Coincidently, (my arse) two reactionaries have attacked Corbyn/Labour today. Tony Blair and Ephraim Mirvis Orthodox Chief Rabbi in the UK. Considering Corbyn's stance on Military opportunism regarding the illegal War in Iraq where 500,000 Iraqis were murdered / vaporised , which lead to the formation of Isis.The Apartheid regime presently in Israel which he condemns like millions over the world as I do can anyone be surprised?
I would say that War Criminal Blair's attack should be a badge of honour. The Rabbi's attack is not unexpected, nor the gangster, War criminal Benjamin Netanyahu's intervention.
Be back to examine the hopeless BBCs role in the 4 year hate attacks on Corbyn/Labour, but more importantly a Socialist Labour Party as opposed to a Right wing Blairite dominated one which big business and the ruling Class could lean on. As they did during the Indy1 debate.

Is Blair still a member of the Labour Party?

Must be tempting to strip his membership
 
So this intervention by the Chief Rabbi in the worker friendly Times newspaper has done as intended, every media outlet, whether on TV or the kept billionaire press licking their collective lips at this well timed, as far as their Tory friends are concerned, boot into Corbyn and the party he leads. What you will not know unless you read the Guardian or the NME and never heard a peep of in the MSM, while this tripe by the Rabbi is given wall to wall coverage......

From the Guardian last week.....
Over 200 Jewish members and supporters of the Labour party sign a letter urging that anyone seeking an end to bigotry and racism should back Labour and Corbyn.

We are Jewish members and supporters of the Labour party concerned about the current rise of reactionary ideologies, including antisemitism, in Britain and elsewhere across Europe.
We note the worrying growth of populist rightwing parties, encouraging racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism. In Britain the far right is whipping up these prejudices, a threat that requires a resolute and energetic response. But instead we have seen a disproportionate focus on antisemitism on the left, which is abhorrent but relatively rare.
We believe that the Labour party under the progressive leadership of Jeremy Corbyn is a crucial ally in the fight against bigotry and reaction. His lifetime record of campaigning for equality and human rights, including consistent support for initiatives against antisemitism, is formidable. His involvement strengthens this struggle.
Labour governments introduced both the anti-racist and human rights legislation of the 20th century and the 2010 Equalities Act. A Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn will be a powerful force to fight against Racism, Islamophobia and Antisemitism.......

From the NME last week. Open letter to them because they would get zilch coverage in the bent MSM.

Exclusive: Letter supporting Jeremy Corbyn signed by Roger Waters, Robert Del Naja and more.......
In the new letter, the signatories – also featuring a range of major authors and academics, notably Naomi Klein and Noam Chomsky – describe Corbyn as a “life-long committed anti-racist” and claim that “no political party or political leader has done more to address [antisemitism] than Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.” Read the full letter below.

“To the Editor:

“The coming UK election is indeed a landmark and monumental one as signatories to a recent letter attest. However, we are outraged that Jeremy Corbyn, a life-long committed anti-racist, is being smeared as an anti-semite by people who should know better. Antisemitism is a problem within society and is present within all political parties and movements, including Labour. It must be confronted and rooted out at every turn. No political party or political leader has done more to address this problem than Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. In the last two years, the speed of investigations has increased fourfold, staffing committed to dealing with the issue has doubled, legal experts have been drafted, and rules changed to expedite sanctions. But the prevailing evidence speaks for itself: Labour’s political opponents and much of the media have trivialised and weaponised this issue for ideological ends.

99.9 %of the population have not seen or perhaps would not care about these letters. The Establishment MSM make sure the punters are putty in their hands. For all their certainty they do not understand.

Thx for the posts @GORDONSMITH7 , balanced reporting a thing of the past in most european (mainly rightwing) MSM these days.

You are not joking mate .The first 10 minutes on BBC news this morning attacking Corbyn. Johnson, the Tories, and right wing fellow travellers will be laughing their cocks off. Arch Tory Andrew Neil asks Corbyn to apologise for so called , totally manufactured ,anti Semitism in the Labour Party. He did not, absolutely correctly . Five minutes later on BBC breakfast news, a review of todays newspapers. All attacking Corbyn for this. We have a free press in Britain. Really?

the trend of reviewing the papers or taking their headlines as starting points for comment on BBC TV is really poor journalism, I get that its cheap and provides easy talking points but it allows Murdoch, Barclays, Rothermere etc to set the tone of debate which is bad for our democracy, whats the point in having a BBC News service if it reflects the print media? Instead they should be paying BBC journalists to do their own stories/investigation/reporting. We need an urgent review of how BBC News operate.

Don't know how reflective they are of the electorate, but the HYS comments on Sturgeon and Corbyn-related stories on the BBC news website paint a depressing picture of the way this GE might go..

As a means to an end SNP voter, I register my disdain at what Corbyn it is facing from the BBC / MSM. Its disgusting.
The BBC are, in the main a disgrace. (A simple continuation from the last Indy Ref imho).
Andrew Neil was a joke last night. Simply awful.

To the Scottish Electorate : We can END this shite. Its doesnt have to be this way at all. (my observations in my 45years is fuck all has changed since the English Nationalist Thatcher and co ran amok in the 80s fucking the working class) We can have the politics we deserve rather than the nonsense we are putting up with. I often wonder how much more we could get from our politicians up here, if they werent toeing a party line eminating from 500 miles away!!

Lastly, the worst 2 on this poll are those who arenae even going to vote! Worse than those in this thread voting for (proper) Right Wing Conservativism, or the lamentable scottish liberal democrats! You dont vote in Scotland? dont fucking complain about the mess we're in!

Lastly, lastly, enough of this patronising fucking shite we put up with up here whith the putting of "Scottish" at the front of everything... Scottish Conservaties, Scottish Labour, Scottish Liberal Democrats... gies peace!
