Comrade Corbyn to the fore - whither (or wither) the Labour Party?

It was part rhetorical psrt statement but never mind that will have flown right by you. You are going off on this tangent just to get away from your airey fairy dismissal of the anti-Semitism apparently rife in the upper levels of the Labour Party, even though they deny it.

Anyway, enough of this distracting from the poor stance by Labour, at least they are admitting there is a problem, well almost admit!

Labour to 'get it right' on anti-Semitism
 
1.There is something the Labour Party have forgotten. That block of Muslim votes is doubling every ten years. (That's from UK government statistics) So what are the likes of Kinnock/Blair/Corbyn's decendants going to do? That Sharia state is a lot closer than anyone appears to comprehend and the aforementioned will have no place in it.
2.Just check out the number of muslim mayors of major cities. Andy Burnham is very much the odd one out. Khan already uses the expression "my city" when referring to London, there are two ways of interpreting that. Think about that very carefully. Your children's future is a muslim Britain.
3.The Jews do have ultimately a homeland, rightly or wrongly, hard fought for. They will fight to the death to survive and sustain their country. Our Jewish people can find a refuge there. I hope they do not have to. France is already seeing an exodus. This is a sad state of affairs.
4.Millenials have no comprehension of the gathering storm clouds. When they chant "Jeremy Corbyn" their innocent naivity sends a chill down my spine. Depressingly, the other bunch are almost as bad. The changes I have seen in society during the past forty years do not encourage optimism.

Here endeth the lesson.
 
The sad bit is this will be something for our children to cope with not us, they will be the ones to suffer ultimately

I'm just happy to live in the arrse end of nowhere, and can safely watch the world burn and say I told you so

I've not dismissed antisemitism.

What he actually wrote was "your airey fairy dismissal of the anti-Semitism apparently rife in the upper levels of the Labour Party". So you are correct in that you did not dismiss anti-Semitism per se, but you appear to be suggesting that it is a problem in wider society which is affecting all organisations equally, and is not something which is disproportionately affecting Labour, which I believe is the position of most, and which is the point of AY's post, that you were dismissive of the levels of anti-Semitism within Labour.

No. Never said or implied anything of the kind. Twisting the meaning of my words.

Stated multiple times that Labour need to stamp out antisemitism.

Crystal clear from my previous posts.

Are you arguing that antisemitism isn't a problem in wider society, whether that be of the same or different magnitude?

Actually it was far from crystal - hence my earlier posts.
 
In the most respectful way, you often seem to fail to understand what has been posted
He wasn't the only one who got the impression that you were downplaying Labour's anti-Semitism. You might think that your posts are crystal clear, but if those reading them interpret the message in a way you didn't intend, is that their fault, or yours?

Even the most obtuse person couldn't suggest that they were able to read that into what I wrote. Trying to use such a specious argument is classic deflection.

That is exactly what you and wild yin appear to be doing to my original post.

Is the next step to paint me as antisemitic?
 
Journalist, lifetime supporter and member of the Labour party, quits the party membership over antisemitism in the Labour party, plastering it over the Times:
I cannot tolerate antisemitism so I’m leaving Labour
Within hours, Corbynista's attack her by claiming she never was a member of the party in her twitter feed, seeking to discredit her and deflect her action.

Then Wes Streeting Labour MP for Ilford North chips in with his criticism of Labours policy towards Antisemitism.
 
As a floating voter I couldn't comment.
It is the British way, unless we follow our families voting patent people tend to vote for what they think is the least worst option rather than voting for a party

It's just social media that gives the impression that joe public is overly political when they're not

That is not what we are doing, neither is it what we appear to be doing. What AY posted was … "your airey fairy dismissal of the anti-Semitism apparently rife in the upper levels of the Labour Party" which you chose to mean "your airey fairy dismissal of the anti-Semitism apparently rife in the upper levels of the Labour Party". It was a very specific point, which you chose to generalise, probably because you couldn't justify your position, so you tried to turn the argument into something else.

Is the next step to paint me as antisemitic?
No. The next step is to continue to highlight your evasiveness and inability to accept that the fact that the Labour Party is institutionally tolerant of anti-Semitism to the point that its senior members appear to be blind to its presence, a normalisation of deviation.
