Suzie Dent liked my reply to one of her tweets the other day. Not sure how I'll ever top that.

Riley wouldn't surprise me. But Dent...?

Got to admit that would be tough to top, I find Suzie extremely saucy.

Is it? I stand corrected.

Mind you, despite a lifetime commitment to correct spelling, she's so nice she probably wouldn't correct you.

Bit of a kerfuffle on twitter about her today. She's done a piece in the big issue, mentioning Labour under Starmer and the need for a strong opposition. Nice of her to do a piece in the Big issue considering the shite she came out with about the one candidate who would have actively tried to do something about the homeless issue.

What other stuff? 

 

I'm sure we've done this topic to death, but the bit where Labour illegally discriminated against Jewish people played a large part in it, I would have thought.

Can you show me that bit? Ideally the bit where Jeremy Corbyn did that.

Do you not remember the EHRC report? You must have a short memory.

 

It's immaterial whether or not it was Corbyn personally. He was the leader at the time, the buck stops with him.

The report that found 2 breaches? 

 

And why is immaterial when I was talking about her slandering of the man (Not Labour) who wished to actually do something about homelessness? Or is it only immaterial when it suits your argument?

Ah, only two breaches of equality law. That's okay then.

 

The key findings of the report are here if you need your memory jogged.

“Although some improvements have been made to the process for dealing with antisemitism complaints, it is hard not to conclude that antisemitism within the Labour party could have been tackled more effectively if the leadership had chosen to do so,” the report states.

Why is her attacking Corbyn personally 'immaterial' ?

I don't know what you mean by "personally". All attacks, if you can call them that, were made upon him in his capacity as Labour leader.

Calling him an anti-semite and wearing a t-shirt calling him by his name a 'racist endeavour'... but yes pretend you don't know what I mean. 

 

Let's not forget that the picture in the t-shirt was of him at an anti-apartheid event that she had printed over with her slur. But you crack on being your usual disingenuous self.

I didn't know specifically what you meant. I appreciate the clarification.

 

She's entitled to her opinion, and the "racist endeavour" image was a satirical response to Corbyn supporters calling the existence of a Jewish state a racist endeavour, and Corbyn's failure to properly address the issue of antisemitism in the Labour Party (his continued playing down of the issue being the reason he presently sits as an independent MP).

 

Either people have a right to satire or they don't. It's odd someone would defend photoshopped images of, eg, Jo Swinson running over squirrels but not a photoshopped image of Jeremy Corbyn. Very odd.

 

Yes, I know about the apartheid protest. It was one the Anti-Apartheid Movement asked him not to attend. He and his mates in the Revolutionary Communist Group were expelled from the movement on the request of the ANC. The ANC didn't want to be associated with him.

 

Look at what his placard actually said: "Defend the right to demonstrate against apartheid". It was a dig at the people who asked him not to protest. He and his ultra-left colleagues tried to take over the AAM. This is all documented in the press at the time.
