Smearing Corbyn – with friends like his who needs enemies?
The Labour right and its “new Labour” MP’s, under the leadership of Mandelson et al is determined to smear their party leader, Jeremy Corbyn as being in league against Jews together with a myriad of unnamed anti-Semites in their defence of Palestinian human rights. The “roll-out” of the tried and tested tactic of, ” guilt by association.”
But a look back at the Labour Party’s record in office exposes its vicious racist policies and warmongering which led to the death and disability of many thousands of young British servicemen and women coupled with a similar fate in the case of many hundreds of thousands of innocents in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and other theatres of conflict generated by the “Allies”. War without end!!!!!
The right wing press (see below) attacks Jeremy Corbyn daily and it is evident there is not to be an honest debate about the future direction of the party. More it is about the all powerful Jewish lobby “The Labour Friends of Israel” which is insistent on retaining control over the party’s approach to the seemingly endless Israel/Palestine conflict and the vision of peace that will prevail. The politics of spin, jiggery pokery and attack dog politics is back on the agenda with a vengeance.
Will the lobby fight dirty? Yup!!! A very full smear bucket is handed to the press and supporters. Corbyn is charged with being unelectable, perhaps because he and his team avoid the politics of spin and little substance that caused so much damage to UK citizens over the last four decades. In truth he has learned from lessons handed down to him by Ed Milliband and his pathetic group of failures who had the election on a plate and “blew it” big time.
How does the foregoing affect Scotland ?
The outcome of the battle for the hearts and minds of the Labour Party in England and Wales is important for Scotland and independence. A win for Corbyn would be to the advantage of Scotland since it would most likely lead to internecine warfare within the labour party in Scotland.
Dugdale might then resign passing the leadership of the Party “branch office” in Scotland to someone whose politics are more finely tuned with the politics of the party masters in London.
The UK press acts in unison against Corbyn – Why?
