The Labour Party. All discussion here please

Isn't Corbyn pro Brexit? Certainly he's a lifelong Eurosceptic.

 

I have always been a EU sceptic, but then when it came to the vote, I had to decide which side to vote for.

I decided that it's easy to moan about EU policies, but if we leave nothing would be different. Most of the things that we moan about, are things which are done in Westminster.

 

What will be different outside the EU?

Blue passports, straight bananas and huge queues outside Dover?

So getting back to the (in)Glourioous Leader, it seems that Jezza was according to Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust actually present whilst this rant was going on and was so struck by the right course of action that he though of his freinds in Hamas, realised what a quandry this was, and decided that he best do.......

 

Nothing. He apparantly let him carry on and just sat there.

 

Now sorry, but when someone is being a total member and they are in your party you call them out and tell them to stop being such a prat. What happened to his self professed "militant opposition to anti-Semitism" then...

 

Leader of the Party? Leader of the country?

 

He can't even lead himself out of a paper bag. I'm appalled at his utter lack of moral fortitude and conviction.

Alternatively, you could be impressed at his moral fortitude and conviction.

 

The comment may have been ill-judged in the current climate, but it certainly wasn't anti-Semitic. I would be more appalled at his lack of moral fortitude and conviction if he called out a clearly not anti-Semitic rant for being anti-Semitic because the Mail, Sun, Express and his enemies in the party told him that that is what he should be doing.

 

Let's not forget what a disaster Blair was for moulding his every political move from Daily Mail headlines.

It's becoming increasingly obvious that social media is being used as a tool to smear the party, using this anti-semitism as a weapon.

 

I've reported several people on Twitter - who claim to be members of the party - for posting anti-semitic statements, only to find out that they are not party members at all. None of the accounts I reported were members!

Corbyn has apologised for attending antisemitism meetings where Israel was compared to Nazi Germany. He states that his presence did not mean that he in any way agreed with the agenda of said meetings. Now call me picky, but he said ‘meetings’, I could understand one in isolation, so why continue attending the meetings? :huh:

I think you might need to look at his work with the IRA. You can only make peace with your enemy by entering into a debate.

I know this might seem like a strange option to those that would rather bomb people.

Just head to Twitter and search for the subject. I'm not posting images from my account on here.

Ta, it just seemed odd that an organisation like Facebook or Twitter would reveal that kind of information when you report an account.

It's not Twitter that reveals it, it's the accounts of the people that do the reporting. You have to search for these accounts but there's plenty out there. All of those I've looked into are not members of the party, yet claim they are.
