Re: UK politics

This says it all about U.K. politics currently... https://twitter.com/catherinelenson/status/1197073351111516160?s=21 This just one example of numerous attacks on Corbyn, by those claiming to represent the view of U.K. Jews, following the leaders debate. You have literally posted that a minority gr...

Re: Derek Hatton

Nope.... Try asking Jo Maugham. Well, that's cryptic. And borderline twattery. At 7:15 I read your comment, claiming that Freedland had not withdrawn his accusation, and marked "3 hours ago". I pointed out that Freedland had in fact withdrawn his comment, and apologised for his error, before you po...

Could I nonetheless entice you into venturing an opinion as to whether the reported comments are antisemitic?
No, you can't. As I said, I'm not commenting either way.

Re: Derek Hatton

Of course, by the time Freedland accepted his mistake and deleted his post it had been retweeted numerous times. He still doesn't appear to have publicly acknowledged his mistake either. You posted around 4pm (I can't find the precise timestamp.) Here's Freedland's acknowledgement and apology, time...

Re: Derek Hatton

I'm getting ever more confused. Do you think her remarks are in fact anti-semitic? Or, come that, unfair to Israel? I'm not commenting either way. Merely pointing out that the facts are more complex and nuanced than you've made out. It is becoming rather clear rather quickly that Labour has made a ...

Re: Derek Hatton

"A Labour candidate has stood down after being put under investigation for a blogpost that compared Israel to “an abused child who becomes an abusive adult”. Kate Ramsden, who had been standing for Gordon, in Aberdeenshire, withdrew for “personal reasons” after Labour asked her to re-interview and ...

Re: Food stories: what you have cooked or eaten (or will be cooking or eating)

Before this turns into a "What didn't you eat" thread, yesterday's lunch: I had rabbit liver, cooked with bacon and mushrooms in a sticky, savoury, gooey sauce. She had fishcakes ("neonati") made out of something that was probably far too young to be landed. We then both had seafood linguine, which ...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

I am getting lots of Limp Dem shite through my letterbox. I shall be saving it all up and sending it back to them (along with something nice and heavy) using their Reply Postage Paid service... I shall do the same to the Tories if they're daft enough to give RPP service details (although they may h...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

No but, rather than leave the notion of The EU Army out there like the shark in Jaws, it might help if more people had a better understanding of it. Precisely. Mocking would be something like "Leavers really are dicks if the numpties don't understand that there isn't an EU army @joswinson." I think...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

A Lib Dem MEP decides to mock a constituent on Twitter: B7B70FDD-DE72-4601-8903-05D00AC608D7.png They really are a party of dicks... Have another read. It's the constituent calling the MEP stupid. In the circumstances the MEP was remarkably polite and poster "Greg @UKRegulator" reads rather like a ...

You do have a tendency to frame your opinions as fact, don't you.
So, if you read the internet, do most of the world.
