Ha Ha ............ like it Dave.

However IF 25% of the population does hold anti-semetic views it doesn't always follow that 25% of Labour voters hold those views.

It could be higher, it could be lower. Unless peoples voting inclination were also be asked we simply don't know, apart from UKip which was stated.

And the Brexit vote was brought home by traditional Labour Party voters voting for the UK to LEAVE.

By the bye on the name thing:

I call JIM - JOM because that is how he in the past has referred to himself. By the way Jim it was Gnome who tried to prove something by introducing Poll statistics in this thread.

I refer to Raggy as Raggy because he seems to get selectively Huffy when certain posters refer to him as such, but is quite OK with others using it.

I refer to Shaw as Shaw as I have nothing but contempt for the man.

I refer to Dave the Gnome as "Gnome" as it saves me from typing "Dave the" everytime I address him - He is rather "Gnomish" though, being short, bald, bespectacled, and rotund.

I must admit that I have enjoyed the holiday and tourist ramblings and the mental images conjured of Jim, Raggy, Shaw and Dave scrabbling about o'er hill and dale bears marked similarities to a mixture of "Last of the Summer Wine" and "Lord of the Rings".

Jum? That only leaves Jam and Jem to choose from!

We should ignore the three idiots in this thread whose agenda is to twist meanings and definitions around in an ideology-led campaign to prove that Labour is somehow the cheerleader for antisemitism in this country. The kindest thing would be to assume that they haven't a clue what antisemitism is (it's a tempting thought as none of them ever tries to think it through for themselves, favouring a definition of very dodgy provenance which has been mindlessly adopted by appeasers of Netanyahu and co). Antisemitism is very easy to spot. It doesn't need complicated definitions full of ifs, buts and other qualifications. Wipe Israel off the map and you're attacking Jews because they are Jews. Accuse Jews of conspiring to control banks and big business etc., antisemitic, no argument. Untrue, so don't say it.

My sister lives three miles away from the Summer Wine locations. I have a photo of me playing the harmonica theme tune outside Sid's café in Holmfirth. You can see Compo inside.

But never mind that. By the way, my last post was sent prematurely and I had more to say but it stands on its own and I can't be arsed. In the seventies I spent three schoolteachers' long holidays in the north-west highlands, namely in Wester Ross and Sutherland. There is nowhere better on God's earth. I climbed Cul Mhor, Cul Beg, Quinag, Ben Loyal, the Five Sisters, the Saddle and more, and we did the notorious Rock Path from Ullapool to Achiltibuie. Mrs Steve joined me (before she was Mrs Steve) in the hot Easter of 1976 and the long, hot summer of that year. What amazing memories. We stayed in youth hostels, our very favourite being Ratagan when John and Sue Fisher were the wardens, and Achmelvich, when Colin Jolly was at the helm - especially Achmelvich.

I could say more and probably will if we get any more moronic antisemitism shite. Innit!

It's appeal was to the people whose lives have been fouled up by the fouled up system Britain now has - that's how populism works
Proof of its bigoted nature lies in the rise in racist incidents follwing the result.
Applying it to 'Labour voters' is just right-wing agenda-driven sloganising.
All shades of politics has been debased and disgraced in Britain - 'lying, self-serving politicians is part of the national; psyche.
You keep throwing up these feeble excuses then thinking up yet more when they crash in flames - a war of attrition, just like WW1 and just as crudely fought.
The fact that you still need your insulting rhetoric to deliver you bon mottes is indicative that you are fully aware of the vacuity of your arguments - it makes you look unpleasant and stupid - like all bullies - it always has.

John, her husband and the then warden of Ratagan hostel, is also an artist. I have two lovely Jan Fisher watercolours on my wall which I bought from her for a few quid in 1976.

Well, if travelogues are now "permissible" my happy hunting ground as a teenager was invariably the Peak District. Train out to Chapel-en-le-Frith or Buxton on a Friday evening, a walk to a YHA, all day Saturday walking and then Sunday walk to a train station and back to Manchester.

1: "It's appeal was to the people whose lives have been fouled up by the fouled up system Britain now has - that's how populism works"

Since 1973 the EU has played a major role in whatever "system Britain now has". How "populism" works Jim, is that a political party jumps on the bandwagon of issues the public are vocal about. They then campaign touting policies that seek to address those issues which they know full well will be popular - hence the term "populist".

2: Proof of its bigoted nature lies in the rise in racist incidents follwing the result.

I would think that the number of "bigots" remained unchanged pre and post Brexit. The result emboldened some of them to act who otherwise would not have acted.

3: Applying it to 'Labour voters' is just right-wing agenda-driven sloganising.

Suggestion for you Jim, quite easy and it does not take 5 minutes of your time. Go on Google and do two searches:

Search 1 - EU Referendum results in Maps
Search 2 - 2015 UK General Election results in Maps

The 2015 GE was not really all that great for Labour so the latter search throws up what I would call "hard core Labour" areas. Compare those to the areas that were the strongest Leave areas in the EU Referendum - You will find that apart from London - they were the same. (Now I know that you will not do that Jim, but others following this thread might and they will see that I am telling the truth.).

"Since 1973 the EU has played a major role in whatever "system Britain now has""
Britain became fouled up long before the E.U. was a twinkle in Britain's eye.
It started when the Tories began dismantling the limited progressive policies introduced by the post war Labour Government and reached its peak under Thatcher, who silenced the voice of working people in their place of work and set about destroying Britain's industrial base.
The E.U. was never more than an attempt by failing Capitalism to act in unison to stop the rot - a co-operation of Capitalist nations.
Whatever its failings, workers under Capitalism gained some limited advantages - not ideal, but better than what was happening.
Now that's gone.
"I would think that the number of "bigots" remained unchanged pre and post Brexit."
Brexit opened the door to racist and bigoted behaviour - it was won of a bigotry ticket.
"EU Referendum results in Maps"
Britain overall is a racist country - a quarter of those surveyed on their racist vies indicated that to be the case - part of the heritage left to us by Empire
Attempting to islolate that to Labour voters is as stupid as it gats.
This thread has been about Labour Party members supposed antisemitism, not that of Labour voters.
If you are suggesting that working people are more racist than any other class in Britain, you are even more extreme and stupid as you have already prved yourself to be.
Racism among the less well off is the result of the fear generated by scum like Ukip and the BNP, and fortified by vote seeking politicians who blame immigration on the failures of society rather than their own greed and incompetence - scapegoat politics - a favourite in Nazi Germany where the Jews were the target.
You really are a little goose-stepper, aren't you?
"Jom"
Still the same old, same old imbecility -are you really so insecure in your position?
For crying out loud, grow up and try to conduct a reasonable argument without the blustering bullshit - how old are you?

This thread has been flogged to death by people who wish to denigrate the Labour Party with false accusations - to my recollection it is the fourth on all prolonged by the same gang

It's a funny thing, Raggy. Those who complain about the content of threads cannot seem to resist looking at them. It reminds me of the Mary Shitehouse and Lord Longknob fiasco where they had to study pornography constantly just to see how bad it was. I can only put it down to a masochistic streak. Or maybe just a need to complain? Perhaps if they spent more time studying our beautiful world they would not be so petulant.

Oh - Forgot to tell you, Raggy. I have a roll of toilet paper with a picture of Donald Trump's face on each sheet :-) I'll try to save you some if you like but I suspect it will vanish pretty quickly in the bunk house.

If anyone finds a camera case to fit an Olympus Trip at the the bottom of Ill Bell in the Lake District, it's mine. Blew out of my hand in a gale when we were standing on the summit in 1981.
