Ken’s Latest Jewish Rant

Jewish Labour supporters have written to Ed Miliband to express their growing concern about Ken:

“It is worth mentioning that it was made very clear to Ken the mood amongst Jewish Labour Party supporters. Despite his seeming obsession with Israel, which gives some quarters cause for concern, many of us had just about managed to vote for him in 2008. Today, many of us who would otherwise normally vote Labour are finding it harder and harder to consider voting for Ken, despite agreeing with his policies for London.”

A letter which has been leaked to the Jewish Chronicle cites Kens many rants, his dodgy cleric friends and his financial relationship with the Iranian state. Their complaints focus around a meeting with with left-leaning members of the Jewish community that does not seem to have gone very well:

“At various points in the discussion Ken used the words Zionist, Jewish and Israeli, interchangeably, as if they meant the same, and did so in a pejorative manner. These words are not interchangeable and to do so is highly offensive, particularly when repeated over and again as was done.” 

Most damning though is the revelation that Ken declared Jews won’t vote Labour because they are rich:

“Ken toward the end of the meeting stated that he did not expect the Jewish community to vote Labour as votes for the left are inversely proportional to wealth levels, and suggested that as the Jewish community is rich we simply wouldn’t vote for him.”

Given Ken’s tendency to dismiss any attack as a “conspiracy”, he will want to be extremely careful in responding to this one…

        I don’t care about Ken’s response.

        Miliband knows exactly what his response should be, but he doesn’t have the balls or the chutzpah to deliver it.

          I think it’s more a case that Ken is such a C U N T, he can make even Eddy bed hair look quite good when directly compared – a bit like comparing, say Eddy as an irritable cough, and Hunt Livingtwat as West Nile virus, explosive diarrhoea and obsessive trumpet playing combined.

            Labour wanted the moon on a stick, they just wanted millions of mugs to pay for it over and over again. Unfunded spending.

            The much vaunted aircraft carriers you value so highly were never actually intended to do anything but provide lucrative taxpayer funded bribes to Labour constituencies. Bungs for votes. Thats why the contracts contained ruinous cancellation provisions. Thats why they weren’t Nuclear powered so that they could operate steam catapults. No we went with experimental electromagnetic launchers…much more expensive. diesel powered…huge running costs. Very restricting on the aircraft you could deploy ie again more massive cost.
            If the UK REALLY wanted operational aircraft carriers they could have bought off the shelf plans made under licence for the Nimitz class carrier. Taiwan has and they are half the price of the Labour boondoggle.
            It’s a similar story with the new destroyers..off the shelf built here Arleigh Burkes class just as good half the price. Get the picture yet?

            Courtesy of Gordon “Viv Nicholson syndrome” Brown, the UK has the fourth largest military budget in the world.

            We are either doing to much or the forces are really inefficient – I suspect both. Hopefully George Osborne will show Dave and Nick rivers of red ink to keep them out of Syria and Iran and not repeat Blair’s vain glorious campaigns.

            If the Falklands kick off, the Americans will step in and kick Argie butt as we have supported them in the imperialist endeavours.

            Therefore, we do not need all Balls’ bollocks on defence spending.

    Here’s a little extract from a BBC report on the 19th regarding the shooter from Toulouse.

    But why the widely differing choice of targets: soldiers and Jewish children? One theory is that the man is a deranged far-rightwinger. It is noted that the three dead soldiers were of North African origin, and a fourth who was injured is from the French Caribbean.
    The killer has a clear affinity with guns. Could he be a neo-Nazi type – maybe an ex-soldier or a member of the criminal underworld – with a hatred of all minorities, Jews and Muslims?
    Some have gone further – indirectly pointing the finger at President Sarkozy for recently raising sensitive issues such as halal and kosher meat in the run-up to the presidential election. This tactic, they say, gives credibility to the far-right and ‘delegitimises’ the Muslim and Jewish communities.
    The problem with this theory is that it is not yet established that the killer deliberately targeted Muslim soldiers.

    He may have helped Gay and Ethnic rights along the way as his fan club love to point out so freely, but you only have to check the fine print of his comments to see what he really thinks.

    Similarly, he’d court Women bashing terrorists and sympathise with some of the most dangerous Socialist fantasists to get back in power a second time. It’s time he realised he can’t be all things to all people just to get his feet back under the table, and it’s certainly time his supporters put two and two together and realised they’re backing such a shyster.

    This ingrained Labour-spouting duplicity is being unearthed more and more as days go by now they’ve lost their keys to the city and is splitting them down the middle and they’re chasing their tails and they’re hating even more than normal, all the time baffled a they’re ‘the only ones who really care’.

    It’s fucking poetry in motion.

      If ken does get in he will be used a stick to beat the labour party with because the first thing he will do is raise the amount of london taxes that the GLA needs. So when the council tax bills come before the election in London people will see the increase.

      I have always said that people on benefits should be made to pay the full council tax or given the average amount in thier benefit then they would see how much the council actually spends, because at the moment they do not.

        This is a very good point.

        Also, although the idea of raising the personal allowance might initially seem to be a good idea, it’s hardly “sharing the burden” if a few million extra people don’t have to share the burden at all, and these are the very people – as Ken points out – who voted for the Party that shafted the nation’s finances in the first place.

        Without the obligation to pay tax, they will naturally not give a shit how that tax is spent/wasted.

        If anything, they should pay proportionally more tax than anyone else.

    Budget : Whilst both PMQs and budget had few good choice one liners , including sick leave and wallace and gromit . I think it is fair to say that despite all the leaks , it was a diffcult budget before he even stood up , I give him good marks for presence and attitude towards tax evasion , and for at least putting some of his thinking forward (even if I disagree with some of it) in bit more of a chancellor sort of way .
    the 50p rate did give Ed somthing to launch from , although he seemed more angry reactionary and a return to that big vacuum that the PM had observed.
    We perhaps expected some sort of miracle more than the situation allowed , saving £36 bn in interest payments , quietly shoots both eds ability to offer solution that there plan would be better , the harping about growth figs was about as derisiory as I have seen , given most of the western economies cannot even claim 1.5% growth , Obama has blown money for da kids to have pay off , Osbourne is shorting that experiments ,in my view wicked effects for the UK.
    I didnt catch the main figures and dept budgets , which is where my beef is , i perhaps might have left corp tax , although his exception for banks was mood sensative . I would have welcomed a far more determined measure on tax avoidence for corps, but I may have missed some details . I wasnt sure how he felt about UK manufacturing , atrracting investment from international corps is one thing , growing UK companies /supply chain another .

    I am not sure about what long term taking people out of tax signifies , although I can see it is much needed help for low incomes , although ecnomic imbalances have affected recovery I still am unsure if we are devloping the right future , even though it is one for growth .

    Overall not much room , deficet plan on target , still some way off for some families to benefit , considerate that some factors are far from clear , before we can say we are over worst .

    It was the “Ken toward the end of the meeting stated that he did not expect the Jewish community to vote Labour as votes for the left are inversely proportional to wealth levels, and suggested that as the Jewish community is rich we simply wouldn’t vote for him.” statement from the Jewish Chronicle that struck me most. Here we would appear to have a Labour politician stating that their voter base is made up of the poorest in society. Surely this means that Labour needs to create more poor people to maintain its pool of voters? Goes a long way to explaining the actions of the last Labour government.

    At 51 yrs old I feel I am ‘missing something’, lived in a cuckoo clock or something, but I have completely failed to grasp how someone could chase a child into a school, grab them by the hair, and shoot them in the head at point blank range.
    Who instills such hatred into the next generation so it NEVER gets resolved?
    For all Ken’s shouting, and to all those who stupidly call other politicians Nazis, as to belittle what people went through at the hands of the Nazis, are they capable of such hatred or do they just wish to be a part of what keeps it going?
    I just can’t get my head around how someone would go to a cash machine, move someone to one side, and shoot two people….
    Guido I am at a loss…How do we ever change things when politicians keep stoking things up?
    Do Londoners actually listen to Ken and intend to vote for him?
    If so, why would they do that?
    Why would they vote for someone who is happy to see hatred shown to one section of London voter, by another?
    I just don’t get it.
    Thanks for listening.
