I'm more convinced than ever that atheism is one of the keys to saving this planet!

It is the key.

 

Back to this election again how has the Labour party allowed every single day to be kicked off with the Brexit anti-Semitism narrative ?it is not as if there isn't enough material out there with Boris's past to actually have to make it up go on the attack ffs. Actually bounced out of house this morning after watching BBC coffee hut in Wales interviewing voters and not one mention of Brexit all about environment and NHS . Then this groundhog Day shit again.

The Rabbi can have whatever view he wants, but the way that the BBC website has had it on the top of its homepage ever since it was released is... cunty. 

That's the point. There's no doubt there's a very small antisemitic element in the Labour party as there is in the Tory party. I'd argue the latter prevalence seems to be more mainstream. However the way the media is reporting this is not unsurprisingly unbalanced. Racist PM, fine, Tory holocaust denier candidate, fine.

 

Given the Rabbi's pro Israel and pro Tory stance he's hardly being objective here which barely seems to get a mention.

 

Criticism of the Israeli governments actions is entirely legitimate given that a large minority of Israeli citizens don't support their behaviour.

Labour funding crisis: Jewish donors drop 'toxic' Ed Miliband

The leader's 'principled' stance on Palestine deters backers, forcing party 'to go to unions with begging

 

 

Not putting the whole article up but this is near the end...

 

Last week, the actress Maureen Lipman (below) announced that she was ending five decades of support for the Labour Party over its new foreign policy.

Listening to the radio this morning they had some Jewish bloke on who claimed Corbyn was AS due to his endorsement of that dodgy mural of 2 obviously Jewish guys trampling over the backs of the poor and the fact that he has steadfastly ignored the Jewish Council an done nothing to improve the situation with them.

 

That mural was very dodgy... it was immediately apparent to me that it was AS... it was directly out of some Goebbels propaganda poster circa 1942.. I fail to see how Corbyn didn't immediately recognise it as such

Re the Jewish Council he met them April last year and promised to organise another meeting a little later... they never heard back from him. This smacks of lousy leadership to me. The mural I can't explain... I really don't think he's AS but is he really that naive and/or stupid? I don't know

Either way it's all very poor, indeed

It goes without saying that the Rabbi is deffo a bad Tory and the Tories are almost certainly worse than Lab re Islamophobia and all round racism but it's still absolutely shit

Guardian has just put in an article that the Chief Rabbi is "a staunch supporter of Tottenham Hotspur football club."

 

Fuck off. That's the last straw for me Clive.

He didn’t endorse anything, so I have to presume the rest of your post is a bit iffy as well

Didn't he defend the mural and later apologized for it?

He questioned why the mural was to be whitewashed and certainly supported the artist saying "He was in good company."

 

Apparently without actually looking at the mural

I am pretty sure you know very little about him and you may not have your finger on the pulse of British politics.

 

Just a guess based on your posting past.

Mate -- it is what happened - he himself has said it.

 

"I sincerely regret that I did not look more closely at the image I was commenting on, the contents of which are deeply disturbing and anti-Semitic."

 

Never go full TK.

Imagine if Corbyn was actually AS.

 

He'd be toast.  A few million like me, WASP Labour voters, would be disgusted and walk away from the party unless they changed their leader.  

 

But he's not.

So I'm not walking away.

And the party isn't dumping him.

And it's polling well.

And it's growing.

And Jews are supporting him. 

And Muslims are supporting him.

And the black community is supporting him.

And the working class are supporting him.

And the doctors and nurses are supporting him.

And the teachers are supporting him.

And economists are supporting him.

It feels great to support him.

    • Fuck me that's a Career ender.  We may as well save some time and money and get rid now.
    • Likewise. The one-on-one king; nobody does it better. The only errors he has ever made were through his own nonchalance, as if he were blasé about how good he is
    • 3 more games like that? That should make the season finale a lot more fun.
    • Jürgen Klopp has given fulsome praise to his players as Liverpool had to fight exceptionally hard to record their 18th straight league win after a 3-2 victory against West Ham on Monday night.

      The home fans walking into Anfield would have by and large expected a routine victory against a side who are battling to hold onto their Premier League status.

      And when Gini Wijnaldum scored from a flowing move within the ten minute mark, it appeared that the Reds would stroll to another three points.

      However the Hammers who have just one league win in 2020 and whose fans are in uproar over the current ownership of the East London club, were in the mood to cause some uncomfortable moments for the home side and equalised through a Issa Diop header which went through Alisson.

      They then took a shock lead early in the second half when substitute Pablo Fornals smartly turned the ball home and any discussion of a routine evening at the office was now well and truly on the back burner.

      During this winning run in the league, Liverpool have had their hurdles to overcome and this was another one.

      While they were not at their fluid best, they found a way again with goals by Mo Salah (via a Lukasz Fabianski howler) and Sadio Mane. 

      Speaking after the game as the Reds equaled the consecutive league victory mark set by Man City, Klopp said he continues to be be amazed by the ability of his squad to perform game after game.

      The Echo reported the manager as saying:

      A couple of years ago, maybe at the beginning of my time here, I said we wanted to write our own stories and create our own history.

      “Obviously the boys have taken that really seriously, when I said that!

      “It’s all cool, but not too important at the moment. 

      “I never thought it would ( the consecutive wins) would bebroken or equalled We did it and I cannot believe it happened to be honest.

      “It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult.

      “We have spoken about wonderful games and hard games, and it was a difficult one tonight. 

      “You can only get those numbers by winning all those games. The brilliant ones, the rougher ones, the more grumpy ones.”

      “That’s what counts. 

      We all know that it’s very special, but at the moment we are just in the situation and want to recover and want to prepare for the next one.”  

      Despite also battling for their Premier League survival, Klopp said the next clash against Watford on Saturday evening will a considerable challenge.

      “The next three points are always the hardest. 

      “It’s always been like this. It would be strange if we said anything different. 

      “The next 12 points will be difficult because they are difficult, you saw that tonight.

      “The next opponent is waiting, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us. It’s completely normal. It will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.

      “I saw them against United and they played really well here because at the moment everybody is fighting for everything.

      “I saw the boys tonight, they are really ready to fight. 

      “As long as we have that then nobody should worry, but we really have a lot of work still to do.”   Klopp also a special mention for the crowd after the 21st successive home league win.

      “We have to be ready for the hardest work as a unit, and we were there again together with the crowd tonight, I loved that fact. 

      “Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get.   "So far so good."
