Unite Threaten to Sue Jewish Member Who Raised Concerns

Just when you would have thought that the left would be trying to rebuild bridges with the Jewish community, Unite have responded to a member’s legitimate concerns about anti-semitism by threatening to sue the Jewish complainant, David Levene. Unite officially are warning “be advised that legal advice is now being sought in relation to this public accusation levelled at our general secretary”. If Unite’s Andrew Murray really goes down this route they are crazy…

Corbyn’s Home Pranked By Jewish Activists

A small group of Jewish activists have installed a sign on Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington home this morning, in their words to “highlight the threat that he poses to the British Jewish community.”

Ouch…

READ: Ian Austin’s Lawyers Accuse Labour of ‘Disgraceful’ Attempt to ‘Silence’ Him

Almost three weeks after being placed under investigation by the Labour Party for rowing with Ian Lavery about anti-Semitism, Ian Austin has still not been given any further details of the allegations against him. Last week Austin’s lawyers wrote to Labour General Secretary Jennie Formby:

“This process has been a farce and a disgrace. It has plainly been designed to silence our client for his legitimate, honestly-held criticisms of Mr Corbyn’s failure to address the scourge of antisemitism in the Labour Party.”

His lawyers add that “the Labour Party has failed to observe the most rudimentary principles of natural justice, due process and transparency” and accuse the party of “prejudging the complaints”. Austin is yet to receive a response from Formby. After the climbdown over Margaret Hodge last night, looks like another one could be on the way…

Labour National Policy Forum Member on Watson’s “Jewish Donors”

This is a new Facebook post this morning from George McManus, a Momentum-backed member of Labour’s National Policy Forum:

Corbyn has admitted Labour have been too slow to deal with anti-Semites. Will they take action against McManus today?

UPDATE: He has now been suspended.

“All You Needed Was a Shower”: Corbynistas Send Sick Racist Abuse on #ResignWatson

Here is a sample of what appears on the #ResignWatson hashtag being used by Corbyn supporters to target Labour’s deputy leader. One anonymous account told a Jewish former Labour member: “All you needed was a shower”.

Hundreds of Corbynistas, including the prominent pro-Corbyn account ‘The Awakend’, said Watson was in the pay of Israel:

This guy was going particularly hard on the Israel conspiracy theories:

A cesspit of racism and abuse… what is Corbyn gonna do about it?

Labour Councillor: Jewish Tories Behind Rabbis’ Letter

Labour councillor Mike Pevitt reckons allegations of Anti-Semitism in his party are plot by Jewish Tory party members. In a tweet referring to the letter signed by dozens of rabbis criticising Labour over anti-Semitism, Cllr Pevitt wrote“Labour get lead in polls and Tories instruct their Jewish members to write in”.

In a further tweet, Cllr Pevitt suggested that the Anti-Semitsm “debate” was a Tory plan.

This is the second lunatic councillor Guido has found today, after this morning’s “anti-Semitism is an MI5 Tory plot nutter. Are Labour even bothering to suspend these people any more, or have they just given up?

Labour Councillor: Anti-Semitism is ‘MI5 Tory Plot’

Meet Dave Oldfield, Labour councillor in North Lincolnshire. Cllr Oldfield thinks the Labour anti-Semitism scandal “must be a MI5 Tory government plot to cause havoc in our party” because he has “never come across it anywhere”. Last night he shared a post saying he will no longer be reading anything about anti-Semitism because it is a “politically motivated attack by the political establishment”.

Where do Labour find these nutters to put into public office?

Willsman Doorstepped By TalkRadio

Scandal-hit Pete Willsman refuses to answer questions from TalkRadio’s Ross Kempsell. On the run…

Latest Cadwalladr Conspiracy: Bots Behind Labour Anti-Semitism

Observer rent-a-conspiracy writer Carole Cadwalladr has stuck her foot in it yet again by incredibly suggesting that Anti-Semistism in the Labour Party is the product of paid Tory trolls and her favourite bogeymen Cambridge Analytica.

She approvingly quote tweeted a conspiracy thread suggesting that Brandon Lewis has hired “a team of Tory trolls” and that recently suspended Labour members like Damien Enticott were just ‘hacked’.

This thread was written by a Labour supporter who is backing Pete Willsman for Labour NEC, a figure even too toxic for the likes of Owen Jones and Matt Zarb-Cousin.

Another brilliant piece of codswallop from Carole.

UPDATE: Carole has deleted her tweet and posted this apology…

“Man. What times. I’ve deleted this tweet asking if there was disinfo afoot…because there’s been a pile-on saying the tweet about disinfo is itself disinfo. Which it may be? I honestly don’t know. Yikes. Sorry. I’m keeping out of this one…”

Two Questions For Labour to Answer on Pete Willsman

The Board of Deputies has two questions for Labour on the Pete Willsman scandal:

Both Corbyn and Formby were present.

The Jewish Labour Movement have resubmitted their complaint to the Labour Party, meaning Jennie Formby now has a second chance to get it right, get rid of Willsman and admit she screwed up. Not a great look at all if Corbyn and Formby sat through Willsman’s rant about Jews, said and did nothing to oppose him, and then Formby failed to take any action…

UPDATE: Guido is told Jennie Formby wrote to Pete Willsman to remind him of the high standard of behaviour expected from labour members and warned him of possible disciplinary action if he were to repeat his behaviour.

Labour Suspends Yet Another Councillor Over Anti-Semitism

Labour today suspended councillor Damien Enticott over social media posts claiming Jewish people “drink blood and suck baby’s dick”, that Jewish people are “murdering bastards” who “should be gassed”, and that “Hitler would have a solution to the Israel problem”. Enticott’s defence is that he was hacked. Repeatedly. Over the course of several years. And he didn’t notice until now.

Enticott’s Facebook profile is littered with revolting posts. None of his Labour colleagues he was friends with spoke out. Days since last Labour anti-Semitic incident? Zero.

Billy Bragg: Jews “Have Work to Do” to Rebuild Trust With Labour

Top Corbynista Billy Bragg has said British Jews “have work to do” to rebuild trust with the Labour Party, accusing Jews of “pouring petrol on the fire”, claiming “they make things difficult” and insisting “it takes two to tango”. The lefty relic sent a series of tweets late last night lambasting the joint front page from three Jewish newspapers, and British Jews generally. Bragg began by arguing Corbyn’s Labour isn’t as bad as Austria and accusing the Jewish newspapers of creating a “febrile atmosphere”.

When challenged, Bragg accused the Jewish community of “pouring petrol on the fire” and claiming that Jews “keep upping the ante”.

Asked if he thinks British Jews “have work to do here”, Bragg replied: “I do yeah. Instead they make things difficult.”

He concluded by apportioning blame to British Jews for Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal, telling his followers “it takes two to tango”.

If Bragg is a Labour member surely he’s gotta go?

Jewish Papers Run Joint Front Page Condemning Labour Anti-Semitism

Total insanity from the Labour leadership to choose this hill to die on. Why on earth would they not just accept the full definition, with examples, and make this story go away? Madness.

McDonnell: Labour is Anti-Racist and Anti-Semitic

John McDonnell’s Today programme interview was going so well, and then he stumbled on the crucial line:

“Let me put this message out to anyone. We are a party that is anti-racist and anti-Semitic. Sorry, we are against anti-Semitism.”

So close.

Starmer Challenged By His CLP on Anti-Semitism Definition

Keir Starmer has been challenged by his local Constituency Labour Party after he called on the NEC to adopt the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. On Marr two weeks back, Starmer broke from the rest of the Labour leadership and criticised the Labour Party’s failure to adopt the full definition with examples. He said:

“Councils, institutions across the country have accepted the full definition. I think that’s the right position to be in. I would urge everybody within the Labour party to listen to the voices that have come out in recent days and get to a position where we are supporting the full definition – I think it’s really important – including the examples.”

His local party do not agree. They have tabled a motion at a meeting today welcoming the NEC definition opposed by their own MP:

A direct test of Starmer’s authority in his own constituency…

Long-Bailey: Labour Have Lost the Faith of Jewish Community

Labour to “Take Action” Against Jewish MP Who Called Out Jez

Following last night’s Commons bust-up between Margaret Hodge and Jeremy Corbyn, in which she called him “an anti-Semite and a racist” and said “You have proved you don’t want people like me in the party”, Labour have announced they will be taking action… against Hodge. They say her behaviour was “clearly unacceptable”Disciplining a Jewish MP for calling out anti-Semitism… great look.

Why Won’t Corbyn Adopt Internationally Accepted Anti-Semitism Definition?

Get the feeling this would be a much bigger story without the Tory Brexit mess…

Chris Williamson Tries to Stop Jewish Labour MPs’ Anti-Semitism Motion

At last night’s PLP meeting, Labour MPs passed a motion calling on the party to adopt the full International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism. Before the vote, Chris Williamson raised a point of order attempting to stop two Jewish Labour MPs from moving their motion, to the fury of his colleagues. Peak Chris Williamson.

Meanwhile away from the meeting, 68 rabbis took the unprecedented step of signing a letter calling on Labour to adopt the full IHRA definition. In an extraordinary intervention from a broad spectrum across the Jewish community, they wrote:

“antisemitism within sections of the Labour party has become so severe and widespread that we must speak out with one Jewish voice. The Labour party’s leadership has chosen to ignore those who understand antisemitism the best, the Jewish community. By claiming to know what’s good for our community, the Labour party’s leadership have chosen to act in the most insulting and arrogant way.”

Still Labour moderates do nothing about this other than send a few tweets. Once again the Tory shambles letting Labour get away with this…
