One need to salute the ingenuity of some of our lords and “leaders”!
They have more expertise in deceiving audience, compared to experienced magicians.
Just look at the excitement on Corbyn’s Facebook post.
A post, which was posted in 2012!
It was intended as a general comment about removal of public art on the grounds of freedom of speech.
Later Corbyn clarified it as well:
“I sincerely regret that I did not look more closely at the image I was commenting on, the contents of which are deeply disturbing and anti-Semitic.”
The matter should have closed by this statement.
But of course, our “magicians” are experts!
By this tweet, Lord Sugar too proved he is not behind anyone.
Labour and anti-Semitism
Like in any large party, unfortunately there could be few racists in Labour as well.
The party launched inquiry chaired by Shami Chakrabarty; it’s report is being implemented.
Two senior Labour figures were suspended too.
While these are the facts, current attacks on Labour are nothing but cheap tactics.
Cheap tactics, by Tory supporting media and a small section of “old” Labour supporters.
They are afraid of the growing popularity of the true Labour and it’s strong, left leadership.
A leadership which condemned the Iraq war.
A leadership which firmly stands against inequality.
A leadership which has taken the right stand on Brexit.
The Tories, “old” Labour and some of its MPs know their days are gone.
They are desperate.
So desperate, that they’re whining over a Facebook post from 2012.
To discuss more about this topic is just to deceive and divert public’s attention away from current government and its pathetic “achievements”.
Here are some of those “achievements”:
- Infant mortality rates have shamefully gone up for the third year in a row.
- Policy changes introduced between 2010 – 2018 is forecasted to cause 1.5 million more children in poverty by 2022.
- This government did too little, too late, to stop a takeover that might harm national security.
Just three “achievements” from just last few days and weeks.
They summarises the incompetency of May’s minority government.
It is this incompetency that Lord Sugar, Tory media and others are trying to divert our attention from.
Let us not fall in to their diversion tactics.
Coming back to anti-Semitism.
The world stood firmly behind Jewish community during Nazi brutalities.
The world should show same support for Palestinians, who are oppressed for decades.
Labour was clear in their 2017 manifesto:
“A Labour government will immediately recognise the state of Palestine”.
That statement is very clear.
Being pro-Palestine is in no way anti-Semitic.
