Corbyn Boycotts Jewish Chronicle

Jeremy Corbyn has run the risk of appearing to shun the Jewish community by pulling out of an interview with the Jewish Chronicle, Britain’s most widely read Jewish newspaper.

Guido understands that Corbyn’s people approached the JC offering them a clear-the-air interview, realising he was not exactly JC readers’ number one choice given his ‘friendship‘ with Hamas and his support for the anti-Semitic Islamist Raed Salah.

The JC agreed, proposing that Corbyn be interviewed by Oliver Kamm, the neo-Con Times journalist, a Labour supporter but a friend of Israel. Upon being told Kamm would conduct the interview, Corbyn’s team informed the JC he was no longer interested in speaking to them.

Next week’s Labour Friends of Israel hustings, which Corbyn is attending and which is co-hosted by the JC, will certainly be punchy…

Quote of the Day

Scruton reflects on Twitter’s vigilantes…

“We in Britain are entering a dangerous social condition in which the direct expression of opinions that conflict – or merely seem to conflict – with a narrow set of orthodoxies is instantly punished by a band of self-appointed vigilantes. We are being cowed into abject conformity around a dubious set of official doctrines and told to adopt a world view that we cannot examine for fear of being publicly humiliated by the censors. This world view might lead to a new and liberated social order; or it might lead to the social and spiritual destruction of our country. How shall we know, if we are too afraid to discuss it?”
