Since most Tories voted for Brexit and most Labour supporters voted against it, it,s a bit much for Teribus to say the victory for Brexit was down to Labour voters bolting. If it had gone the other way I suppose he'd blame the minority pf Tories who voted for Remain...

For the record Keith
"Full Definition of anti–Semitism
Hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group
Merriam Dictionary
It does not include criticism of Israeli terrorism
It does not include suggesting that Israeli good are boycotted because of their acts of mass murder and persecution
It does not even include suggesting that Gypsies and Jehovah's witnesses be actively acknowledged and remembered during Holocaust day
It is directly aimed at the denigration and persecution of the Jewish People as a whole.
You wouldn't describe exposing a Jewish pedophile, rapist or mass murderer as "antisemitism" - or would you?
Exposing the Israeli regime for the criminals they are and seeking to make them stop economically is not "antisemitism" - yet the Isreali regime and its supporters claim it is
To the Israeli Justice Minister, all criticism of Israel is Santisemitic - she said so publicly.
The Israeli fanatics are the biggest antisemites around - the describe their own crimes as being committed by the Jewish People and claim to be carrying them out on behalf of the Jewish People - that is antisemitism on a world-wide scale.
They describe Jews, in Israel and outside who criticise their policies as "self-hating Jews" - that is no different that the Nazis who tortured, gassed and shot German opponents of their political policies.
Even an Israeli high ranking General and an ex head of Mossad was brave enough to state that.
The hundreds of Holocaust survivors and their relatives who signed a petition comparing the Israeli regime to the Nazis said the same thing.
Now - what is this Labour Party Antisemitism, if it isn't criticism of Israel?

BBC just 15 hours ago,

"Ms Butler (the new shadow minister for diverse communities,) was later asked on BBC Radio 5 live whether her diverse communities brief included the Jewish community.
She said: "Yes, I hope so," adding: "As you know, it's a new brief, so we are still kind of looking at what it will include in its entirety."
Later she said she would be talking to the Jewish community about their concerns about anti-Semitism in the party.

"But the decision to promote Baroness Chakrabarti, who became a Labour peer shortly after holding an inquiry into anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and concluding that it was "not overrun" by racism, was met with some criticism from Jewish groups.
Board of Deputies Vice President Marie van der Zyl said: "We are disappointed, but sadly unsurprised, that once again Shami Chakrabarti and Jeremy Corbyn have spectacularly undermined her so-called 'independent' report. We hoped her report would be a potent weapon in the fight against anti-Semitism. It now looks increasingly like the whitewash was a job application." "

"Which benefits only the wealthy of Britain and leaves the rest of us in the shit" - Jim Carroll

Is that what you "feel" Jim? Or is that what you "think"? Or is that what you "know"?

Any idea how pensions get paid Jim? Not state pensions but ones companies and their employees pay into. The money goes into a company pension fund and that gets invested, if they didn't do this then the pension scheme is unsustainable. So tell me Jim taking into account the vast sums invested by those pension funds and Insurance Companies who then pay out to the likes of you and me do they fit into your category of "only the wealthy"?

The Government doesn't have to do that because it has the tax payer to rely on and fund them. Besides they can always "rob Peter to pay Paul" if in trouble knowing that they then enact legislation to raise more revenue. Unfortunately their easiest way of doing this is by increasing what they call "indirect" taxation as "direct" taxation in the form of income tax accounts for only a minute percentage of the money Government needs and by increasing "indirect" taxation everybody gets nailed.

"For this, you would happily deprive the unemployed of European jobs."


Actually I don't employ anybody and I am not depriving anybody of anything - happily or otherwise.

But here a couple of "facts" should be tossed into the ring.

More people from the EU work in the UK than UK nationals work in the EU. The figures according to the BBC are as follows:

UK nationals working in the EU = 1.33 million
Nationals from EU living and working in the UK = 2.9 million

That last figure has more than doubled in the last 10 years having gone up from 758,000 in 2006 to 2,900,000 today.

Figures for those from overseas and not from EU countries has remained fairly steady over the same period.

As to depriving the UK's unemployed of jobs in Europe - Sounds very much like you are advocating a "get on your bike" solution there Jim.

"Same therefore applies to British foreign investments then doesn't it Raggy,"
Which benefits only the wealthy of Britain and leaves the rest of us in the shit
Your personal attitude sums up the "ding-ding, I'm on the bus" society we live in perfectly - which is why it needs changing - it is designed for the wealthy at the expense of the less well off.
For this, you would happily deprive the unemployed of European jobs.
Brexit was pushed through on a racist ticket - foreigners taking British jobs - little wonder that it won some of the less caring 'traditional Labour Votes" when you consider what the Right has done to the Labour Party in making it a part of Britain' "me-me-me" society.
As good a reason as any that Labour needs changing and disinfecting - hopefully Corbyn has the conscience and the balls to clean up that particular Augean Stable.

Same therefore applies to British foreign investments then doesn't it Raggy, which are a damned sight more "liquid" than your house in Ireland, which Raggy is only actually worth what someone is prepared to pay you for it if and when you come to sell, having sold, if you want to remain in Ireland, you have to buy into the same market that you sold to.

I've got my chin up too Raggy, my two foreign pensions have increased in value by 25% as well.

Currency fluctuates, but as someone else has pointed out, our growth indicators are all much healthier than those of the Eurozone and no Kevin the £ Sterling will never be a version of anything, because it is an independent currency, we are not shackled to "What is right for Germany, is right for Europe" - The Greeks were and look what happened to them, had they still retained the Drachma their "crisis" would never have been so painful.

Brexit was carried by "Traditional Labour Votes" get used to it, and both sides massaged their figures in presenting their argument to the British electorate, but the arguments put forward by the "leave" campaign were obviously more telling. By the way I voted for membership of the EEC in both 1973 and 1975 foolishly believing we were securing the country's place in a trading partnership. I most certainly would have voted no had it been put to me that 60% of our laws would be dictated to us by an unelected, unaccountable, corrupt and hopelessly inefficient bureaucracy, that for some reason to do with placating the French has to shift offices continually between Strasbourg and Brussels for four days every month at tremendous and totally unnecessary cost. The MEPs have voted to shut it down, but all national governments have to agree, so the French have vetoed the action voted for by the European Parliament.

I can't bear this constant demonisation of Shami Chakrabarti. She has more integrity, proven down the years, in her little finger than Keith, bobad and the whole dishonest and disreputable criticising-Israel-is-automatically-antisemitic brigade rolled up together. I think it's great that a person of her sinew has made a rapid rise in the party. They don't criticise John Major, do they, who was Tory prime minister in no time after doing next to bugger all.   I'm sick of discussing it, frankly, and they've had their moment (months actually) in the sun in that now-extinguished toxic thread that Keith started with malevolent intent. I know it's tempting to keep wading in, but there are plenty of other facets of the Labour Party we could be discussing without constantly being hijacked back to that dead duck.

"Marie van der Zyl"
There goes that Israel/BDS/"Antisemitism link again!!
"Speaking following the event, which was attended by councillors and council chief executives from across the country and political spectrum, van der Zyl said: "Last summer was a real wake up call to the community establishment when it comes to the link between rising antisemitism and delegitimisation of Israel. I'm delighted to be part of the Board at a time when it's repositioning itself as being as the forefront in the fight against BDS on a national and local level. With the best public affairs team in the community and our unique reach with our deputies, we are well placed to ensure that the Jewish community's voice on these crucial issues does not go unheard."
So far, none of these people have described anything that faintly resembles Antisemitism - everything is directly traceable back to Israeli propaganda to stop the Boycott pf Israeli goods.
The latest stunt in suggesting that other victims of the Holcaust should be remembers is "Antisemitic" just about scraped the bottle of the barrel - except for those who support Israel's becoming a fully fledged Apartheid state, of course.
What is this Antisemitism these people are banging on about, and who are the lorra-lorra people who are involved in it?

Too many noises off... While we might not admire Ukip's roughhousing, the reported words of Mr Woolfe "Right you, outside now" might perhaps be a better way of acting out than carrying on in-house.
.................

Whatever Len McCluskey might say, the MPs sponsored by Trades Unions are not "owned" by Trades Unions, and don't follow their orders - as was demonstrated when MPs sponsored by unions backing Jeremy Corbyn (in keeping with the way TU rank and file members voted in the selection ballot) joined in the unsuccessful coup.

British Trades Unions do not have the built in safeguards for their members which German Trades Unions have, thanks to the impact of British Trades Unions on the constitutional rebuilding of Germany. So called "reforms" of the law over the years relating to Trades Unions have overwhelmingly been hostile to unions. Increasingly governments have seen unions as enemies, to be ground down and excluded from any role as partners.

Free vote insisted upon by Wilson in the 1975 first ever UK wide referendum, the constitutional precedent of abandoning collective cabinet responsibility. The referendum was only held because with the free vote in the House of Commons Wilson got it through because of Conservative votes. The vote by the electorate went the way it did was because of repetition of the same lies told in 1973 coupled with scare stories of "doom'n'gloom" that the country would be ruined if we left the EEC that was a lie then as it was a lie when similar predictions were made earlier this year in the run up to the 2016 Referendum.

While Nigel Farage was the man solely responsible for getting the notion of the UK leaving the EU firmly on the agenda. When it came to the run up to the actual referendum itself, neither he nor his Political Party formed any part of the "Official" Leave Campaign.

And just for the record it was 17,410,742 votes cast by the electorate of the United Kingdom that will take us out of the EU. The lies told that brought about that result, for many, were the lies told 43 years previously by Ted Heath in 1973 when he conned the British people into believing that we were becoming members of a "trading organisation", when he knew perfectly well it was not.

Just one of the latest offerings from Jim......to your taste?
Perhaps just one little fleck too many?

"So the immigrants are all potential criminals and the non British employees are all criminals or potential criminals?
***** foreigners eh!!
Has this site finally fallen into the hands of the B.N.P. - it certainly seems like it, reading the racist bile of our three caped crusaders.
The most law-abiding, industrious and ambitious section of the population are the million or so Asians who have moved to Britain to better their lot, more often often than not to be greeted by racist filth such as that being vomited here by our three resident 'Christian humanitarians'"

Strange...I always thought "wildcat strikes" were those which had not been authorised by the appropriate union?
But what do I know, Jim is the real socialist.

Link to above MODEL FOR BRITAIN
As usual, Teribus gives us only half the story - the bit that suits him.
German Trades Unions are part of the decision making of the companies - they are the workers voice in decision making.
British workers have no such voice leaving them with no negotiation power other than the withdrawal of their labour - the end result being a SHARP DECREASE IN LIVING STANDARDS, zero contracts and a widening gap between haves and have-nots.
Whatever the shortcomings, German workers have a built-in say in their lives, we have not.
Workers do not go on strike without thinking hard first - they do so to maintain a living standard and improve bad conditions - the alternative is to do nothing and watch their working lives deteriorate.
I know from experience (twice in 50 years) that taking industial action is frightening and costly.
The two occasions I was involved were both to prevent the conditions I was employed under being worsened - to prevent apprentices being used as tea-boys and then to prevent tradesmen from being used as pack-mules when our employer halted the practice of transporting tools and heavy equipment to our work-sites.
Much thought and debate went into those decisions.
"Wildcat Strikes" is a term invented by the pro-Tory gutter press.

Jim,
David Ben Gurion's ''taken their land' statement, "Benny Morris's' admitting to burying the massacre victim, 'Self-Hating Jews'..... are the ones that spring to mind

You accused me of making up the phrase, "Self-Hating Jews."
That was not true.

Neither of us has read Benny Morris' book, so you are relying on what propagandists have told you.
I should have a copy soon and am confident they lied.

You did completely misrepresent what Ben Gurion said, and "muppets" are amusing puppet characters popular with children, and in no way a term of abuse.

"Ignoramous" or o nothing is also another of your stock phrases.
Then why can't you find a single example? Because I have never used it.

I do not do abuse and name calling.
Why can't you and Steve stop?

Yes isn't it strange when human nature rears it's ugly head, Mr Prescott's clunking fist comes to mind amongst various other examples of pugilism that have occurred in politics.

Mr Mcgrath is correct to emphasis the open hater within the Labour Party at present.

On forum behaviour, the two people making the most noise are almost always the authors of spittle flecked diatribes containing the usual charges of bigotry xenophobia and racism.

Seems to have been established that there was a fight, with the the name of a fellow - Kipper being mentioned as having done the dirty deed, the appropriately named Mike Hookem (you couldn't make it up).
Woolfe is said to have suffered a 'bleed on the brain', so for a Ukip member, not too serious then!
"Anybody out there with any actual experience that's relevant to that? "
I posted this above - but here 'tis again
""German workers are also envied for their corporate power. Their influence within larger companies is guaranteed by their seats on supervisory boards; this gives them a say in the hiring and firing of management and decisions over company strategy. Such a system is lauded by Ed Miliband, who is infatuated with the Rhineland model of consensual capitalism."

"Maybe a separate thread about netiquette"
Totally agree, though it was dealt with pretty well on the Trolls and Flames thread

While those qualities are most openly shown in the case of Ukip, it has to be recognised that comparable levels of fractiousness characterise both the Conservative Party and particularly the Labour Party. There don't appear to be any reports of stand-up fights so far, but plenty of talk of stabs in the back (and indeed front).

Interesting, innit, that the most shambolic political party in the nation, the one that got four million votes, the one whose leader is lauded by at least two or three posters here, is not only the one that plays leadership musical chairs/which manages to beat the shite out of each other/which has a bloke in charge of Wales who publicly hates the guts of its skinny-dipping leader and vice versa, but is also the one that dragged us out of the EU courtesy of a pack of lies. Nice one, brexit voters. You must be so happy that you're so well-led. Such profound and honest arguments from people of such integrity swayed you. Congratulations!

I was addressing my comment to anyone thinking of posting. Including me. If the need to get stuck-in gets too strong, the thing to do is write the post. Then look at it and delete it. Maybe save it to look at later. I doubt very much if you'll find yourself saying "I really wish I had posted that."

Leave the fisticuffs to Ukip...

Interesting to see Theresa May simultaneously channelling Ed Milliband and Margaret Thatcher.

That is true, but Corbyn and Benn are not in this forum and they are not being confronted by Keith A of Hertford and bobad. The other thread was closed, rightly, but these two have migrated here and as such I see little point in going on. They have injected the same poison into this thread as they did in the other one. Of course, we all know the answer. Unfortunately, the answer is not being achieved. Human nature I suppose. They can't debate, they are seriously and incurably bigoted, and I for one can't debate with them.
