Peace and Justice Project update: fighting for the right to protest – and for security WITHOUT war

Positive change: Jeremy Corbyn’s Peace and Justice Project is working to improve the lives of people in the UK and across the world. Isn’t that better than Boris Johnson’s determination to crush anybody who disagrees with him, and to launch pointless wars abroad?

Jeremy Corbyn’s Peace and Justice Project has had a busy month after the Johnson Tory government put forward plans to curb your right to protest and to escalate involvement in pointless wars across the world.

The attack on your right to protest is now well-documented; Boris Johnson and cronies like Priti Patel want to arrest you if you “annoy” them with protests against their increasingly unfair, fascist new laws.

And the plan to spend billions on new nuclear arms and become involved in more foreign wars over lengthier periods of time has also been well-reported.

Here’s Jeremy Corbyn to outline what the Peace and Justice Project has been doing about it – and on all the other issues it is taking forward:

This is worthwhile politics – actually working to make the UK, and the wider world, a better place in which to live.

It is sad that the UK’s system of government has now become so corrupt that the only way of achieving positive goals is as part of a campaigning organisation – but that is the situation that the last 42 years of neoliberal politics has created.

We can either work within that situation or give up and accept slavery to the likes of Johnson, or Keir Starmer, or the next would-be dictator.

If you want to be part of the movement for change, details of how to join the Peace and Justice Project are in the video.

Motormouth Nandy shouldn’t be a Labour MP. She accuses Corbyn, but SHE is the genuine anti-Semite

Open mouth, insert feet: it seems Lisa Nandy can’t open her mouth without saying something stupid – and she spends a lot of time with her mouth open, looking stupid.

What an ignorant thing for a Labour front-bencher to say.

Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy has told right-wing talk radio station LBC that Jeremy Corbyn should not be re-admitted to the Parliamentary Labour Party until he apologises for hurt he has caused to the Jewish community.

He already has:

But he shouldn’t have done it then and he has no need to do it now.

Nandy, on the other hand, has no reason to be anywhere near the Labour Party; she disgraces it by her presence.

Remember when she described anti-Semitism as “a particular kind of racism, that punches up instead of punching down”?

Labour recorded multiple complaints against Nandy for that howler – not only from Jews who rightly regarded it as anti-Semitic (separating Jews from everybody else), but also from BAME communities who rightly regarded her as putting them beneath the rest of us.

StarmerLabour quietly swept these complaints under the carpet and let racist anti-Semite Nandy stay in her frontbench position. How hypocritical.

Remember when she supported a plan for a new system to investigate anti-Semitism allegations against Labour members, that was actually illegal?

She wanted to share information on disciplinary cases with other organisations – including the media – but as a data controller, Labour is under an obligation to keep data on its members confidential.

Remember when she advocated the use of force to prevent Scotland from gaining independence from the Union?

She infamously said that the UK should “look to Catalonia” for lessons on how to defeat Scottish nationalism.

She was referring to the Spanish government’s use of force to try to stop a disputed independence referendum in Catalonia, in 2017.

She has no moral authority to pronounce any kind of judgement on Jeremy Corbyn.

He is a far better Labour MP than she will ever be – even when she sits on the Labour benches and he has been banished from them.

Starmer aide who tried to shame Corbyn over Covid jab is shamed instead

Laughter is the best response: Jeremy Corbyn’s supporters have ridiculed latest – Labour – attempt to shame him.

The stupidity of StarmerLabour is overtaking that of the Tories, it seems.

In the latest bid to undermine former – and still much more popular – Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, an aide of Keir Starmer named Sharon Hodgson has demanded that he reveal whether he has had a Covid-19 vaccination injection yet.

She said it is not a private matter. Strong words from a party whose leaders can’t tell us what their policies are because they are “confidential”!

Corbyn is 71 years old, so has been eligible for a vaccine since January.

But his office has failed to respond to requests from HuffPost UK asking if he had had the vaccine, although his parliamentary office told the Guido Fawkes website this week that Corbyn “doesn’t normally comment on personal health matters”.

Are we making it mandatory, now, for everybody to announce whether they’ve had the jab or not?

Won’t this provoke more division, with those who have refused it suffering prejudice from those who disagree with their views? Or, indeed, with anti-vaxxers attacking those who’ve had it?

Why would StarmerLabour want to use the vaccine to cause dissent?

Fortunately this attack on Starmer’s forerunner seems doomed to die in mockery and ridicule.

See – and enjoy it – for yourself:

You may enjoy coming up with your own.

Perhaps this is the most biting response of all:

Non-Labour ‘Labour Against Anti-Semitism’ boss in anti-Semitic attack on former Children’s Laureate

Anti-Semitic: and this tweet was published by a director of Labour Against Anti-Semitism (who isn’t a member of the Labour Party). Credibility blown?

When it all falls apart for so-called anti-Semitism crusaders, it seems to fall apart badly.

Peter Newbon is a director of Labour Against Anti-Semitism (LAAS), despite not being a member of the Labour Party (it would be interesting to find out if he has any other political affiliations).

Today, May 19, he tweeted an image of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn reading Jewish former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt to a group of children, with the image altered so the book appears to be the anti-Semitic text The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The caption was: “‘Oh no! A J-… er, I mean a ZIONIST! A nasty, horrible Zionist! We can’t go over him, we can’t go under him, we’ll have to make an effigy…'”

See for yourself:

This is clearly an anti-Semitic message, linking all Jewish people with a racist ideology in what appears to be an attempt to “normalise” Zionism along the lines of Robert Jenrick’s “Anti-Zionism is antisemitism” nonsense.

Now, serious questions are being asked about Labour Against Anti-Semitism, and Newbon’s university job also appears to be at risk.

Questions are even being asked of the Labour Party, whose leaders have signalled support for LAAS on many occasions:

Let’s all keep a close eye on this one.

I think some very nasty people have a lot of explaining to do.

‘I didn’t call Corbyn a Nazi’ says Riley. Do you believe her?

Coming up roses: Jeremy Corbyn kept smiling both before and after the ‘egg’ attack at the Muslim Welfare Centre in Finsbury Park on March 3, 2019.

What a pleasure to be writing about a court case involving Rachel Riley, that doesn’t involve me as well!

The TV parlour game-player was in the High Court today, giving evidence in her libel case against Laura Murray, a former aide of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The details of the case are laid out clearly in the Yahoo News report, here:

Ms Murray had posted [a] tweet on March 3, 2019, after an egg was thrown at Mr Corbyn, who was then the Labour leader, by a Brexit supporter when he was visiting Finsbury Park Mosque, in north London.

She had been responding to a tweet posted by Ms Riley, Mr Justice Nicklin was told.

Ms Riley had initially retweeted a January 2019 tweet by Guardian columnist Owen Jones, about an attack on former British National Party leader Nick Griffin, in which Mr Jones had said: “I think sound life advice is, if you don’t want eggs thrown at you, don’t be a Nazi.”

She had added “Good advice”, with emojis of a red rose and an egg.

Later, Ms Murray had tweeted: “Today Jeremy Corbyn went to his local mosque for Visit My Mosque Day, and was attacked by a Brexiteer.

“Rachel Riley tweets that Corbyn deserves to be violently attacked because he is a Nazi.

“This woman is as dangerous as she is stupid. Nobody should engage with her. Ever.”

The article continues:

Ms Riley was questioned by Mr McCormick.

He suggested that Ms Riley’s tweet had generated a Twitter debate around whether or not she had called Mr Corbyn a Nazi.

Ms Riley accepted that she regarded Mr Corbyn as “anti-Semitic”.

But she said she had not called Mr Corbyn a Nazi and added: “I didn’t use the word Nazi.”

In fact, Mr Justice Nicklin had already made a ruling on the meaning of Ms Murray’s words that did not include any claim that Riley had called Corbyn a Nazi.

That being said, when he reviews the case, he will see that on the day Mr Corbyn was attacked with an egg, Riley published a tweet saying people who don’t want to be attacked with eggs should not be Nazis, adding the remark “Good advice”.

Riley might have meant any number of things when she published her tweet, and she can say whatever she likes about it now. We have no way of knowing whether any of her claims about it now are accurate. That’s why the judge has to rely on the tweet as published, in the context in which it was published at the time.

His job will be to decide, not whether Riley wanted to indicate that Corbyn is a Nazi, but whether a right-thinking member of the public was likely to draw that conclusion from what she had published.

Please don’t respond to this article with your own interpretation of the tweet’s meaning (at least, not until after the judge returns his verdict).

But feel free to consider for yourself what you think Riley’s tweet meant.

The case is continuing throughout the week and should be extremely interesting to all of us.

Starmer is letting Tories order him around. Is this an unexpected twist in the lobbying scandal?

Keir Starmer: the face of shame, again.

We all know the Board of Deputies of British Jews is dominated by Conservatives, don’t we?

The use of anti-Semitism accusations may therefore be seen as a way for Tories to exert unwarranted influence over the Labour Party.

Now it seems they are extending that influence – by which I mean the following:

Labour leader Keir Starmer let a Tory-run organisation order him to reject an invitation to an interfaith event.

The Board of Deputies told Starmer to avoid the virtual Iftar event because one of its organisers is a member of Cage, an international advocacy organisation with a focus on Muslim detainees and communities impacted by the so-called War on Terror.

Apparently this person had shared a demand for a boycott of Israeli dates.

Is it true? Were there good reasons for it if it was? These questions are relevant but don’t really affect the core issue.

What matters is that Starmer let a Tory group order him around and that will never be acceptable in a Labour Party representative.

And at a time when he is trying to make mud stick on Boris Johnson and the Tories for letting former MPs and ministers, party donors and friends influence them, it is shocking that Starmer would show himself to be so easily-led by a Tory-led group.

The Twitterati have been having a field day:

This can only do further harm to Starmer’s chances in the local elections…

… but right-wing Labour is spinning like a top in its efforts to make him look supportable.

Labour is plummeting in the polls, with Starmer’s leadership the clearest reason, but that didn’t stop Peter – sorry, Lord – Mandelson taking a pop at former leader Jeremy Corbyn. He told Huffington Post‘s Paul Waugh:

“The memory of Jeremy Corbyn is still strong on the doorsteps amongst Labour voters here, it’s still coming up and I’m afraid we have still got some way to go before we rebuild the confidence and trust that we just threw away.”

No, Peter. It’s your boy Starmer who’s throwing away confidence and trust.

Meanwhile, the object of the Right’s continued enmity has managed to remain astonishingly equivocal about Starmer – but still couldn’t manage to say anything nice about him when questioned by LBC’s Iain Dale:

It is a class act – especially in contrast to that of Starmerites like Mandelson.

They fling dirt at Corbyn thick and fast – while he merely comments from experience about what a Labour leader should do.

One thing a Labour leader should never do is be seen to allow Tories to dictate his schedule to him.

Viral image of soup kitchen queue has an important hidden message for voters

I’ve only made the message clear.

The image above (sans speech bubble), showing 220 people queueing in sub-zero temperatures to enter a soup kitchen in Glasgow, has gone viral – and has been shared thousands of times.

Many have called it out as an indictment against the Tory government that has failed to tackle  worsening poverty crisis.

But here’s the hidden point:

Posting on Facebook Graeme Weir compared it to “some Eastern European Country that’s been decimated by years of communist rule”.

Funny that – considering so many UK voters were practically ordered not to vote for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party in December 2019, for fear that he would create a Communist dystopia.

It seems that, in fact, Boris Johnson created that nightmare future himself – and actually put voters off supporting the man who could have prevented it.

Jeremy Corbyn updates us on his Peace & Justice Project – and how you can get involved

It has been a couple of weeks since Jeremy Corbyn, Noam Chomsky, Yanis Varoufakis and others launched the Peace & Justice Project, so Mr Corbyn has kindly made a video to let us all know about developments since then.

It’s self-explanatory so take a look:

The project relies on people power – on members of the public getting involved and contributing to the process.

You can do this by visiting the Peace & Justice Project website and joining one (or several) of the campaigns.

Court says Corbyn can’t have Labour documents – it doesn’t mean his case is over!

Have the news media given up on reporting court proceedings properly?

I lost when Rachel Riley applied to strike out my defence against her libel case and everybody thought it meant I had lost the whole case. I haven’t.

Now Jeremy Corbyn has lost a court application to make the Labour Party disclose documents that he said would show that Labour had gone back on an agreement to fully reinstate his suspended membership as a result of “political interference” and some media types are acting as though he has lost his case too. He hasn’t either!

According to The Independent, Labour has attacked Corbyn for wasting “the court’s time and our members’ money”. Strangely, Riley’s supporters have been trying to stop people from supporting my CrowdJustice site with similar claims.

It is understood that Labour will also seek to recover its court costs from Mr Corbyn personally.

Judge Lisa Sullivan made it clear that the case could continue without Labour documents being passed to Corbyn: “In terms of Mr Corbyn’s ability to properly plead his case, I do not accept that he would suffer significant prejudice without pre-action disclosure.”

So it’s clear the case will continue.

But look at The Independent‘s headline: Labour attacks Jeremy Corbyn for ‘wasting time and money’ after court defeat over suspension from party. Doesn’t that make it seem that he lost?

So, just on an anecdotal level, it seems clear that certain elements in the press have lost their impartiality altogether when it comes to reporting the courts.

Or perhaps, going back to a theme we’ve discussed recently, they’re just prejudiced when it comes to Corbyn and his supporters.
