1. Polite notice:
Unfollow me, block me, but don’t troll me just because you can’t ‘win’ an argument with me.

I don’t use this forum to win arguments. I come here to debate and become more informed. And, sometimes, just to engage in idle banter with friends.
2. I have been on Twitter for many years but only become more active over the last couple of years because of the desperate circumstances we find ourselves in. Yes, I am vocal and passionate and sometimes I might use hyperboles and emotive language.
3. But, I try to back up everything I say with evidence from reliable and factual sources. I may not get it right every time, that’s the point of debating. So please don’t get offended if I produce some facts that ride roughshod over your point of view or personal prejudices.

For The Many

As the sun sets on Jeremy’s last day as Labour Leader it is fitting that #ThankyouJeremyCorbyn is trending.
Jeremy’s leadership has seen the #Labour Party transformed into not only the biggest political party in #Europe
but also transformed into a mass social movement.
A movement which is firmly against austerity and for real change. Jeremy and our newly inspired party came within a whisker of winning in 2017 and has changed the political landscape in this country.
Finally after mass disillusionment in politics, after the #Iraq war and immigration mugs, because of Jeremy’s leadership we have become the party of #peace and #equality The party of socialism, the party that stands up for the many not the few.

1/ This article is everything wrong with @BBCNews and shows why much of its output is propaganda, not journalism. Awful. Going to use this thread to pick it apart piece by piece. It will take a while, so sorry for the gap between posts bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politi… #JeremyCorbyn.
2/ The article - as is usual for the BBC - centres entirely around opinion in the "Westminster village", assuming what a small circle of MPs think is representative of the party and country as a whole. It's the world according to whoever @bbclaurak chose to have coffee with.
3/ This statement goes uncontested: "We're now getting to a position where on the polls we're about even, so that's a step in the right direction." This is false. In the past months, Labour had at points been level with the Tories but it is now consistently 3-4pts behind

Typical characteristic of neoliberalism and identity politics is coming out with a daft remark, then belittling someone else for the same thing. E.g. @Keir_Starmer 'Reopen the schools asap!'...then when it goes tits up: "Boris should not have done that". 1
Showing no insight for their own irresponsible nature. Just acting though nothing had happened and demonstrating in turn their contempt for the public, believing they will be instantly excused..

#eddiemarsan is a guy with a lot of hatred for #JeremyCorbyn. It is obsessive 2
According to Mr Marsan, Corbyn is apparently responsible for his older brother and his shady attributes ! Because you know family relationships are just so simple*.. now let's imagine that a person out of fear, abides the hatred of

Ok. Let's do a little hypothetical mind exercise here.

Imagine we say that Jeremy Corbyn was actually an antisemite.

That would mean all those who worked with him but then decided to "expose him" felt it was acceptable, until he was leader of the opposition.
That would include Margaret Hodge who seemed fine with Jeremy until he became leader, and those who felt his anti war opinions were a bit too extreme.

Those centrists who believe in the pragmatism of small changes over decades so as not to spoil the "great unwashed".
It would mean all those who decided collectively that he hated Jews did NOTHING and said NOTHING for decades,

But then, like a flipped light switch, all decided he was on par with Adolf Hitler.

It is deeply disappointing that @UKLabour (my party) has allowed this racist & utterly regressive #Tory government to present itself as the protector of women's rights & children's safety. The current #Labour stance is wrong in so many ways it is hard to know where to begin. /1
Firstly we must be clear that for the Tories this is a risk-free & cynical act of political expediency that fits with their petty nationalist narrative that presents the left as an aloof "metropolitan elite". The same Tories have impoverished & marginalised women over the... /2
...past decade of austerity and they have failed to act upon the growing tide of male violence & sexual exploitation faced by women & girls. Anyone drawing the conclusion that a vote for the Tories is a vote for women is sadly mistaken. /3

At the exuberant 2017 @UKLabour conference I was privileged to attend a meeting addressed by @ruthserwotka & @cwknews discussing proposed changes to the 2004 Gender Recognition Act that would effectively erase women's & girl's limited & hard-won legal protections. /1
THREAD 👇🏼
The mood of the meeting was in contrast to the rest of conference: the venue had to be kept secret until the last minute as other recent events where women had the temerity to meet with other women to discuss their political, legal & social rights had been harassed & attacked. /2
Not only that but this reactionary proposal from the Tory government, paralysed by the insurgent & radicalising #LabourParty under #JeremyCorbyn's leadership, was tacitly supported by large sections of the labour movement & many other public institutions. /3

Today at 5pm is the deadline for evidence to the Forde Inquiry into the #LabourLeaks. But the mainstream media didn't want us, the voters, to know what was being done to nobble the one chance that we had of defeating the #Tories. Why? Because so many of them had that objective.
That thread shows that if @guardian's journalists had been doing their job, they could have discovered & told us what @JoeRRyle & others had found: "Not only did they not want Labour to win under Corbyn, they seemed to be actively trying to lose." opendemocracy.net/en/opendemocra…
How do we know for a fact that so many MSM journalists didn't want #JeremyCorbyn to succeed, or at best were merely 'doing the job' their employers had told them to do? @lborouniversity has the numbers for #GE2019: lboro.ac.uk/news-events/ge…

Who dominates the debate about #Brexit 🇪🇺 in the #UK 🇬🇧? 📢 In this new article in #PRX (@ecpr's new #OpenAccess journal) @hoennige, @dominic_nyhuis, @PhiMeyer, @SusumuShikano & I analyse visibility bias and mentions of MPs in reporting on #Brexit | doi.org/10.1080/247473… 1/7
Using automated text analysis of 58,247 newspaper articles published July 2017-March 2019, we find
1) #ConservativeParty MPs were strongly overrepresented in ALL (!) newspapers - irrespective of left/right or pro/anti-#Brexit position (71% of all MP mentions vs 48% of seats) 2/7
2) #ConservativeParty backbenchers who were part of pro-#Brexit pressure groups #LeaveMeansLeave or #EuropeanResearchGroup were overrepresented among Con backbenchers, yet the same was not true for backbench members of the anti-Brexit #PeoplesVote campaign 3/7

...accusations of anti-Semitism that divided the Labour left and undermined the only genuinely pro-working class, anti-racist & internationalist leader our party has ever had: #JeremyCorbyn. This is critical because part of the left capitulated to the smears, sealing our fate. /2
Anyone on the left who believes that if we keep our mouths shut about atrocities perpetrated by #ApartheidIsrael, if we quietly back away from #BDS & #Palestine solidarity, if we silent while those falsely accused of anti-Semitism are silenced & expelled is DELUSIONAL. /3

The right-wing of @UKLabour, led by @Keir_Starmer & cheered-on by the anti-Labour press are very publicly sticking the knife into the #Labour left by sacking #RebeccaLongBailey. What do the sectarian left do? Silent: @workersliberty, the @Clarion_Mag, @MomentumInt_. /1
Some of their supporters give the game away, dishonestly claiming that #MaxinePeake (and by association @RLong_Bailey) peddled an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. No surprise as the #Islamophobic @workersliberty have been giving left cover to false claims of AS all along. /2
This organisation and their assorted fronts are not part of the left. They act solely in the interest of their own organisation and as a result not only aided the downfall of #JeremyCorbyn but also scandalously British imperialism's military intervention in Syria & beyond. /3

So the talented & principled @MPeakeOfficial has got the #Labour right, centrists & the anti-Labour right in a strop because she told some uncomfortable truths:
1. Those who abandoned/attacked #JeremyCorbyn & Labour in 2019 are responsible for the deadly & racist mess we... /1
...are currently suffering under Johnson & Cummings. Your mess, you own it - end of.
2. That the apartheid Israeli state has been providing training in extremely violent militarised policing tactics not only to US police forces but also, for example, to the @metpoliceuk's... /2
...assassination squad who murdered Brazilian carpenter Jean Charles de Menezes - essentially for being black & running away terrified from unidentified men chasing him waving guns.
And no this is NOT anti-Semitic, it is simply the truth.

Thread. Corbyn gave hope to 1000s of young people, who joined Labour & became politically active. They have written him a thank you letter.
This is the hate & abuse they face on Twitter from anonymous hatefilled trolls. #JeremyCorbyn #Labour #antisemitism 1/6
All of these tweets have been directed to London Young Labour because they wrote a thank you letter to #JeremyCorbyn the man who inspired them. We can see with our own eyes who the real haters are. 2/6

One day after #GE2019, @guardian let Kenneth Stern (who drafted the #IHRA definition of Antisemitism) say if "[Jared] Kushner or I had been born into a Palestinian family displaced in 1948, we might have a different view of Zionism, & that need not be because we vilify Jews."
Kenneth Stern wrote in @guardian with readers in the #US in mind. He explained that @ZOA_National sees the #IHRA definition as stopping @NationalSJP from calling for ‘#intifada’. But he says @NationalSJP has the right to make “calls” he doesn't like. "That’s called free speech."
Here @BoardofDeputies has told candidates in the #LabourLeader elections to apply the #IHRA definition "with all its examples & clauses", "without qualification". But, as @JVoiceLabour explains, they don't require the #IHRA definition of others. Why not? jewishvoiceforlabour.org.uk/statement/resp…

1) brief thread about @jessphillips who wants people to trust her ! You lied about, smeared & constantly undermined #JeremyCorbyn horribly, victimised #MarcWadsworth with fake accusations of antisemitism knowing it was false but sided with a bunch of liars. #jessphillips
2) at every opportunity you back-stabbed @jeremycorbyn while he was facing the most dirty mendacious campaign any politician has faced in the UK, not once did you have the conscience or integrity to defend a very decent man. Instead you sided with vindictive MP’s #jessphillips
3) Corbyn was so popular with many, was a man for peace & social justice & he was willing to respect the Brexit referendum but you lot stopped him knowing well Brexiteers would turn against him. You flirted with Tories, defectors, basically anyone anti Corbyn

One of key reasons why #Labour & #Corbyn got hammered is because many voters swallowed the propaganda campaign of Corbyn being an 'antisemite' & 'IRA sympthiser' w/much of lies coming from benches of Labour itself. Jeremy then topped himself by pivoting on #Brexit because...
2) ... he was weak and beaten into a corner and at the mercy of the traitors & establishment operatives embedded in his own party. By dithering on #Brexit he was a goner, and his adversaries knew that full well. Blairites handed Tories a mandate in order to slay #JeremyCorbyn...
3).... it's a simple as that. It was a NeoLiberal coup for sure, but to be honest if half the #Labour voters were not smart enough to see what was happening in front of them, then they deserve to lose big - many were too easily led by deceivers at The Guardian etc, still aloof...

Last night after an incident in London in which members of the public were killed #FrancesBarber took the opportunity to link #JeremyCorbyn to the act of terror! In her eagerness to smear #Corbyn with the charge of #Antisemitism she herself made antisemitic comments
You may perhaps think that this is just a one off Jibe but it is not.
#Antisemitism & #Racism needs to be rooted out wherever it raises its head. Unfortunately #FrancesBarber is not really concerned about #Antisemitism rather she likes to focus her hate on #JC4PM Corbyn's actions would suggest not! bit.ly/35MONcn @threadreaderapp "Unroll"

Am late to the #CarolineLucas summer plan for all white remain govt devoted to stopping democracy ... but the race issue is not my chief sadness.
Lucas had 3 chances to support:
-a Remain voting
-Female
-Prime Minister who sought to compromise...Lucas decided to play politics1/
If #JeremyCorbyn is elected our Prine Minister in a general election he is my #PrimeMinister ... even though I consider him a totally flawed individual, who loves our enemies and does not support our allies, with a Marxist for a Chancellor ... that is how democracy works 2/
I would have more respect for Lucas if she made it clear that her votes in @HouseofCommons seek to block #Brexit purely for personal / political reasons. She does not accept a democratic decision of the people ... it’s that simple. End of. 3/

Policies that help many, are popular with many, but disliked by a few!
@MatherWallace @bernardsmernard When the few with invested interests feel threatened because of change or scrutiny they can only smear! it is difficult for them to debate and criticise popular ideas and policies. So what do the few with money and influence do?
@MatherWallace @bernardsmernard They accuse the advocate for change of being!

The forthcoming @BorisJohnson @jeremycorbyn #BrexitDeal - a thread.
The UK has 3 options - #NoDealBrexit, #WithdrawalAgreement or #Remain. Most Tory Party members back BJ for leader, most Lab members back JC. In both cases most members would back their Brexit decisions. 1/
Corbyn's two main Brexit advisers are #SeumasMilne & #AndrewMurray (who also still works for Len McCluskey in Unite). In Oct18 Murray argued that Lab should back May's deal to avoid NoDeal. 2/

bit.ly/2GrccoN As far as I am aware the CAA are a charitable organisation. I believe this has been highlighted before. As a charitable organisation they are breaking the @ChtyCommission guidelines. Charities are not meant to engage in political activity @JVoiceLabour
I also suspect that they could be deemed to be promoting hate against a person subjecting him to potential violent attacks. The Campaign Against Antisemitism are a disgrace and should be investigated @metpoliceuk @simonmaginn @shaunjlawson @skwawkbox @xpressanny @Rachael_Swindon
bit.ly/2GrccoN Campaign Against Antisemitism has a Registered Charity Number 1163790 IMHO the CAA fails to meet the guidelines set out by the Charity Commission bit.ly/1Blr55J @ChtyCommission @UKChange @0Calamity @mojos55 @mac123_ @MidWalesMike @RespectIsVital
