The BBC‘s Victoria Derbyshire programme recently hosted a 15 minute slot in which a couple called Mark Lewis and Mandy Blumenthal were brought on to claim that Labour has produced such an atmosphere of threatening antisemitism in Britain that they are forced to leave for Israel.
What the BBC forgot to mention is that they are leading members of Likud-Herut UK, a far-right Zionist organisation that idolises the murderous leader of the Zionist Irgun terror gang, Menachem Begin. Indeed, Mandy Blumenthal is the National Director of Likud-Herut UK, but was instead introduced as a 'property company director‘, while her partner was described merely as a 'lawyer‘!
While Corbyn was lambasted for possibly having stood near to a grave of someone who knew someone who was involved in the Munich attacks, these people were given a free pass over their adulation of the man who oversaw the 1948 Deir Yassin massacre. Over 100 Palestinian villagers in Deir Yassin were brutally massacred by Begin’s Irgun during the ethnic cleansing of Palestine following the foundation of the State of Israel, during which 700,000 Arabs were driven out of their homeland.
Moreover, Derbyshire never asked her guests if they made these bizarre claims of open antisemitism against Britain‘s most well-known antiracist because they are, in fact, devoted supporters of the State of Israel and the racist Likud party that currently runs it.
Of course, that would be antisemitic. How could you possibly claim that people who describe themselves as 'proud Zionists‘ could have an ulterior motive for attacking Britain‘s most prominent pro-Palestinian figure...?
I am still speechless... seen them a few times before but last night at the Tramshed was off the scale totally. They brought everything from their larger shows into a tiny venue. Confetti storms, neon unicorns, light show, giant balloons and oh the music was amazing!
Just seen a snippet, not sure If I want to laugh or sigh. Obviously funny and a great Chris Morris-esque pisstake of the NRA and those with right wing leanings, but the people he talks to are scary, like the NRA fella who saw no problem with toddlers having guns. What a f*cked up shi t hole of a country.
In 2011 Dominic Raab, new Brexit secretary, said in a policy paper for the rabidly right wing think-tank the Centre For Policy Studies, that holiday pay, the minimum wage and pension contributions for British Workers are all 'straight jackets' for British businesses.
He also said after brexit the UK should Allow Employers to force Employees to work more than 48 hours per week Abolish minimum wage for all under-21's Abolish rights to time off for training, holidays etc Allow Employers to opt out of pension contributions for their Employees Allow Employers to fire workers at will and without recourse to tribunal
Today Boris Johnson has admitted to Andrew Marr that he was paid 160k by a wealthy Russian just for the pleasure of a game of tennis with him. He has no shame whatsoever and if he had any morals or scruples he’d resign just for that.
I cannot remember what thread it was where someone asked this question, but what in your minds eye do you imagine each poster looks like in real life? I know what a good few of you look like as I've met plenty but for those who have never met then fill yer boots!
For example I have this image of GowerJack looking like our fiend ePaul for some reason and Jackfath really does look like Warwick Davies (that avatar jabs away at you).
On this day in 1962, Oswald Mosley and his fascist Blackshirts attempted to hold a meeting in Dalston, in London’s East End but, once again, was forced to call it off after the meeting was attacked by angry locals. Upon his arrival the crowd shouted “Down with Mosley!” and he was promptly beaten down.
Great video here: some comical speeded up 'windmilling' . See if you can spot Lohengrin ;) (only kidding)
Anyone been watching it? Been some decent games so far. The Dutch look quite pacy and skillful and the Germans are well..the Germans. Austria are the surprise package and France look like a team with a weight of expectation on their shoulders. England look in good form and coached by a welshman.
