we have a Labour Party currently led by someone who more than several Labour Party members openly describe as an antisemite. The likely next Labour Party leader would likely be John' kneecaping' Mcdonnell who also seems to have a problem with Israel.
The hard left of British politics has long had a serious problem with Jews, however now that Momentum have all but taken over the Labour Party the problem is serious enough for me to urge British Jews to get ready to leave the UK.
I simply can't keep up with the wealth of Jeremy Corbyn has usedyl antisemitic words or deeds allegations.
Here's the latest:
'In response to the JC's report of the event in January 2010, Rubin Katz wrote a letter, published the following week, in which he claimed: "Jeremy Corbyn walked down the aisle with a policeman pointing to those he wanted removed."'
Nothing says I'm not antisemitic than pointing out Jews to be thrown out of a Holocaust meeting in parliament on Holocaust Memorial Day.
