Dave, I am not asking you to discuss anything.
Just to clarify your views on Shah.

Do you agree with Steve and Jim that her comments were not ant-Semitic and she did not advocate transportation even though she freely admits both, or with me that she did.

I doubt that you are concerned about hurting my feelings by disagreeing with me.
I am sure you do agree with me but are concerned about your friends' feelings.
They are grown men Dave.
They know that even friends can not agree on everything.

Steve,
Very, very clear indeed, Keith. Dave says that the Labour Party is no more antisemitic than any other.
That is your opinion, but many promininent members have said that it is.


Yes. They have said that Labour has a serious problem with it, not other parties.
Labour Jews have complained about the Party's anti-Semitism but none from other parties have.

Very, very clear indeed, Keith. Dave says that the Labour Party is no more antisemitic than any other. You say that many prominent members say that it is more antisemitic than any other. So I ask you to name the names of the many prominent members who have SAID THAT LABOUR IS MORE ANTISEMITIC THAN ANY OTHER. You can't name them. The reason for that is that your statement that MANY PROMINENT MEMBERS HAVE SAID THAT IT IS is a downright lie. You know very well that there are NOT many prominent members who have said that Labour IS MORE ANTISEMITIC THAN ANY OTHER. You hedge and ditch around, you fudge and you dissemble. But what you can't bring yourself to do is admit that the statement that MANY PROMINENT MEMBERS HAVE SAID THAT IT IS is pure fiction. You can't support that statement. You lied. You lied over Wheatcroft and you still won't admit it after three years. I'm a very patient man, Keith. You are lying yet again here. I have all the time in the world. I won't drop this.

I have not lied.
You have not even said what lies you are falsely accusing me of. Tsk tsk.
We know for a fact that Labour has a serious problem because of statements from numerous prominent people including Sadiq Khan, Tom Watson, the current and former leaders of Scottish Labour, and the "entire NEC" which includes Corbyn himself.

Well Steve, the meat of the message was in the last paragraph.
Let me elaborate.

Sharon Hodgson MP Tweet:
"Jeremy Corbyn: Labour could write off historic student debts. All those in their early twenties with student debt vote labour.........

Students who have already paid £9000 per year on university tuition fees could have their debts cleared Jeremy Corbyn has revealed"

and Imran Hussein is filmed saying:"Jeremy Corbyn has announced that the tuition fees will be abolished straight away from September if there's a Labour government, and that we will bring back immediately EMA."And also that every existing student will have all their debt wiped off".

Looking around the table at the pupils he adds: "That's fantastic news, isn't it guys?"

If those actions were not designed to make young gullible people vote labour then the moon must be made of green cheese.

Now there are many ways of interpreting the above.
They were out to deliberately mislead the electorate.
They had no idea of the contents of their manifesto.
They were indadequately briefed
They were not safe to be allowed out on their own
They would say anything to curry favour.
They were out to buy votes..................................

The labour party is clearly caught both tweeting and in recorded footage proposing actions they are now trying to deny.
I hope they have a method statement for backpedalling and that their risk analysis is up to par. Experience indicates backpedalling to be extremely hazardous. Long term they have probably done themselves considerable damage-students past, present and future are unlikely to forget.

That is an odd choice clip, Iain. I expected to hear a Labour MP talking about student debt, which is the current point of discussion.

Since you quoted from the Labour manifesto at length (and I congratulate you for that: I always read all the main parties manifestos before I vote) and go on to say "So above is what the manifesto stated but the message spread by supporters and by the great leader went much further than the above" I take it that you agree, whatever anyone else said, that the manifesto contains no promise to reduce student debt.

I have also quoted at length from the NWE article in which Corbyn explicitly says "I don't have the simple answer for it at this stage". Do you agree that "I don't have an answer" is not the same as "I know! Let's pay off all student debt"?

But the Tories had to abandon large tracts of their manifesto and sell their souls to the DUP in order to retain power. They are not going to do lots of things they said they'd do. Triple lock, anyone? The LibDems got their hands on a bit of power and immediately went back on their tuition fees promise. Manifestos are more aspiration than promise and 'twas ever thus. You are homing in, for ideological motives, on statements made which are of uncertain meaning that were not even part of a manifesto. Bully for you, the Mail and the Standard, but that's what partisans always do. Politics, dear boy, politics.

Interesting the pack still insist on putting the source of the news first and promptly slag it off before trying to manipulate the content to their own agenda.

Here is a wriggling labour clip

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4gZjLiNRbc

The actual manifesto states:
"Labour believes education should be free, and we will restore this
principle. 1o one should be put off educating themselves for lack of
money or through fear of debt.There is a real fear that students
are being priced out of university education. Last year saw the steepest fall in university applications for 30 years. Since the Conservatives came to power, university tuition fees have been trebled to over £9,000 a year,and maintenance grants have been abolished and replaced with loans.The average student now graduates from university, and starts their working life, withwith debts of £44,000.Labour believes education should be free, and we will restore this principle. 1o one should be put off educating themselves for lack of money or through fear of debt.There is a real fear that students are being priced out of university education.

University tuition is free in many northern European countries, and under a Labour government it will be free here too"

So above is what the manifesto stated but the message spread by supporters and by the great leader went much further than the above and that is what they are being taken to task on.It may well be politics dear boy politics, but it is also bribery of young people led to believe that what they wanted to hear they actually heard, and as a result voted upon. The Romans called the crime AMBITUS. I think a case could be made for arguing electoral fraud. Perhaps those misguided quotes we hear of were the result of speaking in tongues, or more likely with forked tongues.

Bribe, Shakey? Come off it. You could say that any manifesto commitment by any party that favours one particular sector is a bribe, even if it's intended as a correction for unfairness. Thatcher predicated her whole premiership on bribes, if that's the way you want to look at it. She bribed council house owners with massive discounts. She bribed working people by privatising utilities and selling shares at disgracefully cheap prices. Pensioners, who actually vote, have been bribed for decades. The current rash of populist politics is no more than a set of bribes. If that's the way you want to look at it. Alternatively, you could just accept that it's politics, dear boy, politics.

Yes. Here is a lengthy clip out of the NME interview:

"Yes, there is a block of those that currently have a massive debt, and I'm looking at ways that we could reduce that, ameliorate that, lengthen the period of paying it off, or some other means of reducing that debt burden. I don't have the simple answer for it at this stage ? I don't think anybody would expect me to, because this election was called unexpectedly; we had two weeks to prepare all of this ? but I'm very well aware of that problem. And I don't see why those that had the historical misfortune to be at university during the £9,000 period should be burdened excessively compared to those that went before or those that come after. I will deal with it."

See? No promise to repay the debt. And a clear admission he didnt have a simple answer at that point. The only promise is to look at it and 'deal with' a lack of balance between those on £9000 a year compared to other years.

Steve's more recent post is correct. On page 43 it says "Labour will reintroduce maintenance grants for university students, and we will abolish university tuition fees."

It says nothing about debts built up because of past fees. Claims it did are either mistaken or a delibwrate distortion. In particular the NME interview did not claim Labour would cancel those debts.

From the Labour manifesto:
The abolition of tuition fees and reintroduction of maintenance grants, at a cost of £11.2bn
(Latest revision 100billion+)
Labour always has been careless with other people's money!

George Osborne's Evening Standard has splashed on Guido's student debt scoop from this morning. Team Corbyn have a new line: that frontbenchers Imran Hussain and Sharon Hodgson were "mistaken" about Labour's policy and shouldn't have said that Jez was planning to wipe out debts. If Corbyn's own top team were mistaken, not sure how voters were meant to understand it.

and the icing on the cake is discredited blair's foundation poll results below.

I said that Shah was a prat (note not just a prat) but you did not believe that.

I think that making racist comments is worse than being a prat.
You did not say she was anything but a prat, so just a prat to you.

What you refuse to say is if you believe as Jim and Steve do that her remarks were not anti-Semitic and she did not advocate the transportation even though she freely admits she did.

Do you get the message gnome? You have a disgusting technique of playing the innocent before popping up and firing-quite the coward are you not? In reality you are so far up shaw's a***s you could have a second career as a suppository.
   When you and you pathetic little mates clean up your act we could have far more interesting debates with much wider participation.
You can hand it out but the least whiff of a response and you all start screeching, normally led by jimmy the ranter who pops up in all sorts of places just to criticise. I wonder how many appeals to the mods you all make between yourselves. The typical response of bullies.
Sad little people really, are you not? and we must not forget greg. A man with a severe medical problem of incessant trumping. Someone should tell him there is a cure for flatulence. According to recent rumours he is so full of shit he requires 2 assholes, this may account for the flatulence I suppose.
Have a nice day

Well in a way I suppose that independently-minded people always have a sort of arms-length relationship with anything they decide to join, whether it's the pub session, the bowling club, a trade union or a political party. On the whole, though, you might have thought that the person joining would see at least some good...

Hatchet has been buried and I've even laid a nice piece of turf over it so you can't even tell it's there.

Yes I've had a strange relationship with LP, no I'm not going to go into it now.

I'm a very simple man, Shakey. You told us that you've been a member since 1976 yet you haven't had a single good word to say about it. Forgive me for thinking that your standpoint is distinctly odd. I don't generally play word games and the only tactic I tend to employ is to ask people what they actually mean by what they've said. I invite you to clarify your apparently strange relationship with the Labour Party. If you don't bother, I won't say another word.

You used the word hate twice in quick succession when actually I never said it once.

You've just told us that you've been a member of a party you appear to hate for forty years.

Now did you mean this, if you did please quote where I've said I have hated the LP for 40 years.

Or did you mean

You've just told us that you've been a member of a party for forty years you appear to hate

which I think you'll agree has a different meaning. No matter but if this is what you meant then please quote where I simply hate the LP - slightly easier except that I never said that either did I?

That's an interesting debating tactic you have Steve, first criticize someone and then ask for their standpoint.
