In the meantime, the absolute boy somehow, somehow, finds an angle to make things even worse. He's found a jewish person willing to meet with him and discuss issues. Hooray! Oh, but - awwwwkwaaaaaard - he's an anti-LGBT activist!

You. Could. Not. Make. This. Shit. Up.

Just the two of them? Who else was there? What was the topic of conversation?

Or are we just left to fill in the blanks?
You didnt seem as relaxed when you thought Jess Phillips was socialising with bad 'uns....

Did no one bother to tell Bell that the reason that letter got pulled is because it was dodgy as fuck?
It was

He's always had dialogues with people he disagrees with. The meat of the issue would be why they met and what they discussed, but for some reason that's omitted from the story (almost like the journalist wants you to draw your own conclusions...).

It's not like they're clinking champagne glasses in Harrods. Get some sense of proportion ffs...

yet we seem to be thin on the ground of actual good examples of AS?
Since you haven't replied to this, I guess you missed this post?

Hundreds of cases waiting to be investigated are enough for you? 15,000 screenshotted examples isn't enough?

How about sharing this image from an article which states:
“Blacks don’t hold a candle to the parasitic, Whitish looking, chameleon Jew… Just like the continuously changing or mutating HIV virus, Jews are the virus that destroyed the proactive, protective White T-cells of our body politic, while blacks are the “opportunistic” disease bacterium ravaging the system overall… The Jew virus first infected our digestive tract (the money-making apparatus or Federal Reserve) and then sent offspring out into the nervous system and up into the brain (the educational system and media) to blind and confuse us with a somnolent-inducing drug called “PC,” while keeping us from visiting the doctor (Hitler).”

Remind us again what happened when he was at a meeting that Chuka turned up to as well.
On Wino's reaction to a Labour MP who talks to Tories.

If Winegums doesn't like any examples we provide, perhaps he'll be more swayed by the experience of someone who was a big cheerleader for Corbyn at a local level.



Oh, and while we're at it, that bigot's lunch club? I suspect this was what they were having a lovely chat about:

#581368
Corbyn's 'dialogue with his enemies' is curiously at odds with the mantra of contemporary politics: that any countenancing of your opponent is essentially a submission to fascism/communism, so happily and enthusiastically endorsed by Winegums on other matters. What are centrists loathed for, after all?

Plus fuck off does he do that.

The McCluskey mafia at work?

https://news.sky.com/story/labour-antis ... l-11766424

Once again, Corbyn comes across as out of his depth, exerting some malign influence.

More on McCluskey and Unite's shitty behaviour.

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ ... 32b5157?az
The bravery of the staff who ensured that this motion passed, many of whom doing so while fearing reprisals from management, is a testament to solidarity – a value which should sit at the very core of the Labour party and the union movement. Reportedly, 128 voted to support the motion. Those voting against it numbered only four.

As a former member of Unite the Union, Len McCluskey was my General Secretary when I was sat at my desk in Labour HQ considering suicide. At the time, this felt as though it was my only option to stop feeling complicit in what I saw going on. I was not alone in struggling with mental health challenges – that was only the beginning of what is now being described as a “mental health crisis” for Labour party staff.

This is the context in which a handful of other former staff and I chose to speak out about our experiences of racism in the Labour party on BBC Panorama last Wednesday. It should have been a watershed moment for the party. So we were all shocked when, rather than engage with the very serious issues raised by the program, the party instead chose to come after the messengers with a vicious and libellous attack, with no due care to the emotional and mental wellbeing of those involved.

I don't reckon there was any great desire to keep Jackie Walker in- why would there be, they'd got rid of Wadsworth for much less? The explanation that they were frustrated about it taking too long sounds plausible, except I'd expect an email to say that, or at least to make it clear what the reason for objecting to this NCC was. Is there any reason they can't produce that email themselves?

In general, email chains are a nightmare to follow bits of. I think this has to wait for the EHRC.
