Will Zionist Ed Really Stand Up To Union Money Men?

How refreshing of Ed to actually take a stand on an important international issue. He has declared himself a proud Zionist, supporter of Israel and opponent of boycotts:

“I take antisemitism very seriously. Any kind of delegitimisation of Israel is something we should call out for what it is and not tolerate it. I think the boycotts of Israel are totally wrong. We should have no tolerance for boycotts. I would say that to any trade union leaders.”

But is he as good as his word? Last year TUC fat cat Brendan Barber blustered: “there are parts of the settlement trade that consumer pressure simply cannot reach, such as the wholesale and catering industries, and that’s why we need a total ban. The TUC does not support a ban against Israel, but we do support a boycott of goods from Israeli settlements”. Unite has passed a motion to boycott Israel, as has Unison. Will Ed stand up to the bigoted union barons or was yesterday’s speech just weasel words?

      Regarding the Chucka – Will Smith video I have to question why Guido won’t allow comments on it. Has he been visited by the thought police from the “Equality Commission”? We know senior politicians read this site and we also know they are deeply unhappy that some English people realise that what is going on is ethnic cleansing – note violent criminals often escape prison but say something bad about our enrichment and you have a decent chance of doing porridge. To see a video like that which looks like it’s in Africa but to find out the third world has been brought here is depressing. Churchill would be rolling in his grave. And to think my family members went off to die in those damned wars to keep us British and the slimy politicians just gave our freedom and country away.

          Correction. This country is a shithole because of Labour, Liberals and the Tories.

          Three toxic parties, in the pockets of various vested interests both foreign and domestic. All heavily steeped in a cease-pit of corruption, bribery and blackmail.

          If the numerous nonceing allegations are true, then this shower of shite have quite possibly fatally compromised this country.

          You must be a closet racist, fruitcake or loony. Be modernised like me, read the Guardian, support anti-fascist groups and also feminists wanting to overturn human nature. We can be progressive – this is the year 2013, let’s modernise and let sunshine win the day. The enrichment of our society is continuing at 500,000 per year and will continue to rise – this is what those who fought in 1939-45 really wanted – they were fighting a nasty right-wing party in Germany in order that we can have a multiculturalist paradise here at home. I read it in the Guardian and checked with the BBC, so it’s obviously true. Toodle pip, what, what?

    Has the BBC forgotten the twice daily press conferences that the McCann’s and their press officer (provided by Gordon Brown) held for many months at their high profile Portuguese villa? That BBC is not press abuse it is press misuse.
