Masters of Suspension

Posted on: November 19, 2020

I have continued to add screen shots to this post since the day when the EHRC report was published. While the report was hot from the press, Mr Corbyn made his statement, was suspended and readmitted and then lost the Labour whip.

Members of the Corbynist forums react with fury (the same views are found on Twitter). I will not even attempt to describe their comments but invite you to read them. Targets today, 29 November, are Angela Rayner and the left wing Labour MP Nadia Whittome. Everyone who backs Keir Starmer or is supportive of Jews, is said to have accepted the Israeli shekel.

Many of the comments and assertions are naive or plain ignorant but that does not make them less dangerous. Antisemitism in and around the Corbyn movement has reached critical mass and does not depend on Mr Corbyn. If it is driven out of Labour, it will not disappear into a black hole.

Screen shots below are approximately in chronological order.

  • Garry Maddocks: It makes for sad reading Gillian although you inject a good deal wit in relaying this bizarre production. I had a parting of ways with Labour in 2017
