1/ Really important report by @CommissionCE today explores how hate creates space for the “moral case for violence” while stopping short of the threshold for criminal prosecution.…
2/ Sara Khan, the Lead Commissioner (and formerly CEO of Inspire), deserves a lot of credit for taking on all forms of hate in this report and recognising how hate and intolerance on any side breeds further hate on all sides and can legitimate extremism and violence.
3/ UK anti-hate infrastructure has at times been unfairly labelled as inherently racist and anti-Muslim, because it grew considerably in response to Islamist terrorism. I'm proud that people like Sara, from the Muslim community, lead the fight for tolerance and against hate.

1/ This week saw a perfect, utterly depressing example of the brittle, angry, accusatory style of social media discourse bleeding into our offline world, in this instance, the chamber of the House of Commons.
2/ The reason social media is so important in politics is because it purports to approximate the vox populi. But it doesn’t. The notifications that flash up on MP’s screens are from folks engaged and motivated enough to get in touch.
3/ So they’re either laudatory – which are of course lovely to receive. Or horrible – which are not. This serves to normalise a sense among political and media classes that the nation is irrevocably polarised and split.

This is an excellent report on minimizing harm to yourself & counteracting the flood of trolling anyone fighting #LabourAntisemitism has to deal with.
Its early days in learning how to combat the rise of extremism via social media.1/6
Although the report specifies in relation to high profile people with large followers there are lessons in it for smaller pressure groups & campaigners against #LabourAntisemitism who are reltlessly targeted by Novara media, sqwawkbox, momentum & other @UKLabour troll farms. 2/6
The most important one for me is block, report, record and if applicable involve the police or defamation lawyers.
The core of @LabourAgainstAS from the start was to catalogue antisemitism within @UKLabour for the purpose of reporting.
This catalogue is now huge.3/6
