I've realised what really annoys the crank left. The crank left are not used to minorities speaking in such clarity and taking control over their own destinies. The crank left take a paternalistic or even imperialistic attitude towards minorities.
An I know best attitude.
Sometimes it gets it right. Sometimes it gets it wrong.
But it is prob the most democratic forum of any minority community in the UK.
Most synagogues are members of the Board of Deputies. Those that are not are not usually due to the cost of membership as opposed to any ideological opposition.
Its this same attitude that puts off other second and third generation migrants.
So crank left. You don't know best.
