Keir? Hardly.

Under their new leadership Labour is no longer a home for free speech.

W Stephen Gilbert

I don’t propose here and now to address the merits or otherwise of the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s Investigation into antisemitism in the Labour Party. I am a member of the party and to do so in any objective or critical way would court immediate suspension from the party.

I prefer to cease my membership at a time of my own choosing.

It is impossible to write or say anything as a party member on the subject of antisemitism, unless it is a blanket condemnation of the party under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and/or a wholesale acceptance of the EHRC findings.

In fact the EHRC report invokes Articles 10 and 11 of the European Convention of Human Rights and affirms that “Article 10 will protect Labour Party members who … express their opinions on internal Party matters, such as the scale of antisemitism within the Party, based on their own experience and within the law”.

Sir Keir Starmer evinces no sympathy with this proviso. In his fury to stamp the legend of “new leadership” on the party, he allows no nuance.

But the fact that discussion by members of a report by an outside agency is verboten is a separate issue and, so far as I can judge, comment on this is not deemed to be a capital offence, at least at the time of writing. In any case, Starmer’s conduct of his office can hardly be beyond question for party members.

After all, from the moment of his election as leader, Jeremy Corbyn was confronted by a wall of dissent, dispute and disdain, especially within the parliamentary party. There were several cack-handed attempts to unseat him. A brilliant surprise victory at the 2017 election was snatched away from the party by a disorganised campaign of undermining, as was vividly illustrated in David Modell’s documentary Labour – The Summer That Changed Everything [BBC 2017]. The defining characteristic of Corbyn’s leadership was that it was virulently opposed within the PLP for its duration.

Corbyn lacked the temperament and the instincts decisively to quell this dissent for a very simple reason. He is a convinced democrat. One might argue that democracy takes priority over socialism in his political makeup. His attitude to democracy was summed up by his mentor, Tony Benn, in 1981:

It is not possible to conceive of a socialist society with any future that denies political democracy, nor is it conceivable that real political democracy could fail to lead to greater social equality and socialism Arguments for Democracy, Jonathan Cape

Compare and contrast Boris Johnson’s ruthless ridding of the pro-EU MPs from the Tory party as soon as he had an election to win.

Had the social democrats in the PLP been willing to serve in the shadow cabinet alongside the socialists, Corbyn would have led a broad-church opposition into the elections of both 2017 and 2019. Instead, a number of them declined to serve from the moment of Corbyn’s election and the remainder quit the shadow cabinet in the “chicken coup” of June 2016 that led to the (for them) calamitous challenge for the leadership by the patently inadequate Owen Smith.

Through all of this, it was open season for backbenchers to attack Corbyn in any way they chose, and the attacks increased as the centrists and right-wingers were concentrated on the backbenches, and issues like the allegations of antisemitism gave these malcontents a focus around which to coalesce.

Starmer saw all this at close quarters, remaining in the shadow cabinet in order to keep pro-EU politics in the game and to keep his ambition to lead the party fed by his being in the spotlight. The price of Corbyn’s democratic generosity to Starmer was the loss of all those hitherto Labour seats in the English north and midlands that had voted to leave the EU. But Starmer is no democrat, at least if his conduct of the reception of the EHRC report be any guide. On the claim of his party’s past antisemitism, he leads by fiat.

Tony Benn had something pertinent to say on that subject too:

Those who seek to justify authoritarianism of all kinds are forced to base their argument upon a false justification for an inherent inequality of political power. They deny the right of people to correct political errors at the top or remove those who make them. All totalitarian societies fear the emergence of democratic challenges and so do many societies in the West” [ibid]

No doubt Starmer would argue that he is indeed correcting errors and removing those who made them, but Benn’s point is about inequality of political power, and Corbyn as a former leader has no power comparable to that of Starmer.

But of course there is an embarrassment in Starmer’s position that he will seek to avoid having addressed in interview. Corbyn brought him onto the front bench as shadow minister of state for immigration immediately upon his own election as leader. A year later, following his re-election, Corbyn elevated Starmer to the shadow cabinet in charge of the party’s Brexit policy. This was in spite of Starmer having quit in the chicken coup just three months earlier.

Thereafter, then, he was subject to the convention of collective ministerial responsibility. Whatever errors – or even crimes – are now laid at the door of Jeremy Corbyn as leader, Starmer as shadow Brexit secretary was complicit in them. Repudiating what was done with hindsight does not exonerate him or any other member of the shadow cabinet.

Put up on The World at One to tough it out as Starmer’s deputy, Angela Rayner came under continuous pressure from Sarah Montague and was driven to declare that antisemitism had…

always been a blind spot for Jeremy.

This is perfidy of a desperate order. If, as they now propose, antisemitism was rife in the party, was it a blind spot for Rayner and Starmer too or did they merely turn a blind eye to it? For neither of them, it seems, was resignation the appropriate course to take so that they could proclaim Corbyn’s blind eye from the freedom of the backbenches.

Now, under their leadership, the backbenches are not bastions of freedom of speech and nor is the party at large. This sets a dangerous precedent for other contentious issues that will arise once COVID-19 is no longer the all-pervading issue in public life.

Watch these social democrats and see how soon they abjure democracy as a hangover from the Corbynite past.

Set out below is a letter I have sent to Keir Starmer. I won’t get a reply but at least I did it! Dear Sir Keir,   I am writing due to the Labour Party’s, in fact most notably your, failure to oppose the Lockdown 2 in Parliament on Wednesday, 4th November 2020. This failure is commensurate with your having spectacularly failed so far to raise any opposition to anything.   Firstly, I cannot express my disgust strongly enough by the imposition of this second Lockdown based on nothing more than quite clearly fabricated statistics compiled by Chris Whitty and Patrick Valance. It appears however that you had not bothered to analyse these statistics before blindly voting yes to more house arrest, destruction of the economy, destruction of the retail and hospitality sectors and others. Conversely, the Rt Hon Teresa May had done so and told you she had read the Sage Minutes… Read more »

The number is even higher when one realizes that most of the Jews in Israel and elsewhere, referred to as the Ashkenazi branch, are descended from the Khazar Empire in the Caucasus region, whose population was generally of Turkic origin. The aristocracy of that Empire converted to Judaism in the 8th century because there was no stricture against charging interest on loans to non-Jews, referred to in those days as usury, which they regarded as safer than raiding Silk Road caravans which passed through… Read more »

If I lived in America, in one of their brutal hostile dead cities, with no character, no charm, no humanity, no street life. no generosity, I would want a reset. The majority of people in the US and even the UK now hate their lives, they have horrible jobs, low incomes, little savings, horrible accommodation and no future as they cannibalise their families last remaining wealth.

It does not surprise me that they are engaged in a huge reset. Of course neoliberal ideology will never offer what people want and will never even offer what the elites want, they can keep ‘resetting’ all they like, they will never be happy because their ideology is past it’s sell-by date, offers nothing to anyone of any value.

The Toffs are in the most part totally clueless of the plight of the so called Working Class and thier hand-to-mouth existance. I talked about Universal Credit and Sickness Benefit to one multi-millionaire Toff a while ago and explained how they could justify Universal Credit at £495. His answer was that many people exist on less than £495 per week, and the National UK average pay was around £495 per week, I explained that the £495 Universal Credit figure was PER MONTH not per week – he did not know! I also asked about the £95 Sickness benefit – again he was clueless – he thought that was per day… Read more »

The problem with anti-semitism is that the goal posts move. In the old days left wing ideology was often attacked as Jewish because many of the thinkers and theorists in the movement were secular Jews. The shift occured because of conflating Judaism with Zionism. A long established religion and culture was hijacked to serve a nationalistic, race based agenda. (Jews who objected to this were denigrated as ‘self-hating’.) The amount of money — especially American money — flowing into this meant that the ideology could be cemented so now any criticism of the State of Israel, and especially its treatment of the Palestinians, is officially regarded as anti-semitic. Corbyn’s great sin was to not recognize this reality and fall into line, instead insisting on fairness and likely embracing the BDS movement as well. The opposition to this movement is ferocious and its one of the few examples of a political… Read more »

Martin I totally agree, Zionism is not Judaism, In the same way that Political Islam is not the Islam understood by many of its believers. Both just want to gain Political Power and both use the cloak of religion to hide behind.

The Zionists is a Political Party and its members are not all Jews an awful lot are gentiles.

The Islamic equivalent to Zionism are the Muslim Brotherhood who follow the Medinan surahs as opposed to the Meccan Surahs. As the Meccans Surahs are an earlier version and more lenient to unbelievers then it can be ignored if the Medinan surahs say the opposite.

The MSM and Pollsters said that the election would be a walk in the park for Biden, if this was the case Biden would have been well ahead in the votes cast at the Polling Stations. Instead we see a scrambling for every last vote, so not the major victory that Biden and the Democrats forecasted.

The only bank that counts is the Bank of England, a private company with mostly unknown shareholders. The only known shareholder is the UK Government. It exists to make a profit for its shareholders. It is no coincidence that hidden away in the UK Enabling Act is a provison for increasing the UK’s borrowing limit from 2% of GDP to 50% of GDP (> £250 billion currently). Those loans – used to pay for all the covid scams, and the furlough payments, etc – will have an interest of at least 0.1%, possibly variable – so the BoE gets £250 million for entering a few digits in the UK government balance sheet. The interest payments will have highest precedence for any money recoverable from tax payments or asset sales.

They are the credit magicians and we are not. 97% of the money in circulation was created by private banks, the big four I think, as loans to you and me and millions of others.

Well, leave Covid aside, the Tory Party has now spent more than over £17bn more than was in the Labour Party Manifesto. We are now trillions in debt, trillions. At least the Labour Manifesto would have used that money to invest in infrastructure, in jobs, in education, in affordable transport, in affordable housing which would lead to more, better paid economically active citizens. Under the Tories. We have a deep recession, 2m added to the dole queue recently, trillions of pounds of debt, a breakdown in public services, the decimation of affordable housing, the most expensive transport system in the world.

Yes Israel, who ran the operation, benefits because it stopped criticism of their human rights abuses, but Israel is just the USA’s attack dog, being used to destroy socialist. A war the US have been engaged in, all over the world, since the second world war. It is ironic that at home in the US, socialist sentiment, although not framed as socialism, is rising, out of control in the populations minds. Leaving the pathological hatred of socialism, which is essentially only the representing of your own peoples interests, looking more and more absurd, mentally ill and Fascist.

Probably blaaarites, which should have been expunged years ago and pointed in the direction of the Tory party, the true home of their disgraced leader. The UK will never have a political system which is fair or legal without first ensuring an open and responsible media. Since we in Blighty have no main stream news outlets who are not compromised, responsible, or prostituting themselves for a share of the public purse, it seems unlikely that the people will ever get a free press or a true democracy.

It is very precisely in context and a response to a specific question about what can be done considering that many people have already voted. What Biden did is let his mouth run away. In his condition he cannot keep secrets.

Two responses: first, neither Starmer nor any Labour MP voted or even spoke against Boris and his second lockdown, which is decimating the lives and livelihoods of Britain’s communities. Not one member of the people’s party opposed this authoritarian government on behalf of their constituents, but 38 rebel Conservatives did, knowing that they were risking their promotion prospects. Starmer’s idea of opposition seems to be demanding more of what Boris is inflicting on us, but faster. Disgusting. Second, your eulogy of Corbyn the committed democrat forgets his solemn promise to respect the Brexit referendum result, especially the 5-6m working class Labour voters who chose Leave. He famously switched to remain, so breaking his promise and abandoning both a restored UK democracy and his own voters, many of whom will never again want to rebuild any red walls.

It thereby ultimately stood in the way of democracy too, and Lansman is a key figure in the Corbyn story in my opinion. 2017 was fucked by Manchester Arena.

Given how politicized the justice departments have become in the UK and the U.S., is it likely that Starmer would have got anywhere near the post of Director of Public Prosecutions without being thoroughly vetted by TPTB as “capable of taking, and willing to take, instruction”?

Did Starmer use his position as DPP to strike down injustice, root out corruption in high places and level the scales of justice? One thinks of the great Italian magistrates and prosecutors who exposed NATO’s Operation Gladio and who fought the mafia.

Or was Starmer a “safe pair of hands” in the eyes of the corrupt, the venal, the abusers and worse.

Starmer’s defenders point out he is not a judge but a human rights lawyer. They say he was not in charge of the DPP when it decided “insufficient evidence” precluded a prosecution in the brutal murder of Jean Charles de Menezes in July 2005. A finding Starmer upheld after the Dec 2008 inquest. A finding also upheld by the Strasbourg ECHR. The inquest had revealed that the policemen who identified de Menezes was in fact a soldier on secondment to the undercover surveillance unit – which was looking for four attempted bombers who disrupted London’s public transport system on Jul 21 2005, two weeks after the July 7, 2005, London bombings. 7/7 is often cited as one of the most notorious false flag attacks. The official line is that de Menezes murder was bungled – though the presence of soldiers masquerading as police (very relevant today) suggest other possibilities. Police… Read more »

The antithesis of Keir Starmer Ferdinando Imposimato’s career coincided with Italy’s “Years of Lead” — he investigated the kidnap and murder of former PM Aldo Moro in 1978; the massacre of Piazza Nicosia, 1979; and the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II, 1981. His legal judgments were intensely resented by groups such as the Cosa Nostra, the Camorra, and the Red Brigades (since linked to the CIA). In 1983 his brother, Franco, a trades unionist, died in a hail of bullets. It was hardly surprising that in retirement he should join the independent investigation into 9/11, which he called an American Gladio. “The 9/11 events were an instance of the strategy of tension enacted by political and economic powers in the USA to seek advantages for the oil and arms industries.”Imposimato continued to “give all my energy to the search for the Truth and Justice for all the victims… Read more »

He was installed by Campbell and Blair to stop being prosecuted for their lies on the Iraq war.

He was used to stifle the investigations into paedophilia by the great and famous, including Saville.

He was in charge of the CPS that instructed the Swedish authorities ‘not to dare withdrawing’ the fake rape accusations against Assange, that were setup by the DS spooks to get JA to stop the release of their crimes.

Starmer was rewarded with a Knighthood and the safe Labour Seat which was controlled by the mini Nadia CLP heade by Polly Toynbee.

All of that is public record – but the dumb as fuck Labour membership still voted for him as Leader instead of a Northern, working class local Long Bailey – refusing the option of the first female leader of the Labour Party in favour of the Metrosexual parachuted state servant !

On new UK parties appearing, are you tempted by BLM or Nigel Farage’s Reform?

Would that be the party the corrupt establishment then basically broke up and banned their top people from ever running in politics again?

It’s heaps better to have an open social credit system than what we have now. As it stands now, 1) you have no idea why things very often go wrong, 2) you can’t find the person who is responsible and 3) there is no one to complain to. (or, when you are allowed complain, a wall can give a better response)

Here is a tiny example of what you are surrounded by: From 1968 – 2007, at least 30 women were deceived into long-term relationships by undercover officers: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/505910-uk-spycops-undercover-police/

They’re both bad. The Chinese social credit system (which the West wants to emulate) is a tyranny. I want no part of it. Why do I need a QR code to meet friends in the pub?

Of course, both bad, but we shouldn’t bash China when at the same time we have built something much worse (and getting worse by the day).

Don’t forget, this is happening while we are bombing other countries under the banner of promoting democracy and freedom which is fast disappearing.

You dont need the QR code….its the government and its agencies that need the qr code to know who you have met,where you have met,if it is compatible to their agenda that you met etc etc etc

Thats nothing compared to what they can now do with the apparent backing of the law….in the future you’ll look back on those 30 relationships as the glory days

The centuries old global Anglo Imperialism controlled by the millennial Money families is in its final decades of collapse. It exists now as a attempt to gaslight 5+1 eyed Gollum’s ‘citizens’ into a last ditch attempt at grabbing more resources by sending their sons to kill civilians in far off lands. The future is the SCO and BRI and it’s coming together with an ever closer EU which has escaped the nato mafiosi. The Empire is dead. Long live the new Empire ! One that finally aims to raise the poorest not enslave and steal from them. Until the Thai army and police are not run by their aristo families – that country will always remain the openly coup state it has been and vassal of the 5+1 eyed soldiers cheap, young poor girls and boys to fuck. A coup state that the U.K. was finally publicly turned into last… Read more »

So what part if the EU is escaping the “nato mafiosi” …? Merkel, Von de Leyer, Charles Michel, Macron….? Carl Bildt, the PiS regime in Warsaw or the fanatic Russia hating Thatcher clones in the Baltics, the Borissov bouncer thug in Sofia…..do tell?

I get how these charlatans have stitched themselves into the fabric of society….the interest in their doings etc – but why tolerate them – when are about as meaningful as a conversation about clouds under a clear blue sky – aren’t we tired off their continual haziness – and dulled enough to gather a great windstorm to blow them away for good.

If I had magical powers I’d like to see every politician take PCR tests the way that everyone else has to (and self isolate accordingly).. To lose their income (because their job had been destroyed by lockdown rules).. To have their health care cancelled (as millions have) and to generally suffer the same trauma as the rest of the population has for the last nine months. There is too much tragedy

It seems however, that politicians and the like are exempt from the suffering experienced by their constituents. Still amazed how some break the rules with impunity (Neil Ferguson and his mistress, Tony Blair ignoring quarantine rules, SNP politicians breaking rules, Jeremy Corbyn etc)

Wish I lived in Sweden

“So what happened to THE SECRET BALLOT. Why isn’t anyone talking about that? Is everyone brain dead?”

PS It is no ones business or right to know who someone else “voted for.”
