LAAS ‘troll’ group ‘data breach’: named/shamed NEC member for asking email-list removal

The faux-Labour group ‘Labour Against Antisemitism’ – which in spite of its name has no standing with the Labour Party and which has frequently been accused of vindictive trolling on social media – was exposed this week sending unsolicited emails to CLP (constituency Labour party) secretaries in an apparent breach of data protection laws. The […]

Jewish people respond with disgust to Hodge’s ‘1930s Germany’ comment

Labour MP Margaret Hodge spoke to Sky News yesterday about the experience of being told that she faced a disciplinary investigation for swearing at and insulting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – and compared it to being Jewish in the 1930s and fleeing Nazi Germany: The comparison – of receiving a disciplinary letter and being hounded […]

The lovely folks at Sussex Friends of Israel might not want this to go viral

The ‘Sussex Friends of Israel’ Twitter account is full of bile against Jeremy Corbyn. You have to scroll a long way down its Twitter feed as of this moment to find a tweet that isn’t directly about the Labour leader – and even then, it looks indirectly about him. The politics of its comments are not hard […]

Dear Times and Daniel, I don’t know how to tell you this: Corbyn can’t see the future. Even a month

The desperation of the smears against Jeremy Corbyn has been increasing – and increasingly apparent – over the last few weeks. The claims that Corbyn had laid a wreath at, or been beside, the graves of some people who are buried in a different country were ridiculous – but a low point was reached with […]

“Labour against Antisemitism” in ‘serious breach of data protection laws’

The group ‘Labour against Antisemitism’ (LAAS), in spite of its name, has no standing with the Labour Party – a fact either missed or ignored by mainstream journalists who wish to portray its various attacks as having some kind of official weight.

Netanyahu attacked over comments that caused outrage in Israel

On Monday evening, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu attacked Jeremy Corbyn for laying a wreath at graves in a Tunisian ceremony.

Margaret Hodge denies expressing regret. Formby: Chief Whip says twice that she did

Margaret Hodge (image: Wikimedia Commons) Labour MP Margaret Hodge has tweeted a letter from her lawyers to the Labour Party which denies that she expressed any regret for her behaviour toward Jeremy Corbyn. A letter sent by Labour general secretary Jennie Formby flatly contradicts Ms Hodge’s claim – and also states that Hodge received a […]

Azim on ‘mental health slur’ anger: ‘crank’ is common among ‘young high profile activists’

On Wednesday, LabourList published an article under the inflammatory, “The real battle for Labour’s soul? Lansmanites vs Cranks” As an article, its aim is fairly transparent – and it is not to promote unity among the Labour left. It has lazy and unevidenced assumptions in abundance and dismisses people on the wrong side of her […]
