Monday’s Sun ran with Pro-Israel Maureen Lipman’s declaration that Jeremy Corbyn has turned her into a Tory.
THE actress declared 'Jeremy Corbyn has made me a Tory' as hundreds held up placards demanding the party hold their leader to account. At the protest, organised by the Campaign Against AntiSemitism, the actress described herself as a 'disenfranchised socialist'.
Lipman’s loyalty to Israel is no secret — she renounced Labour membership under Ed Miliband.
'The Chuka Harman Burnham Hunt Balls brigade? I can't, in all seriousness, go into a booth and put my mark on any one of them', Ms Lipman wrote of the shadow cabinet
The Sun might seem to speak up for Jews but, in the case of Ed Miliband, the son of Ralph Miliband, a prominent Socialist, they made a significant exception.
likewise with Jewdas:
Opposition leader told reporters he had a ‘lovely time’ at the Jewdas dinner to mark Passover last night – who have dismissed the issues facing the party as a 'cynical manipulation'
Senior Academics say:
Letters: More than forty senior academics write to condemn what they see as an anti-Corbyn bias in media coverage of the antisemitism debate
Mummy, What’s a Bad Jew?
Another Jewdas video:
Bored of the Jewdas after 90 seconds, I didn’t understand why they flyered outside a Gilad Atzmon concert when they could just as easily chat to him over a nice cup of English Breakfast.
But there’s nothing illegal about what they did. Nothing bad.
I’m more interested in Gilad Atzmon. He’s caused way more of a fuss. Here he is on RT.
Atzmon’s upset people. He served in the Israeli Army, became a Jazz musician, and renounced his Israeli citizenship. Most significantly of all, Atzmon has written books which have seen him accused of holocaust denial.
Dissent is good and free societies should allow people to make up their minds for themselves.
If Jewdas want to call Atzmon an anti-semite, good for them. If Galloway wants to praise him, go-ahead.
And if the Sun want to call them all anti-semites, so what?
Atzmon’s wiki says many accuse him of holocaust denial. I find this hard to believe, but I haven’t read his work.
Salman Rushdie achieved similar notoriety, but on a grander scale. His Midnight’s Children is amazing but I find him an insufferable bore. His friendship with Bono hasn’t helped.
Back to The Sun
Despite their accusations of Corbyn’s anti-semitism, The Sun are equally happy to blast anti-capitalist anti-zionist “bad Jews” such as Jewdas.
But they are equally happy to go for Jewish businessmen.
The language and imagery used to describe Nat Rothschild, Oleg Deripaska and Peter Mandelson in Monday’s Sun is positively conspiratorial.
Once you start throwing the word Rothschild about you are opening yourself up to charges of antisemitism. Tone and imagery give you away.
ONE of Peter Mandelson’s closest pals and business cronies has emerged as the biggest loser from the Kremlin’s Novichok outrage. Notorious metals magnate Oleg Deripaska is one of seven Russian tycoons hit by sweeping US sanctions against Moscow’s “malign activities” and the attempt to kill Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
In the case of Mandelson, Osborne, Rothschild and Deripaska, I assume the story is completely true but they should have been more restrained.
But how could they resist? Who doesn’t love a bit of conspiracy?
Speaking of which, why is Farage linking Assange? And why is a guy from LBC Radio accompanying Farage? James O’Brien, also of LBC (but a Rampant anti-Corbyn Remainer) defended Farage’s LBC colleague as being “all right”. Not good, I’m afraid. What happened?

The Roseanne Show
Roseanne Barr is a comedienne I’ve always had time for.
She interviewed Donald Trump many years ago and asked him about running for President.
Now that her old TV show is back on she is enjoying a resurgence.
She has switched from running for the Green Party and promoting marijuana to staunch supporter of Israel and, amazingly, of Donald Trump.
Speaking of better days, here’s Maureen Lipman’s advert for the former state asset, BT.
Nick Griffin of the far right BNP has just come out in support of Jeremy Corbyn – not for his economics but for his Syria policies.
Funny that because the Daily Mail’s recent economics line has been closer to vote-winning Labour Policies than any other periodical except the Morning Star. If anything, the Mail are louder.
Corbyn and the Mail are against the GKN Melrose takeover, both favour saving the Open University and both criticise tax avoidance and privatised utilities such as water and electricity.
I mentioned the Mail’s bizarre economics and politics in the Amusing Ourselves to Death podcast on Real Media last Friday:
Given that Assange is working with Farage, Nick Griffin supporting the Labour Party is a real wakeup call.
The Fascist Daily Mail are already copying Labour’s economics of intervention.
The Government now advocate economic intervention in markets and psychological intervention in the job centre!
John Major famously declared he wanted to turn Britain into a classless society. Letwin called it Social Market Economics and contrasted it with Corbyn and McDonnell’s Crypto-Marxism. As opposed to Crypto-fascism, which is where we are going.
Are we now reaping the rewards?
On the subject of BNP style monopolisation of white working class, my colleague Kam Sandhu just wrote Working Class in Britain? You must be White.
Ian Paisley Jr, a DUP MP, retweeted this. This is the type of people the Tories are currently in bed with. pic.twitter.com/tjbkH0K0ks

Adam Curtis often talks about Vladimir Putin’s PR guy, Surkov.
He puts out the truth but also funds opposition parties and generally promotes organised confusion.
Looks like he has decided to enter and disrupt the UK market.
And in that sense he has won.
With so many agenda and so many players it is almost impossible to know who is doing what and why.
Murdoch is very powerful and anti-Russian, but the Tories have taken so much money from Russians and got so deeply involved with them that it is difficult to know when they are serious about dealing with Russia and when they are simply lining their own pockets.
Under the Tsar, a desperate Russia produced The Protocols of the Elders of Zion – which people fall for even today.
Sadly it looks like disinformation is back, the more I look into it the more I realise it never went away.
