Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

sandgrounder's avatar is taken from an iconic TV show written by people who know a thing or two about irony. To Corbyn's surprise many of them Jewish.

He can now get back to his allotment where he won't be able to do much damage.

That’s IT?? That’s what gave you a bee in your bonnet? You’re pissed because I like a TV series written by people who ‘know irony’ and might be Jewish?

I've reported this to the moderator as it's only allowed to use a picture of yourself, as per forum rules. I don't understand that Sandgrounder is the only one that can get away with this.

Do you think I’m a 15th century Italian assassin?

A few people on here better hope not!

You do realise Blackadder was written by Ben Elton who is, get this, Jewish AND critical of Zionism.

That's the end of that cunning plan, Balders.

Corbyn is on record saying that "Zionist (meaning jews) don't get British sense of humour" - interesting considering sandgrounder avatar.
Double um...

Well you’ve been evasive, sly and oblique about whatever point you’re trying to make so is it any wonder nobody's got a clue what you’re going on about?

Quite depressing. The whole episode, not only today. Or yesterday or the last few weeks. Brexit. EF made it even more so. And it keeps delivering.

For all Remainers here: you were stoic. Hats off!

My point is (again) : had corbyn won, jews would be in an unenviable position. Jews like the creators of Blackadder.

And where would the likes of sandgrounder lift their avatars from then?

For weeks many here ignored Corbyn's antisemitic tendencies. The vast majority of voters didn't.

You’re probably best arguing all this nonsense back and forth all by yourself. Enjoy.

<< jews would be in an unenviable position>> from what I've learnt they always were.

<<had corbyn won .... where would the likes of sandgrounder lift their avatars from then? >> From all the things Jewish people will no doubt keep creating, as they always have.

Don't belittle the Jewish populace by pretending people voted against Corbyn to protect them from him.

It's funny how the whole subject of the Jewish community and antisemitism was only a "thing" when there was an election at stake.

I'm sure they were thrilled to bits to become a vote-winning political pawn to be dragged around the Tory shop window for a few weeks.
There's nothing funny about the existential fear that has set in in the Jewish community due to the vitriol and hatred that has emanated from some in Labour.

Please read this 53-page report before you blow this off so lightly:
https://www.scribd.com/document/4383...on-to-the-EHRC

If you're not going to read it, please don't dismiss Jewish people's legitimate fear of what a Corbyn premiership could have meant. I direct this also the person who called concern about antisemitism 'irrelevant' and 'deathly dull'.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

And for the sake of balance

Quote:
The Muslim Council of Britain has issued a statement saying there is “a palpable sense of fear amongst Muslim communities” after Johnson’s election victory. This is from Harun Khan, the MCB’s secretary general.

'Mr Johnson commands a majority, but there is a palpable sense of fear amongst Muslim communities around the country. We entered the election campaign period with longstanding concerns about bigotry in our politics and our governing party. Now we worry that Islamophobia is “oven-ready” for government. Mr Johnson has been entrusted with huge power, and we pray it is exercised responsibly for all Britons.

We understand that the prime minister insists that he is a one nation Tory. We earnestly hope that is the case and urge him to lead from the centre and engage with all communities.'

I would like to believe that his antisemitic tendencies cost him votes.
