The 2017 poll results that show Labour’s antisemitism crusade is based on a lie

If you’re having trouble coping with the idea that Keir Starmer’s Labour Party – for all its posturing about opposing racism, opposing anti-Semitism – is in fact both anti-Semitic and racist, here’s some context.

Way back in 2017, just two years after Jeremy Corbyn was elected as leader of the Labour Party, the Tory-owned polling firm YouGov ran a survey on anti-Semitism in the main political parties.

The results will be surprising to anybody who believes Labour became more anti-Semitic under Mr Corbyn’s leadership: in fact, the reverse is the case.

The poll was commissioned by the Campaign Against Antisemitism, and This Writer’s experience of that organisation suggests that this was an attempt to find that Labour had become more anti-Semitic between 2015 (before Mr Corbyn was elected) and 2017.

But the graph shows that anti-Semitic attitudes among Labour members had not only fallen – they had fallen more sharply than in either the Conservative or Liberal Democrat parties:

Dorset Eye explains what the findings said to Mr Corbyn’s political opponents:

It meant a lot of work was required to tarnish the name of a long term human rights supporter and anti racist. This is when the establishment set to work.

That work involved attacking campaigners against racism and anti-Semitism as exactly the kind of people they opposed. It involved accusing Jewish people of being anti-Semites.

It involved vilifying Mr Corbyn and his supporters – including Diane Abbott; the woman who receives more racist hate mail than any other MP has now been accused of racism herself.

All on the basis of a lie – or at least, on a claim that could not be supported by the facts. Keir Starmer’s right-wingers in Labour have a lot to answer for.

    The proven liar and fraud, Starmer and his self serving cronies on the front bench have heaped shame and disgrace on the labour movement as a whole….Starmer has destroyed the labour party.
