  1. In a poorly thought out concession to Johnson, the no-doubt future Lord Farage of Cuntingdon has today announced that the Brexit Party will not contend any Tory held seats in December. Instead of splitting the Tory vote across the entire country, they're only going to split the vote in the seats the Tory's don't already hold. Lol. Such genius. Thanks Nige!
  2. So, on the day the world commemorates millions of people lost to the horror of war, the British Media decides it's time to attack Corbyn over his reluctance to kill even more millions with nuclear weapons. Fucking state of debate in this country.
  3. I'm sure having their suffering placed in historical context will be very comforting to all the men, women and children illegally imprisoned in Gaza. Smh.
  4. Is it, though? There's been a fair bit of debate as to the exact definition of that word, and while I cannot be arsed with getting into a semantics argument with anyone, I will say this. If you were to pile up the bodies of every Palestinian who has died as a result of Israeli war crimes over the past sixty years, you'd probably have a pile big enough to satisfy anyone's definition. But seeing as this has been going on for so long, it's much easier to sweep the evidence under the carpet. Fewer unsightly lumps, you see. And I will not be thought-policed by anyone into ignoring the irony of a nation being created specifically to allow one group of people to be free from oppression, only to result in another group of people being systematically and horrifically oppressed. If it were not for the Red Cross, MSF, and all those other guys, constantly battling Netanyahu and his goons to get aid to these people, the city of Gaza would be the world's biggest ever concentration camp.
  5. Why do you think I'm trolling? You think the Israelis are not engaged in an ongoing, systematic program of ethnic cleansing and genocide? Gaza has been blockaded since 2007. That's nearly two-million people illegally imprisoned. And with an estimated 80% of the population reliant on humanitarian aid to keep them alive, the situation on the ground is extremely grim. Yet western society's othering of the Palestinians has been so successful that their general plight, not to mention atrocities such as the 2018 border massacre, go largely unnoticed. It is not okay.
  6. Why not? Is genocide and ethnic cleansing only bad when it's being perpetrated against Jews?
  7. That would probably change were you to run for office for the Labour Party.
  8. I wanted more than a line. You see, I wanted context. Something that's lacking in so many of these Labour anti-semitism stories. Anyway, for what it's worth, I will certainly be raising a metaphorical glass when genocidal maniacs Blair and Netenyahu pop their clogs. Evil bastards the pair of them. I also happen to think the line about the state of Israel becoming an abuser is actually a pretty good analogy. Oh, wait, the State of Israel decrees that any comparison of the plight of the Palestinians to the Holocaust is anti-semitic. I guess genocide and ethnic cleansing is only bad when it's being perpetrated against Jews, eh?
  9. Here's what John Bercow, a Jewish Tory, had to say about Corbyn's anti-semitism:
  10. I was just baffled by the furore. I tried to read the original blog post, for context, but I couldn't find it anywhere. If you've got a link, please share.
  11. I didn't 'airily dismiss' anything. I asked for an explanation as to why an innocent looking (to my eyes at least) sentence was considered anti-semitic. It's telling that the reason you gave was different to the objections being raised in the anti-Corbyn press (holocaust reference). After reading your post I googled "The Wealthy Establishment", because I'd never heard that exact phrase before. According the googles, it simply means Old Money. The only anti-semitic references I could find amongst my search results were newspaper reports about the offending blog post. Anyway, my bad for not being up to date on all the latest racist codewords. Pardon my ignorance. Question: If I make the OK hand sign, does that make me a white supremacist?

    "To me the Israeli state is like an abused child who becomes an abusive adult. Like child abuse it has to stop.” Can anyone explain to me what makes this statement anti-semitic?

    As long as Jo Swinson keeps up the shit work, then, as Malcolm Tucker might say, it's on, like Fat Pat's thong.

    I need to go down the shops, but I'm scared to go outside due to all the rioting because we're not leaving the EU today.

    Do we know if Farage actually intends to run a candidate in every seat? If so, there's a chance they'll cut each other's throats.
