I was very impressed by the way Gina Miller, who prevailed against control-freak Theresa May in the Supreme Court, acquitted herself against the bullying Andrew Neil on This Week earlier this evening. She's hardly my kind of leftie but she emerged from his onslaught with smiling and serene dignity and made him look like the bitter, right-wing, bad-tempered buffoon that he truly is. He tried to treat her like a bog-standard party apparatchik and she cut right through it. Good for her, say I.

So, Teribus, you will happily admit that you will tar everyone in a particular Mudcat demographic with the same brush regardless of whether they were involved in whatever you were talking about or not. I suppose that Mudcat is a microcosm of the outside world and you and your ilk will also happily tar whole sections of the human race based on the actions of a few. Thank you for providing further evidence of how your mind works. Not that we really needed any more.

As to spluttering indignation well, no spluttering here, I leave that to you. Yes, maybe indignant could work but you have just confirmed that is was righteously so, well done :-)

"Fortunately Jom that is not how the law works,"
Fortunately my little Seig heiler, that is not how language works
No law-making body has a right to redefine a word that has been long established (despite the fact that it was discriminatery from its inception in 1897 by Germany to apply only to Jews - the term Semites also includes Arabs)
The day lawmakers and politicians have the rightt to re-write the dictionary, that will be the day when fascists such as yourself rule the world.
Words manipulated by self-interested bodies become coparable to the old saying, "a camel is a horse designed by a committee
All immaterial anyway - as Israel chooses to constantly breach a section of the definition, that definition becomes invalid and unworkable, so we fall back on that long established one.
God save us from a world where ethnic censers tell us what words mean

Comparing two different surveys that asked completely different questions Gnome. As usual you are attempting to compare apples to oranges and not getting away with it.

And which 2 different surveys are those then, Teribus? Do any of them say that Labour supporters are more likely to be antisemitic than UKIP supporters for instance?

Keith Dave raised it, for reasons only known to Dave! Again, untrue. My first mention of this was 12 Apr 17 - 10:39 AM Which was in response to a post by Teribus at 08:23AM the same day. Do you think that people cannot read or something? The exchange is even on this page!

Yes, OK, Teribus, not twice as likely but the survey found that one in four (25%) Britons believed that Jews chase money more than other British people, a figure which rose to 39% of those participants who identified themselves as UKIP voters. So, more than 50% more likely. Still a damn site more than anyone else. As I revisited the survey I also spotted the related crime figures. I suggest you have look at them and note the prevalence of right wing fanatics amongst those who have been successfully prosecuted.

I also suggest you look up recently published government paper, produced by a multi party committee, which gives this statement -

This report focuses to some extent on the Labour Party, because it has been the main source of recent allegations of antisemitism associated with political parties. It should be emphasised that the majority of antisemitic abuse and crime has historically been, and continues to be, committed by individuals associated with (or motivated by) far-right wing parties and political activity. Although there is little reliable or representative data
on contemporary sources of antisemitism, CST figures suggest that around three-quarters of all politically-motivated antisemitic incidents come from far-right sources.

However, the fact that incidents of antisemitism—particularly online—have made their way into a major political party is a new and deplorable phenomenon, and one which has not recently affected the mainstream right wing of British politics. It is particularly shocking that it should affect a party whose founding principles are based on equality.


I have not taken to emboldening the passages I wish to draw attention to as some have but I suggest you read and understand the last sentence of the first paragraph.

Well according to all the reports in the press, the complaints made, the resignation of the co-chairman of the OULC, two inquiries commissioned by Labour's NEC, the suspensions - I'd guess quite a few Gnome. It is not my fault, or Keith A's, that you choose to discount and ignore them. You doing that does not alter the fact that they are all there on record.

13. I do not recommend lifetime bans from the Labour Party and recommend time limits on the bringing of disciplinary charges.


The other thing is that no incidence of racist/anti-Semitic behaviour that predates the acceptance of this report can be brought to the attention of Labour's NEC for disciplinary action.

don't agree with your opinions on this Teribus, there are far too many negatives as far as Russia is concerned and far too few positives.
The regime does not require chemicals to win or even shorten the war.

The perception that President Assad authorised the attack has turned world opinion against him.....when even the US were saying that there was no way forward without him.
The attack achieved nothing militarily, eighty women and children killed, the Americans killed over a hundred in Mosel with one drone strike.
"People saw planes dropping bombs containing Sarin gas"....and how did they know the bombs contained Sarin?.....both the regime and Russia have stated that an attack took place(using conventional weapons) and one of these rockets/bombs struck a cache of gas which the Russians say had been deliberately left to provide the conclusion we see before us; the planes would in that case still be seen dropping bombs, but the gas would not have been contained within them.

To say that Assad gassed women and children because he "thought he could get away with it", does not make good military sense and if the Russians were involved they were bound to take into account world opinion in the aftermath.

"Very embarrassing for Russia whose anti-missile Growler system failed to intercept any of the US Tomahawks even although they had prior warning and knew what their target was."

Given the fact Trump's team and the Russians talk and have done for some time it must be possible the Growlers were turned off; Russian bluster since the attack has a hollow ring to it, they just need to be seen to be making some noise.

It would be funny that Boris cancelled his trip to Moscow and then failed to convince the G7 to do anything about Russia if it didn't mean we had such a prat as Foreign Secretary and the Brexiteers had rendered us irrelevant internationally with their nationalistic ranting for the last couple of years.
