Louise Ellman: MP quits Labour over anti-Semitism concerns

While I've no time at all for XR what that tweet fails to mention is that someone in the crowd threw a cup of coffee over the bloke on the train just before he lashed out.
Good job it wasn't a milkshake, otherwise that would have been really offensive/deserved/disgusting/justified**

Not exactly the image the Labour Party are putting over, is it? If you are a Labour Party member and not anti-Semitic, then you had better keep your head down and be quiet or you will lose your membership card!
Discussed at a party meeting last night actually, and afterwards in the pub where (deliberately, as an ARRSE researcher) i made anti Hamas and general anti-terrorism comments, including giving an edited version of my involvement in an op which got a PIRA volunteer jailed.

You'll be disappointed to hear i wasn't thrown out, and even had a pint bought (lime and soda, off the beer) by an old codger with 50+ years in Labour for the latter.

Incidentally, all Conservative party members are homophobic and UKIP is 100% racist.
 
I thought she was a singer;)...just got a bit confused.

Don't know why
I'm survivin' ev'ry lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
My life would end
And it doesn't matter how I cry
My tears, so far, are a waste of time
If I turn away
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

Interesting that you refer to him as a volunteer
 
It's mainly that I suspect. Plus the Red Sea Pedestrians had the temerity to win - three times - and not only that but win to the extent that their Arab & Soviet clients were seriously embarrassed. Not good for their Animal Farm mentality of Soviets good, US bad and then they got a new victim class to support - the Palestinians.
Funniest part being that Palestinians in Jordan, Kuwait and elsewhere get treated like shit - but they don't count, it dosn't suit the narrative. Pals are allowed in Israel I believe and benefit, to some extent, from being in a non Arab society - but that didn't suit the narrative.
Only Israel's treatment of the occupied territories gets the attention and dictates the specific viewpoint.
I can sympathise with the Pals as it was a Palestinian driver that gave me an eye-opener. His take was that people like Friends of Palestine and Corbyns Labour didn't help them one bit and I can see what he meant.

Not only that; the more fundamental point is the manner by which Israel assumed control of territory.
 
Corbyn is doing a great job & at an election would do well - For the Tories, Liberals & everyone else.
Can people really see Corbyn bringing in a 4 day week/re nationalize the railways & pull us out of NATO?
And all while Ms Abbott is a cabinet minister, no wonder spitting image is coming back!

Oh - agreed to a large extent. They displaced a demographic who would happily have displaced them. The fact that some ultra orthodox sects continue to land grab is also pretty sick. However, they have created a State and, I reckon, could actually co exist peacefully (does OK with Jordan)
That ain't going to happen though is it. Partly because of Hama's, Fatah, Hezbollah who maintain the hate to maintain their power.
And useful idiots who are neither Jew or Muslim or even connected to the area.
 
You are either in denial or an apologist.
The subject of the thread says it all - even Goebbels couldn't have succeeded in spinning it any other way.

Are you suggesting those ********* were conscripts?
No I am stating it's interesting, because the only people I have ever heard refer to them as volunteers are those who sympathise/support them. Everyone else calls them terrorists if they aren't using words not allowed in CA.

If Spitting Image does return (are Fluck and Law still around?) it'll be the same content as the 1980's rather than politically balanced or impartial.
Is it just cynical commercialism?
As a commercial enterprise I would expect it to be a winner if it lampooned the moonhowling stupidity of the current Left and SNP and currently XR. They really are comedy gold.
But that's just too edgy, too radical, too cynical. Only the Left are cool to do that - they're anti establishment types.

(what? they ARE 'the establishment' nowadays?)

There are a lot of folk missing a trick if you ask me.
 
The coffe came from a non recyclable cup and had DAIRY in it!

What was he supposed to do under provocation like that?
Faint and fall onto the live rail ?

And what is wrong with having a dog in the fight?
I can remember the TV showing the Syrians, Jordanians and Egyptians showing off their massive USSR supplied armies and airforces and boasting about how they were going to destroy Israel and kill all the Jews.
We then heard how the UN peace monitors were ordered to leave (what good they would have done anyway) and waited for the end.
Then we discovered a new term, Pre emptive strike, and cheered our heads off.
