As has been predicted for a while now, by both mainstream media ans alt_news commentators, the UK’s far left Labour Party which has been tprn by internicine conflict since current leader Jeremy Corbyn, the long serving Trotskyite Member of Parliament for one of London’s most fashionable inner city communities, became its leader. Labour, which once styled itself The People’s Party is now the rich, trendy, virtue signalling party. And with its core support among immigrant communities and university brainwahed media professionals, it has little need to concern itself with the white working class, many of whom will always vote Labour for the welfare benefits, while others continue to vote for the party because their fathers and grandfathers did.
When seven Members of Parliament (MPs) announced their resignation today, not only did they come from a broad political spectrum within the party and a wide age range, they all cited the party’s anti – Semitism under Corbyn’s leadership as their main reason for leaving. They are:
The prominent role taken buy Ummuna in the breakaway suggests this group are a Blairite, globalist faction and even further removed from the party’s working class gras roots than Corbyn’s far left, intellectual supporters.
Stephen Kinnock MP, son of the former Labour leader Neil Kinnock, had predicted that there would “probably be some kind of splintering” over the weekend, when he urged the rebels to “stay in and fight” to take the party back from the extreme left Momentum group unleashed by Stalinist deputy leaders John McDonnell. which has become the source of most anti – Semitism within the Labour movement?
But how and when did the party that were it honest would call itself “The Jew – hating Labour Party,” become anti – Semitic? How is partly the lurch to the left under Corbyn, with his supporters being formly on the side of victim-state Palestine in their low key war with capitalst Israel, ‘when’ is quite recently it seems.
Jewish Labour MP Luciana Berger, explaining her decision to leave Labour at a press conference this morning, said she was “embarrassed and ashamed” by the party that was once known for its Jewish roots in Britain’s major cities. She has frequently spoken out about the abuse she has received from fellow Labour members in recent years, challenged Corbyn on his alleged anti-Semitism problem, and even had a bodyguard at last year’s Labour conference.
Also speaking at the launch of the new ‘Independent Group’ of ‘centrist’ (i.e. Europhile,) Members of Parliament who have, after much speculation, finally launched a break away from the Labour Party. Chukka Umunna has complained of a “broken” politics with parties that can’t represent the key political factors of the day. It is clear that Umunna is one of the leading figures behind this new party that isn’t yet a party, so it is worth looking at his comments to get a feel for where the group will position itself on the political spectrum, beyond the anti – Semitism headlines, Brexit and the crime wave in Sadiq Khan’s London.
The big issue behind Umunna’s comments is a clear feeling that Britain’s politics is “broken” — his colleagues in the group also spoke of voters feeling “politically homeless”. In fact he has taken the wromg path by choosing the globalist route, Labour’s traditional voters in the old industrial areas of Britain are abandoning Labour because they feel the party has abandoned its working clas supporters, and here is Ummuna,talking to billionaires and corporate investors, rather than the people whose votes he needs.
Following the schism, Dr Moshe Kantor, the President of the European Jewish Congress, spoke out to further highlight Labour’s anti-Semitism problem, calling on Corbyn himself to act to stamp out the hate within his party.
