It seems the UK’s Equalities watchdog is a racist organisation. How can we believe its report on Labour?

A common tactic among right-wingers, when a document is about to be published  or a claim made that attacks them, is to undermine the validity of the issuer of that document in some way beforehand. We’ve seen that happen many times over the last few years, haven’t we? Often the critical claims have been proved untrue later. Consider all the attacks on Jeremy Corbyn. Now, with the Equality and Human Rights Commission soon to release its report on alleged anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, that organisation is being buried under…

I was in Bosnia in the 1990s. Boris Johnson’s comment about Muslims there is an outrage

I don’t care if he wrote it 23 years ago – Boris Johnson should have been apologising to Bosnian Muslims ever since. Writing about the Srebrenica massacre, which happened 25 years ago today (July 11), Johnson stated in 1997: “They weren’t exactly angels, these Muslims.” It’s yet another example of England’s Shame being unable to hold his tongue, therefore proving his imbecility to the world. Let’s go over the details for those who may not be aware of them: a quarter of a century ago, Serbs led by Ratko Mladic…

Equalities watchdog undermines itself by refusing to examine Tory Islamophobia

It won’t matter what the Equality and Human Rights Commission has to say about Labour and anti-Semitism now. It is clear that the organisation is not fit for purpose as, despite having “equality” as part of its title, it is incapable even of treating the UK’s two main political parties equally. Boris Johnson’s behaviour alone provides a prima facie case for investigating Islamophobia in the Conservative Party. If the EHRC can’t see that, then no decision it makes about the Labour Party can have any weight at all. I recommend that…

Will Johnson really have the guts to resign? It could land him with a criminal record…

Current speculation that Boris Johnson may resign as prime minister could be more than a little premature as his position as prime minister may be all that’s keeping him from a criminal conviction. BoJob was rightly pulled up short during Prime Minister’s Questions last week, when Sikh MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi took him to task over his 2018 Daily Telegraph column comparing Muslim women with “bank robbers” and “letterboxes”. He said: “For those of us who from a young age have had to endure and face up to being called names such as…

Boris Johnson prompted a surge in racist and sexist attacks. He has to go

Evidence from the monitoring group Tell Mama shows that Boris Johnson is a sexist and a racist who promotes sectarian violence against people of other religions. This is the man who is trying to take the UK out of the European Union in such a way that he will be able to strip rights from particular sections of society and persecute as he pleases. We know he is capable of it because we have witnessed the persecution of the sick and disabled, with thousands of people having their benefits withdrawn…

BBC displays Islamophobia in report of attack on Muslims

Police presence: A police car outside the Islamic centre.Isn’t it incredibly hypocritical that an incident in which a Muslim crashes a car into pedestrians outside Parliament is an act of Islamic terrorism, but the same organisation can’t bring itself to label one in which a driver crashes a car into pedestrians outside a Muslim centre – shouting Islamophobic slogans – as an act of anti-Islamic terrorism. What gives, BBC? You reported that the police were treating it as a hate crime. Explain why you didn’t report it as a terrorist attack.…

Islamophobic crime is on the rise – because Tories support it? [WARNING: VIOLENT/DISTRESSING VIDEO]

The manufactured anti-Semitism row in the Labour Party continues to shield Conservatives from justifiable criticism of their own Islamophobia. Consider this incident, reported on Twitter but not (to the best of my knowledge) in the Tory-supporting press. https://twitter.com/TheFieldMuslim/status/1039288979642822656 Sickening. Mrs Mike asked where the parents of the perpetrators were and why they weren’t around to stop this attack. Answer: I don’t know. Perhaps they are Conservatives who support Islamophobic violence. The backlash has been predictable. Aleesha, who tweets on politics and Muslim issues, makes the obvious connection between incitement to…

Johnson left in the shade as satirist finally delivers a funny joke about burqas

Boris Johnson take note: This is how you satirise attitudes to burqas: (From the Rochdale Herald) A new experimental initiative has seen numerous British Muslim women swap their traditional full face veils for an outfit made popular by Top Gear’s “The Stig.” The aim of the trial is to make both Muslim women and xenophobic man-babies feel more safe and comfortable going about their lives in public. So far the results have been positive. An anonymous test group of women in dangerous no-go-zone Luton reported dramatic changes to the way they…

The berk and the burqa (or Boris Johnson strikes again)

At long last, Boris Johnson’s racism is being addressed – and at just the wrong moment for the Conservative Party. The Tories have been quiet for a week, allowing their poodles in the mass media to feast on the Labour “anti-Semitism” row – and it seems likely Theresa May was hoping none of her MPs would do anything stupid enough to raise a comparison. And then Mr Johnson opened his mouth, said Muslim women in burqas resemble letterboxes and bank robbers, and reopened the Tory “Islamophobia” row. Tory chairman Brandon…

Sick of Labour anti-Semitism? Let’s talk about Tory Islamophobia instead

After a week in which she desperately tried to steer the public discourse away from the racism in her own policies, it must have been disheartening for Theresa May to hear a former chair of the Conservative Party saying the following to Robert Peston on his Sunday morning show: https://twitter.com/alexnunns/status/988037816469815296 Considering the way Parliament hosted a debate – in fact, more like an institutionalised slagging-off of Jeremy Corbyn – over the allegations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, at least one response was going to be obvious: Will there be…
