        cramming ‘jer-em-y-cor-byn’ into the riff from seven nation army wasn’t easy, you know.

    People keep screaming that Corbyn is antisemitic even though he’s very clearly not, and I don’t really get it. To my mind it’s akin to declaring over and over again that Obama wasn’t born in the USA. Like…he attended the Jewdas Passover seder. Whaddya want?!

    1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

      I think it’s that he’s not strong enough on anti-semitism. I don’t think anyone truly believes he’s anti-semitic.
      He really should have stamped this out ages ago — it’s not exactly a great measure of him as a leader.

      1. Bonkers

        Im not seeing anything to label him an anti-semite either. But of course the narrative of the Anti-Defamation League these days is that anyone who criticises Israeli foreign policy is automatically an anti-semite.

        I think its more a case of the right in the UK being so scared of him in power (and of his popularity) that they need to throw any kind of mud at him in the hope it sticks. His election result and the manner of it (when May was supposed to be a shoe in with an increased majority) frightened the bejaysis out of the right wing media and this campaign against him is the best they can come up with.

        Either way I doubt the average UK voter really cares in the same way that the Torygraph and Daily Fail do. It wont matter a jot at the next election.

        Margaret Hodge called him a “a f**king racist antisemite” to his face. Not sure if that qualifies as really thinking he’s a antisemite. Also the Jewish Chronicle, Jewish News and Jewish Telegraph printed the same front page editorial calling him an existential threat to British Jewery. This is an out and out smear campaign against a decent man. They won’t stop until he’s gone.

      The Antisemitic Blackmail… See France Far Left, same thing happened there, or at least they tried it as well.. Its a good all around tactic to bring down political opponents, Hitler, etc…

      1. Jeffrey

        Oh And also, its the old nut of Antisemitism VS anti-Zionist – two totally different things but happily amalgamated for the cause, support Palestine and you get this!

      It’s not just “people”
      It’s the overwhelming majority of Jews in Britain and many Labour MPs including those who have fought racism all their political careers who consider Corbyn to be anti-semitic.
      Some of my Jewish friends are in fear of Corbyn getting into power because of the extreme and sometimes violent nature of the people surrounding him.
      Not that they’ve got anything to worry about – boundary changes happen in the next couple of years that have planned for a very long time and which give the Conservatives a very favourable outcome and that,combined with a new leader by the end of the year,hopefully Boris or the Moggster,will see off any chance the old codger has of becoming PM.

        Moggster implies he wears shades and a leather jacket at all points.

        And you and I both know he does not. I’d call that False Advertising. Tell him not to use it as part if his campaign.

          If you draw eyes and lips on your hands and use voices, like charger does, you have all the friends in the world. White, English ones, of course, none of that foreign muck.

    Jeremy has upset his Zionist overlords. He has not been staying quiet about Israel’s military aggression of late or when the US moved its embassy to Jerusalem. Now every attempt is being made to get rid of the man.
    I don’t particularly like some of the man’s views but I do not doubt his credibility.
    There was a time when anti-Semitism meant someone that blindly hated jews but over the past few decades, it has morphed into a description for someone that the Jewish establishment hates.

      That’s like saying there was a time when racism meant hanging black people from trees, now it just means calling someone a n*****. I’m don’t know for certain if Jeremy Corbyn is an antisemite or not, but you sure as hell are. With bells on.

    Corbyn has too many skeletons in his closet for the British public. IRA sympathiser, Anti-semite, communist. Couldn’t have done more to ensure tory majorities.

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        Yes,that’s right.
        Let’s have the current Irish set-up where all the second-rate politicians are propping each other up.

        1. ReproButina

          Isn’t that what you have? An incompetent, disjointed conservative government propped up by a bunch of medieval religious fanatics.

          1. Ollie Cromwell

            In Ireland they take months to form a coalition by buying up independent politicians with bribes of funding for pet projects in their constituency which means there is no effective opposition to the government of the day.
            Think of the DUP as the Healey-Raes of the North.

          2. ReproButina

            And in the shattered kingdom of Britain when they have no point to make they resort to having a go at the Irish. For all its many faults you don’t see members of the Irish government publicly undermining each other on a daily basis. The Brits can only dream of such stability as they drift aimlessly towards chaos.

          3. Ollie Cromwell

            They don’t undermine each other because they all have their snouts in the trough.
            The Dáil is nothing more than a rubber stamp for whatever Brussels and more specifically Germany and France tell the Irish what to do.
            A collection of grasping,self-aggrandising half-wits put in by boggers who’ll sell their soul for an extra bus service.

          4. ReproButina

            Hahahahah! Struck a nerve did I? Hardly surprising. After all, your empire crumbled as soon as Ireland left and now, with our EU allies, we’ll be watching your economy crumble too.

            Enjoy the food shortages!

          5. Ollie Cromwell

            ” EU allies.” ?
            Man,you really are as dumb as a box of rocks.
            You’ve been had,sucker.

          6. ReproButina

            Says the guy cheerleading the race to become a third world country.

            Your government is so afraid of what will happen if people hear how bad it’s going to get they won’t even release their reports!

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      He was and has been a longtime supporter of the Blanket Protest and Irish Nationalism; one member of his party had intolerance to the Jewish race; the Labour Party supports a left of centre political stance. I know your comment hints to this. He will never be PM but he’s a great Labour leader. I wish we had his like here.

  4. Ollie Cromwell

    And drifting aimlessly towards chaos ?
    Blighty has just posted figures that show exports of UK goods and services rose to a record high of £620.2 billion in the year to March 2018.
    Project Fear me hole.

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        I know,ain’t it great.
        Shame Ireland can’t do anything about its currency – that’s for Angela to decide.
        Suckers.

        1. Brother Barnabas

          hate to break it to you, charger, but sterling’s collapse in value is due to loss of confidence in it – nothing to do with UK government policy

          last implosion came about a few weeks ago when trump expressed doubt about the possibility of a US-UK trade deal

    1. ReproButina

      Rees Mogg said it’ll take 50 years to judge if Sasamach is a success and you’re claiming victory before it even happens.

      Ever heard of Horizon 2020?

    I thought this article from a few months back by Irish journalist Daniel Finn sets out the forces at play in this manufactured crisis very well. He writes about the different components that make up the “Israeli lobby” in British politics and its real value for Britain’s conservative elite. ie “its willingness to serve as a third rail for those who challenge Atlanticist orthodoxy”..”The primary goal of this campaign is to destroy Corbyn altogether; the secondary goal is to deter him from talking about Palestine in terms that will discomfort the Israeli elite”

    1. shitferbrains

      Finn is from New Left Review , a publication run by Richard Seymour ex- Lenins Tomb. His contribution to the debate on Israel/Palestine was to wish that a Jewish journalist would have his throat cut. Finn wrote – or at least published this article before the revelations of Corbyn’s statements on Press TV became common knowledge.

      1. f_lawless

        seems rather hasbara-esque of you! Criticism of Israel – considering its continuing breaches of international law and human rights – does not equate to antisemitism whether its Corbyn speaking on PressTV or anyone else for that matter.
        But thanks for setting me straight on Finn’s contribution to the Israel/Palestine debate. Although, I want to read more about this throat-cutting yarn and nothings coming up in google. You wouldn’t have a link, would you?

    Fortunately Liability Leo is keeping his trap shut for a while.
    Negotiations are between the big boys now,not some country yokel who thinks loud socks make him an international statesman.

    1. ReproButina

      There are no negotiations mushroom boy. The EU are still waiting for the UK to figure out what they actually want. Two years of grandstanding, infighting and u-turns ends up with them being sent back with their tails between their legs by the EU to start again.

      And all because Ireland out-thought and out-planned them. HAHAHAHA!!!
