No matter how much you try to trivialise, disparage or deny it, the Labour party has a problem with antisemitism. Further I would posit that the new MP for Peterborough deliberately played her racist card to appeal to a discrete demographic. The population of Peterborough is approx, 200.000 of which 11.7% are Moslem(the highest percentage of anywhere in the UK)
To extrapolate the election results to elsewhere in the country without taking into account the demographics (and reluctance to integrate of the appreciable Pakistani population) will lead to surprises come election time. This particular election was fought in a very dirty way.
Labour did not win a massive victory,they swung an election by pandering to a minority, telling them what they wanted to hear.
This is disgraceful hence the reason Labour MPs, quoted above, said what they said. The facts are what they are and cannot be disputed.
Farage standing in front of a poster is small beer in comparison.Throwing your usual insults at me does not change the facts one iota. Playing the racist card to get elected is not something the labour party can be proud of. It will come back to haunt them as more and more people wake up to their machinations.
