Police refuse to investigate House of Commons racist who targeted sports commentator

Dan O’Hagan: he was targeted with a racist email, sent from the House of Commons.

It seems racists in the House of Commons know they are above the law and are happy to rub the fact in our faces.

Otherwise, you might expect racists in high places to keep their prejudice to themselves at the moment. Clearly that is not the case on the Westminster estate.

Here’s sports commentator Dan O’Hagan, who has worked for the BBC, Eurosport and ESPN:

“You cannot be allowed to belittle, mock and intimidate working class white men, whilst peddling your bourgeoisie [sic], privileged leftism in your highly paid career.

“Football is not for white elites like you. It belongs to working class men of all colours.” [Spot the sexism that’s slipped in there too!]

“Send me your address now and we can discuss this further in person.”

It was signed “David” – although This Writer has a doubt about whether that’s the person’s real name.

What had Mr O’Hagan said to provoke this malicious communication (of which more shortly)? See for yourself:

Information that came with the email showed that it was sent from the House of Commons, hence Mr O’Hagan’s request for the authorities there to locate the person responsible. Here’s the response:

He also contacted the police…

But – how normal – they recoiled from investigating anybody at the House of Commons:

It says – as This Writer pointed out very recently – that people working in our corridors of power are above the laws they make.

Now take a look at the image on the right, in the tweet directly above. Here it is in full:

It is illegal in England and Wales to “send or deliver letters or other articles for the purpose of causing distress or anxiety”, and this also applies to electronic communications.

That’s unless you work in the House of Commons – as a high-ranking politician or someone working for them, of course.

Even Mr O’Hagan has admitted he doubts the identity of the culprit will ever be revealed:

Sadly I’m sure we won’t get a name. The last few months judging the Government record, I have no faith of anything coming from this.

“It might get put on to the most junior person they can blame for it, that’s what might happen. But if there is a name, a big name, I doubt they will admit this I’m afraid.”

The same article quotes the police:

“Officers received a report yesterday (Tuesday 9 June) after a man in his 40s had allegedly received a threatening email.

“Enquiries into the incident found that no criminal offences had been committed and the investigation has therefore been closed.

Apparently they’ve never heard of the Malicious Communications Act, then. 

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

Right’s ‘outrage’ over vexatious claim penalty gives away their real agenda | The SKWAWKBOX

Brace yourself for a wave of false accusations against supporters of Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour Party – most probably of anti-Semitism.

That is the message we are to take from the so-called Red Roar‘s fake outrage at the proposed penalties for vexatious or malicious claims.

It occurs to me that this might be the reason for the cloning of Corbyn-supporting Labour members’ Twitter handles, as explained by Evolve Politics here.

If you are a Labour member, please take note of the advice in the last paragraph by Skwawkbox, below, and act on it.

The ‘Red Roar’, more commonly referred to among Labour members as the ‘Blue Squeak’ has been attempting to whip up outrage about the idea that a penalty for vexatious or malicious claims might be included in Labour’s disciplinary code when Labour’s NEC (National Executive Committee) meets to discuss the party’s Code of Conduct either next month or in October.

That’s right – Labour’s morally-bankrupt right, for which the Squeak is an unprincipled mouthpiece – thinks it’s a bad idea that people should be penalised for making false claims designed either to bog the party down in nonsense or to smear someone with an undeserved and lifelong taint.

The proposal… would address false complaints of any type – and is entirely in line with usual legal principles.

If someone makes a deliberate false accusation of a criminal act, they can be charged and suffer legal penalties. If someone makes a false, damaging statement about someone in the media, they can be penalised for defamation.

So the Squeak getting its knickers in a twist reveals more than they might wish – because only people who want to make false and malicious accusations are likely to worry that there might be a penalty for doing so.

It’s a dead give-away of the plans of the Labour right – of course only false accusations by Labour members would be subject to any penalty in Labour’s rules.

So what can Labour members of good will do? Find the details of your member or union representatives on the NEC and demand that they ensure that a motion for the inclusion of a penalty for vexatious, malicious or abusive complaints is on the agenda for the next NEC meeting – and that they both support it and lobby their colleagues to do the same.

Concern over Labour’s handling of anti-Semitism is justified – because it gives too much credibility to false claims

Protest: Labour Against the Witch-hunt was set up to defend party members – including Jews – who have been falsely accused of anti-Semitism by people and organisations with an agenda.

I remember vividly the moment I lost faith in Labour’s disputes resolution process.

It was during the interview with the party officer who had been assigned to investigate the false charges against me. He had passed me a printout of one of my articles and was asking why I had claimed the Jewish Labour Movement did not represent Jews but only Jewish Zionists.

Scanning the article, I asked, “Have you actually read this?”

“No,” he admitted. He said he had simply been asked to highlight particular sentences and ask particular questions.

That explained a lot – most pertinently the fact that my reasons for making the above-mentioned suggestion were set out, fully, further down the article, and he had not seen them:

Look at the organisation’s own website. It states:

“The Jewish Labour Movement is also affiliated to the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the Zionist Federation of the UK, and organise within the World Zionist Organisation… Our objects: To maintain and promote Labour or Socialist Zionism as the movement for self-determination of the Jewish people within the state of Israel.”

“Zionist”… “Zionist”… “Zionism”… “within the state of Israel”.

It seems clear that “Jewish Labour Movement” is a misnomer. It should be “Zionist Labour Movement”.

It is interesting to note that I stated in the same article, 18 months ago:

The Jewish Labour Movement does not represent Jews who are not Zionists. It persecutes them.

It is an assertion that we have now seen proven in the attacks against Jewdas, a left-wing Jewish organisation that does not support Zionism, and which accurately predicted what would happen:

Our communal leaders will rally together and tell all the Jews who disagree to shut up. And denounce all the Jews who continue to disagree as traitors. And proclaim all the Jews who still disagree are not really Jews. That only the Jews who agree with them are Jews. And, because only the Jews who agree with them are really Jews, the whole community is unanimously united behind the vomit-inducing ‘progressive Zionist consensus.’

The rest of that article is well worth reading as it shows up the lie stated by the Jewish Labour Movement’s Ivor Caplin when he told the Jewish Chronicle this was “an organisation that said ‘f*** you all’ to Jews who have serious and well-founded concerns over antisemitism in the Labour Party”.

Read the article and it becomes clear that the organisations named by Jewdas have invented their concerns, which are frivolous, malicious and false.

That is why I think the concerns raised over leaked documents, apparently casting light on left-wing members of Labour’s National Executive Committee protecting members facing anti-Semitism complaints, are most likely a load of rubbish.

I should know – I’ve been through the wholly unfair and corrupt disputes system and I know it needs the changes that new General Secretary Jennie Formby is to implement.

My opinion is that the leaks are intended to shift public opinion against the changes, in order to continue the current culture which harasses perfectly decent members out of the party.

Look at the cases listed in the Guardian story quoted below. All refer to allegations, taken to the NEC disputes panel in the same way as my own case was.

The accused members would have been interviewed by a party officer, who then prepared a report and passed it to the NEC. The accused member would have been denied any opportunity to check the report for accuracy and it could, therefore, say anything.

The report on me, I understand, was what some people might describe as a “right stitch-up”. As far as I can tell, it listed accusations made against me but did not mention any of the ways I proved these accusations wrong.

Of course, I still haven’t seen the actual report. But I have sent a Subject Access Request to the Labour Party, requiring it to provide all the information on me that it holds. Legally, the party had 40 calendar days to comply, or be in breach of the Data Protection Act – and its time ran out on March 30.

Considering all of the above, I can only conclude that certain people within the Labour movement are playing a dirty game – trying to protect a fatally-flawed system that finds people guilty before trial by doctoring the evidence.

As long as they are allowed to continue with this treachery, Labour will continue to suffer the harmful publicity they are stirring up.

The best bet for the party is to expose these charlatans, their lies and their purpose, and expel them – before they do any more damage.

The depth of the split in the Labour Party’s ruling body over antisemitism and racism has been laid bare in leaked minutes that show fierce disagreements over disciplinary action.

Key supporters of Jeremy Corbyn attempted to block action against Labour members facing complaints, according to the minutes obtained by the Guardian.

Momentum’s founder, Jon Lansman, and the MP Jon Trickett were two prominent figures who voted to limit disciplinary action in the three contentious cases that went to a vote, multiple sources said. Lansman has been outspoken in recent days on the need for Labour to take antisemitism cases in the party seriously.

POLL: What do people REALLY think about the Labour Party anti-Semitism row?

There are so many aspects to this issue, it is becoming hard to discuss meaningfully.

I was going to write an article about the evidence that shows anti-Semitism in the Labour Party has fallen since Jeremy Corbyn became leader, contrasting that with the increase in anti-Semitic behaviour in the UK generally. This has coincided with an increase in Islamophobia and other forms of hate crime (my personal sphere of interest is mistreatment of people with long-term illnesses and disabilities, as I am a carer for Mrs Mike).

I was also going to share my concern that false and malicious claims of anti-Semitism may cause a serious split in the UK’s Jewish community – between those who believe they harm the fight against genuine instances of hatred against Jews and those who say there aren’t any false claims.

But I was in conversation with a friend earlier, and he made a suggestion that I would like to put to the test here. I can’t tell you what it was, as it would prejudice the result.

It’s time for a poll. Please share it with as many friends as possible, to produce the largest possible number of responses.
