The problem is that voters don't care about this boring infighting within the Labour party. I just want a party that can provide an opposition to the government, that is what they are there for. I think the SNP is doing a better job of that than the Labour Party at the moment.There is no 'Global Jewish Conspiracy' to undermine Corbyn, but there is a power-struggle going on within the Labour Party between rival factions, Blairites and Corbynistas (Corporatists vs Marxists), neither of which represents what used to be Labour's working-class voting base.
That's right.It's off-topic but the SNP has its own issues, notably the lack of a viable currency plan, the reason that 'indyref' failed in the first place: post-secession would Scotland keep the pound whilst no longer being in a political union with England, would it adopt the Euro or have its own currency (as the Republic of Ireland used to have before its government gave away its fiscal sovereignty)? Scotland currently runs a huge spending deficit (even net of oil revenues) with the rest of the UK, so someone else would have to pick up that tab. The SNP's oxymoronic policy of 'independence' within the EU must be so that Scotland can be subsidised by the taxpayers of Germany rather than the taxpayers of England.
Thanks for posting. It's interesting - if that is the correct word - the way that this issue has spread beyond this country, to people who would otherwise have little more than a passing interest in the internal machinations of Britain's Labour Party. I think that where a lot of the allegations of 'anti-Semitism' come from is that Tony Blair's main fundraiser was Michael Levy, whom Blair made a peer. It was Levy whose contacts turned Labour into a party of big business, New Labour. David Osler's book published in 2002 has more information. BBC link below from 2007:While RT might not be the most objective source, this article seems interesting:
Progressive intellectual Noam Chomsky has voiced his opinion over the ongoing barrage of “anti-Semitism” allegations against the Labour party, calling them a “disgrace” and an “insult to the memory” of Holocaust victims.www.rt.com
Full opinion letter:Corbyn is not an anti-Semite. He never was. His real sin is his staunch position against injustice in the world, including the version Israel perpetrates. Today this is anti-Semitism. The Hungarian Viktor Orban, the Austrian Freedom Party and the extreme right in Europe are not the danger to Jews. Corbyn is the enemy. The new and efficient strategy of Israel and the Zionist establishment brands every seeker of justice as an anti-Semite, and any criticism of Israel as hatred of Jews. Corbyn is a victim of this strategy, which threatens to paralyze and silence Europe with regard to Israel.
