Finished with your dishonest claim that accusations of Islamophobia was fukky investigated in any way shape or form by the Tories, Teribus
You do put 'em up to be knocked down, don't you?
Islamophobia is a far greater threat to the well-being of British citizens than antisemitism is, or ever was in recent history.
Britain welcomed Jews fleeing the Nazis, modern day Britain is happy to turn fleeing refugees back into war-zones facilitated by weapons we have sold to terrorist despots.
WE fill our shops with goods manufactured in death-traps by workers working at near slave conditions and wages. and we turn away economic refugees fleeing from the poverty we are helping create.
The West has gone through a long period of dehumanisation during my lifetime, and the main culprit has bot been The Labour Party (New Labour excepted), but the racist and misogynist Tories

The whole charade is simply a cover to deflect and overturn the result of the EU referendum by making the coming negotiations inoperable.

I have always said that if we seek abetter and fairer system in the future, we must do so by including all shades of political opinion, division will make the task impossible.

President Trump and Mr Farage are both anti the current establishment, which has outlived any usefulness it may have had.

The Labour Party are "reformers" as establishment as they come, I have more faith in Mrs May's Conservatives to keep up with what is actually happening in the Western hemisphere.

I am and always will be a socialist but have enough intelligence to understand that socialism will not come about till the time is right, in fact all the old labels are redundant as the new order becomes clear. As I have said before socialism will not be a "pleasant choice", it will be an absolute necessity.

They are selling you the same lie that political con men have been selling for millennia and sadly you are still buying it. They have your interest at heart as much as Genghis Khan did.

"Momentum's former vice-chair Jackie Walker has been formally referred to Labour's highest disciplinary body for possible expulsion over comments she made about Holocaust Memorial Day.
Labour's national executive committee (NEC) also referred several other members who had been suspended from the party over the summer. Among those were: Paul Davis, the vice-chair of the local party in Wallasey, who was referred over allegations of bullying and intimidation during the leadership challenge by local MP Angela Eagle; and Marc Wadsworth, a party activist who, at the launch of a report into Labour and antisemitism, challenged Jewish Labour MP Ruth Smeeth that she was working "hand in hand" with the media."

Well, Keith, you could have helped the Guardian out a little by adding that Marc Wadsworth has been a prominent Labour campaigner for equal rights and against all forms of discrimination for decades, including fighting antisemitism, that he didn't know that Smeeth was a Jew and that Smeeth put on a deliberate act of histrionics, including fake tears, at the launch. Nothing like the "truth," the part-truth and nothing but the part-truth for misprepresenting, eh, Keith?

Pedant alert. The Honda 50 was not a moped.

Strictly speaking, mopeds are driven by both an engine and by bicycle pedals, but in common usage and in many jurisdictions the term moped is used for similar vehicles including a scooter, though this is quite erroneous

My arse, you're not.
If your concern for the vicims of racism and bigotry, you wouls speak out on behalf of all of them -
Instead, you are an extreme bigot using three "may be" incidents to denigrate a party set up and dedicated to opposing racism and bigotry.
Both dishonest and extremely hypocritical

Steve,
what you should have done and give us the link so that we can read it for ourselves.

I thought you took the Guardian.
I stated it was from, "Guardian yesterday,"

That should be enough for anyone, or you could just google a bit of the text.

As you clearly need to be spoon fed, https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/mar/07/labour-members-may-be-expelled-over-claims-of-antisemitism-and-bullying
