What Is This Alleged Anti-Semitism In The Labour Party? Is It A Secret? Does It Even Exist?

with one comment

London, UK. Friday 5th September 2012. ‘Freedom for Humanity’ a street art graffiti work by artist Mear One aka Kalen Ockerman on Hanbury Street near Brick Lane. Tower Hamlets has ordered that the mural be removed as the characters depicted as bankers have faces that look Jewish, and is therefore antisemitic.

My regular readers will know that I am no supporter of the Labour Party but I am bemused by the wall-to-wall coverage about what you would think is an extremely serious issue.

We have been given absolutely no explanation at all of what this is all about.

The only substance seems to be that in 2012, Corbyn commented on a Facebook post of a mural in East London which was about to be whitewashed over.  Apparently he agreed that as a piece of art it should be left alone.  Perhaps he didn’t look at it closely enough?  I don’t know and I really don’t care. Ferreting around in people’s old social media posts used to be the preserve of obsessive nutters, trolls and sad young wannabe journalists with nothing better to do.  Now it seems to be one of the BBC’s main ‘news’ sources.

If this mural is the sole reason for all this hyperbolic coverage, what exactly is the matter with the mural?  It lampoons some caricatures of Jews but it wasn’t long ago that we were encouraged to permit lampooning of images of Mohammed as free speech.  This is clear bias, a ridiculous amount of coverage and yet more proof that the BBC is increasingly focused by lobby groups for minorities to the detriment of the majority.

As for the Labour MPs sabotaging their party in puerile demonstrations outside Parliament, what is it all about? I asked on Twitter, “where and what is this anti-semitism” and I received just a couple of replies both referring me to the Twitter feed of a Jack Mendel who describes himself as the Web Editor of Jewish News UK.  The pinned tweet which is supposed to justify this hysteria can be seen here.

There is nothing to see. It’s a conspiracy theory more suited to a spotty, adolescent 14-year old locked in his bedroom stinking of smelly socks than anything remotely serious.

‘Witch hunt’, ‘McCarthyism’, call it what you will. These allegations of significant antisemitism are a smear campaign by an irresponsible BBC and the right wing press.
 
Anyone who denies the Holocaust is simply a fool and anyone who discriminates against those of the Jewish faith is just a sad idiot – but it’s not racism, religion is a choice.

On the evidence, and remember I am no supporter of Corbyn, the far more likely explanation is that this is a smear campaign which is really about the righteous opposition to the war criminal state of Israel and its apartheid and genocide against the Palestinian people.

I’m Not A Conspiracy Theorist But…

with 2 comments

If I had just executed a dramatic terrorist attack for maximum media impact I would not go out holding up 7-11 stores.

If I was photographed exiting the boat I was hiding in, apparently unarmed, why am I now in critical condition in hospital.

Why has it taken an operation on such an outlandish scale to deal with two pretty dumb teenagers?

Something isn’t right.

Evidently My Work Is Succeeding!

with 65 comments

I have my very own hate website!  Somebody has gone to a great deal of time and trouble to put up a site all about me, seeking to… well I’m not sure what actually but you can judge for yourself: http://peterreynoldsmonitor.wordpress.com/.

I am hugely flattered and inspired by this.  Why would anyone go to all this trouble if my work wasn’t having a real and significant impact?

And this hasn’t been put together by some numpty.  I’m afraid it’s way, way beyond the ability of the LCA old guard.  Whoever the author is, he or she can write, spell and even construct a coherent sentence. The site is well put together.

Of course it is abusive, defamatory and infringes my intellectual property and copyrights from beginning to end.  I will be writing to WordPress asking them to take it down for those reasons – but not just yet, please allow me to revel in the flattery and attention just a little longer!

I think we can all recognise that this is a mark of progress.  For someone to use their evident intelligence and ability to attack me like this means I am succeeding.

I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I never have been.  All my experience of life teaches me that it’s cock up then cover up that is the reality behind most conspiracy theories.  However, I have been persuaded recently that there may well be undercover police or intelligence activity in the cannabis community.  It was the revelations about the undercover cop in the climate change movement that convinced me.  I mean the cannabis lobby has made so little progress and there’s been so much infighting.   How can so many people campaign for so long about something that is so self-evidently wrong and make no progress at all?

So this could well be undercover activity promoted by a government that wants to defend its policies.  I’ve been accused of being an undercover cop myself.  Derek Williams of UKCIA has enjoyed laying into me and questioning my past but I don’t think this is Derek.  It has some of his hallmarks and he has the ability but I give him credit for more integrity than that and he’s been very supportive to me about CLEAR and recent developments.

Anyway, the longer this goes on the more comfort we can take that we are making progress.  I certainly won’t be bothering to read the nonsense that’s being published.  It’s all innuendo, suggestion and “maybe” and “perhaps” and “possibly”.  In fact,  it rather reminds me of reading another report on cannabis and psychosis except that the courageous seeker after truth who has written it is grovelling in cowardly anonymity.  Let me be clear (!), I’ll happily answer any question about me or my past including the darker and more unhappy times (yes, I am human!) but not to some internet troll.  Let the author of this hate site publish his or her name, picture, email address and location online as I do and I’ll happily answer any questions.

Of course, the real disappointment will be that I don’t have any skeletons in my closet.  Oh, I have skeletons for sure but they’re all out in the open.

So that’s enough.  I won’t dignify this sordid little trickster by any further comment.  I am hugely flattered though, encouraged and inspired.  The war on prohibition is making progress!

Keir Starmer – The Next Lord Widgery?

No Better Than A Terrorist

The scandalous decision not to prosecute PC Simon Harwood over the death of Ian Tomlinson is reverberating right across the world.

British justice has become a laughing stock and our proud history of freedom, liberty and fairness is heaped with derision – and deservedly so

When the establishment needs to dissemble and misinform it calls on its tame lawyers and paper tiger figureheads.   Keir Starmer, the DPP, is clearly angling for his peerage and his place on the government roster of professional liars, deceivers and propagandists.

In 1972, when British soldiers murdered protestors on the streets of Londonderry, they wheeled out Lord Widgery who produced a report of such crass dishonesty and fundamental deception that it took a further enquiry lasting 12 years and costing £200 million to expose it as nonsense.

When millions across the world have witnessed the unprovoked assault from behind on Ian Tomlinson, they have wheeled out Keir Starmer, another tame QC, to demonstrate a complete absence of integrity and deliver a deeply corrupt, manipulative and unforgivable decision not to prosecute.

In the last 50 years more than 1,000 people have died while in police custody in the UK but not a single policeman has been prosecuted.

Is it any wonder that we have pond life like Raoul Moat feted and worshipped by the underclass when they suffer under the yoke of police oppression, when they see no justice nor fairness nor hope?

The truth is that PC Simon Harwood and Raoul Moat are two peas from the same pod.  Police websites, such as the notorious Inspector Gadget, reveal serving police officers’ attitudes just as perverse as those that supported the Raoul Moat Facebook page.  The police are completely out of control, ineffective, mismanaged and corrupt.

It took 30 years for the Metropolitan Police to admit that one of its officers was responsible for the death of Blair Peach.

The suggestion from the extreme left is that we are being softened up and desensitised against a future where with swingeing public expenditure cuts we can expect to see riots in the streets and more police violence.  I don’t buy this conspiracy theory but I am desperately worried for the future of British justice when men like Keir Starmer are in charge.

It isn’t just incompetence.  It isn’t just misjudgement.  There is clear intent to pervert the course of justice.  He knew that the six month limit on bringing a charge of common assault was passing.   He knew that the conflict between expert evidence was for a jury to determine.  He knew that never was it more essential “in the public interest” for a prosecution to be brought.

Keir Starmer is every bit as dangerous to the fabric of our society as any terrorist or subversive.  Look at how many lives Lord Widgery’s behaviour was responsible for.  Look at how his lies prolonged the violence and fed the divisions within Northern Ireland.  The same thing is happening all over again.

PC Simon Harwood, Raoul Moat, Keir Starmer.  They are all the same.  They are all a danger to society.   They should all be behind bars.
