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 […]

Israel’s tiresome exceptionalism

…and how to fend off the Inquisition As the whole world and his dog knows by now, former London Mayor Ken Livingstone was suspended from the Labour Party for expressing an uncomfortable truth (uncomfortable, that is, for Zionists). What was it? “When Hitler won his election in 1932 his policy then was that Jews should […]

Cold light of dawn for Corbyn

as UK Labour is again punished at the polls in England and in melt-down in Scotland The Party’s performance once more was dismal despite the unpopularity of Cameron’s Conservatives and the irrelevance of the Liberal Democrats. Jeremy Corbyn will be surveying the election wreckage and wondering where he goes from here. Some will blame the […]

Get Corbyn!

Antisemitism Inquisition shifts up a gear in bid to wreck Labour’s election chances and remove the ‘loose cannon’. With important local government elections a few days away the campaign against alleged antisemites reached a crescendo over the weekend, with the press and TV corps in full cry.   Their main quarry was former mayor of […]

UK Labour Party in grip of Zionist Inquisition

The orchestrated smear campaign against pro-Palestine sympathisers sent me reaching for my pen. But Gilad Atzmon too was eyeing the Labour Party’s crazed witch hunt for “antisemites” with misgiving and had already declared, in his usual robust way, that Labour under Jeremy Corbyn was not so much a party as a piece of Zionist-occupied territory. […]

What it really means to be a Friend Of Israel

The humbug of ‘shared values’ and What it really means to be a friend of Israel Once again the AIPAC annual pantomime in Washington DC has played itself out while the world outside watches aghast at the gullibility of America’s political elite. And how they flocked to hear the Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech. […]

Gaza, this Uninhabitable Planet

‘Gaza, this uninhabitable planet… I want to run away from this madness’ Latest word from mom of three trapped in the hell we created… There is little joy in writing about the plight of the Palestinians, as I have done for the last 10 years. But one of the rewards is that, occasionally, I receive […]

US theatre squelches play about Israeli siege

(that’s the 40-day siege of Christianity’s oldest church, not the 9-year siege of Gaza) So the ‘The Siege’ has been canceled in New York. Well, there’s a surprise! According to Mondoweiss, Friends of The Jenin Freedom Theatre issued a statement saying: “It is with deep regret that we announce that the Public Theater has decided […]

Falk reprimands Ban Ki-Moon over truth about Israel’s crimes

‘The politics of deflection’ (shoot the messenger, ignore the message) exposed With obvious relish Richard Falk, former professor of international law at Princeton and UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Occupied Palestine, has issued a well deserved slap on the wrist to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon for his naivety. It follows Israel’s furious […]

‘Ethical’ Co-op Bank leaves Palestinian cause in the lurch

Several organisations in the UK that support Palestinians in their struggle for freedom are reported to have had their accounts frozen or closed by the Co-op Bank or been threatened with the chop. The bank until recently was part of the well-regarded Co-operative movement and famed for its business ethics. After running into financial difficulties […]

UN supports sovereignty for Palestine and slams Israel

Resolution severely criticises the ‘Occupying Power’ Can this be true? Something important and, freedom lovers may think, rather wonderful seems to have happened at the United Nations, and it went largely unreported in mainstream media. The UN General Assembly approved a draft resolution ‘Permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including […]
