Jeremy Corbyn should sue Nigel Farage over this outrageous falsehood

Stranglehold: The signer was actually interpreting a comment in a previous Nigel Farage TV appearance, but it works equally well to describe feelings across the nation at this right-wing mouthpiece’s misrepresentation of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The reason other politicians keep smearing Jeremy Corbyn with false accusations of anti-Semitism is that he keeps letting them get away with it.

Mr Corbyn’s attitude is that, if it isn’t hurting people other than himself, he’s big enough not to worry about it.

The problem with that is that it harms his supporters, who are also smeared with the same allegation; they may be said to be supporting an anti-Semite.

Nigel Farage has appeared on GB News, saying the following:

This Writer knows of no occasion when Mr Corbyn has ever suggested that “the Jews run the world”, and I think Farage should be dragged into a courtroom to explain exactly why he said such a thing.

Sadly, I doubt Mr Corbyn will be bothered – and in this failure he is letting us all down.

Thunberg and climate protesters acquitted because new laws are ‘too broad’ and ‘unworkable’

Greta Thunberg: the courts have sided with her against the police.

This is clear: the Tory government’s changes to protest law are unworkable.

Rochdale Parliamentary candidate George Galloway launches legal action over TV slurs

George Galloway: he knows his way around the law, so Rachel Johnson, Trevor Phillips and ITV may have a fight on their hands.

The host and pundits of a Sunday morning TV politics show appear to have taken on the wrong person.

Rachel Johnson, Trevor Phillips and Sky News, the channel broadcasting his show, have all been targeted by George Galloway, after this (allegedly) happened:

In fact, if true, it would be libel – and it seems that Mr Galloway, who has long been attacked under the same banner and has proved himself to be well up to the challenge of dismissing such accusations, intends to prove it.

Some are delighted:

The case may rattle on for longer than the by-election campaign – which would be perfect for Mr Galloway because it will give him a chance to continue campaigning for Palestine in full view of the public, no matter who wins on February 29.

Did Rachel Johnson have the slightest inkling that this might happen, when she spoke on Trevor Phillips’s show?

Bad week for Environment Agency as ‘chicken poo’ failure claim lands it in court

Wake up call: these demonstrators against chicken farm pollution, including Feargal Sharkey, made their point outside the hearing at Cardiff Crown Court.

Yes, this is another ‘rivers of shit’ story.

But it isn’t about privatised water companies, for a change.

Instead, it’s about the Environment Agency failing to do its job and regulate the amount of – literally – crap going into our rivers.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

This is the second blow for the Agency this week, after it was found to have been colluding with the Tory government on ways of hiding whether UK bathing spots were unsafe for swimmers.

Now we learn that representatives of the EA have been taken to court in Cardiff over their failure to stop the River Wye being polluted with unacceptable amounts of chicken excrement from farms along its length.

Here’s a Sky News report on it:

The BBC reported,

The charity River Action, who brought the case, says laws to keep waterways healthy have not been enforced.

The Wye last year had its status downgraded to “unfavourable”, and the rapid expansion of chicken farming in the catchment area was partly blamed.

The Environment Agency said anyone breaking the law could be prosecuted.

The Wye flows along the English-Welsh border and is home to otters, kingfishers and the endangered Atlantic salmon.

“We believe that the government and the Environment Agency have acted unlawfully by deliberately not enforcing the critical regulation that, had it been in force, would have prevented the contamination of the Wye catchment area,” Charles Watson, the chairman of River Action, told the BBC.

And here’s Feargal Sharkey:

This Writer has something of an interest in this issue as I live near the Wye. The case is ongoing, and I look forward to the result.

South Africa to take UK and USA to the ICJ for war crime complicity

The International Court of Justice.

I can’t find the source for this but here’s Skwawkbox:

A team of almost fifty South African lawyers is preparing a legal case to bring to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the United Nations’ top court, against the US and UK, for their complicity in Israel’s array of war crimes in Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

South Africa’s successful ICJ case against Israel last month led to Israel being put formally on trial for genocide and resulted in a string of binding orders on Israel to stop its slaughter of Gazans and even to protect Palestinians from harm, as well as to ensure adequate aid reaches the strip’s 2.5 million people, many of whom are now starving and homeless.

Israel has flouted the rulings, continuing and even intensifying the mass murder and blockade, and is being supported in its flagrant disregard for international law by the UK and US, who are providing both material and financial aid, and giving political cover by refusing to condemn Israel’s actions or to call its crimes what they are, instead casting doubt on the mass deaths and brutality and denigrating the Court’s ruling.

Here’s Damo to put more flesh on these bones:

This Site has been vocal in its support for the UK, at the very least, to be brought to book for complicity in genocide.

Rishi Sunak (himself aided and abetted by Labour leader Keir Starmer) sowed the wind and now it seems he’ll reap the whirlwind…

Except the International Court of Justice doesn’t have any muscle with which to support its rulings.

Any finding against the UK will have a huge effect on public perception, though.

It will tar this country’s government as a supporter of genocide and a flouter of international law.

Defunding UNRWA could be a primary act of genocide. Is the UK guilty?

UNRWA staff at work: do you see any terrorism here? [Archive image.]

The United Kingdom may have committed a primary act of genocide against the people of Gaza by acting to defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine (UNRWA), based on nothing more than an unproven claim by Israel against 12 of its staff.

That is the claim by Tayab Ali, a director of the International Centre of Justice for Palestinians, as shown in the video clip below:

So, defunding UNRWA is collective punishment because it punishes the Palestinian people of Gaza as a whole, and although there is no single crime called “collective punishment”, the crimes that constitute it are recognised by countries including the UK. Therefore, in defunding UNRWA, the UK may be contributing to those crimes.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

But the UK may also be committing a primary act of genocide. The International Court of Justice has made a provisional order that the rights of Palestinians should be protected, which should trigger the UK’s obligations as a signatory of the Genocide Act – to protect people from genocide.

By defunding UNRWA, the UK has taken an action that could accelerate death and suffering in Gaza, in concert with the activities of the state that is accused of being the primary perpetrator of genocidal acts.

So the UK, along with the United States, Germany, Japan and a few others, are now potential suspects to be investigated for war crimes.

But there’s a darker aspect to this.

Mr Ali suggested that, by defunding UNRWA after the ICJ used it as a source of information that led it to make its ruling, the UK is telling the ICJ and the United Nations that some nations should be considered above the law, and both the ICJ and UN will face reprisals if they do not grant them special dispensation (in this case, to murder or displace everybody in Gaza).

In short: is the UK telling the ICJ and UN that it owns those organisations – at least in part – and will remove its ability to function if it does not exempt the UK and other owners from the rules to which they all signed up?

And is this because the UK’s government is worried about being held complicit in the crime the ICJ is investigating?

Mr Ali suggested that South Africa or an intervening state should consider triggering Article 63 of the International Court of Justice Statute, making states like the UK parties to the ruling, so that it becomes binding on them because they have defunded UNRWA.

Finally, he points out the suspicious timing of the allegation against UNRWA – that Israel decided to make its claim that 12 staff members were terrorists, right after the ICJ made its ruling.

Even if that allegation is true, the activities of 12 members of staff do not justify defunding the entire organisation.

Furthermore, that allegation has been made by a country that is plausibly accused of committing genocidal acts and protects what it wants to do – and is set against a ruling that does not demand defunding, sanctioning or otherwise calling Israel to account in such a way.

If both UNRWA and Israel had been deprived of funds and resources, there might have been a justification for doing it. But doing it to UNRWA alone, before an investigation was even concluded, is unacceptable, according to Mr Ali.

This Writer would tend to agree.

So: would any of the parties to the ICJ’s ruling on Israel’s potential genocide, including/or South Africa, care to do the honours?

See how national governments ignore the International Court of Justice when it suits them

This is what a holocaust looks like (or at least one interpretation): and as the artist intends, it might accurately refer to what Israel is visiting upon Gaza now. The International Court of Justice agrees that a genocide may be taking place but some national governments have chosen to ignore this. Who do they think they are?

After the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel may have been committing genocide in Gaza, national governments have been queueing up… to deny it.

Here are a few examples I’ve found:

Here’s the editor of the Jewish Chronicle being debunked:

There were probably loads of these loonies popping out of the woodworking to deny the genocide that many of us can recognise going on before our eyes.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Fortunately, there are those who can see that the ICJ’s ruling has been a huge blow to the credibility of the genocidal regime in Israel. Here’s South Africa’s Ronnie Kasrils, who was nothing to do with the submission to the court, but knows a few things about fighting an apartheid-based government:

Some have said South Africa was mistaken in its submission, but most of us are with Martin Shaw, below – aren’t we?

But with a national government that supports Israel and is apparently (even if only tacitly) cheerleading the Gaza genocide, what can be done in the UK to support moves to stop Israel from causing more harm?

Well…

Probably not. But it’s worth asking – and This Writer will try to keep the pressure up.

Hundreds of doctors to sue NHS because government PPE failings gave them Long Covid

One MORE time: the PPE used in UK hospitals is pictured bottom right. Hundreds of doctors are now suing the UK government because they say they contracted Long Covid due to the inadequacy of the PPE they were provided.

In a sane country, wouldn’t this be enough reason for a government to take action to recover the millions (billions?) of pounds it wasted on useless Personal Protective Equipment during the Covid-19 crisis?

Hundreds of doctors plan to sue the NHS, claiming a lack of proper PPE left them disabled with Long Covid.

The case centres on an NHS diktat to downgrade the level of masks when the virus took hold. Staff were only required to wear blue surgical masks, plastic aprons and gloves.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

They claim they are facing financial ruin and that authorities should have known they were being placed at risk.

The government could recoup a huge amount of money, just by taking action to claw back the money wasted on inadequate PPE.

For example: what about the £203 million given to PPE Medpro, the company pushed through the illegal Tory VIP lane for contracts by Michelle Mone, who’s said to have profited by £65 million from the deal?

That could provide a million quid in compensation for more than 200 doctors with Long Covid.

And its just the tip of the VIP lane iceberg.

Why does the public purse always have to pay for the profligate failures of the government?

Here’s how Israel’s mouthpieces are spinning the ICJ ruling – and how to debunk it

Spokespeople for the Israeli government and military are trying to claim that the International Court of Justice found in that country’s favour because it did not support a ceasefire between Israel and Gaza but instead called on Israel to cease any activities that may possibly correspond to definitions of genocide:

Note that Israel’s liar-in-chief, Eylon Levy, claimed that the ICJ called for Israel to abandon any rescue of the hostages taken by Hamas on October 7 last year. This is a lie. The ICJ made a very clear demand for the hostages to be returned to Israel, safe and well.

So there you have it: Israel’s spokespeople and mouthpieces want you to think the ICJ ruling was a victory for them.

UK response to ICJ ruling: cut funding to agency helping Palestinian refugees

Rishi Sunak and Benjamin Netanyahu: is this the reason the UK responded to the ICJ’s ruling over genocide charges against Israel by suspending funding of aid to Palestinian refugees, rather than suspending arms exports to Israel?

The UK’s Tory government has responded to a ruling by the International Court of Justice that Israel is now on trial for genocide – by cutting aid to the UN agency that provides help for Palestinian refugees.

Is that not the correct way to view the cessation of funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which works to provide health care, education and other humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria and employs around 13,000 people in Gaza?

The announcement follows allegations – from that bastion of dishonesty, the Israeli government – that people working for the UNRWA were involved in the October 7, 2023, attacks on Israel.

According to the BBC,

Mark Regev said there was information showing teachers working in UNRWA schools had “openly celebrated” the 7 October attacks.

He also referred to an Israeli hostage who, on her release, said she had been “held in the house of someone who worked for UNRWA”.

“They have a union which is controlled by Hamas and I think it’s high time that the UN investigated these links between UNRWA and Hamas,” he added.

This Writer would not trust that man to tell me the correct time.

But his claims have been supported by the fact that the UNRWA has launched an investigation into them – and sacked several staff before it has had a chance to report back.

The UK joins the US, Australia, Italy, Canada and Finland, who have already suspended funding to the agency.

The UNRWA’s former chief spokesperson, Christopher Gunness, said the suspension of funding was disproportionate and could only lead to further suffering:

“One million displaced people are currently taking refuge in and around UNRWA buildings. They are the ones who will suffer as a result of this decision,” said Mr Gunness, adding: “The curtailing of UNRWA services will also destabilise the region at a time when Western governments are trying to contain a regional conflagration.”

This is a view that is widely-held on the social media:

But what should the UK have done?

Well…

Would that not have been the more obvious choice?
