So, what is this #LabourParty #Antisemitism (AS) settlement all about in context of #JeremyCorbyn's (JC) statement? 7 steps:

1. Whistle blowers accuse #JC of AS in #Panorama doc.

2. #LabourParty under #JC issues a statement saying whistle-blowers were 'politically motivated'
3. 'politically motivated' Statement is later proved very credible by revelations contained in #LabourLeaks, which included allegations that party had deliberately withheld AS complaints to make the leadership/#JC looks bad.

Sources step 5 here:

4. Whistle-blowers THEN sued #JC for saying they were 'politically motivated' saying it was 'defamation'

5. Legal advice given to #LabourParty saying that they have a very strong chance of wining this defamation case.

There’s been a surge in walking and cycling in the #pandemic. Government has promised extra billions. It’s what @TheGreenParty has campaigned for, for many years. So how is it looking in #Sheffield?

A THREAD ...
To set the scene … since the 1960s, Sheffield had been developed to encourage the private car. Politicians competed for the motorist’s vote.

democracy.sheffield.gov.uk/mgAi.aspx?ID=9…
The £2 billion, 25-year #PFI contract with #Amey failed to enhance safe pedestrian crossings or walking routes, safe cycling facilities, safe dropped kerbs for wheelchair users, safe routes to school.

It was a contract to keep roads just as they had been 25 years previously.

Around 5 years ago I first encountered the vitriolic attacks on #women asserting their right to politically self-organise from so-called trans-rights activists in a socialist group I associated with at the time. Having been active in radical left... /1

Corbyn was asked to resign repeatedly & refused. There was real crisis in the #LabourParty, he was not competent to lead it & NOW he resigns, just like David Bl**dy Cameron after he caused the Brexit disaster. Closet leaver. Now everyone is screwed & for what?
#GeneralElection19
Democrats better pay close attention. If #impeachment has taught us nothing else it has confirmed what some of us have written about for years now: The GOP is not giving up Trump. They don't care what you think and they are not going to roll over for Biden, like he claims.
Boris Johnson is a right monster and yet he won. AGAIN. In a landslide. Americans cannot afford to be deluded about what is in GOP hearts--especially with the economy stable. If you think a one-termer is the answer, welcome to Brexit 2.0.

Hey. We’re new to Twitter. To open our account, we’ve analysed what MPs earned - in addition to their salaries - in the last Parliament. MPs declare such earnings, but in a super unstructured way. So, we’ve written some code to create a neat dataset of all their declarations.
Since the last #GeneralElection, MPs have earned £8.4 million in addition to their parliamentary salary (an average of £12,900 per MP).
Over half of this £8.4million was earned by just 15 MPs.
#BorisJohnson earned the most, nearly £800,000. That’s equivalent to an additional £27,440 a month. The other 14 top-earners were all men too…

Recently Ellie Reeves #Labour MP was reportedly facing a vote of "No Confidence" and "Deselection" @elliereeves received a lot of support from Jess Phillips, Tom Watson etc. No motion was tabled with her CLP so the furore over a pregnant Labour MP being deselected was nonsense.
So let us move on about 1 week from this bogus story to the equally spurious #PanoramaHatchetJob about #Labour and #Antisemitism The usual suspects showed their sham horror of the apparent problems in Labour. #TomWatson #jessphillips
Tom Watson belittled, harangued, bullied and called into question the reliability and fitness of @JennieGenSec to act as General Secretary. Some might question my point on reliability etc. But the image I have attached which Watson and Phillips promote does exactly that.

The philosophy of science seems distant from political & everyday life. But it maps the fuzzy border between faith & rational thought about facts. "When you tell me I'm wrong you prove that I'm right!" Witch-finders & Freudians unite! You have nothing to lose but your brains:
An example from @Jonathan_K_Cook: "McCarthyism is not just the hounding of someone because their views are unpopular. It is the creation...of a perfect, self-rationalising system of incrimination...the modern political parallel of the witch hunt." jonathan-cook.net/blog/2019-02-2…
In UK politics an epidemic of accusations of antisemitism against @jeremycorbyn & the #LabourParty seems to be a proxy indicator of awareness & fear in some parts of our political world that #JeremyCorbyn's fairly relentless focus on #Austerity & Tory misdeeds does get results.

For many years I have known about the quote in the image. Heard people repeat it, others critique it. Today I read it in full for the first time and made a decision. I want to say. #LifeistooshortRachelRiley
Faith in almighty being draws us to an #AfterLife somewhere that allows us to escape from the drudgery, mundane or painful lives that we lead. Take away the hope of an Afterlife and you have to learn to live today! Rachel Riley is an intelligent successful minor celebrity.
Yet she seems to hate #JeremyCorbyn #UKLabour so much so she has made it a mission in life to hold them accountable for all the wrongs in the world. Well Rachel life is too short to hate so time to let some light in and be happy.
so I hope #RachelRileyFindsHappiness

Luciana Berger cited #Labour becoming "institutionally #AntiSemitic" as a key reason for quitting the party.

Despite all the evidence, there are those who still deny the severity of #LabourAntisemitism. Here's a thread detailing how institutionalised it truly is...
Starting at the very top with @JeremyCorbyn.

He infamously referred to #Hamas and #Hezbollah as "friends". Both organisations call for the extermination of #Israel, and regularly carry out attacks against #Jews. They're also both officially classified as #terrorist groups.
Perhaps the most well-known incident is #Corbyn's attendance at a wreath-laying ceremony in Tunisia in 2014, which honoured the terrorists who murdered 11 #Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics. Mr Corbyn claimed to be "present but not involved".

@DanyLouise What a disingenuous resignation letter. Please remove Labour from your profile as you have now resigned. As for the conspiracy theorist allegation I do not know the person in question but since when is questioning the events of 9/11 a crime? @silverrich39 @FightingGran

Labour Against the Witchhunt wouldn't even report a Nazi.

LAW have welcomed former MP Jim Sheridan's reinstatement by the party. He was suspended last summer over an #antisemitic statement he posted on Facebook. But LAW don't accept he did anything wrong in the first place. /1
When Labour members err, there ought to be opportunity for them to learn from the experience and make amends. But comrade Sheridan's statement after his suspension was lifted suggested his only regret was getting caught and he appeared to blame those who complained about him. /2
Let's recall what got him into trouble: Sheridan declared he had lost respect and empathy for an entire ethnic group - "the Jewish community" - due to events in @UKLabour. The #Holocaust, pogroms and persecution no longer moved him because of "their Blairite plotters". /3

In August 2018 Jim Sheridan a Labour Councillor was reported to the Labour Party for #Antisemitic comments. Sheridan stated that he had lost respect and empathy for the Jewish community.
I am not going to defend his statement. It appears to have been used in frustration at what he perceived to be unwarranted levels of #Antisemitic allegations against the #LabourParty Jim Sheridan has since apologised and been reinstated with a warning.
But what was behind his frustration? Why would someone who stated he had supported the Jewish Community all his adult life, suddenly say he had lost empathy for them? Perhaps we should look at the broader picture?

How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."
