My latest. This is the first of a three-part series about antisemitism and the left. Part 2 will look at the EHRC report; part 3 at Corbyn's suspension.

But the first part, as you'll see, is a lot more personal. It's about my own trauma. Deep trauma.

The trauma of what happens when you grow up in a family horribly impacted by what the Nazis did. Even third generation survivors, like myself, can be horrendously affected. It's something that should be discussed far, far more.

Part 2 will follow in a couple of days or so.

Whenever I see Jeremy Corbyn interviewed nowadays, I'm always shocked. Shocked by his gaunt, exhausted appearance. He's aged 20 years in no time.

And the reason I'm shocked is: that was done to him. By a witchhunt the likes of which I've never seen done to anyone else anywhere.
There's people out there who won't be satisfied until the poor man's in a box. With gold handles.

Movements which speak of 'solidarity' do not do to decent, kind people.
Do you know what I think brought him down? Shame. On two levels:

1. Being made to feel ashamed for even existing for day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, by a disgusting daily drumbeat of hysteria and nonsense.

Es an der Zeit die größte Terrororganisation der Welt zu verlassen und aufzulösen.
Den US/NATO-Kriegs-&Terrorismus-Komplex zusammen mit den Geheimdiensten CIA/NSA/MI6/Mossad/BND....den Saudis/Israel/Al-Qaida-ISIS..
Sind die Menschen im Westen lernfähig oder gibt es im Westen immer noch nichts Neues?
Wie viele immer unglaubwürdigere Lügen und Märchen müssen ihnen erzählt werden, bevor sie anfangen, dies zu hinterfragen?
Den Menschen im Westen wird das selbstständige Denken nicht mehr beigebracht sondern gezielt abgewöhnt.
Stattdessen wird Ihnen immer mehr beigebracht, was sie denken sollen und dürfen
Die Gesellschaft wird auf betreutes Denken statt selbständiges, unabhängiges Denken ausgerichtet

I see the antisemitic abuse is starting early...

Same abuse and lies we've heard since 2015. #EHRCReport won't change the hate from these @UKLabour supporters.

Limbering-up for the real rage-fest, due to start at 1000...

Höhöhö. After years of reliably having the most fashionable opinion on everything, and enjoying the applause you get for it, Mellers has finally expressed one very mildly unfashionable opinion, possibly for the first time in his life.
And you won't believe what happened next.
In these situations, why do these people never pause, and think:
"Hmmm, maybe all this applause I used to get for years wasn't really because what I said was so brilliant. Maybe it was just because I told people what they wanted to hear. And now I've seen what happens if I don't"
That awful moment when you realise: You don't have "fans". You have trendy opinions. The moment you stop expressing trendy opinions, and express an un-trendy one, your former "fans" will turn against you, quicker than you can type #JC4PM or #IStandWithJeremyCorbyn.
