See #VoxPolitical’s Mike talking about #antisemitism and the false claims made about it [VIDEO]

This Writer was on TV last night – albeit TV on the internet.

I was on a programme set up to discuss the new documentary Reaching Over The Noise: Is Labour Really Antisemitic? that was made to counter the false claims made in a BBC Panorama programme a little more than two years ago (at the time of writing).

If you didn’t see it, here it is:

I have to say I was very impressed with the easy wit of Jason Cridland, of Dorset Eye. I wish I could think up genuinely funny – yet pertinent – comments on the spur of the moment like that.

I do tend to take issue with one of the things he said, though. On the definition of anti-Semitism, he put forward the view that people with power and influence define the terms of debate. I think he was referring to the reliance on the IHRA working definition of A/S that is often used to demonise the innocent.

There is certainly truth in that, but I tend to think that ordinary people, looking for an accurate definition, are more likely to go to a source they know they can trust – like a dictionary.

And if you want to see the film we were discussing, here it is:

The DWP doesn’t want you to see this disability deaths documentary. Please tune in

Make a note in your diary: Channel 4, Friday, December 17 (tomorrow), 7.30pm, Dispatches: The Truth About Disability Benefits.

The Department for Work and Pensions doesn’t want anybody to see it, apparently.

It’s a documentary investigating the unexpected deaths of disabled benefits claimants, including those who have taken their own lives.

It’s been scheduled at short notice – but the DWP will be taking very careful note of viewing figures for this programme, hoping that it attracts a smaller audience than usual, as this can then be shown as proof that there really isn’t any great public interest in the lives and deaths of benefits claimants.

As the website Benefits and Work states,

If that’s the case, they can carry on denying there’s a problem and keep on covering up the suffering inflicted on disabled claimants by a heartless system.

But the more people who watch the documentary, the harder it will be for the department to brush aside its findings.

And the more likely that others will begin investigating the secrecy surrounding almost everything the DWP does.

Long-term readers of This Site will know that I spent more than two years fighting for the DWP to release up-to-date death statistics on people claiming the sickness benefit Employment and Support Allowance (and its forerunners).

The Information Commissioner’s Office eventually forced the government department to release its figures in August 2015 – but it could only provide those for people who had died within two weeks of having their benefits cancelled as civil servants do not follow up on what happens to people beyond that time.

This means that a lot of information about the fate of claimants whose benefits have been cancelled is hidden from the general public – but the little I was able to secure was damning, as it showed that thousands of people had died for unexplained reasons within the three years covered by my Freedom of Information request.

I would have pursued the matter further but we all know what happened next: I reported on false claims of anti-Semitism against members of the Labour Party and was then accused of anti-Semitism myself. I’ve spent the last five years fighting those falsehoods in one form or another.

So I’m glad that John Pring of the Disability News Service has been pushing matters forward.

It seems he was the one who contacted TV production companies around three years ago (2018?) calling for a documentary to be made, and the Dispatches film will apparently tell the stories of the DWP’s disabled victims.

Benefits and Work quotes Mr Pring as saying:

“Those stories are shocking. What is almost as shocking is that we are still waiting for an in-depth, independent inquiry into DWP’s repeated failures over the last decade – and even earlier than that – to learn from its mistakes and make its assessment system safe. 

“Countless disabled people have died because of that failure. We need an inquiry now.”

The documentary is filmed and presented by disabled film-maker Richard Butchins, who has had personal experience of the DWP’s ways.

Relatives of deceased claimants will be speaking out on television for the first time, to explain how the system contributed to the deaths of their loved ones.

And there is testimony from a DWP whistleblower who describes a dismissive and mocking attitude toward claimants among staff at the department.

Allow me to reiterate: the Tory government wants this show to get low viewing figures so it can put out propaganda saying the British public don’t care if a few (hundred)(thousand) cripples croak it after being denied the payments they need to live.

So we need as many people to be told about it as possible.

If you can tell your family and friends, please do. Let’s make sure this is something the Tories can’t lie about.

At last, it’s out! Independent documentary debunks Panorama over Labour anti-Semitism

It’s taken years but at last a group of independent media outlets – and yes, This Site had a hand in it – have released a documentary debunking claims by the BBC’s Panorama that the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn was anti-Semitic.

And it is still topical, three years after the Panorama attack piece was aired.

In the Panorama programme, interviewees alleged that The Labour Party is institutionally antisemitic. After Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, strenuously denied the claims, these people sued – and new leader Keir Starmer paid them a six-figure sum, despite having been told the party could win if it mounted a defence.

If you watch the new documentary, Reaching Over The Noise: Is Labour Really Antisemitic, you may easily come to the conclusion that Starmer’s advisers were right – and Starmer was wrong.

This Site covered the Panorama attack piece in depth at the time it was released – in a series of six articles:

This one…

This…

This…

This…

And this.

The new documentary takes a hard look at the allegations in Panorama, examines whether they were really justified, and comes up with an honest answer.

It balances the Panorama piece by interviewing British Jews who approved of Jeremy Corbyn and his leadership of the Labour Party – and revealing the abuse they have suffered as a result.

It examines the individuals whose testimony formed the backbone of Panorama – were they entirely honest or did they have a shared interest in putting forward a particular interpretation of events?

And it asks whether the narrative put forward by the BBC documentary was the whole story – or missed out vital information.

The verdict? Well…

Watch the documentary and you’ll find out.

BBC documentary asks: Who cashed in on Covid?

Don’t expect too much from this: it’s a Panorama documentary from the BBC and, judging by Is Labour Antisemitic that was produced under the same banner, is likely to be biased towards the Tories and full of falsehoods.

However, even the fact that an attempt is being made to bring this to public attention means it has to be worth watching. Right?

According to the BBC’s publicity,

As the government faces mounting criticism that well-connected people made millions out of Britain’s PPE crisis, Panorama investigates who won out.

More than £12 billion was spent in the first six months of the pandemic on contracts to provide personal protective equipment.

Reporter Richard Bilton meets one man who made £40 million on a deal and speaks to others who felt ignored in favour of less-experienced suppliers.

As the government refuses to reveal the full details of all its so-called VIP deals, the programme reveals the high-profile connections to one lucrative contract.

Wow – £40 million on a single deal.

I suspect the conclusion will be one we know already: success depends not on what you know, but who; the Old School Tie opens doors that would otherwise be closed.

Panorama: Cashing in on Covid is broadcast on BBC1 tonight (March 15) at 7.35pm GMT. It will be on BBC iPlayer soon afterwards.

Will Channel 4’s lockdown sex revelations mention these political shaggers?


Every time I write about Tory rules on sex in the Covid-19 lockdown, Google Adsense tries to penalise me for “extreme content”.

I kid you not – twice now I have been forced to demand a review, and twice it has come down in my favour.

I feel like the late, great Peter Cushing, whenever he was asked to justify the latest Hammer horror film. People would say, “Peter! This film is awful! The script is diabolical, the monster is creakier than the script… How can you be involved in something like this?”

And he would respond: “We’ve made another.

Well, here’s another article about lockdown sex – although in my defence, it’s about a TV show that somebody else has made.

According to my brother, the Beast, Channel 4 is getting on the bandwagon and on Friday (June 12) will screen Sex in Lockdown: Keep Shagging and Carry On.

He quotes the show’s blurb as follows: “Anna Richardson delves into the ways sex in Britain has altered since we’ve been in lockdown. People from across the nation talk to her about their experiences as she gets to grips with all things love, sex and romance in these unique times, from a separated couple who created a replica penis, to a singleton breaking the rules to have sex outdoors.

Well, there’s a title to thwack you between the eyes. Most of us are coping with social distancing, but how does sexual distancing work in these restrictive times, if you don’t actually live with your lover? If you crave an outlet for your desires, but Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and Grindr have ground to a halt? If you’re just craving a bit of romance?

“Anna Richardson, the writer, host of C4’s dating show Naked Attraction and partner of Sue Perkins, grapples with this topic – virtually, one hopes – and talks to Brits up and down the land, from a separated couple who created a replica penis to a singleton who flouted the rules to revel in sex outdoors.”

Personally, I’m not up for being thwacked between the eyes – certainly not with a separated couple’s replica penis. But I wonder whether any of the celebrity shaggers mentioned on This Site over the last few weeks will get a look-in.

Will boffin Neil Ferguson be mentioned, who resigned from a scientific advisory role with the government after he broke lockdown to boff his married lover?

Will questions be asked about Labour MP Rosie Duffield, who quit as a Labour whip to disport herself with a married man?

Will the show unearth other high-profile shagamuffins?

Will I get another rap on the knuckles from Adsense?

Yes, that seems most likely.

I may as well announce my soon-to-be-published porno bodice ripping classic Legover Crisis: Why I Must Spend More Time With My Family by The Hon. Willie Poker MP.

Why is the BBC contributing to anti-black racism?

Propaganda: it seems people have moved on from avoiding mainstream fake news providers like the BBC, and are now physically attacking reporters in the street.

Let’s get this right.

In the week that a Downing Street advisor resigned because it had been revealed that he is a white supremacist racist who considers black people to have lower IQs than whites…

… and prime minister Boris Johnson’s spokespeople refused to deny that he holds the same opinions…

… because they can’t; he has already apologised for them…

… the BBC – which is being attacked by the Conservatives – inexplicably advertises for white people to take part in a documentary with the premise that they are the ones facing discrimination:

To say that this is tone-deafness by BBC commissioners would be an insult to understatement.

Meanwhile, the Corporation’s own reporters are being attacked in the streets.

This is what happens when you allow your national purveyor of independent news to be overrun by supporters of a ruling party that is not only racist but, at its heart, fascist.

Baddiel’s Holocaust denial doco has questionable timing and a dodgy presenter

Baddiel: how can we accept pronunciations on racism from the man who subjected black footballer Jason Lee to racist mockery as a “pineapple head” back in the 1990s?

Holocaust denial was one of the accusations against me when the Labour Party accused This Writer of anti-Semitism.

And I have clashed with David Baddiel on Twitter. He came across as a man with an agenda who was not interested in reasoned arguments.

So it is hard to adequately describe my disappointment when I heard that he had made a documentary on Holocaust denial for the BBC.

I have long since been exonerated of the Holocaust denial charge – by press regulator IPSO – and am currently engaged in a court battle with Labour over its use of false information to expel me from membership.

But Labour is currently embroiled in a leadership election and the vexed issue of alleged anti-Semitism in the party has again reared its ugly head.

In this context, don’t you find the timing of a documentary on the subject questionable?

And as for the presenter – well, my brother Beastrabban raises a very interesting point about his own past, which is arguably racist itself:

Baddiel used to appear in blackface wearing a pineapple and dreadlocks in order to mock the appearance of the Black footballer, Jason Lee, who was then playing for Nottingham Forest. He was taking the mick out of Lee’s hairstyle, which was a mixture of the corn rows and dreads. But this led to ‘pineapple head’ being used as a racist insult against Blacks with a similar hairstyle.

Maybe Baddiel would say it isn’t his fault that others picked up his characterisation and used it in a racist way – but the mere use of blackface is taken to be racist these days; and would racists have picked up on his character if they didn’t see racism in it already?

Note that the programme where this appeared

The Beast also points out that Baddiel’s arguments about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party aren’t very strong. Consider this attack on Jeremy Corbyn:

He also wrote a piece in the Guardian claiming that Corbyn was a terrible anti-Semite because he pronounced Jeffrey Epstein’s name ‘Epshtein’. This was supposed to be an attempt to make the deceased magnate and paedophile less English or, rather, American, by stressing his non-English-speaking origins.

It’s a rubbish argument. Unless you’re aware that Epstein, or others with the same name, are Jewish and pronounce it differently, the name looks German. And Corbyn gave it the German pronunciation. There’s nothing inherently racist in that. Consider the number of gentile Brits with foreign names, like the Eurosceptic politico Mark Francois. Presumably his surname is given the French pronunciation, but this is not taken to mean that Francois is less British.

So the documentary – Confronting Holocaust Denial with David Baddiel, February 17, 9pm, BBC2 – has questionable timing, a questionable presenter with a questionable past, and may expose its audience to questionable ideas.

Any questions?

Viewers of BBC Universal Credit documentary deride it as ‘systematic genocide’

Faceless: Universal Credit is an attempt to avoid treating benefit claimants as people. It is easier to deprive you of everything if they don’t have to think of you as a person.

The latest Tory propaganda effort to promote Universal Credit is not going well, it seems, with viewers labelling the policy “systematic genocide”.

This Site has already commented on the fact that employees at Liverpool’s Toxteth Job Centre didn’t want to appear on the show, because they did not want to be associated with government propaganda.

Now it seems viewers of the programme have rejected claims that Universal Credit helps anybody claiming it – voicing particular horror at the story of a 61-year-old woman who was forced to work three jobs, just to make ends meet.

61-year-old claimant Sue was shown struggling to survive on egg and baked beans after losing her job and being told her benefits would be reduced if she didn’t get 35 hours’ work a week.

@PurpleDon1973 said: “That poor woman. Susan, made redundant, 61 years old. 61 and expected to take on two or three jobs. Landed a job for 10 hours a week and jobcentre still on her back. 61 years old. Ffs.”

Another [viewer] described Universal Credit as “systematic genocide”.

Ant C said there are times he’s needed to claim Universal Credit “but was made to feel so ashamed I quickly withdrew my application”.

“No compassion whatsoever!” he said.

Some viewers were annoyed at the upbeat solutions to the case studies, suggesting the overall programme is actually more about government “propaganda” than showing the brutal realities at their worst.

JJ Wyatt said: “This show smacks of propaganda, the Universal Credit system is deliberately designed to punish and coerce.”

Liverpool Job Centre staff boycotted BBC Universal Credit doco as they didn’t want to be connected with propaganda

The second part of a BBC documentary series on Universal Credit has been aired – notably without contributions from people at one Job Centre.

People working at Toxteth Job Centre, in Liverpool, refused to take part – according to the Liverpool Echo.

The reason was that they did not want to be publicly associated with a documentary that puts forward the Tory government’s propaganda:

It was reported last year that there were problems in the filming of the Liverpool episode of the documentary because staff at the Job Centre didn’t want to be involved.

As The Guardian first reporteda memo from the Public and Commercial Services Union– that represents Job Centre staff – said: “It is our understanding that there have been no volunteers to take part in the filming.”

The internal note explained that staff were unhappy about being identified on screen.

With the volume of hardship and problems associated with Universal Credit in the city of Liverpool – it is thought staff didn’t want to be publicly associated with a documentary that the government is pushing forward.

The Tory government, and the Department for Work and Pensions, have been trying to make Universal Credit look better with propaganda campaigns.

A series of advertorials in newspapers last year fell foul of the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

It ruled the campaign in the Metro “exaggerated and misleading” and stated that there was “simply no evidence to back the Department for Work & Pensions’ (DWP’s) claims about people being better off on Universal Credit”.

Bigots try to stop ‘anti-Semitism’ documentary filming – so it’s now at a secret location [STRONG LANGUAGE]

First – an apology. This Writer misconstrued a press release about the new documentary Reaching over the noise – Is Labour really Anti-Semitic?

I mistakenly believed the documentary was all but finished and people were being invited to a screening, at which more filming would take place.

In fact, people were being invited to come and take part in the documentary, offering their own views on the so-called Labour anti-Semitism crisis.

Next – som facts: Indy Media Productions, the crew behind the film, has been making it in response to the BBC Panorama documentary Is Labour Antisemitic? that was riddled with falsehoods and gave an inaccurate impression of the situation in the Labour Party

Anyone with left-wing political loyalties is welcome to attend the event at the Britons Protection in Manchester.

The meeting will be captured on film and used in the final scene of the documentary (and also in the trailer).

Tickets are available from this site. The 50p price is only so organisers can gauge the numbers attending.

“There is an election taking place and the antisemitism narrative is being used against us,” said a spokesperson for the production company.

“It is vital that during this election, as Labour supporters and Labour members, we hit these allegations head on and state exactly where we stand.

“We are not racists. We are not anti-Semites. We are just people who care deeply about injustice, equality, poverty and homelessness.

“If we don’t speak out and state exactly what we stand for, others will do it for us and what they say will not be the truth.

“We are hoping to capture footage of as many speakers as possible but we may also ask questions of some that attend to get their opinions on the allegations of institutional anti-Semitism made against Labour.

“This is your opportunity to have your voice. It is time for those on the left to speak out and not be silent. There is a lot at stake at this election and a lot to lose.”

Finally – the unpleasantness: Almost immediately after my original article went up, managers of the original venue were subjected to abuse from the kind of bigots responsible for the false “anti-Semitism” narrative.

Here’s an example of the kind of message they received (now edited to stop Facebook shocking readers when I try to share it):

 

Yeah.

Hard to believe these people are claiming the moral high ground, isn’t it?

They never succeed in stopping the facts from getting out; they just show themselves up for what they are.
