I would like to know more about this shed, though.

It came second on George Clarke's Shed of the  show last year, just behind an old gypsy caravan with a toilet that was actually a home brewing machine.

I don't doubt that the existence of Israel plays its part, but the issue pre-dates the re-establishment of the Jewish state. That Hobson book that made disparaging remarks about Jewish financiers, which Corbyn got into hot water for writing a foreword to, was written in 1902, for instance.

History is littered with examples of bigotry on all sides - like the trade unionists who marched in support of Enoch Powell after his "rivers of blood" speech - but progress away from bigotry has always been led by the left.

I did a European political history A Level 1848 to 1918,  and one of the modules covered the Rothschilds and the influence they held over various Royal households in Europe. The module was very positive stating how brilliantly they had worked and the innovative methods used to establish this position of prominence, so I am a bit baffled that these days any mention of their work is met with screams of anti-semitism. They were fucking bankers surely they are meant to make money ?

I don’t get how calling people wealthy is an insult anyway. 

Half my post got cut off. It was actually Trevor Phillips who said that, but nobody cared, because the reaction to things like this are in large part determined by who the person is, rather than what they're saying.

The Rothschilds did run banks and did hold a lot of power. Nowhere near to the extent that anti-semites will have you believe but there is still a lot of fact. Using it as a stick to beat jews is anti-semitic of course but simply denying it is stupid.

It's dog-whistle stuff. Stating historical facts, in context, is one thing, but racists usually bandy around conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds and George Soros as code for "the Jews control the world".

Hard to dislike McDonnell. I mean, like Corbyn, not the right guy at the right time, but clearly both guys you’d enjoy a nice game night with.

Interesting thread on the "Anyone But Corbyn" bastards illicitly knackering the 2017 campaign. 

 

 

 

Banging on about this now might seem like I'm being sulky and a sore loser, but I'm convinced that a democratic Socialist government would have handled all aspects of the pandemic differently, saving thousands of lives.

Comrade Corbyn seems to have the daily mail softening on another of his ideas

 

 

Stronts has been saying this for years. I do seem to remember people going to town on him for quite a while. All the cool kids.

Did Iain McNicol think he was in a live action version of The Thick of It, or something, here? Absolute state of this shit:

Depends, doesn't it? Was it even a genuine offer? And who is it that he's supposed to be reaching out to? Because if it's people at HQ, and this is 2017, they've just spent the last two years actively working against him.

Sweet Jesus.

Incredible stuff, isn't it? Genuinely like something out of a comedy. He's like a character from The Office, or something.

In fact even if it's the PLP, the same applies.
