As #EHRC publishes its report on alleged #Labourantisemitism, remember the motives of the groups who wanted it

Here’s a useful Twitter thread from David Rosenberg:

The point about the Campaign Against Antisemitism is well-made.

This so-called charity is nothing of the kind – as anybody victimised by its attentions knows very well.

The CAA attacked me in 2017, publishing an article attacking me as an anti-Semite on the eve of local elections in which I was standing as a Labour Party candidate in order, it seems clear to me, to discredit me and interfere with my chances of election.

None of the claims in the article were accurate.

The author had taken articles I had written and selectively quoted from them passages that could be made to appear anti-Semitic.

This is quote-doctoring, which any respectable journalist will tell you is an unacceptable practice.

Another word for it is lying.

That is the kind of organisation that wanted the EHRC investigation.

Remember that when you find out what’s in the report.

The Tories are cheating us out of our pensions – and our retirements

Arguments used by the Conservative government to justify increasing the age at which we may draw our pensions are increasingly false, it seems.

Fellow social media journalist David Hencke has all the information on his website.

He says the Tory claim is that as life expectancies continue to rise, it will be impossible for the pension fund to pay out for everybody unless the pensionable age rises too.

There’s just one problem:

Ministers always quote figures up to 2011… [the] last year of any big rise in longevity which had risen for decades.

Since then the rise has flattened – in one year it actually fell – and last year was the first in five years that showed a small rise. Next year the ONS is warning will be the first year they will have figures of the effects of Covid-19 – and the hint is that longevity will fall because of the disproportionate deaths among pensioners.

Worse still:

When you compare the UK to many other developed countries both men and women have lost out big time in the longevity stakes. The countries that make up the UK (with the exception of Northern Ireland) are all near the bottom of the table.

So while we all are being expected to wait longer for our pension in the UK, our extra weeks of life expectancy fall well below many comparable developed countries. We are being cheated – or at least not given the full facts – by our political leaders. So don’t believe any facile claims we have a world beating system for pensioners. Far from it.

The increased longevity argument was used strongly by the Department for Work and Pensions in its court battle to avoid paying compensation to 3.8 million women whose pension age rose from 60 to 66 – but who were not given enough warning to make proper preparations for it.

But our people aren’t living as much longer as people in other countries. What are those nations doing about pensions? And how are they doing it?

It seems clear that Mr Hencke is right and we are being cheated.

I wonder what we can do about it, if DWP representatives are prepared to perjure themselves in court to preserve a lie.

Johnson threatens to remove Tory whip from MPs voting against his Brexit Bill. Deja vu?

Dominic Grieve: here’s a former Attorney General from whom Boris Johnson removed the Conservative whip. Now Geoffrey Cox is facing the same – along with any other Tory MPs who may defy Johnson’s plan to u-turn against his previous policy, breaking international law in the process.

It is indeed reminiscent of last year – but back then, Boris Johnson was trying to coerce his colleagues into voting to uphold his EU Withdrawal Agreement. Now he’s trying to coerce them into voting against it.

What a vacillating political vacuum he is.

He’s gambling on enough of the 2019 Parliamentary intake being so stupid that they think loyalty to their leader is more valuable than loyalty to the law. It isn’t.

The fact is that anybody voting to break international law will have a stain on their reputation for the rest of their life. It will seriously harm their career but Johnson won’t tell them that because he’s too busy forcing them to give him what he wants.

So when Downing Street does this…

… the correct response (and I’m amazed that I’m using this person to present the argument) is this:

I wonder how many of Johnson’s 363 MPs (he is the 364th) actually realise this?

The situation has created contradiction after contradiction:

Plus, of course, if he starts expelling his own MPs, Johnson will make his own position weaker; he won’t have as large a majority in the House of Commons and he will have betrayed the trust of his ministers and backbenchers, who may reasonably expect him to take account of their concerns rather than threatening them.

But in all honesty, it may be too much to ask for enough Tories to defy Johnson’s tyrannical whip.

It would need a minimum of 47 Tories to rebel, and I think they’re too easily-herded.

So this seems likely:

That’s only a stop-gap solution, of course. The Lords cannot stop a Bill becoming law – especially in the face of government with a large Commons majority.

But if they delay it, other developments may render it moot. Trade negotiations are ongoing, and so is the debate within the Conservative Party.

The result of the first vote – today, September 14 – may determine the pattern of future events.

Campbell’s comeuppance as he’s called out over hypocrisy on Tories/Starmer

Alastair Campbell: act in hate, repent at leisure?

Alastair Campbell deserved this – as may many others in the same position.

After he campaigned – vigorously – to stop Jeremy Corbyn from winning the general election last year, he is now complaining about the activities of the government he helped put into power.

In this case it’s about the downgrading of hundreds of thousands of ‘A’ level grades.

Not only that, but he is also attacking the new Labour leader that – again – by his actions he helped install (if Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour had won the general election, he would be prime minister now and the results issue would have been handled more fairly).

So the reaction when he did so was entirely appropriate:

Have you witnessed any similar hypocrisy, online, by people who helped Boris Johnson into power and are now moaning about him?

If so, send in your examples. Let us all see these people for what they are.

Take part in the online day of action against Universal Credit sanctions

Today – July 1 – conditionality and sanctions return to the UK’s benefit system.

This means the two million people who signed up for Universal Credit because of the Covid-19 crisis will now be expected to show they are looking for work, and will be sanctioned if they fail to do so.

For the first time, they will experience what – for example – people with disabilities have suffered under the Conservatives for the last 10 years.

Some people are about to be rudely awakened from their previous complacency, I reckon!

Perhaps they would like to take part in this national day of action, organised by one of the larger representative organisations for people with disabilities, DPAC (Disabled People Against Cuts) under its banner of the Scrap Universal Credit Alliance (SUCA).

Here’s what they’re about and what you can do:

There is now overwhelming evidence of both the serious harm that the sanctions regime inflicts on the most disadvantaged members of society and the fact that sanctions are punitive and counter-productive to the aim of getting people off benefits and into work.

Join the Scrap Universal Credit Alliance in our demands to:

#EndConditionality

#ScrapSanctions

#NoMoreBenefitDeaths

Ways you can get involved:

  • Get active on social media at 12 lunchtime on 1 July using the above hashtags and directed @DWP @justintomlinson @theresecoffey . You can find a list of findings, facts, stats and links for reference here: https://dpac.uk.net/2020/06/sanctions-findings-facts-stats-and-links/
  •  Write to your MP asking them to put pressure on the government not to restart conditionality and sanctions.
  • We encourage people to write to their MPs.
  • Write to your local paper
  • If you think you may be affected by conditionality restarting and putting your safety at risk because you still need to shield, it may be worth gathering what medical evidence you have (for example if you received a letter or correspondence from the NHS telling you to continue shielding until the end of July) and pro-actively sending it in to your job centre/adding it in to your Universal Credit journal. It is difficult to know what to do given the complete absence of information from the government.

Labour’s odd response over Labour Against Anti-Semitism data breach. Guilty conscience?

Sometimes, when you make a complaint to a large organisation, its representatives try too hard to hide information – and end up giving more away.

Consider the case of the Labour Party and Labour Against Anti-Semitism. You’ll be familiar with the situation: LAAS had used an email list of Constituency Labour Party secretaries to which the fringe group should not have had access.

So party members wrote to the party, asking for those involved to have their party membership suspended while a detailed investigation into their conduct is held, with the possibility of expulsion if they are found guilty of crimes.

Now read on, as Martin Odoni of The Critique Archives, who drafted the complaint letter template, details the response he received and explains what is wrong with it:

Following up on that complaint I lodged with the Labour Party over the weekend about the misdeeds of the fringe group Labour Against Anti-Semitism, I today received a reply from Tim Dexter of the complaints unit. Here is the text; –

_____

Dear Martin,

Thank you for your email.

I want to assure you that the Labour Party takes its responsibilities in handling sensitive data extremely seriously and we would never provide third parties with any sensitive information they are not entitled to.

LAAS are a completely separate organisation to the Labour Party. They are not affiliated to the party and do not hold any status within the party.

If you have concerns about how they have obtained your data I suggest in the first instance you ask them where they obtained the information from. If they are unable to provide a satisfactory response then you should consider raising a complaint with the ICO, information on how to do this can be found at the following website: https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/your-personal-information-concerns/personal-information-concerns/personal-information-concerns-report/

I never implied that the Labour Party itself was leaking sensitive data to anybody – the thought had never even crossed my mind come to that – so this is the classic example of a guilty-sounding, unsolicited denial that, far from allaying suspicions, instead raises suspicions that were not there in the first place.

The bit about LAAS being a separate organisation is not really the point. I did mention it myself in the original complaint, come to that, and I was asking quite explicitly for the party to take action against them for operating in Labour’s name without permission. Mr Dexter displays startlingly little interest in that idea, or concern about the damage LAAS could do to the party’s reputation.

Some of LAAS‘ members … most particularly Euan Philipps, are members of the Labour Party. Even if they treat their capacity as LAAS members as a completely separate business, when they do what they do in the name of the Labour Party, that non-afiliation status should not afford them any protection. But Mr Dexter appears happy to let Philipps et al have it both ways.

I never suggested that LAAS has hold of my contact data at all. I am certainly not aware of receiving any communications from them. I was drawing the party’s attention to LAAS using contact data of an NEC member against his explicit instructions. Use of such data when ordered to delete it by their subject is expressly illegal. Furthermore, LAAS‘ attempt to use his request to damage his reputation over social media might also be illegal under defamation laws. Again, Mr Dexter appears to be utterly disinterested in this.

I can only conclude that the Labour complaints team are perfectly comfortable with members of the party being engaged in illegal behaviour when acting in the name of Labour. Given how over-zealous the complaints team are about going after members who criticise Israel, that seems to be a decidedly uneven attitude.

Either that or the complaints team did not pay proper attention to what I wrote.

I shall send a follow-up complaint to the Labour Party soon.

Will you do the same?

How to complain about the Labour Against Anti-Semitism lawbreaking – to TWO organisations

Martin Odoni at The Critique Archives has done it again.

Days after he provided us all with a template letter to send a complaint to the Labour Party about the shocking behaviour of Margaret Hodge MP in comparing Labour’s disciplinary process with Nazi Germany, he has produced another.

This concerns the fringe group Labour Against Anti-Semitism (LAAS), whose organisers seem to believe they are entitled to ride roughshod over the law of the UK, ignoring data protection legislation to access email lists they had no right to use.

I have written about the incident here.

I am grateful to long-time friend of This Site Glynis Millward, who wrote as follows:

“This self styled group are in breach of data protection act (DPA) and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
I am advising all those who have been targeted by this group to contact the ICO, who have flagged up LAAS on their systems quoting the reference ENQ 738439
The ICO case officer dealing with this is:

Ciara Hagan
Case Officer
Information Commissioner’s Office
0330 414 6209”

Please feel free to complain about LAAS to the Information Commissioner’s Office via the details above, and to the Labour Party, using the template letter accessed via the link to The Critique Archives, below.

The other evening, I put up a template (well, of a sort) for people to submit complaints to the Labour Party about the appalling comments of Holocaust-Manipulator Margaret Hodge. Today, the fringe Labour Party group, ‘Labour Against Anti-Semitism’ (LAAS), a smear-group who operate in the name of the Labour Party but without the party’s recognition or permission, have been revealed to have broken the law, possibly on three counts – data protection, breach-of-privacy, and defamation. I have therefore written up another complaint and sent it to the Labour Party, and am once more sharing the text, so others can copy-paste with appropriate amendments to add their own voices if they so wish. E-mail address to send to is [email protected].

LAAS ‘troll’ group ‘data breach’: named/shamed NEC member for asking email-list removal | The SKWAWKBOX

If I recall correctly, Labour Against Anti-Semitism is the pet project of one Euan Philipps, who was quick to accuse me of wrong-doing when I was accused of A-S in May last year.

It seems that this organisation is not above wrong-doing of its own, however. Do people like this believe the law doesn’t apply to them – while doing everything they can to smear the innocent?

Here’s Skwawkbox:

When Darren Williams – who does not seem to have ever asked to be included in LAAS mailings – asked to stop receiving them, as he had every right to do, instead of simply complying as data laws require, LAAS tweeted a screengrab of his request with a snide comment:

Data laws do not allow such mailings without the explicit permission of the ‘data subject’ to use his/her email address for that specific purpose.

Under UK data protection laws, data breaches can attract huge fines imposed by the Information Commissioner, as well as incurring police action.

Only 250? Anti-Semitism demo against Labour flops with tiny attendance – and dodgy speeches

Maureen Lipman: You’d think a performer of her standing would know the danger in ill-advised words.

“Who’ll go?” That’s what This Writer asked yesterday (April 7). The answer, we now know, is: Practically nobody:

Hundreds of protesters gathered in the rain outside Labour’s London headquarters today for a demo against anti-Semitism.

There were shouts of “Corbyn out”, “racists” and “shame”, and boos among the crowd of around 250 people when speakers named the Labour leader.

The protest was called by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, which has regularly criticised Mr Corbyn’s approach.

Brilliant. 250 misinformed sheeple, standing outside empty offices, howling lies about one of the strongest advocates against racism of any kind (including anti-Semitism) that the UK has.

I also asked if Gideon Falter, chairman of the CAA, would take the right message from a poorly-attended event – that his organisation’s lies about Mr Corbyn, and about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, were falling on deaf ears.

It seems he did not:

https://twitter.com/LabourAW/status/983011769303040000

And what are we to make of Maureen Lipman?

She stood next to Mr Falter, to speak against the Labour Party – but brought instant ridicule on herself by attacking Ed Miliband, the party’s previous leader and a man of very clear Jewish descent:

“Everything we’ve heard today points to the fact that we have an anti-Semite as the head of the British Labour Party,” she said.

In that case, everything that was said at the event was slander, because Mr Corbyn is accepted by rational people as the antithesis of an anti-Semite. Indeed, as David Rosenberg states, above, Mr Corbyn is “one of the most longstanding opponents of all racism including anti-Semitism”.

I wish Mr Corbyn would take legal action against Ms Lipman and the CAA for their outrageous lies. Mr Falter was standing right next to her and failed to correct the claim.

But he’s far too clever to be drawn in.

The CAA’s attack on Labour was a false-flag attempt to rid the UK of the best opposition to Theresa May’s diabolical Conservative government. It was clever to attack Jeremy Corbyn on the basis of a problem that everybody accepts exists in many organisations, but the claims of the organisation and its allies have stretched credibility too far and they have lost the confidence of the public.

Why give them the oxygen of publicity when their argument is dead?

Another demo against alleged Labour anti-Semitism. Who’ll bother to go?

Gideon Falter: Let’s hope he gets the right message.

The Daily Mirror may have been over-optimistic in its claim that “hundreds” of protesters will gather outside Labour HQ tomorrow.

In fact, it seems unlikely that hundreds of people still believe the Labour Party isn’t doing its utmost to eradicate anti-Semitism.

One person who claims to believe that is Gideon Falter, chairman of the Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is organising the latest attack on the Labour leadership.

Mr Falter seems to have ignored his organisation’s own research, which states – doesn’t it? – that anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has fallen since Jeremy Corbyn took over as leader. There is more in the Conservative Party, and in the UK as a whole.

Ah, but the Campaign Against Antisemitism has lots of Conservative supporters, hasn’t it? In fact, considering how partisan the organisation seems to be, it is amazing it still has charity status. Perhaps the Charity Commission can explain whether or why this organisation is getting preferential treatment?

In defiance of the facts, Mr Falter said, according to the Mirror: “Under Jeremy Corbyn, Labour has become a safe haven for racists.” Where’s his evidence?

“He is at home amongst them, having spent his political career seeking out and giving succour to Holocaust deniers, genocidal anti-Semitic terrorist groups and a litany of Jew-haters.” Jeremy Corbyn? A man who has fought racism of all kinds throughout his life?

“Labour must lead by example and show that Jeremy Corbyn is bound by the same rules as Leader as he was as a backbencher, by investigating the disciplinary complaint we have filed against him for bringing the party into disrepute.”

In fact I agree with part of that last comment. This Writer has filed complaints against MPs Wes Streeting and Anna Turley, who commented publicly and inappropriately on my own case; John Mann, who referred to my case in newspaper reports (again inappropriately); and John Woodcock, who referred to the left-wing organisation Jewdas in an anti-Semitic way. The first three complaints were summarily dismissed for no good reason; the last is with the Labour Whips’ office. If an ordinary member like myself had been accused, no doubt a swift suspension would have followed. But this is the party in which everybody is supposedly equal.

I’m sure Mr Falter would agree that these cases need to be investigated as well – even though all those about whom I complained support his point of view.

No?

Whyever not?

It will be interesting to see how many people do turn up.

Let’s hope it sends a message that Campaign Against Antisemitism – and its hysterical chairperson – needs to hear.

Hundreds of protesters are set to demonstrate outside Labour headquarters on Sunday against what they say is the party’s failure to tackle anti-Semitism.

Activists will call on Labour’s hierarchy to “hold Jeremy Corbyn to account” amid renewed claims he is not doing enough to root out anti-Jewish hate in its ranks.

The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, which is organising tomorrow’s rally, is angry its complaint about Mr Corbyn to Labour’s new general secretary, Jennie Formby, was dismissed.
