Home Affairs Committee report on UK Antisemitism.

Section dealing with the Labour Party is surprisingly frank & quite damning.

A cross Party committee with 7 Tories and Corbyn hating Chukka. Even they had to admit there was no evidence the Lab Party was anti-Semitic. They produce absolutely no evidence of anti-Semitism, apart from a few historical social media rants, most of them from well before Corbyn became leader.
Meanwhile the govt goes full BNP on foreigners, looking for lists of them working in UK companies, the Foreign Sec is a man who calls Africa "that country" populated by "pickaninnies" with "water melon smiles" and is courting the extremists in UKIP for votes.
Yep, close your eyes folks. Corbyn is the problem.

Livingstone has done more for equal opportunities, anti-racism, LBGT rights and ethnic minorities in London than any of the smarmy faced managerial new labour twats who constantly snipe at him.
Back in the 70's, long before it was cool he was promoting LBGT rights. The mainstream press and the Lab establishment piled into him with vicious, homophobic bile. He stood tall and carried the fight and changed perceptions, changed attitudes. He didn't do it alone, but he was at the vanguard and it took real physical and political courage in those days.
As for being an anti-semite, Ken must be one of the strangest. Not many anti-semites would organise an Anne Frank Memorial and become best friends with holocaust survivor Eva Schloss,

the Labour party only helps knackers who are long-term on the dole. And those knackers don't even bother to vote.

Palestinian lobby group paid for Corbyn to meet Assad in Syria | News | The Times & The Sunday Times ( £ )



Jeremy Corbyn accepted a free trip to meet President Assad of Syria funded by the Palestinian lobbyists who organised an event this week at which Jews were blamed for the Holocaust.

The Labour leader was taking part in a stunt to mark Balfour day, the anniversary of the signing of a British declaration in 1917 supporting a Jewish home in Palestine.

Mr Corbyn’s hosts were the British-based Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), a campaign group which four days ago organised a House of Lords event demanding that Britain should apologise for Arthur Balfour’s promise.

Baroness Tonge, who chaired the meeting, resigned…

Typical two faced Corbyn.

'Mr Corbyn’s hosts were the British-based Palestinian Return Centre (PRC), a campaign group which four days ago organised a House of Lords event demanding that Britain should apologise for Arthur Balfour’s promise.'

The reason Britain 'should apologize' is that they didn't implement the Balfour Declaration
before World War 2 - which could have saved countless Jews by emigration during
the conflict.:cool:

A cross party parliamentary group goes to a sensitive part of the Middle East to fact find and discuss issues.

It's a phucking disgrace, a scandal.

Certainly was, when another Leftie, George Galloway, was doing it!!!:lol:

I wonder how much the Israel hater actually trousered during his 'fact finding'???:rolleyes:

But that was more or less correct. They're shagged in the long term, and Blair's election was an important step in their long spiral into blimp oblivion.

Some figures below to illustrate how almost academically irrelevant Labour have become - the last two months' opinion polls from ukpolling.co.uk and a summary of October council byelections from politicalbetting.com. Obviously the Tories also fared disastrously in the byelections, but that is the fate of sitting govts - for Labour to be losing seats all over the place while in opposition in mid-term is simply catastrophic. The lost Tory votes are going to the Lib Dems and sometimes Indos, meaning either they will return to the Tories in a GE or split the opposition vote as in the 1980's and early 90's. The opinion polls would suggest the former, actually.


October Monthly Summary
Labour 14,155 votes (28% +1% on last time) winning 10 seats (-5 seats on last time)
Conservatives 12,657 votes (25% -5% on last time) winning 10 seats (-3 seats on last time)
Liberal Democrats 9,306 votes (18% +6% on last time) winning 6 seats (+3 seats on last time)
Independent candidates 3,351 votes (7% +2% on last time) winning 3 seats (+2 seats on last time)
United Kingdom Independence Party 3,156 votes (6% -4% on last time) winning 1 seat (+1 seat on last time)
Scottish National Party 2,888 votes (6% +4% on last time) winning 1 seat (+1 seat on last time)
Green Party 2,367 votes (5% -2% on last time) winning 0 seats (unchanged on last time)
Plaid Cymru 495 votes (1% unchanged on last time) winning 1 seat (+1 on last time)
Other Parties 2,692 votes (5% -1% on last time) winning 2 seats (+1 on last time)
Labour lead of 1,498 votes (3%) on a swing of 3% from Con to Lab since last time

No ,,,,,,,,But it needs to re-think it's essentially colonial attitude to "UK" politics. Closing the Branch Office in Scotland would be a good first step,

First read that book when I was about 13, thought it was the bees knees.
Began to read it again about 10 years later, gave up, seemed more like a kids' comic than anything to be taken seriously.

And the cricket goes the same way as the rest of the insects in the Irish LP.

When Blair and new Labour were flying high in the 2000s the talk was that the Tories could never win a majority ever again.

Even in Jan 2015 it was considered impossible.

The Tories can

So things can change pretty quickly.
