Antisemitism report tries to whitewash Zionism

The House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee has just issued its report ‘Antisemitism in the UK‘ in response to concerns about “an increase in prejudice and violence against Jewish communities” and “an increase in far-right extremist activity”. It was also prompted by allegations of antisemitism in political parties and university campuses. The following observations […]

Aleppo or Gaza, What’s the Difference?

Stop! Decency demands we smoke out the real perpetrators of war crimes against Aleppo and Gaza As Western outrage erupts over the relentless destruction of Aleppo and its people, why is there no similar clamour for a halt to the more prolonged pulverising of Gaza and the continuing slaughter of civilians there? The UK’s Permanent […]

Never mention the J-word

… It’s not applicable to Palestine Seems our politicians, on both sides of the Atlantic, are under instructions to drop the J-word from their vocabulary. I mean J-for-Justice, conspicuous missing from any discussion about Middle East peace and, more specifically, an end to the hell in the Holy Land. Only the other day at Westminster […]

Could Hamas’s Haniyeh steer a course to freedom?

Leadership change offers a glimmer of hope for Gazans, and possibly all Palestinians, stuck in that Holy Land hell At least, that how I view the news that Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh appears to have thrown his hat in the ring for chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau, a position held by Khaled Meshaal […]

Brexit Boost for Scotland’s Wacky War of Independence

A month on from the Brexit vote and Scotland’s EU-smitten First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, continues to stamp her foot in frustration. But hopefully, after her frantic tour of European capitals pleading for Scotland to remain a vassal of the EU one way or another, the absurdity of her stance is beginning to dawn on her. […]

Iraq verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”. It’s unfortunate that he dignifies […]

Will Brexit be blocked?

Unprepared Government is paralysed. Need for an all-party transitional cabinet with vision to steer it through. Democracy has delivered. The UK as a whole has spoken. It’s Brexit. Not everyone likes it, and the enemy within are plotting to obstruct it. Prime minister Cameron and Chancellor Osborne are tight-lipped, Cameron appearing only to announce his […]

Brexit: So What Happens Next?

Where is the road map? Who can be trusted to see it through? I had a bad feeling about it. And although we got the desired result against all expectations, the sense of foreboding is still there. Maybe it’s reserved for the actual implementation of Brexit and the possibility – no, probability – that it […]

EU Referendum – Escape to Sanity

Our One and Only Chance of Escape to Sanity I have a bad feeling about the referendum vote tomorrow (Thursday).   All the mainstream political parties – Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, Greens – want us to remain in the EU. The Establishment wants us to remain. The US wants us to remain. And roughly half […]

This Bloody EU Referendum

Dirty Tricksters Swing into Action The question whether to remain in the EU or leave has been distorted beyond recognition by political pimps and spivs on both sides of the argument. They were not invited into our living rooms but set themselves up as our advisers all the same. Every political party (except UKIP) has […]

EU In-Out Referendum: We Wanna Break Free!

Panic in high places as unthinkable ‘Brexit’ suddenly looks possible With a week to go, the UK’s referendum on whether to stay in or leave the EU (European Union) is finely balanced and, some pollsters say, leaning towards ‘Leave’. This has caused consternation in the marbled corridors around Westminster. The gruesome assortment of self-appointed ‘champions’ […]

Schoolgirl Leanne Betrayed

Free-speech organisers pull the plug on her ‘Birds not Bombs’   In a highly-regarded public speaking competition 15 year-old Leanne Mohamad, a pupil at Wanstead High School in London, stood up and gave an impassioned speech about the appalling situation back home in the Holy Land. It was so moving that she won the regional […]
