Far-left Labour members remove commitment to “recognise” and “oppose antisemitism” from Pittsburgh motion

The Red Roar report https://www.theredroar.com/2018/10/far-left-labour-members-remove-commitment-to-recognise-and-oppose-antisemitism-from-pittsburgh-motion/

'Far-left Labour members remove commitment to "recognise" and "oppose antisemitism" from Pittsburgh motion
Southend West CLP amended motion expressing solidarity with victims of Pittsburgh attack to remove commitment to "recognise" and "oppose antisemitism".
 
Far-left members of Southend West CLP amended a motion of condolence for victims of the Pittsburgh massacre to remove sentences which recognised antisemitism's existence and committed to opposing antisemitism.

The motion was proposed by moderate party members following the massacre of eleven people at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, USA. According to the FBI, the gunman said during the shooting "they're committing genocide to my people", and "I want to kill all the Jews."

The original motion noted the events and the antisemitic views of the shooter, offered condolences to the victims and solidarity to Jews around the world. It went on to recognise that "antisemitism exists in society and … all forms of antisemitism must be eradicated", and called Labour "to lead the way in opposing antisemitism and fighting racism in all levels of society."

These last two statements were contested by far-left party members, and a compromise motion was instead passed which removed both lines. They were replaced instead by a commitment from the CLP "to reach out to the local synagogue with our condolences."'

That parts of the Jeremy Corbyn lead Labour Party have to compromise on antisemitism doesn't surprise me but it should.

Nothing on the BBC about this, obviously. 

Police Currently Dealing with 20% of Rotherham Grooming Victims

'Less than 20 percent of the identified 1,523 known victims of historic grooming and rape in Rotherham have been engaged by police.

After a jury at Sheffield Crown Court found seven men, six Pakistani-heritage, one of Yemeni-heritage, guilting of the historic sexual abuse of five vulnerable underaged girls in the Yorkshire town, the National Crime Agency, likened to the U.S.'s FBI, also announced that Operation Stovewood has resulted in just 14 successful prosecutions.

"There are currently 22 separate investigations under the Stovewood umbrella, with 147 suspects identified and more than 290 complainants engaging with officers. 24 suspects have been charged and 12 have been arrested (or attended a police station voluntarily) and bailed or released under investigation," the NCA said.

There are also 275 other people also under investigation, with the majority of the some-400 individuals being investigated still living in Rotherham, reports The Metro.

Of the survivors of exploitation in the town, 296 — all female — are actively engaged with police officers, representing just 19 percent of the total identified, and not including any who are yet to come forward. The original figure identified by the Jay Report — 1,400 — was revised upward by more than one hundred last year, alone.'

Jeremy Corbyn "flossing"



Jeremy Corbyn showing even less sense of rhythm than Theresa May did the other week. I wonder if Have I Got News For You will show the video and ridicule Jeremy Corbyn as they did Theresa May? Somehow I think not.

The BBC protecting Jeremy Corbyn as usual

This BBC report hidden away on the BBC's Technology pages starts thus:
'Facebook has uncovered and removed dozens of pages, accounts and groups linked to Iran that the firm says coordinated "inauthentic behaviour", targeting people in the US and UK.

The affected posts focused on divisive topics such as race relations, opposition to President Donald Trump and immigration, it said.'
Not a mention of Jeremy Corbyn, yet elsewhere on the web we can read that:
'Facebook has deleted a number of Iranian accounts posing as Britons that spread pro Jeremy Corbyn posts.

The accounts formed part of a wider “cluster” of accounts posing as grassroots US or UK activists to post about politically divisive topics like racism, opposition to the government and immigration, the company said on Friday.
...
It is the second batch of Iranian linked accounts to be purged from the platform this year. In August, Facebook removed hundreds of pages falsely posing as news organisations. Facebook users in the US, UK, Latin America and the Middle East were targeted by Iran state operation which used a network of fake news sites and fake accounts to promote political narratives with Iranian interests.

The accounts shared anti-Saudi, anti-Israeli and pro-Palestinian themes as well as support for Pro Iran US policies like the US/Iran nuclear deal.'
So why are the BBC deliberately not mentioning the pro-Jeremy Corbyn and anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian themes? I think we know the reasons and the BBC disgust me.

Labour drops its complaint over Daily Mail exposé on Corbyn wreath at terrorist graves per Daily Mail Online

'Labour has dropped its complaint against the Daily Mail over its coverage of Jeremy Corbyn's visit to the cemetery where terror leaders linked to the Munich massacre are buried.

The party complained to the Press regulator in August about several papers' coverage of the 2014 event.

Last night it emerged it had told the Independent Press Standards Organisation that it did not wish to take the case against the Mail any further.'

Pittsburgh shooting: What we know so far per BBC News

The BBC's Pittsburgh shooter report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46003665 now finally includes the news, that was reported elsewhere yesterday, that the shooter was a declared opponent of President Donald Trump. I'm sure that that inconvenient fact being reported only coincidentally appears after the killing of Jews in America news moves off of the BBC's news front page.

Also I note that the BBC only manage to show a photograph of one of the dead Jews. Meanwhile the BBC's headline news report about the Leicester FC helicopter crash shows pictures of all of the victims.

Compare and contrast as examiners used to ask. 

Poll: Half of Canadian BDS Supporters Would Continue Boycotting Israel Even If It Agreed to All Their Demands

'Of the 19 percent who expressed support for BDS, 45 percent said Israel should be subject to additional boycotts, even if it abides by all BDS demands — namely, withdrawing from "occupied territories," which were not defined by the poll, but are understood to include eastern Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and — indirectly — the Gaza Strip.'

Why would that be the case?

Are many of those people really "from the river to the sea" supporters, would Jeremy Corbyn agree?

Pittsburgh shooting: Victims of synagogue attack named - What do the BBC News know about the gunman?

'What do we know about the gunman?

US media said he had shouted "All Jews must die" as he carried out the attack.

Social media posts by someone with the name Robert Bowers were also reported to be full of anti-Semitic comments.' 

Suspected attacker Robert Bowers
FBI special agent Bob Jones told a press conference that Mr Bowers did not appear to be known to authorities prior to the attack.' 

That's all that the BBC purport to know about the Pittsburgh attacker 

There's more known but that shows that he wasn't a President Trump supporter, so the BBC won't report that he identified as not a Trump supporter. The BBC's bias by omission disgusts me as it so often does. 

Why has the cover page, which has always opened Asterix's comics, been removed from the new issue?

'Asterix. Why has the cover page, which has always opened Asterix's comics, been removed from the new issue? The publisher considers that the question "does not interest" ... 

Forty years after Goscinny's death and six years after Uderzo gave up drawing, screenwriter Jean-Yves Ferri and cartoonist Didier Conrad released the 37th volume of Asterix's adventures entitled Asterix and Transitalics .

... 

A detail intriguing however in this new album: the disappearance of the famous opening page presenting a map of Gaul with the magnifying glass placed on the Gallic village surrounded by the Roman camps of Aquarium, Babaorum, Laudanum and Petibonum.

Exit also the few lines locating the action: "We are in 50 before Christ. All Gaul is occupied by the Romans ... All? No. A village populated by irreducible Gauls resists again and again and the invader ... " The publisher he felt that this small text emblematic of the saga was today too violent to be delivered to millions of readers?'

Little by little our shared history and points of reference are being erased.

Is the BBC biased?: Omission

The ever wonderful isthebbcbiased.blogspot.com has a post along similar lines to my previous post about the BBC's omission of inconvenient information about the views of the synagogue shooter. 

'Of the Synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers, Sky News reports that:
In another post, President Donald Trump was criticised for allowing Jewish people to enter the US.

The Times says:
Bowers was not an admirer of President Donald Trump and wrote in one post: "I did not vote for him nor have I owned, worn or even touched a Maga [Make American Great Again] hat."
And even the Guardian details several of his posts criticising President Donald Trump. '

Scary times in which we live, time for Brexit? 

The gun attack on a Pittsburgh Synagogue

The BBC are relieved that the gunman was "white", the BBC were very quick to report that information. The BBC are trying to tie the attacker to President Donald Trump, along with pushing the gun control narrative. Meanwhile sites such as Zero Hedge seem to have more background information on, Robert Bowers, the alleged shooter. This article 
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-27/active-shooter-reported-pittsburgh-synagogue has some interesting screen captures, allegedly, from the gunman's social media presence. If true, then he didn't vote for Trump, never touched let alone ever wore a MAGA hat and said that "There is no #MAGA as long as there is a kike infestation". 

The BBC won't report such inconvenient facts, there's the US midterms to be won for the 'Democrats'.

The 80th Anniversary of the Kristallnacht

Tomorrow is the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, what are the chances of the BBC commemorating this event? How about the Labour Party? Or are elements of that party readying themselves for implementing a future clampdown on Jews? 

Ironically in October 1938 Germany the streets were full of people shouting: "Juden Raus! Auf Nach Palästina!" ("Jews out, out to Palestine!"). Somewhat different from today, where will the antisemites want Jews to go the next time? 

80 years may have passed but the evil continues.

EU in Brussels Rejects Italian Budget

In case you think that the EU is a collection of free democratic countries... 

'Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has warned that there is no "plan B" for Italy following the European Commission's unprecedented rejection of the Italian budget.

After weeks of back and forth between Brussels and the populist coalition government in Rome, the European Union's Commission has rejected the Italian budget and told the government to draft another, Il Giornale reports.

The EU has given the Italians three weeks to come up with a new budget proposal after the original had caused consternation in Brussels due to the increase of spending to around 2.4 percent of GDP in order to pay for the basic income policy proposed by the Five Star Movement.'

Abbas and Hamas use systematic torture to crush dissent per Human Rights Watch

This Times of Israel report https://www.timesofisrael.com/report-details-torture-by-pa-and-hamas-in-their-parallel-police-states reveals that the BBC and Labour Party's heroes Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are not as nice as they pupport:

'Human Rights Watch on Tuesday accused both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas of routinely engaging in "systematic" unwarranted arrests and torture of critics, suspected dissidents and political opponents, and of developing "parallel police states" in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, respectively.

In a 149-page report based on interviews with 147 witnesses, Human Rights Watch detailed a common method of abuse and torture known as shabeh — used both by the PA and Hamas — in which detainees are placed in painful physical positions for lengthy periods of time. Such practices cause distress and trauma to detainees, while often leaving "little or no trace on the body," the report said.

The widespread occurrence of such brutality indicates that "torture is governmental policy for both the PA and Hamas," HRW stated.

Shabeh techniques include forcing detainees into squats, powerfully stretching their arms above or behind them, and leaving them standing or sitting in child-sized chairs for hours on end.'

I wonder what Jeremy Corbyn would say about this, likewise the BBC. Presumably somehow it's all the fault of Israel. 

Jewdas activist compares Zionism to Nazi ideology during 'antisemitism awareness' Labour event

Another day, another piece of Labour antisemitism news. 

'A left-wing activist from the controversial Jewdas group compared Zionism to Nazi ideology when she gave "antisemitism awareness" to a Labour Party branch meeting.

During her 55-minute speech to the Dulwich and West Norwood Labour branch on Thursday, self-declared "non-Zionist" Annie Cohen also claimed there was "room for discussion" about collaboration between the "Nazi Party and members of the Zionist movement."

Ms Cohen said "Zionism is a racist ideology", adding it was "not possible to have a democratic Jewish state".'

The BBC's faux concern at threats to stab Theresa May

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45938754 shows how the BBC are conflicted. On the one hand the BBC are Tories Out and Vote Labour but on the other hand it's anti Brexit. Hence the BBC pushing the anti Brexit supporters line, and the headlines. 


Oddly I don't recall the BBC headlining this news about John McDonnell:

'In 2010, Mr McDonnell caused a furore by suggesting he would like to travel back in time and kill Margaret Thatcher in the Labour leadership contest. He subsequently apologised after he was condemned by both Tory and Labour MPs.

However on Monday new footage of Mr McDonnell from 2014 emerged of him joking about the incident and insisting that there was "massive support" for assassinating Mrs Thatcher, a year after she passed away.'


What's that, that was in the past so not a practical threat? 

How about Labour MP Jess Phillips about Jeremy Corbyn:

"... I've said [this] to him and to his staff to their faces: 'The day that ... you are hurting us more than you are helping us, I won't knife you in the back, I'll knife you in the front." 

I don't recall the shock horror comments by the SJWs at the BBC. 


The truth is that the stab in the back, or front, comments are simply allusions to the murder of Julius Caesar, not actual threats. Surely the BBC have some classical history or Shakespeare, or are we now post a Cultural Revolution now?

IRA plotted with Nazis to invade Northern Ireland per Telegraph

'A plot by the IRA to link up with the Nazis to invade Northern Ireland during the Second World War was disclosed in secret service files published by the Public Record Office... 

According to the MI5 records, Germany parachuted a spy into Southern Ireland in 1940 to assess the feasibility of the plan after being approached by the terrorist group.

But the plan was foiled after the spy, Dr Hermann Goertz, aka Heinz Kruse, or just "K", was arrested a year later by the Irish government.

The memorandum, written in 1943, read: "On the 5th May 1940 Goertz landed by parachute at Ballivor, Co Meath, Eire. Earlier that year the IRA had been in touch with the German SS through the intermediary of Stephen Carroll Held.

"Held had visited Berlin with a proposal from the IRA for an attack on Northern Ireland by the Germans to be supported by 5,000 IRA recruited in Eire and Northern Ireland.

"Goertz's mission was to examine this proposal and to obtain. . . the military information on which the joint attack by the Germans and the IRA on Northern Ireland could be based."

The report says that he met Stephen Hayes, then leader of the IRA in Dublin, but the meeting was raided. While money, a radio transmitter and a German airman's cap were seized, along with the manuscript of the plan, codenamed Kathleen, Goertz escaped.

For the next year Goertz, who had been arrested as a spy and deported before the war, lived in a number of IRA safe houses. During that period he was approached by a member of the Irish Army, Maj Gen McNeill, a fascist, the files say.

It is believed he was hoping to resurrect some kind of Fascist "Blueshirt" organisation with the help of the Germans. At first, British intelligence believed that McNeill's involvement meant that the Irish Government was collaborating, but its investigation showed he was acting independently.

The operation and McNeill's attempt to link up with the Nazis came to nothing when Goertz was arrested in November 1941.'

The above is from The Telegraph in 2001 

Oddly I don't recall the BBC reporting on this link between the IRA and the Nazis. Anyone on the right of British politics would be vilified now for their predecessors links with the Nazis but for the IRA, the BBC make an exception.

Man who dismissed antisemitism set for top Labour role in dealing with it

For some time I have been calling Jeremy Corbyn antisemitic. Is the Labour Party itself also? 

'A hard-left member of the Jewish Voice For Labour group is heading for a position on the Labour Party's top disciplinary body after pro-Jeremy Corbyn activists buried internal factional divisions and united to back him.

Stephen Marks — who once accused the Board of Deputies of being behind "imagined" claims of antisemitism in Labour — was placed on the left-wing "slate" of six suggested candidates for election onto the party's National Constitutional Committee (NCC).

On Wednesday, Momentum confirmed they would support Mr Marks, amongst the candidate list – despite earlier claims that founder Jon Lansman would block the endorsement of the JVL activist, which had been made by the far-left Campaign for Labour Party Democracy (CLPD) led by Pete Willsman, who was exposed by the JC over his Jewish "Trump fanatics" comments earlier this year.

Labour's increasingly left-wing membership will now almost certainly vote for the six names on the left-wing NCC slate, meaning Mr Marks could soon be ruling on controversial antisemitism allegations initially carried out by the party's National Executive Committee.'

Australian animals tortured, killed in Gaza - Watch the video only if you have a strong stomach

'WARNING: No words adequately describe the carnage in these videos and the scale of abuse endured by Australian cattle. It is shocking and completely harrowing to watch.

Filmed by civilians during the Festival of Sacrifice in October, this footage shows cattle being terrorised by crowds and tortured in streets and makeshift slaughterhouses — all in breach of Australia's live export regulations.

Most politicians precondition their support of live export on animals being treated 'humanely' and in accordance with regulations. That is why Animals Australia has provided each MP and Senator with this evidence of abuse, and implored them to watch it. They are in the position to ensure that this never occurs again, and that those responsible for this cruelty are called to account.

You can help ensure Australia's politicians see this evidence.'

Crime on the streets of London, not reported by the BBC or taken seriously enough by the Metropolitan Police

This London Standard report https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/hero-shop-owner-fights-off-100-youths-with-baseball-bat-during-supermarket-looting-in-north-london.html shows how London is falling apart:

'Scores of young men spilled out of a house party and caused mayhem on the streets of Crouch Hill. 

Witnesses said they set off fireworks by a petrol station, threw missiles at cars, pushed a moped rider off his bike and hurled eggs and paint at passers-by before storming the shop. 

Footage captured on the Budget Supermarket's CCTV shows the gang rush inside and clear the shelves of sweets before being chased out by staff, one of whom grabbed a bat from under the counter.

The shopkeeper chased a crowd of youths from the shop with a baseball bat
The terrified workers barricaded the door as the group kicked at the shopfront in a stand-off which continued until police arrived. Officers called in the Met helicopter, which kept watch as the crowd quickly dispersed.

Shop owner Hawar Bakhtear, 34, who can be seen running at the mass of youths with a baseball bat, suffered a deep cut to his hand after one attacker threw a bottle. 

He said: "They were like locusts, there were so many of them. The only thing I could do was protect my staff. I didn't care about the stuff they were taking. 

The crowd of youths swarm the shop off Stroud Green Road
"It was very scary and they need to be punished; if the police don't react they will do it all over again."

... 

A Met spokeswoman said officers were called to reports of up to 100 youths hurling missiles including fireworks at buildings and cars. She added: "A number of items were also reported stolen from a shop on Crouch Hill and objects thrown at the store front.

"Due to the large crowd, additional police resources from the Territorial Support Group were requested. Those officers were en route to assist but not required as the presence of the police helicopter quickly dispersed the group."

No arrests were made and enquiries are continuing, she added.'

Bye bye London?

the last remaining honest Labour MP or not.

'Margaret Beckett has had the decency to end the charade that Labour MPs have been playing all day: by telling the BBC's Chris Mason that it is more important to guarantee that the Speaker of the House of Commons gives Parliament maximum manoeuvrability over Brexit than to take action over bullying. The interview came after an independent inquiry into workplace harassment in Parliament was sharply critical of John Bercow and said that the present leadership of the House was incapable of bringing about meaningful reform.

Beckett's remarks are worth quoting in full: "Yes, if it comes to it, the constitutional future of this country, the most difficult decision we've made for hundreds of years, yes, it trumps bad behaviour."'

Sweden Begins Hand Grenade Amnesty

Welcome to Europe in 2018 

'A grenade amnesty period begins in Sweden this week with the government guaranteeing those who hand in explosive devices to police will not face arrest or prosecution.

Group disciplined for racism gives anti-Semitism training to Labour - Is this irony?

'A group whose leaders have been disciplined for anti-Semitism is providing 'anti-Semitism training' to the Labour party, MailOnline can reveal. 

Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL), which doesn't sign up to the internationally-recognised definition of anti-Semitism, has trained up to three constituencies so far, with plans for 70 more. 

JVL is promoting its own definition that says it is not anti-Semitic to compare Israel to Nazi Germany. '

Is this ironic? I don't know because I'm Jewish and a Zionist and therefore according to Jeremy Corbyn I don't understand irony.

Jews leaving the UK for Israel per The Jerusalem post

JPost reports https://www.jpost.com//Israel-News/Aliyah-numbers-fall-in-2018-despite-increase-from-Russia-and-UK

'Immigration to Israel from the United Kingdom also rose, by 7 percent to 371 newcomers. Many Jews are contemplating leaving there in light of the prospect of the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party, with its antisemitism problem, reaching power.' 

Not that the antisemitic Jeremy Corbyn or the antisemitic, by at least one of the IHRA examples, BBC care. 

Livery cab driver kept shouting 'Allah' before he beat Brooklyn Jewish man on the way to synagogue per Daily Mail Online

The Mail https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6276297/Livery-cab-driver-kept-shouting-Allah-beat-Brooklyn-Jewish-man-way-synagogue.html reports this:

'A 62-year-old Jewish man claims his attacker repeatedly shouted 'Allah' as he beat him in the middle of the road in Brooklyn, New York Sunday morning.

Lipa Schwartz was on his way to synagogue when livery driver Farrukh Afzal, 37, battered him until another Hasidic man came to the rescue.

... 

Jewish man claims his attacker repeatedly shouted 'Allah' as he beat him on Sunday morning

... 

A witness said the attacker 'was screaming at him that he hates the Jews and he would like to kill all the Jews''

Somehow I doubt that the institutionally antisemitic, by at least one of the IHRA examples, BBC will be reporting on such an incident; that would send a very inconvenient message. 

House of Commons abuse cases 'tolerated and concealed' per BBC News (update)

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45862741 has been added to. The report now includes this re Speaker Bercow:

'Dame Laura was appointed in March after a Newsnight investigation uncovered complaints about a number of MPs, including Speaker John Bercow, allegations which he denies.'

The BBC still protecting Speaker Bercow. 

House of Commons abuse cases 'tolerated and concealed' per BBC News

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-45862741 on a report into House of Commons bullying runs thus, and I repeat it all below to prove a point:

'"Disturbing" cases of bullying and sexual harassment have "long been tolerated and concealed" in the House of Commons, according to a report.

The report, by Dame Laura Cox QC, said there was a culture of "deference, subservience, acquiescence and silence".

She said the procedures for protecting staff were inadequate and said "broad cultural change" was needed.

The inquiry was commissioned following a BBC investigation earlier this year.

Dame Laura described the House of Commons as a "stark reminder of how bad things used to be".

"Abusive conduct of this kind is pervasive and no workplace is immune, but the culture in which it has been able to take hold in the House of Commons and the ineffective mechanisms for dealing with it make this a particularly serious case," she said.'


Not a word about The Speaker's Office? That's odd as Guido Fawkes reports:

'Dame Laura Cox explicitly names the Speaker's Office as part of the "senior House administration" which must replaced in order for the bullying culture to be addressed, concluding:

"I find it difficult to envisage how the necessary changes can be successfully delivered, and the confidence of the staff restored, under the current senior House administration."'

So why are the BBC protecting John Bercow's office, and thus him, from being mentioned in their report? I think we all know why.

Labour facing fresh anti-Semitism row

'The Mail on Sunday can also reveal that a Corbyn supporter is facing arrest after failing to appear in court to answer allegations that he branded a senior Labour figure a 'Jewish pig' and a 'bloodsucker'.

Corbyn sparks outrage by claiming EU backs Israel 'because of the Holocaust'

Another day another Jeremy Corbyn antisemitism story... 

'Jeremy Corbyn faced fresh outrage after a video emerged of him suggesting the EU only supported the state of Israel because of the Holocaust.

In an interview with the Kremlin-backed Russia Today network in 2012 the veteran leftie said it was outdated to back Israel based on the idea that it is a safe haven for Jewish people.'

The BBC will be all over this piece of news but then again the Labour Party's propaganda arm has a Labour Party leader to protect from criticism so maybe not. 

"Academics expose corruption in Grievance Studies"

"Making absurd and horrible ideas sufficiently politically fashionable can get them validated at the highest levels of academic grievance studies"

And of course supported by the SJWs at the BBC and elsewhere in the mainstream media.

An anniversary that the BBC won't commemorate

On this day in 1984 a bomb exploded at the Conservative party conference in Brighton's Grand Hotel.  The attack was carried out by the IRA who were wanting to wipe out Margaret Thatcher and her government.  The device used was 20lb gelignite bomb and it had been planted three weeks before its detonation by IRA explosives expert Patrick Magee.  Magee checked into the hotel and stayed in room 629, which was five floors above the hotel's VIP suites.  The device was hidden behind the bath panel in the bathroom.

It exploded as planned at 2:53am when most of the hotel's 318 guests were asleep in bed.  Mrs Thatcher was still awake working on the speech she would be giving to the conference the following day when the bomb exploded.  The explosion ripped through the top floors of the hotel, creating a huge hole in its front and causing a chimney stack to collapse and crash through the centre of the building.  It missed Mrs Thatcher's living room by inches, but hit her bathroom and bedroom, where her husband Dennis was sleeping.  Five people died, but the IRA failed to kill Mrs Thatcher and instead they hardened the Prime Minister's resolve to stand up to terrorism.  

Now thankfully no now senior Labour figures were involved with the IRA. Hold on, read this from Breitbart  https://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/05/14/jeremy-corbyn-was-arrested-at-ira-solidarity-protest-following-brighton-tory-conference-bombing/

'An investigation by The Times has revealed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was arrested in 1986 for taking part in a protest organised by IRA sympathisers to "show solidarity" with terrorists, including Brighton bomber Patrick Magee.

The newspaper reports the MP, who has a long history of supporting the Republican movement, had joined a picket outside the Old Bailey to "show solidarity with the Irish Republican prisoners put on trial by the British state", in the final week of the case.'

So no chance of the BBC reminding the British public of the history of Jeremy Corbyn and his friends. 

Labour rising star Mohammed Pappu shared antisemitic posts on Facebook per The Times

The Times reports https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/labour-rising-star-mohammed-pappu-put-antisemitic-posts-on-facebook that:

'A rising Labour star has been spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories to children in a troubled community where some school pupils have joined Islamic State, The Times can reveal.

Mohammed Pappu, 26, appeared with Jeremy Corbyn at last month's Labour conference where the leader praised his local party for helping to create a "fair, just and decent society".

Mr Pappu shared messages on Facebook that accused Britain of attacking Syria "to install a Rothschild bank". He also shared posts claiming that Israel had staged 9/11, the London bombings and the Paris terrorist attacks.'

Seems ideally placed to be promoted far within Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. 

MPs 'informing' on immigration hotline and BBC News know how to angle the report

Read the first part of this BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45825724 into MPs reporting illegal activity to an immigration hotline.

'An immigration enforcement hotline was called 68 times by MPs or their staff last year, it has been revealed.

Charities have now written to Commons Speaker John Bercow asking MPs to pledge not to inform on constituents, arguing people should not have to fear being reported on by their MPs.

The pledge has been signed by 107 MPs, however, Heidi Allen is the only Tory.

A number of Tory MPs said they "would be expected by most constituents to report any suspected illegal activity".

Some Labour MPs also declined to sign, without making their reasons public.

Of the 68 calls by MPs to the hotline, 34 were from Conservatives, 32 from Labour, one DUP and one Lib Dem.'

Note that the charities responses to the MPs actions is put as early as the second sentence along with the information that only one out of 107 MPs have pledged not to "inform" on constituents. Whilst a sensible person might think that reporting on suspected illegal activity was a good thing, the BBC disagree hence the structure of the report. The BBC hope that the public, that they have been brainwashing to support immigration, will react against the heartless Conservative MPs. 

If one reads on a little further then you discover that proportionate to the number of each Party's MPs, more Labour MPs reported incidents than those of any other party. Now that's an interesting story.

Labour antisemitism cases could cross hate crime threshold, says ex-senior police officer per The Jewish Chronicle

The JC reports https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/ that:

'The former head of the Metropolitan Police's hate crime department has said a leaked file of antisemitism complaints involving Labour Party members includes several threats that pass the threshold for a criminal investigation.

Among the evidence passed to Mak Chishty, who was in charge of dealing with hate crime for the force until last year, are messages stating, "We shall rid the Jews who are cancer on us all…." and "Zionist extremist MP who hates civilised people about to get a good kicking".

In another file, a serving Labour councillor is accused of inflicting "ten years of hell" on a child, calling him a Jew Boy.

The files, obtained by radio station LBC, include a total of 45 Labour antisemitism cases of which Mr Chishty said 17 should have been reported to the police as a race-hate incident for investigation.

He said a further four - including the ones detailed above - warrant a criminal investigation as hate crimes.'

Oddly the antisemitic, by at least one of the IHRA examples, BBC has not reported this news but then the BBC are more interested in assisting a Labour Party government to worry about a bit of antisemitism in the Labour Party. 

Man is called a 'Yid c***'. Police say they don't think it was a hate crime. Per The Jewish Chronicle

'Police are reviewing whether they were right to tell a Jewish man there was not enough evidence to take action against his alleged assailant who admitted calling him a "Yid c***".

Rob Goodman complained to Dorset Police after he was told no further action would be taken against a man who targeted him with the abusive language during a football match. 

Mr Goodman, who played in Littledown's Wednesday league, said he was assaulted by two men during the game. 

He told police the first man told him to "f*** off you Yid c***" and elbowed him in his stomach, while another man ran up to him and punched him in the head.

The police originally told Mr Goodman, who is Jewish, that they did not deem the verbal abuse to be religiously aggravated, despite the first suspect admitting to using the words in a police interview. 

In an email from a Dorset Police officer, Mr Goodman was told: "Unfortunately, after all evidence has been gathered and both suspects interviewed… there will be no further action."

Officers told Mr Goodman that the incident would not be investigated further because the suspect had "given a credible defence as to why this was said. There is not sufficient evidence to prove that this was a religiously aggravated statement on his part."'

You can read more here https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/dorset-police-bournemouth-racist-abuse but not on the antisemitic by at least one of the IHRA examples BBC.

However, if a Muslim had been called a Muslim c*** then the BBC would have been all over this story and would have been drumming up stories that the British police were institutionally islampohobic. Odd how the BBC treat accusations of antisemitism from those of islampohobia.

Green Party fails to adopt IHRA antisemitism definition at Spring Conference

The JC reports https://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/green-party-fails-to-adopt-ihra-antisemitism-definition-at-spring-conference that:

'The Green Party has failed to adopt the internationally recognised definition of antisemitism after their home affairs spokesman told their annual conference the code was "politically engineered to restrict criticism of Israel's heinous crimes upon the Palestinian people".

Speaking against adopting the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, Shahrar Ali, who has launched a campaign to lead the party, told the Green's Spring Conference in Bristol: "Instead of policing thoughts we should be policing Israel."

The former deputy leader of the Greens, who once compared Israeli actions in Gaza to the Holocaust,  also claimed: "Instead of an IHRA-inspired definition, we should be moving motions condemning the new embassy in Jerusalem and condemning the racist nation state law of apartheid Israel.

"We do not wish to follow in the footsteps of Corbyn's Labour. We should at least learn from their mistakes."'

A party with as many antisemitism issues as the Jeremy Corbyn lead Labour Party, hard to believe?

Israeli diplomat Danny Danon brands Corbyn an antisemite per The Times

'Jeremy Corbyn is an antisemite, one of Israel's most senior diplomats has said.

Danny Danon, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, told an event in the House of Lords yesterday that the Labour leader "is an antisemite who wants to return Britain to dark periods in history".

According to reports in Israel Mr Danon added "Corbyn gives oxygen to racism by embracing his terrorist friends and encouraging the activities of BDS [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions]."'

More here https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/israeli-diplomat-danny-danon-brands-corbyn-an-antisemite but obviously not on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, and antisemitic by at least one of the IHRA examples, BBC. 

Corbyn’s Private Secretary Routinely Working In Parliament Without Security Clearance

I've reported on this before:

'One of Jeremy Corbyn's closest aides has not been granted a Parliamentary pass due to unspecified security concerns – but has continued to work in his Commons office for more than nine months.

HuffPost UK can reveal that Iram Awan, the Labour leader's Private Secretary, has not had her application approved by the authorities on the advice of the security services, due to questions over known associates.

But Awan, a British-born national whose role includes providing "strategic advice" to Corbyn, has been escorted into Parliament on a routine basis by other members of his team.

She was hired late last year and has worked in the Leader of the Opposition's office in the Palace of Westminster since despite her lack of security clearance.'

This is from Huffington Post but still no mention on the Labour Party's propaganda arm, the BBC.

If Winston Churchill's comments cannot be excused by the excuse of the time they were made in, then what about Mahatma Gandhi’s 'racist' quotes?

US astronaut Scott Kelly suffered a backlash for being positive about Winston Churchill. Apparently the defence of different times is no defence. So would the same SJW types attack Mahatma Gandhi? 

All the below quotations are direct quotations from "The Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi". All grammatical errors and misspellings are the responsibility of Mohandas Gandhi, the original author, and are preserved for historical consistency. They can be seen here http://originalpeople.org/mahatma-gandhi-racist-quotes/


Before Dec. 19, 1894
"A general belief seems to prevail in the Colony that the Indians are little better, if at all, than savages or the Natives of Africa. Even the children are taught to believe in that manner, with the result that the Indian is being dragged down to the position of a raw Kaffir." ~ Vol. I, p. 193



Sept. 26, 1896
"Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness." ~ Vol. I, pp. 409-410



Oct. 26, 1896
"There is a bye-law in Durban which requires registration of coloured servants. This rule may be, and perhaps is, necessary for the Kaffirs who would not work, but absolutely useless with regard to the Indians. But the policy is to class the Indian with the Kaffir whenever possible." ~ Vol. I, p. 435



Before May 27, 1899
"Your Petitioner has seen the Location intended to be used by the Indians. It would place them, who are undoubtedly infinitely superior to the Kaffirs, in close proximity to the latter." ~ Vol. II, p. 270



Feb. 15, 1904
"Of course, under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population and it is an undue tax on even the proverbial patience of my countrymen." ~ Vol. III, p. 429



June 1, 1906
"The Boer Government insulted the Indians by classing them with the Kaffirs." ~ Vol. V, p. 59



July 3, 1908
"We were then Marched off to a prison intended for Kaffirs. There, our garments were stamped with the letter 'N,' which meant that we were being classed with the Natives. We were all prepared for hardships, but not quite for this experience. We could understand not being classed with the whites, but to be placed on the same level with the Natives seemed too much to put up with. I then felt that Indians had not launched on passive resistance too soon. Here was further proof that the obnoxious law was intended to emasculate the Indians." ~ Vol. VIII, p. 198



July 3, 1907
"Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilised – the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live almost like animals. Each ward contains nearly 50 to 60 of them. They often started rows and fought among themselves. The reader can easily imagine the plight of the poor Indian thrown into such company!" ~ Vol. VIII, p. 199



Dec. 2, 1910
"Some Indians do have contacts with Kaffir women. I think such contacts are fraught with grave danger. Indians would do well to avoid them altogether." ~ Vol. X, p. 414


 
I'm rather a fan of Mahatma Gandhi's role in achieving independence for India, although I am more of a Winston Churchill fan. However if Winston Churchill is freely described as a racist, or as bad as Hitler, then why does Mahatma Gandhi not suffer from the same SJW types' criticisms? 

That's a brave/foolhardy accusation to make about a newly sworn-in Supreme Court Judge

make a rather brave/foolhardy accusation about a Supreme Court Judge:

'Facebook's newest product is "Portal," a home camera intended to follow you from room to room while you videoconference.

The product is presumably overseen by Consumer Hardware VP Andrew Bosworth, last seen telling female Facebook employees to shut the fuck up about the company's top lobbyist throwing a victory party for serial rapist Brett Kavanaugh on the eve of his lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.'

Calling a Supreme Court Judge a 'serial rapist' seems rather brave/foolhardy. I wasn't aware that Justice Brett Kavanaugh had been tried, let alone convicted, for rape. Why would Boing Boing make such a seemingly libellous claim? 



Corbyn’s Complaint - Philip Roth explains

This article 
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/jeremy-corbyn-labour/572464/ in The Atlantic by Philip Roth is a must read. It's a fine summary of the case for the prosecution. 

Here's an extract that should receive more attention from the likes of the BBC:

'He (Jeremy Corbyn) was no racist, he proclaimed over and over again. Maybe not, but his anti-racism wasn't all embracing. You could, by no very-elaborate ethical contortion—since Jews were hardly any longer a poor or an oppressed people—be both anti-racist and anti-Semitic. At times, indeed, it seemed that a discreet seasoning of the second was a guarantee of an unwavering commitment to the first. Little by little the sophistry was laid bare.'

Something that an unbiased BBC would question Jeremy Corbyn about. Unfortunately the BBC are more akin to the Labour Party's propaganda arm than a unbiased news reporting organisation.

Former MI6 Chief "Troubled" by Corbyn per GuyNews


'Former chief of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove says he is "troubled" by Jeremy Corbyn's past associations:

"I think someone coming from my background is troubled by Jeremy Corbyn's past associations, some of which I find surprising and worrying… He has enthusiastically associated himself with groups and interests which I would not say were the friends of the British nation…

"I'm expressing concerns about him and his political past which I think are pretty extensively shared by a lot of people."'

Any moment now the BBC will report this, not.

The Fireman - hero?

https://youtu.be/DECqrt9p5SA

Satire or prediction? 

Brett Kavanaugh: Key senators back embattled Supreme Court choice the BBC News can use analogies that Conservative MPs can't

This BBC report https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45766729 includes some 'Analysis' from, in my view TDS sufferer, Anthony Zurcher, BBC North America reporter:

'... Now that the bombs have been thrown, it's time to assess the fallout.'

Presumably at the BBC it's a good thing to use 'bombs' analogies but not 'suicide vests', but I don't see the massive difference in offence caused by the two expressions.

Jeremy Corbyn has lit a fire of Jew-hate that is now beyond his control

Another day and another antisemitism accusation of Jeremy Corbyn. This JC article is so important that I reproduce it here. 

'Jeremy Corbyn has lit a fire of Jew-hate that is now beyond his control
'Corbyn has said and done things that can reasonably be described as antisemitic,' writes Dave Rich

A little over three years ago, shortly before Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Labour Party, this newspaper set out seven questions for him to answer regarding people and organisations who he had supported, assisted or spoken alongside. It was a gruesome list of terrorists, Holocaust deniers and antisemites, and it was vital and urgent for Mr Corbyn to answer these questions satisfactorily, the JC urged, lest he "be regarded from the day of his election as an enemy of Britain's Jewish community".

Nevertheless, cautioned the writer of that editorial, "there is no direct evidence that he has an issue himself with Jews". This was a question of who Mr Corbyn associates with and the causes he promotes, rather than his own personal attitudes or prejudices.

Three years on, that initial warning seems prescient; but the benefit of the doubt extended to Mr Corbyn personally has long run out. This is one reason why the new edition of my book, The Left's Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Antisemitism, published last week, has a more pessimistic outlook than the original version that came out in 2016.

Back then, it was possible to plot a way for a Corbyn-led Labour Party to navigate its way out of this problem. If the party leadership accepted that the antisemitism amongst its members was not just the result of random prejudice or ill-chosen language, but the product of a political mindset, then there was scope for the change that was necessary to turn around what was already a mounting problem.

If people at all levels in Mr Corbyn's party, from the leadership to the grassroots, could take complaints of antisemitism seriously instead of dismissing them as smears designed to silence critics of Israel, then common ground could be found in understanding the particular nature of left wing antisemitism and taking steps to tackle it.

If other opinion formers on the left, including influential voices in the broader movement that propelled Corbyn to the leadership, led a process of learning and engagement with the Jewish community, and if those who attacked the community were vigorously and consistently called out for it, that might provide a platform for the party to rebuild its relationship with British Jews.

Instead, Labour has zigzagged from one false step to another, like a pinball bouncing its way towards the hole marked "Game Over". From Oxford University Labour Club, to the supressed Royall Report, the Chakrabarti whitewash, the failure — twice! — to expel Ken Livingstone, the chronic failings of its disciplinary processes, and political interference at the highest levels to avoid taking action. Throughout all of this, we witnessed a constant stream of antisemitic statements, posts, tweets and comments from Labour Party members, councillors, activists and officials, past and present, all the while dismissed by Mr Corbyn's most loyal supporters on social media and in party meetings as smears and lies invented by a coalition of Zionists, Tories and Blairites to keep Britain from reaching its socialist utopia.

Then there is Mr Corbyn's own contribution to this sorry tale: his support for the antisemitic mural, his affection for the "brothers" of Hamas, his conspiracy theory about "the hand of Israel" being behind jihadist terrorism in Egypt, his backing for a campaign to rename Holocaust Memorial Day, his wreath-laying, his excuses and evasions and, most damning of all, his haughty, knowing comment that "Zionists" do not understand English irony, even if they — we — have lived in this country all our lives.

Two years ago, most opinion columns about antisemitism in the Labour Party stressed that nobody accused Mr Corbyn himself of being antisemitic; his flaw was that he just did not recognise it, he did not think left-wing people were capable of it, or he had not taken the necessary action to deal with it.

There are not many columnists saying that now. Mr Corbyn may or may not be an antisemite, but he has certainly said and done some things that can reasonably be described as antisemitic.

The other thing that has changed in the two years between the first and second editions of my book is that an antisemitic political culture has taken root in the grassroots of the left-wing movement on which Mr Corbyn's project depends.

This culture can be found in the Facebook groups that bear Mr Corbyn's name and the alt-left, new media blogs that count as news sources for his more devoted supporters. Some of these Facebook groups have tens of thousands of members, and websites like The Canary, Novara Media and Skwawkbox have a direct line to the party leadership and are more trusted by Mr Corbyn's supporters than most national newspapers.

This does not mean that every Corbyn supporter, every member of these Facebook groups, or every writer for these websites, is antisemitic. Far from it. Most, like the rest of the country, are not interested in Jews, Israel or antisemitism. But whenever those subjects are discussed in these forums, the dominant view is that Israel is an apartheid or Nazi state, Zionists are deceitful, manipulative racists, and anyone who complains about antisemitism in Labour is, frankly, a liar and a political enemy.

Add in Twitter and certain Facebook groups with their regular conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds, claims that Israel is behind Isis terrorism and even the occasional Holocaust-denying post, and you have an antisemitic political culture that has nothing to do with ordinary criticism of Israeli policies.

Back in March, when the Jewish community demonstrated outside Parliament to protest about Labour antisemitism, Mr Corbyn accepted for the first time that this was a significant problem. The left has its own forms of antisemitism, he wrote, that should not be "dismissed as simply a matter of a few bad apples". Momentum, the activist movement that organises Mr Corbyn's foot soldiers, agreed. "Accusations of antisemitism," they said, "should not and cannot be dismissed simply as right-wing smears nor as the result of conspiracies."

But their followers were not listening.

Some Labour MPs who attended the community demonstration were abused on social media and threatened with deselection.

The Facebook pages of The Canary and Skwawkbox filled up with comments about "More ridiculous, vile and false antisemitism smears", "Wealthy Jewish [sic] prepared to slander Corbyn", "This is about the illuminati/world bankers/Rothschild's [sic] who happen to majority Jewish [sic] and happens to be true of what is happening to our planet", "Zionists run the BBC", "This is what happen's [sic] when Zionist Jews control our government!", and so on.

Some in the leadership of the Labour Party and Momentum now understand that they have lost control of what their supporters think about Jews and "Zionists". The worry is that it is too late.

One consequence is that Jewish Labour members increasingly find their local party meetings intolerable. An obsession with Israel, expressed in the most extreme, hateful terms, and the assumption that any talk of antisemitism is an anti-Corbyn trick, has persuaded many that it is time to leave.

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Labour is now institutionally antisemitic. This is an alarming situation for all British Jews, whether they support Labour or not. But for Labour, the party that once enjoyed the support of the vast majority of British Jews, and which prides itself on its anti-racism, it is nothing short of a disgrace.'

Is Theresa May an anti-Conservative plant?

The past:

First call the Conservative Party "the nasty party" so giving Labour, the Lib Dems and the BBC lots of anti-Conservative ammunition to run with for years. 

Secondly damage the Conservative Party core support, just before her calling an early General Election, with her death taxes policy. 

Thirdly calling the early General Election under the old, outdated and favourable to the Labour Party, boundaries. 

Fourthly to seemingly agree the Chequers plan (or at least show it) with Angela Merkel before showing the Cabinet. 


Moving forward:

She's indicating the softest possible Brexit. 

Might she call another early General Election to ensure that the election is again contested on the Labour Party favouring boundaries? 


Conclusion:

Is it beyond the realm of possible that Theresa May has to make sure that the next government is that of a Jeremy Corbyn lead Labour Party. 

Is Theresa May trying to destroy the Conservative Party? If not, what else explains her policies and strategy? 

The Road to Perdition of Jeremy Corbyn's most extreme supporters

This JC report https://www.thejc.com/comment/comment/the-road-to-perdition-the-thought-process-of-jeremy-corbyn-s-most-fanatical-supporters-1.469616 is a must read, here's an extract:

'The Road to Perdition of Jeremy Corbyn's most extreme supporters
The thought process of some of Jeremy Corbyn's most fanatical devotees is extremely simple, but no less scary for it. Here is how it works.

... 

Now, there are a lot of bad stories which have circulated about him. Apparent associations with some nasty people over the years. But who's spreading these stories? News organisations controlled by the wealthy and powerful, the good friends of the same government that's been keeping you and others like you down in the dirt. They know what's coming for them if your man gets it. So of course they're willing to lie about him, or twist the truth until it's unrecognisable. Your man hates injustice, that's all. He spoke to some unsavoury people, certainly, but only to open up a dialogue which might help to bring about peace. Never mind that he only ever seems to have spoken to those on one side of any argument, it was all done with positive intentions.

But there's another group of people who seem to have a problem with your man. They claim to be terrified of him. Most recently, they've claimed he's an antisemite. It fills you with anger to hear Jeremy - you can call him Jeremy, after all, he's more than a politician, he's your friend - slandered in such a fashion. 

He's a lifelong anti-racist! These Jews don't know what they're talking about, that's all. 

But maybe it goes further than that. After all, everyone knows Jews are rich - they must have a lot to lose if Jeremy gets in. And many of them support Israel, too, which everyone knows is a bad place. Yes, that must be it - they support Israel, while Jeremy, who hates injustice, has campaigned against Israel for decades. No wonder they don't want him getting in. Anyway, there's a small group of Jews telling you that it's all nonsense, these smears against Jeremy. They're the real Jews, this lot. The others must all be lying.

The press - that Tory loving press - won't shut up about it though. And neither will the MPs - people who claim to call themselves 'Labour', but they're against Jeremy, so they're traitors. This issue of Jeremy and the Jews won't go away, even though you know that it's all a lie, that it's all a smear. Jeremy loves Jews. Haven't you seen that picture of him smiling and shaking a Rabbi's hand?

The more you think about this, the angrier you feel. How dare they do this. How dare they say these things. They've never felt the poverty you have - they're all rich, aren't they? They've never been desperate. They're just saying these things to keep people like you down. You've been reading all about it on some pro-Corbyn blogs. You don't bother reading mainstream media anymore - why bother? It's all lies, anyway. And there are a lot of Jews working for the mainstream media, aren't there? And in the financial sector. Surely that can't be a coincidence.

You just wish they'd be quiet, for once. But those damn Jews just won't shut up, with their lies. In fact, you've heard there's actually a book called The Jews and their Lies. And another, called the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, revealing the extent of Jewish control. Some guy was talking about it in the We Love Corbyn Facebook group you're part of. Maybe these Jews hate Jeremy so much because they realise he can't be bought, or because their loyalty is really to Israel. 

One thing's for sure, if they prevent Jeremy from getting into Number 10, you'll make sure they pay for it. You've been reading the New Testament, and it wouldn't be the first time they sought to take down a good and righteous man who was calling out injustice. 

And if Jeremy does get in despite the best efforts of those Jews, they're in for a world of hurt. You'll make sure of it.

Welcome to Perdition'

Scary stuff? 

Labour's complaint to IPSO over the coverage of Jeremy Corbyn’s visit to the Tunisian cemetery has been dropped

'Labour's mass complaint to the press regulator Ipso over this summer's press coverage of Jeremy Corbyn's visit to a Tunisian cemetery in 2014 has been dropped, according to individuals at the newspapers involved.

The party made the unprecedented decision to complain against most national newspapers, complaining that the Sun, the Times, the Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the Express and Metro had misrepresented the event, which saw the Labour leader attend a ceremony commemorating Palestinians who died in the country.

The party had complained that the articles suggested he was commemorating members of the Black September terrorist group or those who carried out the 1972 Munich massacre, which Corbyn denied. Any Ipso investigation could have forced the party to disclose extra details and supporting evidence, while also forcing the press regulator to rule on a definitive series of events.

It is not clear why the complaint will not be going further, although one possibility is that Labour simply allowed the complain to time out. An Ipso spokesperson declined to comment.'

That's from The Guardian here 


The most interesting line is this:

'Any Ipso investigation could have forced the party to disclose extra details and supporting evidence...'

Now why might the Labour Party be reluctant to go down that line? 

Diane Abbott questioned on that LBC interview

I'm sure you remember Diane Abbott's car crash interview about police numbers. Today I found this BBC Daily Politics interview with Diane Abbott about that interview. 


Do you believe Diane Abbott's excuse? 

More importantly note that Diane Abbott also clearly had no idea what the current rate of Corporation Tax was and what it would be raised to. 

Why does Diane Abbott keep her position in the shadow cabinet? It can't be her mastery of her brief. 

As an aside, has any interviewer ever asked Diane Abbott why she chose to holiday in a communist state at the height of the cold War? 




This should have been posted over the weekend.

'On September 29-30, 1941, 77 years ago today, SS and German police units and their auxiliaries, under guidance of members of Einsatzgruppe (mobile killing unit) C, murdered the Jewish population of Kiev at Babi Yar, a ravine northwest of the city. This was one of the largest mass murders at an individual location during World War II. As the victims moved into the ravine, Einsatzgruppe detachments shot them in small groups.

According to reports by the Einsatzgruppe to headquarters, 33,771 Jews were massacred in two days. In the months following the massacre, German authorities stationed at Kiev killed thousands more Jews at Babi Yar, as well as non-Jews including Roma (Gypsies), Communists, and Soviet prisoners of war. It is estimated that some 100,000 people were murdered at Babi Yar.'

Lest we forget.

The BBC hide any reporting that Jeremy Hunt Compares EU to USSR

I've just looked at the BBC's dedicated Brexit news page 
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/politics/uk_leaves_the_eu and I cannot find any mention of Jeremy Hunt's speech comparing the EU with the USSR. 

"At the moment you, European friends, seem to think the way to keep the club together is to punish a member who leaves, not just with economic disruption, but even by breaking up the United Kingdom with a border down the Irish Sea…

"The EU was set up to protect freedom – it was the Soviet Union that stopped people leaving. The lesson from history is clear – if you turn the EU club into a prison, the desire to get out of it won't diminish, it will grow, and we won't be the only prisoner that wants to escape…"

Why would the EU supporting BBC be keeping this speech from the British public? The BBC is meant to be impartial!
