UK Politics : Groundhog May

Why on earth would you think the 7 wouldn't back a vote of no confidence? They clearly don't have any more confidence in May today than they did a few weeks ago. Having left the Labour party because it wasn't opposing Brexit, they hardly have an interest in propping up a government that's fixated on delivering Brexit at all costs.

 

They don't.  But, they don't want Corbyn as PM, or an early general election, in which they'd be likely to lose their seats.  That's why I think they'd abstain.

It looks like Wollaston, Soubry, and Allen will jump ship today from the Conservatives

This is spot on. The ONLY MP who has committed to any kind of People's Vote is Corbyn. These guys are using Brexit as a smokescreen for their ideological differences.

Because if there's no evidence of it than all it does is play into the long-running stereotype of Jews running the world in secret. This never happens with other countries, it's only Israel that constantly deal with unfounded accusations about improper influence. Israel does step over the line sometimes (especially in the US) and when it does, it's called out on it; the same as other countries are when they overstep. But other countries are not attacked by rumors when they aren't doing anything; only Israel is.

And with France reporting a 74% rise in anti-Semitic violence last year, Germany a reporting a 60% increase, and the US reporting a 57% increase for 2017, people are more on edge about this sort of thing.

Yeah... Except very few countries try to maximize their influence like Israel does. And no, not "especially in the US" but throughout the West. And no, it generally *doesn't* get called out on it. Quite often because it channels funds through foreign citizens who of course are Jewish, hence making this an "Israeli-Jewish conspiracy" and that anyone exposing it would instantly be cast (and sound) anti-semitic.

It's very obvious that MPs supported by Israel or Israeli-funded organizations will go after Corbyn and one should take accusations of anti-semitism with quite a bit of salt. If you have a group called "Labour Friends of Israel" it's only natural to wonder what that group is about exactly. And if anyone from that group seems to go after their party leader, it's not unreasonable to wonder why and how exactly. The mistake Ruth George made was to make her suppositions public. You DO NOT do that. You just can't.

Meanwhile, Sajid Javid has attempted to demonstrate his dubious ability by engaging in legal and political overreach to appeal to readers of the tabloid press. He has attempted to strip a British citizen of her citizenship, rendering her stateless which is illegal under international law which the UK has agreed to.

 

He really is the worst. Horrible little man. He needs to be challenged on this. Today.
