Labour Adviser ‘Likes’ Jew-Bashing

Meet Tess Lanning, Labour Business Policy Adviser since January last year. Tess’ vast realm of expertise is not limited to the world of business; it seems she is also an expert on international relations. Among her Facebook ‘likes’ is the friendly page “The Palestine you need to know”, which offers delightful pearls of wisdom on the Israel-Palestine conflict including how “Zionist Jews beg for money”, “own the media” and why “Israel will surely be eliminated”. Guido doubts a boycott is the business policy advice Ed looking for…

    i’m no fan of some of the things Israel does, but to conflate it with that shite, is well, like the Tabloids to do Muslims every day.

    she probably liked the page when it posted something pro-palestine some time ago

    i like how the piece ‘accidentally’ conflates ‘liking’ the page with explicitly ‘liking’ the anti-semitic posts on it that may not have appeared on it at the time she liked it

    did you ask her? or have any evidence that she did? doesn’t look like it. usual tory press office blog shite

    House of Lords Watch says:

    The point is being made is that the referendum bill is redundant for many reasons, mainly as it relies on a particular general election outcome and attempts to constrain a future Parliament to do certain things.

    What is being missed.

    A strong turn out for UKIP @ GE, perhaps enough to get a majority and form a government, is all that would be needed in order to get a referendum.

    That would assume that UKIP stay true to their manifesto commitments, for which they have set no precedent not to.

    You Joo-haters make me absolutely sick. If it wasn’t for the Chosen we would would have no payday loan companies, no fixed-odds betting machines, no pawnbrokers, no pornographic magazine industry, no Ecstasy pills, no cash-for-gold, no cheapandnasty clothing chains and supermarkets, no minimum hours work contracts, no cash-for-honours and no Amstrad personal computers.
    There is not enough space to discuss the joys of fractional asset discounting of gold or no-win, no-fee legal services
    Anti-semitism is just bad manners–it is hating the Y!ds more than is absolutely necessary .

    Presumably the 35 million Irish Americans, & million UK British with an Irish connection and the third of Australia ditto – another 7 million – also are an imaginary diaspora???

    Above all the 300 million Americans of the USA – mostly English, German and Italian descent, and the 300 or 400 million Latin Americans of Spanish and Portuguese origin all of whom never paid the Red Indians a brass farthing for their territory, are not liars? and thieves? beggars? and hoarders?

    When are they going to pay reparations? Probably the day after the PA and Hamas leadership apologises for murdering Israeli civilians. Or perhaps the day after they publicly denounce their avowed intention to eliminate the State of Israel and kill all Jews worldwide.

    And one wee point of correction. Israel did not steal any land. It captured land from Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria while fighting a war of defence in 1967 against those Arab countries who sought to destroy it. What’s more, it offered to hand back land in return for peace and security – and these Arab nations rejected it. Eventually Egypt signed a peace treaty and Israel handed back by agreement part of the Sinai Peninsula which it had captured. Jordan followed suit and officially handed security control of the West Bank to Israel with mutually agreed clearly defined territories for the Palestinians and Israelis. The treaties between Israel, Egypt and Jordan – all sovereign nations according to the United Nations – have not been breached by any of the parties involved.

    Check your history before you start parroting Palestinian propaganda.

    David Ben Lyingon&on says:

    Israel’s first and most critical move was a surprise attack on the Egyptian Air Force. Initially, both Egypt and Israel announced that they had been attacked by the other country. [Israel lies here and attacks USS Liberty ]

    Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin acknowledged in a speech in 1982 that its war on Egypt in 1956 was a war of “choice” and that, “In June 1967 we again had a choice. The Egyptian army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.”

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
