Green Parliamentary candidate proves herself better than many in Labour

Jeremy Corbyn: it’s funny how a Green Party candidate can apologise for falsely accusing him of anti-Semitism, but people in the Labour Party – including the leader who succeeded Corbyn – cannot.

A Green Party candidate has shown herself to be better than many members of Labour – by admitting she was wrong and apologising.

Take a look at the following:

So the claim was that Green Party members called Jeremy Corbyn an anti-Semite and have yet to apologise. Which Green Party members?

Turns out one had been discovered earlier:

But here’s a thing. Having discovered that her words from 2020 had been resurrected and thrown at her political party, Chesca Walton published a statement. This one:

She passed her comment in anger, at a time when she was not a Green Party member. She accepted that her words were ill-judged and wholeheartedly apologised.

And she encouraged anybody who thinks they can do better to put themselves forward as electoral candidates too – for an excellent reason.

She’s not quite right in what she says. Heather Mendick points out: “It is good to see someone in politics saying: I’m sorry, I was wrong. It shows openness and learning. But for the record, Jeremy Corbyn never shared antisemitic content, he’s an awesome constituency MP, and you will have to look far and wide to find a better politician.”

The reason I mention all this is simple.

Jeremy Corbyn was attacked with false accusations of anti-Semitism by people within his own party – Labour. Eventually – in 2020 – he was ousted from the Parliamentary Labour Party and made to sit in the House of Commons as an Independent.

All the accusations against Mr Corbyn have – as Ms Walton said – been disproved.

How many current Labour Party members – including MPs – have apologised in as full and frank a way as she did? When can we expect an apology from current leader Keir Starmer?

If Mr Corbyn doesn’t get one, then it’s another – big – reason for voters to abandon lying Labour and turn to someone else.

To the Green Party, maybe.

And in Hackney South, where the sitting MP is Meg Hillier, who once betrayed benefit claimants by abstaining on the Tories plan to introduce the benefit cap (which is now well-established), no doubt among other crimes against the electorate – and where Ms Walton is the Green Party?

Well, we’ll see, shall we?

#ICJ4Israel: Jeremy Corbyn to join South Africa’s delegation accusing Israel of genocide

Corbyn and Israel: some might say his decision to join the South African delegation accusing that country of genocide is courageous, considering the years in which he was falsely accused of anti-Semitism.

Jeremy Corbyn is to join the South African government’s delegation accusing Israel of genocide at the International Court of Justice tomorrow (January 11).

According to AP News,

South Africa’s Justice Ministry said Corbyn was one of a number of “senior political figures from progressive political parties and movements across the globe” who will join the South African delegation at the Hague in the Netherlands for two days of preliminary hearings which begin on Thursday.

South Africa brought the case against Israel last month, accusing it of intending “to destroy Palestinians in Gaza,” and asked the U.N.’s top court to order Israel to halt its attacks. Israel rejected South Africa’s allegations of genocide “with disgust” and said it will defend itself at the court.

Corbyn was the only one of those foreign political figures in its delegation named by the South African government.

He will go to The Hague fresh from shaming the UK’s Tory government in the House of Commons earlier this week:

Of course, the UK’s Tory government refused to support South Africa.

Despite the concerns mentioned by Foreign Secretary David Cameron (“Lord”!), Rishi Sunak’s gang of bandits fully support the genocide – probably because they think it will generate money for them. Sadly, Keir Starmer’s Labour Party also supports it, probably for the same reason.

The hearings begin at 9am (UK time), and you can watch them using the link below:

Ben Elton: absolutely right on Rishi Sunak. Right on Corbyn – and Israel – too?

Ben Elton: praised for his opinion of Rishi Sunak, panned over Jeremy Corbyn. But he was right about Israel years ago. What a shame people didn’t listen.

There’s a lot of chatter on the social media about writer and stand-up comic Ben Elton, after he trashed Rishi Sunak’s interview on Laura Kuenssberg’s Sunday morning TV show.

For This Writer, Sunak’s big mistake was trying to brush the Post Office scandal under the carpet, after public feeling was stirred up by the excellent Mr Bates vs the Post Office drama on ITV last week.

He said it was something that had happened during the 1990s – which was a lie. The first wrongful prosecution of a sub-postmaster whose takings were fiddled by the Horizon computer system happened in 2001, and the last was in 2015. That makes it as much a problem for the current government as for those of any other under whose rule it took place.

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

His attitude towards the scandal was mirrored in his attitude to other issues Kuenssberg raised, and that is what led Elton to make his widely-praised response later in the same show:

Here’s where it gets interesting: some social media commentators have resurrected a Jewish Chronicle interview with Elton from (we think) 2020, in which he criticised former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for failing to tackle the anti-Semitism issue that had dogged his party since 2016. But again – it seems to me – Elton was right.

He said: “He [Mr Corbyn] needed to get a grip. But either because he is incapable or because, incorrectly in my view, he did not want to inflame a part of his base that conflates Israeli foreign policy with all Jews… For whatever reason, he has allowed what is clearly a fringe problem to become a cancerous poison.”

My reading is that Elton was saying Mr Corbyn was misled by his advisors into trying to appease a group of radical Zionists who insisted that criticism of Israeli government policy was the same as anti-Semitism and that this meant Labour was riddled with anti-Semites – thereby smearing members of good conscience who were simply voicing accurate criticisms of the Israeli government.

He clearly stated: “In the Labour Party I don’t believe there’s as much [anti-Semitism] as we fear there is.”

This reading of his words is supported by his comments elsewhere in the interview about the Israeli government itself:

He stresses his support for Israel’s existence, but adds that, as a people “that have known brutality in an unimaginable scale”, the Israeli government should avoid “using that to justify further brutality.” Instead, they “should say, ‘this is why we won’t do this’.

“At the moment, they are singularly not doing that.”

And now Israel is committing genocide in Gaza – probably the most extreme example possible of them “singularly not doing that”.

So, again, it seems Elton’s opinion was right on the money. And it seems to me that, if people like current Labour leader Keir Starmer had been a little less keen to jump into bed with those radical Zionists who had been so desperate to demonise Mr Corbyn, Israel might have been less enthusiastic about the atrocity it is now committing in front of us.

Today’s Labour Party lie about Jeremy Corbyn

Facepalm: and no wonder, as a current Labour shadow cabinet member repeats, yet again, a hoary old falsehood about Jeremy Corbyn and anti-Semitism.

Your host for today is Kay Burley and your liar is Bridget Phillipson, Labour MP for Houghton and Sunderland South and Shadow Education Secretary:

You’d think that, being the Shadow Secretary of State for Education, she’d be a little more knowledgeable about her subject.

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

We can only conclude that she is deliberately lying.

People of Houghton and Sunderland South: if she’ll lie about this, she’ll lie to you about other subjects, too. Best to get rid of her at the next election.

Protesters have their say on Israel/Palestine – and it’s not what we’ve been told

Groundswell: a through-the-window view of Westminster Bridge during the pro-Palestine demonstration.

Props to Not The Andrew Marr Show for putting together video clips of the enormous march in support of Palestine on Saturday (October 28, 2023), and interview footage of the participants.

This Writer saw a post on the social media in which a commentator suggested that one person calling for – it was either Jihad, or the dissolution of Israel – was speaking for all the other participants in the march; around half a million people.

Of course that person wasn’t speaking for the majority. It was a lone voice that the mass media chose to use, because it tarred everybody there with a socially-unacceptable demand.

Well, here’s the other side.

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

The information supplied to me with the clip stated: “This footage has been put together to show the views of the clear majority of the population who are not being heard on mainstream media.

“Following Israel’s siege and bombardment of Gaza, over half a million people attended a demonstration in London calling for an immediate ceasefire. This was by far the largest demonstration in support of Palestine.

“It features interviews with protestors as well as speakers including Husam Zomlot, Ismail Patel, Mick Lynch, Matt Wrack, Diane Abbott MP, Richard Burgon MP, Bell Ribeiro-Addy MP, Zarah Sultana MP, Apsana Begum MP, John Finucane MP, Dr Hosnieh Djafari-Marbini and Jeremy Corbyn MP.”

It’s fairly long – 34 minutes or so – and I would suggest that it is well worth your time; it shows you the real views of people who have been de-humanised, alienated and ‘othered’ by the right-wing pro-Israel press.

At last a former Labour staffer admits sabotaging Jeremy Corbyn’s election hopes

Blue Labour: Harry Burns and his colleagues acted as agents of the Conservative Party within Jeremy Corbyn’s team, treacherously working to prevent a Labour general election victory in 2017.

Here’s proof, at last, of the right-wing poison that was eating away the heart of the Labour Party while Jeremy Corbyn was trying to form a socialist government that would have saved the UK from the last six years of Tory misrule.

In the video clip below, Harry Burns, former Head of Elections for the Labour Party going into the 2017 general election campaign, admits trying to undermine Mr Corbyn’s chances of winning at every opportunity.

His words prove that right-wingers within the party acted treacherously to prevent the Labour victory that more than half a million party members – and nearly 13 million voters – wanted.

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

In fact, more than 13 million voters might have voted for Mr Corbyn’s party, had they not been discouraged from doing so by traitors like Burns.

In that context, one can sympathise with the following post on ‘X’:

The rot is still deeply-ingrained in Keir Starmer’s Labour Party – as that organisation’s most right-wing leader ever, Starmer has encouraged it.

Nobody who supports traditional Labour values should do anything to help this betrayal of all they hold dear.

Jeremy Corbyn stands against far-right anti-Semitism and more in Europe speech

Jeremy Corbyn: he has the wisdom of experience.

He has the fascists and the racists beaten every time!

Jeremy Corbyn, vilified and excluded from the Parliamentary Labour Party on trumped-up claims about anti-Semitism, attended the Council of Europe last week to speak in a debate on the rise of far-right-wing ideology in European politics.

He knew what he was talking about – he has seen it take over the party that he would have brought to general election victory in 2017, if not for interference from a far-right faction.

And he took the opportunity to reiterate how it is the right – not the left – that uses racism to demonise minorities:

Wise words.

Berger condemns Corbyn call for Israel/Palestine peace as ‘wrong’

Luciana Berger: by saying Jeremy Corbyn’s call for peace is wrong, isn’t she supporting continued bloodshed?

So much about this is shocking, it is hard to know where to start.

Firstly, that Luciana Berger, who left the Labour Party to stand in opposition to it – amid a miasma of scurrilous lies about left-wing anti-Semitism – when Jeremy Corbyn was leader, has been allowed back in – and to speak as a party representative at its annual conference.

Secondly, that Mr Corbyn himself has been excluded from that conference, even though he remains a member of the Labour Party.

And finally, that Berger had the front to come out with the following rant in response to Mr Corbyn’s appeal for a peaceful solution to the conflict that has broken out between Israel and the people of Palestine (it goes beyond Hamas now; civilians have been targeted indiscriminately).

Watch this, and listen to what she said:

Let’s have a reminder of Mr Corbyn’s words:

So it’s wrong to be alarmed at the violence, is it?

It’s wrong to want the combatants to stop shooting and bombing each other, is it?

It’s wrong to want to end the cycle of violence that means this will happen again if the situation between Israel and Palestine continues unchanged, is it?

So what does Ms Berger think is right? Does she welcome the violence? Does she want more of it? Does she want it to continue? To what end?

Why does she take issue with Mr Corbyn over his opinion of Hamas? He didn’t even mention that organisation!

Why does she suggest he should be ashamed for not “calling out what happened for what it is”, when he very clearly did?

Hmm. A former Labour MP who left the party because she strongly opposed Mr Corbyn now attacks his call for peace between Israel and Palestine under false pretences. I’m sure there’s a clear reason for that but I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Perhaps you can work it out?

Warmongers attack Jeremy Corbyn for requesting Israel/Palestine peace

Jeremy Corbyn: he has defended Jewish people throughout his career but is a strong critic of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

This should be a cautionary warning about what the UK’s politicians and media have become.

After Hamas launched its attack on Israel on Saturday (October 7), big-name politicians on both sides of the UK political fence – and across the world – leapt up to voice their support for the apartheid nation that has invaded its neighbour country Palestine, stolen its land, subjugated, tortured and murdered its people. They failed to mention those crucial details. I’ll go into them further in another article.

And (as far as I’m aware) with just one exception, they supported Israel’s military response that targeted civilians, while bemoaning the Hamas attacks for doing the same thing.

Only one elected UK politicians – to my knowledge – called for a peaceful solution:

And he got slated for it:

Mr Tugendhat was referring to an event hosted by Mr Corbyn, to which representatives from Hamas had been invited, when he diplomatically referred to them as “friends”; you don’t get the result you want from other people if you’re antagonistic towards them.

Here’s another one, with a suitable response from a friend of This Site:

Sue Jones hit the nail on the head: “Your alternative is an escalation of war.”

And here’s Tory MP Brendan Clarke-Smith, who provoked a response from This Writer:

I’ve had no response at the time of writing (12.30am, October 9).

The next couple of tweets put the situation in a nutshell:

Worse that all of the above is the fact that a journalist from – I believe – Channel 4 News then pursued Mr Corbyn at the Labour Party Conference and demanded that he explain whether he condemned the actions of Hamas.

He did – very clearly. But he also condemned those of the Israeli military (“ALL attacks are wrong”), and that wasn’t what the reporter wanted to hear. He wanted Mr Corbyn to take a side and, as the commenter below points out, that is stupid and people expecting it are “eejits” (like those mentioned above):

After reading/watching the above, here’s the big question:

What do you think about all this?

Bearing in mind that Israel has an absolute right to exist alongside Palestine, within the borders that were mapped out for it after World War II, and that Palestine also has the same right to existence, and that both nations also have the right to be free of invaders (here’s the UN resolution showing that Palestine has the right to take up arms against such invaders)…

… do you think that our politicians and press have any reason to support Israel against Palestine now?

Or do you think both sides should withdraw and seek a lasting peace, with the possible help of a mediator? Or do you have a better solution to offer?

Kyle spouts common lie about Jeremy Corbyn – and is forced to correct

Jeremy Corbyn: he has a long history of supporting Jewish people. Anybody claiming he is anti-Semitic is either mistaken or outright lying.

This is good work from James Schneider on Jeremy Kyle’s Talk TV show.

Kyle spouted the common lie that Jeremy Corbyn was removed from the Labour Party because he was anti-Semitic and Mr Schneider corrected him. Kyle then had to issue a full clarification – as Mr Schneider had predicted:

It is when broadcasters fail to correct falsehoods – as happens too often on the BBC’s Politics Live, for example – that they stick in the minds of the viewers and affect the way people choose to vote.

The media have a responsibility to be fair and accurate at all times, but in politics this is all-too-often ignored to fuel the personal biases of corporate bosses.

It’s good to be able to highlight a moment of (albeit ill-humoured) responsibility.
